Spurs and PSV are both looking for their first points of the group stage campaign in the Champions League this season. This is a game which neither can afford to lose therefore with Barcelona and Inter in full command of things ahead of them. Can Spurs haul themselves back into contention with a solid three points on the road? Read our PSV v Tottenham betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 21st, 2018 at 11:40 p.m.)
There have been no points for PSV yet in the group after losing heavily at Barcelona and then not being able to hold a lead against Inter on match day two. It means that the Dutch club are without a win in their last ten Champions League games with a D4 L6 record in that sequence. PSV did win their last home match against an English side, beating Manchester United in the 2015/16 group stage.
Their overall home form against English opposition is W6 D5 L5. Over 2.5 goals is at 4/6 odds* (betting odds taken on October 22nd, 2018 at 12:13 pm) and each of PSV Eindhoven’s last four Champions League games have gone over the goal line. Their current form is pretty handy with five wins in their last six games in all competition. The only defeats this season they have suffered have been in the Champions League.
They also have a clean sheet in all but one of their last six. However for PSV v Tottenham predictions, both teams to score looks a more probable option here at 8/13 odds* (betting odds taken on October 22nd, 2018 at 12:13 pm). Each of the last three defeats on home soil that PSV have suffered have been by just the goal margin only.
There have only been two previous meetings between these two
Those were in the 2008 UEFA Cup
Both sides collected a 1-0 away win in the meetings
Like Eindhoven, Spurs are facing an uphill struggle to get out of the group. They have lost 2-1 against Inter and lost 4-2 against Barcelona so far. Last season the Lilywhites managed to win two of their three away games and were undefeated in their four road games (W2 D2) before bowing out. Spurs have only suffered two defeats in their last eight away games in Europe.
The Premier League side are in decent form at the moment with a W4 D1 L1 record in their last six played in all competitions. Three of their five away wins in all competitions have been by a one-goal margin. Spurs to win by one goal margin is at 11/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 22nd, 2018 at 12:13 pm). Out in the Netherlands, Spurs have a very positive W5 D1 L1 record and have avoided defeat in their last three trips there.
Their last was a 3-3 draw against Twente in the 2010/11 group stage. A Spurs 2-1 correct score is a short price at 15/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 22nd, 2018 at 12:13 pm) and that’s a bit of value as Spurs have struggled for a clean sheet this term. Star striker Harry Kane got his opening goal of the campaign against Barcelona on match day two.
Tottenham should shade things out in the Netherlands. They need to throw everything at this one now. PSV are not going to make things too easy for them at the end of the day but Spurs have the upper hand in terms of individual quality. Away win.

This should be an entertaining London derby to look forward too. West Ham will be looking for a big three points in this one as they face up to the Lilywhites. That would give them a fantastic lift. Buy Spurs return after the international break having put together a strong three-match winning streak. Read our West Ham v Tottenham betting tips for more.
West Ham 10/3
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 15th, 2018 at 7:52 p.m.)
The Hammers had their little positive spurt of form snapped with a 1-0 defeat out at Brighton just before the international break. That leaves them W2 D1 L1 in their last four league games. That, in turn, was after losing their opening four games of the season. Their home form reads just W1 D1 L2 for the season, but are undefeated in their last two on home soil.
They picked up a draw against Chelsea and then banked that big 3-1 success over Manchester United. So they have held their own against some of the top sides at home this season. All of West Ham’s home games this season (including this one) have been against sides currently in the top half of the table.
Defensively they have only the one clean sheet this season so are going to be at risk. For our West Ham v Tottenham betting tips were are looking at both teams to score at 8/13 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:14 pm).
Recent games between these two have provided plenty of goals. Five of West Ham’s eight league games this season have made it above the goal line as well. They have won two of their last three games at home against Spurs and this would be a massive three points for them.
Spurs have put together a three-match winning streak, beating Brighton, Huddersfield and Cardiff. There are naturally going to be stiffer tests to come for them. Starting with this one and they won’t want to lose momentum in this London derby because next up for them comes Manchester City.
Tottenham have produced well on the road, winning four of their five away games. Their only blip was a 2-1 loss at Watford at the start of September. Over 2.5 goals is at 4/6 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:14 pm).
