Tottenham Hotspur's push for the Premier League title continued apace last weekend.
Mauricio Pochettino's men enjoyed a thumping 4-0 win against Watford at White Hart Lane - a result that saw Spurs extend their unbeaten run to 20 matches in all competitions at the venue this term; furthermore, it was the north Londoners' eighth consecutive domestic victory.
Spurs are the only side still challenging Chelsea in the race to be crowned as champions and Pochettino's men will narrow the gap to four points - for 24 hours, at least - by beating AFC Bournemouth at White Hart Lane on Saturday afternoon; given Spurs' scintillating home form, it is little surprise that Paddy Power offer just 1/4 (1.25) that the hosts pick up another vital victory from this match.
Bournemouth have yet to win on the road in 2017 and Paddy Power offer 12/1 (13.0) that Eddie Howe's charges buck that trend by taking all three points against Tottenham, while the odds compilers offer 9/2 (5.50) that the match remains all square at the end of 90 minutes - a selection that would have seen punters profit from each of the Cherries' last three Premier League away fixtures.
Spurs have been razor sharp in attack in recent times, scoring 29 goals in their last nine games and the home side's attacking capabilities may well be bolstered by the return of top scorer Harry Kane from injury; the 23-year-old England striker enjoyed a cameo from the bench as Spurs hammered the Hornets last weekend.
Kane can be backed at 4/7 (1.57) to grab a goal in this game, while his England team-mate, Dele Alli, who is enjoying a hugely productive season in front of goal, can be backed at 13/10 (2.30) with Paddy Power to add to his impressive tally against the Cherries. Son Heung-Min scored twice against Watford and the South Korean star, who has excelled in deputising for Kane in recent weeks, is available at 5/6 (1.83) to get amongst the goals in this game.
Spurs have scored three or more goals in four of their last five fixtures on home turf and the odds compilers offer even money (2.0) that the trend continues in this clash, while Spurs can be backed at 4/6 (1.67) with Paddy Power to win by at least two clear goals - a selection that would have seen punters profit from all but one of Tottenham's last five outings.
There have been goals at both ends in five of Bournemouth's last six matches away from home and Paddy Power offer 5/6 (1.83) that both teams are on target in north London, while the same firm go 22/1 (23.0) that the match ends goalless - as it did when these rivals locked horns at Vitality Stadium back in October.
Spurs, however, are brimming with belief and Pochettino's men will strongly fancy their chances of getting amongst the goals again when the Cherries make the trip to north London.
Paddy Power's even money (2.0) quote, therefore, for Spurs to score more than two goals could offer punters with a solid selection ahead of Saturday's fixture at White Hart Lane.
