I’ve had some winning selections in each of the past few weeks, and hopefully the first weekend of January will bring the big jackpot with this 11/1 treble.
As always, I’ll be playing my three Premier League stars as singles too. Two winners would be lovely, three would be absolutely fantastic.
Come on boys, do it for Martin.
Manchester City V Leicester City. 12:45PM
BET: Sergio Aguero to score anytime @ 8/13 with Coral
Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off is a potential title-decider (I know, madness) and it’s a game where Manuel Pellgrini will need his biggest stars to shine if he wants to end his Manchester City tenure with a league title. I’ve no doubt that Sergio Aguero will turn it on for the big occasion.
The Argentina striker might have suffered his injuries but, when fit, he is still the Premier League’s best striker by a mile. Injuries to the likes of Kevin De Bruyne will pile the responsibility on the 27-year-old’s shoulders, but he is more than ready to underline his quality once more.
Aguero has scored three goals over the course of his last two matches at the Etihad. With Leicester often conceding, and the hosts bagging goals for fun in Manchester, I think he’ll emerge as the match-winner just like he did on Tuesday at Sunderland.
My bet of the day? Most definitely. Even if the odds could be higher.
Liverpool V Sunderland. 3PM
BET: James Milner to score anytime @ 10/3 with Coral
It’s another big weekend for Jurgen Klopp’s men if they want to mount a serious challenge for Champions League qualification. The Reds will need their biggest and best players to stand up and be counted, the experienced James Milner could be one to do just that.
Regardless of where he operates from, Milner will pose a threat. The potential Anfield return of Jordan Henderson should help Liverpool dictate the game against one of the lesser sides in the division too. I think Milner could be the one to benefit.
This stands out as they type of game where Liverpool will need to be patient. But I do believe the breakthrough will come. If it comes early, there’s every chance that they could get a few goals, which would make Milner an even better shout.
Milner is a potential shout for penalties too. He’s got to be worth a punt.
Tottenham Hotspur V Watford. 3PM
BET: Harry Kane to score anytime @ 8/11 with Coral
Watford have been a pleasure to watch this season, but I can’t see them stopping a brilliant Spurs from picking up another victory this weekend. And it has to be the main man Harry Kane that stands out as a potential source of goals.
Kane is already well on his way to reach the 20-goal milestone again following his midweek brace, and a home game against one of the newly promoted sides is a fantastic chance to extend his tally. He should be confident after scoring against Sunderland in his last White Hart Lane appearance too.
The 22-year-old has often punished the league’s lesser outfits, and that includes the newly promoted clubs. One thing I do know about him is that he will stick away any chances that come his way. While Watford’s defence has been good, I can’t see them keeping out Tottenham and their phenomenal England striker.
And if he’s joined on the scoresheet by Milner and Aguero, it’ll be the perfect start to what will hopefully be a prosperous February.
If all three players score, a £10 treble with Coral will return £121.40.
