Watford Betting Odds, Tips and Betting Offers

Watford would’ve been targeting promotion back to the Premier League before a ball was kicked, so it’s fair to say things are not going to plan in Hertfordshire.

Latest Watford news

Watford headed into 2023/24 looking to improve on their 11th-place finish last term. However, following a play-off push midway through the season, the Hornets’ form took a nosedive in the second half of the campaign.

They are currently 14th in the table and can finish no higher than 13th if they win their remaining fixture.

Watford travel up north to face Middlesbrough on May 4 for their final game of the season.

Another Championship outfit that has gone through managerial change over the summer is Watford. Then again, this is a club that can change bosses in any other month of the year and therefore, Valerien Ismael may want to look at short-term accommodation in the Hertfordshire area.

With that said, there is nothing short-term about the new EFL Championship season and with 46 fixtures for the Hornets to contest, we will have all the biggest and best betting offers in your bid to beat the bookmakers at their own game.

About Watford

If you are looking for job security, you will not find it at Vicarage Road. The Watford job is more akin to work experience in recent years, as the club board operate what can only be considered as a ruthless hiring and firing policy.

A policy that changes managers like there is no tomorrow and with 20 different appointments (including caretakers) in the past decade, Watford is not a club where the man in charge receives a wristwatch for long service.

Of course, some would argue that up until the end of the 2021/22 season, Watford’s policy was a largely successful one. Regardless of the man in charge, the Hornets would still be considered as a Premier League entity.

They even made it to the 2019 edition of the FA Cup final – although they would also lose 6-0 to Manchester City and for all the jokes and criticism being volleyed in Watford’s direction, they could be brushed aside with decent enough results.

However, an employment strategy of this kind is always going to catch you out in the end. There is only so long that you can keep trying to swim against tide and by May 2022, Watford would finally sink out of the Premier League.

Even at the beginning of the previous campaign, many felt that Watford would not be in the Championship for long. The appointment of Rob Edwards was considered shrewd and one that offered a new direction for the club.

Then again, old habits have a habit of dying hard and with Edwards being sacked just 11 games into his tenure, the duo of Slaven Bilic and Chris Wilder would not last much longer during their own stints at Vicarage Road.

Which means it is now down to Valerien Ismael to take the reins and if there is one thing that Watford have been lacking over the past few years, it is an identity. If the former Barnsley boss can mould one quickly, it may just aid the Hornets’ latest bid for promotion.
