Looking at Saturday to begin with, there are no less than seven 3pm kick-offs. There is normally a lunch-time and evening game on Saturday, but this is not the case this weekend and it should make for a frantic afternoon.
There are perhaps no massively eye-catching fixtures on Saturday, but this doesn’t mean there won’t be plenty of entertaining matches.
In fact, there are lots of Saturday’s games that have clear favourites to take the three points. Therefore, could we be in for a shock or two in the Premier League this weekend?
For example, Arsenal will be expected to take the points at home to Everton, while Liverpool should do the business when they host Queens Park Rangers and nothing but a Manchester United win against Wolves is expected at Old Trafford. This is the Premier League though and this season in particular has been extremely unpredictable.
Elsewhere on Saturday afternoon, there are games that are expected to be much closer. Bolton at home to Aston Villa is a tough one to call for example, as is Swansea v Fulham and West Brom v Wigan.
Norwich at home to Newcastle then completes Saturday’s line-up, with the Canaries hoping to make the most of the visitor’s lack of options in defence. This contest at Carrow Road should be end to end and extremely good to watch, with the 6/4 on the Norwich home win looking a decent bet.
Moving onto Sunday’s fixtures, the lunch-time game sees Martin O’Neill take charge of Sunderland for the first time at home to Blackburn Rovers. Rovers are a big looking 7/2, which is sure to appeal after Yakubu hit four last week against Swansea. The Black Cats only lie one point above Steve Kean’s side and I think they are a better side. Blackburn have put some good perfomances in over the last few months without getting the return – we can’t say the same about Sunderland so go with the way side.
Then, Stoke City – who have won their last two games – take on a Tottenham side looking for their seventh Premier League victory in succession, so the odds of 11/10 immediately leap off the coupon. Everything is going right for Spurs at the moment, and although The Brittania is a tough place to go we certainly cannot desert Harry Redknapp’s side at the moment. Go with Tottenham to continue their momentum at a useful price.
As mentioned, the weekend’s action then comes to an end with Chelsea at home to Manchester City. What a Monday Night Football fixture this is. It really doesn’t get much better as a rejuvenated Chelsea side look to produce their best form against the Premier League leaders. Daniel Sturridge is the man on form with three in three and he could reap rewards at 6/1 to bag the first goal.
With David Luis and John Terry at the back I can’t back Chelsea with so much confidence, but with all the stick their defence has had in recent weeks I’m sure they will be putting their bodies on the line in this one. I can’t believe we will see another shambolic performance from the Chelsea back four and Man City will definitely not want to be beaten against one of their main title rivals.
Take the draw at Stamford Bridge at 11/5.
Good luck with your bets this weekend and don’t forget to take advantage of Bet365’s free bet offer!
