Watford vs Middlesbrough: Top Free Betting Tips

We travel to Vicarage Road for the final midweek encounter of Round 7. Watford were stung by an exciting QPR in a five-goal thriller while Middlesbrough arrive after earning an impressive 2-1 victory over Swansea.

Watford to Win

Form is neither in favour of Watford nor Middlesbrough. The Hornets have been left wondering by their lapses in concentration at the back while Boro are yet to claim a victory on the road. Watford are unbeaten in the last nine duels and with home advantage on their side should be able to do enough to get over the line.

Over 2.5 Goals

The Hornets are getting out of their shell, hitting the back of the net. As the season gets going, their confidence is only going to improve. Boro, on the other hand, has found scoring easy but has been let down by their defence. The visitors have scored 9 goals and conceded 10. Four of Boro's six competitive outings have finished with Over 2.5 Goals and we expect more of the same in this meeting.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

There are question marks about Watford's scoring prowess. However, they will feel confident against Middlesbrough, who have conceded two goals on average this season. Boro's attack cannot be underestimated as they have impressed with nine strikes to their name.

Watford vs Middlesbrough: Team News and Match Preview

Watford

Getting back to form after relegation is tough and this is the cycle Watford are going through. They have impressed with competitive outings and will feel confident against Middlesbrough, against whom they are unbeaten in nine encounters. However, they are besieged by injuries with six first-team regulars out of action and it can hamper their early season aspirations.

Middlesbrough

Orders from Steve Gibson are simple and straight, improve on league standing and get Middlesbrough back to the Premier League. Chris Wilder brought them close to the playoffs but Boro fell short as they finished 7th. They have picked up where they left off but not in a positive fashion. While they score goals with ease, keeping their rivals off has been a tougher assignment.
