Spurs look to bounce back, lump on Ronaldo and Lewandowski double
Tottenham's failure to find the net against Arsenal cost the column dearly at the weekend but we are hoping Spurs can redeem themselves by claiming a draw against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League this week.
Running total: -£84.13
The Home Banker
Napoli are two points clear at the top of Serie A but have endured a fairly torrid Champions League campaign and know anything less than victory at home to Shakhtar Donetsk will see them eliminated from this season's competition. Shakhtar turned over an uncharacteristically cautious Napoli side at home on match day one to blow Group F wide open. However we do not see lightning striking twice and fancy Napoli to cover a one goal handicap against the champions of Ukraine on Tuesday.
The Tasty Treble
Bayern Munich (3/10) look bankers to beat an Anderlecht side that have shipped 15 goals in just four Champions League games so far, while Sporting Lisbon (8/15) can be trusted to see off poor travellers Olympiakos at home. Elsewhere, the draw looks a tempting price at 13/5 when Liverpool travel to Sevilla. The Reds are unbeaten in Group E and have played themselves into a bit of form ahead of this crunch trip to Spain. The treble is paying better than 6/1 and definitely worth a play.
The Euro Wager
Spurs suffered a demoralising 2-0 defeat in the north London derby at the weekend but will fancy their chances of claiming a positive result against a woefully out of form Borussia Dortmund. The German giants have not won a game since Sept. 30 and are on the brink of elimination in Group H. The draw in Germany is a 13/5 shout and looks the way to bet as Mauricio Pochettino's men look to nail down top spot in the group.
The Wildcard Tip
Pep Guardiola has promised to make sweeping changes to his Manchester City side as they host Feyenoord on Tuesday. Speaking after Saturday's 2-0 win at Leicester he said: "Against Feyenoord I will change the team completely," and with City having already qualified from Group F it might be worth laying down some money on the draw here at 11/1. The Dutch side, who admittedly have struggled domestically this season, travel more in hope than expectation but could prove stubborn opponents at the Etihad.
The Bookie Basher
Cristiano Ronaldo's La Liga form may be a worry but he's already bagged six goals in just four Champions League games this season and he looks the sensible play to score first against APOEL Nicosia. So too Robert Lewandowski. The Polish goal machine has already scored 22 in all competitions this season and the Ronaldo/Lewandowski first goal-scorer double is an 8/1 chance with bet365 this week.
