Swansea v Tottenham Prediction & Betting Tips, 2nd January 201831st December 2017 / lee
Swansea v Tottenham Premier League Preview, 2nd January 7.45pm
There is no way that the Swans are going to be looking forward to this game against a top side. Swansea are looking increasingly likely to be playing Championship football next season and have only won twice at home so far this season. Spurs have not had the greatest run of form out on the road recently, but a win at Burnley in their last road game will have renewed their confidence a bit as they go and face the struggling Welsh outfit. Spurs are 2/7 odds on favourites to get the win under their belt with the draw at 4/1 and Swansea out at 11/1.
Swansea News and Form
This looks to be a bit of a thankless task for Swansea. The Welsh club have produced a W2 D2 L6 record at the Liberty Stadium this season but they have only lost one of their last four there (W1 D2) so have at least improved a bit. They badly need someone to show up in front of goal for them as they have managed just the six home goals all season long. In contrast, they have conceded at a rate of 1.5 goals per games and only 40% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals. Still with Spurs likely to turn up and dominate them, over 2.5 goals at Betfair is going to be a decent option. The Swans have only been leading at half time in one home game this season while four of their six home losses have been by just the one goal margin. Their defence has looked a little more vulnerable as of late though. 83% of the goals that the Swans have managed on home soil this season on the top flight have come in the second half of matches and they have opened the scoring in just two of their home fixtures. Tammy Abraham is their top scorer on home soil with a three goal haul for the season and he is an 11/4 anytime goalscorer option. How much will that win at Watford on the weekend, in Carlos Carvahal’s first game in charge, have lifted them?
Tottenham News and Form
Tottenham strung together a really poor five match sequence of away games without a win (D1 L4) but they finally managed to get themselves out of their away slump with a solid 3-0 win at Burnley just before Christmas in their most recent road game. Harry Kane was on fire over Christmas and in the Betfair first goalscorer market, he is the 2/1 outright favourite. There has been a lack of clean sheets for the Lilywhites recently but they are going to be seriously considered at 5/6 to win to nil in this away game. Four of the five away games that they have recorded this season (W5D1 L4) on their travels have been with a clean sheet so there is a bit of trend there. Spurs have netted 18 away goals in ten games so have returned a solid amount of goals on their travels, but hey have conceded at an average of over a goal per game away from home. Spurs have four clean sheets on their travels and they have been leading for an average of 31 minutes per away game this season. In the correct score market a Tottenham 2-0 is at 11/2 odds, the shortest priced option.
Swansea v Tottenham Head to Head
Swansea surprisingly held out for a point at Wembley earlier in the season but Spurs are undefeated in their thirteen previous Premier League games against the Welsh club with a W8 D5 record against them. Tottenham have scored at least two goals in each of their last five visits to the Liberty Stadium.
Who will win – Swansea v Tottenham Predictions
Tottenham should find enough to go and take a win at the Liberty Stadium in this one and there is every reason to go and back them to win to nil as well. They should possess the quality at the back to keep the Swans, who lack a serious threat, off the board. Spurs to win to nil.
