Friday 14 January

Brighton 21/20
Draw 9/4
Crystal Palace 28/10

A classic Premier League football match to get the weekend underway! Brighton was able to fight through a spirited West Brom in the FA Cup, whilst Palace whistled past Millwall. Brighton seems to be getting into a stride again and I think this will be a difficult game for the visiting Eagles.

I think given Brighton come into the game with some sort of rhythm, as well as a fully fit squad just gives them the edge. But for the multiples, a simple over 2.5 goals at 12/10 should be good enough.

Saturday 15 January

Norwich 11/4
Draw 49/20
Everton 1/1

I keep eyeing the even money price available on Everton with some hesitation…and I shouldn’t be, right? Norwich have become the punters best friend; you take them to lose without scoring a goal (in the Premier League) and you walk away smiling at your deserved profit.

My only concern is that Everton have been terribly inconsistent, and if the reports out of Goodison are to be believed – that is not a happy camp now! Nevertheless, even money available for just a straight win should be the play. Everton are the better team and should at worst, just edge it.

Wolves 11/10
Draw 9/4
Southampton 49/20

At the risk of sounding like a social media scrooge, the post-match interview delivered by Bruno Lage was (awfully – only given they had just beaten United –) impressive. His tactical prowess and ability were never questioned, but they were obviously incredibly understated.

If this game was at St. Mary’s, I think Southampton would have a larger impact. Playing at Molineux Stadium though, Wolves win. For the first time in 2022: “Back the Pack”.

Newcastle United 21/20
Draw 26/10
Watford 24/10

Newcastle is reportedly desperately trying to secure a striker before they play in this fixture, and you can understand why. They are without a win in their last four league fixtures and were dumped out of the FA Cup at the hands of Cambridge United.

The richest team in the league have been battered since they earned a victory over Burnley…and this might just be the fixture they turn it all around. Watford are struggling for form themselves, winless from their last seven games – surely something has got to give?

I reckon we go both teams to score and be done with it…get on at 13/20.

Burnley 39/20
Draw 24/10
Leicester City 27/20

I’m not sure if I’m missing something here, but 27/20 about the away win seems almost too good to be true! I know Leicester are without Wilfred Ndidi, Kelechi Iheanacho, Daniel Amartey and Papy Mendy as they celebrate their countries participation at AFCON…but this is a struggling Burnley team they are playing.

I can’t remember the last time Burnley won a game in the league, and they haven’t kept a clean sheet since early December against West Ham. If the Foxes take the game to their hosts at Turf Moor, I think they win. Get on at away victory.

Aston Villa 21/10
Draw 49/20
Manchester United 5/4

This is a tricky game to call. Watching the game between these two on Monday evening, United were incredibly flat and almost docile, and Villa lacked a bit of quality and clinical finishing in the final third. Either side could switch that around and get a result!

Ralf Rangnick has realized the depth of issues present at Manchester United, and I’m not sure he’s the guy to turn it around immediately. Big name players at United (think Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes) were untouchable last season…they look lost in this campaign.

I think this could be a tasty, but incredibly frustrating, draw. Get on at 49/20.

Sunday 16 January

West Ham United
Draw 31/10
Leeds United 37/10

West Ham have been immense this season. Yes, they had a little wobble in December, but they have recovered well and look to be flying now. They played Leeds in the FA Cup and duly dispatched them…I don’t see a turnaround in fortune here.

I’m all over West Ham at 13/20.

Liverpool 7/20
Draw 4/1
Brentford 13/2

So here we go, a Liverpool side without Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Naby Keita in the Premier League. Fingers crossed there aren’t any further false positive tests at Anfield and the game goes ahead.

Brentford will go to Anfield and show Liverpool a sort of Pseudo-respect. One that is completely aware of the pedigree of the club they are facing, but one that will simultaneously lack any sort of sitting back and just succumbing to their hosts. The issue is this will suit Liverpool and inevitably be Brentford’s undoing.

Liverpool is a proper football club and are probably even more dangerous when they play a side happy to concede space. Liverpool win and both teams score is the way I see it. Get on at 2/1.

TREBLE @ 66/10
Brighton vs Palace: Over 2.5 Goals 12/10
Wolves Win 11/10
West Ham Win 13/20
