Match odds

Cardiff have been able to pick up three victories in the last five league encounters. They are in a very strong position coming into this match, but this position of strength soon dissipates when it comes to away games. Cardiff have been able to pick up just one point from a possible 21 on the road this season. Even though Watford are winless in six matches coming into this encounter, they have enough quality within the ranks and home advantage to consider going for a win. Our preview would take a win for Watford.

Watford vs Cardiff draw odds: 3.90

Cardiff win odds: 6.00

Correct Score odds

Watford have been able to score a decent number of goals of late and the presence of offensive plays like Roberto Pereyra do make them quite challenging to handle for any opposition – especially an opponent like Cardiff, who have conceded 13 goals in the last six away matches. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 2-0 win for Watford.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

The majority of the recent matches for Watford have involved more than 2.5 goals and it is down to an offence that has failed to keep out opposition. It is also bound to happen considering that Watford faced top opposition like Liverpool during this run. Cardiff are very poor going forward even if they have managed three consecutive wins at home and this aspect goes down even further when it comes to away matches. Our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds

Roberto Pereyra remains the top scorer for Watford after managing five league goals. Even though he has not been able to score in his last six appearances for the club, there was a positive improvement in his performance during the draw with Everton. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Roberto Pereyra.
