Sportingbet Preview: Sunderland

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

Another tough venue awaits Tottenham on their Premier League travels this weekend, but having earned a gritty victory at Blackburn on their last away day, Sunderland’s Stadium of Light must seem less intimidating to Harry and company.

Spurs followed up their Ewood Park success with a last minute winner to beat Bolton, of course, and the dramatic events at White Hart Lane contributed to one of the most exciting ever weekends of Premier League football.

With a record goal haul on the Saturday alone, it was a great weekend for punters taking advantage of Goal Rush! The Sportingbet promotion returned thousands in stakes on the First Goalscorer, Anytime Goalscorer, Correct Score and Scorecast markets, and this week Red Card Refunds could yet do the same.

Simply back your tip in any of the above markets and if a player is sent to an early bath, losing punts will be revived as a free bet worth up to £25.

Tottenham are narrow favourites to win their ESPN clash with the Black Cats, with 6/4 on offer at official betting partner Sportingbet.

Sunderland have a fine record to defend however, having taken points off Man United, Arsenal and Man City already this season, and are 8/5 for another victory in front of their own fans. The draw meanwhile, is an 11/5 shot.

A group of Sportingbet Spurs Zone winners made the trip to Spurs Lodge this week, where they met the likes of Gareth Bale, Jermaine Jenas and David Beckham himself!

Check out the pictures in the Up Close section then enter Get Close to win a place on the next visit, a 1982 shirt signed by Ossie Ardiles, or directors’ box tickets to Wolves v Spurs.

Meanwhile, the Sportingbet Podcast is back for another week of Premier League previews, horse racing tips and Six Nations betting guidance, plus it’s the last chance to win a £50 Free Bet courtesy of former England striker Steve Bull. Tune in today!
