It’s sixth against seventh in this one, with Burnley surprisingly starting the game a point ahead of Saturday’s visitors. No team has conceded fewer goals than the Clarets this season, while only Mohamed Salah has more Premier League goals than Harry Kane. The result of this one could come down to how well the Burnley backline deals with the deadly England striker.
Burnley are 13/2 to pick up the victory and extend their lead over Tottenham to four points. Given the resources that Clarets boss Dyche has at his disposal, it’d be some accomplishment as we reach the halfway stage of the campaign. Any success the hosts have will be based on a solid defensive display, as they look to contain Spurs and hit them with a sucker punch as they did in the first meeting at Wembley.
Tottenham are 8/15 favourites, which doesn’t look like the most tempting of prices bearing in mind Burnley’s fantastic form. There are other ways to get value out of your bets on the away win, as Spurs look to capitalise on the fact that top four rivals Arsenal and Liverpool play each other on Friday night. Pochettino will look for a reaction after his side was ripped to shreds at times against City.
The draw is 7/2 and could be a decent shout for this one. It would be something of an opportunity lost for both sides, but Burnley are tough to break down and could easily frustrate Tottenham. The goalless draw’s priced at 10/1, while a 1-1 stalemate is 15/2.
Wood is 33/10 to score anytime on Saturday, after the New Zealander bagged that important equaliser earlier in the season. Burnley don’t score many, but Wood’s as likely as anyone to find the net and register his fifth Premier League goal of the campaign. If you think he’ll score the first goal of the game, that’s 15/2.
Kane is the 13/5 favourite to open the scoring, and justifiably so. The England striker averages a goal every 124 minutes this season, but as he’s failed to score in his last two appearances, he’s well overdue a goal and 17/20 to score anytime.
