Watford - Manchester City betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 18:30 on 04/12/2021 played @ Vicarage Road Stadium refereed by Kevin Friend

The game is heavily lopsided in the visitors’ favour – for instance, most bookies are offering 17.50 odds on a home win. The hosts are no doubt in a difficult situation and don’t have much hope of overcoming Manchester City.

City are expected to win this match, which is made quite clear by the 1.26 odds that can be found with most bookies. The odds are not so short as to make an Away Win bet not worth taking, though, which also implies a certain degree of risk.

The previous round didn’t end well for Watford, though it wasn’t a catastrophe either. They got by with a narrow 1:2 home loss against Chelsea after a draw in the first half – which seems bad before you consider the 11.50 odds on them winning.

The Sky Blues were on an away match at Aston Villa last round and brought home three points after some solid overall gameplay throughout the match. It may have been close at 1:2, but an away win is always welcome.

Looking over the home team’s recent record, we can see a worrying trend. They’ve conceded more than 5 goals over the past 3 matches alone, indicating problems in their defensive lineup.

This match might present a rare opportunity to go for an Over 4.5 Goals bet. Manchester City have netted 7 goals in each of their previous 3 games – which is quite a track record.

We can use last season’s results as a nice starting point in gauging the situation. A quick look at the 1.26 price on an away win makes it easy to understand. They soundly defeated The Hornets with a steady goal difference.

On top of being considered underdogs, the home team is forced to play with a limited roster. With Francisco Sierralta, Ken Sema, Ismaila Sarr, Oghenekaro Etebo, Kwadwo Baah, Nicolas N'Koulou all unavailable due to injury, they have very limited means at their disposal to beat the odds.

The visitors clearly have the upper hand in this matchup, which is made even more sure thanks to the presence of their entire roster. They’ve had no injuries or suspensions recently, leaving their lineup intact for the game.

An Over 2.5 Goals is a great bet if you like staying on the safe side. The betting value for this market is strong compared even to the 1.47, which makes this an easy betting prediction to make.
