Marquee match of the week
Spurs vs City will be a cracking contest. Both the teams will be fatigued after their midweek UEFA Champions League fixtures. Manchester City escaped with a draw against Celtic, in a match in which Raheem Sterling scored for both the teams. Tottenham won against CSKA. The head to head record between these teams is 50-50, quite literally. Totenham have won 51 matches, against City’s 50. But Manchester City has the advantage in recent history. They have won eight of the last 12 matches against Tottenham. Spurs will take solace from the fact that they have won the last two encounters with Manchester City. A draw is a smart bet for online betting.
Smart picks of the week
Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal have supposedly easy games. But when Liverpool play against the so-called weak opponent, it is time to sit back and take notice. They have this tendency to surprise everyone with a poor showing against the minnows. They are travelling to Swansea. There are attractive odds for a Swansea win and draw.
Burnley have blown hot and cold in the season, having registered two wins and three losses. Arsenal have been at their magisterial self over the last couple of weeks. Arsenal has a near perfect H2H record against Burnley. Still, if Burnley has a field day, Arsenal can have a nightmarish outing.
The best odds of online betting of this week are for Leicester City vs Southampton. Check out the odds at 12Bet.
