Get 4/1 on Spurs to beat Burnley + Money Back If You Lose + £100 Bet Bundle

For new Betfair customers only. Get 4/1 Spurs to beat Burnley + Money Back If You Lose + £100 Bet Bundle.  The match is televised live on Sky Sports 1 from Turf Moor, kick off 13:30 Sunday.

Burnley begin the day in the relegation zone but just one point from safety.  Sean Dyche’s players will need to keep Harry Kane quiet to stop him from adding to his impressive goal tally.  Hugo Lloris is kept out of the Spurs goal through injury and Burnley have Long and Marney both out.  All three are recovering from knee injuries.

Spurs go into the match as favourites, and have faint hope of a top four finish which is mathematically possible.  If that’s going to happen they must win on Sunday.  These enhanced odds are therefore looking pretty generous.

Written in the stars? Arsenal and Tottenham Champions League Preview

newcastle-united arsenal tottenham-hotspur sunderland

 

 

History and the bookies have Arsenal as favourites to twist the knife into Tottenham hearts in the Lilywhites’ Champions League bid for the second year running.

The Gunners smashed Newcastle at the Emirates 7-3 earlier this season – and have not been beaten at St James’ Park since way back in 2005. And, of course, any kind of win for Wenger’s team will do.   Last year a very dodgy defence at West Brom gifted Arsenal third spot over Spurs on the final day of the season.  With Magpies boss Alan Pardew already declaring his lack of interest in this fixture, the now safe black and whites are clearly on autopilot.

It’s been a long road back for Arsenal after Lennon and Bale punished them at White Hart Lane to widen the points gap to seven in the last North London derby.  But, slip ups by Spurs and a relentless run of wins by the Gunners has put them in the box seat once again.  Spurs fans will hope that their men can do their job at the Lane but they have dropped Premier League points at home by some of the lesser teams in this campaign already.  If they do go ahead, all radios will be tuned in to how seriously Newcastle have taken their task at St James’.  Let’s hope for some drama.

Predictions: Arsenal 2-1 Newcastle, Tottenham 3-1 Sunderland

Tottenham v Everton Preview: Spurs stars sidelined as Moyes sweats on Mirallas

White Hart Lane, Sunday April 7th; kick off 14:05. Ref: Andre Marriner
Live on ESPN

Spurs have a mini-crisis after Gareth Bale’s ankle injury, Jermain Defoe still sidelined, and Aaron Lennon and William Gallas recovering from injuries they also suffered against Basel on Thursday night.  For Everton, it’s more of a suspension crisis as star players Fellaini and Pienaar sit out, while last week’s match-winner Kevin Mirallas could recover from a groin injury suffered against Stoke.

In their last meeting at Goodison Park, Everton managed to score two late goals to win the match at the death.  The same thing happened again to Tottenham just down the road away to Liverpool. The Lilywhiltes are in a great position to finish in the top 4 and need to get their momentum going again for the run in.

Everton have now won three consecutive Premier League matches for the first time since January 2010, with all of those games being at Goodison.  Only the Manchester teams have a better home record than Everton (33 points from 16 games).  In contrast, David Moyes’ team have not won in their last three matches away from home in the Premier League (lost 2, drawn 1).

At this same stage last season, Harry Redknapp’s Spurs were a point better off than this season under AVB.  Everton’s Croatian striker Nikica Jelavic likes playing against Tottenham, having scored in both of his appearances against Spurs, but just the once in his last 14 Premier League matches.

Spurs will again be leggy from a Thursday night Europa League match, so the Toffees will have a better chance of emulating Fulham’s rare win at White Hart Lane.  The injuries to Bale, Lennon and Gallas could prove to be decisive.  Spurs will also need to contain the dangerous and in-form Leighton Baines.  Everton look good value for an away win.

Premier League Preview & Tips April 6,7,8th April 2013

Reviews of all upcoming English Premier League fixtures from 6th to 8th April 2013.  Last week we gave predictions on the 8 Saturday games and got 5 correct results with 1 perfect score.

Sat 6 Apr 2013 – English Premier League

readingReading v Southamptonsouthampton

Madejski Stadium, Saturday 6th April 2013, kick-off 12:45

Reading are in deep trouble, having picked up just 5 points from 16 games away from home this season.  It doesn’t take a genius to work out that this is a must-win at home for the Royals if they have any realistic hope of avoiding returning to the Championship.  They’ve now lost 6 Premier League matches in a row.

The Royals have made a habit of putting themselves in difficult positions early on in games, conceding the first goal 19 times this season already.

Southampton are coming off a fantastic win at home against Chelsea and will be full of confidence. The Saints have scored more times than any other team outside the top seven (44 goals) but they have not yet won away from home under Mauricio Pochettino in 4 EPL games.

