Portsmouth v Tottenham Hotspur betting tip – So Harry is back at his old club Pompey, he’ll be hoping that the visit to Fratton Park will go ‘triffic’. Alot of ex-players will be turning out to play for both sides, Defoe, Crouch, Kaboul and Prince Boateng to name a few. Back Defoe and Kaboul to score at anytime against their old teams, you can get odds of 2.38 (11/8) and 9.2 (8/1).
Portsmouth v Man City- This Premiership fixture brought a 6-0 win for Man City when the two teams last played in September. Pompey haven’t won in four games and City have only have one win in six games. City have a poor record at Fratton park, last winning 3-1 in 2004.
Betting tip- I’m going to tip and back ‘Over 2.5 goals‘ in this match, you can get odds of around 2.06 on Betfair.
After the international friendlies mid-week it’s back to the Premiership. Portsmouth vs. Man Utd looks to be an interesting match, United are under strength in their second game so another draw may be on the cards. Arsenal take on Fulham, surely another 3 points for the Gunners and another step closer for us to winning our ‘Top at the end of month- August’ bet? If only betting was that easy!!
Betting tip- Liverpool v Middlesbrough, Torres has picked up where left off last season and has already opened his goal scoring account. Back him to score at anytime (odds of 2.04 on Betfair) and to be first goal scorer (odds of 4.6). Hopefully Benitez won’t be in his rotating moods and he’ll let the Spanish hitman start the game.
Tottenham v Sunderland- It’s always interesting to see an ex player come up against his old club, Steed Malbranque was one of the better Tottenham players last year, and he’ll line up against them for Sunderland. As a fun bet, back him to score at anytime tomorrow, odds of 6.50 on William Hill. Chimbonda will be another player to look out for.
UPDATE: Not a very good start the season at all for us on the betting front, I’m feeling a bit like Paul Jewell’s Derby who haven’t won in the league since September 2007, hopefully we won’t need to wait that long for a winner!! Malbranque nearly scored against his old club and the fun bet nearly came off, only the cross bar got in the way. Torres couldn’t win our main bet of the day either, making it a miserable a weekend of betting.
