Bournemouth vs Tottenham: Head-to-head
The head to head record, however, speaks completely in Tottenham’s favour.
Spurs won seven and drew one of eight encounters with Bournemouth so far.
Tottenham bagged as many as nine goals in last two wins over the Cherries, including this term’s 5-0 victory in December last year at Wembley.
Bournemouth vs Tottenham: Prediction
Tottenham are four points above Arsenal in fifth place, but they have a tricky clash with Everton scheduled for the last round of the season.
They will be looking to secure a spot in the next season of Champions League with a result here against Bournemouth who have nothing to play for in two remaining matches.
The hosts can, however, be lethal in the final third on their day. They scored three or more goals on two separate occasions in last three rounds in the Premier League. Callum Wilson was particularly inspired last weekend when his brace secured the Cherries a point away at Southampton (a 3-3 draw).
Spurs are favourites on paper, but instead of backing the away win we will go for the Over 2.5 goals FT pick as the main betting option at the odds of 1.61.
