Tottenham still looking for first win of the season
On Sunday, Tottenham will be hoping to bag their first victory of the season in their away game against Reading this weekend, and they are generally even money (2) chances to do so.
As far as the stats are concerned, Spurs have have won six and lost just one of the last eight matches against Reading in all competitions.
Their opponents have also only won one of their last nine games in the Premier League (W1 D3 L5), but they have won won eight and lost none of their last 10 league games at the Madejski Stadium.
That is a concern for Spurs, who have picked up just two pints so far this season and whose manager Andre Villas-Boas has also managed to secure just three wins from his last 15 Premier League matches as a manager.
However even money would be a great punt if the “real” Tottenham show up, and I simply can’t resist backing them at that price in the hope that is the case,
One player who will certainly have a major say if they are to win is Emmanuel Adebayor.
He has scored six goals in his last six Premier League starts for Tottenham, and looks the obvious bet in the first goalscorer market at 7 with Boylesports.
I think this is going to be a real hard fought affair, with only a single goal likely to separate the sides at the final whistle.
For that reason, I am going to take Spurs to come on top 2-1 and that scoreline can be backed at 9 with Betfred.
