Match Preview & Team News
The Hornets are entering this duel from 4th place and 33 points, just three behind table leaders Norwich City. They have achieved three victories in the last five divisional appearances, losing only to Cardiff City at home. Despite that, bookies are still slightly favouring hosts here at 8/5 rate. Brentford FC have been on fire lately with four wins and two draws in last six fixtures. Read on our Championship betting tips and predictions below.
Current Form And Home & Away Performances
Watford’s head manager Vladimir Ivic received Coach of the Month prize a couple of days ago. Even though he is inexperienced when it comes to English football, his squad is doing just fine in the Championship campaign. He was the one to “discover” 19 years old striker from Brazil Joao Pedro. Youngster already found the net fifteen times, delivering much more than Ismaila Sarr, Watford’s most expensive player. Hornets scored 18 goals in nine appearances at this stadium so far, while conceding eight. Stats are quite impressive with seven wins, one draw and one loss.
As for the opposition, Brentford are one of the toughest visitors in the league. The Bees secured five victories in nine away days, while losing only two encounters. The average number of goals scored in those duels is 2.33 per match. League’s best goalscorer Ivan Toney has bagged 15 goals so far, and directly brought a lot of points.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
14 out of Watford’s 18 games so far ended with two goals total or less. Derby games are usually very tight so we are not expecting a lot of action at Vicarage, at least not in the first half. Under 2.5 goals is going to be the primary selection at 3/5.
Vladimir Ivic’s team has been super-dominant at this stadium and in our honest opinion, they have slightly better squad than Brentford. Home win draw no bet option is the safest approach to full-time winner market and should be backed with higher stake. The odds are 4/5.
