Watford vs Sheffield Utd: Top Free Betting Tips

Watford and Sheffield have not played against each other in years and now meet as two of the most expensive sides in the Championship. Here are our predictions.

Total Goals – Under 2.5

We have two of the main contenders for the new season in the Championship and we expect both sides to want to start with a positive result. We expect a low-scoring game with a lot of defensive efforts and less action than expected. Especially when it comes to Watford, the team has to make it up to its fans for the relegation from the Premier League. Watford and Sheffield Utd played twice in 2019 for the last time and both games were under 2.5 goals.

Match Result – Draw

As mentioned above, we expect to see both times try to win their opening game and we think that we have two teams that are absolutely equal in strength. Sheffield were and remain one of the top teams in the Championship while Watford had a disastrous season in the PL and definitely belong in the 2nd level of English football. We expect this to be a difficult match with a tie.

Half with most goals – 2nd Half

We expect to see a good performance from both teams and we do not expect to see a lot of goals at the start. As for the early minutes of the game, we think that both teams will give their best not to concede and leave the action for the final parts of the game. We expect a 0:0 at half time, so you can consider it an option too.

Watford vs Sheffield Utd: Form, Recent Games, and News

Watford Preview

Watford got relegated from the Premier League after a terrible season and will have to fight for their place once again. The team is currently the most expensive side in the entire second tier, valued at 127 million euros. The team has had some changes throughout the off-season with multiple sales as well as new additions to the squad. The team should be quite solid right now and a contender for promotion again.

Sheffield Utd Preview

Sheffield United were one of the top teams in the previous season and the expectations are even higher this season. The team lost some players to free transfers but also signed new ones on loans as well as a solid purchase for 4.5 million of Anel Ahmedhodzic from Malmo – a 23-year-old talent for the centre-back position. Sheffield should be even better defensively this season.
