Burnley – Watford betting tips for today, August 19, 2018.
Football: England – Premier League
Tip: Over 1.5 Goals
Match Result: 1:3 WON!!!
|Burnley have just a three-day backup from their successful Europa League qualifier and will be eager to get their first Premier League (PL) goal of the season against Watford.|
|‘The Clarets’ (BUR) ground out a bore draw with Southampton last week, and likely won’t be more comfortable at home – incredibly, their away PL record was better than their home record last season!|
|Watford were too good for Brighton last week thanks to a Roberto Pereyra double. They controlled the game, not allowing a fairly toothless Brighton any shots on target.|
|They are a different side away from Vicarage Road, though – they managed to take just 14 points (W4, D2, L13) on the road in 2017/18.|
|Burnley won both PL clashes with Watford last season – 1-0 at home and 2-1 away. Watford in fact have not won any of their last ten trips to Burnley (D4, L6).|
|Players to watch: Jack Cork ended a long goalscoring drought of over four hours for the Clarets on Thursday night. He netted the winner in Burnley’s last clash with Watford.|
|Pereyra has scored five goals in his last seven games, albeit all at home. Worth noting that he also scored the last time these two sides faced off.|
|Stat attack: Burnley haven’t registered a win in their last three home matches. In 2017/18, Burnley scored 69% of their goals in the second-half.|
|Burnley have not conceded in their last three home fixtures vs Watford (all comps).|
|‘The Hornets’ (WAT) have lost their last six away fixtures, and haven’t won in 12.|
|Watford also haven’t scored in their last eight away fixtures and have conceded in their last six.|
