Football – England – Premier League Betting Tips
Second placed Tottenham have put together a very promising and impressive eight-match unbeaten run in the Premier League and no doubt they’ll be keen to extend this run of form into today’s match against bottom half outfit Middlesbrough at White Hart Lane.
Following back-to-back points earned on the road against Manchester City 2-2 and Sunderland 0-0, Spurs will return to their home turf today where they’ve recorded a very solid record to date which stands at 9-2-0 25/5 in addition to also possessing the best defensive record at home in the Premier League.
Tottenham have also won their last six home matches on the trot which includes wins over current league leaders Chelsea as well as keeping seven clean sheets to date too. Striker Harry Kane and goalscoring midfielder Dele Alli are the pick of the anytime goalscorers for the hosts.
Visitors Middlesbrough have now gone six Premier League matches without recording a valuable win, and indeed, Boro have registered just one win from their last nine matches overall – that being a 3-0 win over Swansea City at the Riverside Stadium.
Middlesbrough now sit in 15th place and hold a slender two point lead over third from bottom club Crystal Palace who occupy the last relegation spot, so Boro will be nervously looking over their shoulders from hereon in.
Boro possess an away record littered with draws which stands at 1-6-4 8/12 with their one success this season on the road being a 2-1 win at north-east rivals Sunderland, but the fact that Middlesbrough have found it difficult to find the back of the net on their travels may well hold them back again here.
