Watford vs Sheff Utd prediction

Sheffield United head to Vicarage Road on Saturday looking to maintain their unbeaten record away from home to start the 2019-20 Premier League season.

The Blades have drawn at both Bournemouth and Chelsea before taking three points away from Goodison Park with a 2-0 win at Everton a fortnight ago.

Meanwhile, Watford prop up the Premier League table with just two points from their opening seven games and failing to score in four of those. It was only two weeks ago that they were hammered 8-0 at Manchester City.

Quique Sanchez Flores’ side look woeful going forward and aren’t having much better luck at the back. I am surprised that the bookmakers have made the Hornets the favourites this weekend.

Sheffield United are tactically sound under Chris Wilder, only beaten in the final 20 minute by league leaders Liverpool and taken a point away from Stamford Bridge.

I see the visitors to Hertfordshire on Saturday coming away with at least a point and I would not be surprised if they came away with all three. I make them the favourites in this match and there’s certainly great value in laying the hosts.

Best bet: Lay Watford at 2.22 with Betfair
