Tottenham Hotspur vs Watford Football Betting Tips
After six winless games peppered with four losses, it's a miracle that Watford find themselves in the top half of the table at the 10th spot of the Premier League table. Even with superior ball-possession in recent games, the Hornets haven't been able to capitalize on the chances of scoring, with their main strikers Troy Deeney and Abdoulaye Doucoure completely ineffective. The last six games have yielded them just 2 goals and the Hornets have conceded as many as 60 goals so far in the season which is less than only 15th placed West Ham’s 63 and 19th placed Stoke City’s 65.
The constant changing and chopping of defensive and midfield positions also have led to their near-debacle. Coach Javier Gracia's 4-2-3-1 formations in the Huddersfield and Burnley games, both of which they lost, and 4-4-2 against Crystal Palace haven't helped matters. With a trip to the Wembley for Monday night's game against Tottenham, Watford begin a tough trio of final games for the season that has them facing Manchester United next and finally Newcastle at home. A slip below the current 10th spot looks more of a possibility now.
Tottenham Hotspur will probably put their eighth successive FA Cup semi-final loss behind them when they face the Hornets at Wembley. Harry Kane, Del Alli, Son Heung-Min and Christian Eriksen will attempt to make the most of one of the weakest defenses in the Premier League and add to their personal tally of goals. In the FA Cup tie, Spurs looked lost after Alexis Sanchez responded to Del Alli's early goal with an equalizer and were not able to find their customary rhythm after that.
Mauricio Pochettino's men,though, will look to better the results of a 1-1 draw that the Hornets were able to force out of them at Vicarage Road in early December. That was a phase when Watford were in a much better place, but things have deteriorated since then and facing a Spurs side in form is altogether a different proposition.
With clashes against sides like Watford, last placed West Bromwich, Newcastle and Leicester City coming up (three of them being at home at Wembley), Tottenham look poised to pip Liverpool from the 3rd place. Liverpool are only 3 points ahead and have played one game more than the Spurs (35 vs 34)
The last time Watford won a game against the Spurs was in 1994. Since then they have gone through 12 outings with the North London without a win and in fact lost in 9 of them. Looks like it's easy three points for the taking for the hosts on April 30th at Wembley.
