Premier League Betting Preview – Thursday Night’s Matches
A Premier League double with both North London clubs in action.
First up Tottenham go to Brighton, whose matches have eased off in terms of goals and BTTS but they’re up against a Spurs side who just can’t help getting involved in games with goals aplenty.
Ange’s men love scoring on the road but the defeat at Wolves and that draw at City (great that it was) have dented what is still one of the best away records in the country. Brighton on the other hand look like a side gasping for a breather after a hectic first half of the campaign. They’re 3 without a win, although they’ve only lost once at home this season.
I think the goals will flow here with both to score and over 2.5 goals very skinny at 4/6 I’m going to have to suggest that Postecoglou’s side will take the points, and while Spurs and BTTS is 3/1, I’m going for the Spurs and over 2.5 goals just in case that Brighton forward line stutters as they did at Arsenal.
Later in the evening Arsenal kick off against West Ham. Now I think David Moyes is currently having one of his greatest season in management. The Hammers are through in the Europa League and they’re going very well in the league but it still doesn’t mean he’s going to win at Arsenal, City, United, Liverpool or Chelsea – although that list used to include Spurs until the start of this month. Moyes picks and chooses his games. He’s quoted as saying, “I wish I could promise that we'll go and beat one of the top teams away, but I would rather be consistent through the Premier League.” So does he go all guns blazing here at Arsenal or give Brighton both barrels at home on Tuesday? Saying that, it’s a long time between now and Tuesday so maybe the hammers are worth a go here. Let’s give them a goal. They’ve lost their last 8 at Arsenal. It’ll be a 9th but let’s say Arsenal and both teams to score at 19/10.
That’s a North London double of 9/1
