Tottenham v Watford betting tips: Hornets bid to end London hex
Preview and odds for Sunday’s Premier League clash
Spurs seek to maintain their 100 per cent record in the new campaign as we examine the odds to find some Tottenham v Watford betting tips.
Tottenham have won their opening two Premier League games by 1-0 scorelines while Watford slumped to defeat at Brighton last week after beginning the season with a home victory over Aston Villa.
Sunday’s match, which takes place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, kicks off at 2pm BST.
Tottenham v Watford match odds
Tottenham are 4/9 favourites to follow up their 1-0 home win over champions Manchester City and their 1-0 victory at Wolves last weekend.
Nuno Espirito Santo bids to lead Spurs to wins in their first three league games for just the second time in the last 12 seasons.
They have never won their opening three games of a league campaign without conceding in their history and are 6/5 to win to nil and change that statistic.
They will be buoyed by the news England captain Harry Kane announced in midweek he is staying for the remainder of the season at least following speculation he wanted to join Manchester City.
Spurs, who have lost just one of their last 27 home league games against promoted sides (W24 D2), are 12/5 to win both halves in the Tottenham v Watford betting tips.
Watford defeated Villa 3-2 on their return to the Premier League but were beaten 2-0 at Brighton last weekend.
Like Tottenham, who played in the Europa Conference League play-offs in midweek, Watford were also in action, defeating Crystal Palace 1-0 in the League Cup.
Watford have lost each of their last seven Premier League away games, failing to score on five occasions in that run.

Tottenham v Watford head-to-head
Watford have scored on each of their last three trips to Tottenham, including their last meeting which resulted in a 1-1 draw – their third stalemate in the last four clashes.
Watford have won just one of the last 18 games against Spurs (D5 L12) – and that clash was at Vicarage Road in September 2018.
The Hornets are 19/10 to either win or draw the game in the Double Chance market in the Tottenham v Watford betting tips.
Tottenham’s Son Heung-min, who was on target against Manchester City, has scored five goals in nine Premier League appearances against Watford and is 21/20 to score at any time.
Nine of their previous 14 meetings saw both sides find the net and it is 21/20 this is the case again.
Tottenham v Watford key battles
Watford have won just two of their last 22 away league games in London (D4 L16) and won’t welcome Dele Alli’s return to form.
Having been in the wilderness under Jose Mourinho, he is once again showing plenty of confidence and scored his first Premier League goal in 533 days against Wolves last time out, ending a run of 19 top-flight appearances without a goal.
