Apr 24: English Betting Preview


LEICESTER’S stay at the top has been helped by being able to play almost the same 11 week after week. Today against Swansea they face a big test without star striker Jamie Vardy who is banned after last week’s red card against West Ham.

The Foxes gap is down to five points after being held by the Hammers and they need eight points from their final four games to guarantee the title.

Once again they’re playing a day before Spurs and even without  Vardy I expect Claudio Ranieri’s men to win.

Leicester – who bookies continue to underestimate – were 4-5 with Betfred against a side who looked pretty disinterested as they crashed 3-0 at Newcastle last week. Now it’s 8-11 but still worth backing.

Leonardo Ulloa is a pretty decent deputy for Vardy and is 11-2 at Paddy Power to score first. Swansea conceded two from corners last week so the likes of Leicester centre-halves Robert Huth and Wes Morgan will fancy their chances from a set-piece. Huth is 8-1 at Betfred to score and skipper Morgan 15-1 with McBookie.

To score first it’s Huth 21-1 and Morgan 40-1 – both at BetVictor.

It’s tighter than ever at the foot with one points separating Norwich, Sunderland and Newcastle after the Geordies battled back from 2-0 down to earn a points at Liverpool. However, they have played one more game than Norwich and two more than Sunderland.

It’s Sunderland who look best placed to survive but face a tough one at home to Arsenal tomorrow.

The Gunners picked up a morale-boosting win over West Brom on Thursday but could be bullied out of this one. I’m risking Sunderland draw no bet at 12-5 with bet365 and Jermaine Defoe to score at 15-8 with Ladbrokes.

Today’s FA Cup semi-final between Watford and Crystal Palace is tough to call. It’s honours even in the Premier League with an away win apiece by one goal so it should be a tight affair.

Palace are warm favourites at 6-4 with bet365 but I fancy Watford to cap a great first season back in the top flight by reaching the Final.

Watford are a biggest 11-5 at 888sport to win in 90 minutes and 11-10 at Paddy Power to reach the Final.

After both Scottish Cup semis went to extra time last weekend this could follow. A shoot-out pays 5-1 and Watford would be favourites to win it – 10-1 at William Hill – if Heurelho Gomes who saved two Saido Berahino spot-kicks last week had been given the nod ahead of Costel Pantilimon.

However, the No.2 has been given the nod for the cup clash and he’s a decent deputy.
