An already relegated Watford host Everton tonight at Vicarage Road. Veteran manager Roy Hodgson was unable to save the Hornets from the drop and they’ll be looking to bounce back to the top flight next season. They have already appointed the League Two Manager of the Season Rob Edwards as the next man in charge. Dealing with injuries to several members of the first eleven, it's likely Hodgson puts out a youthful looking side to give them a taste of the Premier League before next season’s campaign in the Championship.
With a win today Everton would move to 38 points with three games remaining. If Leeds fail to get anything from their match with Chelsea today, the gap would be 4 points between the Toffees and their two relegation rivals. A win wouldn’t quite secure their Premier League status, but having an extra game in hand over Burnley and Leeds it’s fully in their hands.
I expect Everton to win this match but I don’t like paying the -165 juice. Parlaying the Everton moneyline and under 3.5 goals gives you +104 odds and I like that a lot better! Looking back through Everton and Watford’s last 7 fixtures, under 3.5 has cashed 12/14 times. If you’re interested in a goal scorer, I do like Richarlison to find the back of the net against his former club.
