Tottenham Hotspur will hope that home advantage can again prove pivotal when they welcome Swansea City to White Hart Lane.
Spurs are struggling; Mauricio Pochettino's men have won just one of their last 10 games in all competitions and the north Londoners have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last seven matches, conceding two goals in each of their last three fixtures.
There has been woe at Wembley, too, for Spurs suffered defeat at the hands of both Monaco and Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League, with Pochettino's team falling at the first hurdle in that competition.
At White Hart Lane, however, Spurs have been solid; the north Londoners are unbeaten in seven matches on their own patch, winning five and keeping a clean sheet in four of those fixtures.
Spurs are, therefore, strong favourites with SkyBet to claim a vital victory from this game, with the odds compilers offering just 1/3 (1.34) that Pochettino's men pick up all three points against the Swans.
Bob Bradley enjoyed his first win as a Premier League manager in the most spectacular style last weekend as two stoppage time strikes from Fernando Llorente gave Swansea a sensational 5-4 victory against Crystal Palace at Liberty Stadium.
Whilst a repeat of that scoreline is highly improbable, the side from south Wales can be backed at 15/2 (8.50) with SkyBet to win this one, while the same firm go 4/1 (5.0) that both teams are forced to settle for a share of the spoils.
Just one of Tottenham's six Premier League matches on home soil so far this season has seen more than two goals scored and the odds compilers offer 11/8 (2.38) that the trend continues in this match, while the same firm go even money (2.0) that Spurs shut out the Swans and record their ninth competitive clean sheet of the campaign.
Swansea have a dreadful defensive record, having shipped 11 goals in their last four fixtures but Bradley's side have found the net in all but one of their last nine outings and, with Spurs looking vulnerable, the visitors are more than capable of making their mark in north London.
The 8/15 (1.53) quote on offer from SkyBet for more than two goals to be scored in this match is somewhat skinny, but the 4/5 (1.80) quote from the same firm for goals at both ends offers outstanding value.
Punters, therefore, are advised to snap up SkyBet's 4/5 (1.80) quote for both teams to find the target at White Hart Lane on Saturday afternoon.
