Brighton and Hove Albion vs Watford
Saturday 8th February 2020
FA Premier League, AMEX Stadium.
Live on BT Sport 1 HD – Kick Off: 17:30 GMT
Brighton and Hove Albion will host Watford in a crucial match-up down the bottom end of the Premier League this Saturday evening.
The Seagulls have hit some rocky form in the league and have failed to win a match in their last five outings. Meanwhile, Watford have also suffered some setbacks in their bid to escape the relegation zone.
Brighton and Hove Albion are priced at 11/10 to win this match by SkyBet and claim three huge points in their bid for survival. Graham Potters side are currently 15th in the standings, just two points above the drop zone and three points above their opponents who are in 19th. Their home form has not been great with just one win in their last six at the AMEX.
Going forward, striker Neal Maupay has quickly proven his summer price tag was worth it with seven goals to his name. He is priced at 13/8 to score anytime.
Watford are priced at 5/2 to win the match and potentially climb out of the relegation places. The Hornets are in a much better position than before Nigel Pearson arrived, but there is still plenty of work to do. The visitors are without a win in four across all competitions and will want revenge for the reverse fixture earlier this season where they were beaten 3-0.
They have struggled for goals, but front man Troy Deeney will cause headaches for Brighton with his physical presence. He is priced at 6/4 to score anytime.
The referee for this match will be Kevin Friend. Contrary to his second name, the official has not been a ‘friend’ to many players this season and has an average of 39.7 booking points from his 16 topflight matches.
Brighton and Hove Albion vs Watford will be televised on BT Sport 1 HD and kicks off at 17:30.
Prediction: Brighton and Hove Albion 1-1 Watford
– Neither side have proven they have what it takes to see out a victory in recent weeks and with a lot on the line, both cannot afford to lose.
