The Black Cats have only won three times in the league all season – twice away from home.
They are, however, particularly well drilled and will arrive hopeful of taking at least a point thanks to their organisational skills.
Such an outcome would likely be viewed as two points dropped by Mauricio Pochettino and a home win is available at 3/5.
Last season this fixture ended in a 5-1 defeat for the visitors and, while few would predict another such one-sided win, a Spurs victory from a -1.5 position is a tempting 17/10.
Away from home in the Barclays Premier League, Sunderland have failed to score six times and a Spurs win to nil is priced at 89/50.
Harry Kane continues to find himself among the goals at present and the 77/20 available for the England Under-21 youngster to break the deadlock here offers potential.
