Coventry vs Watford Predictions
- Sky Sports Football
- Four of Coventry’s last five home matches have produced under 2.5 goals.
- All but two of Watford’s 13 away trips this season have generated under 2.5 goals.
- The hosts have drawn five of their 13 fixtures at St Andrews, while Watford have picked up six draws from their 13 starts on the road.
Little Drama Anticipated at St Andrews
These two sides served up a cracker in November’s reverse fixture, but there’s reason to expect a much cagier encounter in this Saturday’s match-up at St Andrews.
Watford ran out 3-2 winners in the last meeting, but the balance of results for both teams this term suggests we’re unlikely to see as many thrills and spills here.
Only two of Watford’s 13 away trips this season have produced over 2.5 goals and despite the Hornets still being in the automatic promotion mix, they have managed just a poultry seven goals on the road, while conceding just nine.
And it’s been a similar story for Coventry at home, especially of late. The Sky Blues have netted and shipped at just a touch over a goal per game and four of their last five outings at St Andrews have also generated under 2.5.
Considering Coventry have won just one of their last five at home (D3, L1) and Watford have bagged just three victories from 13 on their travels (D6, L4), under 2.5 goals rates the best bet for this lunchtime kick-off and with neither team fancied for the points, we’re also going for a 1-1 correct score.
