Our top Watford vs MK Dons betting predictions and tips

If you are looking for help to find the best bet for the Watford vs MK Dons duel, you have come to the right place:

Watford to Win

This can be a very interesting match, although it's still pretty understandable why Watford is the favourite to win. The team started the new season in Championship well, with two wins and three draws.

Meanwhile, MK Dons only collected four points from the first five rounds of the new League One season. So, while the guests have the quality to put up a fight here, they don't' seem to be in good enough form to pose a serious threat and we expect Watford to win the game.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

All five matches in Championship that Watford played this season have gone under 2.5 total goals and the team averaged a mere 1.20 goals per game so far in the league.

Meanwhile, MK Dons did a bit better since they averaged 2.00 goals per game in League One, but they've gone under 2.5 total goals in three of their five matches. So, we expect this game to go under 2.5 total goals as well.

Watford vs MK Dons preview: Possible lineups, latest form, and team news

In order to learn more about this game, we will now take a better look at both teams ahead of their upcoming duel:

Watford

After the disappointing last season in which they were relegated from Premier League, Watford had a good start to the new season in the second rank of English football. After the first five rounds, they are second in the standings with two wins and three draws. Clearly, the teams' ambitions of returning to Premier League are pretty evident.

Meanwhile, Tom Cleverly, Samuel Kalu, and Tom Dele-Bashiru are all out with injuries, while Ismaila Sarr will likely miss the game as well since he was on the team's injury list over the weekend.

Watford predicted lineup:

Okoye – Cathcart, Kamara, Troost-Ekong, Gaspar – Sema, Kayembe, Choudhury, Gosling – Louza -, Bayo

MK Dons

With two wins, one draw, and two losses in the first five games of the new season, Cambridge is currently in the tenth place in League One standings with seven points. That is a solid start for the team, whose ambitions are pretty much ending the season in the middle of the table in the third rank of English football.

When it comes to team news, MK Dons are without Tennal Watson, Mo Elsa, and Josh McEachran, while Will Grigg and Nathan Holland are also on the team's injury list and questionable for this game.

MK Dons predicted lineup:

Cumming – O'Hora, Tucker, Lewington – Devoy, Johnson, Robson, Lawrence – Grant, Dennis, Kemp
