Manchester United vs. Watford Predictions and Picks

Manchester United to Win 1-0, 2-0, or 3-0 (+160)

This Premier League has already been filled with surprising results, but not many offering more shock than Watford’s 4-1 victory over the Red Devils back on Matchweek 12 in November, a result that hovered around +550 at kick-off. We expect Saturday’s reverse fixture in Old Trafford to spell out differently as the Watford backline has been woeful throughout the season. The Hornets have notched just two clean sheets in Premier League play this season, easily the lowest rate in the league while Manchester United has failed to score in just five matches, the fourth-lowest rate in the league. It very well could be a long afternoon for the Watford defense 

To maximize value on these contrasting trends, we will be backing the favorites to win by a scoreline of 1-0, 2-0, or 3-0 at a solid plus-money number. It’s nearly a given that Watford will concede at least one goal based on their season’s track record while we expect Manchester United’s talent to keep the fourth-lowest scoring side at bay in their home stadium.
