Watford vs Sunderland: Our top betting tips

Sunderland went viral in the week for one of their goals against Reading. Can they deliver that sort of quality again against Watford? Find out with our Watford vs Sunderland match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

The Black Cats to see off Hornets

Sunderland and Watford are only separated by one point in the Championship standings with both sides having played nine games but the recent form is not as close as that and, as such, we are backing Sunderland to win at Vicarage Road on Saturday. Watford have lost three of their last five matches, two of which have been at home, and won just once in that period. Sunderland meanwhile have won three of their past five games and, notably, turned in a first class performance away at high flying Reading in the week. With that considered, we think Sunderland will pose a big challenge for Watford here and, based on current form, we're not convinced the Hornets will handle it.

Someone will fail to score

Our next Watford vs Sunderland prediction is that at least one side will fail to find the back of the net. Watford have seen two of their last five games end with a ‘nil' in the final scoreline, which isn't amazingly convincing, however, none of Sunderland's last five have seen both teams score. Furthermore, three of the last four head to head games have seen at least one side keeping it clean at the back. None of that hardly sets this game up to be a frantic end-to-end affair, does it?

Can Mowbray's men impress again?

It might be hard to believe but the last time these two sides met it was a Premier League clash. Here we are some five years later and both have ambitions of getting back there – despite having been on very different journeys since that previous clash. Will they deliver a game of Premier League quality when the meet?

It's been a tough spell for Watford with the wheels starting to fall off after a bright start to the campaign. Injuries to big players, such as Tom Cleverley, certainly haven't helped but, that said, you'd think this squad had enough quality in it to ‘get by'. They could really do with finding a win.

Watford Predicted lineup – Bachmann, Cathcart, Sierralta, Kabasele, Ngakia, Kayembe, Choudhury, Sema, Joao Pedro, Sarr, Bayo

Sunderland have recorded a couple of really handsome victories since Tony Mowbray arrived at the Stadium of Light and they're doing so despite missing a few players. Dan Ballard, Dennis Cirkin and Ross Stewart remain on the sidelines. Based on what we've seen to date, they might struggle to get back into Mogga's side.

Sunderland Predicted lineup – Patterson, Alese, Batth, O'Nien, Clarke, Evans, Neil, Gooch, Roberts, Pritchard, Simms
