Watford vs Sheff Wed: top free betting tips

Watford will be determined to end their winless form against last-positioned Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday, 21 October. The Owls come into this game in search of their first victory of the season, ending the last one in a draw against Huddersfield.

Match result prediction: Watford to win

Watford and Sheffield United have been quite the same recently with three defeats and two draws in their last five league outings. But the Hornets will be optimistic about the home advantage. Watford have registered one victory, one defeat and a draw in their last three games at Vicarage Road Stadium. Meanwhile, Sheffield Wednesday have conceded four defeats in their last five road fixtures. Furthermore, the Hornets have gone undefeated in their last five H2Hs against Sheffield and won three of them. Therefore, we back Watford to claim three points in this game.

Both teams to score prediction: No

Watford have netted the ball in each of their last three games at Vicarage Road Stadium. On the other hand, Sheffield Wednesday have failed to score a single goal in any of their previous four matches. The Owls have remained goalless in three of their last four H2H meetings with Watford. Adding more, the Hornets have claimed two clean sheets in their previous five games in front of the home fans. Given these numbers, we predict only Watford to be able to score in this game.

Correct score prediction: 2-0 to Watford

Despite lacking a winning run, Watford have netted the ball twice in each of their last three games in Vicarage Road Stadium. The Hornets have also scored multiple goals in two of their previous five home H2Hs against Sheffield Wednesday. On the other hand, the Owls have allowed more than one goal to be scored in three of their previous five fixtures away from Hillsborough Stadium. In light of the given scenario, we believe we to see a 2-0 lead for Watford in this encounter.
