Two English Premier League matches take place on Sunday; Spurs v Manchester United is the headline game whilst Bournemouth go to Everton.
Note, odds quoted are correct at the time of writing but are subject to change.
Everton v Bournemouth
Match Result Betting
Everton 15/20 Draw 28/10 Bournemouth 15/4
Everton have slipped into the bottom half of the table on the back of 4 defeats in their last 5 outings. They have won just 1 of their last 8, a 5-1 thumping of Burnley away from home on Boxing Day. Recent home games have seen points dropped with defeats to Leicester (1-0) and Spurs (6-2) and draws with Watford (2-2) and Newcastle (1-1). Their home record comprises of 5 wins, 3 draws and 3 defeats with 18 goals scored and 16 conceded and 6 of those matches have gone over 2.5 goals.
Bournemouth are level on points with Everton and they too have been finding wins hard to come by. They have won 2 of the last 11 with 8 defeats in that sequence followed by a 3-3 draw at home to Watford in their most recent league outing. They crashed out of the FA Cup at home to Brighton last week and a total of 40 goals conceded is higher than some of the clubs in the relegation zone. Of 10 Bournemouth road trips 8 have gone over 2.5 goals.
The first meeting this season saw the teams draw 2-2.
Bet: Total goals and both teams to score?, over 2.5 and yes at even money
In their current form I couldn’t go near Everton at odds on but Bournemouth have been shipping too many goals for me to be tempted to oppose the home side. I’ll look to the goals markets and side both sides finding the net in a game of 3 goals or more in total.
Spurs v Man United
Match Result Betting
Spurs 11/10 Draw 5/2 Man United 5/2
After 21 rounds of matches Spurs can be found in third spot, 6 points behind Liverpool, 2 behind Manchester City and 4 in front of fourth placed Chelsea. With a record of 16 wins and 5 defeats against their name Spurs are the only top flight side who have yet to draw a league match this season. Their record at Wembley comprises of 6 wins and 3 defeats with 18 goals scored and half that number conceded. They were on the wrong end of a shock result in their most recent home match which saw Wolves come from 1-0 down to win 3-1 but they bounced back with a 3-0 win at Cardiff in their latest Premier League outing.
United have reeled off 4 straight league wins and they finished the previous round of matches in sixth place, 3 points behind fifth placed Arsenal and all of 10 behind Spurs. Their new lease of life since Mourinho departed has been achieved against some of the Premier League’s lesser lights but 14 goals in those 4 recent victories bodes well for their biggest test since a 3-1 defeat at Liverpool in mid December.
Harry Kane has scored 14 league goals for Spurs whilst Son has 8 and Lucas 6.
Martial and Lukaku have both scored 8 league goals for United this season and Pogba now has 7
When the teams met at Old Trafford early in the current campaign Spurs cruised to a 3-0 win with the goals coming from Kane and a brace from Lucas.
Bet: Anytime goalscorer Harry Kane at 19/20
Given Man United have yet to face the type of quality they come up against here since they changed coach I’m tempted by the home win but I see Harry Kane to oblige “anytime” as a better bet.
