Brentford And Draw

After lashing in a 9/1 Bet Builder from the Scottish Premiership last week, it’s time for Premier League action south of the border to return on Boxing Day, with Brentford v Tottenham kicking off proceedings.

The hosts stunned champions Manchester City at the Etihad before the World Cup break, with Thomas Frank’s men winning 2-1.

Brentford will be hoping to build on that victory and their home form has been impressive this season, with the Bees losing just one of their seven games.

Tottenham are fourth in the league heading into this one but their form dipped before the break, with Antonio Conte’s men losing three of their last five.

Spurs have won just two of their last five games on the road so we’re siding with Brentford And Draw on the Double Chance market.

Over 2.5 Goals

With it being the first game back after the World Cup, we’re expecting a few players to be struggling for match fitness. That could lead to a few mistakes and hopefully a handful of goals. We like the look of Over 2.5 Goals, a selection which has landed in Tottenham’s last four Premier League games. There have also been three or more goals in three of Brentford’s last five outings.

Tottenham’s Premier League games average 3.5 goals per game this season, while Brentford’s average is 3.2 goals per fixture. We’re expecting that to continue on Boxing Day!

Harry Kane to Score or Assist

If anyone’s going to be an attacking threat for Tottenham, it’s their star man Harry Kane.

The England forward, who will be desperate to forget his World Cup penalty miss and kick on in the Premier League, has been sensational this season.

Kane has netted 12 times and chipped in with one assist in 15 league appearances this campaign.

The 29-year-old will have numerous shots and we all know about his passing ability to create chances for the likes of Son Heung-min and Dejan Kulusevski. Harry Kane to Score or Assist is our third selection.

Ivan Toney to Have 2 or More Shots on Target

Like Kane is Tottenham’s attacking threat, Ivan Toney is Brentford’s main man.

The forward has scored 11 times and assisted three goals in 16 appearances this season, including a brace in Brentford’s win at Man City before the World Cup break.

Toney averages around three shots per game and he’s also an aerial threat from set pieces. He should have plenty of chances against Spurs.

Toney to Have 2 or More Shots on Target wraps up our Bet Builder!
