Sportingbet, our official betting partners, give us the rundown on some of the markets on offer ahead of Sunday’s Premier League trip to Wolves…
Tottenham Hotspur have endured a long wait to put defeat at Blackpool right, but after two weekends off, Harry Redknapp’s men will need to hit the ground running to justify their 6/5 odds for the trip to Wolves.
With four wins from their last six home games – and the scalps of Chelsea, Man City and Man United at Molineux this season – Tottenham cannot afford to take the Black Country outfit lightly.
Wolves are 2/1 shots in the Sportingbet book and the draw is chalked up at 11/5, but pre-Blackpool, Spurs had developed a knack for winning tough away trips – and the top four pursuit surely demands victory.
Spurs fans looking to back their team at Sportingbet missed out on Red Card Refunds last weekend but the promotion returns for another bite of value this Sunday.
Simply place your usual bet on the First Goalscorer, Anytime Goalscorer, Correct Score or Scorecast markets and if a player is sent off, losing punts will get another chance as a free bet of up to £25.
With that offer in mind, the Correct Score market offers 6/1 for a 1-0 away victory in the Blackburn mould, a 2-1 result ala Sunderland is 8/1 while even the 2-2 draw pays good money at 14/1.
Among the goalscorers, the manager will be hoping to call on Rafael Van der Vaart (7/5 any time), but Peter Crouch (9/5 any time), Roman Pavlyuchenko (2/1 any time) or Aaron Lennon (19/5 any time) could yet fill the scoring boots.
If you’d rather bet risk-free, how about tipping up your best of the weekend and being in with the chance to win a £100 Free Bet? The Sportingbet Podcast has launched its brand new competition, Five for a Ton, challenging you to prove yourself a top tipster by nailing five winners in a row.
