Bitesize Prediction: Watford vs Brentford – 16/04/22

Competition: Premier League

Market: Brentford win

Odds: 3/2 @ 888sport

Looking to extend on what has been a hugely impressive run of form, a high-flying Brentford will make the trip to Watford on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, last seen putting in another woeful display on home soil, it is fair to say that Watford find themselves at the heart of a Premier League nightmare once again. Eventually getting hit with a dreadful 3-0 drumming at the hands of Leeds, Roy Hodgson has failed to offer the Hornets any kind of boost since arriving at the club. Sat in the bottom-three and with many tipping them as the standout pick to be hit with an immediate Championship return, the one-time England boss really finds growing pressure on his shoulders. Now picking up just a single top-flight win since February 19th, Watford have also continued to break a string of unwanted records on home soil. It should be noted, Saturday’s hosts have remarkably lost each of their last nine straight contests in front of their own supporters, a run that stems back to November 20th.

As for the visitors, while Watford might find themselves at the heart of a relegation scrap, Brentford should find the mood in their camp at a red-hot high. Shocking almost everyone across the Premier League as they landed a stunning 4-1 romp away at Chelsea earlier in the month, Thomas Frank’s men managed to keep up that momentum last time out. Eventually picking up a deserved 2-0 win against Europa League semi-finalists West Ham, the Bees have gained a host of plaudits since making their top-flight debut. Smelling a golden chance to lay down another marker on Saturday afternoon, the west London outfit are really ending the 2021/22 campaign with a flurry. Winning four of their last five Premier Leafye matchups on either side of March’s international break, we’re backing an away victory here that can be found at attractive odds.
