Watford v Spurs – Premier League Betting Guide: 2nd Sept 2018

Swansea v Spurs – FA Cup Betting Guide: 17th March 2018

Both Tottenham and Watford will head into this game full of confidence after wins last weekend – Watford beat Palace 2-1, while Spurs recorded a famous 0-3 away win at Man Utd.

The two sides are now also 3-from-3 and sit joint top of the Premier League on 9 points so have made cracking starts to the season. Despite having home advantage Watford are the clear outsiders here at 5.25 in the match betting, with the draw 4.00 and Spurs on offer at 1.61.

However, did you know that Spurs have NEVER lost to Watford in the Premier League (10 games), while the Hornets last beat the North London side in the league in 1987.
Tottenham head into the game having won 5 of their last 6 vs Watford, while the Hornets have also scored just one goal in their last three vs Spurs – everything suggests maximum points for the visitors here.

We did we a RED card in this fixture last year (Spurs), so there might be some boil over from that – in fact, we’ve seen two sending offs in the last three head-to-heads (1 each).
Spurs midfielder – Dele Alli – is their main man when facing Watford – he’s netted four times in the last four clashes.

Four of the last 7 head-to-heads went OVER 2.5 GOALS so this might tempt punters in at 1.70, while both teams have also scored in 4 of the last 7 – this is on offer at a slightly better 1.75.

However, the call here is to keep things simple. Spurs are scoring well during this early part of the season and it will be a shock if they aren’t netting at least a few here. Therefore, we’re going to keep things simple here and just side with a Spurs win at 1.67 – something they do more often than not when facing Watford.

BEST BET: SPURS TO WIN @1.67
