Tottenham Hotspur v Bournemouth Predictions, Betting Tips and Previews
October 10, 2017
Wembley Stadium - Premier League
Tottenham are still to win at Wembley in the Premier League but are red hot favourites to break their duck against Bournemouth. Eddie Howe’s side are improving though and can’t be ruled out.
Spurs have won three and drawn one of the Premier League games between the clubs. At home they have won 4-0and 3-0 but that was at White Hart Lane. Only in an FA Cup shock 61 years ago have Bournemouth come out on top in this fixture.
Spurs finally have Danny Rose nearing fitness but Ben Davies has excelled at left back and won’t be easily shifted. Spurs still have plenty of injury problems though with Mousa Dembele, ankle, Erik Lamela, knee, and Victor Wanyama, hip, all still unlikely to be available. Serge Aurier is free from suspension and Dele Alli can also play althoughhe is currently suspended in European competition.
Bournemouth’s Josh King returned early from international duty with Norway struggling with an injury while Tyrone Mings, Adam Federici and Ryan Fraser are all ruled out although Callum Wilson could be available.
Tottenham Hotspur v Bournemouth Preview and Predictions
Spurs are 2/9 to win with Bournemouth 17/1 and the odds on a draw being 69/10.
The odds are shorter on Spurs to win 6-0 (45/1) than for Bournemouth to win 1-0 (55/1) so while Spurs may well win after winning their last two cup games at their temporary home it may well be worth a bet on Tottenham’s Premier League Wembley wobbles continuing against improving Bournemouth.
The Cherries are second bottom but that was down to a woeful start where they lost their opening four league games. Since then they won two – including a cup tie on penalties – drawn one and lost narrowly at Everton. With Jermain Defoe due a goal and desperate to impress against his old club odds of 17/1 on a win for the Cherries have to be a temptation.
A Tottenham triumph is more likely though and if that proves to be the case the chances are the main man behind it will be Harry Kane. He is 21/10 to score two or more goals and 8/1 to score a hat trick. Surely as good as any striker in the world at the moment everything he touches turns to gold with the recent England captain having scored 15 goals in his last 13 games.
Harry Kane to score the first goal at 9/5
With the form Kane is in, a bet on him every week for the first goal is likely to pay dividends.
Bournemouth to win at 17/1.
Odds such as these are worth a punt. Spurs may well win but the Cherries were unlucky in the one game of the last four that they lost.
