Watford vs Middlesbrough Prediction & Betting Tips
Watford vs Middlesbrough betting tips and prediction for the Friday night Championship fixture on Friday 12th September at the Vicarage Road. Kick-off is 7.45pm and the match is live on Sky Sports.
Watford had a messy end to last season’s Premier League campaign, both off and on the pitch, resulting in relegation to the Championship. They had no less than four managers last season in a chaotic campaign.
They kick-off the new season at home to a Middlesbrough side who also had a terrible season but they did narrowly avoid relegation with Neil Warnock keeping them in the league. Warnock has a good record in the Championship and with a full summer under his belt, Boro could be dark horses this season.
Watford vs Middlesbrough Prediction
Things aren’t set to get any easier for Watford’s fans. Even though they’ve only lost Abdoulaye Doucoure and Jose Holebas from last season’s starting 11, there could be more players to leave and if Troy Deeney moves on, Watford will really struggle in this league.
There are around eight Watford players unavailable for this game so new manager Vladimir Ivic is facing an uphill task before a ball is kicked.
From a betting point of view, there is no interest in backing Watford at odds to Evens to win this match. They are down to the bare bones of their squad and Neil Warnock is a master in these types of games.
Even though Middlesbrough are hardly a banker in this game, Watford are missing Ismaila Sarr, Gerard Deulofeu, Troy Deeney, Andre Gray, Will Hughes, Etienne Capoue, Roberto Pereyra and Danny Welbeck from their squad. That makes a bet on Middlesbrough to draw or win appeal at 4/5 with Mr Play.
The new Watford manager will have Glen Murray in his squad for this game and he might be a wise anytime goalscorer tip. Goals look likely in this match, especially if it is anything like Middlesbrough’s 4-3 League Cup victory over Shrewsbury Town last weekend. They’ve also beaten a reserve Newcastle side 5-1 in pre-season.
Over 2.5 goals is priced at 11/10 with Mr Play.
