Tottenham v Blackburn Tip

29th Apr 2012 | Football

Hoilett found the net last week.
1pt Anytime Goalscorer: Junior Hoilett 9/2 with BetVictor Place Bet

With all the discontent surrounding Tottenham at the moment I find it impossible to back them to win this one at best odds of 2/5 with PaddyPower. Those are remarkably stingy odds for a side who have picked up fewer points than anyone bar Wolves in their last nine outings.

If the form wasn’t enough of a concern then rumours surrounding the possible exits of Redknapp, Bale and now Modric certainly are. When you also consider that all the sides fighting relegation seem capable of finding a little extra at this stage of the campaign, then we have to turn to Blackburn for some value.

Rovers still have the joint-best away goalscoring record in the bottom half of the table and I would always feel more comfortable backing them to find the net then actually win a fixture like this. Arguably, their man of the moment is Junior Hoilett; the Canadian scored a sublime effort in the 2-0 victory over Norwich last weekend.

The 21-year-old scored twice when Rovers last won on their travels in March and then struck again in the next triumph against Sunderland. Blackburn’s slim hopes of survival rest firmly with his partnership with Yakubu in these final few games.

‘The Yak’ has scored more during the season as a whole and is therefore 3/1 (Ladbrokes) in the anytime goalscorer market. I would suggest that on current form the younger, quicker striker is just as likely to pounce. We should therefore take the value on Hoilett at a best price of 9/2 (BetVictor) to score in 90 minutes against struggling Spurs.

*Note that the bookies frequently refer to Junior Hoilett by his birth name of David Hoilett.

Tips & Advice

Money on Donny

Rovers won at Watford in the last round while managerless Fulham are in crisis mode.

Costa Living The Dream

The Spanish international has made a record-breaking start to his new career in England but is still a tasty price to open the scoring at the Etihad.

Other Argentine Can Shine At King Power

United brushed QPR aside 4-0 but this trip to Leicester looks much tougher. Angel Di Maria's compatriot could prove to be a menace for the questionable visiting defence.

Reds Eye Goal Record

If they find the net at Upton Park, Liverpool will have scored in 17 consecutive away matches - a club top-flight record.

The Saturday Acca

Two Midlands rivals could be duelling for promotion this season. We're backing them both today, along with the Gunners.

High Flyers Promise Goals

The Swans and the Saints both occupy Champions League positions at this early stage and both always look likely to score.
