AFC Wimbledon vs Watford betting tips and predictions for this club friendly taking place on Saturday 15th July with the best odds for each football tip selected. Read on four our tipsters' advice and tips on this clash.
Watford visit the Cherry Red Records Stadium to face AFC Wimbledon in the so called ‘Football Manager Cup’ with Marco Silva testing out his Hornets squad ahead of their Premier League campaign. Neal Ardley faces one of his former clubs as his side test their mettle ahead of their opening fixture with Scunthorpe on August 5th.
AFC Wimbledon have been working hard on the training field ahead of this fixture and it will be a real test of their credentials. These two sides met in this pre-season competition back in 2015 and played out an entertaining 2-2 draw.
Ardley cannot call upon the injured Tom Soares and the perennially crocked Jon Meades ahead of this game. Wimbledon finished 15th in League One last season and are hoping to improve on that position this year. George Long could play at least 45 minutes for his new club and Cody McDonald should also feature.
This will be Watford’s second friendly under new coach Marco Silva having drawn 1-1 with National League side Woking earlier in the month. Silva’s side is starting to take shape with the recent addition of Nathaniel Chalobah although it is highly unlikely the former Chelsea midfielder will feature in West London. These two could play out another entertaining affair so we're going with goals in our AFC Wimbledon vs Watford betting tips. We're going to back both Over 2.5 Goals at 3/4 with Bet365 and Over 3.5 Goals at 15/8 with William Hill.
As tempted as I am to suggest that the same scoreline may occur once more, take a slightly different angle of a Hornets win but both sides to find the net. A 3-1 win for the Premier League looks a decent play here, and we're backing that in our final Wimbledon vs Watford betting tip at 12/1 with Bet365.
Over 2.5 Goals – 7/10 with Bet365
Over 3.5 Goals – 7/4 with William Hill
