Watford look a steal
With a strong home record, Watford head our tipster Craig Chisnall's picks for this weekend's action in the Sky Bet Football League.

They came within touching distance of the Premier League last term - and all the signs are pointing to another promotion charge from Watford.
After just missing out on the a place in the top two to Cardiff and Hull and then losing to Crystal Palace in the play-offs, the Hornets have shown few signs of a hangover.
They've barely missed star striker Matej Vydra, now on loan at West Brom, and their various new recruits from across Europe have settled brilliantly in Hertfordshire.
Gianfranco Zola's men are now easing the load on striker Troy Deeney in front of goal and the arrival of Lewis McGugan from Nottingham Forest is proving to be the shrewd signing many thought it would be.
Being a Nottingham boy he'd love nothing more than a goal against this weekend's opponents Derby.
For a team yet to be beaten at home (they've also scored in every game at Vicarage Road) I can't believe they are available at evens. Get on that while you can to make it five wins in six.
In League One, Leyton Orient continue to lead the way and their come-from-behind win over MK Dons last weekend was another one in the eye to the critics who believe their stunning start is just a flash in the pan.
Despite going a goal down to Patrick Bamford's strike - I hope you were on the 6/4 for him to score at anytime - they hit back to deserve the 2-1 win, their ninth success in 11 games.
And I'm going back to a player we've already had joy with this season in Dean Cox to score at anytime in Orient's trip to Tranmere.
The tricky midfielder has had to remain in the background this term with the likes of Kevin Lisbie and Moses Odubajo taking centre stage but he is a real threat at this level.
He came up trumps at 12/5 to score at anytime against Notts County a month ago, this time he's 7/2 to repeat the trick with Sky Bet.
That looks big. Orient, the division's top scorers, are averaging almost 2.5 goals a game, while in this game their attack faces one of the leakiest defences - only Crewe have shipped more goals than Tranmere.
Orient's form suggests they should win this, possibly by a good margin, which makes Cox worth a punt.
I've gone for an even bigger price in League Two as I like the look of the 9/2 about high-flying Fleetwood to win at Southend with both teams scoring on Friday night.
That Graham Alexander's side are second is down to their fine away form - they already have four wins on the road this season and have lost just once.
The former Preston and Burnley defender has tinkered with his system away from Highbury with a successful 4-5-1 formation and it's gone brilliantly so far.
Their draw with leaders Chesterfield last week came up at a big 5-2 but they will be desperate to get back to winning ways and crank up the pressure on the Spireites ahead of Saturday's fixtures.
This massive price is well worthy of consideration to get our weekend off to a flyer.
