Watford vs Stoke – Prediction, and Match Preview
Watford vs Stoke – On the final day of the season, Watford will host Stoke at Vicarage Road. After recent defeats, both sides will be hoping to close the season on a positive note, but there is little to suggest either team will succeed on Monday.
Even though the Hornets played in the top division of English football last year, they were nowhere near the race for promotion.
Their campaign was unimpressive and full of ups and downs. The team has had a number of managerial opportunities this season, but these haven’t really helped their goals.
Watford will enter the final day match coming off of three games in which they have lost twice and drawn once. Six goals have been conceded during this process, including two last Saturday during the away draw against Sunderland.
One of the key factors contributing to Watford’s demise in the Championship this season has been a lack of attention to detail at the defense.
The offensive Stoke City players will be ecstatic about the match at Vicarage Road given that they have conceded two or more goals in five of the last seven league games.
Recently, the visitors have had trouble scoring goals. They have lost six straight games without picking up a victory, scoring just three goals throughout that span.
Watford vs Stoke – Betting Analysis
After suffering a crushing 0-4 loss to the Hornets in the rematch during the first half of the season at the bet365 Stadium, stoke will be determined to get retribution today.
Watford has defeated the Potters three times in the last four head-to-head meetings, but they still have a poor home record in this matchup, with 6 wins and 8 losses in the previous 16 meetings at Vicarage Road.
In each of the previous four head-to-head contests between the two rivals, there were at least three goals scored. Since neither team has anything to lose, this one might go either way.
The Over 2.5 goals FT & Both sides To Score choice makes sense at the odds of 1.95 given that we are on the final day of the season and that we’ve seen some goal fests in the most recent head-to-head games between these sides.
