For our Luton vs. Watford prediction, we're going for a 2-1 win for the home side.
Luton Town continue their play-off push in the Championship as they face Watford this weekend.
Luton Town currently sit 4th in the Championship with seventeen wins, thirteen draws and eight losses from thirty-eight games this season.
It's been an excellent campaign for The Hatters who are looking to reach the play-offs for the second successive season in what would be an excellent feat for the club.
They enter this game amidst a fine run of form having gone unbeaten in their last six matches, winning four and drawing two of them.
Most recently Luton drew 1-1 away at Sunderland, a result that while solid in a vacuum will have been disappointing given they were leading up until the 86th minute only to concede a penalty that was ultimately dispatched.
Their home form has been encouragingly strong in recent weeks too, with The Hatters winning three, drawing one and losing one of their last five games on home soil.
Luton are seven points clear of Norwich City in 7th with eight games to go so a top six finish is firmly in their own hands. They face a side here that are there for the taking and should not accept less than three points.
Watford currently sit 10th in the Championship with fourteen wins, thirteen draws and eleven losses from thirty-eight games this season.
The Hornets have had a very underwhelming campaign after entering the season as one of the top three promotion favourites only to spend the vast majority of the season attempting, unsuccessfully, to break into the top six.
Now on their third manager of the season, they enter this game having won only one of their last five matches, the most recent of which was a 1-1 draw against bottom of the league Wigan Athletic.
Their form away from home has been shoddy of late, with The Hornets failing to win any of their last six matches on the road, drawing two and losing four of those.
Watford battered Luton 4-0 when the two sides met in the league back in October, but Watford were a much better side back at the start of the season and have only regressed. Luton, meanwhile, are much more competent and have to enter this game as favourites.
Watford are five points shy of the play-off places and are still within a shout of finishing in the top six. They do, though, need to improve drastically and the signs are yet to appear.
