FOR me the biggest betting opportunity of the weekend is at Newcastle tomorrow with Liverpool the visitors.
I put up a couple of Super Singles on Wednesday after Jurgen Klopp’s men had won 6-1 at Southampton and of course the prices have dropped – I’ll post a preview of that game tomorrow.
There are seven matches to look at today and I like the look of Leicester at 15-8 at bet365 at struggling Swansea and with less risk you can have Leicester draw no bet at 10-11 with Betfred and that’s been cut.
Leicester have lost their last three visits to the Liberty without scoring but this is a different side to ones of the past and while they should win I’d keep the draw on side.
I also like Watford at home to Norwich. The Hornets have coped better with the step up from the Championship although Alex Neil’s side did well to take a point from Arsenal last week.
The difference could be Watford’s classy striker Idion Ighalo whose goal at Aston Villa last week made it eight for the campaign and he is 5-1 at bet365 to break the deadlock.
In the early game eaders Man City visit a Stoke side where they’ve won just two of their last eight visits. However, this season Stoke have been easier to beat at home with three defeats in six and if Sergio Aguero starts City should win but I can’t back them at a best 7-10 with Stan James.
Chelsea aren’t back to their best but they have won three in a row without conceding and should make it four at home to Bournemouth. For a game of this stature last season the Blues would have been about 1-7 so 4-11 at bet365 and others is attractive.
West Ham have won at Man City, Liverpool and Arsenal and also beaten Chelsea. Today they face the other side in the “big five” with a visit to Man United.
The Hammers have a poor record at Old Trafford and are again without Dimitri Payet and Diafra Sakho. Without that pair they’re unlikely to trouble the Premier League’s meanest defence. Best bet here is under 2.5 goals at 4-5 with bet365.
In the Championship take Hull at a Leeds side who have lost their last two 1-0 and consider Paul Lambert’s Blackburn at Bristol City. Lambo is unbeaten in five and Rovers are 2-1 at Coral.
I also like leaders Brighton at home to Charlton and Brentford, with new boss Dean Smith in charge, at home to MK Dons.
It’s FA Cup day and best bets could be Walsall at fellow managerless Chesterfield while Accrington, with six wins in their last seven away matches, are a big price to win at Portsmouth. They are 14-5 at Ladbrokes and 2-1 with bet365 on the draw no bet market.
