Premier League betting – Spurs vs Sunderland
Tottenham vs Sunderland betting preview
Tottenham Form: LWWDLL
Tottenham suffered a Champions League hangover on Saturday lunch time as they went down 4-2 at Bolton Wanderers. Luckily for Harry Redknapp his side have the perfect opportunity to return to winning ways on Tuesday when they face Sunderland. Although they will have to improve their leaky defence if they are going to, as they haven’t kept a clean sheet in the league since the opening day draw with Man City. Their top scorer Rafael Van Der Vaart should be back for the visit of Sunderland and the Dutch midfielder has scored in every other game this season. Unfortunately they will still be without Jermain Defoe, Ledley King and Michael Dawson who continue their comeback from injury. With goals definitely being the theme for Spurs in the last few weeks there is no surprise that a 0-0 draw is priced at 10-1 on Bet365.
Sunderland Form: DDDWLW
Sunderland bounced back at the weekend from their 5-1 thrashing against Newcastle with a solid 2-0 home victory over Stoke City. Thanks to two goals on his first league start for summer signing Asamoah Gyan, who looks a great bet at 9/1 with William Hill to open the scoring. This incidentally was the first time the Black Cats have won by a two goal margin in the league this season, although it will be a different story on Tuesday with Sunderland best priced at 40/1 with Paddy Power to repeat that feat. While Darren Bent returns to his former club again best priced at 15/2 to be the last goal scorer with William Hill. Steve Bruce will still be without Fraiser Campbell and David Meyler but Titus Bramble is back after a ban and Darren Bent should return after missing the weekend through illness.
Match Prediction Draw at best odds 11/5 with Bet365 – £200 in free bets
Tottenham and Sunderland go into the Tuesday’s game both on 15 points with the same goal difference. Sunderland will have a bit more momentum after finding some form over the weekend, while we can’t help but feel this game will come too quickly for most of Spurs injured players as their extra Champions League games start to catch up with them. The Black Cats have also managed to pull out some good performances against the bigger sides this season drawing with Arsenal and Manchester United, whilst beating Manchester City. There’s plenty of value in the market for the draw, with Bet 365 offering 11/4, but even more so with a 1-1 correct score best priced at 7/1 with William Hill.
