Leeds vs Watford: Top free betting tips
Leeds United return to Elland Road to face Watford in Round 8 of the EFL Championship on Saturday, 23 September. The Whites enter this game after dropping two points against Hull City while the Hornets witnessed a draw against West Bromwich.
Match result prediction: Leeds to win
Leeds United are undefeated in the previous five league outings and registered two victories in that course. On the other hand, Watford have found only one victory in that course, along with two defeats and two draws. Watford have also lost two of their previous three fixtures away from Vicarage Road Stadium. Adding more to this, the last two H2Hs between these teams have finished in favour of the Whites. Therefore, we predict Leeds United to claim all three points in this game.
Both teams to score prediction: Yes
Three of the previous four H2Hs of these two sides at Elland Road have finished with both teams on the scoresheet. Leeds United have found the back of the net in four of the previous five competitive fixtures in front of their home fans. However, the Whites have also conceded goals in four games during the same course. On the other hand, Watford has rattled the net in the last three consecutive fixtures in the EFL Championship. Given these facts, we predict this game to conclude with a BTTS outcome.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Leeds
Leeds United have rattled the net four times in the previous two fixtures against Watford, keeping consecutive clean sheets. The Whites have also scored more than once in two of the previous games at Elland Road. Defensively, Leeds conceded an average of just one goal per game in the aforestated period. Meanwhile, Watford have allowed multiple goals in three of their last five league outings away from Vicarage Road Stadium. Therefore, we are in the position to predict a 2-1 victory for Leeds United in this fixture.
