Watford Slight Favourites To Beat Southampton At Home On Sunday

Although Watford are without their fans behind them at Vicarage Road on Sunday night, they are the 7/5 favourites cut slightly from 6/4 to beat Southampton.

The Hornets are winless in their last six home league games against the Saints (D4, L2) since a 3-2 win way back in September 2007, and it could be why BoyleSports are seeing that 39% of their customers are getting behind them despite being the 2/1 outsiders.

Southampton have won a league-high 62% of their points away from home this season and in this exact fixture last season, Shane Long scored the fastest ever goal in Premier League history, finding the net after just 7.69 seconds. The Irish star is 3/1 to find the back of the net anytime and 8/1 to score first.

Southampton striker Danny Ings has been directly involved in ten goals in his last ten away Premier League starts (eight goals, two assists) and is the 6/5 favourite to score anytime.
