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.
