Many people’s idea of the Premier League ‘week 7’ highlight come in the Saturday evening clash between Tottenham and Liverpool.

Both sides have mad great starts to the new 2023/24 season, with Liverpool starting the week with 16 points and Spurs 14 points – while neither side have lost a game yet in the league.

The match betting is tight, with Liverpool just edging it as the favourites at 2.15 despite being the away side, the draw 4.00 and Spurs on offer at 2.87.

Spurs and Liverpool faced-off last season in this fixture that went the way of Liverpool 1-2, while the Reds also took 6 points off the North London club last term.

The great news for the neutrals out there though is this clash tends to produce a fair amount of goals – 10 of the last 13 head-to-heads saw OVER 2.5 GOALS, which can be backed at 1.40, or with 3 of the last 5 seeing 4+ goals, you might be tempted in at the better odds at 2.00 for OVER 3.5 GOALS.

Both teams have also scored in 82% of the last 17 head-to-heads, but this is only 1.36 in the betting.

Liverpool are also unbeaten in 9 of the last 10 repeat fixtures and have won 8 of the last 9 head-to-heads (home and away).

If you are looking for a goalscoring bet, then Liverpool’s Mo Salah, who was on target last weekend in their win over West Ham, also scored 3 goals vs Spurs last season. You can back Salah at 6.00 (1st) or 2.37 (anytime).

The main man for Spurs now is Heung-Min Son after bagging a brace in the North London Derby last Sunday. The South Korean has fired in 5 goals now this season and is on offer at 6.00 (1st) or 2.37 (anytime).

Overall, it’s another top game in prospect and one you feel will have a big bearing on the final positions later in the season, with only two points separating the teams heading into the game.

Both sides were also involved in 4-goal matches last weekend, so more of the same could easily be on the cards.

However, Over 2.5 Goals at just 1.40 looks a tad short, so we are happy to side with both Son and Salah in an SAS approach to score.

If one lands a goal the bet will profit, if both fire home, like they did last week in their games, then we’ll hit the jackpot.
