Tottenham are up against Bournemouth at the Wembley Stadium hoping to potentially sneak into the top two places on New Year’s Day. Spurs are just two points behind Manchester City, who appeared to have an unassailable lead a few weeks ago. Incredibly, Spurs remain only six points behind Liverpool at the top of the table. Bournemouth remain in danger of slipping out of the top 10 places with the likes of Leicester and Wolves too close to comfort.

Betting Tips for the game
Tottenham were able to get their fourth consecutive league victory after a 6-2 success over Everton at Goodison Park. This was the biggest victory of the campaign for Mauricio Pochettino’s men.

Bournemouth are given a price of 9.00 to win the match. Yet, we would not pick this choice. The Cherries may have just picked up a crucial win over Bournemouth but they are up against a very strong opponent, who can certainly be regarded as dark horses for the title given their current form. A string of four consecutive wins compared with Manchester City and Chelsea dropping points has led to Spurs focus more on the second spot rather than worry about sustaining the third place. After having picked up four wins in the last five games against Bournemouth, Spurs also have psychological advantage. Our preview would pick a home win.

Tottenham vs Bournemouth draw odds: 5.50
Bournemouth win odds: 9.00
Correct Score odds
Spurs came up with a six-goal return against Everton but the North London outfit have not been flamboyant in front of goal this season. Instead, Bournemouth may opt for a solid backline due to the awareness of their defensive shortcomings. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for Spurs.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The Spurs team has been able to witness over 2.5 goals only once in the last five matches in all competitions, but they are in a position to score and concede goals. Leicester and Burnley – two teams that have been mediocre going forward this season – are the only teams to score against Spurs in the last six league games. Our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Harry Kane took his league total to 11 goals after the double against Everton. Even though he has scored the opener only in four out of these 11 goals, the likelihood of witnessing the England international break the deadlock is quite strong. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Kane.
