Luton Town vs Tottenham HotspurEnglish Premier League, KO: 12:30 Oct 7, 2023, Kenilworth Road
TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR will be looking to continue their unbeaten start to the Premier League season when they take on Luton Town at Kenilworth Road on Saturday lunchtime.
Spurs have been reinvigorated since the arrival of Ange Postecoglou, with the attack-minded Aussie swiftly implementing a proactive brand of football that is producing results.
Last time out, Tottenham picked up their fifth league victory of the season with a last-gasp 2-1 win over nine-man Liverpool.
That triumph saw the capital club leapfrog both Arsenal and Liverpool into second place in the table and another victory at Luton this weekend would see Spurs move to the summit of the standings, at least temporarily.
After picking up their first-ever Premier League point at home to Wolves a fortnight ago, the Hatters then went on to earn their maiden top-flight victory with a 2-1 success at Everton last Saturday.
However, a deflating 2-1 defeat at home to fellow newly-promoted side Burnley on Tuesday night will have brought Rob Edwards' side back down to earth.
Luton's last win against Tottenham came way back in 1987 and the bookmakers' odds suggest the long wait will continue, with the home side big outsiders at 6/1 (William Hill) while a share of the Kenilworth Road spoils pays 18/5 (William Hill).
Tottenham Hotspur are red hot 9/20 (Bet 365) favourites to pick up what would be their third Premier League away win of the season.
Tottenham are too short to side with at the aforementioned quote so I'll get creative and merge Tottenham to win, Over 1 Tottenham Goal and Heung-min Son to have a shot on target at 4/5 with Bet 365.
As already alluded to, Spurs are enjoying a new lease of life under Ange Postecoglou and they will be in high spirits coming into this game following last week's 2-1 win over Liverpool.
Not only did that victory preserve Postecoglou's unbeaten start to life in the Premier, but it also means that this side have scored at least two goals in each of their seven top-flight tussles this term.
That doesn't bode well for a Luton side that have yet to keep a clean sheet in the Premier League this season, shipping multiple strikes in four of their seven assignments to date.
As such, I'm more than happy to back high-flying Spurs to secure another three points here and to score a couple of goals in the process, however, to round off the Bet Builder, I'll also go with Heung-min Son to have at least one shot on target.
The South Korean superstar has been central to Tottenham's fast start to the season, not to mention he has averaged 1.6 shots per game in the Premier League this season so far.
In fact, this Bet Builder would have paid out in each of Tottenham's last three Premier League victories and I see no reason to oppose the same combination at Kenilworth Road this weekend.
I'm also prepared to take it one step further and back the aforementioned Son to score anytime at 23/20 with William Hill.
Only Erling Haaland has scored more Premier League goals than the Spurs skipper this season and he looks a value price to continue his current hot-streak in front of goal against the Hatters.
