Match Betting (1x2)

Nigel Pearson’s first match in charge of Watford FC was on Saturday 14 December, with his Hornets team giving a good account of themselves at Anfield despite losing the match by a 2-0 scoreline.

The manager will now hope that they can repeat that level of performance at Vicarage Road, with BetVictor offering odds of 6/1 that the Hertfordshire club become the first team to beat Liverpool this season.

It sounds somewhat implausible that Watford can land a victory although they have been showing lots of fight under Pearson and we should bear in mind that they were in cruise control against Everton in their previous home match before relinquishing a two-goal lead.

Previously to this, Watford were very strong at home and there were consecutive wins over Manchester United, Aston Villa and Wolves.

However, Liverpool are a force to be reckoned with and Unibet offer 4/9 that the Reds continue to steam towards that first Premier League title in thirty years, with Jurgen Klopp wanting his team to continue to be ruthless.

The Reds have won twelve of their thirteen matches on the road and it’s only been Manchester United who have managed to thwart them, although Watford would dearly love to land a point from this clash.

The draw is trading at 18/5 with William Hill and that would be a positive outcome for a team trying to stay in the top flight, although it will be interesting to see whether the home team approach this game in a positive attacking mode or sitting back and forming a defensive shape.

Asian Handicap

Liverpool have enjoyed bags of victories by convincing margins this season, with the Reds available at 8/11 with BetVictor off a -1 goal mark, with money back if Klopp’s side claim a single goal win and a profit if they are able to land a two-goal margin of victory.

Those looking for a bigger price can get 23/18 about Liverpool -1.5 which means you need a two-goal margin of victory, although Watford might be capable of keeping things considerably tighter.

Watford are 13/20 with a +1.5 goal advantage and it’s been noticeable that their home form has been excellent under Pearson since he took charge.

Both Teams to Score

Liverpool have been claiming multiple victories without conceding in recent weeks and you can get 8/5 with BetVictor that the Reds win the game to nil, with the defence proving to be strong for several months.

You can get 21/20 with BetVictor about the “No” option on the Both Teams to Score market and that includes a goalless draw along with the possibility that at least one team fails to find the net.

With regard to the “Yes” option, the odds of 8/11 are available that the net bulges at both ends although we prefer the opposite price.
