Betting tips and match preview | Barclays Premier League

Watford welcome Sunderland to Vicarage Road in the final game of the season for both sides, with Watford desperately looking to end their season on a winning note while Sunderland secured their safety with an excellent win over Everton on Wednesday.

The Hornets come into this fixture on the back of a 4-2 defeat away against Norwich last weekend and that result has cost Enrique Sanchez Flores his job with the club opting against renewing the highly popular Spaniard’s contract for a further season.

Considering the club’s mandate at the start of the season was to remain in the Premier League and considering how comfortably they have done it on such limited resources it is a surprise they haven’t retained his services. He will be a man in demand, particularly at a club with more resources.

They will be looking to end the season on a high and with a few more summer signings they will look to progress, albeit with a different manager at the helm. It was the poor record in 2016 that has cost Flores his job and they will be looking to add to their 12 wins in their final game under the spaniard.

Watford will be looking for their 13th win in 38 matches this season and their 7th win at home.


Job Done For Sunderland 

Sunderland come into this match on the back of a 3-0 win against Everton in midweek in a result that cost Roberto Martinez his job and kept Sunderland in the Premier League. Hard to remember a game that had such wide ranging consequences.

Their form in the last six has been excellent, they are unbeaten in five matches and to produce those kind of results when the going gets tough is an incredible achievement but the side are used to performing great escapes, having managed it the last two seasons.

This has been another poor season for Sunderland in the Premier League, they have won 9 matches this season and they have spent an incredible 237 days in the relegation zone and they will need to avoid another season like this next year.

In securing their Premier League status they were able to send rivals Newcastle down in what was sure to have been a very sweet feeling for fans on Weirside. They will be keen to give Sam Allardyce more funding during the summer and ensure that they do not spend a fourth consecutive season battling relegation.

They will be looking for their 10th win in 38 games this season and are looking to secure their 4th away win of the campaign.


Watford head into this fixture with a record of two wins, three defeats and one draw in their last six matches. Sunderland have a record of three wins, two draws and one defeat in their last six matches.

Both teams are 8/13 on to score. The first goalscorer odds for Watford are Troy Deeney and Odion Ighalo at 5/1 with Nordin Amrabat at 15/2. For Sunderland Jermain Defoe is at 7/2 with Dame Ndoye at 6/1.

The last time that these two sides met at the Vicarage Road Sunderland won 3-2 and the odds of the same result are 33/1.
