Watford Preview – Easy three points for the in-form Hornets?

Watford have really kicked on since Xisco Munoz arrived on the scene in Hertfordshire. The Hornets look a good bet to be promoted alongside Norwich City, who lead the way at the top. So far, Watford have taken an impressive 72 points from 37 league fixtures.

The Hertfordshire club have been in stunning form of late. Since a little slump a couple of months ago when they took just two points from a possible seven, the Hornets have hardly put a foot wrong. Munoz’s men go into this home fixture having won eight of their last nine in the Championship.

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

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1210 GMT, Friday 19 March)

Watford have the best home record in England’s second tier, winning an impressive 14 of 18 league games at Vicarage Road, dropping just ten points along the way. Can they secure another priceless three points on their own patch this Saturday?

Birmingham City Preview – Another heavy defeat for the Blues?

Despite a much-needed win in midweek in Lee Bowyer’s first match in charge, Birmingham City are still in trouble. They hover just above the drop zone, six clear of 22nd-place Rotherham United, who have games in hand on the teams above them. Overall, it has been a pretty miserable season for the Midlands outfit.

Birmingham have fared much better away from home than they have at St Andrew’s Trillion Trophy Stadium this season. On home turf, the Blues have picked up a mere 15 points, which is the fewest in the division. Away from home, though, Birmingham have won five, collecting 23 points in the process.

Despite their respectable away form, Birmingham have picked up just one win on the road in six, winning 1-0 at fellow strugglers Sheffield Wednesday on 20th February. With time running out, City could do with a positive result from this one.


Watford vs Birmingham City Betting Advice

Watford have not been the best travellers this season, but they did pick up a 1-0 win when these two locked horns at St Andrew’s Trillion Trophy Stadium at the end of 2020. It was a close game, with a late penalty settling it in Watford’s favour. Like so often, Troy Deeney was the Hornets’ hero.


Key Facts – Watford vs Birmingham City Betting Tip

  • Watford have the best home record in the league
  • 23 of Birmingham’s 38 points have come away from home

Watford, who won 4-1 at Rotherham in midweek, are flying right now. Munoz has made an instant impact at Vicarage Road, and the Spanish boss should inspire the Hornets to another easy home win on Saturday.

Watford kept a clean sheet in the reverse game at St Andrew’s, and we fancy the high-flyers to stop the Blues from scoring in this one. Check out the solid odds of 13/10 for the hosts to win to nil. We also like the look of Watford to win both halves at 3/1.
