The Line: Fulham +900 / Draw +500 / Tottenham -400 -- Over/Under: 2.5
Fulham’s visit to North London is set to be a big day for Tottenham as they open their new stadium. The new White Hart Lane is complete and this is set to be the first time it will see English Premier League football. The stadium is expected to be packed as the Tottenham fans return to their own home stadium after playing at Wembley all of last season. The atmosphere will be huge and that should ensure that this match will be remembered.
Fulham lost their opening round match at home and now are in a situation where they might be looking at 0 points after two matches. The Cottagers would not have expected to lose to Crystal Palace last weekend and if they lose again, things will not be looking good. This side spent big during the summer transfer window and if the result doesn’t happen, there will be problems. This is not a match that Fulham will expect to win but they will hope for an improved performance from their players.
On the other side of the coin, Tottenham will enter this big match having won their opening round fixture away from home at St James Park against Newcastle United. This team is looking very strong and they will be looking stronger at home. Everyone expect Tottenham to win this match and if they can handle the pressure of expectation, they should be good enough to get the job done.
I am predicting Tottenham to win. They are the better team, they are at home and this is a big occasion for the club. These factors should add up to Tottenham winning easily. I am expecting the home side to score many goals and put on a show for the home crowd so this could very easily be a 3-0 or 4-0 victory for the Spurs. Betting on Tottenham winning is not a great idea since we are getting a very short price so the wager I going to suggest is the over 2.5 goals.
