Mythbusters: 4 favourites to bet against on Saturday
We search the Premier League, la Liga, Bundesliga and Eredivisie for the underdogs who could cause a shock this weekend.
Tottenham not to beat West Brom –
Despite winning five of their last six at Wembley, Spurs are yet to convince when hosting inferior opposition.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side have only managed 1-0 victories over Barnsley, Bournemouth and Crystal Palace so far this season, and West Brom will surely pose a similar challenge.
The Baggies are in poor form themselves, but have made a change in the dugout and are worth backing to frustrate their nervous hosts at this price.
Atletico Madrid not to beat Levante –
Atletico Madrid have only won three of their last 11 matches, and Levante have a good chance of extending that sequence.
The hosts have already held second-place Valencia to a draw this season, as part of a run that has seen them lose just two of their seven home games.
Diego Simeone’s side have drawn four of their last eight away matches 0-0, and this one could follow a similar pattern.
Dortmund not to beat Schalke –
Dortmund’s dreadful form renders this one a no-brainer.
Peter Bosz’s side have not won any of their last five home matches, a run that has included a draw against Apoel Nicosia and defeat to bottom-half Stuttgart in their last league match.
Conversely, five wins out of six – including their last three away from home – have sent Schalke second, so they have to be backed to not lose this game.
Feyenoord not to beat Groningen –
Feyenoord may be Eredivisie champions, but their form is nothing to be celebrated.
Saturday’s visitors have only won one of their last nine matches, including a failure to beat bottom-side Roda away at the end of October.
Groningen have only lost one of their seven home matches this season, beating sixth-place Vitesse Arnheim in their last outing, and are a fantastic bet to take at least a point from this one.
