Swansea City - Tottenham Hotspur Betting Preview: Swans and Spurs set for second half drama

Tim Sherwood's side are in fine form and are favourites to win at Liberty Stadium this weekend but our tipster is expecting plenty of second-half drama from Sunday's clash
Tottenham Hotspur have hit a rich vein of form in recent weeks and Tim Sherwood’s side will look to maintain their winning run when they travel to the Liberty Stadium to take on Swansea City on Sunday afternoon.

Spurs have picked up 13 points from a possible 15 since Andre Villas-Boas’ departure as manager and the north Londoners can be backed at an appealing 11/8 (2.38) with Paddy Power to win in Wales.

In contrast, Swansea City come into Sunday’s match having failed to win any of their previous seven league fixtures and, with the Swans slipping down the table, Michael Laudrup will be desperate to see his side return to winning ways here.

Swansea can be backed at 2/1 (3.0) with Paddy Power to claim their first league win since a 3-0 triumph over Newcastle United at the start of last month while the same firm go 23/10 (3.30) that the match ends in stalemate.

Four of Swansea’s last five Premier League matches at Liberty Stadium has seen at least three goals scored while more than two goals have been netted in each of Spurs’ last five league matches away from White Hart Lane.

With that in mind, the 4/5 (1.80) quote from Paddy Power for three or more goals to be scored when these two sides go head-to-head offers plenty of value for punters here.

It is worth noting, too, that just three of Swansea’s 18 home goals in the Premier League thus far this term have come in the first half while nine of Spurs’ 13 away goals in the top flight have come in the second half.

Therefore, Paddy Power’s even money (2.0) quote for the second half to feature most goals looks to be generous and should be eagerly snapped up by punters this weekend.

Tim Sherwood’s men are the team in form and at 11/8 (2.38) with Paddy Power it's easy to see why punters would be keen on backing them to get the better of the Swans.

However, it should be noted that Spurs have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last six domestic fixtures away from home so the chunky 17/2 (9.50) quote from Paddy Power for Tottenham to win 2-1 is potentially worth a look with smaller stakes but the Even money (2.0) quotes about the second half containing the most goals should certainly be the main play.
