Premier League Predictions

August 15th, 2009 by enda Leave a reply »

Since it’s the first week of the new season I’ve decided to have a bit of fun and have a go at predicting the outcomes of the games. I checked Betfair and the odds for my predictions are a massive 2800/1, which probably doesn’t even reflect the chances of them happening :) However, If you’re backing multiples on betfair you can only have 8 selections on one coupon so you can’r actually back all 10 Premier League games. The minimum bet for multiples is also €2 so there’s no way I chance that amount of my kitty on this kind of bet. If I could place a smaller bet I’d definitely put my money where my mouth is for the fun of it! Here’s my tips:

  • Chelsea v Hull City : Home win - has to be Chelsea here. They’ll be keen to get of to a good start and I think Hull are going to find it very difficult this year.
  • Aston Villa v Wigan : Home win – Villa need to progress again and Wigan may be effected by Bruce exit.
  • Blackburn v Man City : Away win – On paper it has to be Man City although they need to improve their away form this year.
  • Bolton v Sunderland : Draw - this one will be tight and Sunderland are a value bet here imo.
  • Portsmouth v Fulham : Away win – Fulham struggled away from home last year, i think they can improve on that this year and this is as good a chance as any against a depleted Portsmoth side.
  • Stoke City v Burnley : Home win - I think Stoke’s impressive home form from last year will continue and I’m tipping Burnley for relegation.
  • Wolves v West Ham : Draw – Hard to call this one. I’m tempted to say away win but I think Wolves are the strongest of the 3 teams to come up and might upset a few teams at home this year.
  • Everton v Arsenal : Draw - Hard to call again. I expect these teams both to be pushing near the top end of the table and Everton can improve if they have a bit for luck with injuries.
  • Man Utd v Birmingham : Home win - Has to be United, although there’s defensive issues with Vidic, Neville, Brown out and Evans is suspect. United need to get off to a good start this year though.
  • Tottenham v Liverpool : Home win - Stevie G is a doubt for this one and I’m going for an upset here and a Spurs win. Spot the United fan!
