It’s the final game of the season, and Spurs host Sunderland knowing that only a win coupled with Arsenal failing to win will be enough to secure Champions League football next year.
Spurs are the hot favourites at a best price of 3/10 with Bet Victor, who also offer the best odds available on the draw – 5/1. An unlikely Sunderland win can be backed at 11/1 with Bet365.

With Wigan’s relegation secured against Arsenal midweek, Sunderland can finally breathe easily and start planning for next season. It’s lucky for them that Wigan failed already, as Spurs have not lost in nine games in all competitions, and only lost once in their last 18 at White Hart Lane. Di Canio’s arrival brought the immediate bounce of back to back wins against Newcastle and Everton, but that is sandwiched in the middle of a run of two wins in 14 games.
With Sunderland now in holiday mode, Spurs should win this game, and probably quite comfortably. However an interesting stat is that Spurs have only kept two clean sheets in their last 18 games, and Sunderland have scored in every game under Paolo Di Canio. Two bets therefore stand out, both teams to score at an odds against 11/10 with Boylesports, and Spurs win with Both Teams to score @ 19/10 with Ladbrokes.
In terms of who is going to score the goals, the up and coming left winger for Spurs, Gareth someone-or-other is a 317/100 shot to score first with Youwin, and is 4/7 to score anytime. He hasn’t scored in two whole games though, proving that he is very much human (or only part simian, at least…) in these fallow periods Adebayor has stepped up and scored in his last two games. Adebayor is 9/2 to open the scoring with Bet Victor, and is a viable alternative if you don’t fancy backing Bale.
