Watford vs Tottenham Match Preview & Betting Tips

Both Watford and Tottenham have been sensational so far in the Premier League. Both sides have a 100% score, winning each of three games played so far. It’s time for that to chance, as the two meet on Sunday evening at the Vicarage Road. Who’s gonna be the happier side once the referee blows the final whistle? Find out in this Watford vs Tottenham match preview. And at the end of it, there are a few betting tips you may find useful.


With three wins in a row in the Premier League, Watford are currently near the top of the table. No one’s saying that it’s not a great success, but to be frank, they did have a pretty easy start of the season. Those three games saw them playing against Brighton, Burnley, and Crystal Palace, teams that aren’t quite as good as their next opponent.

In fact, Watford’s biggest challenge so far comes this Sunday when Tottenham are traveling a few dozen miles to the north from London. The fact that these teams are almost city rivals means that there’s gonna be a lot of noise coming from the stands. And Watford players seem to love it!

Watford were very good at home last season, winning most of their points at the Vicarage Road. They even managed to snatch a point off Tottenham there. The score was 1:1 in the match at Watford’s stadium, which was played last December. They’re now hoping for the same, but it’s going to be tough as the Spurs are coming to town after a big victory won last Monday.


Unlike Watford who had a pretty easy schedule so far, Tottenham need to be really proud of their recent performances, as they’ve managed to beat some pretty tough opponents. Of course, their biggest success is the 3:0 win over Manchester United at the Old Trafford.

The Spurs simply destroyed the Red Devils and are now confident they can keep on winning. They have a team that seems capable of going far this season, perhaps even challenging the title. Their squad is basically the same as last season, but the players have grown. They now have more experience and much more confidence than ever.

Lucas Moura has scored 3 goals so far, Harry Kane has 2 goals to his name. But, the Spurs are much more than these two men; they’re playing as a unit and it seems anyone in this team can score at any time. Watford are going to have a lot of trouble trying to keep their net safe. The best thing is that they don’t have any major injury problems. It’s true that a few players are struggling with fitness, but their key men are all 100% fit and ready for the clash with Watford.
