Sunderland v Tottenham Odds: Back Spurs To Be Too Strong
The early kick off on Saturday sees Tottenham head north to play Sunderland in the Premier League and the form suggests this could be a tight clash. Both sides head into this one in great heart following good wins at the weekend but it is Spurs who are the favourites to take the three points in the live Sky Sports clash. The Festive period is always a key one in the Premier League and three points here for either side is sure to be a massive boost heading into the new year.
Sunderland have won their last two games to give their season a real lift after a woeful run of form had seen the Black Cats slip towards the relegation zone. The home win against Man City at the weekend was by far their best result of the season to date and it should see them take on Spurs full of confidence. Manager Martin O'Neill has always been confident that Sunderland would pull away from the drop zone and that appears to be the case at the moment following those two wins on the bounce.
Despite that recent upturn in form it is Sunderland who are the under dogs here with William Hill rating them as 13/5 shots to beat Spurs by any score. The problem for Sunderland this season has been their lack of goals with just ten to their name at home which has to be a worry against a Spurs side so blessed with attacking talent.
Andre Villas-Boas is really starting to settle into life as spurs coach after a rocky start with the North London side now sitting nicely in fourth place after two wins from their last three games. They put four past Aston Villa away at the weekend and their fans will be expecting another three points against sunderland on Saturday lunchtime. Gareth Bale was the difference against Villa with three goals and with the Welsh wizard in such great form it is hard to see past Spurs once again this weekend.
Spurs start the match as warm favourites to take the three points this weekend and punters wanting to back that result can currently get a price of 23/20 with William Hill which looks a decent price. Along with Bale, Spurs have been relying on Jermain Defoe in front of goal this season with the former Portsmouth Striker towards the top of the goal scoring charts with 14 goals to his name so far this season.
Sunderland will be in decent heart ahead of this one following their recent upturn in form but we fancy spurs to stop them in their tracks. Tottenham have lost just one of their last seven and seem to be improving with every game under Villas-Boas who seems much more at home at White Hart Lane following his ill fated spell at Chelsea. Gareth Bale has been simply unplayable in recent weeks and he is is sure to play a big part in the outcome of the match with a 2-1 win to Spurs looking like a cracking bet at 8/1.
Tip 1 - Spurs to win the match 2-1 @ 8/1 with Hills

Tip 3 - The match to produce over 2.5 goals @ 21/20 with Hills
