Bet365 offer 13/10 odds on Liverpool to beat Tottenham 2018-09-1513th September 2018 / lee
The big clash in this next round of the Premier League is the one that starts off the weekend. It is Tottenham v Liverpool from Wembley as Tottenham’s new home has had some pretty big delays which may not even see them move in this year. The Lilywhites had a decent time at Wembley last season but after a loss against Watford just before the international break, they are going to be under big pressure against Liverpool on Saturday lunchtime.
Tottenham v Liverpool odds*

Liverpool need a big performance out on the road on the weekend and given what they have produced so far this term, they look good value to get a result. Liverpool opened the season in tremendous fashion, powering their way past West Ham, but their performances since have been less about flair and a lot more about character. They haven’t produced those big fluent attacking shows but they have dug out wins over Crystal Palace, Brighton, and Leicester recently, neither of them particularly convincing wins.
But that is a good sign, that they are showing this season they are capable of winning ugly. That was missing from them last season. After four straight wins to open the season with, another one here would move the Reds six points clear of a title rival. That would be a pretty big statement so early in the season. In the bet365 correct score market a Liverpool 2-1 option is at 9/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.). That has some appeal and while we like the odds on Liverpool to beat Tottenham, we can see both teams scoring.
Mane the main man
Even though most of the attention falls on Mo Salah when it comes to Liverpool and their goalscoring exploits, Sadio Mane has had a really strong start to the new term and he can be backed at 15/8 in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken from September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.). He has four goals in four games for the Reds in the Premier League this season.
Liverpool have gone unbeaten in 11 of their last 12 games against Spurs in all competitions, so they hold a strong record. They capitulated at Wembley against Spurs last season, suffering a 4-1 loss there however that sparked them into a whole new defensive mode. Since that loss, they have conceded fewer top-flight goals than any other team. They have shipped just the one goal in their four Premier League games this season.
So they are going well at the back and they will have seen how poorly Spurs played in their defeat against Watford just before the international break. There should be weaknesses there for the Reds to exploit. Liverpool are on a five-match winning streak in the Premier League and they have also been winning at half time and at full time in each of those five games. Throw that on top of their good recent head to head form against Tottenham and they look a solid option.
The odds on Liverpool to beat Tottenham are at 13/10 odds with bet365* (Betting Odds were taken from September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.) appeal. This will be their biggest game of the season so far, their toughest test. But just the fact that they have shown that they can win ugly this season will go a long way. It looks like a really tough call to make on this one, but of the two, Liverpool look the more assured of themselves. Spurs have only one clean sheet to their name this season.
We feel that there is enough there for Liverpool to have success in this one. Tottenham were poor against Watford in their loss and that shows that if their Plan A isn’t working, they don’t have a back up plan at all and they look flimsy. Liverpool look much stronger at the back this season and they can come up with the edge. We are backing the odds on Liverpool to beat Tottenham.
