This should be an entertaining London derby to look forward too. West Ham will be looking for a big three points in this one as they face up to the Lilywhites. That would give them a fantastic lift. Buy Spurs return after the international break having put together a strong three-match winning streak. Read our West Ham v Tottenham betting tips for more.
West Ham 10/3
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 15th, 2018 at 7:52 p.m.)
The Hammers had their little positive spurt of form snapped with a 1-0 defeat out at Brighton just before the international break. That leaves them W2 D1 L1 in their last four league games. That, in turn, was after losing their opening four games of the season. Their home form reads just W1 D1 L2 for the season, but are undefeated in their last two on home soil.
They picked up a draw against Chelsea and then banked that big 3-1 success over Manchester United. So they have held their own against some of the top sides at home this season. All of West Ham’s home games this season (including this one) have been against sides currently in the top half of the table.
Defensively they have only the one clean sheet this season so are going to be at risk. For our West Ham v Tottenham betting tips were are looking at both teams to score at 8/13 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:14 pm).
Recent games between these two have provided plenty of goals. Five of West Ham’s eight league games this season have made it above the goal line as well. They have won two of their last three games at home against Spurs and this would be a massive three points for them.
Spurs have put together a three-match winning streak, beating Brighton, Huddersfield and Cardiff. There are naturally going to be stiffer tests to come for them. Starting with this one and they won’t want to lose momentum in this London derby because next up for them comes Manchester City.
Tottenham have produced well on the road, winning four of their five away games. Their only blip was a 2-1 loss at Watford at the start of September. Over 2.5 goals is at 4/6 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:14 pm).
That appeals for West Ham v Tottenham betting tips because Spurs have scored at least two goals in all but one of their away games this season. They have found the back of the net in all eight of their league games this season. 75% of Tottenham’s league games this season have gone over 2.5 goals.
Spurs have averaged exactly two goals per away game this season, while they have taken a clean sheet in 40% of them. They have had some tight battles with West Ham recently though. Harry Kane is the 5/2 first goalscorer favourite* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:14 pm).
Tottenham got four points from their meetings with West Ham last season but they weren’t easy points. There was a 1-1 home draw for them after edging a tight away scrap 3-2. In the last four league meetings in this London derby, Spurs are W2 D1 L1 and they have lost two for their last three away trips to West Ham, both 1-0 losses. Five of the last eight games between them in all competitions have gone over 2.5 goals.
The draw may not have some appeal in the game as West Ham have a good bit of home form behind them. They may well have enough in them to grind out a point and make life very difficult for the Lilywhites. Draw.

Tottenham have put back to back league wins on the board to just about hold on to a top-four place heading in the next round of league action. They will be heavily backed no doubt as well as they play host to Cardiff. The Bluebirds are having some big issues dealing with life in the top flight as they are still in search of their first win. Read our Tottenham v Cardiff betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 2nd, 2018 at 8:23 p.m.)
Thanks to back to back wins over Brighton and Huddersfield (both away from home) Spurs have settled down a bit. They have improved their form to W5 L2 from their seven league games this season. The Lilywhites have netted at least two goals in all but one of their league games this season and they will be expected to be pretty comfortable on home soil against Cardiff on the weekend. A Tottenham 2-0 correct score looks a strong option at 7/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 3:03 pm).
Spurs did have European action in midweek so we can look for just a nice comfortable win for them in this one. Tottenham to win to nil is tremendous value at 21/20 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 3:03 pm). Harry Kane has come up with three goals in his last two games and is heading up the First and Anytime goalscorer markets. This will only be their third league home game of the season so there’s very little to go on for them at home. They have averaged exactly two goals in their two home games so far. Their 2-0 win out at Huddersfield last weekend returned just their second clean sheet of the season.
