Watford vs Blackpool: Top Free Betting Tips

After consecutive three away outings, Watford gets back home to play their next game in Championship against Blackpool on Saturday, 14 January. The Hornets lost the previous game in FA Cup while the Seasiders booked their place in the next round of the tournament previously.

Match Result Prediction: Watford to Win

Watford has been struggling in recent league outings but they have an easy task ahead. The Golden Boys have defeated Blackpool in three of the previous four H2H meetings, winning the last two at home consecutively. In opposition, the Seasiders are without a victory in the recent nine previous nine league outings where they lost five of them. Watford has found the winning results in three of the last six home duels and we predict them to repeat the form in this game and grab all three points at the end.

Both Teams to Score Prediction: Yes

Three of the last five H2H of these teams at the home of Watford have featured BTTS pattern and Blackpool scored in four of them. The Hornets have also collected only one clean sheet in the previous four outings. On the offensive aspect, Watford has recorded consistency by scoring in all of the last four meetings with Blackpool. The Seasider have also allowed goals in all of the previous five games. Hence, a BTTS pattern seems the most probable result for this game.

Watford Preview

The Hornets faced another setback in the last game as they conceded a 2-0 defeat in the third round of the FA Cup against Reading previously. But a total of 11 wins and seven draws in the 26 attempts have got them to the fourth position on the table. Joao Pedro and two other players will miss out on this game due to injury issues.

Blackpool Preview

The Seasiders finally enjoyed a victory in the FA Cup in the last game against Nottingham Forest with a 4-1 scoreline. The team has registered only six wins in the season so far and are limited to the twenty-second position in the standings. Grant Ward and Keshi Anderson are the players to miss this game due to medical concerns.
