This season’s Championship is hotting up to be one of the most competitive in recent years, just 18 points separate the teams in the play-off spots from the teams in the dreaded relegation zone.
Momentum is everything in the Championship, and after a 6-0 spanking of Bristol City at the weekend, Watford will be going all out for another win as they take on Preston.
Preston are still in the play-off mix themselves so it’s set to be a juicy battle at Deepdale on Tuesday night.
Read on to see our top Odds Picks for the match including a 17/2 correct score shout.

Our Top Odds Pick – Watford to win – 11/10 at BetVictor
Watford did a demolition job on Bristol City at the weekend and hit them for six – they’ll be desperate to back up that win with another three points against Preston.
The Hornets have lost just once in their last seven – including four wins – as they hunt down an automatic promotion spot at the top of the Championship.
They face a Preston side who have picked up just one point from their last three matches at Deepdale and who have lost eight of their 14 home games so far this season.
Watford hammered them 4-1 in the reverse fixture and at odds-against, we think they’re a cracking bet to do the double on them on Tuesday.
Our Long Shot – Watford to win 2-1 – 17/2 at bet365
Watford may have hammered in six against Bristol City but on the road, they’re a bit shot-shy – bagging only seven goals on their Championships travels so far.
With confidence brimming though, we’re expecting them to edge out Preston and are taking a punt on the 2-1 correct score at some nice odds.
