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.
11th May 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Tottenham’s form has dipped toward the end of the season without question, having picked up just one win in their last four league games. They suffered a shock defeat out at West Brom last weekend which not many people would have seen coming. Newcastle suffered their third straight loss last weekend as they fell at Watford.
Tottenham 1/6, Draw 6/1, Newcastle 14/1* (Betting Odds taken at 00:06 a.m. on May 6th, 2018)
There is a little bit of pressure on Spurs now after Chelsea beat Liverpool on the weekend. Spurs are clinging on to fourth place and only two points now ahead of Chelsea so they can’t afford any more slip-ups in this midweek fixture. The Lilywhites have only gone W1 D1 L2 in their last four games and they suffered a shock 1-0 loss at West Brom on the weekend. So they have dropped a lot of points lately which has allowed Chelsea to close the gap on them. But their last two games of the season are at home at least and Spurs have a good W11 D4 L2 record on home soil this season and they have won five of their last six at Wembley (L1). The loss was against Man City. Tottenham have averaged exactly two goals per game at home this season in the top flight and in the bet365 correct score market a Tottenham 2-0 is at 13/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 3:17 a.m. on May 7th, 2018). They need their good home form to be extended here to ease some pressure off them.
After their great four-match winning streak of form which saw them safe for the season, the Magpies have turned around and lost their last three. They weren’t very good at the back in their defeat at Watford on the weekend to be fair. Going forward they have only managed the one goal in their last three games. Each of the three defeats in that sequence have been by a one-goal margin only though and a Tottenham to win by a one-goal margin with bet365 is at 7/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 3:17 a.m. on May 7th, 2018). The Magpies have won just four times away from home this season, part of an overall W4 D4 L10 record and they have lost their away games at each of the other current top eight in the league. So the stats are not there for them. Newcastle have averaged a goal per game on their travels, having conceded an average of 1.6 per game. They have not managed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last seven away from St James’ Park.
The Lilywhites collected a good 2-0 away win at St James’ Park earlier this season but that snapped back to back defeats that they had suffered against the Magpies in the top flight. Spurs lost their last league home game against Newcastle 2-1. In the last five Premier League meetings things are pretty even with Spurs 3-2 ahead. Both teams have scored in three of the last four meetings.
Newcastle look pretty much done for the season and even though Tottenham misfired on the weekend they should be good enough to go and collect a home win in this one. Look for Spurs to get the win to nil.
8th May 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Baggies have strung together a nice bit of form to at least give what faint hopes of staying up, alive for a little bit longer. They are still five points away from safety so there’s every chance of them getting relegated this weekend. Tottenham will continue their hunt for more points to secure a top-four finish.
Tottenham 4/11, Draw 15/4, West Brom 15/2* (Betting Odds taken at 8:08 p.m. on April 30th, 2018)
Credit due to West Brom for the fight that they have shown at the end of the season. They have gone W2 D2 in their last four games, drawing their last two on home soil against Swansea and Liverpool. So it has at least put a bit of shine on their season and if they were to cause an upset in this one, safety doesn’t look likely. The Baggies are five points away from safety having played a game more than most of the other teams in the bottom seven. West Brom are W2 D9 L7 at home this season and they are without a win in any of their last six home fixtures. They have however found the back of the net in each of their last night at the Hawthorns so both teams to score at bet365 is at 19/20 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 9:35 p.m. on May 1st, 2018) and is worth a look. West Brom have not taken a clean sheet in any of their last six at home in the top flight so they can’t obviously be relied upon at the back. Five of their seven defeats at home this season have all been by just a one-goal margin. Home and away combined they are on a seven-match scoring streak in the league.
