So onto our picks for the weekend, and we start on Saturday at White Hart Lane. Spurs and Stoke both go into this game in decent form and will be hopeful of picking up points in this encounter. Tottenham hold the lofty third spot in the league after recovering well from back-to-back defeats to Manchester United and Chelsea while the Potters have been defying the critics again this season, currently occupying ninth spot in the table. Tony Pulis will be well aware though that Stoke need to improve their away form if they are to progress.
Backing Spurs to win and continue their march on the Big Four, we are staking two Â£2 bets on Harry’s boys winning 2-nil (9/2) and 2-1 (7/1) in which a winning ticket will produce a Â£11 or Â£16 return respectively.
The big match in the Premier League though arrives on Sunday as crisis-club Liverpool face their arch enemy Manchester United at Anfield. (A full match preview can be read here.) Apart from Everton, this is the one game of the season which, regardless of Liverpool’s current plight, the Merseysiders would be desperate to win. And having lost four games on the bounce, the hunger for blood against their nemesis will be heightened that much more.
We believe that the form book will be hurled out the window and Liverpool can upset the odds to get one over on the league leaders. And with tasty odds of 15/8 on a Liverpool win, backing the Reds is made that much easier. As such we’re staking Â£4 on the Scousers, aiming for an Â£11.50 return.
Finally, we are following the form book to bet against two of the worst teams in top flight European football at present.
Over in France, Grenoble are pathetic. It’s now matchday 10 and still Mecha Bazdarevicâ€™s side are seeking their first point of the campaign, while even a goal is some cause of celebration as they have only found the net on four occasions. This weekend they face Nancy who are hardly high-flyers themselves sitting 13th in the table, although they have played three of the big four during that period.
In Germany, after a superb year last season Hertha Berlin have dramatically imploded so far this term. Hertha, who almost defended their way to the Bundesliga title just a few months ago, now boast the leagueâ€™s worst defence with a useless minus 16 goal difference. And to make matters even more bleak, the Berliners have yet to face any of the leagueâ€™s top teams, starting this weekend with the visit of Wolfsburg. The reigning champs may not yet be firing on all cylinders, but after drawing with Besiktas in the Champions League, Armin Vehâ€™s side will want to make amends with a fine display against the leagueâ€™s punching bag.
