West Ham v Watford Betting Tips: London derby a key relegation battle

| 17.07.2020

West Ham host Watford in what could be a decisive game in the battle to avoid relegation tonight.

A win for either side would all but secure their Premier League status barring a significant goal difference swing, with the loser perilously positioned with two games to play.

With safety being worth a reported £120m, there’s plenty on the line. Will the Hammers be blowing bubbles or will the Hornets be bursting them?


The last time West Ham won back-to-back Premier League games was in August against Norwich and then tonight’s opponents Watford. They are 13/10 to repeat the feat. Watford are 11/5 to claim all three points whilst a draw is 2/1.

Watford have lost their last four away games without scoring, however, and the Irons are 13/5 to win to nil. But the Hertfordshire side have won their last two matches 2-1, and a third-straight win by that scoreline is 10/1.


David Moyes could name an unchanged side after the 4-0 thumping of Norwich. Sébastien Haller bagged a brace when these sides met at Vicarage Road and could provide an exciting option from the bench.

Watford have drawn a blank in nine of their eleven defeats on the road this season. This means the Hornets’ need for an away goal may see a switch to 4-4-2 with Danny Welbeck partnering Troy Deeney up front.

Etienne Capoue will have a job to do if Watford are to gain three crucial points tonight


After his four goals at Norwich, Michail Antonio has six goals and an assist in his last four games. He’s 4/1 to open the scoring tonight and 18/1 to score and assist.

Watford’s talisman Deeney is 7/4 to score anytime and 10/1 to bag another brace. Welbeck got back on the scoresheet in spectacular style ten days ago with an overhead kick and is 3/1 to score tonight.
