Tottenham moved into fourth spot at the weekend courtesy of a 2-0 victory over beleaguered Blackburn and Ladbrokes rate Harry Redknapp’s troops at even money to make it back-to-back wins by getting the better of another of the Premier League strugglers, Bolton.
The Trotters are 16/5 with William Hill to boost their survival hopes and it’s 11/4 via Boylesports to finish all square but having rediscovered their form against Rovers, Spurs are hard to oppose at the Reebok Stadium, where the hosts have lost ten of their 17 matches.
Nevertheless, the plight of Owen Coyle’s men means they are desperate for points and they can ensure that the visitors don’t run away with it any point. Blue Square’s 3/1 for Tottenham to shade it by one stands out then while Skybet a slightly more attractive 4/1 for Redknapp’s charges to prevail despite a drawn first period.
Chelsea are just 11/20 (BetVictor) to further dent Newcastle’s top four chances by sending the Magpies home from Stamford Bridge empty-handed but Alan Pardew’s charges will be determined to bounce back from last weekend’s 4-0 defeat at Wigan and they could catch their opponents cold given that the Blues are just days away from an FA Cup final.
Draw/Spurs in HT/FT betting – 4/1 (Skybet)
