Fulham vs Spurs - Betting preview with Betfred
04 December 2013|Tottenham Hotspur
Fulham have undergone a change in the hot seat after a disappointing start to the season and Rene Meulensteen must try and turn things around against Spurs.
Craven Cottage has been a happy hunting ground for Spurs in recent years having won this fixture in each of the past three seasons.
After finding the net twice against the champions on Sunday they will hope to pile further misery onto a Fulham defence that has conceded 14 goals in their last five games and kept just two clean sheets in their last 21 home games.
Moreover, the Cottagers have lost seven of their last eight home matches against top-half teams while Spurs have won nine out of 13 trips to bottom-half sides since the start of last season. A Spurs win can be backed at 4/6 and looks decent value.
Over 2.5 Goals was a very profitable bet in Fulham’s home games under Martin Jol but Rene Meulensteen will probably hope to keep things a bit tighter in his first game in charge and the goals markets are perhaps best left alone.
Jermain Defoe will be hoping for a chance here, having scored in three of his last four appearances against Fulham despite only starting one of those matches. He’s averaged a goal every 44 minutes in those four matches, scoring the last goal of the game three times, and can be backed to be the Last Goalscorer at 4/1.
