There’s a couple of games I like the look of today do I thought I’d write a quick piece for GGT readers to let them know what I’ll be investing in.
Yesterday started fantastically for me when Derby County absolutely annihilated Blackpool in the early game, but then Manchester City could only manage a draw later on when I tipped the win. Lets hope today brings a winner or two.
Fulham v Aston Villa – 1.30pm
Advised Bet – Over 2.5 goals – 10/11 Ladbrokes
I was very tempted to advise both teams to score rather than over 2.5 goals but I’m going to go for the goals instead. Fulham are now without Martin Jol of course, and while I recommended a bet on Spurs during the week to beat the Cottagers there was a lot more to like about Fulham. Even if it’s just the fact that Jol is out of the way, Fulham looked in a lot better shape midweek against Tottenham and you would expect them to continue improving at least for a little while.
Aston Villa are undefeated in their last 5 Prem games and won’t be suffering from a lack of confidence; especially after their 3-2 win over Southampton at St. Mary’s last Wednesday. They’ve scored 5 goals in their last 2 away games (West Brom and Southampton), and won’t feel threatened by a Fulham defence that have kept just 1 clean sheet in their last 12 games in front of home fans.
Historically this isn’t a particularly high scoring fixture, but I really fancy that to change today. I can see at least 3 goals in this.
Arsenal v Everton – 4.00pm
Advised Bet – Arsenal win – 4/6 Betfred
I just can’t oppose Arsenal at the moment. They’ve won 5 of their last 6 games in all competitions which includes a home win over Liverpool and an important win against Borussia Dortmund out in Germany in the Champions League.
It’s true that Everton are in fine form and will be absolutely bouncing after their 1-0 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford last Wednesday. However, we know that Manchester United are not themselves, and that couldn’t be more different in Arsenal’s case.
The Gunners look unbeatable at the Emirates currently, and I’m not sure Everton are the team to halt their impressive run of results. 4/6 looks a very fair price about the home win to me, and it always pays to have form on your side.
