Tottenham Hotspur v Watford, Preview & Prediction

Tottenham Hotspur v Watford – click here to bet

Spurs kept their admittedly faint title hopes alive to come from behind with 3-1 victory over Swansea on Wednesday night.  They trailed 1-0 approaching injury time and managed to score 3 quick goals to take the victory.  They remain 7 points behind Chelsea with both sides having 8 more games to play.  The victory was Spurs 5th successive win in the League, they have won 10 in a row at home.

Just when it looked as if Watford would be slipping back into the relegation zone they have grabbed 2 crucial victories in succession beating West Brom and Sunderland at home.  They are now up to 10th on the table on 37 points, 9 points clear of the drop.  Watford lost their last 2 matches on the road at Crystal Palace and Manchester United and failed to score a goal in either game.

Spurs won 4-1 at Watford earlier in the season and they beat Watford 1-0 at White Hart Lane last season.

 

Betting

Spurs 1/4

Draw 9/2

Watford 11/1

 

Suggested bet:  Handicap, Tottenham (-1) at 15/20.

Spurs will be keen to keep the pressure on Chelsea with a victory and I feel that Watford may just step off the gas a bit having all but ensured their survival in the English Premier League.
