Tottenham kick off their Europa League campaign with a home clash against Lazio and the North London outfit are odds-on to start with a win, BetVictor making them odds-on at 37/40 to pick up maximum points at White Hart Lane.
Confidence is high in the Spurs camp following Sunday’s impressive performance at Reading so it’s easy to see why the bookies make them such strong favourites but punters would be wise to tread carefully.
Andre Villas-Boas won’t consider this competition to be one of his main priorities and consequently will inevitably make plenty of changes while the Serie A side arrive in the capital in stunning form domestically.
Elsewhere, last season’s runners-up Athletic Bilbao are a home banker at 3/10 with Stan James as they host Israeli side Hapoel Kiryat Shmona and staying in Spain, William Hill price Levante at 4/9 as they host Helsingborgs, beaten by Celtic over two legs in the Champions League qualifiers.
Treble on Lazio (+1), Athletic Bilbao, Levante – 5/2 (Stan James)
