Rafa to work his magic at 22/1, say @Sportingbet_com
Rafa Van der Vaart continued his scoring streak on Wednesday and will be the man to watch at Villa Park on Sunday according to our Official Betting Partner.
The Dutch star was inspirational in last year’s 2-1 away victory over Aston Villa as he grabbed a brace in a classy win and Sportingbet have priced up a range of specials on him with Spurs 10/11 to win the game.
Punters can back the forward at 3/1 to score from inside the box, 10/1 to score a header and 12/1 to score from outside the box. He can also be backed to score in the first half at 5/1, the second at 15/4 and a repeat of last year’s effort where he scored in both halves is a very tasty 22/1.
Those who fancy £10 on the Dutchman scoring first in another 2-1 win will make a profit of £500 thanks to the 50/1 odds.
Gareth Bale was also on top form on Wednesday night and is 7/2 to score more goals than Villa’s Emile Heskey in a special head-to-head goal matchbet, while Emmanuel Adebayor can be backed at 5/2 to score more than Gabby Agbonlahor.
The Togolese is the 5/1 favourite to open the scoring with Bale 7/1, van der Vaart 6/1 and former Villa loanee and Young Player of the Year Kyle Walker worth a few quid at 28/1!
You can also back the number of Spurs players to find the net this weekend with 1 player 15/8, two players 11/5 and 3 or more available at 7/2.
Having led at half time and full time in the two previous games against Villa – as well as in the last two league games against Blackburn and Bolton -the same market is there for the taking at 4/1, while Spurs to win both halves on Sunday is 17/10.
