Here are our top Bournemouth v Tottenham betting tips. The Cherries are another side who can relax in the final few weeks of the season as they have escaped the danger of relegation, going into the weekend sitting 14th with 42 points on the board.
They have struggled for consistency of late and look to have one eye on their summer break. One win, three defeats and a draw has sucked the home side down the pecking order but a strong finish to the campaign could see them end as high as 11th, with West Ham currently four points better off and not exactly setting the heather alight themselves in Stratford.
Looking In-Depth at Bournemouth v Tottenham
Bournemouth followed a disappointing defeat at home to the already relegated Fulham with a thrilling 3-3 draw away to Southampton, a draw that secured their Premier League survival. Gosling scored his employers first on 20 minutes and that was followed by a couple of goals from the impressive Wilson, including one on 86 minutes that drew the clubs level. Bookies don’t fancy the home win much but if you want an interest bet at decent odds, you’ll get 10/3 at Bet365, the draw trading 11/4 with the same firm.
Spurs Holding On
Despite shaping as a side who could put pressure on the league leaders earlier in the year, a poor run of form has ended any hopes Tottenham had of winning the title. That leaves them to concentrate on Champions League glory as well as securing their place in the top-four, banking themselves a spot in Europe’s elite next term. Spurs start the weekend in third, 11 points behind second placed Liverpool, two ahead of Chelsea in fourth and five ahead of Man Utd down in sixth.
A strong finish to the fixture list is needed, while keeping their Champions League challenge in mind, meaning Pochettino will be forced to use all the resources available to him. Spurs don’t have a particularly big squad to call upon and a few key injuries at this time of year could hamper their chances. They’ve lost two of their last three, including a 1-0 defeat at home to London rivals West Ham last weekend. Antonio scored the only goal of the afternoon, Pochettino telling fans his side is struggling with the stress and fatigue caused by a hectic fixture list. This is their second game of the week and, with that in mind, we’ll take the draw. 888Sport handing out 3/4 for the away win.
