Huddersfield are up against Watford at the John Smith’s Stadium as it is becoming increasingly apparent that Huddersfield would finish at the bottom. Jan Siewert is aware of the growing discontent amongst supporters, but he remains confident about a positive 2019-20 season in the Championship. The Terriers’ first aim will be to avoid the bottom, but it will be difficult now given Fulham’s six-point advantage with four games left. Watford are holding on to the final top 10 place with the club’s focus being shifted entirely towards the FA Cup final. Follow all our predictions, free bets, and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Huddersfield lost for a sixth successive match, as they were thrashed 4-0 by Tottenham last weekend. Since the glimmer of hope with the win over Wolves towards the end of February, Huddersfield have lost all of their games and have been relegated.
Watford were quite unlucky to lose 1-0 against Arsenal at the Vicarage Road. This was only the second defeat for Watford in five games, but they were playing with 10 men for almost 80 minutes.
Watford beat Huddersfield with a comfortable 3-0 score in the meeting earlier in the campaign. The last game between these two clubs at the John Smith’s Stadium took place just over a year ago when Huddersfield managed a 1-0 win thanks to Tom Ince’s late goal. Our betting tips and predictions would go with a win for Watford.

Watford have been in a good moment of late. The only defeats suffered by the Hornets in 2019 have been against teams in the top six places. Meanwhile, Huddersfield are hoping to avoid a seventh consecutive loss. The team has lost eight successive matches already this season, but a bad finish to the campaign will set the tone for next season in the Championship. However, Huddersfield can offer only little in several areas and our preview would go with a victory for Watford.

Huddersfield Town vs Watford draw odds: 3.90
Huddersfield Town win odds: 4.40
Correct Score odds
Even though Watford will be without top scorer Troy Deeney due to suspension, the team has enough quality in order to get over Huddersfield. The absence of Gerard Deulofeu only adds to the lack of creativity within Watford. Our correct score prediction, though, will go with a 2-0 Watford win by taking into account Huddersfield’s poor defence.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There have been over 2.5 goals in three out of the last four games involving Huddersfield, who have largely conceded in away matches. Only Leicester City and Manchester City have been able to get over 2.5 goals at the John Smith’s Stadium in 2019. Our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
The absence of Troy Deeney and Gerard Deulofeu is a blow as the two players have contributed 16 goals together this season. Roberto Pereyra now becomes Watford’s biggest creative player in their absence. However, Abdoulaye Doucouré has come up with some strong performances with his incredible energy levels. The midfielder scored in the games against Manchester United and Fulham. He has two goals in his last four matches. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Abdoulaye Doucoure.
