<1.63> <3.40> <4.50> MATCH CODE: 0302

Spurs have been leaky defensively all season, but they sure can score goals. Middlesbrough on the other hand haven't been scoring much, preferring to eke out 1-0 wins. Downing is their top scorer with 6 goals to his name, whereas Robbie Keane and Berbatov have notched up 14 and 11 goals respectively. It's hard to see Middlesbrough taking this one as their away form has been bad this season - 3 wins, 8 losses and the rest draws - disregarding their excellent yet unlucky loss against Chelsea. Spurs on the other hand, under the Ramos renaissance, have looked great upfront and seem to have stemmed the leak at the back (disregarding the match against Newcastle, which I will regard as an aberration due to the Keegan renaissance). I would say Spurs have enough quality to see off Middlesbrough convincingly, with Robert Huth still sidelined.

- Roland's prediction: $10 on Tottenham @ 1.63 = $16.30
$5 on Tottenham -1.5 @ 2.80 = $14

i agree with roland. Tottenham to win this one. they have the better side on paper, and betting logic suggests they will win. u see, boro have only lost one in their last five, and that was an unlucky loss against chelsea. spurs on the other hand, have only won once in their last six. boro's good form should end tomorrow night - as nelly furtado famously said "why do all good things come to an end? come to an end? come to an...Why do all good things come to an end?" and she's right. all good things do come to an end. like my betting win streaks, and boro's good form. i say take tottenham, but don't be so confident on it, like roland is.

- Eddy's prediction: $5 on tottenham @ 1.63 = $8.15