The Lilywhites eased themselves towards a top-four finish with a win over Watford on Monday night. That leaves them five points clear of Chelsea and with such a strong goal difference advantage over the Blues, a point out of this guarantees Spurs a Champions League spot next season. That win over Watford snapped a two-match winless streak that they were on in the top flight and it just settles them down again. They are undefeated in their last nine away games, winning six of those so they will be expected to deliver against the bottom side in the league. Spurs have scored at least two goals in three of their last four away games. Clean sheets haven’t been flowing for them so in the bet365 correct score market, a Tottenham 3-1 at 12/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 9:35 p.m. on May 1st, 2018) does look to be around the right mark. Harry Kane was on the mark against on Monday night and he is going to be a strong option in the anytime goalscorer market. He will still be harbouring ambitions of trying to catch Mo Salah in the goalscoring charts. Spurs have averaged almost two goals per away game this season and have scored in each of their last twelve road fixtures. 62% of their away goals have been in the second half of matches.
The Baggies fought out a very good point at Tottenham earlier this season in an unexpected result. Four of the last five league meetings though between these two now have ended in a 1-1 draw so there is a trend running there. Tottenham are W2 D4 in their last six games against the Baggies in the top flight. Spurs are W3 D3 in their last six trips to the Hawthorns in the Premier League.
The Baggies have done well to keep the fight going but it will likely topple to an end in this one. Spurs just have the extra quality to avoid a slip up at the Hawthorns. Spurs are still playing for important points and they can get all three.
3rd May 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Tottenham will have been disappointed with their FA Cup semi-final loss against Manchester United last weekend and they are going to struggle to finish higher than fourth now in the Premier League. That’s because they have taken just one point from their last two league games. Watford haven’t won in a while though after playing out a draw with Crystal Palace last weekend and could be vulnerable for this trip to Wembley.
Tottenham 1/9, Draw 13/2, Watford 14/1* (betting odds taken on April 24th, 2018 at 1:56 a.m.)
Spurs will be heading into the weekend trying to defend a five-point lead that they have over Chelsea in the race for the fourth spot. Things have just gone off the boil for them though having taken one point from their last two league games and having lost at Wembley against Manchester United in the FA Cup semi-final on the weekend. Tottenham have produced a W10 D4 L2 record at home this season and were on a great four-match winning streak there before Manchester City rolled up and landed a 3-1 win there recently. So Spurs have to start again. They have averaged two goals per game at home this season exactly and as they have conceded less than a goal per game on average, a Tottenham 2-0 correct score at Paddy Power for 6/1 odds appeals* (betting odds taken on April 24th, 2018 at 1:56 a.m.). Spurs have taken a clean sheet in 50% of their home games this season and of the goals that they have produced at home, 62% of them have come in the second half of matches. They have been particularly potent in the first fifteen minutes after the half time break, scoring 11 of their 20 second-half goals in that period. Spurs have scored in each of their last 22 league games and in 94% of their home fixtures. Three points edges them closer to that top four finish.
Who knows what is coming from Watford? They have gone just D2 L4 in their last six games after playing out a 0-0 draw at home against Crystal Palace on the weekend. They have failed to score in four of their last six games and it’s all badly fallen apart for them. They are on a four-match losing streak away from Vicarage Road in the top flight and they are winless in ten road games now. It gets worse as well because they haven’t scored in any of their last six away games. Tottenham to win to nil at Paddy Power is a pretty reasonable shout it would seem at 8/11 odds* (betting odds taken on April 24th, 2018 at 1:56 a.m.). Watford’s numbers are now at W4 D2 L11 for the season in the top flight away from home and they have produced a clean sheet in 24% of their away fixtures. As mentioned though, it has been a while since they took one. 63% of the goals they have conceded on their travels have come in the second half of matches and now only West Ham and Stoke have a worse defensive record in the Premier League this season than the Hornets.
There was a 1-1 draw at Vicarage Road between the pair of them earlier this season and that leaves Tottenham on a good stretch of twelve unbeaten games against the Hornets in all competitions. Spurs have gone W4 D1 in the last five Premier League meetings with Watford. Spurs have won all four of their previous Premier League home games against the Hornets, conceding just the one goal in that sequence.
Tottenham could do with putting a bit of cheer into their cup and they can deliver the three points here. Watford just aren’t at the races at the moment and should be there for the taking. Back the Lilywhites to deliver the three points with a clean sheet.
