Chelsea vs Spurs - betting preview with Betfred
07 March 2014|Tottenham Hotspur
Chelsea have moved to the top of the table on the back of a 13-game unbeaten streak, and they've not lost at home in 23 matches. Spurs, meanwhile, are still in the race for fourth and it could now be that they are chasing rivals Arsenal with Liverpool proving unstoppable.
The Blues defence has been supreme during their current run as they’ve conceded just five times. However, aside from one game against Man City, Spurs have been good defensively as well, having not conceded more than once in 10 of their last 11 games, with five clean sheets.
It looks, therefore, like we’re in line for another low-scoring affair involving Mourinho’s Chelsea against good opposition. In their nine games this season against the top seven there have been just 15 goals with five of the matches seeing fewer than two strikes. You can back another match with Under 1.5 Goals at 11/4 while Under 2.5 Goals is 10/11.
Given the expected tight nature of this match Chelsea look a little short at 4/7. 15 of their last 17 home wins have been by either one or two goal margins as they’ve rarely thrashed opponents in the manor of Liverpool or Man City.
They have won all three of their home games this season against the current top six by exactly one goal but in the previous two seasons they’ve won only three of 10 home matches against top-six finishers, and none were won by more than a single goal.
Five of the last seven meetings between these teams have also finished level and with Spurs having been very effective on the road this season they deserve to be supported on the Double Chance at 13/10 or for a safer bet on the Handicap +2.0 (you win even if they lose by one goal) at 4/9.
