Key Points to Consider
Bournemouth, coming off a 5-2 road loss against Manchester United, have five losses, one draw and zero wins in their last six overall. Tottenham Hotspur, coming off a 1-0 home win against Everton, have two wins, two draws and two losses in their last six overall.
Momentum: Bournemouth has been on a downward trend — losing their last five games in the Premier League.
Head-to-Head: These two sides last met in Premier League action on November 30, 2019 and Tottenham Hotspur won 3-2.
Simulations I have run project Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son, Joshua King, David Brooks and Lucas Moura as the players most likely to score (three of these five players are from Tottenham Hotspur).
There is a 33.7 percent chance of a draw. In simulations where the game is not a draw, Tottenham Hotspur, at 42.2 percent, are heavy favorites to beat Bournemouth, who have just a 24.1 percent chance to win at home.
The leading scorer for Tottenham Hotspur is Harry Kane with a 35 percent chance of scoring one or more goals. When he has at least one goal, Tottenham Hotspur has a 70 percent chance to win.
Bournemouth will be at home, pressured to get at least one point and they will be well-rested. Tottenham Hotspur had a tough game against Everton last Monday and they’re not exactly lighting the world on fire as of late. Not to mention that they have nothing to play for. I will take a chance on the draw at this price.
