Home Bournemouth

11/03/2018 Kick Off:  4:00 pm Dean Court V Predicted Score:1 - 3

Away Tottenham Hotspur

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Goals. The Cherries have scored six in their last four while Spurs have found the back of the net a healthy 10 times in their last four in all competitions. Both teams to score in the first half is 3/1 and with a history of fast starts between the pair, it could be a very profitable opening 45 minutes.

2 We fancy:

Tottenham to win and both teams to score at 15/8, and that could be the bet of the day. Despite the blow of their midweek Champions League loss against Juventus, Tottenham’s record against the Cherries and recent league form makes them a daunting prospect for anyone to face.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Tottenham to win 5-1 is 40/1, and why not at that price? They did it at the Vitality in 2015 and with Harry Kane seeking to break his own goalscoring record for a season, few would be surprised to see a wounded Spurs romp home to another three points.

Bournemouth's Last Six:

Won: 2 Drawn: 3 Lost: 1

After back to back draws, Eddie Howe will be eager for the three points but will have to vie for the points without the trio of Jordan Ibe, Marc Pugh and Tyrone Mings who will all be absent due to injury.

Tottenham Hotspur's Last Six:

Won: 3 Drawn: 2 Lost: 1

Mauricio Pochettino will look to bounce back with a nearly full strength squad to choose from. Contract rebel Toby Alderweireld continues to be the only doubt as a niggling hamstring injury leaves Poch with a difficult decision to make.

Bournemouth vs Tottenham Hotspur Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Harry Kane was unable to get the better of Giorgio Chiellini as Tottenham were dumped out of the Champions League by Juventus, but he’s still the Premier League’s joint-top scorer

Champions League defeat for Spurs was a blow but now it is back to the bread and butter of Premier League action this Sunday. How Tottenham react against Bournemouth will be a telling feature as to how the remainder of the season pans out, but do not expect the Cherries to roll out the red carpet. Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has worked wonders yet again and looks like he will keep the Cherries up for another crack at top flight life.

Bournemouth are 5/1 to win and for a side that have a 36% home win rate this season, it may be worth a look. Although the Cherries have never beaten Tottenham home or away in the Premier League era, now might be the time as Spurs heads are currently hanging low.

Tottenham are 1/2 to win and it is easy to see why that will see plenty of action. Spurs have won five of the last six meetings between the two with the only other result being a draw. Two of those victories came at the Vitality so much depends on the attitude of the away side.

The draw is 10/3 and that will certainly suit the home team where any points are valuable. However, neither side have been draw specialists this season meaning a victor is a more likely scenario.

Over 3.5 goals is 11/8 and if there is one thing these two provide when they meet up, it is plenty of goalmouth action. In three of the last six encounters between the two, four or more goals have been scored and that looks like occurring once again.

A goal to be scored before the 25 minute mark is 5/6 and that looks real value. In three of the last five games that exact scenario has occurred and twice a goal has been scored in the first minute.

Predicted Score: Bournemouth 1 - 3 Tottenham Hotspur
