Spurs v Chelsea, Liverpool Latest, Kean-Go
The bookies can barely split Spurs and Chelsea as they go head to head in Thursday night's big Premier League match, with the home side slight favourites at 6/4. Chelsea are 17/10 with the draw 12/5.
Last week against Manchester City, Frank Lampard came off the bench to bag the winner and Hills are offering 4/1 that any substitute scores a goal. Both Adebayor and Drogba are in fine form at the moment and Hills offer 5/2 that Adebayor scores more than Drogba, while the same price is available for Drogba to outscore his Tottenham counterpart. Both sides have settled into a relatively rich vein of form and Hills go 11/8 about the pair finishing in the top four.
Match Betting: 6/4 Tottenham; 17/10 Chelsea; 12/5 Draw
Adebayor/Drogba Match Bet: 5/2 Adebayor; 5/2 Drogba; 4/5 Tie
Any substitute to score a goal: 4/1
You Bet Suarez absence to Carroll's benefit.
William Hill have pushed Liverpool out to 80/1 from 66/1 to win the title following Luis Suarez's lengthy ban. They are 5/1 to win the league without the presence of the Manchester sides and 6/4 to finish in the top four. While the lengthening odds suggest that Liverpool may well miss Suarez up front, one man who is sure to benefit is Andy Carroll with Hills shortening his odds of outscoring former Liverpool striker, Fernando Torres, from 11/10 to 4/6.
"Liverpool will certainly miss Suarez's trickery and more importantly his goals, but we think that Andy Carroll will step up to the plate and bag some goals in the Uruguayan's absence," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
Carroll/Torres Match Bet: 4/6 Carroll; 11/10 Torres