28th April 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Seagulls failed to win for the fourth game in a row as they lost out at Crystal Palace on the weekend. They have a comfortable buffer between themselves and the drop zone though so are going to be safe. This is another game though which may not offer up much for them. Spurs had their long unbeaten stretch snapped as they found Manchester City too hot to handle at Wembley on the weekend.
Tottenham 4/9, Draw 15/4, Brighton 7/1* (Betting Odds taken at 6:57 p.m. on April 15th, 2018)
The Seagulls have taken just the one point in their last four league games. They had a right old ding-dong battle with Crystal Palace on the weekend at Selhurst Park, losing 3-2 but showing plenty of fight. The Seagulls have been alright at home recently with a W3 D1 L1 record at the Amex going, but they are winless in two there. Overall this season they have picked up a W6 D7 L4 record for the season at home. The half time draw at bet365 for 7/5 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 6:57 p.m. on April 15th, 2018) is worth considering as Brighton have been level at the break in ten of their home fixtures this season. The Seagulls haven’t actually kept a clean sheet in any of their last seven league home games though and on average have conceded 1.4 goals per home game. They have taken a clean sheet in only 24% of their entire home games. But still with all that added up, less than half of their home games have gone above 2.5 goals so it’s worth looking under the goal line. Two-thirds of their entire matches this season have ended under 2.5 goals. Brighton have scored 64% of their home goals this season in the second half of matches.
Tottenham just didn’t get a look in at home against Manchester City on the weekend at Wembley, losing 3-1. They were a distant second best to the newly crowned Premier League champions. It snapped a fourteen match undefeated streak of form that they were on too. Their away form is still good though having put together a four-match winning streak away from Wembley, scoring at least two goals in each of their last three. Spurs are undefeated in their last eight road games in the top flight and overall this season on their travels they have produced a W10 D3 L4 record. The LIlywhites are on an eleven match scoring streak away from home and they have scored in each of their last 21 league games home and away combined. They will likely get a battle from the Seagulls and Spurs to win by a one-goal margin is at 11/4 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 6:57 p.m. on April 15th, 2018). Naturally, Harry Kane heads up the anytime goalscorer market but Christian Eriksen continues to perform so well for them at longer value. They start midweek only four points out of second place so need to keep competing.
Tottenham were 2-0 home winners over Brighton earlier this season and that is back to back wins over the Seagulls by that scoreline for them in all competitions now. That was the first Premier League meeting between the two sides and only the fifteenth meeting overall. From those previous clashes, it is Spurs who are 9-3 ahead with three drawn matches. Spurs did lose their last visit to Brighton which was back in the old Division One in 1983.
Tottenham may not have been good enough to match Man City, but they are good enough to beat most sides in the league. Look for some kind of response to come from the Lilywhites, but maybe a win by only the one-goal margin.
15th April 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Man City are going to have to wait just a little bit longer now to get the league title in their hands. They blew their lines at home against rivals Manchester United last weekend. This is no easy game for them either so can they avoid losing back to back league fixtures? Spurs are still buzzing along on a fantastic winning streak and won’t be fearing the Citizens at the moment.
Tottenham 6/4, Man City 13/8, Draw 5/2* (Betting Odds taken at 11:22 p.m. on April 9th, 2018)
It has been imperious form from Tottenham lately who are on a six-match winning streak of league form. The goals are flowing well for them as well having netted at least two in each of their last four games. They haven’t picked up a clean sheet in any of their last three and keeper Hugo Lloris has been guilty of a few mistakes. Both teams to score at 8/15 odds with bet365* (Betting Odds taken at 3:50 p.m. on April 10th, 2018) looks like a viable option for this high profile fixture. The Lilywhites have superb home form, unbeaten in fourteen at Wembley and currently riding a four-match winning streak there with each of those four wins coming with a clean sheet. But this is Man City visiting so in the bet365 correct score market a Tottenham 2-1 option is a good solid 10/1 poke* (Betting Odds taken at 3:50 p.m. on April 10th, 2018). Spurs really need the points to keep their top two finish dreams alive and it would heap more frustration on City.
