What’s happening on Monday the 6th February at 8PM GMT? Kenny Dalglish and Harry Redknapp go head-to-head on Monday as Liverpool take on Tottenham at home. Both teams last 5 result look quite similar and the game looks evenly matched. A good Premiership football betting opportunity.

Both teams score and concede a similar number of goals. I might seem strange that Tottenham go into the game as underdogs even though they are playing well away from home. Using the Soccer Storm football stats software it’s possible to see that Tottenham’s away team ratings dominate Liverpool’s home team rating.  Tottenham have a small away team advantage, but Liverpool have played marginally better over the last 5 games.  Notably Liverpool beat Man United and drew with Man City.   Whereas Tottenham lost to Man City and lost to Man United earlier in the season.

So why do Tottenham look like a good bet?

[unordered_list style=”green-dot”]

  • Rednap didn’t didn’t play Emanuel Adebayor against Man City because is on loan from Man City and used Jermain Defoe in his place.   Defoe only started performing against Man City after they went two goals down which was surprising especially since Tottenham started the game in such an attacking way. Adebayor should be playing Liverpool on Monday which should tilt the tables.
  • Gareth Bale is on top form and has just been awarded Barclays Premiership Player of the month.
  • Liverpool have lost two away games in the last 5 whereas Tottenham have lost only 1.


All this make Tottenham look good value.  How should this opportunity be played?
