thumbnail Hello,

Pete started the season with a bang as both his tips were winners last week and he's got two more picks in mind for this weekend

Well last weekend we started the season well with a nice double and let’s hope we can continue this positive trend this week with a couple of games from the Premier League and La Liga

Here we are following a system bet and you are advised to keep stakes reasonable and always try and obtain the best price available.

This weekend we begin in the Premier League where Andre Villas-Boas leads his Spurs side in their first home game of the season at White Hart Lane against Michael Laudrup’s Swansea City and this could be a tighter match than the current odds imply.

Spurs have a strong home record when facing teams of Swansea’s stature and in their last 12 home matches their record reads won eight, drawn three and lost one and in these matches nine have seen both sides failing to find the back of the net.

When we look at the record of the team from South Wales we can see that when playing sides of Spurs calibre they have a fairly poor record that reads won one, drawn two and lost four and in these seven games only once did both teams find the net.

The “NO” outcome on both teams to score can be backed at 21/20 (2.05) with BetVictor and this looks to offer some good value. If you are feeling a little braver then Spurs can be backed to win to nil at 7/4 (2.75) with Bet365.

Another viable option here could be to back under 2.5 goals and this has been seen in 15 of the above 19 highlighted matches when both sides have played similar opposition. Under 2.5 goals can be backed at 11/10 (2.10) with Paddy Power

Next we move to La Liga where promoted Villarreal take on Valladolid. When both sides have met similar opposition in their last 10 respective home and away matches both teams have scored in only 8 of the 20 matches and in the case of the visitors both teams have not found the net in five of their last seven.

Here the “NO” outcome on Both teams to score can be backed at a standout price of 11/10 (2.10) with Paddy Power and this certainly looks to offer value given the above.

Tottenham v Swansea
Manchester City v Newcastle
Both teams to score "No" at 21/20 (2.05) with BetVictor
