Spurs v Liverpool – Premier League Betting Guide: 15th Sept 2018

Saturday 15th September 2018

Tottenham Hotspur v Liverpool 12:30

After the International break we return to the Premier League this weekend with all 20 sides in action.

Loads to look forward to but we hit the ground running on Saturday lunchtime as Spurs host Liverpool in what already looks a huge game for the 2018/19 season ahead.

Liverpool have hit the ground running with four straight wins and head into week five as the league leaders on goal difference over Chelsea and Watford. Spurs sit just a few places back in fifth with 9 points and will be looking to bounce back from a 2-1 defeat last time out against Watford.

Looking at the outright Premier League betting, after their good start Liverpool are now as short as 3.75, with Man City still the odds-on favourites at 1.66 – it’s 11.00 Chelsea, 17.00 Spurs and name your price the rest.

The repeat of this fixture last term saw Spurs win 4-1 so they will head into the game full of confidence and the Londoners also took 4 points of Liverpool last season after a draw at Anfield.

Liverpool’s Mo Salah scored in both league fixtures last season so is sure to be popular in the scoring markets, while it goes without saying Spurs’ hitman – Harry Kane – will be their most likely source of goals – he’s scored three times in last season clashes with the Merseysiders.

The match betting is tight – with Liverpool, despite being the away side, just edging it at 2.45, with the draw 3.40 and Spurs on offer at 2.75.

However, with 4 DRAWS in the last 6 league head-to-heads then the stalemate at 3.40 looks good value – two of the last 3 repeat fixtures also ended all-square.

Four of the last six meetings went UNDER 2.5 GOALS, but it is worth nothing both of last season’s clashes had OVER 3.5 GOALS scored – Under 2.5 goals is on offer at 2.30, while Over 2.5 goals can be backed at 1.60.

Spurs fans will also be aware that they generally do well against Liverpool – they’ve lost just one of their last 6 vs the Reds, and not lost at home in their last three.

Both teams to score here looks a solid option too – this has paid out in 4 of the last 5 head-to-heads and with both sides having plenty of firepower then even the 1.53 on this happening again looks fair value.

In summary, the match betting draw option looks the best value, but with 80% of the last 5 clashes seeing both teams score then this is how we are going to play this fascinating ‘week five’ Premier League opener.

BEST BET: BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE @1.53
