The Hammers have a habit of being on top at the break and Phil Kitromilides can see the run continuing when they host the Hornets. There's a £50 risk free bet from SportingbetAfter an impressive victory at Cardiff on Sunday, West Ham will be looking to continue their
push for automatic promotion by taking another three points against Watford at Upton Park
But the Hornets themselves enjoyed an eye catching win at the weekend, coming from two goals down to beat Burnley 3-2. They are priced at 11/2 (6.50) for another win with Sportingbet.
On the road though, Watford have been far from impressive with just one win from their last six games and against a Hammers side unbeaten in their last six matches at Upton Park, it looks as if the visitors could struggle, a draw is priced at 11/4 with Sportingbet.
The 11/20 (1.55) offered on a home win by Sportingbet is probably just too short but the price of evens (2.00) for them to be winning at half time, is well worth consideration and looks to be somewhat overpriced.
The Hammers have won the first half in six out of their last eight matches in the Championship, while Watford have been losing at the break in each of their previous three games.
The stats back up what looks to be a solid bet with West Ham strong at home, where they have only lost three times all season and Watford uninspiring on their travels losing on seven occasions.
Meantime if you are looking for a bet offering slightly higher odds, then a small bet on five or more goals scored in the game could provide some value.
Watford have been involved in some high scoring matches recently with 17 strikes in their last four games, and two of those saw five goals or more.
The odds of 5/1 (6.00) are big enough to entice a value bet and could bring a healthy profit.
