Tottenham Hotspur head into this clash on the back of an impressive four-match unbeaten run that has seen them sour to fourth place on the Barclays Premier League points table. They have now won all but two of their last nine matches in all competition and are one of the most in-form sides in the league.
Reading, on the other hand, are in totally contrasting form, and while they did manage to defeat West Ham this Saturday, their seven-match losing streak is still pretty much fresh in our minds. Moreover, they haven’t won a single game away from home so far this season and there is nothing that suggests they could get off the mark on Tuesday against an extremely in-form Spurs side.
These two teams met earlier this season in September when a Jermaine Defoe brace and a goal from Gareth Bale gave Andre Villas-Boas’ men a three goal lead before the Royals’ Hal Robson-Kanu netted a late consolation for the Royals. A repeat of that lopsided result could very well be on the cards once again.
Therefore, backing Spurs with Pinnacle Sports‘ Asian Handicap offer of -1.5 goals at odds of 2.06 is an interesting play here.
