Fragile defences point to goals at Watford

Southampton winless in nine

Two fragile defences short on confidence lock horns at Vicarage Road and punters can take advantage by backing a flurry of goals.

Watford have won just one of their last nine league outings while sloppy Southampton are winless in nine and neither should be trusted to get the job done.

Watford's last five home league games have seen the net bulge at both ends and a visit from Mauricio Pellegrino's men, who have shipped 12 times in their last six road trips, should bring more goals.
