Betting Tip: Watford @ 15/4 with bet365

Watford are four points better off than Chelsea in the Premier League table, although the bookies take a dim view of their chances of victory on Wednesday night.

The Hornets are a chunky 15/4 with bet365 to win the BT Sport-televised encounter and there won’t be many occasions when you can side with a team at this price that have a seriously better chance of winning than their odds suggest.

It was only a few weeks ago that the teams played out a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge and Watford will certainly not be looking for just the one point from an encounter against a side who have only won three of eleven away clashes.

Consecutive wins over Newcastle and Nottingham Forest have steadied the ship, with Watford having generally been a match for the best teams at Vicarage Road this term.

Yes, they lost 2-1 to Manchester City and Tottenham, although they were particularly unlucky against the former after taking the lead and looking in control of the match.

It’s a settled team that Quique Sanchez Flores has established, with Etienne Capoue and Ben Watson in the engine room and a touch of scoring class provided by Odion Ighalo.

Chelsea tore strips off MK Dons on Sunday although this is a different kettle of fish and the John Terry announcement after that match was plain weird in terms of timing.

Terry and the rest of the Blues defence are there to be attacked as Everton demonstrated recently when drawing 3-3 at the Bridge and we simply can’t pass up the chance to punt on Watford here.
