PRICE BOOSTS MAX BET £10
As expected, Spurs put in a convincing performance in Europe on Thursday night against LASK. The main talking point from that match though was the debut of replacement striker Carlos Vinicius.
The Brazilian provided two assists and has put his hand up to push for a starting birth in the Premier League and not just be Harry Kane’s stand-in, while Lucas Moura made in three goals from three starts across all competitions for the first time at the club.
Burnley on the other hand, have been seriously struggling this season. Their sole victory came against Championship side Millwall in the League Cup, as all of Leicester, Southampton, Man City and Newcastle have already beaten them.
In fact, they even failed to beat second favourites for the drop West Brom, and so they’d do very well to come out of this one with any points.
Spurs To Beat Burnley
The Lilywhites usually struggle on the road, although they’ve done anything but this season. They’ve won all four trips across all competitions, downing Southampton 5-2 and inflicted Man Utd’s joint biggest Premier League defeat in the last of them.
Those impressive displays have come thanks to the link up play of both Son Heung-min and Harry Kane, netting nine of their total 11 Premier League goals on the road, while if we include their games at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, they account for 80% of their 15 goals.
That hardly gives much hope for the Clarets, who’ve won just two of their eight matches in all tournaments at Turf Moor since the start of February, as both victories came against the now relegated Watford and Bournemouth, while they’ve lost both the last two.
Moreover, their league record here against the ‘Big Six’ is woeful too, going W1-D3-L14 since the start of the 2017/18 campaign, including six defeats from their last eight such winless outings.
In fact, Spurs have won five of their eight meetings across all venues since Sean Dyche’s men were promoted for the 2016/17 season, losing only once and they look worth getting behind at the prices.
Harry Kane To Score Anytime
Given we expect the visitors to take the full three points, we’re a little surprised to not see the goalscoring machine that is Harry Kane at a shorter price.
The England captain has netted five goals in the league already, including eight goal contributions from his two trips to opposition so far.
In fact, he’s scored six goals from his last four outings against Burnley too, and at the rate he’s going, we’d be very surprised if he didn’t get himself on the scoreboard.
