Spurs v Sunderland - betting preview with Marathonbet
15 January 2016|Tottenham Hotspur
Spurs are big favourites with Marathonbet to get back to winning ways in the Premier League when Sunderland visit the Lane in Saturday’s early kick-off (12.45pm).
As always, there is value in the goalscoring markets. Dele Alli made his first Premier League start against Sunderland and with three goals in his last seven PL games, the midfielder is 36/5 to score first.
Harry Kane is always a favourite with punters and Marathonbet go 33/10 for the striker to score first. How about a tasty scorecast of Harry to score first and a 3-1 Spurs win? You’ll pick that up at a tempting 30/1.
Spurs continue to have the meanest defence in the Premier League (17 goals conceded in 21 games is three better than Palace and United) so a home win to nil looks a decent shout at a shade over evens - 117/100.
To do that, they will have to keep a familiar face at bay. Jermain Defoe is Spurs’ fifth all-time goalscorer and is now leading Sunderland’s fight for survival with five goals in vital successive wins over Villa and Swansea, where he scored a hat-trick.
