EPL Round 14 - Tottenham v Bournemouth (Sunday 2am AEDT)

Suddnely, life is good again for Tottenham fans and I am predicting the good times to keep on rolling this weekend.

Spurs take on Bournemouth and it's been a little over a week since Jose Mourinho took charge of last season's UEFA Champions League finalists, winning both matches since he took over.

Tottenham opened the Mourinho era with a 3-2 win over West Ham last week while they came from behind to beat Olympiacos 4-2 in Champions League action midweek.

Both performances have highlighted Spurs' creativity, pace and skill, something that has been sorely lacking in recent times.

They face a Bournemouth side which comes into the match off consecutive defeats to Newcastle United and Wolverhampton.

Bournemouth won the previous encounter between the sides 1-0 but their away performances this season haven't given punters any reason to think they can cause an upset this weekend. Their two successes on the road have been against Aston Villa and Southampton so going up against a rejuvenated Spurs outfit shapes as a terribly daunting task.

The $1.35 for Tottenham to win is a bit too short to have something on unless you are playing multis.

I don't mind the option of Bournemouth to be held scoreless in the 'Team To Score' market. Four of the five previous encounters between these sides has seen the losing side held to nil with Tottenham responsible for inflicting three of those.

Tip Bournemouth to be held scoreless at $2.40

NFL Week 13 - Indianapolis Colts v Tennessee Titans (Monday 5am AEDT)

AFC South division rivals will be aiming to bolster their playoff hopes on Monday morning when the Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans clash at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Both teams enter this encounter with 6-5 win-loss records and are currently one game behind the Houston Texans in the pursuit of the AFC South division crown.

The Colts have lost three of their last four games, but they did have backup quarterback Brian Hoyer in place of regular starting quarterback Jacoby Brissett for almost two full games due to Brissett suffering a knee injury.

After brushing aside the Jacksonville Jaguars 33-13 at home in Week 11, the Colts fell short in a 20-17 road loss to the Texans. Whilst running back Jonathan Williams rushed well (26 carriers for 104 yards), Brissett struggled going 16-of-25 for 129 passing yards.

The Colts' passing game will be hindered by the absence of tight end Eric Ebron and wide receiver T.Y. Hilton.

Since Ryan Tannehill replaced Marcus Mariota as the starting quarterback, the Titans have won four of five games. Tennessee's last two wins have been at home against the Kansas City Chiefs (35-32) and Jacksonville Jaguars (42-20).

Tannehill has been terrific, throwing 10 touchdown passes and only three interceptions in his five stars. Running back Derrick Henry has returned to form in the past fortnight with 347 rushing yards and four touchdowns.

The Titans appeal as a slight outsider against the Colts.
