Tottenham Hotspur vs Watford 08/29/2021
The Spurs (2-0-0, 6 points) are off to a good start as they are unbeaten in their first two starts. They opened the 2021-22 season with a 1-0 win over defending champions Manchester City and followed it up with another 1-0 nail-biter over Wolverhampton Wanderers. The two goals scored this season are considered paltry by their standards as they have a strong attacking unit led by the duo of Harry Kane and Son Heung-min. They hope to open the offensive floodgates against Watford just like they did in their Europa Conference League second-leg encounter against Pacos de Ferreira on Thursday. The Spurs scored three goals en route to a 3-1 aggregate win. In that game, Kane finally broke his goal-scoring slump as he netted two goals.
Team Statistics: Dele Alli (1 goal), Son Heung-min (1 goal), Steven Bergwijn (1 assist), Hugo Lloris (2 clean sheets).
The Hornets (1-0-1, 3 points) kicked off the Premier League on a positive note over Aston Villa, 3-2. However, they failed to sustain their momentum and lost to Brighton and Hove Albion, 0-2. They are expected to rely on Emmanuel Dennis, Ismaila Sarr, and Juan Hernandez in offense but they must also provide extra muscle on defense as they are faced with a tougher matchup in Tottenham due to the goalscoring abilities of their dynamic duo, Kane and Son. Watford need to find the goal-scoring magic they had against Aston Villa to stand a chance against the Spurs, who have not allowed any goal in the past two Premier League matches.
Team Statistics: Emmanuel Dennis (1 goal, 1 assist), Ismaila Sarr (1 goal), Juan Hernandez (1 goal), Tom Cleverley (1 assist).
Tottenham Hotspur vs Watford Betting Numbers
Summary: Best soccer predictions tonight point to a “walk in the park” victory for Tottenham due to their more superior lineup. The much-awaited offensive outburst from Kane might take place on Sunday against Watford as he has finally broken the drought in the team’s previous match against Pacos de Ferreira in the Europe Conference League. Kane’s teammates are also capable of putting up huge offensive numbers in one match so expect Watford’s defense to have a headache at the front. Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris would likely have no problems between the pipes as their defense is solid enough to hold down the Hornets’ offense.
Moneyline: Tottenham are overwhelming favorites to win their third consecutive match as they hold a -254 moneyline for this encounter. On the other hand, a +675 ML is given to Watford while a draw merits a +375 moneyline.
Pick: The Spurs will manhandle the Hornets to the tune of 3-0 and continue to be perfect in the 2021-22 English Premier League season.
