Tottenham Hotspur vs Watford Predictions, Betting Tips and Match Previews
England Premier League | Tottenham Hotspur Stadium | 19th October 2019 15:00
Tottenham should return to winning ways as they host Watford at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Spurs are usually solid at home and given Watford’s woeful start to the season, a handicap bet looks a viable option.
Spurs are coming off a shock 3-0 defeat at Brighton in their last Premier League fixture. It was an uncharacteristically poor performance from Spurs who were second best for much of the contest.
Things have not been great for Spurs in recent weeks, but they will be glad to return to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium where they have won three of their last four matches. heir good form has them at a minimal 1.40 to win on Saturday. Harry Kane has five goals this season and I am backing the striker to score in a home win at 1.80.
Paolo Gazzaniga should continue in place of goalkeeper Hugo Lloris who is ruled out with a dislocated elbow. Serge Aurier is also set to return after serving a suspension last time out while Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min should start in attack.
Watford’s abysmal start to the season continued last time out as they were held to a 0-0 draw by newly promoted Sheffield United. They were once again poor in attack and struggled to break down the visitors.
The Hornets are still seeking their first win of the campaign and are currently bottom of the table. Quique Sanchez Flores’ men have lost five of their eight matches this season, scoring just one goal and conceding 20.
Their poor form means they are not favoured to win on Saturday at odds of 7.00 while a draw is set at odds of 4.75.
Harry Kane is the top scorer for Tottenham otspur this season and has scored four goals in seven previous matches against Watford. The striker will be confident of getting past a poor Watford defence and adding to his tally.
Watford have had plenty of problems in attack this season with Andre Gray the only forward player to register a goal this season. With Danny Welbeck and Gerard Deulofeu yet to find the net this term, the visitors should struggle at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
PREDICTION : TOTTENHAM 3-1
ACCUMULATOR TIP : OVER 2.5 FT GOALS
