4 of 4 Experts (100%) with a pick on the moneyline are aligned. 8* play on Tottenham Hotspur (Straight-up).


Cappers Analysis:



Despite keeping a clean sheet for the second time in three matches, Tottenham’s form since the lockdown ended just hasn’t been good enough to make any ground up in the chase for Champions League qualifying. They currently sit 8th in the table, meaning they’d need to make up an 11 point difference and pass four clubs. It’s obviously not looking good in that regard but Thursday’s tussle against Bournemouth certainly looks promising. Bournemouth is inching dangerously close to relegation as they are tied with Aston Villa for second to last in the table. A win is something they desperately need right now, but even with one they wouldn’t be safe. Victory is something this side has tasted only seven times this entire campaign and the last one came all the way back on Feb 1st. Since that time, it’s been seven defeats and one draw. They’re 0 for 4 since lockdown ended, having been kept scoreless in the first two and then giving up nine goals in the last two. Bournemouth is clearly a side you want to be fading whenever you get the chance. This is a really cheap price on Hotspur!


Tottenham is coming off a 1-0 triumph over Everton, and another win here with see the team overtake three teams for the last Europa League spot.

Here Spurs will pay a visit to a Bournemouth side that is has beaten by at least three goals in two of its last four visits. I expect to see another comfortable Tottenham win in this one.

Bournemouth is in shambles as five straight Premier League defeats have seen the side plummet into the relegation zone. Last time out Bournemouth took a 5-2 beating by Man U, and the game before that it fell 4-1 to Newcastle.

I think we are getting a great price on a motivated, in-form superior team

Key Angle: It's important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. Here in this game the recent history of these two teams is particularly significant.

Key Trends:

- Bournemouth has lost five straight matches.

- Spurs have won four of their last five versus Bouremouth, posting a clean sheet in four of those wins.

- Only Norwich has a worse goal differential (-37) than Bournemouth (-27).

The verdict: look for Spurs to win big.


Although Tottenham are sometimes not dependable, they are coming off a big win and should play with a lot of heart. On the other hand, Bournemouth have been simply brutal since the restart, getting outscored 12-3 in four straight losses. Look for the Spurs to roll easily.



Best of luck!
