Best Watford Betting Sites

Watford’s trophy case may not be as full as other Premier League clubs, but the franchise still boasts a rich history in English football. Formed in 1881 as Watford Rovers, the club played in the FA Cup for the first time in 1886, followed by the Southern League a decade later. Watford joined the Football League in 1920, and it was there that manager Graham Taylor’s tenure saw the club reach new heights. Under Taylor between 1977 and 1987, Watford rose from the lowly Fourth Division to England’s top league, where they finished second during the 1982-83 season. [+]

The club also competed in the EUFA Cup in 1983-84 and reached the FA Cup final the same year. After Taylor’s departure, the team saw a decade of decline from 1987 to 1997 before the manager returned on a full-time basis.

After eight seasons outside of the Premier League, Watford returned to the top division in 2015-16, earning the promotion following a second-place finish in the Championship.

Former striker Luther Blissett, who played for Watford from 1976 to 1992, is the franchise’s all-time scoring leader with 186 career goals — 148 of which came in league play. Blissett is also the club leader in all-time appearances with 503 matches.

Cliff Holton still holds the record for most goals in a single season with 42 tallies during the 1959-60 campaign.

How To Win At Watford Betting

Few expected Watford to avoid relegation following the 2015-16 season. Instead, The Hornets silenced many of their critics by finishing 13th overall with a record of 12 victories, nine draws and 17 defeats.

Bovada, for the 2016-17 season, had a +200 line that Watford would be demoted to the Championship and +550 to finish last in the Premier League standings.

Watford, however, once again proved their naysayers wrong. But the final stages of the season alsmost got too close for comfort, with the Hornets finishing one spot above the relegation zone. 

Watford started the 2016-17 season well and had nothing to worry about until faltering at the finish line. They were never really drawn into the relegation battle, but teeterd on the brink for a while. 

Watford finished the season with 40 points, six above the relegation spots. Forty points is the magic number in the Premier League, usually all but guranteeing Premier League retention. They are a solid home unit, taking 28 of their 40 points at Vicarage Road. They had the 12th best home record. Goals for and against weren’t really a concern for the Hornets at home, as they finished about mid-table in both analytical categories. 

Like most teams neare the bottom of the table, Watford did not enjoy going on the road. They amassed 12 points in 19 away encounters, making their road record the sixth worst in the league. 

Former Hull manager Marco Silva has recently taken the reigns at Watford, which should work out well for this team. Still somewhat untested in the Premeir League, Silva has his work cut out. The first half of the season will be crucial in Watford’s survival hopes in the coming season. They should have enough to stay in the Premier League team but this is one team you should keep a close eye on. Throwing a few dollars on them being relegated could prove profitable.
