Massive game at the foot of the Championship, hosts lie just outside the drop zone, with a game in hand over most of their rivals, Argyle are in deep trouble, four points from safety and with an inferior goal difference to the two teams, including Watford, they are looking to catch.
Dire home form has got them in such a mess, on the road they have drawn just twice, but won six, two more than Nottingham Forest and the same number as Leicester City, who are both looking to make the promised land of the EPL via the playoffs. Therefore, they will arrive with a degree of confidence and can hardly be expected to sit back, they won't, they will go all out for the three points.
You could argue that the home side might settle for a point, but I do not think it will be that type of game and could get very stretched. The Hornets went all out for the win and played well against EPL bound WBA on Monday, so why look for less today. Anyway, despite having four games left after today, this is Watford's penultimate game at Vicarage Road and certainly the "easier" of the remaining points on offer. In form and "local" rivals Reading are the last team to visit this season, which will be just as competitive and against a more talented opponent, on the road, Watford have not won for six months ( !), so in many ways a win today is equally important to the hosts.

Although Plymouth struggle to score and no side has created fewer chances this season, I do think that there will be goals in this game, but when the dust has settled, I expect Watford to collect the points and go a long way towards securing their Championship status. They are set to be without two suspended players, which is not ideal, but at this stage of the season application is more important and gritty scottish boss Malky Mackay will have his team flying out of the dressing room with fire in their bellies.
Waford -0.5 goal 2.23 asian line.

Good Luck.
