A London derby on Saturday and this match will be played from 5.30pm, live in front of the Sky Sports cameras. As you would expect from a local derby, both sides will be going all out to secure the points and we’re looking forward to a thriller. Here are our top Watford v Chelsea betting tips and prediction.
A Closer Look
Watford may enjoy home advantage, but they go into this match having made a poor start to the season. Fans aren’t holding out much hope for the top half finish they had dreamt about during the long summer months. It’s much likely they will spend much of the campaign battling to distance themselves from the relegation zone.
Frank Lampard didn’t get the Chelsea reunion he had hoped for either. The former player turned manager tried to work against the transfer restrictions placed upon the Stamford Bridge club. He has been forced to place his trust in youth and the squad have blown hot and cold so far. However, they are moving in the right direction and are all working hard for the cause.
A Win for the Youngsters
This is a match Chelsea really should be winning and bookmakers expect them to do just that. They have priced the visitors up as hot favourites. The away win can be added to your weekend multiples at a useful 14/19 – market best price when getting your cash down at 10Bet. That’s sure to catch the eye of many backers and it’s likely to be popular.
The money men have been quick to write off the chances of a home win. Those who disagree can take a pop at Watford who is 15/4 with most firms, including Ladbrokes. The draw is worth a second look at 3/1 (Bet365).
