We preview both of the televised Premier League games on Saturday featuring Spurs v Watford at White Hart Lane and Bournemouth v Chelsea at Dean Court.
Tottenham v Watford
|Watford (+2)||Asian Handicap||10/13||BetVictor|
|Totenham 1-0||Correct Score||13/2||Bet365|
|Deli Alli (ew)||First Goalscorer||9/2||Paddy Power|
Tottenham have won 13 of their 15 league games at White Hart Lane this season (D2), conceding just 8 goals, while the Hornets have won just 3 on the road (D3, L8).
So, it’s no surprise to see Mauricio Pochettino’s men at just 1/4 (generally), with the visitors available at as big as 16/1 and the draw at 11/2 – both with BetVictor.
Spurs still have an outside hope of overhauling Chelsea in the title race after securing a late victory in midweek against Swansea – they are 11/1 with Ladbrokes.
But it may be that this game will be tighter than some might expect – last season Spurs won this fixture 1-0 and we suggest backing Watford on the Asian Handicap with a 2 goal start at 10/13, whereby you only lose if Tottenham win by 3 clear goals.
Spurs have only won 4 of their 15 home games by a 3 goal margin or more, while Watford have only been beaten by 3 goals or more once in their 14 away games.
Bournemouth v Chelsea
|Chelsea 1-0||Correct Score||7/1||Bet365|
|Chelsea 2-0||Correct Score||7/1||Bet365|
|Eden Hazard (ew)||First Goalscorer||5/1||Bet365|
|Under 2.5||Total Goals||11/10||Betfair|
The Blues’ away form is the best in the Premier League, with 10 wins from 15 games (D3, L2), conceding just 13 goals – although only scoring 23 themselves.
So, this has all the hallmarks of being a low scoring away win – back Chelsea to win 1-0 & 2-0 with Bet365 who refund losing Correct Score bets on games that end 0-0.
Eden Hazard was once again outstanding going forward against Manchester City on Wednesday night and we’ll take him to score the first goal once again at 5/1.
Finally, we also suggest backing Under 2.5 Goals at a best price of 11/10 at Betfair.