That appeals for West Ham v Tottenham betting tips because Spurs have scored at least two goals in all but one of their away games this season. They have found the back of the net in all eight of their league games this season. 75% of Tottenham’s league games this season have gone over 2.5 goals.
Spurs have averaged exactly two goals per away game this season, while they have taken a clean sheet in 40% of them. They have had some tight battles with West Ham recently though. Harry Kane is the 5/2 first goalscorer favourite* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:14 pm).
Tottenham got four points from their meetings with West Ham last season but they weren’t easy points. There was a 1-1 home draw for them after edging a tight away scrap 3-2. In the last four league meetings in this London derby, Spurs are W2 D1 L1 and they have lost two for their last three away trips to West Ham, both 1-0 losses. Five of the last eight games between them in all competitions have gone over 2.5 goals.
The draw may not have some appeal in the game as West Ham have a good bit of home form behind them. They may well have enough in them to grind out a point and make life very difficult for the Lilywhites. Draw.

Tottenham have put back to back league wins on the board to just about hold on to a top-four place heading in the next round of league action. They will be heavily backed no doubt as well as they play host to Cardiff. The Bluebirds are having some big issues dealing with life in the top flight as they are still in search of their first win. Read our Tottenham v Cardiff betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 2nd, 2018 at 8:23 p.m.)
Thanks to back to back wins over Brighton and Huddersfield (both away from home) Spurs have settled down a bit. They have improved their form to W5 L2 from their seven league games this season. The Lilywhites have netted at least two goals in all but one of their league games this season and they will be expected to be pretty comfortable on home soil against Cardiff on the weekend. A Tottenham 2-0 correct score looks a strong option at 7/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 3:03 pm).
Spurs did have European action in midweek so we can look for just a nice comfortable win for them in this one. Tottenham to win to nil is tremendous value at 21/20 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 3:03 pm). Harry Kane has come up with three goals in his last two games and is heading up the First and Anytime goalscorer markets. This will only be their third league home game of the season so there’s very little to go on for them at home. They have averaged exactly two goals in their two home games so far. Their 2-0 win out at Huddersfield last weekend returned just their second clean sheet of the season.
The Bluebirds are struggling pretty badly at the moment. Even when they are scoring they are still not able to get points on the board. They are stuck on just two points from 0-0 draws against Newcastle and Huddersfield early in the season and now the Welsh club are on a four-match losing streak. In that sequence of four games, they have conceded a total of thirteen goals as well. They lost 2-1 at home against Burnley last weekend and there doesn’t appear to be an immediate solution to their problems.
Away from home they are D1 L2 and suffered a big loss at Chelsea in their last away game. On their two trips to London this season in the top flight they have shipped a total of seven goals. Cardiff have produced just the one away goals this season. Looking at the goals which they have conceded ten of them have either been in the final fifteen minutes of the first half of the final fifteen minutes of the second half during games. So those are certainly the periods where they are most vulnerable. This could be another long afternoon for them and both teams not to score is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 3:03 pm).
Spurs won both games against Cardiff in the 2013/14 Premier League season 1-0 and they are undefeated in their last seven against them in all competitions. Spurs actually haven’t conceded a single goal in any of their last five games against Cardiff.
Tottenham should be strong enough to see off a Cardiff side who are leaking a lot of goals and not threatening too much going forward. We can only see a routine home win cropping up in our Spurs v Cardiff betting tips and a Tottenham to win to nil bet appeals.
3rd October 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Spurs were sunk late in their opening game of this season’s Champions League out at Inter Milan. So they can’t afford another slip up in midweek when they play host to Barcelona. Tottenham need to step up to the plate here. They could be catching the Spaniards at the right time too as the La Liga champions have failed to win any of their last three. Read our predictions for the Tottenham v Barcelona fixture.
Spurs picked themselves up from their little slip of three straight defeats to go W2 D1 in their last three games in all competitions. An EFL Cup penalty shootout win over Watford in midweek was sandwiched between 2-0 Premier League wins at Brighton and Huddersfield. So not the toughest run of matches. Against Inter on matchday one, Spurs had taken control with Christian Eriksen giving them the lead in the second half at the San Siro. But they shipped two goals in the last five minutes of the game to suffer a very heavy blow to their ambitions.
