Spurs look a rock solid bet at a top priced 1.5 with Betfred
to register a comfortable success over Wigan at White Hart Lane this weekend.
They have won four and lost just one of the last six league meetings with Wigan and famously recorded their biggest ever Premier League win in this fixture with a 9-1 victory in November 2009.
Andre Villas-Boas’ side have also lost just three of their last 23 league home games,and have scored at least two goals in their last six.
By stark contrast their opponents have been really struggling to find any sort of form and have a terrible record on their travels.
It really should be a case of how many Spurs win by, and I fancy them to do so to nil at odds of 2.8 with Coral.
So who is going to score first and get the ball rolling?
Well, the two players to concentrate on in my book have to be Jermaine Defoe and Gareth Bale.
Defoe has scored 11 goals in 10 Premier League games against Wigan and is a 4.5 chance with Ladbrokes
and Paddy Power
to net the opener and a
That looks a bit short, and better value could be Bale at 7 with Blue Square
The Welshman has scored in six of his last 11 games for club and country and first in each of his last two.
That makes his odds look on the large side, and he also looks a decent punt at a standout 2.88 with Stan James
in the anytime goalscorer market.
I fancy Spurs to run out easy 3-0 winners, and that outcome is priced up at 11 with Coral
and William Hill
