Liverpool-Tottenham Hotspur Betting Preview: Bale can inspire visitors to vital victory

Andre Villas-Boas’ men enjoyed a victory over north London rivals last weekend before beating Inter in midweek and Willie Duncan is tipping up another Spurs success this weekend

The FA Cup may be in the spotlight this weekend but in-form Tottenham Hotspur make the journey to Merseyside to take on Liverpool in what promises to be a pulsating Premier League clash at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.

Andre Villas-Boas’ men are unbeaten in their last 12 Premier League matches and can be backed at a juicy 3/1 (4.0) with BetVictor to follow up on Thursday night’s impressive 3-0 Europa League victory over Inter at White Hart Lane by beating Brendan Rodgers’ side this weekend.

The Reds have scored an impressive 12 goals in their last three matches in all competitions and should the hosts maintain their scoring touch here, they would surely represent good value at 37/40 (1.93) with BetVictor to claim all three points against Spurs. The same firm offer 29/10 (3.90) that the match ends in a draw.

If Liverpool are to get the better of Andre Villas-Boas’ men, though, then they must find a way to stop Gareth Bale.

The Wales winger is in blistering form, having scored 10 goals in his last eight matches for the Lilywhites and is sure to attract plenty of support from punters at a generous 11/2 (6.50) with BetVictor to bag the opening goal of Sunday’s encounter while the same firm offer a hugely appealing 6/4 (2.50) quote that the in-form Spurs star scores at any time.

Liverpool, though, have a prolific goalscorer of their own; Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez.

The 26-year-old striker has scored nine goals in his last nine matches for the Reds, including a hat-trick against Wigan Athletic last weekend, and the talismanic forward can be backed at 17/4 (5.25) with BetVictor to score first while the same firm go 11/10 (2.10) that Suarez scores at any time in the match.

It is worth noting that Spurs are unbeaten in their last five competitive meetings with Liverpool and, therefore, the 3/1 (4.0) quote from BetVictor for Andre Villas-Boas’ men appears to represent outstanding value here while punters are advised to snap up the 6/4 (2.50) quote from the same firm for the irrepressible Gareth Bale to score at any time on Sunday.
