The odds are true for the time of publishing. They are subject to change. Our recommended bookmaker for this match is Ladbrokes.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

In their last 12 competitive matches as visitors, Reading has failed to score 5 times. Interestingly enough, this has happened only against teams with a lower seed than Reading. It appears the team is motivated to play hard on the road against good competition. This is exactly the case here. Also, Watford has scored in 7 straight.

Half Time/Full Time – Watford

The late-blooming Watford has achieved those victories lately because they start strong right off the gates. In 6 of the last 7 games, The Hornets have had the lead at HT and went on to win the match. The only time this didn’t happen was last week against Boro where they actually led at Half-time but conceded a late equalizer.

Time of 1st Watford Goal – 11-20 mins

This is an ambitious bet but we get 13/2 for it and betting a small amount is a wise choice. As stated above, In the last 7 games that Watford played, they had the lead 6 times, and in all 6, they scored before the 17th minute. This prediction also goes well with the fact that Reading has missing defenders.

Watford vs Reading: Are both teams in a good spot?

Watford is in incredible form having lost only 1 out of their last 13 games. And that happened all the way back in February. The team drew its last game versus Middlesbrough after winning 6 straight. It doesn’t look like the Hornets will be able to get to the 1 seed as Norwich is sitting tight with an 8-point advantage. It also doesn’t look like Watford may lose the 2nd seed to Brentford who happens to be 9 points behind but with a match at hand. Troy Deeney is out with an injury.

Reading is in a tight situation, however. The victory against Derby was vital for their Top 6 ambitions. Bournemouth, though, also took home the victory in the last round so the 6th seed is very much in contention. Reading has 2 key defenders missing – Michael Morrison and Tom McIntyre along with 2 midfielders – John Swift and Felipe Araruna. All 4 players may prove to be too important and it is very likely that Reading loses this upcoming match against a very strong side.
