The Spurs come into this match with their tails between their legs after getting throttled in their last match losing 6-0 to Manchester City.
The six goals the Spurs gave up was the total they had given up in their previous 11 league matches. However, they are back at home this weekend and only slight betting underdogs facing a Manchester United squad that is coming off a surprising draw.
Midweek, most sportsbooks monitored by the new soccer odds section were giving the slight betting edge to Man U at +160 with Tottenham at +163 and a draw line at +230.
Man U could have been all-alone in fourth place in the EPL table, but played to a 2-2 draw against 15th place side Cardiff. What makes the draw even harder to take for Man U is that they gave up the equalizing goal in injury time. The EPL odds on this match continue to move around as the weekend clash looms.
Tottenham is in ninth place in the league table eight points back of league leader Arsenal. The Spurs have to forget about the City match and get back to playing solid defense, as their offense has only scored nine goals in 11 matches.
