Andrew Hughes thinks Tottenham will prove too strong for Crystal Palace on Saturday and will help to land another weekend multiple in the process.
“With Harry Kane back on form and the creative pairing of Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli back in the fold, Spurs look a good bet.”
Crystal Palace didn’t play too badly in the first half against Chelsea last weekend, but they crumbled eventually, and even though they get to play their next London rival at Selhurst Park, I think the outcome will be the same on Saturday, against a side they haven’t beaten in their last six meetings.
Goals are the problem for Palace, as Andy Schooler outlines in his Match Preview, and with Wilfried Zaha out of form, those problems are likely to continue.
Tottenham have come in for some criticism this season, but statistically, their start to the season has been solid, and Mauricio Pochettino has proven adept at getting the most out of his squad. With Harry Kane back on form and the creative pairing of Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli back in the fold, Spurs look a good bet.
The Autumn Internationals have already delivered plenty of drama and great punting opportunities and there should be more to come this .
South Africa lost out narrowly to England at Twickenham last time, but they should fare better in Paris. France are improving under Jacques Brunel, but the Springboks transition process is much further advanced, as demonstrated by their victory over the All Blacks in Wellington earlier this autumn.
Rassie Erasmus will also be able to call on a string of experienced internationals who were missing last week, and with the likes of Faf de Klerk and Francois Louw back in the line-up, they should be able to edge out the French, against whom they have an excellent record, including 13 wins in 19 games on French soil.
Salt Lake is often a tricky venue to play at, not least because of the dramatically increased altitude, but I’m backing the Celtics to cope this weekend.
Boston were widely tipped for the NBA Finals before the season started, and while they haven’t had things all their own way so far, the steady return to fitness of Gordon Hayward and the way that Kyrie Irving is helping to bring along young stars Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown promises much for the weeks ahead.
Irving was in top form on Thursday night, steering Boston to victory in Phoenix, and although Utah are tougher opponents, the visitors look good value at odds against.
