Wolves vs Tottenham – Spurs can profit from absentee

| 06.03.2011

Wolves have a great home record against the title challengers this season, but the loss of Jamie O’Hara could prove the defining factor as Tottenham prepare to travel to Molineux.

Match Odds

Spurs have won three of their last four games against Wolves and are 13/10 in the Premier League betting to take the three points that will keep them well in the mix to finish in the top four and qualify for the Champions League again.

Furthermore, Tottenham have been pretty good on the road this season, with only North London rivals Arsenal having secured more away Premier League victories than them so far.

Wolves have substantially improved in recent weeks and are now just one point from escaping the relegation places.

One of the keys to this improvement has been the inspired form of O’Hara, who has made a big impact since arriving on loan from Spurs.

However, the terms of his loan agreement mean he is unable to take part against his former club.

Wolves are 21/10 to beat Tottenham and are attempting to end a wait lasting over 30 years for three successive top-flight home wins.

The draw will do neither club any real favours, but can be backed at 23/10.

Both Teams To Score

Tottenham may be without Gareth Bale and Rafael Van der Vaart, but with the array of attacking riches at their disposal, they would still be largely expected to find the target against Wolves.

Spurs have also only failed to score in two of their last 20 Premier League away games.

Meanwhile, they have only managed one clean sheet in their last 14 games on the road.

These facts make 8/11 a decent price that both teams put their names on the scoresheet at Molineux.

A £25 stake on the scorecast of Tottenham beating Wolves 2-1 and Aaron Lennon scoring first would return £1500. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
