Sportingbet, our official betting partners, give us the rundown on some of the markets on offer for tonight’s Europa League Play-Off first leg at Hearts…
It’s odd that Spurs kick off their season with a European tie but that’s the situation facing Harry Redknapp’s men tonight.
Instrumental midfield-man Rafael Van der Vaart should be fit to take his place in the eleven as Spurs arrive in the Scottish capital as 3/5 favourites to take a first leg lead.
Hearts have endured a topsy-turvy start to the season with boss Jim Jefferies being handed his marching orders just two games into the SPL season. With Paulo Sergio now in the hotseat, the hosts are a rather large 4/1 to topple Tottenham at Tynecastle. The draw is 13/5 with Sportingbet.
Spurs have scored 11 goals in their last six European matches and may be good things again to hit the target. You can pick up 8/11 for the visitors to score before the half-time interval and their an odds-against poke at 6/5 to be leading at the break.
The Over 2.5 goals market over the 90 minutes is a generous 17/20 shout and with both teams still to settle into their patterns for the season, it could be well worth a look, while Correct Score hunters can take advantage of the 12/1 price on a 3-1 Tottenham win in Edinburgh.
Those who fancy a nibble at a First Goalscorer can see Van der Vaart chalked up at 5/1 to break the deadlock. Jermain Defoe is available at the same price.
If you haven’t already, we’d urge you take a look at the Sportingbet Spurs Zone for a selection of fantastic, money-can’t-buy prizes as we aim to bring you even closer to the club we love. At the moment, we’re giving away Captain’s Club hospitality to see Spurs take on Liverpool on September 18!
