Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Both of these teams have managed to convert a lot of shots to goals in recent matches but have also leaked a lot of goals. Watford are without a clean sheet in their previous six matches while Blackburn Rovers are five matches without a clean sheet. Blackburn has scored ten times in their previous six matches while Watford has scored twelve times in their previous five.

Total goals prediction: Over 3.5 Goals

We are expecting plenty of goals in this match. Watford seems to have very much clicked recently and has scored five goals in one match on two occasions recently, beating Rotherham 5-0 seven games ago before beating Preston 5-1 in their most recent match with Watford scoring at least once in every match in between barring one. Blackburn does currently have the Championships top scorer in Sammie Szmodics who has notched fourteen times thus far. Since a 3-1 win over Norwich, Blackburn have scored fourteen times in eight matches and have conceded fifteen times in that time.

Correct score prediction: 2-2 Draw

We can not separate the two sides, especially with Blackburn having a home advantage. Watford has been in really good form as of late and we can not see them receiving a defeat but we also can not see them managing the beat of Blackburn. This should be an entertaining game with plenty of goals for viewers to see.
