IT was Liverpool v Arsenal on Saturday and today the big game's Spurs v Man United.

My main bet at Anfield was on over 2.5 goals and both teams to score – and that's a good route to follow at White Hart Lane.

Subscribers to the newsletter will know I've also sided with Man United to win but I wouldn't play for high stakes because on their day Spurs can match anyone.

But their 5-2 thrashing at Arsenal last week was a worry as is their record against the Reds – no wins in 25 meetings.

The return of Wayne Rooney is a boost for United but if Spurs stars Gareth Bale and Rafael van der Vaart don't make the game then be more confident about taking the champions.

Over 2.5 goals pays 3-4 at bet365 while both teams to score is 8-13 (various).

United are a best 8-5 with boylesports with Spurs 19-10 at BetVictor and Paddy Power and the draw 12-5 at bet365.

Rooney is a biggest 5-1 with William Hill, Paddy Power and BetVictor to hit the opener while Spurs' new dangerman is Louis Saha who is 12-5 with Skybet to net at any time.

The two lunchtime games are Newcastle v Sunderland and Fulham v Wolves. Newcastle are difficult to beat at home and having won this fixture 5-1 last season and at the Stadium of Light I can see them edging it again. They are 23-20 at Paddy Power.

Sunderland have been a dream under Martin O'Neill until last week but that 4-0 defeat at West Brom worries me. They were awful and although O'Neill will have them well warned the twin threat of Demba Ba and Papiss Demba Cisse can hurt a defence that looked dodgy.

It was Cisse who banged in the opener against Wolves last week so this time try Demba Ba at 5-1 with Paddy Power and BetVictor.

There were four goals at St James' Park last week and there can be few in this game. Again look at both to score at 8-11 with William Hill, Skybet and bet365 and over 2.5 goals at 1-1 with bet365.

Fulham have won five out of their last six at home with new Russian striker Pavel Pogrebnyak has scoring two. Back Fulham to beat Wolves at 8-13 with Betfred and consider Pogrebnyak at 6-4 with BetVictor to score.

There is a big game in the Championship with Cardiff hosting West Ham. The Welsh were impressive in the Carling Cup Final against Liverpool but going to extra time and then losing on penalties will have taken a lot out of them, mentally and physically.

Cardiff's league form was poor before the Final and it took them time to get going again. West Ham's last away match resulted in a superb 4-1 win at Blackpool and I can see them picking up another vital three points. They are a biggest 19-10 at William Hill.

      Chris, thanks for that. Just posted btts line for tomorrow and have included the three EPL games. You’ll probably agree with that going by your selections.

    Top weekend of tips, i followed the method of picking 3 out of 4 over 4 bets, so made a small profit on my picks i put up. I’ll have a read of your R.Madrid column to see if i’ll be reinvesting some profit into that game later.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Chris, I’m playing safe to start with over 1.5 and over 2.5 goals plus Ronaldo to score then will play the in-running markets.

  3. Chris 12 years ago

    Got to say excellent tipping about Pogrebnyak to score as well, i did not do this bet but brilliant stuff.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Chris, the guy’s on fire. Wish I’d tipped him for a hat-trick!

  4. Chris 12 years ago

    Your right, I’d not really noticed the guy and then he goes and scores a hat-trick.

    I also had r.Madrid (-2) so doubled my money. Never in doubt really.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Chris, Real looked in the mood last night. I just kept backing them to score again on the in-running markets and made a few quid. Paul Watson, who is doing the Spanish football, knows his stuff and his write-up convinced me to go with the -2 and -3.

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Chris, it’s worth a look, pretty good value.
