Tottenham vs. Watford: Punters eye big price on away win



It looks set to be a nervy affair as bottom-of-the-table Watford travel to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Both clubs are seemingly undergoing separate but equally worrying issues.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino finds himself under intense pressure. A 7-2 hammering at home to Bayern Munich in the Champions League shattered confidence within the ranks.

This was then worsened after losing 3-0 at Brighton in an abject display just four days later.

Watford meanwhile managed to pick up just their third point of the season with a goalless draw against newly-promoted Sheffield United. This ensured they remain rock bottom of the Premier League.

They remain without a single league victory to their name this season. spokeman Spencer James commented:

Nothing would surprise me about Spurs these days but surely they won’t slip up at bottom club Watford? Mauricio Pochettino and his side desperately need to rebuild confidence with a resounding win which I think they’ll get. But it could turn into a nervy, cagey affair.

Pochettino will, however, perhaps view this fixture as the perfect opportunity to bounce back. They must regain the form that saw them secure a top four finish and Champions League runner-up spot last season. They are unsurprisingly 2/5 to take all three points.

Newcastle and Brighton victories over Spurs this season may give Watford a slight confidence boost.

But they find themselves 13/2 to pick up a much-needed win, with a draw coming in at 4/1.

With just four goals from their eight league games, Watford are 11/8 to draw another blank in front of the net.

The Hornets also missed all three of their big chances against Sheffield United. They now have the worst big chance conversion rate in the league this season.

They are now suffering their longest run without a win at the beginning of a league campaign since 2006/07. And with 20 goals conceded in their eight games, Spurs have been backed at 8/5 to see out the game as winners along with a clean sheet.

However, problems for Pochettino’s side have been mounting both on and off the pitch. The Argentinian and several of his key players having been linked with a move away from north London in recent months.

On the pitch, and they have now lost 17 games in all competitions this calendar year. Worryingly, this is more than any other top-flight team.

Moreover, with Spurs keeping just one clean sheet in the league this season, Watford may just fancy their chances. The visitors are 8/1 to win a game involving fewer than 3.5 goals in what looks set to be a low-scoring affair.

This fixture last season saw Spurs come from behind to win the match 2-1, scoring two goals in the last ten minutes. It’s 15/2 for a repeat scoreline, with odds of 5/1 for Tottenham to once again turn the result around.
