One winner and 1 loser from last night’s action, so it’s still a profit if you are level staking. QPR did the business as I thought they would, but I was a little disappointed that Burnley didn’t manage to beat a struggling Watford. I was watching Sky Sports and The Clarets missed a couple of golden opportunities.
Anyway, on to Wednesday’s games in which we are treated to 9 Premier League games and a couple of Championship clashes. Here is where my money is going tonight:
Liverpool v Norwich – 7.45pm
Advised Bet: Liverpool to win to nil – 6/5 Paddy Power
Liverpool were embarrassed by Hull City at the weekend. Steve Bruce’s struggling Tigers beat Liverpool for the first time ever, and that is bound to smart on Brendan Rodgers. Luckily enough for The Reds they have an immediate chance to bounce back against a very poor Norwich side.
Chris Hughton’s Canaries have picked up a couple of wins lately (both at home to West Ham and Crystal Palace) but that doesn’t carry much weight with me. They were hopelessly exposed by Manchester City at Eastlands at the beginning of November (lost 7-0), and one of the first thing Brendan Rodgers is going to do is make sure his defence hold tight after Sunday’s debacle.
I have a distinct feeling that Norwich just won’t be able to score. Conversely, Liverpool will be intent on righting their wrongs of the weekend, and Luis Suarez could have a field day against a Norwich side that have the leakiest away defence in the Premier League (16 goals).
The 6/5 on offer for Liverpool to win as well as keep a clean sheet from Paddy Power is well worth a wager.
Fulham v Tottenham – 7.45pm
Advised Bet: Tottenham win – 7/10 Paddy Power
Hopeless, hopeless, hopeless. That’s all I can describe Fulham as. I put my faith in them to score a goal at Upton Park on Saturday, and I won’t forget that anytime soon. The big news is that Martin Jol is now out of the equation, but is that enough at this stage to get anything from Spurs. Not in my opinion.
Spurs looked a much better side than in recent weeks when they faced Manchester United last weekend (2-2) and I think they are going to build from that performance. Kyle Naughton and Aaron Lennon terrorised the Red Devils wings and I’m taking them to do exactly the same at Craven Cottage tonight.
Tottenham are missing the ineffective Christian Eriksen as well as Danny Rose and young striker Harry Kane, but that shouldn’t be too much of an inconvenience for AVB’s team. Rene Meulensteen will be taking control of Fulham for the first time, and I’m not expecting him to perform miracles just yet.
Both of tonight’s bets are priced best at Paddy Power. It’s well worth getting yourself an account there if you don’t already have one. They have a really good inplay section and are quite often very slow in catching up with inplay betting odds, meaning that great odds are always available. Click here to get started with Paddy Power
