Watford and Nottingham Forest meet in the EFL Championship this Saturday afternoon at Vicarage Road. The Hornets have been flying and have the best home record in the league. Forest fell to a rare home defeat last time out, so Chris Hughton will be looking for a response from his players this weekend. As expected, though, Xisco Munoz’s men are the clear favourites. We have the latest betting odds and tips.

Watford Preview – Another three points at home for the Hornets?

Xisco Munoz has done a fine job at Vicarage Road since taking over in December. Watford have been in excellent form of late, picking up an impressive five wins from six Championship matches. In midweek, the Hornets cruised to a 2-0 home triumph over bottom side Wycombe Wanderers.

Watford have the best home record in the Championship at present. The Hertfordshire outfit have been formidable on their own patch all season, taking 41 points from 17 home games. Watford have won 13, drawn two and lost two so far.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 0729 GMT, Friday 5 March)

After the midweek results, Watford moved level on points with second-place Brentford. A positive result against Nottingham Forest will take them into the automatic places before the Bees take on Rotherham United shortly after.

Nottingham Forest Preview – Reds to crash to back-to-back defeats?

Chris Highton’s Nottingham Forest fell to disappointing 1-0 loss to Luton Town on Tuesday night. However, that was the Reds’ first home defeat since 20th January and only a second reverse at the City Ground since December.

Forest lost six of seven from late November to mid-December, but Hughton’s boys have been a tough nut to crack since then. The Reds have lost just three of their last 16 Championship matches.

Watford vs Nottingham Forest Betting Advice

It was a pretty drab affair when these two met at the City Ground back in December. The game finished in a goalless draw, with neither team doing enough to win it. Forest have struggled against the Hornets in recent years, winning just one of the last nine league and cup meetings.


Key Facts – Watford vs Nottingham Forest Betting Tip

  • Watford are the best home team in the Championship
  • Forest have lost just three of their last 16 league games
  • The reverse fixture at the City Ground ended in a goalless draw


Watford are flying under Munoz, and the Hornets will fancy their chances of chalking up another three points at the weekend. Forest have netted in nine of their last ten away games in all competitions, so take a punt on the Watford win and both teams to score at 4/1.

Andre Gray has had to wait patiently for first-team opportunities this term. Gray was given a rare start on Wednesday, and the 29-year-old repaid his boss by bagging a brace in the 2-0 win over Wycombe. Prior to that, Gray had netted just one Championship goal this season. Back the Watford striker to score anytime in this one at 15/8.
