Sportingbet, our official betting partners, give us the rundown on some of the markets on offer ahead of Saturday's trip to Chelsea...

After the frustration of last week’s meeting with West Brom, the task of finishing in the top four is made tougher still by a trip to Chelsea this weekend as Tottenham Hotspur embark on arguably their toughest run-in for many a season.

Spurs are considered long odds to take anything away from Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening, with the hosts 1/2 to continue their scintillating form of late and Harry Redknapp’s men available at 11/2 to snatch the three points.

This fixture is followed by a home clash with Blackpool before trips to the City of Manchester Stadium and Anfield, so if the Champions League adventure is to enjoy a sequel, the Lilywhites may yet need the 13/5 draw as a minimum.

It does mean fans could yet enjoy a nice payday if Spurs can pull off the win, and you can still back your team with a +1 goal handicap at 6/4.

You can get the same price for an away draw or win, giving you twice the chance to celebrate with a 6/4 return on offer in the Double Chance market.

Other routes to profit could be unearthed in the Double Result market, where Chelsea to lead at half-time and the game to end in a draw pays a chunky 18/1.

Meanwhile, Gareth Bale is to be congratulated on his PFA Player of the Year award, and the growing reputation of the young winger will only be enhanced if he can find the net in front of the Sky Sports cameras. Check out thelatest goalscorer odds if you fancy him to shine when it matters most.

You can still win tickets to the next game against Blackpool at the Lane when you visit the Sportingbet Spurs Zone. There’s also the chance to play at Spurs Lodge or even White Hart Lane, so make sure your name is in the hat at www.spurszone.co.uk.

Odds correct at time of writing.
