Sheffield Wednesday vs Watford Prediction

Sheffield Wednesday have broken league’s spending rules, and official commission decided to deduct 12 points for this team even before the season started. This means The Owls will have a rough time avoiding relegation.

The new campaign started really well, with a bit unexpected 2-0 win on the road against Cardiff City. Both goals were scored in the first half by Josh Windass and Jordan Rhodes. Sheffield continued with good results during the mid-week too, beating Rochdale in League Cup.

Watford FC looked rock-solid in the back last Friday in narrow win against Middlesbrough. The team performed really well during the pre-season, winning last three games and even beating Tottenham. Since both sides are in solid shape, we predict a draw here.