Tottenham have been far from rock solid this season defensively so we have to look at both teams to score at 1/2 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 9:39 pm). Last season they produced a W5 D1 record in their six group stage games, beating Real Madrid to top spot. So already they are down on last season’s output. This is a tough position now too as they can’t afford a loss. Spurs have won three of their last four home games in Europe (L1) but only have the one clean sheet in those games. Spurs have taken just two clean sheets in their last ten games in Europe. In the over/under market, under 3.5 goals is at 8/13 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 9:39 pm).
Barcelona have seen their form slip away a bit as they have failed to get a win in any of their last three. Those have all been league games so their slump in form came after such a strong and dominant start. Barcelona won their opening six games in all competitions. Barcelona have hit the back of the net in all of their games played this season, so are still likely to get on the scoresheet given their class. In the bet365 correct score market a Barcelona 2-1 is at 15/2 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 9:39 pm) and a very appealing option for Tottenham v Barcelona betting tips.
Just because Barcelona have been having their dip in form but are the favourites, it may still be worth backing them but not by a big margin. A Barcelona to win by a one-goal margin is at 3/1 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 9:39 pm). They opened their European campaign this season with a strong 4-0 home win over PSV Eindhoven and that was with ten men as well. Lionel Messi fired off a hat trick in that fixture and away this season across all competitions Barcelona are W2 L1. The loss in that sequence happened against La Liga bottom side Leganes last week.
This will only be the third competitive game between the two sides, the previous ones happening in the 1982 European Cup Winners Cup. There was a 1-1 draw in London before Barcelona took a 1-0 win back on home soil. That’s all she wrote for Spurs v Barca history.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 29th, 2018 at 11.35 p.m.)
Tottenham need a big European night at home, but we are going to stick with the favourites in this one. Barcelona have had some bad slips over the last week or so, but that makes them all the more valuable to pick up a win in this one. They can find the gaps in the Spurs defence that are there. Away win & both teams to score.

The Terriers are rooted to the foot of the table having picked up just the two points. They are struggling badly and they may not get a respite in this one. Tottenham showed a bit of character to snap a losing streak in picking up an away win at Brighton last weekend. Read our Huddersfield v Tottenham betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 24th, 2018 at 11:52 p.m.)
The Terriers have been having a rough time of things this season with just the two points on the board so far. They have lost their last two and the goals have been really hard to come by for them. They have scored just the three goals all season in their six games. Their home form reads D1 L2 and they have yet to hit the back of the net on home soil. A Tottenham to win to nil option is at 6/5 odds* (betting odds taken on September 25th, 2018 at 5:10 pm).
That’s even with the lack of clean sheets that Spurs have picked up. They are still value to get one on the weekend. The Terriers have won just two of their last thirteen league home games now, losing seven of those. They have failed to score in seven of their last eight Premier League home fixtures as well. Both teams not to score is at 3/4 odds* (betting odds taken on September 25th, 2018 at 5:10 pm) and we are taking that in our Huddersfield v Tottenham betting tips.
Spurs collected a win out at Brighton last weekend and that was a much-needed success from them as well because they have had lost their previous two league games. Spurs have only the one clean sheet to their name this season which is surprising from them really. They almost got one against Brighton last weekend, conceding in the 90th minute of the game. Spurs are W3 L1 on their travels this season, the loss happening at Watford at the start of September. They have scored in each and every league game played this season.
In the bet365 correct score market, a Tottenham 1-0 option is at 11/2 odds or you could push to 6/1 for a 2-0* (betting odds taken on September 25th, 2018 at 5:10 pm). Harry Kane has not been at his sharpest this season and even he has admitted that. But he still clearly leads the goalscorer markets for the match. Spurs have not been behind at halftime this season away from home and a Tottenham/Tottenham half-time/ full-time bet may have plenty of appeal in the game with the Terrors struggling so badly.
Tottenham recorded back to back wins to nil over Huddersfield last weekend, scoring six goals in total. They bagged a 4-0 win in this corresponding fixture from the last term. That was the first meeting between them since a 1973 League Cup tie so there is little recent history between them.
