Trying to predict how Tottenham will get on in any given game this season has proved a tough task, and with similarly-erratic Swansea up next away in the Premier League it doesn’t get much easier, but you’ll never see Ladbrokes News shy away from a challenge.
Here are our three best bets for the Swans v Spurs clash, with the first ranking as an absolute cracker.
Spurs have been losing going into the break, only to come back and win, in two of their past three Premier League away fixtures, at Hull and Aston Villa.
That form alone suggests there’s plenty of value in backing Mauricio Pochettino’s charges to rise from the dead once more after half time.
For the not yet convinced, Swansea bagged openers in nine of their last ten all-competition fixtures that saw the scoreboard operator troubled and went on to lose four of those games, so this price looks big, particularly considering the reverse result comes in at the same odds.
The Lilywhites’ 0-0 draw at home to Crystal Palace last time out was the first Premier League match in eight featuring Pochettino’s side that didn’t feature at least three goals, dating back to the start of October.
Three of Swansea’s last five top-flight outings have cleared this hurdle, with Garry Monk’s men notching at least once in each of those games, and with Spurs unable to boast of a Premier League clean sheet on the road since this term’s opening day at West Ham, expect plenty of striking action in south Wales.
This winning scoreline may not quite be as prevalent for the north Londoners as it has been for Manchester United, half of whose past 10 Premier League matches have ended as such, but Spurs have become pretty well acquainted with 2-1s nonetheless.
Six of their past 11 all-competition matches finished 2-1, with Spurs claiming the laurels in three of those fixtures, so you won’t go far wrong with the same again at the Liberty Stadium.
