Spurs v Bournemouth – Saturday 12:30, Sky Sports 1
Spurs eased past Watford last time out with a 4-0 victory at home, their seventh win on the bounce across all competitions, during which time they’ve scored 24 goals. Mauricio Pochettino’s men have been in stunning form at White Hart Lane this season where they remain unbeaten, winning each of their last 11 whilst keeping seven clean sheets.
Bournemouth suffered a 3-1 home defeat to Chelsea last weekend, but prior to that difficult challenge the Cherries had gone unbeaten in five: their impressive draws against Man Utd, Southampton and Liverpool were supplemented with victories over West Ham and Swansea. However, they haven’t won on the road since the end of 2016, with their record over their last 10 away a poor W1-D3-L6, hence why Spurs are as short as 1.3 to win.
Bournemouth have conceded at least three goals in four of their six away games against top-seven sides this season, and Spurs have shown a clinical edge when hosting bottom half-sides. They’ve won eight of nine such matches, covering the –2 handicap line in three of the last five, and with Eddie Howe’s men holding the third-worst defensive record in the division we’re backing Spurs to achieve such a feat again.