The Citizens suffered that crazy 2-3 home loss against Man Utd last weekend. After sitting 2-0 up at half time, no-one saw that second half collapse coming. They were just 45 minutes away from the title and now they have to wait. Man City’s away form still makes for some good reading though as they are W13 D2 L1 for the season. The Citizens are on a three-match winning streak on the road, having scored at least two goals in each of those wins and conceding just the one goal in total. Manchester City have produced 37 in their 16 away games this season and have conceded just the eleven. They have scored in each of their last five away games. The two losses that they suffered in the top flight this season, their victors needed at least three goals to topple them. That says a lot about City. Over 3.5 goals at bet365 is at 6/4 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 3:50 p.m. on April 10th, 2018) and worth a look. More than half of City’s away victories in the Premier League this season have been by a margin of at least two goals.
Man City romped to a 4-1 home success over Spurs earlier in the season. That snapped a four-match winless streak of form that they were on against Spurs though (D1 L3). So Spurs are ahead in the recent head to head meetings and the Lilywhites, albeit at White Hart Lane, have won their last two home league fixtures against the Citizens. Six of the last nine have produced at least four goals.
Tottenham to win: A win for Spurs could a least prolong City’s inevitable title just a little bit longer. City have been exposed recently by Liverpool and Man Utd and Spurs will know how to get the visitors rattled. Home win.
12th April 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Stoke’s season is in big danger of ending on a real sour note now. Three defeats on the bounce has left them three points clear of safety (four realistically with goal difference) and they get another tough game here. Spurs produced some fine form to snap their long winless streak at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea last weekend to pretty much lock down a top-four finish and to carry on in fantastic form.
Tottenham 3/10, Draw 4/1, Stoke 17/2* (Betting Odds taken at 7:32 p.m. on April 2nd, 2018)
The Potters start the weekend second from bottom and badly needing a change of fortunes. They are winless in each now (D4 L4) and are running on a three match losing streak heading into this one with Spurs. They have taken to back to back home defeats (against Everton and Man City ) and they have failed to win any of their last four on home soil, collecting only the two points in that sequence. It’s hard to see them defying the big odds on them in this one too and producing a win. Stoke have only come up with the two goals in their last four home fixtures and have failed to score in half of their last six at home. Tottenham to win to nil at Paddy Power does appear to be a good option out of the gate for 21/20 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 4:51 p.m. on April 3rd, 2018). Stoke have netted 17 goals in 16 home games so shouldn’t be a huge threat and they have conceded at least two goals in each of their last two home games. Clean sheets have been few and far between for them this season with one earned in just 19% of home fixtures.
Spurs took a win over London rivals Chelsea last weekend to move on to a five-match winning streak. They haven’t lost since a 4-1 defeat against Man City last December. Away from home, they are on a three-match winning streak, scoring eight goals in that sequence as well. Overall this season the Lilywhites are W9 D3 L4 on the road and they are cruising along at the moment. They even got the boost of having Harry Kane return from injury far sooner than expected as he put in a subs appearance against Chelsea. Hard to know how much he is going to be risked, by Son Heung-Min has been in pretty good scoring form lately and is a good proportion at even money* (Betting Odds taken at 4:51 p.m. on April 3rd, 2018) in the Paddy Power anytime scorer market. Spurs average just about two goals per game away from home this season and have scored in each of their last ten away from Wembley and in 88% of their away games in total this season. Only Manchester City are currently carrying better form than Spurs are in the top flight and only the Citizens have a better away record this term than the Lilywhites do.
Spurs eased their way to a 5-1 home success over Stoke earlier in the season and that was the fourth Premier League game in a row in which they have scored at least four goals against the Potters. Tottenham are on a four-match winning streak and are unbeaten in five against the Potters now. They have won their last two trips to the Bet365 Stadium 4-0.
Tottenham showed a lot of character and class last weekend to beat Chelsea, even if they rode their luck a bit at the back in the first half. Stoke won’t trouble them too much at all and this should be relatively easy pickings for them.

