Another draw looks worth a decent bet this weekend when the Hornets host Reading.

Watford have drawn five of their last seven games so backing this result at a generous 5/2 with Coral looks like a shrewd move.

To add to the logic behind this, four of the last six games at Vicarage Road between the two sides have finished in a draw.

Watford remain unbeaten under new head coach Beppe Sannino and with the Royals’ form being relatively indifferent, there is little interest in betting on an away win.

By the same token, three of Sannino’s four games in charge have ended all-square so odds of 19/20 with Coral on a Watford win look far too stingy.

Goals could be in short supply tomorrow with four of Watford’s last five matches having under three goals. Reading also haven’t scored more than one goal in a game since November so backing under 2.5 goals also looks favourable at 10/11 with Paddy Power.

If you want to combine the two bets, Ladbrokes are offering the draw and under 2.5 goals at a tempting 31/10.
