Reason For Derby vs Watford Predictions

  • Watford have scored only twice in four league games
  • Just three goals have been scored across Watford’s matches so far
  • The Hornets have lost 11 of their last 15 away league games

Derby ended their losing streak with their vital 1-0 over Norwich just before the international break. That prevented them from making one of the worst starts in their history, but can things continue to improve for the Rams?

Watford have been in mixed form in the Championship, with goals a major problem for the Hornets. They’ve scored only twice in four matches so far, with just three goals scored in total across their matches.

Meanwhile, Derby have failed to score in both home games so far and they have converted just 4% of their chances this term. With Watford restricting their opponents to an average of eight shots per game, that leaves us backing a low-scoring clash here.

We’re backing under 2.5 goals to be scored in this one, with Watford also scoring from just 4% of their chances so far. Neither look clinical in attack, so we’re backing goals to be in short supply between the pair.

Watford have picked up just one win in their last 15 away league games (D3 L11), failing to win any of the last 10 on the road. As a result, we’re going with another 1-0 victory for Derby as our correct score prediction.
