Middlesbrough - Watford betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 12:30 on 05/04/2021 played @ Riverside Stadium refereed by Tim Robinson

Middlesbrough have their work cut out for them if they want to beat Watford. They are widely considered to be the weaker team – though the difference is not huge, to be fair. Overall, it’s shaping up to be an exciting showdown.

Watford are regarded as favourites, but that doesn’t mean they can relax. With an almost negligible difference in the perceived strength of these two teams, sub-standard play is a recipe for disaster.

Middlesbrough are coming on the back of an away draw (:) in the previous round against AFC Bournemouth . The score was tied at both half-time and the final whistle, which isn’t too bad for The Boro considering the 2.15 odds on them.

The Hornets haven’t exactly been playing top of their game lately. Last round’s home draw : against Sheffield Wednesday was far from a disaster, but most of us – including the world’s best online bookmakers – expected a lot more considering they played at home.

Middlesbrough’s attackers don’t seem to need a home-field advantage when it comes to scoring. With 6 goals in their last three away games, it’s hard to find issues with their attacking play.

The visiting team are doing rather well offensively – at least as far as their latest 3 matches can tell us. They’ve scored more than 5 times in total over the course of these games.

We can rely on the teams’ previous meeting as a point of reference. Earlier in the season, The Hornets won a Championship match against The Boro in a relatively close game. With that in mind, the 2.45 odds on the visitors winning make a lot of sense.

We’re in for an exciting showdown – due to a complete lack of suspensions or injuries, both teams have their full lineups at their disposal. Because they are more likely to win, though, this should work out in the visitors’ advantage.

An Over 2.5 Goals is a great bet if you like staying on the safe side. The betting value for this market is strong compared even to the 2.40, which makes this an easy betting prediction to make.
