Tottenham V Liverpool Betting Preview 28/11/12
Liverpool face an away trip to White Hart Lane this Wednesday in a game which is surely going to be very entertaining. The last time Liverpool got any points on their travels to Tottenham was back in 2008, a statistic I am sure they will want to put right mid-week. Choose a free bet for this match.
Spurs are going into this game having coming of the back of a great home win against West Ham at the weekend. Despite their inconsistency this season they still lie in seventh place and will go into this match as narrow favourites. Tottenham are priced at 7/5 on Bet 365 to win this game and for the win or draw is 19/50. Considering their recent record against Liverpool at home you certainly wouldn’t put it past them to maintain that record if they play like they did at the weekend. Jermaine Defoe is playing well at the moment having scored two at the weekend and goes into this game at 11/2 to score the first goal and 6/4 anytime on William Hill. I think there will definitely be goals in this game and a price of 4/6 for over 2.5 on William Hill is certainly worth a look. Both sides have proven goal scorers in form and are also known to be a bit shaky at the back at times so I think three or more goals is on the cards.
Liverpool seem to be blowing hot one week and cold the next under Brendan Rogers, making it very hard to predict what sort of performance they are going to put in. Bet 365 has them at 15/8 to win this match and has them to win or draw at 8/15. I believe it is going to be very tricky for Liverpool to come away with all three points, however a draw is certainly achievable. For the two sides to draw is 12/5 on Bet 365. Liverpool have struggled for goals at times this season and without Luis Suarez in the team they certainly wouldn’t be currently eleventh in the league. Suarez’s odds for first goal scorer and anytime scorer are exactly the same as Defoe’s and you can’t really look beyond Suarez for someone else that may pick up the goals for Liverpool.
This should be a very close and entertaining game on Wednesday with plenty of chances for both sides and hopefully quite a few goals. It is a tough one to predict but backing Tottenham to just edge this game 2-1, which on Bet 365 is 8/1, represents good value. They are certainly capable of it when they play at their best and there were promising signs against West Ham at the weekend where they managed to break down a very solid side time and time again. It could quite easily end in a draw, 2-2 would get you 10-1 on Bet 365, however the tip is to opt for Spurs as their home record against Liverpool speaks for itself.