Reading will be desperate to give themselves some hope of climbing off the bottom of the table but if they concede first again in this game it could signal the beginning of the end of the Royals’ Premier League survival battle.

Prediction: Reading 1 Southampton 3
Betting odds on full time result: Reading win 3.20, Draw 3.50 Southampton win 2.20

norwich-cityNorwich City v Swansea Cityswansea-city

Carrow Road, Saturday 6th April 2013, kick-off 15:00

Norwich City’s form over the last 14 games is the worst in the Premier League, with the Canaries collecting just 9 points.  Against Swansea they have won all 3 of their Premier League meetings though, which have all been high scoring affairs.  Captain Grant Holt will be looking to add to his tally of 3 goals in his last 2 appearances against the Swans.

Swans goal machine Michu has scored an amazing 39% of Swansea’s goals this Premier League season. This is bettered only Christian Benteke.  However, in 2013 Michu has not once found the net away from the Liberty Stadium.
Fact: Swansea have not won a single Premier League match in the 2012/13 season after they have gone behind.

Prediction: Norwich City 2 Swansea City 3
Betting odds on full time result: Norwich City win 2.60, Draw 3.25 Swansea City win 2.75

stoke-cityStoke City v Aston Villaaston-villa

The Britannia Stadium, Saturday 6th April; kick-off 15:00

Stoke aren’t exactly on fire at the moment, 34 points from 31 matches being their worst in five seasons in the EPL.   The Potters have just one win from their last 6 league matches played at the Britannia Stadium, very unlike the Stoke of seasons gone by.  They need to get more shots on target, as they’ve the lowest statistic in the league (together with Reading, 94 shots on target).

On Saturday, they come up against an Aston Villa team who are in even worse form, with the silver lining being the goal-scoring form of Christian Benteke (9 in 11 Premier League games).  Villa have sunk steadily lower in the table as the season has worn on and haven’t kept a clean sheet for 15 Premier League games.  Conversely, if Premier League matches ended at half-time, Aston Villa would be sixth in the table – above Tottenham, Liverpool and Arsenal.  Unfortunately, they don’t and Villa aren’t – so if they go ahead in the first half on you may know what to expect.

Difficult to predict, this one.  A low scoring draw could be on the cards.

Prediction: Stoke City 1 Aston Villa 1
Betting odds on full time result: Stoke City win 2.10, Draw 3.30 Aston Villa win 3.60

west-bromwich-albionWest Bromwich Albion v Arsenalarsenal

The Hawthorns, kick off 15:00 on Saturday

West Brom host a confident Arsenal side in what is shaping up to be one of the games of the day.

The Gunners had an impressive 26 shots against Reading on Saturday although only six were on target.  And although Arsenal have won their last 3 EPL games against West Brom, Steve Clarke’s men have won back-to-back matches at The Hawthorns against Sunderland and Swansea.

For the hosts, Shane Long is due a goal – he has not scored in his last 430 minutes of football.  The same can be said of Theo Walcott who has zero goals in his last 5 matches.

Arsenal are on a fine run of form and have a knack of scoring late goals this season. In fact, no other team has scored more goals after the 76th minute (The Gunners have netted 15).
The Baggies are no easy beats and they will be out to avenge their loss at West Ham last week by halting Arsenal’s great run towards a top four finish.

The Gunners are the favourites to win this with the bookies.

Prediction: West Bromwich Albion 2 Arsenal 2

Betting odds on full time result: West Brom win 3.75, Draw 3.60 AWAY win 1.95

Sun 7 Apr 2013 – Premier League

liverpoolLiverpool v West Hamwest-ham-united

Anfield, Sunday April 7th, 2013; kick off 13:30

Following his 4 shots on Sunday, Luis Suarez has produced the most shots on-target (60) in the Premier League this season.  Liverpool have won 6 of their last 8 Premier League games against West Ham and will fancy themselves to overpower them on Sunday, too. The Reds’ home form is excellent with five wins from their last six at Anfield.

For the Hammers, Andy Carroll has scored four times in his last six EPL games, but will be unavailable to play here which significantly blunts the Hammers’ attacking options and aerial strength.

Some pretty good odds on a draw on this one, and massive returns for a rare Hammers win at Anfield.  Stranger things have happened in sport…

Prediction: Liverpool 3 West Ham 0
Betting odds on full time result: Liverpool win 1.33, Draw 5.25 AWAY win 9.00

In their last meeting at Goodison Park, Everton managed to score two late goals to win the match at the death.  The same thing happened again to Tottenham just down the road away to Liverpool. The Lilywhiltes are in a great position to finish in the top 4 and need to get their momentum going again for the run in.

chelseaChelsea v Sunderlandsunderland

Stamford Bridge, Sunday April 7th; kick-off 15:00

Chelsea will be glad to be back at Stamford Bridge, having failed to win any of their last four away games. The Blues’ away form (over five games) is actually worse than both Queens Park Rangers and Villa’s.  But Sunderland is a rich source of points for Chelsea – they’ve won 15 of their last 16 Premier League clashes with Sunderland.

