- More Tottenham goals in the second half @ 27/20

- Harry Kane to score first @ 9/2

- Harry Kane has scored in two of his three career appearances v Liverpool
Champions Leicester City are the only team to have stopped Spurs scoring a Premier League goal in front of the faithful so far in 2016 so leaky Liverpool can’t be expected to keep a clean sheet here.
However, neither can the hosts, who recorded only their fifth home shut out of the calendar year against Crystal Palace last time out. Both teams to score looks an absolute banker at odds of 3/5.
The Lilywhites, who haven’t beaten this opponent since 2012, can be backed at 27/20 to prevail here, with star striker Harry Kane assuming first goalscorer favouritism at 9/2.
It’s a price that must be considered decent given the England international has found the net twice in three appearances against the Reds.
If Kane is to bag, expect it to come yon side of the interval as, prior to Craig Dawson’s own goal in the penultimate home game of the previous campaign, Spurs had struck just twice before the break in seven Premier League games at base camp.
More home goals in the second half is the stand out option in the Tottenham v Liverpool betting at 27/20.
A Look at Liverpool’s Betting Odds
The Reds were frustrated against a regimented Burnley side in their previous Premier League game, but their 5-0 win at Burton proved that against a more open outfit, their incision up front can be devastating.
As hosts and favourites, the onus is on the Lilywhites to attack and this certainly favours Jurgen Klopp’s troops, whose odds to beat Spurs stand at 19/10, while the draw, as it was in the corresponding fixture last term, is on offer at 23/10.
Since hammering six past Aston Villa last term, Liverpool have just once found the net more than twice on their travels and that came in the decimation of Burton in midweek.
They’ve struck more than a solitary goal in just three away games aside from the aforementioned EFL Cup result following that Villa bashing and failed to find the net against one domestic rival in that time.
It increases the appeal in Liverpool’s odds to score exactly one, which are currently 31/20. In terms of a correct score punt, 1-1 is on offer at 5/1.
