Also, Not just on these two games, TopbetsSA picks the top five betting fixtures you can place your money on, plus extra tips for our readers.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Liverpool
Tottenham and Liverpool, both undefeated this season, face off in the upcoming Premier League match. The home team had a 2-2 draw against Arsenal, whereas Liverpool won seven games in a row after their season opener draw with Chelsea. Historically, Liverpool has had the upper hand with nine wins in their last 12 encounters. Although Liverpool is the favored team, Tottenham’s current form suggests a high-scoring game. Both teams have been scoring well this season, with Tottenham averaging 2.3 goals per game and Liverpool 2.6. Given their offensive strengths and defensive vulnerabilities, a game total of over 3.5 goals is anticipated. A 2-2 draw seems plausible considering both teams’ recent performance. Tottenham’s Son Heung-min, who scored twice against Arsenal, is a player to watch, having made significant contributions in past matches against Liverpool.
Tottenham averages 2.3 goals per game, while Liverpool boasts a slightly higher average of 2.6. Both teams have struggled defensively, with Spurs securing only two clean sheets out of seven games, and Liverpool achieving just one in eight matches across all competitions. Given that half of the league games involving these teams have seen at least four goals, betting on over 3.5 goals seems a wise choice.
Tip: Over 3.5 Goals ❌
AC Milan vs Lazio
After a surprising 5-1 loss to Inter, Milan has rebounded with consecutive Serie A wins and has a chance to top the table with a victory against Lazio. They’ve recently showcased strength at San Siro, winning their last five home league games and remaining undefeated in 11 Serie A home matches. Olivier Giroud has been notable, scoring seven goals in the last ten league games at San Siro. Milan previously beat Lazio 2-0 in May, marking their fourth consecutive home victory against them.
On the other hand, Lazio, after a shaky start this season, recently secured a win against Torino, positioning them closer to the top-10. Despite their strong performance last season, Lazio’s current form is inconsistent, particularly during away games. However, they’ve scored in each of their last three away matches, suggesting the upcoming match against Milan could have over 2.5 goals, as seen in seven of their past ten encounters.
After a significant setback in the Milan derby, Milan is on a positive trajectory and aims to secure the Serie A top position with a third consecutive league win. The Rossoneri have consistently performed well against Lazio at San Siro and are poised to achieve their fifth consecutive victory over the Aquile on their home ground.
