Tottenham vs Watford Betting Preview | 19 Oct 2019

Enduring their worst top-flight run in recent memory and desperately seeking some stability, Tottenham will welcome relegation scrappers Watford to North London on Saturday afternoon.

Suffering a humiliating 3-0 hammering away at Brighton heading into the international break, Spurs have lost four of their last five matches across all competitions, a run that also saw them come crashing out of the EFL Cup against League Two outfit Colchester last month.

Thankfully for Mauricio Pochettinio’s men, they are not the only London outfit who have continued to struggle since opening the 2019/2020 Premier League campaign.

Now the only side in the division still searching for their first victory so far this year, Watford have already fallen to the foot of the table and they also have a woeful record when making the trip to North London.

Losing their last eight matches on their travels to Tottenham, Spurs can be found at 1/2 with Ladbrokes to extend on that record this weekend.

Tottenham – A team in freefall

Although Tottenham may have managed to reach the Champions League final over the summer, it has been nothing short of a woeful campaign for Spurs.

Now sat down in ninth and coming off the back of a 3-0 hammering away at Brighton prior to the international break, Head Coach Mauricio Pochettino has seen his men also win just two of their last seven Premier League matchups.

Still feeling the effects of their humiliating 7-2 defeat against Bayern Munich earlier in the month, the pressure is really starting to mount on the one-time Southampton boss.

Pochettino is currently pencilled in at 4/1 with Betfair to be the next manager given the boot, only behind Marco Silva and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

If Tottenham are to make a return to winning ways this weekend, then fans around North London will be looking for Harry Kane to lead their charge on Saturday afternoon.

Spurs’ only positive note so far this season, the England skipper has already has 13 goals for club and country and can be found at 8/13 with William Hill to once again find the net this weekend.

Watford – The relegation favourites?

Despite appointing former boss Quique Sánchez Flores last month, Watford still find themselves at the heart of a real struggle.

Now the only side in England’s top-tier who are yet to record a victory in their opening eight contests, the Hornets are already four points adrift of safety and it is no surprise they’re seen to be a leading contender for the drop this season.

Collecting three points out of a possible 24, Saturday’s guests are now priced at 4/5 with Coral to be hit with a Championship return come May.

A huge part of Watford’s continued issues of late has come down to some incredibly toothless displays in the final third.

Playing out a 0-0 stalemate against Sheffield United prior to the break, they have now failed to find the net in each of their last three Premier League appearances.

Holding the worst attacking record in the division, Watford can be found at 11/8 with 888Sport to draw yet another blank this weekend.
