Spurs vs Stoke – One-goal winning margin highly likely

| 08.04.2011

Historically, Premier League games between Tottenham and Stoke have often been tight and 5/2 could be the best bet of the fixture that Harry Redknapp’s win by a one-goal margin.

Match Odds

Tottenham come into the game on a big low after their disappointing Champions League defeat against Real Madrid, while they have also failed to take maximum points in their last four Premier League outings.

However, Spurs remain strong at home, losing just one of their last 25 top-flight games at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham are 4/5 in the Premier League odds to beat Stoke and have won three of the last four showdowns between the pair.

Stoke are unbeaten in their last three games and this run seems to have ended any lingering doubts relating to their Premier League survival this season.

But their chances are hindered by the fact that Danny Higginbotham has been ruled out of the season, while Tottenham should be able to recall Aaron Lennon after illness ruled him out of the Real Madrid defeat literally seconds before kick-off.

It is 5/2 that the game ends all square, although Stoke have never drawn a Premier League game in London.

Margin Of Victory

One goal has separated Stoke and Tottenham in five of their last six Premier League encounters and there is no reason to believe that things will be any different this season.

Tottenham hold the slight edge with four victories in the six games and 2-1 has proved the most common of the scorelines.

Spurs’ odds are 7/1 to beat Stoke 2-1, while it is 6/1 that they sneak a 1-0 success.

Alternatively, Stoke are 6/1 to win by one goal, while it is 8/1 that they triumph 1-0 and 14/1 that they claim a 2-1 victory.

A £20 stake on Spurs beating Stoke 2-1 would return £140. New customers can sign up here.