The Bluebirds are struggling pretty badly at the moment. Even when they are scoring they are still not able to get points on the board. They are stuck on just two points from 0-0 draws against Newcastle and Huddersfield early in the season and now the Welsh club are on a four-match losing streak. In that sequence of four games, they have conceded a total of thirteen goals as well. They lost 2-1 at home against Burnley last weekend and there doesn’t appear to be an immediate solution to their problems.
Away from home they are D1 L2 and suffered a big loss at Chelsea in their last away game. On their two trips to London this season in the top flight they have shipped a total of seven goals. Cardiff have produced just the one away goals this season. Looking at the goals which they have conceded ten of them have either been in the final fifteen minutes of the first half of the final fifteen minutes of the second half during games. So those are certainly the periods where they are most vulnerable. This could be another long afternoon for them and both teams not to score is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 3:03 pm).
Spurs won both games against Cardiff in the 2013/14 Premier League season 1-0 and they are undefeated in their last seven against them in all competitions. Spurs actually haven’t conceded a single goal in any of their last five games against Cardiff.
Tottenham should be strong enough to see off a Cardiff side who are leaking a lot of goals and not threatening too much going forward. We can only see a routine home win cropping up in our Spurs v Cardiff betting tips and a Tottenham to win to nil bet appeals.
3rd October 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Terriers are rooted to the foot of the table having picked up just the two points. They are struggling badly and they may not get a respite in this one. Tottenham showed a bit of character to snap a losing streak in picking up an away win at Brighton last weekend. Read our Huddersfield v Tottenham betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 24th, 2018 at 11:52 p.m.)
The Terriers have been having a rough time of things this season with just the two points on the board so far. They have lost their last two and the goals have been really hard to come by for them. They have scored just the three goals all season in their six games. Their home form reads D1 L2 and they have yet to hit the back of the net on home soil. A Tottenham to win to nil option is at 6/5 odds* (betting odds taken on September 25th, 2018 at 5:10 pm).
That’s even with the lack of clean sheets that Spurs have picked up. They are still value to get one on the weekend. The Terriers have won just two of their last thirteen league home games now, losing seven of those. They have failed to score in seven of their last eight Premier League home fixtures as well. Both teams not to score is at 3/4 odds* (betting odds taken on September 25th, 2018 at 5:10 pm) and we are taking that in our Huddersfield v Tottenham betting tips.
Spurs collected a win out at Brighton last weekend and that was a much-needed success from them as well because they have had lost their previous two league games. Spurs have only the one clean sheet to their name this season which is surprising from them really. They almost got one against Brighton last weekend, conceding in the 90th minute of the game. Spurs are W3 L1 on their travels this season, the loss happening at Watford at the start of September. They have scored in each and every league game played this season.
In the bet365 correct score market, a Tottenham 1-0 option is at 11/2 odds or you could push to 6/1 for a 2-0* (betting odds taken on September 25th, 2018 at 5:10 pm). Harry Kane has not been at his sharpest this season and even he has admitted that. But he still clearly leads the goalscorer markets for the match. Spurs have not been behind at halftime this season away from home and a Tottenham/Tottenham half-time/ full-time bet may have plenty of appeal in the game with the Terrors struggling so badly.
Tottenham recorded back to back wins to nil over Huddersfield last weekend, scoring six goals in total. They bagged a 4-0 win in this corresponding fixture from the last term. That was the first meeting between them since a 1973 League Cup tie so there is little recent history between them.
We are going to go with the away win to nil for our Huddersfield Tottenham predictions. The Terriers just look capable of holding out at the moment against a good top six side. They are leaking goals and Tottenham can expose that.
27th September 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Seagulls have been scrapping out points lately and they may well fancy their chances of extending their unbeaten home form for the season. They have already beaten Manchester United at the Amex this term. Spurs had extra work in the Champions League in midweek and still look to be a bit short of their best. That could make this trip to the south coast tricky. Read our Brighton v Tottenham betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 19th, 2018 at 7:34 p.m.)
