Middlesbrough secured a draw at West Ham to put an end to a run of three straight defeats and they could easily have left with more if it weren’t for Payet’s solo goal. They’re now without a win in five, while at the Riverside they’ve managed just one point from a possible nine, so to us they look a little short at 2.25.
Watford twice came from behind to share the spoils with Bournemouth at home prior to the international break. In all honesty they didn’t play their best as they still search for consistency under Walter Mazzarri, but if nothing else the entertainment value of the Hornets this season has been high. They’ve not been afraid to take risks under the new gaffer but it does mean they’re open to conceding – they’ve now let in at least two goals in four of their last five matches. As a result all seven their matches have seen at least two goals, while five have had three or more strikes.
Between them, these two have kept just one clean sheet this season and that was Middlesbrough against West Brom who are hardly an attacking force. As a result both teams to score has been a profitable bet when either side is involved and we’re happy to back it again.
