Blackpool vs Watford expert tips
Blackpool had a tough season so far at home. They are winless since the win against Reading at the beginning. On the other end, Watford is also struggling with their away form this season. Considering that they will face each other after a long period and home advantage we are anticipating Blackpool to win the game or the game to end in a stalemate. In this match, we can expect goals less than 2.5 because historically teams have scored 1 goal in a face-off.
