Bet of the Day: Potters to crack away at Watford

Hornets are handily priced for victory

Watford have what it takes to get back to winning ways at home to Stoke City this afternoon.

The Hornets may have suffered a 4-2 defeat at Chelsea last time out, but the result doesn’t tell the full story. At 2-1 up in the contest, Marco Silva’s side had chances to build on their lead and go further ahead.

Such a fine performance at Stamford Bridge, coupled with their good early season form, makes them easy to back at home to Stoke City today. The Potters have lost five of their last six games and are hemorrhaging goals at an alarming rate.

With Watford back on home soil, they’re Coral’s Bet of the Day to beat Stoke City this afternoon at even-money.

Goals, goals, goals

Watford like to score and Stoke like to concede, so it should be a goal-filled contest at Vicarage Road. In total, fixtures involving the Hornets this season have seen 37 goals. Meanwhile, the visitors have conceded 14 in their last four matches.

The hosts are the favourites for the game and that makes them worth doubling up on at 11/5 to win and for there to be Over 2.5 Goals in the match. Backing Over 2.5 Goals by itself will still return a handy profit at 20/23.

Hertfordshire’s Samba star

Richarlison has lit up the Premier League since arriving from Fluminense in the summer. The 20-year-old has hit three goals in 10 appearances so far as Watford have climbed to sixth in the table.

Up against a leaky Potters defence, the Brazilian has the trickery and the power to find the net for the first time at Vicarage Road. He’s 15/8 to net Anytime and 5/1 to Score First.
