Yesterday was a day that didn’t follow the script with regards to our betting tips. The most shocking of results saw bottom placed Sheffield United claim a win against the Red Devils at Old Trafford. One of the most unexpected results you’ll see all season!
For our straight win picks yesterday, we had a 50% success as Barcelona and Juventus claimed wins but Manchester United and Vitesse were left stunned respectively.
For the goal market, only two out of four played out correctly once again. Sevilla and Juventus did justice to this category while AZ Alkmaar and Utretch could only score one goal. There was a goalless stalemate at Stamford Bridge for Thomas Tuchel’s first game in charge of Chelsea against Wolves.
For the goal-scorer section, we equally saw yet another 50% success as Messi and Morata found the back of the net with Maddison and El Nesyri firing blanks.
Not much games are on the cards today but there are some games lying in wait that we wouldn’t want to miss.
Featured Match: Tottenham vs Liverpool
Having previously been tipped for Premier League glory, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool find themselves on the periphery of the title-chasing pack as they prepare to lock horns in the capital on Thursday evening.
The two English powerhouses were neck-and-neck at the top of the table during the early stages of the campaign, but dismal spells of form have seen Spurs slip to fifth while Liverpool only just remain in the top four.
The hosts head into this game having enjoyed a 4-1 win over Wycombe Wanderers in the FA Cup, whereas Liverpool were dumped out in the fourth round by Manchester United in a 3-2 thriller.
Liverpool are the only team in the top 13 without a win in their last five league matches, Liverpool’s hard-earned crown is slowly slipping off amid their alarming goal drought. On the other hand, Tottenham have five wins from their last six bookies across all competitions.
Only one point separates both sides and whoever wins could move up to fourth place on the standings. One thing is certain, we’re expecting an exciting game at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium tonight.
Both Teams to Score
Liverpool are yet to score in the Premier League in 2021 but this game looks like they could break their drought. More so, they might have lost to Manchester United last time out but they showed the attacking potent we know they have. Tottenham are unbeaten in their last four games and they’ll be aiming to keep that run intact as well. Liverpool will also be aiming for a return to winning ways and that should see both teams take it to each other and score at both ends. Bet9ja have 1.56 odds, Bet365 have 1.61 and 1xbet have 1.64.
Over 2.5 goals
Tottenham have scored at least two goals in three out of their last five Premier League games and don’t seem to have any problem scoring this season. Liverpool are struggling at the moment but we can still see them grabbing a goal or two tonight. Bet9ja have 1.68 odds, Bet365 have 1.72 and 1xbet have 1.79.
Son has impressed for Spurs this season with 12 league goals alongside Harry Kane and is only one from top scorer Mohamed Salah. He has not scored in his last two league outings but he’ll fancy his chances of scoring against a Liverpool side that are currently broken in defence. There could be value here with Bet9ja and Bet365 offering 2.75 odds for him to score.
The League’s top scorer has not found the back of the net in his last four outings but he’ll be hoping to end that tonight. He’ll be coming into this game with some confidence after a brace against Manchester United and that should see him sharp in attack and eager to get on the score-sheet and fire his side back to winning ways. Bet365 have 1.80 odds for him to score while Bet9ja have theirs at 1.90.
Eredivisie leaders Ajax take on second from bottom Williem II and we can only see the game going one way. Williem II are without a win in their last five league games and we don’t see them claiming a win tonight either. Ajax have won their last three games in the league and they’ll be looking to consolidate their lead at the top with another win tonight. The bookies are only offering 1.10 for them to win.
Napoli to beat Spezia Over to the Coppa Italia, Napoli will be aiming for a spot in the semi-final when they take on Spezia. Gattuso’s men lost last time out to Hellas Verona and this fixture is a good chance for them to get back to winning ways and also move further in their chances of silverware. We expect them to take the win tonight. Bet9ja and Bet365 have 1.33 odds while 1xbet have 1.38.
Finally, we move to the Copa del Rey where Athletic Bilbao take on Segunda B side Alcoyano. Bilbao have proven themselves this season to be decent and we can see them claiming another win against ‘lesser’ opposition. Bilbao already have one title this season and who knows if they have their eyes on a second. Bet365 have 1.53 odds, Bet9ja have 1.60 and 1xbet have 1.63.
Over 2.5 Goals
With 60 league goals scored, Ajax are currently one of the highest scoring sides in Europe. Three of their last five games have also seen over 2.5 tip play out correctly. Taking on a side with one of the worst defences in the Eredivise, we expect a good number of goals today. Bet9ja have 1.16 odds, 1xbet have 1.19 and Bet365 have 1.20.
Five out of Napoli’s last six games have seen over 2.5 goals. The Partenopei have scored a good number of goals this season and we can see that feat repeating itself once again tonight against an opposition they are expected to win. Bet9ja and Bet365 have 1.50 odds while 1xbet have 1.51.
Rotterdam take on Twente in the Eredivise and we’re expecting the over 2.5 tip to come through as well. Both sides have faltered in defence this season and a good number of their games have seen high-scoring results. Both sides lost their last league outings and they’ll be eager to score today and that should see a good number of goals in play. Bet9ja have 1.60 odds, Bet365 have 1.63 and 1xbet have 1.71.
The Nigerian forward marked his return from injury in Napoli’s 3-1 defeat to Hellas Verona on Sunday. He came from the bench and played for about 25 minutes. Given he hasn’t played much this season, he could be given the nod upfront and he’s a good shout to get on the score-sheet provided he starts. Bet365 have 1.50 odds for him to score while Bet9ja have it better at 1.76.
He is yet to score in his last five league games but he remains Ajax’ top scorer with nine goals to his name this season. Given the weak opposition tonight, there is a strong chance he could get in on the goals and up to double digits in the league for the season. Bet365 have 1.44 odds while Bet9ja have theirs at 1.60.