Chelsea v Tottenham Premier League Preview, 1st April 4.00pm
A new month brings a heavyweight duel at Stamford bridge between London rivals Chelsea and Tottenham. This could have big implications in the race for a top-four finish. Spurs are holding down fourth heading into the weekend, five points clear of their rivals, so a win for the Lilywhites in this one would pretty much close the door on the Blues. Can Chelsea lift themselves for a big home performance? They need to.
Chelsea 5/4, Tottenham 11/5, Draw 23/10* (Betting Odds taken at 03:42 p.m. on March 27th, 2018)
Big pressure game for Chelsea now which is a huge opportunity to try and edge their way back to the Champions League qualification places. They have a five-point gap to make up to Spurs in order to achieve that, but a win here would put good wind in their sails. Chelsea have won their last two league outings at Stamford Bridge, beating West Brom and Crystal Palace. Overall the Blues are W10 D2 L3 for the season and they have averaged 1.7 goals per game on home soil. So while their overall form recently hasn’t been great, they do look a solid home side. Each of their last three home games have made it over 2.5 goals and that is 21/20 at bet365* (Betting Odds taken at 03:42 p.m. on March 27th, 2018) to happen in this one as well. If the Blues don’t make the most of this one then their chances of making it to the Champions League next season through the league route are going to be severely hampered. Olivier Giroud is the 13/8 favourite in the anytime goalscorer market for the game, but Willian out at 5/2* (Betting Odds taken at 03:42 p.m. on March 27th, 2018) is always a tempting proposition and has been in great form. The Blues are currently sixteen points worse off than they were at this stage last season. The pressure is on, especially with only two wins in eight previous games this season against top-six opponents.
The Blues have shown some vulnerabilities at the back and with Spurs (even without Kane) a threat, then the both teams to score option at bet365 for 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 03:42 p.m. on March 27th, 2018) is still looking viable. Spurs can take a lot of pressure off of themselves with a win in this one which would pretty much lock down a top-four finish. The Lilywhites are in great form at the moment with a four-match winning streak going and no defeat since a loss to Man City back on December 16th. Away from home this season in the top flight the Lilywhites are W8 D3 L4 and they have won four of their last six on their travels (D2). Spurs have averaged 1.9 goals per game away from home this season and have been their usual solid selves at the back, taking a clean sheet in 40% of their road games. Spurs have scored in each of their last eighteen league games now and are unbeaten in twelve in total home and away. They are missing Kane, but are still such a tight, well-knitted group of players.
The Blues did take a win at Wembley earlier this season against the Lilywhites and have won three of the last four meetings against their rivals in all competitions. They collected a 2-1 success in his corresponding fixture last season and are defending a proud unbeaten home record against Spurs in the Premier League. Chelsea have won three of their last four (D1) league home games against Spurs and overall home and away in all competitions are W4 D2 L1 in their last seven against them.
Chelsea do have a bit of home form going against the Lilywhites and they can take advantage of the visitors being without Kane. The Blues have to raise their game, leave everything out there in this one to get some pressure back on the Lilywhites for a top-four finish.
28th March 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Tottenham get all of their focus back on a top-four finish in the league now after crashing out of the Champions League in midweek. They will get a good test out on the road against a Bournemouth side who have improved considerably in the new year. The Cherries go into the weekend six points clear of safety after a good revival.
Tottenham 1/2, Draw 13/4, Bournemouth 5/1* (Betting Odds taken at 04:45 a.m. on March 8th, 2018)
Bournemouth have shaped up well since Christmas really having lost just once since Boxing Day in the league. So they are ticking over nicely and look pretty solid to survive against relegation. They are without a win in three though, drawing their last two against Newcastle and Leicester. They have great form at the Vitality going on at the moment though with an unbeaten W3 D2 record going and they have scored at least two goals in each of those home fixtures as well. Over 3.5 goals at Ladbrokes for 29/20 odds* (betting odds taken on March 8th, 2018 at 5:35 p.m.) may well be worth a little flutter in this one because while the Cherries are scoring well, they haven’t taken a clean sheet in their last eight home fixtures. Plus their last six games at home have gone above the 2.5 goal line and both teams to score looks a really viable option to roll with in the game. The Cherries have upped their average to 1.4 goals per game at home this season and 70% of those have come after the halftime break. So this should be a really good contest and with Bournemouth having scored in each of eir last ten games home and away in the top flight, they could put up quite a good challenge to the Lilywhites in this one.
