But on any given day a host of variables can lead to an upset!
So that’s why the team at Betin Kenya are picking 4 games where you can back the underdog this weekend. If you really fancy a long shot bet, beta small stake on all these underdogs to come through with the code RMCNS .
Manchester Utd vs Tottenham (2 – 3.20)
The first game of this Premier League weekend is also the most anticipated one. Tottenham and Man Utd lie level on points and a win for either side would mark them out as Man City’s main title challengers. Although a win at Old Trafford seems to be a bold prediction, Spurs have shown real quality in their big games this season, and are in better form than the Red Devils, who are coming off the back of a disappointing loss to Huddersfield, a team Tottenham dismantled. It’s a brave call but with Kane in the form of his life, backing Spurs could be a great bet.
Liverpool vs Huddersfield (X2 – 3.90)
An away trip to Anfield is usually perceived as one of the toughest games in the Premier League, but given Liverpool’s calamitous defence Huddersfield will be going into this game with confidence, especially after their most recent win against a defensively strong Man Utd. Respective managers Wagner and Klopp know each other personally, having coached together at Dortmund, and the shrewd Huddersfield tactician will have a specific gameplan to shut down the Reds. Huddersfield won’t see much of the ball, but they will be prepared for that and are good value to draw or win, especially if they get the first goal.
Dijon vs Nantes (2 – 2.94)
The Claudio Ranieri effect seems to be kicking in at Nantes as they lie 3rd behind PSG and Monaco in Ligue 1. While another ‘Leicester-esque’ league title is a fanciful thought, they are showing all the hallmarks of a team that can be the best of the rest in France. Away to Dijon is a tough game, but by playing with such togetherness and defensive resoluteness in recent weeks, they are well equipped to win here.
Arsenal vs Swansea (X2 – 4.10)
Given Arsenal’s demolition of Everton last week, and with the attacking trident of Lacazette, Sanchez and Ozil starting to form an understanding, backing Swansea to get a draw or win seems an odd prediction. However their manager Paul Clements is a very astute tactician, and after holding the free scoring Tottenham to an excellent 0-0 draw at Wembley in September, he will have a similar defensive set-up planned for this trip to the Emirates. Arsenal can often struggle with packed defences, and while they will need some luck, the Swans could get a result here.
