For our Watford vs. Birmingham prediction, we're going for a 2-1 win for the home side.
Watford continue to pursue their faint play-off hopes as they face Birmingham City in the Championship this weekend.
Watford currently sit 11th in the Championship with thirteen wins, eleven draws and twelve losses from thirty-six games this season.
The Hornets have had a deeply disappointing season in the Championship. Having been expected to challenge for automatic promotion, Watford find themselves slowly slipping out of the race for the pay-offs as they enter the final stretch of the campaign now on their third manager of the season.
They're coming into this game amidst a fairly poor run of form, too, having won one, drawn two and lost two of their last five matches in the league.
Their most recent game saw them slip to a 1-0 defeat at Queens Park Rangers, a side woefully out of form and on a lengthy winless run. As such, Watford are now three games without a win themselves and are looking increasingly less likely to secure a top six finish.
Their form at home is solid but unremarkable having won two and drawn three of their last five matches on home soil.
It's reaching the do or die stage of the season for Watford as they sit six points shy of the play-off places with ten games to go. They're still in the race, but they cannot allow the gap to widen and they should at the very least keep the gap as it is as they face one of the leagues lesser sides here.
Birmingham City currently sit 18th in the Championship with eleven wins, six draws and nine losses from thirty-six games this season.
The Blues have had a hugely successful season on the whole having been predicted by most to finish in the bottom three only to find themselves ten ten points clear of the relegation zone with ten games remaining.
They enter this game amidst a shaky run of form overall having won one, drawn one and lost three of their last five matches, but having taken four points from their last two games they can feel as though they've turned over a new leaf.
Their most recent game saw them secure a 2-0 win over fellow strugglers Rotherham United.
Their away form isn't great but also isn't terrible having won one, drawn two and lost two of their last five matches on the road.
These two sides drew 1-1 when they met back in August, and while Birmingham would take that result in a heartbeat Watford would be mightily disappointed.