It has not been a bad return from Brighton so far this season with a W1 D2 L2 record on the board. The two defeats that they have suffered were both out on the road and they have remained undefeated on home soil with a W1 D1 record. There was that famous win over Manchester United and then a 2-2 draw with Fulham. So surprisingly the Seagulls have rattled off five goals in two home games. Still, the sensible option in this one is to look under 2.5 goals at 21/20 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on September 19th, 2018 at 7:34 p.m.).
This is a bit of concern over the defence of the Seagulls as they have conceded at least two goals in six of their last seven matches. Still, going back to their home from they are undefeated in their last five at the Amex in the Premier League. Even though they are going off as underdogs there does look some pretty decent value on a Brighton-Draw Double Chance at 23/20 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on September 19th, 2018 at 7:34 p.m.). They may well be able to hold their own.
The Lilywhites conceded two late goals in midweek to suffer a 2-1 loss at Inter in their opening Champions League fixture of the season. That was a blow for them on top for their current league form. They have lost their last two top-flight games by a 2-1 scoreline, going down against Watford and then Liverpool. They didn’t play very well in either of those and they are starting to look a bit headed and not even Harry Kane looks quite right at the moment. But does boss Mauricio Pochettino dare risk resting him? Kane is still the 13/5 first goalscorer favourite* (Betting Odds were taken on September 19th, 2018 at 7:34 p.m.).
Away from home, this season Tottenham are W2 L1 with their wins coming at Newcastle and Manchester United before their loss at Watford. That is just the one clean sheet that the Lilywhites have earned this season which is another surprise about them this season. In the correct score market the 1-1 draw is at 7/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on September 19th, 2018 at 7:34 p.m.). It is just not all coming together for Spurs at the moment. They could get Lucas Moura back as well as Kieran Trippier and Toby Alderweireld who missed the game against Inter.
The Seagulls actually collected a point at home against Spurs last season after having lost at Wembley. That was their only previous Premier League meetings. It was their first league meetings since the 1982/83 old English Division one. Across all competitions, Spurs have won three of the last four meetings (D1).
The draw has plenty of appeal for our Brighton v Tottenham betting tips. The Seagulls have shown some strengths on home soil and things are not quite clicking for Brighton. That can only lead us to the draw in the match outright.
19th September 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Premier League returns with a bang on the weekend in a high profile clash between Spurs and Liverpool. The Reds have produced four straight wins to start the season and they lead the league. Spurs haven’t quite been able to keep pace as they were taken down by Watford before the international break. Read our Tottenham v Liverpool betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.)
It is a W3 L1 record that Spurs have produced so far this season in the Premier League, their winning streak being snapped against Watford before the international break. They played poorly in that game and perhaps highlighted an issue in that they struggle for a Plan B when their fluent football isn’t happening. This will only be Tottenham’s second game of the season in the league, their other one ended in a 3-1 success over Fulham. Harry Kane is the 7/2 first goalscorer favourite* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.).
Last season Spurs produced good form at Wembley with a W13 D4 L2 record and it looks as if they will be staying there for a while as there have been delays with their new home. Spurs will be waiting on late fitness tests for Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris and a couple of others. We are going over 2.5 goals with bet365 at 13/20 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.). Each of Tottenham’s last five league games have gone above the goal line. They have scored in each of their four league games this season, netting nine in total. They have managed just the one clean sheet though.
Tottenham’s defense hasn’t been perfect and if anyone can expose that, it will probably be Liverpool. The Reds have started strongly with four straight wins but as well as their flair we have seen them grind a bit and dig out wins without playing well. Actually, there has been more of than that the flair. Mo Salah has started the season in good scoring form, but it is Sadio Mane who has been the most impressive and he is 15/8 in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken from September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.) for this one. A win in what is their first game against another of the big six this season would really send a big statement.
