High flying Tottenham Hotspur take on Wolverhampton Wanderers at White Hart Lane on Saturday. The match presents the Spurs with the perfect opportunity to put pressure on Man United and Man City with a 3 point haul.
Tottenham and Wolverhampton have played one another seven times in the past decade. The Spurs have won four of these encounters, while two wins went to the Wolves and only one match ended in a draw. Wolverhampton achieved one away win at White Hart Lane during this period.
The Wolves most recent visit to White Hart Lane ended in a 3-1 defeat.
Tottenham is peaking at the perfect point of the season. While Man City and Man United are both struggling to maintain momentum, the Spurs have put their foot on the gas, and come into this match with four wins and a single draw from their last five fixtures.
Tottenham have scored 9 goals in their last five matches. Where they’ve shone is on defence, with just a single goal conceded in five matches – easily the best defensive record in the English top flight at present.
The Wolves, meanwhile, are trundling along with single point hauls, with four of their last five matches producing draws, and one match against Chelsea ending in a defeat.
The Wolves have scored 5 goals in their last five matches. Defence has been equally lackluster, letting in 6 goals during the same period.
The Wolves are up against it in this fixture, and it’s tough to see this match going any way other than a win for the Spurs. The Wolverhampton forwards certainly don’t look like they’ll be putting more than a single goal past the Spurs backs, while Tottenham easily has the firepower to win this.
The over/under goals market looks like the best option for this fixture, and we have the feeling it may be a low-scoring one. The Wolves will struggle to get on the board, and their own defence has what it takes to frustrate Tottenham and restrict them to a low scoring win.
Our Tottenham Hotspur vs Wolverhampton Wanderers betting tip is to go with under 2.75 goals being scored in the over/under goals betting markets.