Paolo Di Canio, who has already had to contend with a torrid media frenzy over non-football issues,  inherits a Sunderland side who have the worst record in the Premier League in the last 8 matches – just three points gained. He is the fifth manager to start his time in a Premier League job with a trip to Stamford Bridge. None of the previous four have won there.

It’s a big ask for Sunderland to win against the might of this expensive and superior Chelsea team who rarely lose two in a row.  Will the ‘new manager effect’ kick in for the Black Cats?  Good betting odds if it does, but perhaps not where the smart money will be.

Prediction: Chelsea 4 Sunderland 0
Betting odds on full time result: Chelsea win 1.33, Draw 5.00 Sunderland win 10.00

newcastle-unitedNewcastle v Fulhamfulham

St. James’ Park, Sunday April 7th; kick-off 15:00

The Magpies will be glad to be back at St James’ – Only Reading have a worse away record than Newcastle this season. 25 of Newcastle’s 33 points have been picked up at home and the Magpies have won only once in 16 games away from St. James’ Park.  If they win this, it’ll be 4 straight home wins.

For Fulham, Dimitar Berbatov is on top form, having provided 8 of Fulham’s 13 shots on target in their last four Premier League games (against Stoke, Sunderland, Spurs and QPR) and scoring in every one of them.  The Cottagers have won 5 of their last 7 Premier League games against the Magpies and have only lost once in their last 5 away games.

Given Newcastle’s league table position (just 3 points above the relegation places), they should come out hungrier than Fulham (39 points and in 10th position) who do not have as much to play for this season now.  Or will fresher Fulham have too much for their Europa League travelling opponents – after all, Tottenham recently came undone at White Hart Lane in similar circumstances against the men from Craven Cottage.

Prediction: Newcastle 2 Fulham 1
Betting odds on full time result: Newcastle win 2.05, Draw 3.40 Fulham win 3.60

queens-park-rangersQPR v Wigan Athleticwigan-athletic

Loftus Road, Sunday 7th April 2013, kick-off 16:10

Harry will need to tell his players to look at Wigan’s fighting spirit if they are going to do a Houdini themselves. Redknapp’s team have the worst shot conversion rate in the Premier League at under 10%.  One one hand, QPR have conceded fewer goals (51) than at the same stage of last season (54).  On the other, they have scored seven fewer (28 v 35).  Winning just the one home game in the last seven at Loftus Road is worrying.

For Wigan, Arouna Koné has scored 6 EPL goals in his last eight appearances as the Latics traditional late push gather momentum.  They have lost only one of their last five Premier League away matches, winning two of these.  Will the great escape experts win this six-pointer?  The stats suggest that they just might.

The bookies have QPR as favourites though, with the best returns for a draw or a Wigan win.

Prediction: QPR 1 Wigan Athletic 2

manchester-unitedManchester United v Manchester Citymanchester-city

Old Trafford, Monday April 8th; kick-off 20:00

Although still mathematically possible that United could be pipped to the Premier League title by City again, this is the game that City simply must win to keep any hope alive.  But it would be some feat.  Manchester United will be aiming to keep their seventh Premier League clean sheet in a row, having not conceded for 627 minutes.  It seems Fergie’s warning about never again losing the title on goal difference was heard loud and clear.

And with United having dropped only 3 points from a possible 51 against bottom-half opposition this season, it’s easy to see how they’ve got so far ahead of the chasing pack.

For City, they have to go for it so expect to see an attacking game with United looking for opportunities on the counter.  Man City’s Silva has created more chances per match than any other player in the Premier League this season (3.3). A City win would certainly make for an interesting finish to the season – and for better odds on this game.

Prediction: Manchester United 2 Manchester City 3
Betting odds on full time result: Man Utd win 2.20, Draw 3.40  Man City win 3.25

Swansea City v Tottenham Hotspur match preview & odds

Match preview for Swansea City v Tottenham on 30th March 2013 Easter weekend, plus betting odds.

swansea-citySwansea City v Tottenhamtottenham-hotspur Hotspur

Liberty Stadium, Saturday, 30 March 2013, Kick-off: 15:00 GMT

Swansea are hoping to welcome back Flores back with Augustien a doubt while Lennon and Dawson are likely to return for the visitors.  This is very difficult game to predict.  Tottenham were world-beaters just a few games back and then their confidence seemed to vanish after snatching defeat from the jaws of victory against Liverpool.

