James CookeTottenham vs Watford, Saturday October 19th, 15:00, New Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. This is the perfect opportunity for Spurs to bounce back from their recent poor form against a Watford side that perhaps wouldn’t pose as big a threat as they would have earlier in the season.
This is the perfect opportunity for Spurs to bounce back from their recent poor form against a Watford side that perhaps wouldn’t pose as big a threat as they would have earlier in the season.
Spurs come into this off the back of a poor result against Brighton and a drubbing against Bayern Munich, so this provides this perfect chance to get a three point win on the board.
Watford are coming into this after a poor run of games, with no win at all so far this Premier League season, only managing three draws so far.
Spurs did manage to win their first game of the season against Aston Villa, but have only picked up one win in all competitions in the past five games.
Watford’s only three points of the season have come at home to Sheffield United and Arsenal, while travelling to Newcastle and grabbing a point from Steve Bruce’s side.
The home side will still be favourites for this game and favourites to pick up the win despite their recent poor form, so expect them to be low in odds.
Tottenham to win is a good bet to go with but given their recent defensive struggles, you should keep an eye out for a Watford goal or side with a both teams to score bet. Tottenham winning 2-1 is a possibility.
Spurs are favourites for this clash so a home win carries hardly any risk while it is also wouldn’t be a surprise if both teams will score. Watford will be looking to avoid a result like the one they had at Man City a few weeks ago will be intent on giving their travelling fans a moment to savour and this is among the best online betting odds for this round of action.888sport have it as 9/5 when combined with the Spurs win.
Dele hasn’t been in the best of form and hasn’t looked entirely fit since the start of the season but if Mauricio Pochettino wants to reintegrate him into the squad, then this could be the perfect game for him to get on the scoresheet, with this bet rated at 13/2 by 888sport.
