Watford v Tottenham Predictions, Betting Tips and Previews
November 30, 2017
Vicarage Road - Premier League
Watford welcome Tottenham to Vicarage Road on Saturday, with the Hornets hoping to take advantage of their visitors' poor recent form.
Tottenham beat, and scored four in both games against Watford last season, and Mauricio Pochettino's side have won all seven of their last games against Watford in all competitions.
Watford's last win against Spurs came back in a 3-2 League Cup win in 1994.
Toby Alderweireld is still out of action for Tottenham with a hamstring injury, and he joins Victor Wanyama in being out of action until the new year. Midfielder Harry Winks could return to the team after recovering from a bout of flu.
Watford boss Marco Silva has a much greater injury list ahead of Saturday's game, with Will Hughes, Isaac Success, Nathaniel Chalobah, Younes Kaboul and Craig Cathcart all still some way from a first team return.
The news is more positive for defender Miguel Britos, who should be fit in time after recovering from a knee problem.
Watford v Tottenham Preview and Predictions
Both sides have suffered from inconsistency in recent weeks, with Watford wining winning against West Ham and Newcastle and losing to Everton and Manchester United in their last four Premier League games.
Tottenham have not won in their last three Premier League games, losing to Leicester City and Arsenal, and drawing with West Brom, and head into this game under some pressure.
In the past this game would have looked to be a banker for Spurs, but Silva has excelled with Watford so far this season, and they will be tough to crack. With that in mind, a draw looks to be a relatively low risk option in this one, 14/5.
Both sides have goals in their ranks, scoring four and nine for Tottenham and Watford respectively in their last four games, and there should be plenty of goal action in this one - over 2.5 goals is priced at 4/6.
Both teams to score at 4/6
Neither side has looked great in defence in recent games, and give the attacking talents on display, both teams will be looking to go for it - even if that is at the expense of their efforts to keep a clean sheet.
Richarlinson to score anytime at 9/4
Brazilian forward Richarlinson has been the leading light for Silva's Watford this season, scoring five goals so far in his debut Premier League season, and he will be a real threat to the Tottenham back line - particularly in the absence of Alderweireld.
