Watford are odds on favourites to continue their impressive start to the Championship season at home to struggling Huddersfield Town.

The Hornets are 3/4 with William Hill to see off their opponents at Vicarage Road which looks a fair price considering the side are second with three wins from four games.

Contrast that with managerless Huddersfield, who have picked up just one win this season, and it is easy to see why the visitors are available at 4/1 with Ladbrokes.

But again it may pay off to back the hosts in the winning margin market. Watford won by three goals last weekend and this is on offer at a tempting 9/1. A two-goal win also appeals at 9/2 rather than backing Watford at odds on.

Troy Deeney has been prolific for the Hornets with 11 goals in as many league matches at Vicarage Road. This makes the 6/5 on offer with Bretfred to score anytime an absolute steal.

The last six meetings between the teams have resulted in over 2.5 goals so you can see why 3/4 is the biggest price available for this to happen.

I just hate these matches where please start talking about how many we'll win by instead of just whether or not we'll win.
