Derby County vs Watford Betting Tips

Derby had captain Wayne Rooney to thank, snapping their four-match losing streak with aplomb at Carrow Road with a late free-kick winner. Norwich had two-thirds of possession, more shots and missed big goalscoring opportunities, but were duly punished by a busy Derby side.

Scotland goalkeeper David Marshall made five saves to earn his first clean sheet since sealing a move from Wigan over the summer. It'll be interesting to see whether he's as busy, and how his defensive teammates perform under pressure against Watford here.

Since Premier League relegation back in July, the Hornets have undergone significant changes but still possess top-flight quality across the pitch. Senegal international Ismaila Sarr has been linked with a lucrative move but stayed put over the summer, while Joao Pedro and summer signing Jeremy Ngakia have already caught the eye this term.

Can they mark their return to club football with an away victory here?

Derby County vs Watford Correct Score Predictions

Derby and Watford are in contrasting positions, four matches into the new Championship season. The Rams won their first league game of the campaign just before the international break, while Watford suffered their first loss.

This will be an interesting clash between sides with lofty ambitions. Derby boast a superior H2H record (11 wins, five defeats, two draws), but haven't played Watford since April 2015 so I'm predicting BTTS here.
