Premier League Tips 22-24 Aug

August 21st, 2009 by enda Leave a reply »

Here’s my predictions for this weekend’s games:

I’ve bet on one of these already and I may be putting on another bet tomorrow morning before kick off. If you fancy a bet yourself sign up to Betfair by clicking on the banner below for a £50 free bet.

  • Arsenal v Portsmouth: Home Win – Arsenal’s impressive start to continue and I expect goals in this one. Portsmouth will be gutted about the midweek defeat to Birmingham with such a late goal and will be keen to get their first points on the board, I dont think they’ll get them and there best hope for me is an outstanding performance from David James
  • Birmingham v Stoke City: Draw – Should be a cagey enough game, Stoke got by on home form last year and will be hoping to improve away this year. I think they might get a result here
  • Hull City v Bolton: Draw – I’ll go for Bolton to get something here after an opening day loss
  • Man City v Wolves: Home Win – Man City to maintain their 100% record. I expect them to be very strong and home this year just like last season
  • Sunderland v Blackburn: Home Win – This is a hard one to call but I’ll go for the home team although I think Blackburn did ok against Man City on the opening day and I dont expect them to have any relegation troubles
  • Wigan v Man Utd: Away Win – United need to recover after their loss away to Burnley. Anything less than a win is a disaster and Fergie would have had the hairdrier on full power since Wednesday night
  • West Ham v Tottenham: Away Win – London derby and Sean expects Spurs to faulter this weekend. I expect them to keep on scoring here and I think they can take all 3 points. Spurs for me offer the best odds and value out of this weeks games
  • Burnley v Everton: Away Win – Everton have ambitions on pushing the big 4 this year and are a good side. They got mauled by Arsenal and I’m thinking they an get over the Arsenal win and the uncertainty regarding Jolein Lescott’s position at the club and get their season off to a start here. They are also coming of a 4-0 win in europe this week. Could Burnley get 2 massive wins in the space of 4 days? Not for me
  • Fulham v Chelsea: Away Win – I expect Fulham to make this a tough game for the blues but can anyone stop Chelsea? I expect them to grind out another result here. Fulham have also lost Andy Johnson up front so are loosing a bit of fire power for this one
  • Liverpool v Aston Villa: Home Win – I’m tempted to say draw as you wouldn’t expect Villa to be without points after 2 games but I think Liverpool will be too strong for them at Anfield. They justified their short odds earlier in the week by crushing Stoke
  • So far I have 6/10 in last weekend’s games and 3/6 in the midweek fixtures. I’d like to improve on this, so let’s see how I go this time. If you have any thoughts on my tips, please feel free to drop me a comment.

      One better than last week with 7/10. Bolton were unlucky not to get something at Hull from what I seen on match of the day. Burnley had another outstanding result against Everton. How good would a double on Burnley beating United and Everton in one week be? I did say that wouldn’t expect Villa to be without points after 2 games but I really expected Liverpool to win. Good result for Villa, against the run of play.

      maybe you should place an accumulator this weekend ;-)

      I have one more bet planned. A nice safe even money shot that I’ll be lumping on hard. If you’re not over 60 I only need to risk 20 to seal the deal but if I have to bet more then so be it. My bet on Usain Bolt might be blown outta the water!
