Swansea beat Watford in the EFL Cup third round is Bet of the Day for 24/09/19

The Swans have won three of their last five visits to Vicarage Road, so given current form Swansea beat Watford odds in the EFL Cup look worth a wager on Tuesday.

There was a sense of poetic justice in the Hornets getting battered by Manchester City over the weekend.

Changing coaches doesn’t solve their problems and it’s high time those trigger-happy Watford owners realised that.

If they play like they did at the Etihad, then the Hornets are a cup upset waiting to happen. City exposed an already leaky defence in ruthless fashion.

Watford haven’t been much better on their own turf either, conceding eight goals in four home games across all competitions.

They are three points from safety and bottom of the Premier League with a worrying goal difference.

Swansea City, meanwhile, are joint top of the Championship, so just two places separate them and their hosts in the football pyramid.

Why Swansea beat Watford odds appeal

As the Swans are unbeaten away from home and have kept four clean sheets in their last five, they are in much better shape.

Considering that, best Swansea beat Watford odds of 11/2 with BetVictor look overpriced and massive value.

Steve Cooper has made a cracking start to his time at the Liberty Stadium. The Swans are one of a number of surprise packages early on in the Championship season.

The hosting Hornets in contrast are far too short with bookmakers on current form here. Quique Sanchez Flores can expect a response, but his side remain vulnerable.

Since returning to Vicarage Road, he has seen his side concede 10 goals in two games. Watford look there for the taking defensively, then.

With no sign of tightening things up, the Swans could sting the Hornets on their own patch. That is a tempting punt based on how both sides come into this cup tie.

Bet of the Day: 11/2 with BetVictor, Swansea beat Watford in 90 minutes in the EFL Cup third round.
