The English Premier League match between Tottenham and Watford features as Bettingpro.com.au’s best bet for Sunday August 29.
Bet Of The Day August 29 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.
We aim for our third #BOTD on the trot when we head to the EPL for Sunday’s showdown between Tottenham and Watford.
Tottenham have made the perfect start to the season, winning their opening two games against reigning champions Man City and Wolves without conceding a goal, prevailing by 1-0 scores in both.
Spurs also successfully qualified for the Europa Conference League mid-week, registering a 3-0 home win over Portuguese side Ferreira.
With Harry Kane committing his future to the club, Tottenham are in a great position to drive forward and challenge the likes of City, Chelsea, Liverpool and Man United for the premiership this term.
Meanwhile, Watford have started the season in decent fashion after promotion back to the top flight, beating Aston Villa 3-2 at home before falling 2-0 away to Brighton last week.
However, it’s Watford’s away form that is cause for concern and why we’ll be backing Tottenham to provide another shut-out here.
Watford have only won one of their last five competitive away fixtures, scoring just one goal in all of those games combined.
Additionally, they’ve lost seven straight Premier League away matches, so they clearly struggle on the road when in the top flight.
Furthermore, Tottenham have won four of their last five EPL home games against Watford to nil – it doesn’t get much more dominant than that.
With Spurs yet to concede a goal in the Premier League this season, we can be confident and get some solid value for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side to win with another clean sheet on Sunday.
- Tottenham have won both of their EPL games this season to nil
- Tottenham have won four of their last five games in all competitions to nil
- Tottenham have won four of their last five EPL home games vs Watford to nil
- Watford have only won one of their last five competitive away games
- Watford have only scored one goal during that period
- Watford have lost their last seven straight EPL away fixtures
