Watford are the 6/5 favourites with Coral to pick up three points tomorrow at home to Middlesbrough.

The Hornets have taken seven points from their last three games and will be targeting a late-season surge.

Middlesbrough have certainly not been crowd pleasers lately with three successive goalless draws for Aitor Karanka’s team and they have only scored one goal in their last five matches.

The Teesiders have also kept eight clean sheets in the last ten league games.

With this in mind, it could be worth a speculative bet on under 1.5 goals with William Hill at 12/5.

Beppe Sannino’s side, who are one point and place beneath this weekend’s opponents, have found a bit of form in the Championship and it could be worth siding with them to win to nil against the goal-shy visitors.

Ladbrokes are offering 13/5 on this possibility at Vicarage Road.
