Toronto - Tottenham Hotspur Betting Preview: Why the Premier League side are good value for the win

Phil Kitromilides believes the side from north London are over priced at 9/10 to inflict a defeat upon their North American opponents
Tottenham's second match of their pre-season tour of North America sees them venture over the border to Canada to face MLS side Toronto.

Spurs' opening game of the tour saw them play out a highly entertaining 3-3 draw with Seattle Sounders on Saturday and another exciting game could be on the cards. Bet365 offer the hosts at 12/5 (3.40) to claim a win with the draw offered at the same price.

Spurs meanwhile are available at 9/10 (1.90) to overcome the Canadian outfit and that looks like an extremely healthy price for savvy punters.

The north Londoners are clearly a much better side than their opponents and at times in their previous game against Seattle, Spurs played some lovely football.

Bearing in mind that it was manager Mauricio Pochettino's first game in charge, there will have been plenty of positives for the Argentine to take from the performance of his side and if they can cut out some defensive lapses they may well be able to be highly competitive in the forthcoming Premier League campaign.

Against a lacklustre Toronto side who have failed to win five of their last six MLS games, Spurs should have few problems and the price of 9/10 (1.90) for them to win is well worth taking.

One thing Pochettino does lack, though, is a high quality striker with Emmanuel Adebayor still recovering from malaria, and a low-scoring encounter could well be on the cards.

Despite Jermain Defoe possibly lining-up for the MLS outfit, the under 2.5 goals market at 11/8 (2.38) with bet365 may well prove a worthwhile punt.