We are going to go with the away win to nil for our Huddersfield Tottenham predictions. The Terriers just look capable of holding out at the moment against a good top six side. They are leaking goals and Tottenham can expose that.

Spurs eased a bit of pressure off themselves with a win out at Brighton in what was a tricky
game for them the weekend in the Premier League. They get back to home soil in midweek to face up against Watford in this all-Premier League third round EFL Cup tie. Read our Tottenham v Watford betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 23rd, 2018 at 10:34 p.m.)
Spurs snapped a three-match losing streak with a win out at Brighton on the weekend. They were helped on their way via a Harry Kane penalty kick in the first half, but couldn’t close out on the clean sheet, conceding in the 90th minute. That is just the one clean sheet for Spurs all season in all competitions. Five of their seven games this season have been settled by a 2-1 scoreline (W2 L3) and up in the correct score market for this a Spurs 2-1 is at 13/2 and a Watford 2-1 is at 28/1* (betting odds taken from September 23rd, 2018 at 10:43 pm). Spurs have looked a little jaded at times already this season and they are likely to take this opportunity to rest their regular players. This is just their third home game of the season and are W1 L1 from their previous two.
Watford have enjoyed a positive start to the season with a W5 D1 L1 record across all competitions. In the last round of the FA Cup they went out to face Championship side Reading and collected a 2-0 win there. That is just one of two clean sheets for them this season. We fully expect both teams to score at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken from September 23rd, 2018 at 10:43 pm). Watford are unbeaten away from Vicarage Road this season with a W2 D1 record and they have averaged two goals per game across the road games. We are going to take a look over 2.5 goals for our Tottenham v Watford betting tips which is at 1/2 odds* (betting odds taken from September 23rd, 2018 at 10:43 pm). Not the easiest of ties, but they have nothing to lose and will be taking on an understrength Spurs side.
We are going with Tottenham to grind out a home win in what is likely to be a tight contest. Spurs have to rest some key players in this one and so we are expecting the score to be kept down. Spurs to win & under 2.5 goals appeals.

The Seagulls have been scrapping out points lately and they may well fancy their chances of extending their unbeaten home form for the season. They have already beaten Manchester United at the Amex this term. Spurs had extra work in the Champions League in midweek and still look to be a bit short of their best. That could make this trip to the south coast tricky. Read our Brighton v Tottenham betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 19th, 2018 at 7:34 p.m.)
It has not been a bad return from Brighton so far this season with a W1 D2 L2 record on the board. The two defeats that they have suffered were both out on the road and they have remained undefeated on home soil with a W1 D1 record. There was that famous win over Manchester United and then a 2-2 draw with Fulham. So surprisingly the Seagulls have rattled off five goals in two home games. Still, the sensible option in this one is to look under 2.5 goals at 21/20 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on September 19th, 2018 at 7:34 p.m.).
This is a bit of concern over the defence of the Seagulls as they have conceded at least two goals in six of their last seven matches. Still, going back to their home from they are undefeated in their last five at the Amex in the Premier League. Even though they are going off as underdogs there does look some pretty decent value on a Brighton-Draw Double Chance at 23/20 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on September 19th, 2018 at 7:34 p.m.). They may well be able to hold their own.
The Lilywhites conceded two late goals in midweek to suffer a 2-1 loss at Inter in their opening Champions League fixture of the season. That was a blow for them on top for their current league form. They have lost their last two top-flight games by a 2-1 scoreline, going down against Watford and then Liverpool. They didn’t play very well in either of those and they are starting to look a bit headed and not even Harry Kane looks quite right at the moment. But does boss Mauricio Pochettino dare risk resting him? Kane is still the 13/5 first goalscorer favourite* (Betting Odds were taken on September 19th, 2018 at 7:34 p.m.).
Away from home, this season Tottenham are W2 L1 with their wins coming at Newcastle and Manchester United before their loss at Watford. That is just the one clean sheet that the Lilywhites have earned this season which is another surprise about them this season. In the correct score market the 1-1 draw is at 7/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on September 19th, 2018 at 7:34 p.m.). It is just not all coming together for Spurs at the moment. They could get Lucas Moura back as well as Kieran Trippier and Toby Alderweireld who missed the game against Inter.
