Dec 5: English Football Betting Preview


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.

I tipped Jamie Vardy to break Ruud van Nistelrooy’s record of goals in 10 successive top-flight games last week and he is 11-8 at William Hill and Betfred to net again.

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.

For my Super Single I’ve gone Leicester to score 2+ at 11-8 with William Hill, Ladbrokes and bet365 – they netted three at Newcastle and three at West Brom in their last two trips.

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.

Jose Mourinho has been singing the praises of Eden Hazard and the love-in could continue with the midfielder scoring the opener at 9-2 with Coral and Paddy Power.

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.

    Hi Mr F – First as I’m new to posting comments, I’d just like to say that for a few months I’ve been regularly visiting the site and am grateful for the tips from yourself, John B for the racing and everyone else that posts in the comments etc.
    With that out the way, I see that you have Man City best prices at 3/10 with Stan James. I was just wondering if you ever use paddy power as they are at my last check (10 mins ago) only 3/4 to beat Stoke which to me seems a good price even though augero is a doubt – enough fire power with Bony, De Bruyne etc.
    What do you think?

      gibbo, I quote best price and as you say Paddy Power are 3-4. Not sure where the 3-10 came from because they’ve never been that short. I reckon it should have been 7-10.
