In-play betting: Spurs value to win from behind at Saints

The Premier League is reaching the business end of the season and BetStars will be at the heart of the action every step of the way to enhance your betting experience.

We have dozens of markets for every game such as match result, first goalscorer, correct score and time of first goal, but you can also bet inplay on games in the UK and Europe.

For those who like to have skin in the game while watching the big match then live betting is the thing for you and we have the numbers to help you bet smarter.

We have crunched the latest data to produce our football tips for the weekend and suggested where we think it may be wise to play a waiting game in three matches.

Southampton vs Tottenham

Southampton can be forgiven for coming away from Old Trafford empty handed last weekend, but their habit of letting points slip away when they have taken the lead has been a feature of their season.

Saints have taken just a 52.9% share of the points when going ahead, comfortably the worst record in the Premier League, while only Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool are better at taking points than Spurs (32%) when conceding the first goal which is probably what you'd expect for a team that is third in the table.

Tottenham are just 9/10 to win at St Mary's but it may pay dividends to see if Southampton get their noses in front before lumping on the north Londoners who have fallen behind in six of their last eight Premier League games, but have twice come back to win and once got a fortunate draw against Arsenal during that period.

For those who like to get their Premier League bets on early, Tottenham to win from behind can be backed at 15/2.

This weekend's best bets

If you're interested in football accumulators, check out our regular betting columns:

Chelsea vs Wolves

Wolves have taken an impressive nine points from top-six sides this season which included a 2-1 win against Chelsea in December.

Then, they trailed 1-0 at half-time but turned it around with second-half goals from Raul Jimenez and Diego Jota.

Scoring in the second half has been a feature of Wolves' campaign with 26 of their 37 goals coming after the break, while the Blues have conceded 60% of their goals after half-time since the start of last season.

More goals after the break at 21/20 may look skinny but seems the right play, while Wolves to win the second half again at 9/2 is an interesting option for the more adventurous.

Feature match previews for this weekend

If you're interested in tips on our feature matches for the weekend, check out our in-depth previews below:

Newcastle vs Everton

Everton remain way out front for goals scored in the second half since the start of last season with a 62.7% record and in the current campaign 23 of their 39 goals (59%) have come after the break.

Only Huddersfield (6) have scored fewer goals in the second half than Newcastle (11), but six of their last seven matches in all competitions at St James' Park have produced more goals after the break.

That's good enough for us and so the last of our in-play betting tips is to take the 11/8 on most goals coming in the second half.
