Watford take on Everton at Vicarage Road looking to get the first home win of 2019. Watford remain in a challenging spot for the Europa League places but the hornets cannot afford to be complacent with Everton just behind them in the league table with a one-point deficit. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Watford manager Javi Gracia has become the club’s longest serving boss in the Premier League and he celebrated the occasion with a goalless draw against Brighton at the AMEX Stadium. Gracia was quite pleased to see Ben Foster help Watford to a point following an impressive performance.
Everton were once again poor and fell to a 2-0 victory against Manchester City at Goodison Park. This was the fourth loss in the last five games for Marco Silva’s men.
The reverse meeting between the two clubs produced a 2-2 draw back at Goodison Park in December. Watford had managed more success over Everton at Vicarage Road after a 1-0 success around the same time last season. Our betting tips and predictions expect a victory for Watford.

Everton manager Marco Silva is coming into a great deal of pressure and the likelihood of the Spaniard losing his job before the end of the campaign is becoming real. Everton might have been expected to challenge for the European spots, but Everton appear in trouble with the team unable to prevent a string of defeats. Watford will look to make the most out of this match since they will be on the road for three consecutive games after this encounter. Our preview would pick a win for Watford.

Watford vs Everton draw odds: 3.50
Everton win odds: 3.30
Correct Score odds
Watford have been quite decent going forward but the team missed Roberto Pereyra in the last match against Brighton. The winger is once again expected to be absent for this encounter along with the impressive Abdoulaye Doucoure. This should drop the total goals in this match, but Everton’s weak defence makes our total goals prediction go with a 2-0 win for the home team.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Everton’s defence has been taken for a ride in recent weeks with the club’s only clean sheet in the last five matches coming against Huddersfield Town, who have the worst offence in the Premier League this season. The Hornets have been incapable of scoring more than 2.5 goals in nine out of the last 10 matches across all competitions. This is unlikely to change with key players like Doucoure and Pereyra unavailable for Javi Gracia. Our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Goals odds and prediction:”]Total goals under 2.5 at 1.90[/bet_tip_now]
First Goalscorer odds
Troy Deeney has been Watford’s second highest scorer of the season with five league goals, but he has been unable to find the back of the net since the first match of 2019. Deeney has also struggled for goals at Vicarage Road with his last goal at this ground coming in September. Still, our first goalscorer prediction would back the 30-year-old.
