19:30 Tottenham v Brentford: Both Teams To Score

Both teams share the same record over their five most previous games in all competitions; two wins, one draw and two losses. Spurs’ home Premier League record is as inconsistent as you’d expect with three wins and two losses over their last five games in north London.

Brentford’s away record for a promoted side is pretty good, losing just one of their six away games. The Bees’ overall top-flight record has seen them scoring at least one in 10 of their 13 games and with Spurs’ keeping just one clean sheet over their last five at home, you’d expect Brentford to find the back of the net here. The hosts are averaging exactly 1.0 goals per home league game and with Brentford scoring 1.50 and conceding 1.33 per away league game we have to go with Both Teams To Score here.

19:45 Lazio v Udinese: Lazio To Win And Over 1.5 Goals

Lazio have been on the wrong end of two spankings from Juventus and Napoli of late. Maurizio Sarri’s squad is full of potential and, at home, they’ve been excellent – losing just one of their six games. But, away from Rome, they’ve won just one of their seven games played. Over their last five Serie A games at home, Le Aquile have won four and lost one.

Udinese’s away record is rough looking in all honesty, they’ve collected a grand total of two points over their last five on their league travels and over their last seven visits to take on Lazio (in all competitions) they’ve lost six and won just one.

There’s little value in a home win, but in five of Lazio’s seven home games to date they’ve scored at least two goals, so we really should exploit those stats. Udinese have also conceding two or more in three of their last four away games, and that’s why we’ve got with our selection.


19:45 Celtic v Hearts: Celtic To Win And Both Teams To Score

Hearts haven’t beaten Celtic away from home since a Scottish Cup semi-final back in 2012 and that was at Hampton Park. The last time they won at Celtic Park was a League Cup match in 2009 and that’s hardly going to change here. Of the Bhoys’ seven home Premiership games this season they’ve won five and drawn two. For their part, The travelling side have only won two away games all season.

To their credit they’ve scored in six of those seven away games, and Both Teams To Score has landed in four of their last six visits to Glasgow. We see too that Celtic’s defence has been a bit wobbly of late in the league, they’ve conceded four goals in their last four outings and with the away side in good goal-scoring form, both should be getting on the scoresheet here. Add to that, Celtic are enjoying a run of six Premiership wins out of seven, so they’ve obviously the more likely to win here and we’re combining those two bets into one to give us the best value here.

20:15 Man United v Arsenal: Half-Time Draw

Arsenal come into this as the team with the superior form with four wins over their last five games in all competitions. Meanwhile, United have just one win over their last five. The market doesn’t seem to be paying any attention to recent form though, and the Red Devils are odds-on favourites to take the three points here.

At the time of writing it’s unknown whether interim manager Ralf Rangnick will have had his paperwork sorted out to take his place in the United dugout. It’s probably too early for him to have much influence on the team as of yet anyway, and for the time being it’s going to be about steadying the ship.

The pair share the same record over their last five respective home/away games in all competitions with both winning two, drawing one and losing two. Coincidently both were thumped by Liverpool and Man City over those five games. An interesting stat jumped out at us here, the home side have only scored a first-half goal in two of their last five at home, while the Gunners have also only scored an opening period goal in two of their last five on their Premier League outings. With those low-scoring stats, we’re liking the Half-Time Draw bet.
