Watford and Birmingham have made a mixed start to the season, taking three points and one respectively from their opening two games and they’re difficult to separate as they face-off at Vicarage Road.
Some bookies price both at 8/5 while Ladbrokes favour the hosts and chalk 7/4 against the Blues. It’s Stan James’ 5/2 for the draw that stands out in the match betting though given that a strong case can be made for neither.
William Hill offer 6/1 for the fixture to finish one-apiece but the real value lies in the first scorer betting and it’s not, as many might think, in the shape of former Hornet Marlon King at 6/1 (Coral).
Nicola Zigic has struck twice already this term, despite his team remaining winless and the towering striker is too big at 7/1 with bet365 to break the deadlock in this one.
Elsewhere, Bodog offer 11/10 about Sheffield Wednesday securing a second consecutive home success, this time at Millwall’s expense and Wolves who were also victors on their own patch in midweek, can grab another maximum haul as they host Derby, a result Coral quote at 4/5.
