Watford-vs-Leeds
Watford x Leeds

Friday’s football game between Watford and Leeds United will bring down the curtain on the Championship round 39. The Hornets aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Birmingham City. But seeing that they have little to play for in the season finale. Home win should not be considered. Wesley Hoedt serves the second of his two-game ban, while all Ken Seam, Jamal Lewis, and Ryan Andrews should recover in time to face the Whites.

Leeds United, on the other hand, are leading the chase for automatic promotion and given their fine performance in a 2-0 win over Millwall, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the league leaders. Connor Roberts is unlikely to feature against Watford after limping off with injury in Wales’ defeat to Poland, whereas both Pascal Struijk and Stuart Dallas remain in the recovery room.

How the bookies view it

Leeds United have been installed as overwhelming favourites and are priced at 3/5 by AUGBET to claim the win. Watford are considered outsiders among the bookies with a home win priced at 4/1 while a draw is set at odds of 16/5 .

Head to head

Leeds United have a 10-7 advantage with five draws from 22 previous matches against Watford. Leeds have also won the last three meetings and claimed a 3-0 victory in the reverse fixture back in September.

Players to watch

Centre-backs Ethan Ampadu and Joe Rodon continue to impress for Leeds United, helping them to five shutouts in their last six away matches. Both men are expected to feature on. Friday and will be keen for another clean sheet at 7/5 with AUGBet.

At the other end of the pitch, Patrick Bamford continues to deliver the goods for Leeds United, scoring in four of the last six matches. The striker is priced at 6/4 to find the net on Friday.

Watford vs Leeds Head-to-head

  • Leeds secured a 3-0 win over Watford on home soil in the reverse fixture played in September 2023.
  • Leeds has won 3 consecutive games against Watford, having lost four on the bounce prior to that.
  • We have seen over 2.5 goals in the last two head-to-head meetings.
  • Watford won twice in the last five head-to-head meetings.

Watford vs Leeds Prediction

Leeds are clear favourites to pick the maximum points against Watford on the road. The host will, however, count on home support to take anything from this game.

My money is definitely on Leeds to win, since they are a team full of confidence. Their long unbeaten streak will buoy their fans in the League.

I am also backing over 2.5 goals at full-time as the last two head-to-head meetings have produced over 2.5 goal outcome.
