Swansea vs. Watford Game Preview
This week's Monday night Premier League football is between Swansea and Watford and this one might not look the most entertaining matches of the weekend, but it does offer one of the best bets of it. Why on earth on Swansea rated the 2.60 favorites with Betfred soccer odds board for this one is anybody's guess, and why they are being backed by soccer punters is even more alarming.

It's been a week to forget for the Swans and new manager Alan Curtis, last weekend they were dumped out of the FA Cup by League Two side Oxford, and then in midweek they were thumped 4-2 by lowly Sunderland, and they look a side to avoid at all costs at present and for the remainder of the season. The home side have been struggling for goals all campaign, and only twice in the Premier League have they scored in the first half of any game, so what do you do when you are at the foot of the table and struggling for goals?

Well, the one thing you don't do is sell one of your best players and goal threats to another struggling side, and that is exactly what they've done in allowing Jonjo Shelvey to join Newcastle last week. Not only do I believe that the prospects look gloomy for them on Monday night, but I also strongly believe that they will be playing in the Championship next season, unless they can turn things around very, very quickly and the 2.75 with BetVictor on them to be relegated at the end of the season looks a cracking soccer pick.

Watford have been a revelation in the Premier League, and were the bookies favorites for the drop at the start of the campaign, yet, they've made them look silly, and I think they will again with a win on Monday. They are sitting in a lofty 10th in the table (seven places higher than their opponents) and despite losing 2-0 in midweek at Southampton, in what was their worst performance of a very impressive season so far, they look massively overpriced at the 3.40 with Bet365 to bounce back with all three points in this one.

The visitors won at Vicarage Road 1-0 in the reverse fixture and they will fear nothing in this trip where they are unbeaten in their last three at the Liberty Stadium and they look a great bet to do the business yet again.

 

Betting Analysis
The one thing I don't expect in this one is many goals as in the all those recent trips and the match this season under 2.5 goals has been a winner in every single one and that might prove popular again, but the 1.60 with BetVictor looks too short for me.

The home side are seriously lacking a goal threat as the goals from top goalscorer Bafétimbi Gomis have dried up, but the same can't be said for the visitors who boast the one of the most prolific strike-forces in the Premier League in Troy Deeney and Odion Igahlo with 19 goals between them which is 76 per cent of Watford's total Premier League goals.

Deeney and Igahlo will prove the difference and the Hornet's play better away from home with their speed and strength on the counter attack and the advice is simple: just back the visitors for the win at the huge 2.60.
