Burnley v Watford tips: Back the draw
There is a considerable recent history of Burnley and Watford drawing their games, so Coral football experts have no hesitation in making a share of the spoils their bet of the day for September 26th ahead of Monday Night Football.
Here’s a more detailed look about why this is among our top tips for this Premier League encounter…
Each of the last four (and five in six) head-to-heads between the Clarets and Hornets have finished level, and that stat especially makes the 9/4 on offer for yet another draw very tempting.
Styles clash gives share of spoils a real shout
The team news also appears to support backing honours to end even yet again. Burnley frontman Andre Gray starts a suspension, but Watford are without right back Daryl Janmaat with fellow defenders Jose Holebas and Younes Kaboul doubtful.
While Gray isn’t there to exploit this, Wales striker Sam Vokes has scored against the Hornets for Sean Dyche’s side and two other clubs. Canada midfielder Scott Arfield has also netted in this fixture before.
Troy Deeney is the obvious goal threat for Watford, supplemented by strike partner Odion Igahlo and Etienne Capoue, who is in the form of his life.
When it comes to Burnley v Watford tips, then, taking the odds for a draw does look splendid value at 9/4 in what promises to be an open game of football where a clash of tactics and styles looks assured.
