Spurs vs Fulham - betting preview with Betfred
18 April 2014|Tottenham Hotspur
Spurs showed their fighting spirit once again last weekend as they recovered from three goals down to grab a point. They now face a London derby against Fulham having won seven of their last eight meetings.
Since 2011/12 Spurs have won 13 of 18 home games against bottom-six teams. However, they’ve been ahead at the break in just one of the last 13 of those games as 11 have been level at half-time and they’ve recorded seven Draw/Win doubles.
Back to back wins have given Fulham a sniff of safety but they’ve only once won three in a row since 2008/09 and in the six times they’ve been on the road looking for a third consecutive win they’ve not even managed to score a single goal.
Furthermore, Fulham have picked up just one point from their eight trips this season to the current top half; suffering six defeats to nil and six losses by more than one goal, and losing the second half seven times. Spurs have a great second-half record and you can back them to win the second 45 at 4/5.
Felix Magath has started to get Fulham more organised at the back and with Fulham’s poor record of scoring at the best teams this season, there is possibly some value in the Under 2.5 Goals market at 5/4.
Christian Eriksen has scored in five of his last eight appearances including four of his last five at White Hart Lane. In fact eight of his 10 Spurs goals this season have come at home and he looks the best value pick in the scorers market at about 15/8 to score anytime and 11/2 to be the first goalscorer.
