Watford vs Southampton is the lone Premier League betting option for Tuesday and although both teams are near the bottom of the EPL table, oddsmakers are expecting a competitive match. Watford are installed as slim +150 favorites against Southampton, who are +187 underdogs.

Southampton isn't exactly playing well this season, sitting 14th in the standings, but 16th-place Watford are just one point above the relegation zone. Both teams are fresh off losses on Thursday, with Watford falling 1-0 to Burnley and Southampton being defeated 2-0 by Arsenal.

Here are our best Premier League predictions and soccer betting picks for Watford vs Southampton on Sunday, June 28, with kickoff set for 11:30 a.m. ET.

Watford (+150) vs Southampton (+187, Draw +230) 

Quick Hitter

In their last seven matches at home across all competitions, Watford has scored seven first-half goals. In Southhampton's previous eight contests, they've scored a total of seven goals within the first 45 minutes. We like the chances of one of these sides scoring an early goal.

Pick: Goal before 30:00 (-120)

 

Team/Player Prop

Southampton's Danny Ings has been in terrific form for the Saints this season. The striker is tied for fourth in the EPL with 16 goals and has scored on average once every 136 minutes of field time. Against a Watford club that's conceded an above-average 1.48 goals per match, grab Ings to find the back of the net at plus money.

Pick: Danny Ings anytime goal (+130)

Over/Under Bet

While both of these teams are coming off scoreless losses, they had previously been very profitable for Over bettors. Before Thursday's EPL matches, Watford was 9-4 to the Over in their last 13 matches while Southampton was 5-2 O/U in their previous seven. 

Southampton has actually been solid offensively in road contests, tied for fifth in the EPL with 22 away goals. Given that the Saints have also conceded 54 goals over their entire 2019-2020 campaign (fourth-worst in the EPL) we're leaning towards the Over.

Pick: Over 2.5 goals +100

 

Side Bet

Watford might be near the bottom of the table but they've been very impressive at home. Watford's biggest match in recent memory was a 3-0 shocker over previously-unbeaten Liverpool at the end of February. The Hornets were +640 underdogs for that contest and bettors that pegged them to win by three goals cashed out at an incredible 150/1.

In their last eight matches at Vicarage Road they've gone 4-3-1 winning not just vs. Liverpool but Manchester United and Wolves as well. They also had a draw with fourth place Leicester City as soon as they returned from the COVID-19 shutdown. We're taking the home side to come out on top here.   

Pick: Watford +150
