Watford vs Stoke City top free betting tips

Stoke City managed to pick up their first win in nine matches which gave Steve Schumacher his first win in charge of the Potters against Birmingham City. Stoke had drawn their previous three matches before that victory and have improved since Schumacher joined the club. Watford lost their previous match by four goals to one but did win the two before that, including a 5-1 victory over Preston North End.

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Both teams have found the back of the net in all of Watford's previous seven matches and all but two of Stoke's previous seven. Both teams have failed to score in the previous three head-to-head meetings but that is a run we can see ending in this match. Watford are very hit-and-miss while Stoke have seemingly turned a corner, Watford having a home advantage will ensure that Stoke does not walk all over them but we can see both teams celebrating a goal.

Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

In Stoke City's previous five matches, just one of them has seen more than 2.5 goals scored with that stat also lining up with the recent head-to-head meetings with the previous two fixtures failing to score more than 2.5 goals. Watford in recent weeks has shown how good they can be in attack but have also shown how poor they can be defensively. Stoke will test the Hornets but we can see it being a close game.

Correct score prediction: 1-1 Draw

We predict Stoke to make it five matches unbeaten with four of those five being a draw, three of which would be a 1-1 draw should this be the way this game ends. Watford has drawn four home matches this season while Stoke City have drawn three of their away game. Since Schumacher's appointment, Stoke has been a very difficult side to break down and that is how we see this going. Watford will struggle to break down a stubborn Potters defence.
