Watford vs Birmingham: Top free betting tips
Watford will be desperate to end their winning drought in the EFL Championship when they face Birmingham City in the next game. The fixture will be played at Vicarage Road Stadium on Saturday, 16 September. Birmingham City make an appearance in this game after a draw game against Millwall in the second division.
Match result prediction: Watford to win
Birmingham has been quite favourable in the EFL Championship this season with three victories in five rounds. But they are winless in the last two fixtures in the league and EFL Cup. On the other hand, Watford has also gone undefeated in the previous five matches. But the Hornets have recorded two victories and a draw in the recent four league outings at Vicarage Road Stadium. Watford have also thrashed Birmingham City by winning all of the last five home H2Hs. Hence, we back the Hornets to have the upper hand in this game.
Both teams to score prediction: Yes
Birmingham City failed to score a single goal in the last five H2Hs against Watford, away at Vicarage Road Stadium. However, the Blues have secured a scoring string by finding the back of the net in all five games this season. On the other hand, Watford have also conceded goals in four of the recent five games. Offensively, the Hornets have also managed to rattle the net in three of the last five fixtures at Vicarage Road Stadium. Given these statistics, we predict the teams to contribute to a BTTS result in this fixture.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Watford
Birmingham City have been restricted to scoring just one goal in three of the recent five fixtures. On the other hand, Watford has managed to score at least twice in two of the last four games at Vicarage Road Stadium. The Hornets have also notched multiple goals in three of the recent five home H2Hs against the Blues. Birmingham has scored just one goal in the same number of home and away meetings with Watford. Based on these numbers, we predict a 2-1 lead for the Hornets at the end of the ninety minutes in this game.
