He has picked out two selections for the all London clash, with one particular name dominating his 15/1 double which can be backed directly through the link below with Paddy Power.
Bet Builder Tips
Emmanuel Dennis has been an absolute revelation for Watford since his summer arrival. After arriving for a reported figure of around €5 million, the Nigerian has set the Premier League across just about every department.
As I'm sure you're already aware, the forward has been a mainstay in this Watford side despite their mid-season managerial change and it's plain to see why. His eight goals and five assists leave him second to only Mohamed Salah in the entire league for most goal contributions so far this campaign.
And his eye-popping stats across the board are exactly the reasoning behind my Bet Builder for their game with Spurs on Saturday.
Dennis to score anytime in the match is best priced as a single at 7/2 with Paddy Power and Betfair. When you consider that he's already notched on eight different occasions in the league this season - with half of those coming in fixtures on home turf - that is a solid price for someone proving himself to be such a danger in front of goal.
If you need some more convincing with his stats, he's averaging 2.06 shots per game, with 1.13 of these hitting the target. If we're to look at his recent spate of matches, the Hornet has hit at least one shot on target in each of his last six, with him managing two in half of those. Even though Spurs have turned a corner under Antonio Conte's stewardship, they are far from the finished article. Watford can cause a lot of problems for a side that has kept only one clean sheet in their last four.
But it isn't just going forwards where Dennis can be a nuisance. Throughout the season, his staggering figures have emerged in the fouls and card columns. For the longest time, the former Club Brugge man led the way as the player to have been cautioned the most in the EPL this season with six yellow cards. This is a figure he still remains on after having not been booked for five games now, but sees three other players join him at the head of the list.
Despite this slowing down, he still tops the chart for having committed the most fouls of any player in the division with 38; four greater than the next closest to him. Last game was an anomaly for him this season - he didn't give away a single foul in a game for the first time since joining Watford, but I expect things to return to usual on Saturday against a team who will be determined to maintain their solid league form under relatively new management.
