Watford saw their game with Burnley cancelled at late notice which means last time they played was on the tenth when they lost to Brentford. It was a fourth successive loss for the London side who are just two point above Burnley in 18th. At Vicarage Road, the Hornets have struggled winning just one of their last seven.
Crystal Palace were last in action on Wednesday evening when they battled out a 2-2 draw with Southampton. They are now unbeaten in two but have won just one of their last six. On the road, the Eagles have taken just four points this season with three of these surprisingly coming at the Etihad.
Watford vs Crystal Palace Predictions
The last five Watford games have seen both teams score and gone over 2.5 goals producing a total of 21. Palace have seen their last two and four of their last six go over 2.5 so backing overs here looks sensible.
Emmanuel Dennis is in good goalscoring form with four goals in his last five and will fancy his chances here. The Nigerian will face an Eagles defence that has not kept a clean sheet in their last six.
