Premier League Betting Predictions 26-27 November
Let’s now have a look at the best matches for this weekends Premier League games on 26th and 27th November 2011, where Liverpool vs Man City is a game not to miss!
Stoke City v Blackburn Rovers 12.45 Live on Skysports HD2
Rovers boss Steve Kean received a boost in midweek with confirmation of a revision to his contract, widely assumed to be an increase in pay as the length of the contract remains unchanged. A penalty deep into stoppage time spared Blackburn’s blushes at Wigan last weekend and they will be looking to put the pressure on Stoke who are going through a mini-crisis of their own. William Hill’s offer of 11-4 the draw looks worth taking. Both teams are struggling defensively so a high-scoring draw might be worth a small investment. 2-2 is 16-1 and 3-3 is available at 66-1 for anyone hoping for a goalfest.
Manchester United v Newcastle United 3.00 Live on Setanta Ireland
Newcastle’s unbeaten run finally came to an end at Manchester City last weekend and now they visit Old Trafford where the hosts have won all bar one of their games this season. United have responded well to their crushing defeat against City and will be looking to keep the pressure on their local rivals with another win here. The bookmakers are not offering much in the way of value on a United win so it might be worth investing in United to find their scoring touch. A 4-0 home win can be backed at 18-1 and a 5-0 scoreline is a 33-1 shot. Nani is best priced at 13-2 to open the scoring.
Arsenal v Fulham 5.30 Live on ESPN
Arsenal maintained their strong run of form by becoming the first English side to qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League on Wednesday. Skipper Van Persie did this column a favour by opening the scoring (recommended here at 4-1) and is on top form going into this London derby. His odds have contracted on breaking the deadlock so it may pay to look elsewhere and Theo Walcott is tempting at 8-1. Arsenal can be backed at 100-30 to win by a 2 goal margin.
Also; Bolton Wanderers v Everton 3.00, Chelsea v Wolverhampton Wanderers 3.00, Norwich City v Queens Park Rangers 3.00, Sunderland v Wigan Athletic 3.00, West Bromwich Albion v Tottenham Hotspur 3.00
Sunday 27th November
Swansea City v Aston Villa 1.30 Live on Skysports HD1
Swansea put up a brave fight when going down by a single goal to Manchester United last weekend and could provide Villa, comprehensively beaten at Spurs on Monday night, with a stern test. That defeat was their first at home this season whereas Villa are yet to record a victory on their travels. A draw looks likely here at odds of 5-2 with a 1-1 scoreline freely available at 6-1.
Liverpool v Manchester City 4.00 Live on Skysports HD1
This could be the pick of the weekend’s fixtures with Liverpool the latest team set to test Manchester City’s championship credentials. Liverpool cashed in on Chelsea’s recent slump on Sunday to haul themselves up to the edge of the title race while City brushed aside Newcastle to maintain their five-point lead at the top. A midweek setback in Europe should not have jolted their confidence too much and it seems safe to expect another strong showing. Odds of 6-4 offered by PaddyPower for a City win look attractive with Mario Balotelli worth supporting at odds of 13-2 to open the scoring.
