Never Bet On Spurs: Tottenham Hotspur v Leeds United

Never Bet On Spurs: Tottenham Hotspur v Leeds United


It’s time for Spurs to prove that they have that ‘bouncebackability’ that Iain Dowie once went on about and get back to winning ways. That way, we might even have a chance of winning a bet on them.

The punters at Betfair have Spurs at 3/10, with the draw 9/2 and Leeds at 17/2. These aren’t the most generous odds, so if you fancy backing a Spurs win, you’ll need to look at other markets.

We can be backed at 9/10 to be winning at half time/full time, which we have managed in 8 of the 9 games which we have won at home this season. Having said that, I did also quote this statistic before the Hull game.

A 2-0 home victory is the favourite in the correct score market at 6/1, with 1-0 at 7/1 and 3-0 at 9/1. Leeds can be backed at 25/1 to pull off a repeat of their 1-0 away win at Manchester United.

Tottenham can be backed at Evens to keep a clean sheet. The possibility of Spurs going a third game with scoring, can be backed at 17/2 for a Leeds clean sheet.

The punters are obviously pretty convinced that Tottenham will get back to goalscoring form, as over 2.5 goals is the odds on favourite at 3/5, with unders at 13/10.

So who will get the goals for Spurs? Defoe is the 18/5 favourite to score first, with Crouch and Keane at 9/2. Kranjcar is decent value at 10/1, while for Leeds, Beckford is their 9/1 favourite.

Recommended Bet: Tottenham to keep a clean sheet at Evens.
