Liverpool v Tottenham Betting Preview

Liverpool v Tottenham – Round 29
When: 5:00pm GMT. 11 March 2013
Where: Anfield in Liverpool, England

Liverpool is 7th on the table (42 pts) and well back from qualifying for the Champions League next year. Liverpool would need to go on a massive run and get some help to finish in the T5 this year and they’ll need to start against 3rd place Tottenham (54 pts). Let’s preview this match and take a look at the latest Liverpool v Tottenham betting odds.

Liverpool v Tottenham Match Odds

I’m a bit surprised by the 1X2 match odds in Liverpool v Tottenham. Liverpool is favoured at Anfield, which I figured they would be, but I didn’t expect them to be paying under evens in the 1X2 market.

Tottenham v Liverpool Match Preview: 11 March

Both teams come into this match running on lots of confidence. Liverpool has won their L2 matches by the scores of 5-0 against Swansea City and 4-0 against Wigan Athletic, but they run into a Tottenham squad that are winners of their L4 league matches.

The main reason the Hotspurs are 3rd on the table is because of a strong backline and Gareth Bale. The heavy footed midfielder leads the team with 16 goals, but the squad has also had contributions from striker Jermain Defoe (10 Goals) among others.

The offence for the Hotspurs is better in away matches than at White Hart Lane. Tottenham averages 1.93 GPG in away matches, which is much higher than the league average of just 1.24 GPG. Bale and Defoe have 17 of the team’s 27 away goals this term.

While the offence has been great away from home, the backline has struggled a bit. Tottenham concedes 1.36 GPG on average in away matches compared to 1.00 GPG at home. However, the 1.36 GPG is still better than the league average of 1.61 GPG.

Liverpool is usually a very strong team at Anfield, but this year they’re just 7-3-4 at home. Liverpool still plays well at Anfield, but winning just 50% of your home matches isn’t good enough if you want to compete for a T5 spot on the league table.

At Anfield Liverpool averages 1.93 GPG and concedes just 0.86 GPG. Both of those stats are better than the league average and better than Liverpool’s season averages. One problem with Liverpool though is they show signs of having a split personality.

One week they’ll show up to play and win 5-0 and then another week they’ll lose 3-0 against a bottom half team. Luis Suarez has led the team this year finally and he has tallied 21 goals. However, over half of his goals (11) have come away from Anfield.

My Favourite Wagers & Betting Predictions

Tottenham is priced too high to pass on them against Liverpool despite being away. Tottenham won earlier this season against Liverpool at home (2-1) in a match that they dominated from start to finish. Lennon and Bale both tallied goals in that match.

Against teams in the T5 spots on the table (Man Utd, Man City, Tottenham, Chelsea & Arsenal) Liverpool is 0-4-4. They haven’t picked up a victory in any of those matches. If Tottenham shuts down Suarez they should end up winning the match.

Liverpool has a great backline that concedes less than a goal per game at Anfield, but Tottenham is 2nd in the league in goals scored in away matches behind only Manchester United. I like Bale to score and win this match for the Hotspurs.

We like supplying our favourite banker bet for accumulators in our weekly Premier League previews. I really expect both teams to score in this match. Tottenham averages nearly 2 GPG away from home and Liverpool scores nearly 2 GPG at Anfield.

It’s hard not to bet Bale to score 1st against Liverpool for his team. Bale has scored the 1st goal for his team six times this season including the L5 matches. Bale has been the hottest player in the Premier League with 7 goals in his L5 matches.

If you want a longshot bet for this match I like Bale to score 1st and Tottenham to win 2-1 in the scorecast market. Bale has been lighting it up and Tottenham won the last match 2-1, which I think is a likely score again despite this match being at Anfield.
