In our OddsDigger Bournemouth vs Tottenham Hotspur FC preview this week, we analyse a Premier League duel involving teams with very different expectations for the final ten league games of the season. The Cherries are just six points clear of the drop zone and with their safety not yet confirmed, they will be fighting tooth and nail to put more points on the board. Spurs are one of the favourites to make the top four, but they still have work to do.
The Cherries have lost just once in six games prior to today’s Bournemouth vs Tottenham Hotspur FC betting tips. Bournemouth are looking to end a run of three without a win, however, having failed to beat any of Huddersfield, Newcastle or Leicester. The 4-1 thumping loss at Huddersfield would have been particularly galling for manager Eddie Howe. The Cherries can jump to ninth spot with a win this weekend.
Tottenham Hotspur have a monumental game against Juventus to navigate this week before they take a trip to England’s south coast. Their Champions League last 16 second leg tie against the Italians is sure to have an effect on the Spurs players’ energy levels. Mauricio Pochettino may have to shuffle his pack a little this weekend to keep things fresh as Spurs look to extend their seventeen match unbeaten run. Make sure to read our English football betting tips in the next section.
While the mid-week Champions League tussle with Juventus is certainly a factor, Pochettino’s men are still favourites to come out on top in our Bournemouth vs Tottenham Hotspur FC bets. Spurs have been playing with real authority since December and they are currently in the midst of a seventeen game unbeaten sequence.
The Londoners have only won 50% of their fourteen away fixtures in the Premiership in 2017/18, though that less than perfect record can be offset by their fantastic head-to-head results against the Cherries. Spurs have beaten their rivals in four of their last five meetings with them, including this season’s earlier encounter. Christian Eriksen did the damage that day in a 1-0 win for Spurs.
The Cherries have a habit of making life hard for the big teams at Dean Court and they haven’t lost any of their last six games there. However, they have won only five of their fourteen EPL fixtures at home in total this season. Pochettino’s men haven’t lost any of their last five away games in the league and we recommend you back them to add another win to that run using the fabulously priced Premier League football betting odds at Sunbets. The value available there is unmatched by any other bookmaker.
With four goals in his last six games, England international Harry Kane’s form made him an easy choice for inclusion in today’s Bournemouth vs Tottenham Hotspur FC predictions. Kane has scored twenty-four goals in twenty-eight Premier League appearances this season, making him Spurs top goalscorer by some distance. He will be looking to maintain his high strike rate this weekend as he battles it out with Liverpool’s Mo Salah for the Golden Boot.
Kane is already well on track to surpass his career best tally of twenty-nine Premiership goals in a season. He hit that tremendous total in 2016/17, averaging just about a goal per game during a prolific campaign. Kane also has a wonderful personal goal getting record against the Cherries.
Spurs’ talismanic centre forward has netted six times in his last five appearances against Bournemouth and Eddie Howe must be sick of the sight of him. Kane always seems to come up with the goods in the most difficult circumstances for his team. He has now scored in six straight away games, helping his team to secure some big results. Unibet’s odds for Kane to score this weekend are too good to ignore. Our advice is to take them while they are still available.
