Tottenham Hotspur - Fulham Betting Preview: Why backing goals at White Hart Lane could prove profitable

There has been no shortage of goalmouth action in Spurs' recent outings and our tipster is expecting goals galore when Tim Sherwood's men take on Felix Magath's side
Tottenham Hotspur came from 3-0 down to force a 3-3 draw against West Bromwich Albion last weekend and Tim Sherwood’s men face another relegation-threatened side when they welcome Fulham to White Hart Lane on Saturday afternoon.

Spurs’ dream of qualifying for next season’s Champions League appears to be fading but they can keep their hopes alive by collecting full points from this weekend’s fixture.

Fulham have greatly enhanced their chances of preserving their Premier League status with back-to-back victories over Aston Villa and Norwich respectively and Felix Magath’s men will make the trip across London in confident mood.

Tim Sherwood’s side are warm favourites to win on home turf, with bet365 offering just 1/2 (1.50) for Spurs to triumph while Fulham are chalked up at 11/2 (6.50) with the same firm to further bolster their hopes of beating the drop from the top flight with victory here. The draw is available at 16/5 (4.20) with bet365 this weekend.

It is worth noting that Fulham have kept just one clean sheet on the road in the Premier League thus far this term – on the opening day of the season against Sunderland – while Spurs have conceded in each of their last eight matches in all competitions.

Therefore, it is somewhat unsurprising that bet365 offer just 4/6 (1.67) for both teams to find the net this weekend while the same firm go 8/15 (1.53) that Saturday’s contest features three or more goals.

Remarkably, Spurs have leaked the opening goal in each of their last eight matches and, should that pattern be repeated here, there would be value in backing the chunky 21/10 (3.10) on offer from bet365 for the Cottagers to break the deadlock at White Hart Lane.

Furthermore, no fewer than seven of Spurs’ last eight matches have featured at least four goals and, with action likely at both ends this weekend, punters are advised to take a chance on Saturday’s clash producing four or more goals at a generous 6/4 (2.50) with bet365.

Over 3.5 goals at 6/4 (2.50) for a 2pts stake with bet365
