Daily Sports Tips – Monday 29th October
Minnesota Vikings vs New Orleans Saints
New Orleans to Win @ $1.70
As much fun as it would be, today’s big NFL game likely won’t match the drama from January’s playoff meeting. Both sides come into the game on the back of big road wins with the Vikings beating the Jets by 20 while the Saints won a tightly fought contest in Baltimore. Despite being the visiting team, there is a lot to like about the Saints this season with the way they have found offensive balance and should be able to put up enough points to get by the Vikings here.
Lazio vs Inter Milan
Inter to Win @ $2.88
A huge meeting between two of the top teams in Italy, both sides need all three points from this one to try and keep league leaders Juventus in sight. Since they played (and lost to) Juve, Lazio have been on a good run, winning six of their last seven games to help them move up the standings. Inter have to bounce back from a tough Champions League defeat but they do have the overall quality to blank Lazio and win a low scoring contest.
Tottenham vs Manchester City
Manchester City to Win @ $1.70
While hardly a nightmare campaign, Tottenham are having a season of moderate inconvenience with their new home still not ready and results not quite living up to their expectations. A win here would put them above rivals Arsenal and opponents Manchester City. The problem with that theory is City have not lost in the league this season and come into this game with the best defensive record in the league. While Tottenham have the attacking talent to get a goal or two here, City represent excellent value here and should be able to come away with a win to send them back to the top of the table.
