Watford vs Leicester Betting Tips

Watford is in 17th place in the Premier League's standings with 27 points, and it is involved in the relegation fight this year.

Just before the forced stop, The Hornets incredibly beat the leaders Liverpool 3-0, right at this stadium, which was truly an amazing achievement.

Leicester, however, occupies the 3rd place in the ranking with 53 points, -4 from the Champions League zone.

Before the three months pause, The Foxes had defeated Aston Villa 4-0.

The betting odds are perfectly balanced, and no clear favourite is pointed out before the game, according to the bookmakers.

The last draw that we saw in this clash was in 2014, so we believe that this Saturday is the ideal time for a draw, which is also paid quite well.

Watford vs Leicester Match Overview

The unexpected situation and the 3-month pause can help Watford which had collected just 4 points in 5 games played in February and March.

Hosts remain in the bottom of the standings with a high risk of possible relegation and must gather points in order to keep their place in the Premier League.

Nigel Pearson's men will have to focus on internal performance, and this game can be counted as a crucial challenge.

At Vicarage Road comes a formation that has two successes in a row, 1-0 in the Fa Cup against Birmingham, and the one mentioned above 4-0 against Aston Villa, which interrupted a negative series of 5 games (3 defeats and 2 draws).

Brendan Rodgers' men are going into this game after tough times, where they were because of the "short bench".

The little choice that the manager has is a serious test, and he should handle it in order to keep Leicester's place in top 4 of the England Premier League.

There are 9 direct clashes played on Vicarage Road since 2010, and the balance is clearly in favour of the hosts which has won 7 times.

There are two victories for Leicester, which is an interesting fact, this stadium is just inhospitable to the Foxes. Leicester's last win came in 2016, the year of the incredible title won by the men of Claudio Ranieri.
