Bet on Tottenham vs Fulham – Home win is difficult to oppose

| 01.01.2011

Tottenham are unbeaten in their last six games against Fulham and their impressive home record in the Premier League this season should ensure that this run is liable to continue.

Match Odds

Spurs’ betting odds are 2/5 to beat Fulham and there are some fairly obvious reasons why their price is so short.

Tottenham have won three of their last four home games against Fulham, including those to take place during the last campaign in both the Premier League and FA Cup.

Meanwhile, Harry Redknapp’s team also secured maximum points against Fulham in their meeting at Craven Cottage earlier this season, when they came from behind to win 2-1.

Furthermore, Spurs have also won five of their last seven Premier League games and Wigan are the only team in the top flight to leave White Hart Lane with maximum points this season.

Fulham picked up a rare Premier League away victory in their latest fixture at Stoke, which their first on their travels during the present campaign.

They also only won once away throughout the whole of last season and are 7/1 to beat Tottenham.

First Goalscorer

With Jermain Defoe still suspended, Redknapp faces a big decision who to select in attack.

Roman Pavlyuchenko got the nod in the lone frontman role against Newcastle and if he is picked again he could be good value at 7/2 to score first.

Peter Crouch is another option open to Redknapp and can be backed at 4/1 to break the deadlock.

Fulham have only managed two goals in their last six games with Tottenham and they may be relying on Andy Johnson to rediscover his best scoring form if they are to break through against Spurs.

Johnson is 9/1 to score the first goal against Tottenham, while teammate Clint Dempsey is also 9/1.
