The decision to sign Tim Sherwood as the
Spurs’ new coach following AVB’s ignominious exit from the club is proving to
be an auspicious decision. The Spurs are enjoying renewed fortunes in the
league, back inside the elite six with a three-point edge over Manchester
United and just a point shy of Everton (fifth) and two points adrift of
A top four finish is still a realistic possibility
although they are listed at +350 soccer
odds at Bet365 to accomplish the feat, a considerable distance behind Man U
at +188. Man City have this market cornered at -6600 soccer odds followed by
Chelsea at -1200, Arsenal at -700 and Liverpool at -150.
Tottenham boast a 12-4-5 record in the
league and 40 points in 21 laps. Both home and road form is good but the latter
is marginally better – they are 5-3-3 at home and 7-1-2 on the road –and that
goes some way towards explaining their favourable odds across online
sportsbooks to win outright at Swansea City at the weekend.
Spurs are listed as the favourites albeit
on the short side of even money at +140 to win outright at Bet365, a feat that would extend their league
form to six games undefeated; they are currently 4-1-0 in their last five and
over this positive stretch, they beat Southampton 3-2 on the road as well as
Man U 2-1 at the Old Trafford.
Sportsbooks are sending Swansea into their home clash with the Spurs at the
decided disadvantage, listing the win at +180 soccer odds and the draw at
around +240-250, depending on the online
betting platform of choice.
A conspicuous dip in form has a large part
to do with this market cast. But how much stock should we put into those poor
results when it’s glaringly obvious they are courtesy of the league’s toughest
opponents, most of which occupy lofty positions in the table?
The Swans, sat 13th in the table
on the back of a 5-6-10 mark and 21 points from 21 matches, have lost four of
their last five league games; they are 0-1-4, a run of form that features clashes
with both Manchester clubs, Chelsea and Everton – all of which were always
going to be a big ask for the Swans. Their only point during this stretch came
against Aston Villa when the pair settled on the 1-1 draw at Villa Park.
Indeed the Swans are going through a rough
patch that is exacerbated by a unforgiving schedule, which has them taking on
the top half of the league almost exclusively. The Spurs will be their sixth top
club in a row; talk about no favours from the schedule.
Unfortunately, the schedule comes at a
steep price for the Swans as they are now just three points clear of the drop
zone. That the date with the Spurs is their last big clash for the time being is
something to look forward to but, at the same time, mindful of relegation,
which looms just three points away, the premium on gaining a result here
couldn’t be any bigger. So can the Swans defy the odds in their favour?

City are desperate for a win but they can’t seem to buy a win against the big
clubs no matter how hard they try. While they did beat Man U in midweek FA Cup
action, proving they are able to rise to the occasion. They just don’t do it
consistently enough to make them a good soccer pick, as the subsequent defeat
to Man U in league action proved. Therefore, Tottenham to win outright at +140
seems to be the value soccer pick
