Midweek Premier League Football Betting
The Premier League is gearing up for a mid-week round of fixtures and after a myriad of upsets at the weekend the results will be more crucial than ever. Results went against Manchester United, Spurs, Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea, with Villa and Arsenal making gains in the jostle for the top four positions. Punters will be hoping an air of predictability returns to the league making betting slightly less risky than it has been recently.
Tuesday evening sees Man United bid to reverse their weekend horror show against Aston Villa face another midlands outfit, Wolverhampton Wanderers this time round. Despite Wolves stunning Spurs last time out it seems out of the question that Sir Alex Ferguson will allow anything less than an emphatic win for United to play out. Wolves usually utterly capitulate when faced with top class opposition and don’t be surprised to see united rack up a healthy score-line at Old Trafford. 6/4 on more than 3.5 goals seems like a decent shout and 4/1 on Berbatov being first scorer also could also be worth a look. The Bulgarian is due a goal and should come in to add quality to United’s misfiring frontline.
At the bottom of the league there is a crucial match involving Bolton and West Ham. It’s a ‘mustn’t loose for both clubs and the smart money should be on a draw. Preferably 0-0 at 11/1 or 1-1 at 6/1. The unpredictable nature of both Sunderland and Aston Villa’s form means that predicting the outcome of this game seems really hard. Perhaps checking out the odds on goal-scorers could prove more lucrative. In form Gabriel Agbonlahor is a cool 6/1 to be first on the score-sheet and his fellow England fringester Darren Bent comes in at 5/1.
Moving to Wednesday the game that immediately captures the eye is the match involving Spurs and Man City, as both clubs aim to prove that they are more than pretenders to a Champions League spot. Victory by either would go a way to appeasing the sceptical media and condemn the other to more doubts within the punditocracy. The game is likely to be close and be blessed with goals as city are generally more fruitful against teams that try to play back at them and Spurs are fourth top scorers in the league at home. Check out the odds of over 3.5 goals (7/4) or perhaps even a 2-2 draw (16/1) when thinking about betting.
The superb 2-1 victory at Anfield on Sunday will be rendered worthless if Arsenal take anything less than three points against a Burnley side that are in danger of being found out at this level. Burnley’s home record is still good however and may be a tricky proposition for Arsenal, who have already lost three times away this season- The Clarets are a tempting 6/1 to beat the Londoners by any score. Burnley have only failed to score at home once this season so expect goals for both teams and perhaps a 2-1 victory for the Gunners at 15/2.