Tottenham saw their Champions League dreams ruined in midweek by Juventus so now it is back to the business to try to lock down a top-four finish in the Premier League. They haven’t lost since a defeat against Man City back in mid-December and they are on a three-match winning streak at the moment in the league, each with a clean sheet. Away from home, they are unbeaten in their last five (D3 D2) part of an overall W7 D3 L4 away record that they have posted this term. Spurs are up at an average of 1.7 goals per game away from Wembley and they have scored in each of their last eight on the road and in each of their last seventeen Premier League games home and away combined. Harry Kane is naturally the Ladbrokes first goalscorer favourite at 5/2* (betting odds taken on March 8th, 2018 at 5:35 p.m.) and the Lilywhites have scored in 86% of their away matches. They start the weekend in fourth place, five points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea so have a nice cushion. They just have to make sure that there is no Champions League hangover.
Spurs edged their way to a 1-0 home victory over the Cherries earlier in the season and that is a big five-match unbeaten streak of form that they are on against Bournemouth. The Cherries have failed to score in any of their last four against Spurs now (W3 D1). The Cherries did hold out for a 0-0 draw in this corresponding fixture last season. This is just the seventh game between them with Spurs 4-1 ahead with one drawn game.
This has the makings of being an entertaining clash down on the south coast. Tottenham’s European dreams were left in tatters in the week and may struggle to lift themselves in this one. This is a good chance for Bournemouth to sneak a point.
9th March 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
This is a home game that the Lilywhites will be expected to win. Spurs have been going along in fine form and moved up into the top four last weekend at the expense of Chelsea. They have their big duel with Juventus coming up in midweek but should still deliver here. Huddersfield have landed back to back wins to ease their relegation concerns but will do really well to get anything out of this tough away game.
Tottenham 2/11, Draw 11/2, Huddersfield 16/1* (Betting Odds taken at 05:15 a.m. on February 26th, 2018)
Spurs are on a ten-match undefeated streak of form in the league at the moment and have won their last two back to back, both by a 1-0 scoreline. In the Coral correct score market a Tottenham 1-0 is at 13/2 with the Tottenham 2-0 the shortest priced option at 24/5* (Betting Odds taken at 10:31 p.m. on February 26th, 2018). Spurs are on a three-match winning streak at home and they are W6 D1 in their last seven at Wembley in the Premier League, so it has been fantastic form from them. They have taken a clean sheet in each of their last three as well and Tottenham to win to nil at Coral has to represent a nice bit of value at 3/4 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 10:31 p.m. on February 26th, 2018). Spurs have scored 29 goals in their 14 home games so far this season and have conceded just an average of 0.6 goals per game. Harry Kane is up to 24 league goals for the season with eleven of those coming at home.
The Terriers have burst into form with back to back league wins, scoring six goals across those two games. That leaves them three points clear of the drop zone. They have failed to take a clean sheet in any of their last seven league outings now so they still have plenty of tightening up at the back to pull off. Their away form this season is W3 D2 L9 and their win at West Brom last weekend snapped a three-match losing streak that they were on away from home without having scored a single goal. Overall the Terriers have scored just the ten goals in their fourteen away games this and they have conceded an average of exactly two goals per game. 82% of their goals conceded on their travels this season have come in the second half of matches. That’s 23 of their 28 goals conceded after the half time break. Even though they have come into a nice bit of from this is tough, tough away game and a Tottenham/Tottenham half time/full time bet at Coral for 7/10 odds will have appeal* (Betting Odds taken at 10:31 p.m. on February 26th, 2018).
Spurs romped to a 4-0 win out at the John Smiths Stadium earlier this season and that was the first meeting between the two in any competition since a League Cup clash in 1973. So there is little head to head to draw upon.
Tottenham are clear favourites for the three points in this one and they are value to back to get them all with a clean sheet too. Huddersfield have done well to get their recent wins, but unlikely to come up short again against a quality side like Spurs.
