Reason For Reading vs Watford Predictions

  • Reading have conceded only once in their opening three games
  • Watford have kept three clean sheets from three this term
  • Watford have scored from just 6% of their shots in the league so far

Watford edged out Luton 1-0 last weekend to continue their solid start in the Championship, but the Hornets can’t match Reading’s pace so far. The hosts have a perfect record after three games, while they’ve only conceded one goal.

Watford are still yet to concede a league goal this season, while they could match their great defensive start from 1988-89 with another clean sheet this weekend. The Hornets have faced fewer shots on target than any other Championship side this season (5), so they should expect to keep Reading at bay for most of this one.

However, the visitors have converted just 6% of their chances so far. We expect another tough day up front for Watford here, while Reading have created less than seven chances per game this season. Given that form, we think that backing against both teams to score is the value here. Meanwhile, with Reading maintaining a 100% record, our correct score prediction backs a slender win for the Royals.
