Watford vs Tottenham Hotspur Premier League

The Premier League’s super Sunday clash brings you Watford at home to Tottenham Hotspur at Vicarage Road.

Before this weekend’s Premier League action begins, not many people would have put Watford in the top four with a 100% winning rate, but that is the case which their fans will be ecstatic about. However, they now face their toughest test, as Tottenham will be buoyed by their emphatic 3-0 at Old Trafford on Monday night.

Home Team: Watford

watford fc betting.footballWatford manager Javi Gracia would have had questions asked of him this summer, as Watford managed to decline a lot in the final quarter of their campaign last season.

After beating West Brom at home 1-0 on March 3rd, Watford found themselves in 9th place, and Premier League status secured for another season. However, following that, they only won one out their last nine, and finished in a disappointing 14th place. They lost their key player in Richarlison for big money, but managed to only use some of that money as they purchased Gerard Deulofeu from Barcelona as a direct replacement.

Three games in though, and all expectations from any pundit, external football fans or even Watford’s home fans would not have anticipated to win all three games. They have defeated Brighton and Crystal Palace at home, and won comprehensively at Burnley, scoring seven goals and only conceding two. The team will be high on confidence when entertaining Spurs this Sunday.

Away Team: Tottenham Hotspur

Mauricio Pochettino didn’t purchase any players this summer, but more importantly, didn’t sell any of their players meaning their squad is still together and maturing more.

Their new stadium is not going to be ready until October, but that disruption hasn’t affected their performances at all. Their most recent match saw them win 3-0 at Old Trafford which was only the 3rd time they have won against a ‘Top 6 club’ away from home in the last 4 seasons, so maybe that was just the statement they needed to show everyone they are more than capable of challenging for the Premier League title, and advancing to the latter stages of the Champions League.

Head to Head

Tottenham have been superior to Watford for many decades now, as they have beaten Watford 29 times in their history, compared to Watford’s 7 victories. If that isn’t damaging enough, the last time Watford beat Tottenham at home in the league was way back in 1987.

In recent matches, since Watford’s promotion to the Premier League in 2015, the sides have faced each other six times, with Tottenham winning 5 times, including a few emphatic victories, and drawing on the other occasion. In fact, this respective fixture last season was that occasion, as it was a 1-1 draw, so it proves that Watford are itching close to get an upset and defeat their rivals from North London.

Watford vs Tottenham Betting Tips and Predictions

Watford have a 17/4 chance to get their infamous victory on Sunday that will be 21 years in the making. Spurs are strong favourites at 8/13 to get a fourth successive away victory, with 3/1 the odds you’ll get for a draw. Tottenham have scored 8 goals in their first three games, and it’s hard to imagine that Watford will keep them out.

However, Watford who will be bouncing after recent displays will expect to trouble Tottenham for large parts of the match. We all know that goals change games, and the first one here will be a deciding factor for how this match pans out. If it is Tottenham, and I think it will be, then it will set up them to get a comfortable victory so a 3-1 Spurs win (11/1) would be my tip. If you want to boost your winnings significantly, then choose the first goal scorer to be Kane, and for it to finish 3-1, which will be at odds around 200/1.

Finally, let’s hope for some goals, and so for there to be more than 4.5 goals in the game, it’s at 7/2, but I would personally play it safe at over 3.5 goals (7/4).
