The bookmakers give preference to the hosts: Manchester United – 1,27, Draw – 6,30, Watford – 12,75. If we take a look at the head-to-head stats, the Hornets have been beaten in Manchester in the last 3 matches, scoring only once.

Besides, there is a good bet “Total Goals over 2,5” (1,65) as the Red Devils have seen over 2,5 goals in 8 of their last 9 games against the Hornets in all competitions. If you believe in Mourinho’s side, it’s worth considering the bet “Total Goals by Home Team over 2” (1,70).
