Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Watford vs Middlesbrough


Watford made a powerful return to the elite championship last year, but in the end the team could not cling to a place in the cohort of the best and quickly left the tournament. After their failures in cup games, the Hornets became the second club to be relegated from the Premier League.

In the new season, the team was headed by Rob Edwards, with whom the Golden Boys opened the tournament with a victory over Sheffield United (1:0), after which they drew three times and defeated Burnley (1:0). The line of attack played very poorly, which differed only six times. Clevery, Dele-Bashira, Kalu and Luza will not be able to play today.


Last season, Middlesbrough were pleased in the FA Cup, where the team had a successful start and knocked out Manchester United, but fell short in the quarter-final duel with Chelsea. The start of the new championship brought two defeats and two draws.

Only in the last game, Chris Wilder's wards won their first victory in a duel with Swansea (2:1), which eventually led the team to 18th place. It is impossible not to mention nine goals scored, while the "smog" missed even more. Akpom and Fischer will not be able to play today.

Game Totals Prediction

In this duel, an equal game awaits us, which will bring maximum concentration in defense - both teams create chances not without difficulty, while only one misfire can decide the outcome of the match. In addition, in the last five head-to-head matches, more than two goals were not scored, which we do not rule out today.

Our forecast is the total under 2.5 goals and we bet on this through the Mostbet line with a coefficient of 1.76.

We assume that in this fight we are waiting for a three-way game. Both clubs started unstable, while the emotional state of the teams is far from the best. We assume that today it is worth paying attention to the draw option, which would suit both clubs.

Second bet - draw for 3.30.
