Tottenham haven't earned an outright win in four straight matches, a streak they'll look to break away to Bournemouth this Sunday. Which soccer odds should we be exploiting?

Odds Overview
As you might expect, Spurs have been classified as favorites on the soccer odds board, despite being away from home.
Current lines show a Tottenham win listed at +120, a Bournemouth victory at +230, and a draw at roughly +250. Check out SBR's odds board for this game.

We saw The Cherries come out strong to start the season, but they've faltered here more recently, and as a result have dropped down to 17th in the Premier League table. They're only two points removed from the relegation zone, so each match is getting progressively more important as the season wears on.

When we last saw Bournemouth, they were busy getting crunched 5-1 by Manchester City at the Etihad. Surely they'll do a little better back at home this weekend.

It hasn't been the best month for Spurs, as they've gone winless over a four-match span ahead of this Sunday's trip.

All in all, they're still right in the thick of things near the top of the table; they're currently in seventh but just three points outside of the top four. Tottenham will be looking for a bounce back after they lost to Anderlecht in Europa League action during the week.


Premier League Pick
Based on sheer name brand, you should expect a lot of people to be drawn into backing Tottenham, especially since the odds are very affordable. 

But we're not sold that Spurs will win this match outright; instead, we look for Bournemouth to come out with another determined effort. With nothing to lose, The Cherries are not going to make it easy on their opponents throughout the season, however unlikely it may seem that they'll end up in the relegation zone by the end of the season. This weekend we anticipate Bournemouth holding strong and grabbing at least a point against a Tottenham team that's been underwhelming of late.

Free Pick: Bournemouth 1 Tottenham 1 - back the draw at +255 at 5Dimes
