Our snapshot previews of all three televised Premier League fixtures on Sunday, kicking off with the North London Derby at the Emirates Stadium at midday.
Arsenal v Tottenham
Sunday 6th November / 12pm
|Under 2.5||Total Goals||23/20||Betfair|
|Olivier Giroud (ew)||First Goalscorer||9/2||Paddy Power|
The Gunners are odds-on favourites with the bookmakers to beat their big rivals at the Emirates on Sunday, despite their last two meetings here both finishing 1-1.
Tottenham, unbeaten this season, are available at best odds of 10/3 with Coral, but they have only won at this stadium once in 13 attempts (L7, D5) in all competitions.
Thus, a draw looks the best option at 13/5 with Bet365, especially as Spurs have drawn 5 of their 10 league games so far this season (four of which were 1-1).
Mauricio Pochettino’s men have only conceded 5 goals in those 10 games, and this looks set to be a tight, low scoring affair, so we like odds-against on Under 2.5 Goals.
We also suggest backing another 1-1 at 6/1 with Bet365, who refund losing Correct Score bets on all games that finish 0-0 (both these sides have drawn 0-0 recently).
Finally, we recommend an each-way bet on Olivier Giroud – scorer of three goals in two games in the last 7 days – to score first at best odds of 9/2 with Paddy Power.
Liverpool v Watford
Sunday 6th November / 2.15pm
|Liverpool||Match Result & Both Teams To Score||19/10||Coral|
|Philippe Coutinho (ew)||First Goalscorer||11/2||Paddy Power|
|Liverpool 3-1||Correct Score||11/1||Bet365|
|Liverpool 4-1||Correct Score||18/1||Bet365|
Despite away games at Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs already, Liverpool have 23 points after 10 games, 5 more than champions Leicester had at the same stage last season.
In short, they look certain to contend for the title this season, but need to win these sort of home games to do so – last season they drew 8 and lost 3 times at Anfield.
It’s also worth remembering that, for all their attacking threat, Liverpool have kept just one clean sheet this season and so we suggest backing them ‘to win and both teams to score’ – a bet which would have won in 6 of their last 7 league games.
We are big fans of Philippe Coutinho and the Brazilian looks worth backing each-way at 11/2 to score first given he has scored in two of Liverpool’s last three games here.
Finally, have a punt on a couple of high scoring Correct Scores – we like the 3-1 and 4-1 home wins at stand-out odds of 11/1 and 18/1 respectively with Bet365.
Leicester v West Brom
Sunday 6th November / 4.30pm
|Over 2.5||Total Goals||5/4||Betfair|
|Over 3.5||Total Goals||16/5||Betfair|
|Salomon Rondon (ew)||First Goalscorer||8/1||Paddy Power|
Claudio Ranieri’s men have just one win from their last five league games, scoring only five goals, while West Brom have no wins to their name over the same period.
The bookies make Leicester odds-on favourites, at 4/5 generally, but we never like to back teams after a midweek European away game, and West Brom appeal at 19/4.
Despite their lack of goals recently, the last three league games between these clubs have seen both sides score two or more, including 2-2 in this fixture last season.
So, despite their recent lack of goals, we think bets on Over 2.5 Goals and Over 3.5 Goals are reasonable at best odds of 5/4 and 16/5 respectively – both with Betfair.
Finally, Salomon Rondon has scored 2 goals in the Baggies 5 away league games this season and also scored the first goal in both games between these two last season.
Back the Venezuelan striker to do so again at best odds of 8/1 with Paddy Power.
