Leicester City v Watford betting preview

Watford Observer: David Nugent has a great record against the Hornets: Action Images David Nugent has a great record against the Hornets: Action Images

Watford are 4-1 outsiders as they look to halt Championship leaders Leicester City’s nine-match winning run.

The Foxes have been in exceptional form this season and are unbeaten at home since November, which reflects why Ladbrokes make them 4-6 favourites for victory tomorrow afternoon.

The Hornets have won four of the last six meetings between the sides but their most recent clash resulted in a 3-0 victory for Leicester at Vicarage Road in November.

Watford have lost their last two away games 4-2 despite leading 2-0 at both Manchester City and Nottingham Forest.

This is another tough assignment against the promotion favourites but it could be worth backing a home win and both teams to score. Beppe Sannino’s side have shown they can get goals in difficult away matches and Coral are offering 13/5 on a Leicester win with Watford also finding the net.

David Nugent has scored eight times in 12 appearances against the Hornets and has already netted 17 this season.

Taking 6/5 with Betfred for the Leicester striker to add another this weekend doesn’t look the worst bet in the world.

Kevin Phillips has an even better record against his former club with nine goals from ten appearances so it would be no surprise if the veteran came off the bench and scored. Betfred are dangling 15/8 to score any time and this could be another wise wager.

Good news folks, i see that Nigel Pearson has been named Manager of the Month for January and we all know what a curse THAT carries !!

My prediction earlier this week of 0-2 to the Hornets looks even better now.
