Spurs set to rule at the Britannia

Spurs travel to the Britannia Stadium to take on Stoke today (1.30pm Ko, Live on Sky Sports 1) and look a decent bet at 10/11 with BetVictor and Paddy Power to come away with all three points.

Victory is a vital in their battle for a top four finish, and they come into the game having shown great resolve to twice come from behind at secure a draw against Chelsea in midweek despite Gareth Bale not being at his best.

They face a side who lost 10 of their first 13 games of 2013, but have since won two in three to get them back into the middle of the table.

The Potters are also unbeaten in their last three Premier League clashes with them (W1 D2), so it’s not going to be easy for the Lilywhites.

However given the importance of a victory I am sure that Andre Villas-Boas will have his men up for the challenge and they are taken to make their class tell and come out on top.

Bale may have failed to get on the scoresheet against Chelsea, but he  has scored in 10 of Spurs’s 18 away games this season and looks worth sticking with in the goalscorer markets.

He can be backed at a best of 4/1 with BetVictor, Coral and Ladbrokes to bag the first and a huge looking 23/20 with sportingbet to net anytime. The latter looks particularly good value given that he is as short as 8/11 with other firms.

In the correct score market I like the look of the 9/1 on offer with Stan James about a 2-1 Spurs victory.
