No side have kept more clean sheets in the Premier League this season than Tottenham and with injury-hit Hull City in town punters should be filling their boots on a low scoring Spurs win, with 2-0 (8/1) at the forefront of any punting attack.
An outright win for the hosts is 2/5, with the draw 16/5 and 31/4 available on Hull to register only their second win in the last 28 Premier League matches on the road.
Tottenham haven’t won a home game by more than two goals in 28 attempts.
Not since hammering five past Newcastle United in 2012 have the north London locals been treated to a hefty home win.
White Hart Lane may have seen 16 wins in that 28 game period but rarely do Spurs put teams to the sword as manager Andre Villas-Boas employs a safety first approach when his strikers fire the troops into a commanding position.
There is no reason to think that Spurs can’t build on their impressive 2-0 downing of Aston Villa last weekend and ditch Hull by the same score line at an attractive price.
Under Steve Bruce, Hull have only scored 30 goals in 27 away games.
Scoring goals is seen as a secondary commandment to City’s head honcho with keeping it tight at the back the key to Bruce’s philosophy about winning football matches.
In their fantastic promotion season, Hull only were the 14th top scorers in the Championship and have continued their defensive mentality at English football’s top table, firing just seven goals in eight games.
Hull’s most potent attacking players Robbie Brady and Sone Aluko are out injured.
Bruce has been bemoaning his side’s injury list ahead of the game with Brady and Aluko, who have scored over half of City’s league goals between them this season, both nursing niggling complaints.
Aluko has a calf injury while Brady will travel to White Hart Lane but is struggling to start after he was rushed back to first-team action for the trip to Everton.
The Tigers are already without first-team regulars Allan McGregor (thigh), Danny Graham (knee), Jake Livermore, who is ineligible because of the terms of his Spurs loan deal, and Robert Koren (foot).
