JORDAN’S back and I hope he’s feeling much better.
He says: “Quiet week for me and I’m £2.50 down with Man City not managing to get a corner in the second half the other night.
“Some might think this is a silly bet but one I believe holds value. Aston Villa are down and out and will be playing their last Premier League game in front of the home fans today.
“They’ve known their fate for a couple of weeks now and with no nerves on the pitch they have been playing with freedom, scoring twice against Watford and Southampton in their last two.
“Newcastle have been in better form at the right time and this is a must-win. With Newcastle’s eagerness for three points and Villa’s nerveless playing style I can see this leading to goals.
“Both scored at St James’s and I think both will here today but where I think holds best value is Villa to score before the 77th minute. You could also get 13-10 on Villa to score in the 2nd half, with 6 of their last 9 goals being so.
“As I said not a lot for Villa to play for but can see this being fairly open and they should score so I’ll take my chances it’s before 77:00
“Second bet is a Swede who has four goals for Elfsborg this season and are playing a Gefle side who have conceded 12 in 2.”
Aston Villa – Goal before 77:00
(5-6, bet365) – 2.4 points
Victor Prodell (Elfsborg) to score
(51-50, 888Sport) – 1 point