That would put them six points clear of a title rival. So far Liverpool have won away at Crystal Palace and Leicester and they scored exactly two goals in both of those. A Liverpool 2-1 correct score market option is at 9/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.). In each of their last five games in the Premier League Liverpool have been winning at both half time and full time so that is a trend. The Reds have gone unbeaten in eleven of their last twelve games against Spurs in all competitions and their defense has been good, having conceded just one goal this term.
While Liverpool have been strong in their recent form against Spurs, it didn’t go their way last season. Tottenham banked four points from their two games against the Reds, powering their way to a 4-1 home win in the process. Liverpool have only lost one of their last 11 league games against the Lilywhites. Four of the last six meetings though have ended in a draw. Both teams have scored in all but one of the last six games between the two clubs in all competitions.
It is likely that Tottenham will be under pressure in this one. They churned out a really poor performance in their loss against Watford before the international break and their defense looked creaky. Liverpool have looked stronger in terms of defense this season and they could strike an important three points. The away win is our Tottenham v Liverpool prediction.
13th September 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Both teams have started the season with maximum points on the board after three games. Tottenham made a big statement last weekend with a resounding win at Old Trafford against Manchester United. As for Watford, they have been really bright and full of commitment, but this is their first real big test of the season. Read our Watford v Tottenham betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.)
Watford fans could only have been dreaming about this kind of start from their side. The Hornets have won three from three having taken down Brighton, Burnley and Crystal Palace. Granted there are going to be much stiffer challenges to come, like on this weekend for example.
The Hornets have scored two goals exactly in their two games and we can only take a look over 2.5 goals for the fixture at 7/10 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.). The goals have certainly been there for Watford with the impressive Roberto Pereyra tops coring for them.
Preyera has three goals this season and he’s a 7/2 anytime goalscorer option* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.). Even after their bright start, Watford finds themselves as heavy underdogs for the game. One great thing from Javi Garcia’s team is that he has started with the same eleven in each match this season.
So there is consistency there. Gerard Deulofeu is going to have a late fitness test ahead of this one. Last season Watford produced a W7 D6 L6 record at home in the top flight. They have won their last three in a row there.
Tottenham have started equally as strongly with maximum points from three games. Their two away games so far has seen them take a 2-1 win at Newcastle and that big 3-0 success at Manchester United. That was their first clean sheet of the season there.
We are going with both teams to score at bet365 for 3/4 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.) as we see plenty of action flying around in this one. Just like Watford, the goals have been flowing from Tottenham so far this season.
Harry Kane has two for the season and it is no surprise to see him up as the 5/2 first goalscorer favourite at all* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.). Spurs are on a five-match winning streak in the Premier League.
With wins in nine of their last ten games against Watford across all competitions then they are going to have plenty of backing. The Lilywhites have returned at least two goals in each of their last four Premier League. Erik Lamela may still be out so they could be unchanged from their trip to Old Trafford.
Tottenham collected four points against Watford last season and they are undefeated in ten previous Premier League games against them (W7 D3). So that’s a fine record and Tottenham have won two of their last three (D1) visits to Vicarage Road in the top flight. Both teams have scored in each of the last three meetings at Vicarage Road in the Premier League. Spurs have won all but one of their last ten games against Watford in all exemptions.
This has the makings of being an entertaining game. We can see the energy that Watford are playing with, producing some kind of challenge to the Lilywhites. Spurs have been getting business done in their usual fashion, but we can’t overlook the appeal on the draw for our Watford v Tottenham betting tips.
31st August 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
There will be extra pressure on the Red Devils now going into this home game after their shock loss out at Brighton last weekend. That’s going to be a huge blow if they were to lose back to back games so early in the season. They will be taking on a Spurs side who have started in much better fashion though, as the Lilywhites have picked up back to back wins to start the campaign with. Read our Manchester United v Tottenham betting tips for more.
Manchester United 6/4
* (Betting Odds were taken on August 23rd, 2018 at 11:32 p.m.)
The Red Devils need a response here after losing against Brighton last weekend. Can they handle the pressure because it was a poor performance that they churned out at the Amex? They did win their opening game of the season which was on home soil against Leicester, taking a 2-1 slightly unconvincing win in that one after a bright opening spell.
