Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario to this match will be Watford don't lose. Looking to the last exhibitions of both teams it's be expected that the visiting team have more initiative in the match and they create more danger to the opponent.
In contrast, it's foreseen that the home team choose a more defensive approach to conquer, at least, one point.
