Tottenham vs Watford Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions

goal.com, 16 October 2019, 16:45
Last season's Champions League runners-up have enjoyed a torrid time of late but we are backing them to overcome the Premier League's basement club

Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham side host the Premier League's bottom club Watford this weekend with Quique Sanchez Flores' men making the short trip to north London.

Getting back to winning ways will be of paramount importance to Spurs who suffered a horrendous few days before the international break losing 7-2 to Bayern Munich in the Champions League before going down 3-0 at Brighton.

Latest odds

The Hornets remain the only side in the English top flight yet to win a league game and Sportsbet offer them at 7.00.

Only leaders Liverpool have won more games at home than Spurs this season and the north Londoners can be backed at 1.40 to record their fourth triumph this term. The draw is available at 5.00.

Tottenham vs Watford Team News

The hosts are without goalkeeper Hugo Lloris who picked up a serious injury at Brighton last time out. Michel Vorm re-joined the club in midweek to provide cover between the sticks, but it is Argentine stopper Paulo Gazzaniga who is likely to start this weekend.

Meanwhile, injured pair Giovanni Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon are nearing a return but neither is likely to feature.

The visitors are hopeful captain Troy Deeney is nearing a comeback from a knee injury that has kept him sidelined since August, although it remains to be seen whether he will be available for this weekend's game.

Tottenham vs Watford Preview

Watford's position at the bottom of the table is down in large part to the side's inability to find the back of the next. Of course, defensively the Hornets have struggled as well, as their 8-0 capitualtion at Manchester City underlined a few weeks ago, but four goals scored in eight matches is a particularly worrying statistic.

Watford's only goal away from home this term came in a 1-1 draw at Newcastle, with the team losing their three other away games to nil.

Backing Spurs to keep a clean sheet therefore looks appealing despite their own defensive problems in recent weeks, and Pochettino's men have kept clean sheets in three of their last four home league games with Watford.

Tips and predictions

Spurs to win to nil is available at 2.63 which looks like a healthy price, given the visitors' less than impressive away record. This selection has been a regular winner on Watford's recent visits to north London and has a great chance of proving profitable once more.
