Cats to Level Spurs at 22/1
Saturday 16/01/2016 12.45pm
Tottenham Hotspur v Sunderland is the first of seven Premier League games this Saturday and the first of our correct score betting tips. We had another big priced winner at 22/1 on Wednesday in the Chelsea v West Brom match. Without further ado lets get down to business and focus on the chances of Spurs against the Black Cats.
Swansea was the ideal match at the correct time for Sam Allardyce at Sunderland however the reverse is most likely the case when it comes to Saturday's Tottenham Hotspur v Sunderland fixture at White Hart Lane.
Mauricio Pochettino and his team will be seeking to recuperate from a defeat by Leicester. That put a spanner in the works for their top-four aspirations and the Black Cats might just pay the cost. Spurs will be targeting maximum points from this encounter and they are duly priced up at long odds on at 4/11 by Bet365 to get the job done. Bet365 Odds subject to change.
Sunderland and Jermain Defoe were provided an assisting hand by the downtrodden Swans however they can anticipate no such presents from a Spurs team that has been developed on the foundations of a strong back five. They are naturally short in the odds as mentioned to win the game in 90 minutes however the chances about a Spurs win to nil does take the eye regardless of proof to the contrary. It's been seven games (in all competitions) since the Cats last scored on the road. It's worth noting though that they have faced formidable opposition in Man City, Chelsea, Arsenal (two times) and Everton while Spurs have only won two times to nil at home all season. The Spurs defence is the meanest in the League and the side has the capability to control a Sunderland side that might be delegated to feed off scraps.
Every point and every game counts for Allardyce however they entertain Bournemouth next weekend which will be a game that the canny escape artist will have targeted as a much better possibility of gathering three points.
Amidst that torrid away run, Sunderland lost 3-1 three times and 4-1, correct scorelines that look well worth a look for our betting tips. Spurs definitely have the historical edge in past meetings between the two teams and have won eight and lost none of their last 11 Premier League games against Sunderland. As such I am tempted by the 2-2 at 22/1 and 2-1 at 17/2 to Tottenham as the correct score tips for this one.
