Liverpool vs Tottenham 2019 English Premier League Odds & Prediction

Written by on October 25, 2019

There is always something special about winning a major trophy like the FA Cup or the Champions League, but the true mark of a team comes in how they perform in their domestic leagues. Managers are judged on the silverware that they win, but they will all tell you that winning the league is the ultimate goal, as doing so means that you were consistently the best team over a long period of time. A cup run requires a little bit of the luck of the draw, but a league championship requires a strong squad all focused on winning every single week.

Liverpool put together the second best season of all time in the Premier League last year, but the bad news for them was that it came in the same season when Manchester City had the best ever year, eventually pipping the Reds by a single point. Liverpool seem bound and determined to go one better this season, as they are off to a fabulous start that has them sitting at the top of the table in the early going. They will have a tough one ahead of them this weekend, though, with Tottenham coming to town on Sunday. Liverpool are a 1-goal favorite at home, with the goal total set at 3.

Liverpool vs Tottenham 2019 English Premier League Odds & Prediction

Why bet on Liverpool?

Liverpool have come out in the early part of the season and set the bar at an incredibly high level. They won their opening 8 games of the season before finally losing their 100% record at Old Trafford last weekend. They did manage to salvage a point against Manchester United courtesy of a late Adam Lallana goal, helping them to a 6-point lead at the top.

The Reds have zero time to rest ahead of this one, playing in the Champions League earlier this week and running out 4-1 winners on the road at Genk. It will be good to get back home, especially considering how good they have been in their own building. They are a perfect 4-0, scoring 12 goals and surrendering just 4.

Why bet on Tottenham?

Over the past few seasons, we have been talking about Tottenham and their promising squad, with the feeling being that they were destined to start winning trophies. While they have come close a few times, most recently losing to Liverpool in last season’s Champions League Final, silverware has remained elusive.

Liverpool vs Tottenham is going to be a good one.

The talk now is that this team has peaked and beginning to hit a downward trend, which has promoted some to suggest that it might be time to sell off some talent and rebuild. Their early season form certainly suggests that they are not what they were, going 3-3-3 for 12 points and 7th place in the league. They have yet to win on the road this season and have managed just 2 points away from home, which is not great news when heading out to face the league leaders.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction for Liverpool vs Tottenham

Even though they dropped points last week, Liverpool were still a little unlucky not to win against Manchester United. I think they maintain their strong home form this Sunday with a comfortable win over Spurs.

Score: Liverpool 3 – Tottenham 1
