Unfortunately we failed to continue our successful
winning row this Christmas, although I knew it would
be tough ''thanks'' to the unpredictabillity of English
Premier League. Don't get me wrong, the ''favourites'' are decent and Match Odds betting is quite reliable, but in terms of Value Betting and Over Under goals, this is where it
becomes complicated and difficult to predict scores.
Middlesbrough v Leicester What a game is coming up! The hosts are doing just fine so far and keeping the distance from the relegation zone. A few days ago, they gave a good
''scare'' to Mourinho's team which snapped a 2-1 victory in the end after seeing
Middlesbrough taking the lead. If the hosts were more effective and score more frequently,
they would be in a much higher place one the lederboard. Defensively, they do really good
considering their current position.
The Foxes in the other hand, managed a narrow and furstrating win against West Ham and surprinsignly for me, they did not concede a goal. Could that mean the beginning of
something good? The hosts are a 'tough nut' to crack at home and Foxes have not been
''inspiring'' in away games. Personally, I find it the most difficult game to predict in terms of
match odds and in terms of Under/Over, the bookies predict really few goals. I will not
include it in any of my betting slips today except a single bet in Any Other Draw Market @
Betfair.com where the Odds are nearly 999/1! I find not good value in Under 2.5 Goals but neither I want to risk it in Over 2.5. If it makes sense to you, I want to ''invest'' a small
amount in high odds and if in the likely event it start rainning goals in the first half, then
might cashout something good!
Everton v Southampton For many is considered 'the draw of the day'' although I do not
share the sentiment. Everton failed in a way to impress in last game against a fighting Hull
and a draw was not a bad result in the end. The Saints are by far in worse current form
and despite the unavailable players in today's game, they have not won a single away
game against Everton since 2003 (5 Losses and 2 draws). My money are on Everton and
the 2.32 price in Betfair is just awesome.
Man City v Burnley Ok, we all know which team is the favourite here but.... Where is the
value? Match Odds? Nope! Over/Under? Nay! Match Odds and Over 2.5? Negative!
Burnley is in a good form and they will not go down without a fight. Besides, they have
scored in all away games against Man City so far and managed to upset them a few times
as well. Both teams to score is my tip and the price 2.32 at Betfair is just delicious.
Sunderland v Liverpool The Black Cats' long term injured players in defence and Middle
field, cost them a lot of defeats this year and it is a fact. Today against Liverpool, more
than ever they have to defend in hope to avoid ''humiliation'' or.... to upset the punters world
with an unexpected result. Against the Odds, Under 2.5 goals is my tip.
West Brom v Hull The price for the hosts to win has drift so much in Exchange from 1.80
to 1.97 at the moment (09:47am UK time) and I am not sure why. WBA is a decent side
and the recent games at home show us that they show 'no mercy' to Hull teams ''alike''.
Nevertheless, Hull finds the way to the net and taking everything into acount, I suggest
Both teams to score.
West ham v ManU Both teams' lines up for today's game remain a big puzzle. Although I
initially wanted to back ManU to win Halftime/Fulltime, I will make my mind up just
before the kick off and I will tweet it.
You can bet your accumulators with the ''insurance'' of Betfair's Edge and the powered
prices of Betting Exchange!
Best of Luck!
