Spurs take on London rivals Chelsea at White Hart Lane this weekend, and in what promises to be a tough encounter are 2.6 chances withBetfred and Blue Square to triumph.
Their record in home Premier League games against fellow London clubs reads played 20, won 13, drawn seven since they lost to Arsenal in 2007 and they come into this unbeaten since losing their first game of the season at Newcastle.
The visitors have also not won on their last six league trips to White Hart Lane, but they did register a 5-1 success at the ground in the FA Cup last season.
That’s enough to suggest that Spurs are a bit of value to win this, especially judged on their 3-2 away win over Manchester United at Old Trafford where they showed excellent resilience to hold on.
Jermaine Defoe is the favourite with the bookies to open the scoring and can be backed at a 7.5 with Ladbrokes.
Gareth Bale also looks a bit of value in the same market at 10 with Ladbrokes, and the 4.33 on offer with Blue Square about him netting anytime is well worth considering given that he is as short as 2.88 elsewhere.
