Watford head into the home match against Fulham knowing that their opponents could be relegated by the end of this match. Watford, though, are aiming for a European spot with the team only one point away from the seventh place. Meanwhile, Fulham are 16 points away from safety and could be demoted to the Championship if results go against them in this midweek round of fixtures. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Watford’s poor results on the road continued with the team losing 2-1 against Manchester United, but Javi Gracia’s team did put in a good show. The Hornets have picked up two wins in the last five games.
Fulham moved closer towards relegation after a 2-0 loss against Manchester City during the weekend. This was the eighth successive defeat for the Cottagers in all competitions.
The previous meeting between Fulham and Watford are produced a 1-1 draw at Craven Cottage. Fulham’s last trip to Vicarage Road was in the Championship back in 2015 when they lost 1-0 to Watford. Our betting tips and predictions would go with a win for the home team.

Fulham will have a sense of disappointment around the team and they are unlikely to put in a lot of effort knowing that they are on the brink of relegation. The team has managed only four victories throughout the campaign and they are only slightly better than Huddersfield in terms of points return. Watford have been playing good football of late and they were quite unlucky to not get anything out of the game against United at Old Trafford. However, Watford will have one eye on the upcoming FA Cup semi-final against Wolves. Still, our preview would go with a win for Watford.

Watford vs Fulham draw odds: 4.20
Fulham win odds: 5.25
Correct Score odds
Fulham have been a disaster at the back with an incredible 72 goals conceded. They are the only team in the division with more than 70 goals conceded already and the team committed many silly mistakes in the recent game against City. Watford have the potential to capitalise on such defences even if they have scored only over 1.3 goals per game this season. Our correct score prediction would pick a 2-0 win for Watford.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Since the home team will be distracted to a great extent by the upcoming FA Cup semi-final, it is expected that manager Javi Gracia will be making changes to the starting line-up. This will reduce the impact from Watford going forward, but the poor defence of Fulham is likely to ensure a couple of goals. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Gerard Deulofeu has been one of the important players for Watford this season. He has seven league goals so far in the campaign. Even though there is a strong likelihood of the Spaniard being rested for this match, he represents the best choice to back when it comes to expecting goals in this match. He has been able to get four goals in his last five league appearances. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Gerard Deulofeu.
