Xisco Munoz’s Watford will be hoping to move a step closer to the Premier League with three points against Luton Town at Kenilworth Road this Saturday. The Hornets, who dropped out of the top tier just last term, are currently riding high in second place in the EFL Championship table. The Hatters will be no pushovers on their own patch, but Watford are the big favourites. Take a look at the best odds and tips.

Luton Town Preview – Can the Hatters upset the high flyers?

Luton Town were many people’s tip for relegation before a ball was kicked this term. However, Nathan Jones has done an excellent job at Kenilworth Road since re-joining last year, and the Hatters have been nowhere near the bottom three this season.

After defeats to Derby County and Barnsley, Luton returned to winning ways in impressive fashion last weekend. They were a goal down at Wycombe Wanderers with ten minutes to play, but late efforts from George Moncur, Kazenga Lua Lua and Elijah Adebayo turned the game around in dramatic style.

Our betting prediction:
Watford to be winning at half time & full time

Luton have struggled for wins at Kenilworth Road in 2021, seeing off just Sheffield Wednesday and Coventry City in league action. Nevertheless, only Queens Park Rangers, Cardiff City, Swansea City and Barnsley have won on their patch since October.

Watford Preview – Hornets to march on with another three points?

Xisco Munoz has done an exceptional job in the harsh manager’s hotseat at Vicarage Road since his arrival in December. Overall, the Spaniard has guided Watford to 15 wins from 21 Championship matches.

Watford have dropped just two points since a 1-0 loss at Bournemouth back on 27th February. The Hertfordshire club claimed consecutive wins over Wycombe, Nottingham Forest, Cardiff, Rotherham United, Birmingham City and Sheffield Wednesday before a 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough on Easter Monday. They returned to winning ways with a 2-0 home victory over Reading last Friday.

Watford have fared far better at home than they have on the road this season, but Munoz’s men have won four of their last six away matches. Can they leave Bedfordshire this Saturday with a massive three points in the bag?

When the pair locked horns at Vicarage Road back in September, it was the first meeting between the clubs since 2006. Luton more than played their part, but Joao Pedro’s goal after 35 minutes proved to be the difference between the two.