As a positive, they have scored exactly two goals in both games this season and Paul Pogba has gotten one in each and he is a 7/2 anytime goalscorer option for the game* (Betting Odds were taken on August 23rd, 2018 at 11:32 p.m.). Naturally his teammate Romelu Lukaku is a shorter-priced option in the market for them. United can at least take some solace from their home performances last season.
United posted a superb W15 D2 L2 record last season at home in the top flight and they won their home games against all but one of the other top six finishers (Man City). They only conceded the nine goals at home last season, but keeper David de Gea seems a bit unsettled at the moment, probably because of the defence in front of him so both teams to score is at 3/4 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 23rd, 2018 at 11:32 p.m.).
United are undefeated in 35 of their last 37 home matches in the Premier League. The Red Devils have been winning at half time and at full time in five of their last six home games, so that’s not a bad trend to consider for your betting. Each of United’s last three home wins have been by a one-goal margin only.
Spurs have opened the season with back to back wins over Newcastle and then Fulham. As they are without a clean sheet this season it warrants backing this game to go over 2.5 goals which is at even money odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 23rd, 2018 at 11:32 p.m.). Tottenham’s star striker Harry Kane finally broke his unwelcome record of never having scored a Premier League goal in the month of August, as he struck one against Fulham last weekend.
That will have done his own confidence the power of good and, not too surprisingly, he is the 7/2 first goalscorer favourite option for this game* (Betting Odds were taken on August 23rd, 2018 at 11:32 p.m.). The Lilywhites will need a big game from him. Spurs have scored at least two goals in their last three matches in the Premier League now and there have been over 2.5 goals netted in each of Tottenham’s last three league games.
Last season out on the road in the Premier League Tottenham posted a W10 D4 L5 record on their travels but they had a rough time against the other sides who finished in the top six. They posted just a W1 D1 L3 record on the road against their fellow top-six finishers so that was a lot of crucial dropped points in their big away games.
Spurs are just about at full strength now after some early season concerns. They are missing Son Heung-min who is off at the Asian Games while there could be a doubt over keeper Hugo Lloris after his arrest on Friday morning.
Manchester United and Spurs traded home wins in the top flight last season. They are on a four-match winning streak against Spurs at Old Trafford in the Premier League and there have been seven home wins in the last seven Premier League fixtures between these two. Under Mauricio Pochettino, Spurs have failed to score or pick up a point in four league visits to Old Trafford. United’s last three home wins over the Lilywhites have been a 1-0 success and both teams have scored in just one of the last eight Premier League meetings.
We have to go with the home win for our Manchester United v Tottenham betting tips. The Red Devils just have a habit of delivering the goods in these big home fixtures and we saw plenty of evidence of that last season when they beat the rest of the top six at Old Trafford aside from Man City. We are backing the home side to come good, probably by no more than a one-goal margin.

Despite not making any moves in the summer transfer market, Tottenham opened the new season on a positive note with a victory. The Lilywhites took three points out on the road at Newcastle and they get back to Wembley for this game as their new stadium isn’t ready. Fulham couldn’t get anything on the board last weekend as they suffered a home loss against Crystal Palace, a game in which they would have expected to get more out of. Read our Tottenham v Fulham betting tip for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken on August 16th, 2018 at 4:13 p.m.)
So it was a good start produced by the Lilywhites who took a 2-1 win out at Newcastle. There was pressure on them to deliver after not spending anything in the summer transfer market. But they got the job done through goals from Jan Vertonghen and Dele Alli. It is Harry Kane who is the 21/20 first goalscorer favourite* (Betting Odds were taken on August 16th, 2018 at 4:13 p.m.) for the game. He did get a full 90 minutes against the Magpies which was surprising after his busy summer at the World Cup. He still has that stigma of never having scored a Premier League goal in the month of August over him.
