Betting. Watford vs Tottenham [01.01.17] : the Spurs start a new year with a win

Premier League

Matchweek 19

01.01.2017

Bet: Total Goals by Away Team over 1,5

The sports betting experts expected Watford to flow in the middle of the Premier League table and they were absolutely right. After the first 18 matches Walter Mazzarri’s side sit on the 10th position with 22 points. It should be mentioned that the last 6 games were quite difficult for the Hornets as they managed to get only 4 points. On the Boxing day Watford drew (1-1) with Crystal Palace, but their performance was far from being perfect. So sports betting companies don’t think the Hornets will be able to overcome a team from top-five.

Then, they also lost points against Manchester United (0-1). At this moment Pochettino’s team sit on the 5th place – 10 points behind Chelsea. Apart from the national competition, the Spurs were involved in the Champions League. The betting experts expected them to dominate the group, but they only managed to get the third position.

While choosing a bet you should take into account the fact that Tottenham have been quite confident in their last 3 matches, especially against Southampton on the Boxing day (4-1). So they are likely to keep on winning even without their defenders Walker and Vertonghen who are suspended. As for the Hornets, they are plagued with the injuries. Mazzarri will miss Janmaat, Behrami, Okaka, Success, Dja Djedje, Pereyra and Britos. Besides, the sports betting experts remind that the Hornets lost both their last season’s head-to-head encounters.

The bookmakers fairly consider the away team to be a favorite: Watford – 5,70, Draw – 3,94, Tottenham – 1,68. Although, the Hornets have good results at home, they have too many problems now and it will be very difficult to break Tottenham’s strong defense. On the other hand, Mazzarri’s team scored in every home match, except for one game. So the bet “Total Goals over 2,5” (1,94) is definitely worth your attention. It’s also recommended to bet on “Total Goals by Away Team over 1,5” (1,77). Besides, there is a good option “Tottenham to win with 1-goal margin” (3,40).
