Sunderland are in another relegation battle this season and with Big Sam gone, it will be tough for them to manage to stay up. Furthermore this task will not be made any easier as this week the Stadium of Light will get visitors from North London in the form of Tottenham Hotspurs.

Spurs are probably the second best team in England at the moment and they will look to get three easy points as they head up to battle Sunderland. This will not necessarily be an easy game since the Stadium of Light is never an easy place to visit. That being said, they are by far the better team and with the team in such good morale at the moment, I don’t think it is likely that they will lose this game in any manner.

Sunderland will know on the other hand that they have to start winning or at least getting points, especially at home. This will not be easy against Spurs and too be honest I doubt that they have what it takes to get this done in any way. This team has an alright defense but there front line and midfield are just miles behind the rest of the pack and that will surely cost them in the games to come.

So it is pretty simple to pick Tottenham to win this game and for the certainty of the occurrence, we are not getting the worst price. It is granted that Spurs are at the Stadium of Light but this might be a good banker bet if anyone if looking for that. Both teams not to score is the other bet that I like in this game since Sunderland just don’t have any goals in them anymore.

 

Pick:
Tottenham
