The Premier League is the sole focus of Pete's analysis this week as he looks for more winners by backing "No" in this popular marketWell last weekend our good run came to an end with Manchester United suffering a surprise home defeat to West Bromwich Albion and Inter giving up two points thanks to a late equaliser at Cagliari.
Both games were 0-0 at half-time and as only around 30 per cent of matches see both teams scoring when goalless at the break we were very unfortunate to see both bets go down. Hopefully we’ll get back on track this weekend.
Here we are following a system bet and you are advised to keep stakes reasonable and always try to obtain the best price available.
This weekend both our selections come from the Premier League and we begin with Sunday’s London derby between high-flying Tottenham and Sam Allardyce's West Ham.
Andre Villas-Boas' side have a very strong record when facing teams of West Ham’s stature that reads won seven, drawn one and lost two. In these 10 matches only two saw both teams finding the net.
In the case of West Ham the stats are just as strong as seven of the Hammers' 10 away games to teams of Spurs' grading have seen none or only one team finding the net. Indeed, if we look at the Hammers general away form, both teams have scored in only three of their last 10 away games.
Here the "No" selection on the both teams to score market can be backed at 5/6 (1.83) with bet365 and this looks to offer good value.
There are some strong trends in this match with Spurs winning six of their seven victories to nil and West Ham losing four of their above five defeats to nil.
As a result, there certainly looks some value in backing the north London side to win to nil at an appealing 13/10 (2.30) with bet365 for those searching for bigger returns.
In our second match second-placed Liverpool face newly-promoted Crystal Palace in what looks like a routine victory for Brendan Rodgers' side.
When facing the bottom six sides both teams have scored in only one of Liverpool's last 10 at Anfield and here the "No" outcome on both teams to score can be backed at 4/6 (1.67) with BetVictor.
