Tottenham look to remain in control of the third position when they take on inconsistent Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium this weekend. Spurs have looked like being in danger of dropping from the third spot, but teams like Chelsea, Arsenal, and United have not been able to take advantage of their form. As a result, Spurs hold a two-point advantage over Chelsea. Bournemouth already have one eye on the holidays with the team safe from relegation. Follow all our predictions, free bets, and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Bournemouth were involved in a remarkable 3-3 draw with Southampton at the St Mary’s Stadium during the weekend. The inconsistent run of Eddie Howe’s team sees just one win for Bournemouth in the last six league outings.
Spurs’ poor run continued even further with the team losing 1-0 against Ajax in the Champions League semi-final. Spurs were toothless in the game and it was a repeat of the defeat at the team suffered against West Ham in the last league outing.
The previous fixture between these two clubs was at the Wembley stadium with Spurs registering a 5-0 victory back on Boxing Day. Spurs picked up a 4-1 success in the last trip to the Vitality Stadium. Our betting tips and predictions would go with a Tottenham victory.

Spurs have a remarkable record against Bournemouth after winning five out of the last six meetings with the Cherries, who have also been thrashed on multiple occasions by the Whites. Tottenham come into the game with four losses in the last five games and there is a lot of pressure on the team to sustain the third spot with only two games left. Cherries do not have such pressure, but they have been very inconsistent. Still, Spurs’ motivation to finish third will push them to a win, as per our preview.

Bournemouth vs Tottenham draw odds: 3.60
Bournemouth win odds: 3.80
Correct Score odds
There have been a remarkable 17 goals from Tottenham in the last six meetings against Bournemouth. There may not be a repeat of the same this time around even with Bournemouth struggling defensively. Spurs lack form and there are some key injuries for Pochettino. Our correct score prediction would take a 2-1 win for Spurs.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The huge injury list for Bournemouth coupled with the defensive issues for Eddie Howe’s team is likely to make this game as a high scoring encounter. The return of Son Heung-Min will be a boost for Spurs, who have scored less than 1.5 goals per game in the last six matches. Yet, the defensive mistakes committed by Bournemouth have been persistent and our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Callum Wilson announced his return to form with a brace and an assist against Southampton. The striker scored just one goal since his return from the international break, but this strong performance against the Saints is a message for teams like Spurs, who have been exposed now and then. However, Son Heung-Min enjoys playing against the cherries and has scored a brace in his last two appearances against this team. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Son Heung-Min.
