Home form comprises of 3 wins, 3 draws and 5 defeats with 14 goals scored and 23 conceded

The Betting

Match Result: All Markets

Watford 14/10

Draw 47/20

Southampton 41/20

Note, odds quoted are an approximate average and are correct at the time of last update but are subject to change

Verdict:

The Watford stats suggest goals and 5 of their last 6 league outings have obliged for backers of over 2.5. However I’m also bearing in mind Southampton’s clean sheet at Old Trafford and a morale boosting FA Cup win in a tricky visit to Fulham where they also kept a clean sheet.

After much consideration I will go with 2-3 goals in total.

Bet: Total goals 2-3 at 19/20