Swansea have revelled in winning their first major silverware and have all but secured another season in the Premier League.  Cast your mind back to Tottenham’s League Cup over Chelsea in 2008 – the rest of that EPL season under Juande Ramos was very ordinary.  Swansea appear to be in a similar position this season and have little to play for now.

On the other hand, Spurs’ Bale, Defoe, Dempsey and Sigurdsson all scored for their countries during the international break and AVB will be hoping to see that form continue as every game from now on is a Champions League survival fight.  Arsenal are now breathing right down Tottenham’s neck and Chelsea and Man City are unlikely to give any respite.  Spurs to edge it.

Prediction: Swansea 1 Tottenham 2 (Correct Score odds of 9.00)

Betting odds on full time result: Swansea win 3.25, Draw 3.4, Tottenham win 2.37

EPL Tips – Sunday 10th March 2013 Newcastle, Stoke, Liverpool, Tottenham

Our quick betting tips for today’s football in the Premier League:

Newcastle United v Stoke City, 15:00 kickoff

These two teams have had their ups and downs this season, with the Potters just three points ahead of the Magpies.

Stoke are looking for their second double in three seasons after they grabbed a 2-1 victory in the reverse fixture at the Britannia, with two goals from Walters and Jerome in the final nine minutes to complete a memorable comeback win.  The Potters have suffered 1-0 defeats in three of their last four matches.

Newcastle on the other hand have won their last two matches at St James’ Park, scoring seven goals, although they have kept just the one clean sheet in the last ten league games.  New boy Moussa Sissoko has scored three goals in two Premier League matches at St James’ Park.

Tony Pulis’s team have conceded in every one of their previous 10 games and this looks set to continue – prediction is a Newcastle win at home in a relatively high scoring affair.

Newcastle United 3 – Stoke City 2.

 

Liverpool v Tottenham Hotspur, 16:00 kickoff

Things are looking much better for Liverpool in recent weeks, and things are just getting better with news that Daniel Sturridge and Martin Skrtel are both available following injury lay-offs.  On the Spurs side, pacy winger Aaron Lennon is a doubt after a new hamstring injury, as are Clint Demspey and Tom Huddlestone.

This is therefore a lot more of a contest than the table positions suggest.  Tottenham are flying high in third and Liverpool are below West Brom in 8th.  Desperate to climb into the top 4, the Reds will be giving it all in front of a home crowd hungry to end Tottenham’s unbeaten run.

Spurs have been irresistible form of late and will no doubt be looking to keep their run going but Liverpool at Anfield will be a massive challenge today.  We think a draw is on the cards at best for Spurs and a Liverpool win more likely.  Surely Gareth Bale cannot score yet again?

Liverpool 3 – Tottenham Hotspur 1

EPL Premier League Betting Tips

Premier League Tips – EPL football tipping March 2 & 3, 2013

A preview the pick of the EPL’s matches this weekend.

Premier League : Man Utd v Norwich match preview

Last EPL meeting: Norwich 1 Manchester United 0

With United streaking away with a seemingly insurmountable lead of 12 points at the top of the table, they have every reason to want to get closer to yet another title and silence the noisy neighbours.  Having said that, one of the few games the Red Devils have lost this campaign was to Norwich. A single Anthony Pilkington goal settled it back in November but we can’t see past revenge for Manchester United.

Of course there is the small matter of Real Madrid coming to town on Tuesday night so there may be some squad rotation to rest key players who will likely be warming the bench in case of emergency.

Norwich City have a good record against teams up the table though, having done well against the likes of Arsenal, Stoke, Spurs and Everton.   But against the might of Manchester United?  They are almost un-backable for this game so perhaps a cheeky few quid on the Canaries could pay off at about 10 to 1.

Tip: Manchester United 4 Norwich City 1

Premier League: Tottenham v Arsenal match preview

Last EPL meeting: Arsenal 5 Tottenham 2

A tricky one for both teams, this.  Spurs know that they must keep winning to maintain the gap against their North London rivals as well as Chelsea but will remember what happened last season only too well.  Could it happen again?  Arsenal have been winning ugly and will throw everything at this one at White Hart Lane.
Expectations will be high of Gareth Bale given his incredible form and the timing of his goals of late, but Spurs must get more from Emmanuel Adebayor now and he showed glimpses of form against West Ham on Monday night.  Tottenham have lost one game at home to the Gunners out of the last seven played at White Hart Lane.  Wenger’s team are looking to make it three wins on the trot against Spurs and have scored 10 goals against them in the last two encounters combined.

There will be goals in this match and we reckon both teams will be cautious.  Spurs are slight favourites to win this at home with most bookies but the Gunners will up their game for certain.

Whatever happens, all eyes will be on this Sunday 4pm kick off.

Tip: Tottenham 2 Arsenal 2
