Middlesbrough - Watford betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 16:00 on 28/01/2023 played @ Riverside Stadium refereed by Darren Bond

Betting odds can be illusive at times and Watford are more than capable of pulling an upset. However, Middlesbrough should have a clear path to victory if they stick to the plan.

It’s highly unlikely that Watford will manage to get some points this round. Middlesbrough are at a considerable advantage, so even a draw would be a success for the visitors.

Though not exactly hard favourites, The Boro were still more likely to win than lose their previous Championship away match at Sunderland. The two teams tied at halftime, only for the game’s hosts to completely dominate the proceedings in the later 45 minutes and end the bout 2:0.

Nothing seemed to go according to plan for Watford in their previous Championship outing. They conceded in the first half but managed to catch up for a 1:1 draw before the end. Considering they were the favoured home team, however, that’s not exactly a major success.

Middlesbrough leave quite the impression whenever we see them play in front of their fans at Riverside Stadium. They scored more than 5 goals in total the last 3 times they did so, which is a solidly impressive record.

Middlesbrough have a narrow defeat on record from earlier in the season. With home-field advantage, however, they’re expected to win this showdown – at least as far as the bookies are concerned.

With no injuries or suspensions to deal with, both teams will be able to give their all this Saturday.

This is a solid match for those that like betting on longshots. Our advice is to pick Draw/Home on the Half Time/Full Time market. The probability of winning is not that high if we’re being honest, but it’s the best offer if you’re shooting for betting value.
