Gambling’s Premier League Week 10 Predictions and Betting Odds
Some crazy results last week certainly threw a few curveballs at all of us here at Gambling magazine, but this weekend we hope a more predictable set of results will help boost your gambling coffers.
Newcastle v Everton
Oh dear, oh dear. Every week we think Newcastle’s sensational run has to come to an end and every week they leave us all with egg on our faces. The Magpies’ win over Stoke last Monday spoke volumes about how far they’ve progressed as a club and with that in mind we can’t back them to lose at home. What we can back, however, is a stubborn Everton to defend staunchly and this game to be decided by a fine margin.
Bet: Under 2.5 Goals @ 8/11
Arsenal v West Brom
A sensational second half attacking performance from Arsenal saw them deliver a shock result at Stamford Bridge, but the one thing that came as little surprise was that their main man Robin Van Persie was among the goals. It should also be noted, however, that the performance had much to do with the form of Theo Walcott and we’re going to back the England speedster to give West Brom problems here.
Bet: Theo Walcott To Score Anytime @ 15/8
Aston Villa v Norwich
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – statistics can be used to paint any picture you want. True, Villa have only lost twice all season, but they’ve only won two games as well and we think it’s fair to say that “acceptable” is the best word to describe their season thus far. Alex McLeish’s men have become draw specialists and – with a combative Norwich coming to visit – this could be another one that ends up even.
Bet: Aston Villa and Norwich To Draw 1-1 @ 6/1
Blackburn v Chelsea
When Arsenal got thrashed 8-2 by Manchester United, their next game ended in a narrow 1-0 win. When Manchester United were drubbed by their city rivals, they beat Everton by the same margin the following week. The message we can take from this is that it’s important to get back to winning ways no matter how small the margin, and while we can’t back Chelsea to keep a clean sheet, a narrow win should follow.
Bet: Chelsea To Beat Blackburn 2-1 @ 7/1
Liverpool v Swansea
If there’s one bet that has stung us as often as not getting our money on Newcastle to win, it’s backing Suarez to score in every game he plays. So frequently the best player on the pitch, the Uruguayan just cannot seem to hit the target at the moment, but even without his goals Liverpool should have too much for their visitors here. Swansea have generally struggled on their travels and we fear a beating might be on the cards.
Bet: Liverpool To Win 3-0 @ 9/1
Manchester United v Sunderland
Trying to figure out how Sir Alex Ferguson will deploy his United side from one week to the next is starting to prove a real headache, but the one thing we can rely on is that he’ll set his team up to be defensively solid. Having conceded six at home to City, Ferguson won’t want to see any silly errors in this game and we’re backing a well-drilled United side to beat Sunderland without letting in a goal in this one.
Bet: Manchester United Only Team To Score @ Evens
QPR v Manchester City
Though they did manage to beat Chelsea on home soil a couple of weeks ago, Manchester City’s visit to Loftus Road will be a different proposition entirely for Neil Warnock’s men. Not only are the Citizens on an imperious run of form in the league, they also had the luxury of resting leading scorer Sergio Aguero against Villarreal midweek and we’re backing the Argentine to get back among the goals here.
Bet: Sergio Aguero To Score 2+ Goals @ 5/1
Wolves v Wigan
Not exactly one to get the pulse racing, this. Both sides have been in horrific form since the start of the season and this could well be a proverbial six-pointer when it comes to the final Premier League table. Given that Wolves have the home advantage and Wigan are notoriously shy of goals up front at the moment, you have to back Mick McCarthy’s men here – but rest assured it won’t be pretty.
Bet: Wolves To Win @ Evens
Bolton v Stoke
Stoke have been pretty poor in the Premier League games that have followed their UEFA Cup exertions and though Bolton have been awful so far this season, it would take a brave man to back the visitors here. However, taking both factors into consideration a stumble of sorts could see the Potters draw a blank at the Reebok but still come away with a share of the spoils thanks to Bolton’s misfiring attack.
Bet: Bolton and Stoke to Draw 0-0 @ 10/1
Fulham v Tottenham
Pretty much the opposite of Bolton’s clash with Stoke, Sunday’s London derby sees two teams that are capable of scoring heaps of goals on their day lock horns at Craven Cottage. Though both sides were involved in European action during the week, it should be noted that Harry Redknapp played a mostly second-string team and his side should be the fresher of the two in a game certain to yield goalscoring opportunities.
Bet: Over 3.5 Goals @ 21/10
