Bet on Sunderland vs Spurs – Hosts to throw away points

| 12.02.2011

Tottenham may be overpriced at 4/1 to gain a result from Sunderland after falling behind at some point in the Premier League fixture.

To Come From Behind and Win or Draw

Spurs have proved a dab hand when it comes to claiming results from losing positions this season, as they have gained 17 points after falling behind, which is more than any other Premier League outfit.

Meanwhile, Sunderland have the worst top-flight record this season when it comes to dropping points from winning positions, as they have thrown away 17 points in games where they have led.

Based on these records, there is a strong chance that Spurs may fall behind, but still get a result that will keep them on course for a top-four finish this season.

It is 13/2 in the Premier League betting that Spurs come from behind and draw, while odds of 10/1 are available that Sunderland go ahead but end up losing.

Match Odds

Based on current form, Tottenham should land the spoils as they have won their last two Premier League games, while Sunderland have lost their most recent two fixtures.

It is 6/4 that Spurs claim another win, although they have failed to win any of their last five away games with Sunderland.

Furthermore, Sunderland have only been defeated in three of their last 23 Premier League games at the Stadium of Light.

The fact that Tottenham have only kept clean sheets in two of their last 17 Premier League away games may also give Sunderland confidence and they are 9/5 to secure victory.

Another small bet that may be worth considering is the 9/1 that a penalty is missed in the game, as four spot-kicks have been awarded in the last three meetings between the pair and three of these have been missed.

A £25 stake on the scorecast of Sunderland drawing 1-1 with Spurs and Asamoah Gyan scoring first would return £625. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
