Bournemouth vs. Tottenham Betting Tips: Kane overpriced to continue scoring streak
Five top-flight matches take place at 3pm on Saturday, with Spurs travelling to the south coast to take on Bournemouth. We’ve picked out two bets that we think look good value, that both centre around a certain Harry Kane.
There was late drama for Tottenham on Wednesday as Harry Kane thought he scored the winner against Sporting in the final seconds, only to be ruled offside a few minutes later by the dreaded VAR. Antonio Conte was clearly unhappy with the decision and was sent off, but he must motivate his team to bounce back quickly from that setback and get the three points here at Bournemouth.
Gary O’Neil will have been frustrated with the hand-ball decisions that went against his side in the 2-0 loss at West Ham on Monday, and will be aware that they have failed to score in four of their six home matches this season. The Cherries are currently 14th in the table with a four point gap between themselves and the relegation zone.
Bournemouth vs Tottenham Tips
Regular readers here at BettingOdds.com will be aware that Harry Kane has been a profitable player to follow in certain betting markets this season and we are once again backing him to get on the scoresheet this weekend.
Bet365 have 6/5 on offer for the Tottenham talisman to grab himself a goal on Saturday. Kane has scored 10 league goals in just 12 matches this season and has amassed 8.78xG, only second to Erling Haaland with 10.95xG. This bet has landed in 75% of Kane’s Premier League matches this season, and with odds of 6/5 only implying a 45% chance of success this weekend, we are happy to have Kane onside to score once again.
At 89/1 we’ve also picked out Harry Kane to score a header and be carded. These two selections can be combined via the bet365 bet builder feature, and when looking at how Kane’s goals have arrived this season, we can see that five of his 10 have come via his head. With 9/1 on show as a single, this looks another nice way in for those looking to back him at Bournemouth.
Last season, no player for Spurs committed more fouls than Kane who was shown five yellow cards. This season, he’s already managed three in his first 12 matches and it’s worth noting that this selection of him to score a header and pick up a booking landed against Wolves earlier in the campaign at a big price. At 89/1 there’s no denying this is a long shot and that’s we why are only advising a 0.1pt stake, however with 33% of Kane’s attempts this term coming via his head, the double may have more legs than the odds suggest.
