West Ham take on Fulham at Upton Park and the game of the day has to be Portsmouth’s visit to White Hart Lane to take on their old boss Harry Redknapp and his new side Tottenham.
West Ham v Fulham is up first, now these teams do not score alot of goals between them, Fulham’s last four away games have ended 0-0 and in their last 6 away games have scored just 2 goals and conceded 2 goals, it’s no suprise that the odds for over 2.5 goals stands at 2.42. The last time there was over 2.5 goals in a Fulham away game was August 2008 when they lost 2-1 at Hull. This game has under 2.5 goals written all over it so my only bet on this game is:
Over 2.5 goals, £30 at odds of 1.7.
The later game is Tottenham v Portsmouth, on first look it could be said nothing has improved since Harry arrived but a win today will see them go from bottom of the league to 12th! that’s how tight it is in the bottom half of the table.
I think Spurs will get their act in gear today and we should hopefully see an entertaining game, my bets:
Over 2.5 goals, £20 at odds of 2.02
Draw Lay, £40 at odds of 3.95
It’s refreshing to see at this point in the season the top 4 separated by just 3 points, even Arsenal in 5th are just 6 points off the top, it’s a hard one to call but with United at the summit you have to say they are favourites, unfortunately 🙂
