Chicago Fire - Tottenham Hotspur Betting Preview: Spurs to dominate from the start in Illinois

Spurs’ American tour continues this weekend, with Mauricio Pochettino looking to make it two wins on the spin. Our tipster is backing a comfortable match for the North Londoners

Tottenham play Chicago Fire this weekend looking to continue their fine scoring form on their US tour. Spurs have netted six goals in two matches, with Mauricio Pochettino bringing an attacking edge to the new regime at White Hart Lane.

Spurs drew 3-3 with Seattle Sounders in their opening tour match, a game which saw them come from behind twice. They followed that up with a 3-2 win over Toronto, with Erik Lamela starring with a brace. Bet365 price them at 1/2 (1.50) to record another win.

Chicago Fire are having a difficult season in the Eastern Conference so far, sitting in eighth place of 10 teams after 19 matches. Frank Yallop’s men don’t often play friendlies against British sides, with only Manchester United and Aston Villa both playing Chicago in 2011 and 2012 respectively, and on both occasions the Fire were defeated.

After losing 5-1 to San Jose Earthquakes on Thursday, Yallop will be keen to see a reaction from his side. Bet365 price them at 4/1 (5.00) to win, with the same firm pricing the draw at 10/3 (4.33).

As with their first two friendlies, you can expect goals from Spurs for and against them in this friendly. However, with the price of over 2.5 goals at 1/2 (1.50), it’s a little short to back.

Instead, backing them to be winning at half time and full time at 13/10 (2.30) seems like a solid price.

This would have landed in their last game, and with Chicago struggling in their last match, expect Tottenham to cruise to victory.
