Tottenham at odds against looks an appealing prospect in the Premier League these days, even versus a Birmingham side whose victims at St. Andrew’s include Chelsea.

After Aaron Lennon earned yet another comeback victory last time out, as well as an even money payday with Sportingtbet, Spurs take their scintillating form to the Midlands priced 11/10.

The hosts have only one defeat on their own pitch this season so will be no soft touch, however, and are chalked up at 11/5 while the draw is also 11/5.

There were goals galore in the top flight last weekend, with four of the ten fixtures ensuring our Goal Rush promotion paid off with five or more strikes, and we’re laying on the same great offer this weekend.

Simply bet on the First Goalscorer, Anytime Goalscorer, Correct Score and Scorecast markets and if there are Over 4.5 Goals in the match, Sportingbet will refund losing bets up to £25!

Tottenham have made a habit of coming from behind this season, securing twice as many points from games where they concede first than those where they take the lead, and if you see the trend continuing, there’s an ideal market in our Match Specials.

Back the 11/2 for the Team that Scores First Loses or for an even bigger price, you could take a punt on the Birmingham-Tottenham half-time/full-time Double Result, which is a massive 28/1.

Jermain Defoe could be worth a bet to start finding the net again, with 8/5 available for the little hitman to register, while Luka Modric at 19/5 or Aaron Lennon 5/1 could be the one to step up in the expected absence of Rafael van der Vaart.

Don’t forget there’s plenty of great tips in the Sportingbet Podcast every week, with the current edition thumbing through the full Premier League programme, both sides of the Ashes betting and Snooker’s UK Championships.

There’s also the opportunity for you to get involved, whether it’s by chasing the £50 Free Bet, subscribing for Sportingbet’s free monthly magazine or giving us your Weekend Wager. Tune in today!

Odds correct at time of writing.
