May 16: Football Betting Preview


THE only issue to be settled in the Premier League is the third and fourth Champions League places.

Liverpool will seal theirs by beating Middlesbrough on Sunday so it’s a fight between Man City and Arsenal for the other spot.

City lead the Gunners by three points with a better goal difference so victory at home to West Brom tonight should be enough. And if not they have the insurance of a final-day trip to Watford that should yield a victory.

Arsenal are also in action tonight with a “gimme” at home to sorry Sunderland. In the last six meetings at the Emirates Arsenal have won and conceded with the other three being 0-0 draws.

Davie Moyes says he’ll play some kids after their woeful display against Swansea at the weekend and while he may see some hunger and desire he won’t be leaving with any points.

City and the Gunners are both extremely short with the double paying a best 2-5 at Betfred – that’s one for the big hitters. Risk them to win by more than one which pays a more palatable evens at bwin.

Alexis Sanchez is a doubt for the Gunners so Olivier Giroud should start. He has netted four in four against Sunderland and is 10-3 at Stan James to score first.

West Brom are the best of a mid-table bunch and could finish eighth but I tend to agree with Arsene Wenger that some sides are on the beach and they have a poor record at the Etihad losing six in a row.

City won 4-0 at The Hawthorns and I expect a convincing display with Gabriel Jesus possibly best bet for a goal. He is 13-5 at McBookie to break the deadlock.

Fulham remain favourites to reach the Premier League play-off final but are up against it after being held 1-1 at home to Reading. Best bet could be both to score at 20-23 with Marathonbet as Fulham will have to give it a go.

They did though lose 1-0 at Reading earlier in the season but drew 3-3 and 2-2 on two of their other recent visits.

Dundee United despatched Morton with the minimum of fuss and are slight favourites to qualify against Falkirk at 4-5 with bet365 with the Bairns 10-11.

Falkirk will be the fresher of the sides but it’s tough to call so let’s go both to score at 4-6 with Ladbrokes.

It’s a two-horse race for relegation between Hamilton and Inverness with the Accies in action at Ross County.

The Dingwall men have something Accies don’t – a goalscorer. County should win at 23-20 with William Hill and back Liam Boyce to bet first at 19-4 with McBookie.

Tonight’s other bottom-six match sees Motherwell entertain Killie and best bet could be Saturday’s hero Louis Moult to again score for Well at 6-5 with McBookie.

    Sky bet
    Man city win, to score 2+ goals, 5+ man city corners and 20+ West Brom booking points.

    City should batter these and West Brom won’t be able to cope with the pace meaning lots of late and clumsy challenges.
