Competition: FA Cup
Market: Watford win to nil
Odds: 1/1 @ Bet 365
With a golden opportunity to book their spot in the fourth round of this year’s FA Cup, Watford will welcome League One strugglers Tranmere to Vicarage Road on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, picking up a 2-1 win over European hopefuls Wolves on New Year’s Day, few across the Premier League would have expected Watford’s stellar rise under new boss Nigel Pearson. Unbeaten in any of their last four appearances and winning three of those matchups, there is no doubt that the Hornets will still be boosted by their remarkable 2-0 victory over Manchester United last month. With a growing reputation for their form at Vicarage Road and also conceded just one goal in the capital since the 23rd of November, we’re backing another routine afternoon for a resurging Watford.
As for the visitors, while the mood in Watford’s camp might be continuing to skyrocket, Tranmere find themselves in the midst of an extended crisis. Sat three points adrift of safety in League One and coming off the back of a 4-1 hammering at home against Coventry on New Year’s Day, Micky Mellon’s men have recorded just a single victory in England’s third-tier since the middle of November and have continued to show some glaring issues away from Prenton Park. On a three-match losing run outside of Merseyside, Saturday could be yet another long afternoon for Tranmere.
Bet: Watford 1/1 to beat Tranmere to nil in Saturday’s FA Cup tie @ Bet 365
