We’ve got some Friday night delight coming to you from the Championship this week, making that commute from the desk chair to the sofa feel all the more worth it.
Wayne Rooney’s Rams has a real ring to it, and he’s got his players all singing from the same hymn sheet since taking the reins at Pride Park.
But Watford ain’t no pushovers. The Hornets are hoping to run down the contract on their Championship rental by May, with a return to the Premier League the number one priority.
So, how do we see this one playing out on Friday night? Check out our top Odds Picks and Long Shot from Vicarage Road.

Our Top Odds Pick – Watford v Derby draw – 9/4 with Betfair
With both teams enjoying a solid run of form, going right down the middle for a draw feels the value bet.
Derby have won five of their last six after a torrid start to the season, with Watford winning four of their last five on home soil.
Derby’s biggest issue all season has been scoring, so Rooney may be tempted to shut-up shop and escape with a well-earned point.
Our Long Shot – 0-0 draw correct score – 6/1 with bet365
Okay, we’re sorry.
Backing a 0-0 feels wrong, doesn’t it.
We’re not trying to jinx this Friday night feast in the slightest, but with Watford’s defence pretty reliable at home and Derby taking three of their last five wins by a scoreline of 1-0, this one feels like a little bit of a stalemate.
The good news is that your bet will already be a winner as the whistle blows! But you’ll have to sit through 90 minutes of lifeless action if it is to stay that way…
You’re still thinking about the bad news, aren’t you.
