It’s not often that you will find really good value in the “straight-up-have-a-flutter-on-who-beats-who” market, but West Brom are 13/2 (BetVictor) away to Arsenal on Saturday. Bookies will probably point to West Brom’s defeat to Stoke and the fact that Arsenal are unlikely to lose at home twice. Still, nice odds…
On the South coast, Bet365 are offering 13/8 on more than goals being banged in between Southampton and Reading at St. Mary’s. That’s a bet that could come in before the half hour mark!
In the West Midlands, Villa host Stoke. Few goals would be expected from a fixture that has produced just 8 goals in the last 6. All signs are these 2 will go under the 2.5 goal mark, as each has done a lot recently, but the best you’ll do in that market is 4/6 with BlueSQ. In such a tight game, you can get 6/5 on Only One Team To Score. For better value, you can get 17/2 on an 0-0 draw.
At the Stadium of Light, Juan Mata is 7/2 in the Score/Win double for Chelsea over Sunderland. That same bet is 9/4 with SkyBet, so obviously there’s been a lot of interest in it there.
At the Liberty Stadium in Swansea, there will be two teams meeting who are having wildly successful seasons. Norwich are unbeaten in 8 and the last team they enjoyed such a spell was October 1989! Swansea are coming off the back of a famous win at The Emirates last week. So, this is a tough call. 2 form sides who could beat any Premiership team on their day. But we’re plumping for the Anytime Scorer market here, where Anthony Pilkington is 5/1. He’s been quiet of late, but this game should have goals and Norwich can bang a couple. Pilkington is overdue one.
But all eyes will be on the Etihad Stadium this weekend, as City and ManYoo face off in what will surely be one of the most pivotal games of the season. These games can be tight, cagey affairs…well, they are when they play at Eastlands, anyway! As such, this game could be decided by whichever keeper plays better. BetVictor are offering 16/1 on ANY KEEPER (De Gea or Hart) winning the Man Of The Match Award. That’s where our money is going!
