Leeds vs Watford prediction

Leeds have been quite vulnerable at the back this season and Watford will be looking to take advantage of their defensive problems.

The Hornets have scored at least three goals in their last three away matches against Leeds and they have won their last four matches against Saturday’s opposition in all competitions.

The last six meetings between these two sides have produced a total of 23 goals and a high scoring game seems likely here.

Prediction: Over 2.5 goals.