The Seagulls actually collected a point at home against Spurs last season after having lost at Wembley. That was their only previous Premier League meetings. It was their first league meetings since the 1982/83 old English Division one. Across all competitions, Spurs have won three of the last four meetings (D1).
The draw has plenty of appeal for our Brighton v Tottenham betting tips. The Seagulls have shown some strengths on home soil and things are not quite clicking for Brighton. That can only lead us to the draw in the match outright.
19th September 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
This should be another interesting meeting between the two, as they have produced some crackers in the past. Inter Milan have been tipped to make a run at the Serie A title this season, but they haven’t started all that well. But Spurs have just started to struggle as well so this should be a pretty even clash. Read our Inter v Tottenham betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.)
It has not been the successful season for Inter that it was expected to have been. They were tipped to be a strong force this season in Serie A but that hasn’t panned out as they only produced a W1 D1 L2 record. On home soil they have only gone D1 L2, suffering a home loss against Parma there on the weekend. We are going to actually take a look under 2.5 goals at 3/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.) for the game because neither are particularly in good form. That is despite there being an average of over four goals per game in the previous meetings between these two.
Neither are looking that sharp at the moment. Inter Milan find themselves in the Champions League for the first time since the 2011/12 season where they made it through to the first knockout round. They have only won two of their last six home games (L4) in Europe so they aren’t in great form. The two wins in that sequence though were in their last two games and they were both 2-1 successes over Lille and then Marseille. Considering this group hosts Barcelona too it is going to be important to avoid defeat in this one.
In last season’s group, stage Spurs pulled off a big surprise to many in beating Real Madrid to top spot in their group with a W5 D1 record on the board. It was an impressive run of form from them in the group but can they reproduce that? This will be their fifth season of the UEFA Champions League now and their overall record including qualifying stands at W16 D7 L11. Their form has taken a dip though as they have lost their last two games, both 2-1 defeats against Watfor and then against Liverpool on the weekend. In both defeats, they looked really flat and not their usual clinical shelves. So this could be a tricky away game for them. Harry Kane is the 11/10 anytime goalscorer favorite* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.).
Tottenham’s away form in Europe last season was good and they played some great stuff. It doesn’t quite appear to be there for them at the moment and in the bet365 correct score market an Inter 1-0 option is at 7/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 15th, 2018 at 11:35 p.m.). That has big appeal in our Inter v Tottenham betting tips. Overall this season in all competitions Spurs have managed just the one clean sheet and they are going to be tested in this one at the San Siro, even if their opponents aren’t in great shape either.
There has been a couple of high scoring previous meetings between the pair of these. Their first coming together was in the 2010/11 Champions League with them both treading home wins, both of which produced at least four goals. Their next coming together was in the Europa League in some 2013 fixtures which again produced a home win in each. All four of the previous meetings have produced at least three goals.
Neither are in top form heading into this fixture which adds that extra dimension to it. Spurs played well in Europe last season but they aren’t quite on their game at the moment. Because of that, the draw has the most appeal for us in our Inter v Tottenham betting tips.
17th September 2018 / lee - Category: UEFA Champions League Betting
The Premier League returns with a bang on the weekend in a high profile clash between Spurs and Liverpool. The Reds have produced four straight wins to start the season and they lead the league. Spurs haven’t quite been able to keep pace as they were taken down by Watford before the international break. Read our Tottenham v Liverpool betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.)
It is a W3 L1 record that Spurs have produced so far this season in the Premier League, their winning streak being snapped against Watford before the international break. They played poorly in that game and perhaps highlighted an issue in that they struggle for a Plan B when their fluent football isn’t happening. This will only be Tottenham’s second game of the season in the league, their other one ended in a 3-1 success over Fulham. Harry Kane is the 7/2 first goalscorer favourite* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.).
Last season Spurs produced good form at Wembley with a W13 D4 L2 record and it looks as if they will be staying there for a while as there have been delays with their new home. Spurs will be waiting on late fitness tests for Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris and a couple of others. We are going over 2.5 goals with bet365 at 13/20 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.). Each of Tottenham’s last five league games have gone above the goal line. They have scored in each of their four league games this season, netting nine in total. They have managed just the one clean sheet though.
