The weekend’s Premier League programme kicks-off with an intriguing-looking London derby showdown between second-place Tottenham and Chelsea, who are currently in fourth and bookies are struggling to call the White Hart Lane tussle.
Some firms can’t separate the two teams, BetVictor for example chalking both up at 17/10 and although Ladbrokes lean tentatively towards the visitors, rating the hosts as slight outsiders at 7/4, bets on Stan James’s 12/5 about the stalemate are expected to be plentiful.
Also set to be popular are Skybet’s 11/2 for the clash to finish one-each and Stan James’s 9/2 marked against both halves being level, however it’s bet365’s 10/3 for the pair to play out a score draw that really stands out given that both teams should score (4/5, BetVictor).
If there is to be a winner, Spurs look the most likely, so they’re worth considering in betway’s handicaps, where they benefit from a goal start at 4/9 or alternatively, Andre Villas-Boas’s men are 10/11 to get the better of his former club in Paddy Power’s ‘Draw No Bet’ market.
Finally in attack, Tottenham’s Roberto Soldado has struck twice in the league this season and he’s 2/1 via BetVictor to add to his tally at some point while at the other end Oscar is 10/3 (William Hill) to strike at any time.
Tottenham v Chelsea score draw – 10/3 (bet365)
