Premier League betting tips Saturday 5th February 2022
Burnley v Watford EPL Betting Tips
What a first game in charge of Watford for veteran manager Roy Hodgson following the sadly inevitable sacking of Claudio Ranieri, in this sole Premiership fixture this week in our Premier League betting predictions.
As it is the only top flight match and as it offers three excellent betting opportunities, our Premier League betting tips experts thinks you should bet big on this one.
If Hodgson is looking nervously down the table he will see that today’s opponent’s Burnley are the only team below his, now that even Norwich have twitched into life.
Our Premier League betting predictions and tips were tipping you regularly to bet against Watford, correctly as Ranieri managed just one point from his last possible 24.
Watford were bottom of Eagle’s 10 game Premier League form table and even if the modelling for our Premier League predictions reduced the number of games in the form table, the picture remained the same.
Will “Woy” (he struggles to pronounce his r’s) give Watford a new manager bounce? The newly appointed Ranieri famously beat Man Utd before Watford’s form slumped.
Hodgson has an excellent record with struggling Premier League clubs such as Crystal Palace, and these Premier League betting predictions and tips reckons he probably has as good a chance as anyone of keeping them up. But Watford’s trigger-happy owners don’t seem to understand that perhaps it’s not the manager that is the fundamental problem.
Frustrated though Burnley will be that they did not face Ranieri, they do have at least two games in hand over rivals. However, at this end of the table points rather than games are what you want. An unlikely victory for Watford would cast Burnley five points adrift at the bottom and any Premier League betting tips would suggest that would be hard to come back from.
The sale of solid but uninspiring Chris Woods to Newcastle looked like a dangerous move for Burnley, the £25m transfer fee likely to cushion the blow of relegation. But Sean Dyche pulled off a masterstroke in buying as a replacement (at half the price) a striker well known to Bundesliga fans – Wout Weghorst from Wolfsburg, a player EagleBet with its Bundesliga expertise has long admired. Weghorst’s xG is 0.5 compared to 0.3 for Woods, albeit in the Bundesliga rather than the Premiership.
He could, these Premier League betting predictions and tips reckon, make a real impact.
Burnley will also have Maxwell Cornet available – another striker who really excites us – after AFCON and who these EPL betting predictions and tips have already correctly tipped this season as anytime goalscorer.
As such our Premier League predictions today hold that Burnley – who have struggled for goals – could find joy against Watford’s leaky defence (20 goals against in their last eight).
Given that Burnley’s problem has been scoring – their defence has been excellent, conceding just eight goals at home all season – these EPL 2022 betting predictions fancy the Clarets in this one.
At home Burnley’s xG has been good – they have created more chances than their opponents in all but two matches. Their problem has been conversion, and with Weghorst and Cornet both potentially involved, these betting tips see Burnley scoring.
Against high-flying Arsenal last time out at home they secured a 0-0 draw, suggesting Watford will find Burnley hard to break down.
These Premier League betting tips contend that Burnley are not only clear favourites but that they have been under-priced by bookies. The one caveat we always make when writing such Premiership betting predictions is that Watford could well see a new manager bounce, particularly with Hodgson’s record.

Our Premier League betting tips suggest this is a great value bet on Burnley. These Premier League betting predictions and tips will also take a smaller bet on 1-0 to Burnley at huge odds of anything like 8.4. Bundesliga fans might also want to bet on Weghorst – he is 5.5 for anytime goalscorer but a bet on him each way against Watford’s defence is good value.
This EPL match is easy for anyone that writes English Premier League Betting Tips.
