Sportingbet, our official betting partner, give us the rundown on some of the markets on offer ahead of our Europa League clash with PAOK tonight...
Tottenham Hotspur are in Greece tonight for a Europa League clash with PAOK, and with Harry Redknapp expected to tinker, the betting is nigh on a dead heat.
Spurs look set to go off narrow underdogs at 8/5, with their Greek hosts chalked up at 6/4 owing to a strong home record. Villarreal numbered among their victims in Europe last season, so there will be no shame in grinding out the 43/20 draw.
The Sportingbet book appears to predict a low-scoring affair, with 13/20 for Under 2.5 Goals and 11/10 for the Overs, but squad members looking to seize their chance could yet make an impression in the goalscorer market.
Roman Pavlyuchenko could be among that number and is 6/1 to score first and 2/1 to score at any time, while any one of Giovani (13/5 any time), Jake Livermore (8/1 any time) or Andros Townsend (16/1 first goal) might yet look like value before the night is out.
Elsewhere in the Europa League, Stoke are 7/2 outsiders at in-form Dynamo Kiev (7/10), Fulham are6/5 to see off FC Twente (21/10) at Craven Cottage and Birmingham (33/20) are underdogs on their own turf, as Portuguese side Braga (27/20) make the trip to St. Andrews.
Celtic’s European reprieve has earned them a tough trip to Atletico Madrid, with the Spaniards deemed 4/11 favourites to heap more pain on the green half of Glasgow. It would be some shock if Neil Lennon’s side were to come away with a win, but you can back them at 13/2.
Odds correct at time of writing.
