Michael Owen predicts West Ham v Watford outcome

West Ham Upton Park

West Ham United and Watford will face each other in the Premier League on Wednesday evening.

Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen has predicted on Betvictor.com that West Ham United will win against Watford at home this week.

West Ham will take on Watford in the Premier League on Wednesday evening, and Owen has backed the Hammers to pick up all three points from the encounter at the Boleyn Ground.

“You couldn’t blame the Hornets for having one eye on Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final with Palace and I expect to see the Irons get back to winning ways having played their part in a pulsating game at the King Power on Sunday; hard to see past a comfortable home win,” the former England international striker wrote on Betvictor.com.

A footnote added: “Michael’s recommendation: West Ham to lead at halftime and full-time at 31/20.”

West Ham’s recent results have not been great, but refereeing decisions have gone against them.

The Hammers’ performances have been encouraging, and they should be able to bag all three points from the match against Watford.

The Hornets are safe from relegation to the Championship and have an FA Cup semi-final tie to look forward to.

It is hard to see Watford win against West Ham, who are still in the hunt for a top-four finish in the Premier League this season.

For Slaven Bilic’s side to maintain their chances of achieving that, they need to collect all three points against the Hornets at the Boleyn Ground on Wednesday evening.
