The Swans will be hosting Tottenham this Sunday and are currently pinned as the slight soccer betting odds as favorites. Will they pick up all three points at home?

Odds Overview
There's not much in the soccer odds at all, as Swansea City is in the +150 to +165 range, with Tottenham available in the +175 to +190 area. A draw is quoted at anywhere from +225 to +250.

 

Swansea City
It was most certainly a rough month for the Swans, as they weren't able to win one match in September. They've finished with three losses and one defeat over their last four matches. 

So far, the two biggest threats going forward for Swansea City have been Bafetimbi Gomis and Andre Ayew, who have combined for seven league goals on the year. Will they be a threat against Tottenham on Sunday?

 

Tottenham
Whereas the Swans have been falling short lately, Spurs have performed well in recent weeks. They've only lost one of their last nine matches across all competitions, so confidence should be high for the club at the moment.

Playing away from home is never easy in the Premier League, however, and Tottenham's found that out the hard way, picking up just one win outside of White Hart Lane in league play.

 

Premier League Pick
While Tottenham is the more recognized name and will therefore be getting a lot of love from the general public at what seem to be generous odds, we're going the other way.

We have been very impressed with what we've seen out of Swansea City, despite a few hiccups here and there of late. Their recent troubles have all come away from home, so a return to Wales should be exactly what the doctor ordered for them to reverse course. The Swans have yet to lose a single match at Liberty Stadium so far this season, and we look for that run to continue this Sunday in what should be an excellent match. Let's roll with Swansea City as one of our soccer picks for the weekend.

Predicted Final Score: Swansea City 2 Tottenham 1

Premier League Soccer Pick: Swansea +165 at 5Dimes
