Sunderland continue their play-off push in the Championship this weekend as they face Watford on Saturday.
Sunderland currently sit 6th in the Championship with seventeen wins, fourteen draws and thirteen losses from forty-four games this season.
The Black Cats are having an excellent campaign in the Championship following promotion from League One last time out as they look too secure what would have been an unlikely top six finish coming into the season.
They enter this game in great form having won three and drawn one of their last four matches, the most recent of which was a 2-1 win away at fellow play-off rivals West Bromwich Albion.
The win at West Brom was huge one for Sunderland's play-off hopes and it now means their destiny is in their own hands.
Their form at home is a slight concern coming into this game though, with Tony Mowbray's men winning just one of their last five encounters at The Stadium of Light.
Still, they'll feel like they have the wind in their sails following the win at The Hawthorns last time out and given what is on the line they'll firmly be up for this one.
Sunderland are the clear favourites here and should be confident of taking all three points.
Watford currently sit 13th in the Championship with fifteen wins, fourteen draws and fifteen losses from forty-four games this season.
The Hornets have had an extremely disappointing campaign having spent the majority of it trying to claw their way into the top six despite entering the season as the favourites for the title.
Despite boasting a squad laden with individual quality Watford have been unable to make a mark on the league, something that few would have expected coming into the campaign.
They enter this game in poor form having won just one of their last five matches, the most recent of which was a 1-0 defeat away at Hull City.
The defeat at Hull marked their second loss on the bounce in a two-game run that killed any hope they had of making the play-offs.
Their record away from home is even worse, with The Hornets failing to win any of their last nine games on the road.
Anyone associated with Watford Football Club is likely desperate for this underwhelming season to conclude so they can regroup in the summer and go again next year. They're limping over the finish line and they're likely fall to another defeat here.
For our Sunderland vs. Watford prediction, we're going for a 2-1 win for the home side.
