Watford vs Sunderland: Top Free Betting Tips

Watford travelled to Ewood Park for their midweek Championship fixture and suffered a 2-0 defeat. They will want to wash the stink of that loss at Vicarage Road but will be wary of the visiting Sunderland.

Sunderland to Win

The last time Sunderland arrived at Vicarage Road, they suffered the ignominy of a 1-0 defeat. The Black Cats will arrive to sting the Hornets in their latest meeting and have the form to come away with the prized scalp. The hosts have suffered three defeats in their last five outings while it is three wins for the visitors.

Over 2.5 Goals

Goals have been the norm in recent matches involving Watford and Sunderland. Interestingly, both sides have seen two of their last three outings conclude with Over 2.5 Goals. Moreover, they have scored 12 goals between them in this period, adding confidence to our high-scoring prediction for this meeting.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

Sunderland's defence has impressed with just two goals conceded in their last five outings. The Black Cats would love to keep up this exception statistic but will have to let it go. Watford has scored six goals in their four home fixtures and would surely trouble the scorers. Moreover, mistakes will be made by both sides given the rapid turnaround of fixtures in recent weeks.

Watford vs Sunderland: Team News and Match Preview


The Watford support will be concerned with their recent performances in the Championship. The Hornets have held their own at the back but struggled to impress going forward. Averaging just one goal per match, the attacking lineup is the main hindrance in their greater points accumulation.


Sunderland completes the top-six thanks to their superior goal difference. While they have only allowed nine goals, their tally of 14 goals has allowed them to dream big. They will be concerned with their away results but that too has seen a turnaround in recent weeks with two wins from three attempts.
