Bournemouth v Tottenham Odds, Tips and Preview
Game time & date: 1500 BST, Saturday October 29
Location: Vitality Stadium, Bournemouth
Last result between the two: Bournemouth 0-0 Tottenham, Premier League, June 2020
Both these teams have stumbled of late, with each Bournemouth and Tottenham suffering successive Premier League defeats that have come on the back of periods of good form in recent weeks.
Bournemouth won their last home Premier League game against Tottenham but the Premier League betting odds point to an away victory in this one. We have taken a look to try to pick out some value.
O’Neil’s time with Cherries sours
Caretaker coach Gary O’Neil had presided over a fine run of form with Bournemouth, but losses to Southampton and West Ham have seen his side slip down the table over the last week or so.
Bournemouth failed to score in both of those matches and problems in front of goal have been evident all season, with the Cherries scoring in only one of their past five Premier League home matches.
Indeed, just one of those four games at home for Bournemouth has seen more than one goal scored, so it seems set to be a tight and tense affair when Spurs visit on Saturday afternoon.
Nathan Ake’s late goal proved decisive when these two sides faced off in the Premier League in 2019, with Spurs finishing the game with nine men after Son Heung-min and Juan Foyth were both dismissed, then there was a goalless draw when Spurs returned to the same ground the following season.
Bournemouth are four points above the relegation zone but they could yet slide down towards the bottom three, with the Bournemouth v Tottenham betting odds suggesting they will lose again here.
The 11/8 with 888Sport on Bournemouth failing to score is well worth considering for this game.
Spurs see title charge falter
Tottenham had moved into contention for a Premier League title challenge thanks to an excellent run of results, but losing away to Manchester United then at home to Newcastle has come as a hammer blow.
Winning both of those games would have seen Spurs sit top of the table but instead they have a five-point deficit to make up on rivals Arsenal, while Manchester City are also three points ahead.
Spurs have been far better at home than they have away this season. That stands for all competitions, not just in the Premier League, with Antonio Conte’s side unable to find any consistency.
In their past six away trips, Spurs have only been able to win once, which might raise a question mark as to why they are such strong favourites in the Bournemouth v Tottenham betting odds for Saturday.
Although they have drawn and lost on their last two trips to Bournemouth in the Premier League, Spurs have tended to dominate this fixture in recent times. They have won four of the past six meetings with Bournemouth, but Spurs do look a little short in the Premier League betting odds for this one.
The evens on under 2.5 goals with 888Sport seems like a good place to start for those seeking value. Anyone who is keen to back the visitors could take the 59/20 with 888Sport for Spurs/under 2.5 goals.
With both teams coming into Saturday’s game on the back of successive Premier League defeats, it is tricky to call where the value sits in the Bournemouth v Tottenham betting odds for this one.
Spurs should get back on track here and while they have taken a single point from their past two trips to Bournemouth, they have won four of the past six meetings between the sides.
Bournemouth have failed to score in their last two games so the evens on under 2.5 goals with 888Sport is a good option, as is the 59/20 with 888Sport for Spurs to win with under 2.5 goals.
