Tottenham’s latest Premier League game is one of those football matches where the scoreline doesn’t tell the whole story. Sadly for them, we can’t say the same about Middlesbrough – their 1-3 defeat against Everton was merited and clear. The game between the two teams seems rather clear, with Tottenham attacking and Boro trying to snatch a point – will we be in for any surprises?

Probably not. Although they only won 1-0 against Sunderland, the Spurs enjoyed 74% of the possession and sent no fewer than 31 shots towards the Sunderland goal. They clearly deserved to win by a much larger goal margin, but in the end, they will have to be content with the 3 points.
Tottenham is still one of the 3 undefeated teams in the Premier League, alongside Everton and Manchester City – and should still remain undefeated after the game against Middlesbrough.
After a good start to their Premier League campaign, where they won 5 points in their first 3 games, Boro suffered two straight defeats and are now falling down the table and into relegation turmoil.
There are still lots of teams separated by 1-2 points, so the situation is not desperate, but a few more fixtures without a win could mean bad news for Negredo and company. They need to make sure they win points, but it will be very hard to do so against the Spurs.
Middlesbrough vs Tottenham Betting Tips
Our most clear prediction for this game is Tottenham not to lose, although this might not bring you lots of money. We are also fairly sure that Tottenham will score, and if you’re looking for higher-odd bets, go for a solo Spurs win, or a Spurs win & Harry Kane to score.
From a goalscoring perspective, we’re not very sure how many goals we will see – under 3,5 is the first thing that comes to mind. Although Tottenham plays very well, their finishing is not great during this period.