Tottenham produced solid home numbers in a W13 D4 L2 record last season at Wembley. They won seven of their last eight games there as well, the only exception a loss against Manchester City. So they will naturally be expected to produce in this one and a Tottenham 2-0 option in the correct score market is one of our top betting tips for Tottenham v Fulham at 6/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 16th, 2018 at 4:13 p.m.). Spurs averaged just over two goals per game at home last season and collected a clean sheet in 53% of their home fixtures. They have scored at least two goals in six of their last seven games against Fulham too. Eight of their eleven home wins were to nil as well which offers another option. Spurs are unbeaten in 36 of their last 38 league home games.
So it didn’t happen for Fulham last weekend and really more would have been expected from the west London outfit at home against Crystal Palace. They have a very good squad in place though and still aren’t quite at full strength. Alfie Mawson and big summer signing Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa are doubtful for the game with Denis Odoi suspended still. Fulham bossed possession last weekend against Palace and that is something that they will do against sides, but they are going to have to up their clinical finishing. That having been said, bossing possession against Spurs isn’t likely to happen. Both Teams not to score in the match is at 3/4 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 16th, 2018 at 4:13 p.m.) as this is going to be a tough road game for the Cottagers and they won’t be at full strength at the back, which isn’t going to help them.
These two did actually meet last season as they were paired up in the FA Cup at Craven Cottage. Tottenham ran out 3-0 winners on the day and that extended their winning streak to three against their fellow Londoners. The last time they were together in the Premier League was in the 2013/14 season with Spurs winning both of those fixtures. Spurs have won four of their last five Premier League home games against Fulham.
Tottenham should be reliable enough back at Wembley to pick up another three points and continue what would be a solid start. Because Fulham couldn’t produce anything against Crystal Palace last weekend, which was surprising, we are going to back Tottenham to win to nil.

It has been another difficult summer for Newcastle with reported player-unrest at the club and boss Rafa Benitez not being supported in the transfer market. It could all add up to a difficult opener for them as they play host to Tottenham on Saturday lunchtime. Spurs will be looking to kick their new campaign into high gear right from the offer and again being quiet in the summer transfer market. Read our Newcastle v Tottenham betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken on August 8th, 2018 at 8:12 p.m.)
So there has been the same old story at Newcastle of them working on a sell-to-buy business which means that little of significance has happened. They did do a swap deal with West Brom though, bringing in Salomon Rondon on a season-long loan deal, while shipping out Dwight Gayle to the Baggies. So that is another new forward at the club after Newcastle completed a deal for Yoshinori Muto from Mainz. After selling off Aleksandar Mitrovic to Fulham, Joselu is the only recognised striker at the club from last season’s campaign. It’s fair to say it hasn’t been the most inspiring of summer’s from Newcastle and under 2.5 goals is at 4/5 odds at bet365* (Betting Odds were taken on August 8th, 2018 at 8:12 p.m.).
Last season in the top flight Newcastle posted a W8 D4 L7 record on home soil where they managed just the 21 goals in their 19 games. We don’t see them as being much more prolific this time around despite the changes up front over the summer. This is actually a repeat of Newcastle’s opening game of last season which they lost 2-0 at home against Spurs. In the bet365 correct score market a repeat 2-0 scoreline for the Lilywhites is at 9/1 odds with the shortest priced option in at 6/1 for the 1-1 draw* (Betting Odds were taken on August 8th, 2018 at 8:12 p.m.). As a positive, the Magpies have won five of their last six home games.
There are a lot of injury and fitness doubts for Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino to have to try and deal with. With the extra workload that a lot of the Tottenham players had at the World Cup, their preparations for the new season have been disrupted. It’s possible that the likes of Hugo Lloris, Kieran Trippier and Harry Kane will be on the sidelines. They will be losing Heung-Min Son to the Asian Games soon but he is an appealing 13/8 anytime goalscorer option for the game* (Betting Odds were taken on August 8th, 2018 at 8:12 p.m.). After a third-place finish in the league, last season have they done enough over the summer to improve?
