Back Tottenham to beat Manchester United and both teams to score
The column turned another profit in midweek largely thanks to wins for Leicester City and Lazio, and we feel Spurs' odds are too big this weekend as they travel to Manchester United.

The Wildcard Tip
If you ignore Tottenham's bizarre second half implosion against West Ham in the Carabao Cup in midweek, their recent form has been rock solid. A 1-1 draw against Real Madrid was followed up by a 4-1 pasting of Liverpool, and they look a big price to beat a Manchester United side who are clearly missing the influence of Paul Pogba in midfield. After a stunning start to the campaign, the Red Devils suddenly look every bit as pedestrian as they did for large chunks of last season and Spurs -- who have won nine of their last 10 away games in the top flight -- are worth a go here to inflict more misery on Jose Mourinho.
Selection: £2 on Tottenham to win and both teams to score at 11/2 with bet365.
The Home Banker
Watford sit proudly in sixth position in the Premier League and truth be told were unlucky not to get something at Chelsea last Saturday. Marco Silva has got them playing a sparkling brand of attacking football and they should have too much quality for a Stoke side who traditionally tend to struggle on the road. Indeed Mark Hughes' team have won just one of their last 12 league games away from home. In contrast, Watford have only lost once at Vicarage Road and saw off Arsenal 2-1 at home last time out.
Selection: £5 on Watford to win at evens with bet365.
The Tasty Treble
Leicester City looked excellent during the short reign of interim boss Michael Appleton, and new boss Claude Puel will be hoping they can continue their resurgent form against Everton on Sunday. The Toffees have lost four of their last five and confidence looks close to rock bottom at Goodison, so the 11/10 about a Foxes win needs snapping up. Elsewhere, Arsenal (1/5) and Manchester City (1/4) should encounter few problems against Swansea and West Brom respectively.
Selection: £3 on treble at 2.15/1 with bet365.
The Euro Wager
AC Milan host Juventus this weekend and it could be worth backing Juve to claim a priceless win at the San Siro. The Old Lady have scored 12 goals in their last three outings and will be boosted by news that Leonardo Bonucci misses the clash through suspension after being shown the first-ever VAR red card in Serie A.
Selection: £2 on Juventus to win and over 2.5 goals at 21/10 with bet365.
The Bookie Basher
Philippe Coutinho remains Liverpool's most potent attacking force and he can show his class by bagging two goals or more against Huddersfield. The Terriers were the scourge of odds-on backers up and down the land last weekend as they stunned Manchester United but they've failed to score in five of their last seven and could be put to the sword by Liverpool, whose record at Anfield has been excellent so far.
Selection: £1 on Coutinho to score 2+ goals at 13/2 with bet365.
