Archived Premiership football betting tips (11th to 13th Feb 2006)

Sat 12:45 Wigan v Liverpool
  Liverpool face their third away game on the trot and with 2 defeats already they won't be high on confidence. Additionally, Gerrard won't be available until next week and Benitez's side lack the same drive when Gerrard is not there to inspire them on the pitch. Liverpool have in fact only won 4 of their 12 away games and the JJB is a fairly difficult place to go. Wigan lost every game when they played the top sides earlier in the season but they have learned from these defeats and don't know when they are beaten; a fine example of this was when they knocked Arsenal out of the Carling Cup at Highbury. Wigan have modest home form with 6 wins from 13 games but Liverpool's third consecutive fixture away from home could see them showing their softer side. Wigan to win narrowly.
Home Win 1-0
Sat 3:00 Arsenal v Bolton
  Arsenal's season has been one of disappointment and individual problems but just when we wrote them off at Birmingham they rallied themselves and won by a couple of goals. Campbell claims he is ready to return; the away fans are bound to barrack him and if his mental state is still fragile things may go from bad to worse. Arsenal have won 9 from 12 at home and with some of their injured defenders possibly returning they will start favourites. They need to win as many games as possible now to keep alive their hopes of Champions League football next season. Bolton could welcome some of their players back from the African Cup of Nations but they are sure to be tired and will not be guaranteed to start; the loss of Fadiga for the rest of the season was a big blow. Bolton have only 4 away wins and if Arsenal are on song they will be fortunate to get a point.
Home Win 2-1
  Aston Villa v Newcastle
  Villa showed last weekend just how much they have improved as the season has gone on. Boro may be poor at the moment but Villa put 4 goals past them at the Riverside and dominated the game in all departments; Luke Moore's hat trick was surely a sign of things to come especially since he is keepng the likes of Baros out of the side. Villa have only 3 wins at home but their opponents are a Newcastle side who are infamous poor travellers. After Souness' departure Roeder has got back to basics and picked the team sensibly with Parker and Emre in the middle of the park, N'Zogbia and Solano on the flanks and Ameobi up alongside Shearer, the new all-time record scorer at St James Park. Their record this season is 9 losses on the road and given Villa's current form they will find it tougher than last week's visit of Portsmouth where Bramble and Boumsong were not tested.
Home Win 2-0
  Everton v Blackburn
  Who can say what either of these two sides will do next? Everton had been on a good run recently and then got trounced in the FA Cup at Stamford Bridge whilst Blackburn also had a good run before being convincingly beaten at the Hawthorns. Everton have 3 home wins on the bounce and will need to bounce back after the Chelsea defeat. Blackburn's chances of a European place are slightly more realistic than Everton's as they are 4 points better off but they have lost 7 of their 13 matches on their travels. Expect Blackburn to put up a fight but Everton are likely to roll out 1-0 winners.
Home Win 1-0
  Fulham v West Brom
  Fulham have a home record worthy of a place in the top six with 8 wins from 12 games and having only dropped 2 points in their last 6. They haven't necessarily had the rub of the green on their travels but have usually given a good account of themselves, evidenced by their performance last weekend at Old Trafford. They host a West Brom side that have great home form but have only take 3 points once on the road, the surprise recent win at Wigan; they also convincingly beat an in-form Blackburn side at the Hawthorns last weekend. Fulham's home form should carry them to victory in what should be a good game.
Home Win 2-1
  Middlesbrough v Chelsea
  The abysmal Boro continue to drift ever closer to the relegation places and McLaren's job looks ever under threat. With only 1 win since Boxing Day in the Premiership (at Sunderland) and only a narrow victory at home in the FA Cup to Coventry the omens do not look good for an overpaid collection of players resting on their laurels. Earlier in the season Boro managed to beat both Arsenal and United at home but they now have to entertain a Chelsea side who need no introductions. The current Premiership champions have only lost one of their away fixtures and now have Essien back from the African Cup of Nations. This looks like being a mismatch if ever there was one.
Away Win 0-2
Sat 5:15 Portsmouth v Man Utd
  Portsmouth fans will have been gutted with the news that Stefanovic is to miss the rest of the season with an ankle injury. The team is definitely struggling amongst the relegation places and 7 points is a lot of ground to make up if they are to catch Boro. Recently they have been losing away from home but Harry will be hoping that it is their home form that can save them; the fact is their home form is poor as well with only 2 wins and while the new faces at Fratton Park are still getting used to playing together, a visit from United is a recipe for disaster. United have strong away form with 7 wins from 13 games but it remains to be seen whether Ferguson's new defensive signings will play after poor performances in the very few games they've already played. Their midfield is also not up to par with injuries to key individuals but Giggs could possibly return. Portsmouth just haven't been at the races of late and this shifts the game in United's favour.
Away Win 0-2
Sun 1:30 Sunderland v Tottenham
  Sunderland have accepted their fate and the Championship beckons but the test for McCarthy will be whether or not they can be saved the embaressment of beating their own lowest points record of 19. With no wins and only 3 points from their 13 home games the odds on them getting anything against a confident Spurs side are going to be fairly high. Spurs do sometimes struggle against sides that put up a bit of a fight and if Sunderland turn up they stand a chance. Spurs have lost their last 2 away games but the ranting Mido could return, although the partnership of Defoe and Keane worked against Charlton. They will be missing the experience of Davids but Lennon could return after a dead leg. Spurs should win but this wouldn't be the first time that Spurs have fallen to the weaker sides; remember Leicester and Grimsby.
Away Win 1-2
Sun 4:00 Man City v Charlton
  Only 1 point and 1 place separate these two in mid-table obscurity but both will be hoping for a late surge into Europe. Bearing in mind Charlton's great start to the season their form since just before Christmas has been disappointing, but in comparison Pearce has done better with City as he was inexperienced when he took over but his passion has inspired some great City displays. City are far more confident at home havng only lost 4 games and new life has been breathed into the careers of Cole and Vassell; an intelligent partnership that is working well. Charlton have only taken 1 point from their last 6 away games and this looks like City can wrap up the three points.
Home Win 2-1
Mon 8:00 West Ham v Birmingham
  After the Hammers put in a fantastic winning performance at Highbury they did well not to slip at home to bottom placed Sunderland as so often can be the case. Teddy came off the bench to inspire them to a good win with new signing Dean Ashton getting a debut goal. West Ham have won half of their home games including the last two and should be fancied to beat a Birmingham side who failed to take advantage against a troubled Arsenal side last weekend. The Blues still occupy one of the relegation spots and are 5 points adrift of nearest placed Middlesbrough; only 2 away wins all season doesn't leave the average punter thinking that they'll get anything at Upton Park. West Ham to take all the points.
Home Win 2-0
