Match Preview & Team News
The Rams have spent a lot of time sitting in the relegation zone this season, but solid & consistent performances in 2021 got them up to 19th place, three points above the red line. Things have changed to better since Wayne Rooney decided to retire and fully focus on his position of head manager. Derby have earned four victories in the last five divisional outings. At the moment of writing this preview Rams are yet to play their mid-week duel against Wycombe. Read on our Championship betting tips and predictions below.
Current Form And Home & Away Performances
Watford FC have returned to winning way last weekend with a convincing performance and high 6-0 victory against Bristol City. Ismaila Sarr and Ken Sema had a great day, scoring two goals each. Fans are hoping these two can continue in same rhythm and help Troy Deeney to start blooming/scoring again. Watford FC are currently occupying 4th place with 51 points, six behind Brentford.
There are still plenty of matches to be played, so one good streak of four or five straight wins could propel them into promotion spot. Period between late January to mid-February was awful for Hornets, failing to beat Coventry, Millwall or QPR and getting only two points from those matches. As for the opposition, Derby’s back line has kept three clean sheets in the last five outings. They managed to beat AFC Bournemouth, QPR and Bristol City with identical 1-0 result.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
We expect Derby’s good form in the back to continue at Vicarage Road as well. It’s hard for us to imagine a scenario with a lot of goals on Friday night. Under 2.5 FT is the primary pick at 11/20.
Watford FC have demonstrated force and strength last weekend against Bristol City at this stadium. There is no doubt they are in top 3 teams in the Championship this season. Home win is a logical pick here at 17/20 odds.
