Blackpool vs Watford: Top Free Betting Tips

Another home game another attempt for Blackpool to find their first victory at Bloomfield Road. Watford are their next rivals who themselves arrive on the back of a defeat. Their last meeting was a 9-goal affair that finished 7-2 in favour of the Hornets.

Watford to Win

Watford has not been consistent in recent games but the upcoming challenge should bring him a little confidence. The Hornets have won all of the last three H2Hs against Blackpool. Moreover, the Seasiders are yet to win a home game from the previous five attempts and lost four of them. Watford earned a much-awaited away victory in the last visit and we see the Premier League-relegated side producing the same result in this game.

Under 2.5 Goals

Three of the last five H2Hs at the home of Blackpool ended with low-scoring totals and the current form of the host hints at the same pattern. The Seasiders have rattled the net only two times in the last five home games. On the other hand, Watford has also scored only six goals in the previous five away outings in the Championship.

Both Teams to Score: No

Blackpool displayed a terrible offensive approach in the recent hosting attempts as they have failed to score in three of the last five meetings at home. But the Pool has been conceding goals in all of them. In opposition, despite not getting a run of wins, Watford has hit the target in four of the previous five games. The Golden Boys also kept two clean sheets in the last three H2Hs against Blackpool. So it is unlikely to see both teams scoring at the same time.

Blackpool

After three consecutive games without earning a point, the Seasiders managed to get only one point in the last game with a 0-0 draw against Sunderland. The team has won only three outings in 12 attempts and stays in the twenty-second position. Keshi Anderso and two other players will miss out on this game due to fitness issues.

Watford

The Golden Boys returned to the winless sequence in the last game with a 1-2 defeat against Swansea. With the help of four wins and five draws in 12 outings, Watford finds themselves in tenth place in the standings. The head coach Slaven Bilic will report three fitness concerns in the team coming into this duel.
