The Spurs are having big problems with injuries, which has already cost them dearly on several occasions. But, there’s no more room for mistakes. If they want to finish the Premier League season among top 4, they must do all in their power not to lose against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium. If you want to put some money on the Saturday’s clash, make sure first to read our Bournemouth vs Tottenham prediction and betting tips!
Similarly to Tottenham, Bournemouth are also struggling with injuries. A number of first-team players will have to sit out the game due to injury problems. But, unlike Tottenham, Bournemouth don’t have to worry too much about their title position. Whatever happens, they are going to finish somewhere in the middle of the Premier League table.
Still, it seems they’re in a pretty good mood at the moment, especially when it comes to scoring goals. In the last three Premier League rounds, this team has scored 8 goals. Their home form, admittedly, isn’t too impressive, but they’re definitely willing to improve it. And their last chance to do so is this weekend against Tottenham.
Speaking of which, they have a pretty poor record against Tottenham. They’re still without a Premier League win against Tottenham, having lost 6 out of 7 meetings in the 21st century. And putting an end to such a bad statistic is definitely another big motive for them. The question is whether that’s enough for our Bournemouth vs Tottenham prediction to go in the favor of the home side. Probably not, but let’s see how the Spurs are doing.
Last week, they lost to Ajax at home in the Champions League, which means that they need to get ready for the second leg properly, as it’s going to be super-difficult. But, before that, they also need to think about their Premier League position. Right now, the Spurs are at the 3rd place, but they still haven’t secured a place among the top 4. Both Arsenal and Man United still have a chance to leapfrog the Spurs.
Of course, they won’t have to worry about such a possibility if they beat Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon. Moreover, a win on the weekend would give them a confidence boost ahead of the Champions League game with Ajax.
The main reason why our Bournemouth vs Tottenham betting tips are leaning towards the away team is that their injury problems seem to be coming to an end. Harry Kane is still pretty much doubtful, but even he could make a return. Maybe he won’t play from the very beginning, but we could see him featuring in this match.

Bournemouth vs Tottenham Prediction
Tottenham might look like the favorite here, but Bournemouth have been excellent this season when faced against teams from near the top of the table. Of course, they did get hammered by the Spurs in the first half of the season by 5:0, but that means they’re looking for revenge. And revenge doesn’t have to be beating the Spurs; it could be making them really run for their money on Saturday.
