Tottenham under siege from killer Wolves

The men from Molineux have some pedigree. Not only were Wolves the first team in the league to beat Manchester United this season but they have also beaten Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool this season.

If they go down on the final day of the season, at least they have taken some Premier League scalps on the way.  Wolves are 9/5 to win the match, the draw is 23/10 and the away win is 6/4. Tottenham are fighting for a Champions League spot and need the points.

Chelsea beat Man United earlier in the week and Manchester City can get three points against Wigan on Saturday. It will be difficult to predict the Tottenham starting eleven because Redknapp will also be focused on their cup game against AC Milan on Wednesday.

Wolves have a number of injury problems ahead of the clash. Edwards and Dave Jones both have leg injuries, Mouyokolo is out with a knee problem and Stephen Hunt has not recovered from his calf strain. O'Hara will not be able to take any part in the match because Tottenham is his parent club.

Bale may play a part in the game but Van der Vaart is definitely unavailable. Spurs have kept just one clean sheet in their last fourteen Premier League away games and King, Corluka, Woodgate and Kaboul are all sidelined.

Spurs have failed to score in only two of their last twenty league matches away from home and both teams to score is 3/4. A bet that has more appeal is the 21/20 for over 2.5 goals, both teams are capable of scoring goals and they both need the points.

Wolves would look a good bet to win at 9/5 but they also have awful injury problems and the even money Wolves draw no bet looks a more secure bet.  Tottenham have been beaten by the likes of Wigan, Blackpool and West Ham this season and they may win on paper but the Wolves players are very passionate and they will not be walked over.

One player who has yet to shine this season is Defoe, he has overcome a knock he suffered in Tottenham's training camp in Dubai and will start the game. He is 5/1 to grab the first goal and he will definitely hit top form soon.

Spurs are fantastic at recouping points from losing positions and they arguably have the strongest bench in the league. There is quality throughout the squad and a tempting punt could be Wolves to lead at half time and not win at 10/1 or Tottenham at 9/1 to come from behind and win.

Tottenham's defence is weak and a Redknapp rollicking at half time is often the tonic for a Spurs comeback.  Spurs' players may well have Milan on the mind and I fancy them to beat the Italians on Wednesday but the Even money Wolves draw no bet definitely holds some appeal.
