Featured Game 

Saturday 21st January 

Manchester City (+110) vs. Tottenham Hotspur (+240) 12.30pm 

The pick of the weekend sees in-form Tottenham Hotspur travel to face a beleaguered City side who are going through their worst spell yet under Pep Guardiola. This game has huge recent history behind it, with the away side winning the most recent face-off in Manchester:

It's a familiar result for Spurs and City fans, with this crucial victory being labelled 'the Top Four Final' as Peter Crouch's goal sending Tottenham Hotspur into the Champions League at the expense of City just a few years ago. 

It's not all gone the way of the London side, however. Manchester City dished out an absolute battering in the fixture a few years ago, hitting Spurs for six:  

When it comes to Saturday's fixture, City are favorites despite their recent calamitous defeat at Goodison Park. Spurs are dangerous, and while they are a good straight bet at +240, we prefer the +160 on offer that they are able to score two goals in 90 minutes against a team who have looked shaky at the back all year and simply have to attack. 

Spurs Ou1.5

 

 

O/U first Half  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another very interesting bet is the odds on there being more than 1.5 goals in the first half (Above, also via Bovada). Both teams attack early and this is an outstanding bet. 

Other Games

Saturday 21st January 

Liverpool (-450) vs. Swansea City (+1100) 7.30am 

Liverpool may have dropped two points against Manchester United, but have maintained their status as favorites to reach the top four at the end of the season ahead of their bitter enemies. They'll have no trouble seeing off Swansea, and are a good value to win after being level at half-time.

Stoke City (+450) vs. Manchester United (-165) 10am ET 

Just a week after a tough test against Liverpool, United face that most clichéd of fixtures - away at Stoke City. Far from the bruisers they used, to be, Stoke now play attractive football and drew at Old Trafford earlier in the season. Take both sides to score at -110 or Stoke to score first in a tie at +850. 

Crystal Palace (+220) vs. Everton (+130) 10am ET 

Everton are +400 to win the game with both sides scoring, a gift in their current form at both ends. 

West Bromwich Albion (-150) vs. Sunderland (+425) 10am ET 

Over 2.5 goals is practically buying money. It's +105.

Bournemouth (-125) Watford (+360) 10am ET

The Cherries are +700 to win 2-1 and that is a common score in this type of game. It could be a very entertaining game. 

Middlesborough (+140) vs. West Ham United (+210) 10am ET 

The away side could well go on a run now they are scoring freely again and at +210 represent value. 

Sunday 22nd January

Southampton (-120) vs. Leicester City (+360) 7am ET 

The draw in both halves is +330, but if you're feeling daring, then the +1800 on offer for the game to finish 2-2 could pay for your weekend's entire spread. 

Arsenal (-500) vs. Burnley (+1200) 9.15am ET 

Arsenal usually thrash teams in this circumstance, but Burnley haven't been battered too often this season. They're -115 to win with a -2 handicap and even if they are valiantly beaten by a late deflected goal (it's going to happen) you'll be paid. 

Chelsea (-550) vs. Hull City (+1400) 11.30 ET

This game has a 'plucky defeat' all over it. Take Chelsea to win 3-1 at +1000.

The Oscars: Nomadland The Pick Of The Flicks

Making Oscars 2021 picks isn't like wagering on a sporting event. While certainly there is the so-called Oscar buzz that's generated around certain films, the decision on which movie, director or actor gains the Academy Award is solely based on a secret ballot held by the members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. There are no past performances to assess, so going with an underdog isn't necessarily a bad strategy.
