Fulham vs Watford Betting Tips: Form Guide

Fulham Haven’t Yet Capitalised On Their Potential

They battled through the playoffs to make their way back into the Premier League for the first time since 2014, and have since been striving to prove that they once again belong in the big leagues.

Fulham started off against some tough competition and sadly failed to raise their game, losing 2-0 against Crystal Palace and 3-1 against Tottenham. Considering the calibre of the competition, these weren’t embarrassing performances by any means, but the sense that Fulham are simply a step or two behind where they need to be was palpable in these contests.

They got their first win in a 4-2 victory over bottom of the league Burnley – perhaps not the toughest challenge, but a win is a win. Their inventive play finally paid off here. It’s this type of versatility which has led to them being slight favourites in many Fulham vs Watford betting tips. They then toughed it out with Brighton in a 2-2 thriller, which once again showed Fulham as an exciting, hungry side.

Unfortunately, Manchester City – as they so often do – poured cold water on their momentum with a comprehensive 3-0 victory. Still, we would say that Fulham’s performances haven’t been best reflected by their results, and they’ve certainly shown enough to be a cause of concern for Watford.

Watford Exceeds Expectations

It may be a surprise that Fulham vs Watford match previews often have the home team to win, considering their recent record. Perhaps they think that Fulham have been more impressive on the pitch? If that is true – and we’re not sure it is – it certainly doesn’t show in the results.

Watford kicked off by beating Brighton 2-0 in a dominant display against a team that Fulham could only grind to a stalemate. They followed this by defeating Burnley in a 3-1 effort. Things got even better with a massive 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace in a result few expected. It was an amazing effort, and once again, another win over a team Fulham failed to beat. That momentum kept going in a stunning 2-1 victory over Tottenham.

Watford have, for the first time since their return to the top-tier, looked like they could threaten the top of the league. Even a 2-1 loss to Manchester United has done little to halt the sense of momentum. It is genuinely a surprise, considering all of this, that their odds of winning this match aren’t a lot higher.

Fulham vs Watford Preview: Recent Meetings

It shouldn’t be too big a surprise, considering that both of these teams have had a tendency to move around football leagues over the last few years, that there are not too many recent games relevant to Fulham vs Watford betting tips for today.

However, the ones we do have give Watford the clear advantage. The last time they met, Watford bested Fulham in a close 1-0 encounter in the league championship. However, there was nothing close about Watford’s astonishing 5-0 mauling of Fulham in 2014.

Before that, things actually swing in Fulham’s favour, however, considering we’re now talking over a decade ago, we doubt that will have much impact on a game in 2018. If Fulham want to take some solace in these results, it’s that even three years can be a very long time in the world of club football. That being said though, Watford will no doubt gather confidence from these relatively recent wins.

Fulham vs Watford Prediction: Watford Keep Winning

When we consider why Fulham are slight favourites according to most bookmakers, the only real advantage they have is that it’s arguable they have been more impressive in their performances, despite the results. But the fact is that the results have happened for good reason and as fun as Fulham have been to watch, they have failed to pull the trigger and get the win time and time again. Ultimately, that is what counts.

Watford have been no slouch in the performance department either and they’ve managed to defeat Crystal Palace, Tottenham and Brighton, which are three teams that Fulham failed to beat by a couple of points. Taking all this into account, Watford look like they should be able to take the win.

The away side have impressed and still managed to walk away with the victory more often than not. For their ability to turn the performance into points, our Fulham vs Watford prediction is that Watford gets another Premier League win.
