Bet UK’s Hit The Target Treble - 1st January
The hectic Christmas period is almost over, with just one more midweek match until we reach the latter stages of the FA Cup. In the New Year, we start with the Premier League and EFL, and Bet UK have picked out 3 teams we fancy to win for our Hit The Target Treble. Each round of fixtures, we’ll be boosting 3 teams to win over at Bet UK’s online betting. Remember, you can get the latest football betting odds for all matches across Europe this weekend with Bet UK.
Leicester comfortably bounced back from their 4-0 thrashing at home to Liverpool with a 2-1 win away at the London Stadium. In that game, Jamie Vardy, Ricardo Periera and James Madison were rested in that match, amongst others. Brendan Rodgers has already revealed that his side will be back to full strength against Newcastle. If everyone is back and fully fit, then surely there can only be one winner at St James Park? Newcastle have been tough to beat at home this season, but fell to Everton at the weekend and looked toothless throughout the match. With 9 potential first team players missing for Steve Bruce, he won’t be expecting a surprise win against Leicester.
Tottenham have risen to 6th place in the league since Jose Mourinho was hired in November and look like the side we all expected them to be at the start of the season. Harry Kane and Dele Alli continue to impress under their new management, with even Christian Eriksen chipping in with a goal against Norwich. They weren’t massively impressive at Carrow Road, but they have consistently been exciting when playing attacking football. When they face Southampton on New Year’s Day, they’ll be facing the second-worst defence in the Premier League. This is a side that has lost 9-0 at home already this season and haven’t kept a clean sheet at home so far this season. If Tottenham can continue to impress going forward, then there is no chance of Southampton containing them.
Once again, Wolves have managed to climb up the table without gaining any plaudits and almost no one paying serious attention to them. In the last week, they’ve came from behind to beat Manchester City and were a contentious VAR decision away from a draw away at Liverpool. Especially against Liverpool, Wolves were hugely impressive and would have felt very hard done by not to come away with a point. Raul Jiminez and Adama Traore were both rested in that match so will come into the New Year with full fitness. They face a Watford side that has turned their season around since Nigel Pearson came to Vicarage Road, but there is still a long way to go for the Hornets. Their wins have come against a disappointing Manchester United side, and an awful Aston Villa side, so there is still little to look back on and be impressed with. If Wolves can perform anywhere near their best, then we should see Watford tested for the first time under Pearson and it won’t be as easy for the last 3 games.
