Tottenham have been in stunning form lately and are coming off a series of really strong results in all competitions. They also exploded in their last match for the Premier League and they will now have a chance to extend their winning streak. Tottenham will play host to Bournemouth on Wednesday, who might be coming off a win but they have been really bad lately.

Tottenham (14-4-0) are coming into this match after a massive away win against Everton over the weekend. It was Everton who took the lead in the first half but Tottenham not only pulled even but were already leading by 3-1 at the end of the first half. They went on to extend their dominance in the second half where they scored three more goals to win by 6-2. That was their third consecutive win and they are now undefeated in their last six (5-0-1). Tottenham are still sitting at the 3rd spot of the league table with 42 points, now two behind Manchester City. They have not been very bad at home so far (5-2-0) where they have conceded just six goals so far. They will come into this match with their usual absences of Dembele, Dier, Janssen, Vertonghen and Wanyama.
On the other hand, Bournemouth (8-8-2) did a great job in their last match when they beat Brighton by 0-2 at home. One of their most promising players, midfielder David Brooks scored once in each half to give his team a much-needed boost. Bournemouth had lost three in a row prior to this win, and a total of seven in their last eight (0-7-1). However, they only failed to score in their last three losses. Bournemouth are now sitting at the 8th spot of the league table with 26 points, one ahead of Leicester and Wolves and one behind Watford. They have been hit-or-miss on the road so far in the season (3-5-0), where they have scored 11 goals and have conceded 14. They have lost four in a row on the road and have failed to score in their last two. Bournemouth will be missing Cook, Gosling and Smith in this match.
Tottenham did a great job last season against Bournemouth, winning by a slim 0-1 in this venue before a massive 4-1 on the road. They are still undefeated against Bournemouth over the years (5-0-1) and have won each of the three matches in this venue, all with clean sheets.
Bournemouth have not been very bad on the road and just might score once here. But Tottenham are coming off a couple of really huge wins and they will surely be in high spirits. I will take the home team to cover the spread on this one.
