Thursday’s Premier League match between Bournemouth and Tottenham could be a crucial one for both teams. Bournemouth have lost all their games since lockdown but, with the other teams in the relegation battle also failing to impress, the Cherries still have a chance to survive.
Tottenham have lost just once since the Covid-19 suspension and that’s put them in with a shot of snatching a Europa League spot if the last five games of the season go to plan. That means both teams should be tempted to push forward and go for glory, and the value bet is for there to be more than 4.5 goals in the match.
Tottenham have the ability to both attack and defend but Jose Mourinho will, surely, think Bournemouth are there for the taking on Thursday night in their current form. The Tottenham strikers should also be hitting peak form after a few games and it’s easy to see them bursting into life against one of the basement teams. Tottenham also tend to let goals in away from home, including when conceding three to Sheffield United, a team that was also out of form at the time.
Bournemouth have also been trying to go for the wins in their last few games and, though that hasn’t paid off, they will surely push forward again. That should increase the chances of there being over 4.5 goals, just as there was in there 4-1 defeat by Newcastle and 5-2 defeat by Manchester United.
But what makes over 4.5 goals look great value is the recent head-to-heads between the two sides, with three of the last four matches producing that result. It was 3-2 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium earlier this season, while it was 5-0 the previous season. Spurs also won 4-1 at the Vitality Stadium two seasons ago.