Tottenham’s defense hasn’t been perfect and if anyone can expose that, it will probably be Liverpool. The Reds have started strongly with four straight wins but as well as their flair we have seen them grind a bit and dig out wins without playing well. Actually, there has been more of than that the flair. Mo Salah has started the season in good scoring form, but it is Sadio Mane who has been the most impressive and he is 15/8 in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken from September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.) for this one. A win in what is their first game against another of the big six this season would really send a big statement.
That would put them six points clear of a title rival. So far Liverpool have won away at Crystal Palace and Leicester and they scored exactly two goals in both of those. A Liverpool 2-1 correct score market option is at 9/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.). In each of their last five games in the Premier League Liverpool have been winning at both half time and full time so that is a trend. The Reds have gone unbeaten in eleven of their last twelve games against Spurs in all competitions and their defense has been good, having conceded just one goal this term.
While Liverpool have been strong in their recent form against Spurs, it didn’t go their way last season. Tottenham banked four points from their two games against the Reds, powering their way to a 4-1 home win in the process. Liverpool have only lost one of their last 11 league games against the Lilywhites. Four of the last six meetings though have ended in a draw. Both teams have scored in all but one of the last six games between the two clubs in all competitions.
It is likely that Tottenham will be under pressure in this one. They churned out a really poor performance in their loss against Watford before the international break and their defense looked creaky. Liverpool have looked stronger in terms of defense this season and they could strike an important three points. The away win is our Tottenham v Liverpool prediction.
13th September 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Both teams have started the season with maximum points on the board after three games. Tottenham made a big statement last weekend with a resounding win at Old Trafford against Manchester United. As for Watford, they have been really bright and full of commitment, but this is their first real big test of the season. Read our Watford v Tottenham betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.)
Watford fans could only have been dreaming about this kind of start from their side. The Hornets have won three from three having taken down Brighton, Burnley and Crystal Palace. Granted there are going to be much stiffer challenges to come, like on this weekend for example.
The Hornets have scored two goals exactly in their two games and we can only take a look over 2.5 goals for the fixture at 7/10 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.). The goals have certainly been there for Watford with the impressive Roberto Pereyra tops coring for them.
Preyera has three goals this season and he’s a 7/2 anytime goalscorer option* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.). Even after their bright start, Watford finds themselves as heavy underdogs for the game. One great thing from Javi Garcia’s team is that he has started with the same eleven in each match this season.
So there is consistency there. Gerard Deulofeu is going to have a late fitness test ahead of this one. Last season Watford produced a W7 D6 L6 record at home in the top flight. They have won their last three in a row there.
Tottenham have started equally as strongly with maximum points from three games. Their two away games so far has seen them take a 2-1 win at Newcastle and that big 3-0 success at Manchester United. That was their first clean sheet of the season there.
We are going with both teams to score at bet365 for 3/4 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.) as we see plenty of action flying around in this one. Just like Watford, the goals have been flowing from Tottenham so far this season.
Harry Kane has two for the season and it is no surprise to see him up as the 5/2 first goalscorer favourite at all* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.). Spurs are on a five-match winning streak in the Premier League.
With wins in nine of their last ten games against Watford across all competitions then they are going to have plenty of backing. The Lilywhites have returned at least two goals in each of their last four Premier League. Erik Lamela may still be out so they could be unchanged from their trip to Old Trafford.
Tottenham collected four points against Watford last season and they are undefeated in ten previous Premier League games against them (W7 D3). So that’s a fine record and Tottenham have won two of their last three (D1) visits to Vicarage Road in the top flight. Both teams have scored in each of the last three meetings at Vicarage Road in the Premier League. Spurs have won all but one of their last ten games against Watford in all exemptions.
This has the makings of being an entertaining game. We can see the energy that Watford are playing with, producing some kind of challenge to the Lilywhites. Spurs have been getting business done in their usual fashion, but we can’t overlook the appeal on the draw for our Watford v Tottenham betting tips.
