Welcome to your ATL Extra weekend email...

Every Friday afternoon we look at a big game on the weekend fixture list, and highlight some of the unique betting stats from over on our Across the Leagues website.

And of course, along the way we’ll be looking to find a good few winning bets...

I also offer up my own Premier League Predictions every weekend, and you have the chance to join in, too – see below.

A quick update regarding our website:

  • I’m pleased to report that after last week’s website server changeover, our Across the Leagues website and FREE Top 10 Tables are now fully functional again – and bang up-to-date with all the latest unique betting stats. Everything has been fully checked and verified from our OPTA data feed

Let’s see what the latest stats & form say about the Saturday lunchtime game on Sky Sports...

THE BIG GAME – Tottenham v Watford

Premier League, Sat 12.30pm – Sky Sports

Match odds:

Tottenham 1/4 (1.25)       Draw 11/2 (6.50)     Watford 14/1 (15.00)

The history books tell us that you have to go right back to 1987 and the ‘old Division One’ for the last time Watford beat Spurs in the league. Tottenham have won 3 out of 3 since the Hornets returned to the top flight, most recently a 4-1 away win in the Premier League this January.

And current form points to the home team in pretty overwhelming fashion...

  • Tottenham have won their Last 5 games
  • And they’re on an 10-game winning run in the league at White Hart Lane
  • Watford have lost 6 of their last 8 away

Digging deeper, beyond the Match Result markets, the stats on our Across the Leagues members-only site also tell us that...

  • Tottenham have won the Most Corners in each of their last 5 home games, and in 73% at home for the season
  • Watford have been out-cornered in 7 out of 8 games (home & away) v current Top 6 sides this season
  • And opponents have won the Most Corners in 8 of Watford’s last 10 away games
  • Tottenham have received the Most Bookings in just one of their 15 home games this season
  • Watford have landed Most Bookings bets in 3 of their last 5 away games

Bookies offering Corners, Cards & Bookings markets for Tottenham v Watford include William Hill, 888 Sport and Skybet.

Here are my Predictions for this weekend’s Premier League games. And as ever, in the interests of comparison, here’s what Paul Merson on Sky Sports and Mark Lawrenson on the BBC think, too...





Tottenham v Watford
Man City v Hull
Middlesbrough v Burnley
Stoke v Liverpool
West Brom v Southampton
West Ham v Swansea
Bournemouth v Chelsea
Sunderland v Man Utd
Everton v Leicester
Crystal Palace v Arsenal

Enjoy the football.

I’ll be back next week with more stats and predictions for you.


It’s also the Grand National this weekend…

You can get 100/1 on ANY horse you fancy in Saturday’s big race – great news if you fancy a horse that’s much shorter in the betting. You’ll need to open a new account with Racebets and the max stake is just £1. But value is value. Get 100/1 on any Grand National horse here

Best wishes,

Oliver Upstone
