As those of you who have read my match preview will know, I expect Tottenham will beat Hull quite comfortably.
The punters at Betfair agree, making Tottenham the 7/25 favourites, with the draw at 5/1 and Hull the 12/1 outsiders.
These odds on the home win are a little stingy. Let’s face it, this is Spurs we’re talking about and therefore no result is an absolute surprise. Better value can be found in the half time/full time market, where Tottenham/Tottenham is 4/5. Of the 9 games that we have won at home this season, we were leading at half time in 8 of them.
In the correct score market, I’d recommend looking at a comprehensive win, with 3-0 to Spurs at 8/1, 3-1 at 11/1, 4-0 at 13/1 and 4-1 at 35/2.
Hull do pose a major threat at set-pieces, which along with our goal power, makes the 3/5 available for over 2.5 goals a decent bet.
In the first goalscorer markets, Defoe lead the way at 4/1, with Keane and Crouch at 5/1. Kranjcar represents good value at 8/1 considering his recent form.
Recommended Bet: Tottenham to be winning at half time/full time at 4/5.
