England’s chances of winning the World Cup go from minimal to zero if there is no Harry Kane. The big question of the day is can Tottenham cope with the absence of their best player and talisman against Manchester United at Old Trafford today. With Kane up front Spurs were fancied to win this fixture but the balance now shifts to the home team which means MANCHESTER UNITED must be backed at 23/20 with Betfair.
Chelsea are odds-on to beat Bournemouth in the second live match of the day and there is no value at backing them at price. There is an old adage that you should never back a team on the road at less than even money. This should not be a hard and fast rule but on balance Chelsea are a lay and not back bet at odds-on at Bournemouth. There seems to be some trouble in the camp and all is not well in the world of the manager who could be on his way very soon.
There are five kick-offs in the Premier League at the traditional time of 3pm on Saturday afternoon. More fixtures are being rearranged for the purposes of television but he who pays the piper calls the tune…which basically means if Sky or BT want a match to start at a time that suits them that is when it starts. The appetite for live football seems unlimited and one of the driving forces is betting. Today’s Premier League banker treble is Arsenal (v Swansea), Liverpool (v Huddersfield) and Man City (v West Brom) at over Evens with bet365.
Glasgow Rangers have just sacked their manager and they are away at Hearts today. They have not won this fixture in five years but one of the quirks of form can see them win this match on the road. Hearts are a young side and even RANGERS with no permanent manager can make experience pay so they are good things at Evens with Coral to pick up all three points in Edinburgh. You can add Rangers to the Premier League treble to double your money.
