Mike's Football Bets 8th November

A full midweek fixture list in the Premier League and my best value bet is over at White Hart Lane where Spurs take on Sunderland on Tuesday night. Two teams with totally contrasting form at home and on the road, with Redknapp’s charges winning 9 out of 13 games against ‘bottom 12’ opposition since the 09/10 season. Sunderland are woeful away from home losing 15 out of 23 games and I’m taking the 1.83 on Spurs to overcome a -0.75 Asian Handicap with Bet365.

Over at Molineux I am also backing Spurs’ North London rivals Arsenal to overcome a -1 Asian Handicap at 2.14 with 188bet. I don’t seem to be able to call Arsene Wengers team right recently but the odds on them winning by at least a goal look value against a Wolves team on a very difficult run of form. If Arshavin & Van Persie play, along with Fabregas & Walcott I think we could see goals here against a Wolves team who maybe a bit flat after recent losses.

I also foresee plenty of action up at St James Park where Blackburn travel to an in-form Newcastle side who look to have plenty of goals in them. Blackburn’s games see over 2.5 goals away from home around 55% of the time and with Newcastle hitting their straps recently, the 2.04 on overs with SBObet equates to a 49% chance. Not huge value but worth a small bet.

Finally my last main bet is on Stoke to overcome a -0.25 Asian Handicap at 1.85 with Pinnacle against a Birmingham side who are poor travellers. At home they have won 8 and drawn 4 out of the last 14 games against bottom 12 teams and Tony Pulis will have them targeting 3 points here. They have been unlucky with lots of referee decisions lately and this looks too big a price for what will be a tough game for Birmingham.
