Our tipster is expecting a thrilling tussle with goals aplenty when these two teams go head-to-head at Vicarage Road on Saturday afternoon

Tottenham Hotspur will be desperate to put their recent dip in form behind them when they travel to Vicarage Road to face Watford on Saturday afternoon.

Mauricio Pochettino's team have been beaten in each of their last three Premier League fixtures away from home and have taken just four points from the last 15 available in the top flight, winning just one of their last six matches in domestic competition; despite that, bet365 go 8/11 (1.72) that Tottenham get back to winning ways against Watford.

The Hornets have been plagued with inconsistency throughout the campaign, too, as Marco Silva's side have won just two of their seven matches on home soil in the Premier League this season.

Watford had been beaten in three successive matches before back-to-back victories against West Ham United and Newcastle United respectively appeared to have steadied the ship; Silva's men, though, were torn apart by Manchester United on Tuesday night as Jose Mourinho's team raced into a 3-0 lead before enjoying a 4-2 win at Vicarage Road.

The former Hull City boss, therefore, will hope for a much stronger showing from his side against Spurs, and a home win can be backed at 7/2 (4.50) with bet365, while the same firm offer 11/4 (3.75) that these rivals settle for a share of the spoils.

An open game seems likely here, for, despite Spurs' recent troubles, Pochettino's team have scored in all but two of their last 15 fixtures in all competitions, while Harry Kane's strike against Leicester City on Tuesday night was the 16th goal that the England striker has scored this season.

bet365 offer just 4/6 (1.67) that the 24-year-old adds to his impressive tally in this match, while the same firm go 5/2 (3.50) that Kane breaks the deadlock this weekend.

Watford have scored at least two goals in each of their last four matches and Silva's side are capable of causing concern for a Spurs defence that has managed just one clean sheet in their last 10 outings in all competitions; bet365's 7/10 (1.70) quote, therefore, for goals at both ends could well prove popular with punters, while the same firm also offer 7/10 (1.70) that there are least three goals scored in this game.

Neither side appears to be at their best ahead of Saturday's showdown, but there remains plenty of potential for a high-scoring tussle when these two teams lock horns; bet365 go 6/4 (2.50) that there are at least two goals scored before the break, but the 21/20 (2.05) quote from the same firm for both teams to score and more than two goals to be scored at Vicarage Road may offer best value for punters ahead of this potentially captivating contest.

Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals at 21/20 (2.05) for a 1pt stake with bet365
