Betting Spy: Spurs and Everton are a solid double

A rather too laid-back penalty from Leicester’s Ryad Mahrez sunk Betting Spy’s double last week.

Only a German likes penalties....

And it has also cost the midfield maestro spot-kicking duties for the forseeable future.

I’m more of a “smash it hard” type when it comes to penalties – it’s always a worry when the taker tries to get too clever.

But it would be a harsh fan to turn on Mahrez – he has been a revelation this season and a saviour of many a Dream Team manager.

The Foxes take on Stoke this Saturday which looks like a punters nightmare so I’ll happily give that a swerve.

Spurs are catching the eye of a few people lately and they look a decent bet to win away at a Crystal Palace side who have stopped scoring.

The Eagles have fired blanks in their last five league games which makes the odds against a Tottenham win even more attractive.

You won’t get rich at 6/5 so let’s double it up with Everton to beat Swansea at Goodison Park.

The Toffees are playing some really good stuff without getting their reward in terms of points but they should have too much for struggling Swansea.

The Spurs/Everton double pays a shade over 5/2 which looks a solid weekend punt.

If you fancy chancing your arm a bit more two bigger prices leap off the coupon this week.

Newcastle look to be getting their game together and can be backed at 3/1 to win away at a Watford side who seem to be stuttering a bit.

West Ham are an even bigger price at 4/1 to do the double over Man City.

We’ve already beaten them at the Etihad and 4s is a bit of an insult to the Irons considering their recent form.

Now I’m never one to take an insult from a bookie so I’ll be at the Boleyn Saturday clutching my pink slip in the hope of three points and a nice payout.