Tottenham posted a W10 D4 L5 record away from home last season and they are undefeated in 18 of their last 20 Premier League matches. They are very stable and very solid and have been consistently good at the back to tempt punters into a Tottenham to win to nil bet at 12/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 8th, 2018 at 8:12 p.m.). Tottenham won their first four away games last season, starting with that success at Newcastle on the opening weekend and three of those four victories were to nil. This opener may be about their strength of depth more than anything.
Tottenham won both meetings against the Magpies last season and both of the wins were to nil. They took a 2-0 away win in this corresponding fixture from last term. Things are actually even now in the last six Premier League meetings between the two clubs with three wins each. Spurs have won three of their last league visits to St James’ Park though.
We are going to back the draw in this one. Newcastle will be pumped up on home soil for this opener even if the pre-season hasn’t been pretty. They have a decent bit of home form and we are going to take a chance of a Newcastle-Draw Double Chance cropping up with Spurs understrength.
9th August 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Tottenham secured a top-four finish in midweek with a 1-0 home win over Newcastle. So the pressure is off them and they can relax in this final game against Leicester. The Foxes snapped out of some poor form to produce a great home win over Arsenal in midweek which saw them secured a ninth-place finish for the season, regardless of what happens in this one. A win for Spurs guarantees them third.
Tottenham 2/11, Draw 6/1, Leicester 12/1* (Betting Odds taken at 10:55 p.m. on May 9th, 2018)
Tottenham have gotten the job done then in finalising a top-four place. They did that with a 1-0 home win over Newcastle. That leaves Spurs with six wins in their last seven games at Wembley in the league so they are carrying the form to suggest that they are going to close out the season with another victory. Each of their last six home wins have been with a clean sheet and Tottenham to win to nil at bet365 is at 7/5 odds* (betting odds taken on May 9th, 2018 at 6:46 p.m.) and should plenty of appeal for punters. Spurs have taken a clean sheet in 56% of their home games this season conceding just the 12 goals in their 18 home fixtures. Going forward they have averaged almost two goals per game and they each scored in each of their last fifteen home fixtures. A Tottenham 2-0 option in the bet365 correct score market is at 8/1 odds* (betting odds taken on May 9th, 2018 at 6:46 p.m.). Harry Kane got the goal for them against Newcastle in midweek and despite not looking that sharp since his return from injury he has scored in three of Tottenham’s last four games. Of the goals that Spurs have come up with at home this season, 63% of them have been in the second half of matches.
The Foxes were on a poor run of form with just one point from five games before they hosted Arsenal in midweek. They won that 3-1 to give them an end of season boost. Their overall away form for this season is just W5 D5 L8 so nothing great at all and they have lost their last two out on the road against Burnley and Crystal Palace. So far this season Leicester have lost six of their seven games (D1) against the current top eight so that doesn’t bode well for them really. You never know with Leicester at the moment, when they get their quick breaks going they are a threat and both teams to score is at 7/10 odds* (betting odds taken on May 9th, 2018 at 6:46 p.m.). They did look more likely their positive old selves in midweek it has to be said. They have struggled all season at the back though so may not have enough about them to win. But a half-time draw at bet365 could be a decent proposition as the Foxes have been level at half-time in 12 for their 18 away games this season. They should be able to play their part in this being an entertaining match up in the capital.
Leicester collected three points at home against Spurs at the back end of November with a 2-1 win. In the last five Premier League meetings between the two clubs, things are even with two wins each and a draw. Spurs have failed to win their last two home games against the Foxes. Both teams have scored in six of the last seven Premier League meetings.
Tottenham should be a more relaxed outfit after booking their top four finish for the season. Leicester have been struggling for away successes this season and are likely to take a tumble at Wembley but this could be a good open game. Tottenham to win & over 2.5 goals appeals.
