A Look At Monaco’s Betting Odds

Leonardo Jardim and co set themselves up for a decent stab at topping Group E with a 2-1 win away to their next opponents at Wembley first time out, with the principality outfit picking up another five points and still unbeaten after clashes with CSKA Moscow (twice) and Bayer Leverkusen.

They could hardly be going into this game in better form, having won three of their past four in all competitions by at least three goals and hitting the Ligue 1 summit in recent weeks, albeit on goal difference.

At 29/20, they look value to inflict another damaging defeat on Spurs.

A Look At Tottenham’s Betting Odds

It may be that Son Heung-min and Harry Kane saved Spurs’ season with two late assists/goals when 2-1 down at home to West Ham in the Premier League, because Champions League progression looks extremely unlikely.

That was Mauricio Pochettino’s side’s first win in eight matches all told, so expecting the visitors to dig out victory against a team unbeaten at home since April Fools’ Day should be given shorter shrift than 37/20 odds in the betting suggest.
