Worth a flutter, small stake, be prudent and stick to matches where you can spot the value.
Below were the predicted outcomes for the midweek fixtures Tues 14th to Wed 15th February 2006.
|Tues 8:00||Liverpool v Arsenal|
|This fixture is a must win for both sides; if Liverpool can win they will close the gap on United and if Arsenal can take the 3 points then they will get closer to Spurs and that last Champions League place. This is Liverpool's first home game in 4 matches and they will welcome the Anfield atmosphere after only 1 win from those 3 away games. They have only dropped 7 points at home all season and will start favourites against an Arsenal side who have performed poorly on the road. The Gunners have more than their fair share of injuries and Reyes can now be added to that list after the draw at home to Bolton. Liverpool may not be in prolific goal scoring form but they do not concede many whilst Arsenal overplay without the end product and with only 3 away wins they need to be more clinical. Tight but Liverpool to edge it.|
|Home Win 1-0|
|Wed 8:00||Blackburn v Sunderland|
|Sunderland may be down and out, although not mathematically, but they showed against Spurs that they haven't given up the fight. They may not have the most talented squad in the Premiership but if the opposition approach the game too confidently they could well pay the price. They have taken only 6 points (2 wins) on their travels this season and will once again be up against it at Ewood Park. Blackburn have been out of sorts of late and couldn't make their possession count in the second half against 10 man Everton, finally losing the game 1-0; this doesn't tell the whole story as Everton had several goals chalked off by the referee for one thing or another. Rovers have relatively good home form though with only 2 losses this campaign so once again it makes sense to bet against Sunderland.|
|Home Win 2-0/td>|
