Watford Preview – Can Bilic make it two wins in two?

Rob Edwards was sacked as Watford boss after making a slow start. The board went for experience with their next appointment, with former West Ham United & West Bromwich Albion boss Slaven Bilic taking over at Vicarage Road.

Bilic’s reign got off the best possible start on Sunday, as Watford hammered Stoke at the bet365 Stadium. The Hornets ran riot in the Potteries, with Ismaila Sarr, Ken Sema, Keinan Davis and Vakoun Issouf Bayo netting in the 4-0 romp.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1228 GMT, Tuesday 4 October)

The emphatic victory at Stoke has lifted Watford into seventh ahead of this round of fixtures. If results go their way, the Hertfordshire club could be back in the play-off spots going into this weekend’s trip to Blackpool. As expected, Bilic’s boys are the big favourites with the bookies.

Swansea City Preview – Can the Swans make it three wins on the spin?

Swansea City are one of the most unpredictable teams in the Championship these days. The Swans are capable of beating anyone on their day, but they have already been beaten four times. They are in 11th with 15 points to their name.

Russell Martin’s men have been in good form lately, winning three of the last four. After a 1-0 home loss to high flyers Sheffield United, the Swans have responded with back-to-back wins over Hull City and West Brom.

Watford vs Swansea City Betting Advice

On their way to promotion to the Premier League in the 2020-21 season, Watford beat Swansea 2-0 at Vicarage Road in May 2021. However, the Swans edged the reverse fixture in South Wales.

Things have been pretty even between these two in recent years in terms of wins, but there has not been a draw in this fixture in six.


Key Facts – Watford vs Swansea City Betting Tip

  • Bilic got off to a winning start at the weekend
  • Swansea have won three of their last four
  • These two are separated by just two points


Watford have been tough to beat at home this season, with just Queens Park Rangers leaving Vicarage Road with all three points. Swansea are fine form, but we can see Bilic making it six points out of six.

There is good value in bet365’s 3/1 for the Watford win and both teams to score. We also fancy the home side to be winning at half time and full time.
