I rate Tottenham much the superior of these two and make them my strongest bet of the day. To my eyes Birmingham have regressed quite a lot this season and in recent starts at St Andrews they have been riding their luck big time and their "strong" home record is something of a misnomer. In their last four outings at home they have beaten Chelsea and Aston Villa, depite being outplayed in both and losing the attempts on goal count by a combined 41-6 (!) and drawing with both West Ham, who dominated the first half and should have been four up at the break and third tier Brentford, needing an injury time equaliser to take the match into extra time. They had failed to score in three of their four home starts prior to that and are clearly not the force on home soil they were last season. The Villa game was played Wednesday, whilst Spurs have had a very rare free midweek and been able to focus fully on this fixture, hosts are a hard working team, who rely on their fitness to put opponents under pressure, so to my mind, the recovery time here is key. Big game for Spurs who are scoring for fun ( 12 in their last 4) and face massive rivals Chelsea next week in a crunch fixture, they are desperate for the three points today and should collect them.

Tottenham -0.25 1.82 .

Good Luck.
