A cracking Premier League clash this Wednesday night as table-toppers Tottenham take on the current champions Liverpool, who are sitting second on goal difference – both sides head into his game on 25 points.
The sides also both come here after dropping points last time out. Spurs were held to a 1-1 draw with Palace, with Liverpool also only managing a 1-1 stalemate with Fulham.
Therefore, a huge game in the title race – with Liverpool currently 3.00 in the outright Premier League betting and Spurs 7.00 before this round of games.
The match betting ahead of this game sees Liverpool at 1.75, the draw 3.80, while Spurs are 4.50 to get all three points.
Last season’s repeat fixture ended Liverpool 2-1 Spurs, so this might appeal at 9.00, while Liverpool took 6 points off Spurs in the league last term. In fact, the Reds have only lost 1 of their last 17 in all competitions against Spurs and are unbeaten in their last 9 home league games over the Londoners.
There are several other options to look at too. Both teams have scored in 8 of the last 11 head-to-heads – this can be backed at 1.61, while 6 of the last 8 repeat fixtures saw Over 2.5 Goals – this is on offer at 1.66. Liverpool have also scored in 17 of their last 18 games against Spurs so rarely don’t find the back of the net at least once.
We have, however, seen 4 draws in the last 11 league meetings, so that could represent some value at 3.80.
The scoring markets are dominated by the ‘big gun’ players on both sides. Harry Kane for Spurs, who was on target in their last game against Palace is 6.00 (1st) or 2.40 (anytime), while Liverpool’s Mo Salah, who has scored 5 goals in the last 7 head-to-heads, is 3.75 (1st) or 1.72 (anytime).
It could be a cagey game, especially with Jose Mourhino now in charge at Spurs. Both sides certainly have the firepower to win the game though, but you just feel that the pressure is starting to mount on Liverpool and with several injuries their squad is starting to look a tiny bit bare – albeit still decent.
With that in-mind, the 2.00 on offer on Spurs/Draw in the ‘Double Chance’ market catches the eye, but I think the safer bet is to go with Both Teams to Score at 1.61. As mentioned, Liverpool have scored in 94% of their last 18 games against Spurs, and with the Londoners having the likes of Son and Kane then it will be a shock if they are not having their chances too – especially if they go a goal down and have to chase the game.
JUICESTORM VERDICT: BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE @1.61
