Jermain Defoe will once more return to the Tottenham line-up keen to prove his worth to Andre Villas Boas and equally famished when it comes to goals.
With bwin’s double/triple money offer rolled out for the visit of FC Sheriff it would be rude not to cash in while offering the sometime England international striker moral support in his predicament as he tries to oust underwhelming summer signing Roberto Soldado.
The former West Ham man is 2/1 to open the scoring with your wager set to double or triple in value if he registers once or twice more at White Hart Lane.
The pint-sized second-fiddle has scored in five of this seven starts this term.
An ever-ready goalscorer when he is called in to understudy the £25m Spaniard, Defoe has made the most of his opportunities to impress in this competition, registering in every Europa League game the Lilywhites have been involved in this season.
Having scored four times including at hat-trick at home to Maribor in last year’s group stages he’s clearly a man who has a taste for the tender flesh of the lesser-spotted European minnow.
Five of the Spurs number 1+8’s goals in 2013/14 have opened the scoring.
When all around him from fans to fellow players are beginning to wonder where the next Tottenham goal is coming from Defoe has made a habit of being on hand to relieve their frustrations.
This happy knack makes swerving the 7/20 about him notching at any time during the match in favour of the greater riches a first goalscorer bet promises all the more worthwhile a risk to run.
Defoe has already posted three two–goal hauls since the start of the season.
If you’d want your double/triple money punt to be resting on the shoulders of one man taking to the Tottenham turf then it’s Defoe who tends to be a bit like a fox in the chicken coop once he gets started.
He helped himself to multiple goals on five separate occasions last term for Spurs and England is strongly fancied to at least double bwin shrewdies’ dough against the Molodovans.
