The English Premier League games keep coming.

Following a slate of mid-week action, the EPL is back at it this weekend with a number of different games, including Tottenham playing host to Sunderland.

Despite the fact that Tottenham and Sunderland are polar opposites in the EPL standings right now, the game is of enormous importance for both teams. Tottenham currently sits in fourth place in the table, four points behind Man City, while Sunderland is currently in 18th place. Tottenham obviously has a Champions League spot on its mind, while Sunderland is desperately trying to avoid delegation for next season. As mentioned, this is a very important game for both teams, as there is a tremendous amount on the line for both teams.

Tottenham will be playing in front of their home fans and, as such, will be the clear favourites to win on Saturday. Here are the current betting odds:

Tottenham, 1.33
Draw, 5.00
Sunderland, 9.00

According to the bookmakers, the three likeliest outcomes of Saturday's match are:

Tottenham Wins 2-0, 7.00
Tottenham Wins 1-0, 7.50
Tottenham Wins 3-0, 8.50

The likeliest scenario that involves a Sunderland victory? That would be a 1-0 victory for the side from Sunderland, which currently goes for 21.00 on William Hill.


Sunderland has managed just 7 points on the road so far this season, which is one of the lowest road totals in the league. Tottenham, on the other hand, has been decent at home, compiling 19 points over 11 games.

Sunderland has managed to win their last two games in a row - can they carry this momentum over into Saturday's game against Tottenham?
