As you can see by the odds this one it a total mismatch. Tottenham, a legitimate EPL contender, currently sits in 5th spot with eight points while Sunderland is tied at the very bottom with just one.
They have yet to win a game in the current EPL campaign and are certainly a likely squad for relegation.
The only unknown is how the Spurs will respond to their mid week Champions League loss to Monaco.
The results speak for themselves. Four EPL matches and just one point to show for them – a draw vs. Southampton. The lone victory since the season began was a 1-0 victory over Shrewsbury in the Capital One Cup.
Though it should come as no surprise the greatest challenge for Sunderland is lack of goal scoring.
They have not scored more than one goal in any match this season. It is hard to win if you can’t generate any offense.
Forward Jermain DeFoe has scored two goals in the current campaign. He has been a reliable source of scoring in the past but beyond that there is not a lot of support.
He is familiar with The Lane having left Spurs in 2014 for the MLS.
Adding to Sunderland’s woes for this week has to be the fact that Tottenham has given up the fewest goals in the EPL – just two.
That is the same amount as Everton who just posted a clean sheet against Sunderland in their last match.
The Spurs may not grab headlines with the like of Manchester United or Chelsea but they are certainly among the haves in the EPL. They finished third in the standings last year and can repeat that performance.
They did make a big late move however, bringing in Moussa Sissoko from Newcastle.
They have high hopes for the French national but all he has delivered so far is a yellow card while suiting up two times.
Son Heung-Min was acquired more than a year ago but has struggled to find a role with the Spurs.
He did find the back of the net twice in an easy win over Stoke but he has found if difficult to secure a place in the regular lineup.
Harry Kane is one of the great young players of the EPL. Last year he scored 32 goals but has gotten off to a slow start with just one.
Erik Lamela has been very good in the midfield and should create some opportunities for him soon enough.
Free Sunderland vs. Tottenham EPL Prediction:
It has been a while since Sunderland took a match from Tottenham. My definition of a while, how about 14 games going all the way back to 2008. This does not look like a streak breaker coming up.
The Spurs are getting healthier with the return of Mousa Dembele to the lineup and that is not a good thing for Sunderland.
4* Free EPL Betting Pick: Tottenham -1.5
There is no value on the moneyline here and not a ton on the total but the goal line seems like a pretty good play. Based on performances to date there is a great chance that Tottenham posts a clean sheet.
Next up after Sunderland is a Capital One match vs. Gillingham. The Spurs might be a little sluggish coming of the Champions League loss but they won’t be looking to far ahead. They will win that match with ease too.
EPL Free Score Prediction: Tottenham 3 – Sunderland 0
