Tottenham v Watford (2000 BST, Sky Sports Premier League)

There aren't too many chances to see a Premier League game with a side priced as high as 20/1 for a victory.

That is the price you can get should you fancy Watford to get a result v Tottenham at Wembley on Monday, although that is not something we will be siding with.

Spurs' Premier League record in 2018 is impressive, having only lost to Manchester City while their only other defeats in the calendar year have come v Juventus and Manchester United in the FA Cup.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side missed their final chance of securing silverware this term as they lost to the Red Devils in the semi-final last week and now top priority will turn to securing that top-four finish – something they have done in successive seasons under the Argentine.

They go into the match knowing how Chelsea got on at Swansea on Saturday, with Antonio Conte’s Blues currently trailing Spurs by five points with 12 left to play for.

Spurs are winless in their last three matches in all competitions and this should come to an end here.

With Harry Kane keen to catch Mohamed Salah in the race for the Golden Boot, plus the motivation of qualifying for the Champions League next season, they should have the quality to do so quite comfortably.

What Spurs fans will be pleased about from this week is Pochettino clearing up his comments about his future that was misconstrued, reiterating his commitment to the 'project' at the club.

They come up against a Hornets side who have won just three Premier League games in the current calendar year, and it is hard to see where they will get points before the end of the season with Spurs (a), Newcastle (h) and Manchester United (a) to play.

It could well be a chance for Javi Gracia to prove he is worth sticking with, despite only coming into the Hertfordshire club in January.

They have shown glimpses of promise but struggled to catch a break – or any momentum at all – which is why the bookies cannot see them nicking this one.

Many were unsure how Spurs would settle at Wembley after uncertain performances there in Europe last season, but they have adapted well to the national stadium, winning ten and drawing four of 16 there in the Premier League this term.

Harry Kane in a score-and-win double is odds-on (2/5) so there is little value in backing that, but in the same market Heung-min Son is evens and could be worth a small stake to double your money having shown promise and been a key man in recent months - or backing them both to score (13/8).

I'm more keen on Kane to net at least a double at 9/4.

Spurs to win and over 2.5 goals can be backed at 8/15, as we expect them to return to their best and see out a strong finish to the season ahead of their stadium move this summer.

Prediction: Tottenham 4-1 Watford (Sky Bet odds: 14/1)

Best bet: Harry Kane to score two or more goals at 9/4

Alternative: Most goals to be scored in the second half at 21/20
