I'm not a huge fan of that strategy because overwatch shots tend to miss, not just because of the accuracy penalty but also because they are often fired from awkward angles through cover. You might get lucky and catch a bunch of guys wide out in the open, or you might waste all your overwatch shots trying to shoot someones foot through a window, at which point you will face a devastating counterattack.

When you start throwing in skills that knock out the overwatch aim penalty and give extra shots, it can get pretty devastating for the visiting team!
