Pep Guardiola’s City side are the form team in the top flight having taken a maximum 12 points from their last four Premier League games, firing home nine goals in the process. 

City are 12/1 to keep their fine run going, while the hosts are a huge 14/1 to do the Manchester double at Vicarage Road.  

The visitors have been held to a draw just twice so far this season, but it is 13/2 for the Hornets to pinch a point in Watford v Manchester City betting tips.  

City have scored at least two in their last six and it is 1/4 for that trend to continue, while a win for Guardiola’s men with over 2.5 goals in the match is 3/5.  

Watford v Manchester City head-to-head 

City arrive on a 13-game winning run over the hosts, with Watford last claiming a victory over the blue side of Manchester back in 1987.  

Recent history also doesn’t read too kindly for Watford supporters with City hitting 18 unanswered goals against the Hornets in their last three meetings.

Watford v Manchester City key battles 

Although results have been mixed since Claudio Ranieri has taken over in the Watford dugout, there has been no doubt the games have been entertaining.  

However, the relegation-threatened Londoners really need to improve at the back if they want to escape danger and it is hard to see how they keep title-chasing City quiet here.  

Both teams have found the net in both Watford and Manchester City’s last three fixtures and it is 23/20 for that trend to continue here.

City look the most likely winner and that can be added to both teams to score for a 15/8 chance in Watford v Manchester City betting tips. 

Bernardo Silva scored for the third time in his last four Premier League appearances on Wednesday night and it would be no surprise to see him figure again here for City.  

The Portugal international is 5/1 to break the deadlock and 13/8 to find the net at anytime.
