Archived Premiership football betting tips (1st to 4th Apr 2006)

Sat 12:45 Birmingham v Chelsea
  Chelsea may have lost 2 of their last 3 away games but the thought of them stumbling once again at St Andrews seems rather unlikely. Birmingham have only won 4 home games and though their Premiership future is not quite yet doomed and they remain within spitting distance of West Brom, the Champions are not the team they would have wanted to face. After their 7 goal thrashing by Liverpool Birmingham went to Old Trafford and lost by 3 goals; conceding so early against United will not have inspired confidence. Chelsea should get back on the winning trail with a comfortable win.
Away Win 0-2
Sat 3:00 Arsenal v Aston Villa
  Arsenal are fresh from a convincing win over Juventus in the Champions League and look favourites to progress to the semi-finals. They still have their work cut out in grabbing the last Champions League place as Blackburn and Spurs will do their best respectively to make that fourth spot theirs. Arsenal have 11 victories from 15 home games and though Villa have not played too badly away from home, they have lacked that cutting edge and a clinical finish in front of goal.The good news for Villa is that both Mellberg and Baros have been passed fit to play but they are unlikely to upset a young Arsenal side who are currently enjoying their football.
Home Win 2-0
  Bolton v Man Utd
  Bolton have only lost once at home this season conceding only 7 goals in 14 games. In the past they have usually given United a good run for their money and have usually unnerved the United defence. United have Ruud van Nistelrooy back in the starting lineup and he celebrated his first start for some time with the only goal of the game against West Ham. United have won their last 3 on the road but have drawn 3 and lost 3 of their 16 away games this season. As long as Bolton don't start in the apathetic fashion that they did against Boro last weekend they should be capable of getting a point.
Draw 1-1
  Everton v Sunderland
  Everton have fantastic current home form having won their last 6 successive home games. If anything, this game is more about Sunderland and their return to the Championship; if Sunderland lose and West Brom manage to beat Liverpool (an unlikely scenario) then Sunderland are officially relegated. This is probably not news to many as those at the Stadium of Light probably accepted their fate weeks ago. Sometimes being relegated early allows the players to play with a sense of freedom as what's done is done but even so, it remains difficult to back Sunderland for any sort of result. Everton should win by a couple.
Home Win 2-0
  Fulham v Portsmouth
  Fulham now look like they could be safe from relegation and despite the fact that they have no away win to date they do have 10 victories from 15 home games. Portsmouth have recently turned things around with 2 great victories; one at home to Man City and the other away at West Ham. They do have the potential to escape relegation if they play with the same freedom as they did at Upton Park but they have lost 12 of 16 games on the road and Harry still has a big task on his hands. Portsmouth do have the potential to cause an upset at Craven Cottage but statistically it looks like another home win for Fulham. Remember their last home win was over Chelsea inflicting only Chelsea's third defeat of the season.
Home Win 2-1
  Newcastle v Tottenham
  Newcastle's home form hasn't been great this season with only 7 wins; a problem for them has been the injuries they've had and as soon as they get players back from the treatment room someone else gets a knock. Scott Parker was diagnosed with glandular fever this week and looks to be out for the rest of the season. Shearer only has a handful of games left now before his self-imposed retirement and will want to win his remaining games, especially those at St James Park but will they have enough against a Spurs side that have showed a degree more resilience this season than in previous campaigns. Jol's substitution gamble paid off against West Brom when they came back in the second half after being a goal down. Mido should start alongside Keane as without him they miss the aerial presence and don't play enough to feet to compensate. Jermain Jenas returns to St James Park and Spurs will be doing their utmost to retain fourth place; they have only won 5 away games this season but could spring a surprise at Newcastle.
Away Win 1-2
Sat 5:15 West Brom v Liverpool
  The Baggies started well at White Hart Lane last Monday night but they eventually crumbled in the dying minutes; their keeper had been wasting time ever since they scored and paid the final price by gifting Spurs the winner. Their home form however has been better than most of the sides around them with 6 wins but they face a Liverpool side who have rediscovered their goal scoring touch and are looking potent away from home as well as at Anfield. Liverpool have only won 2 of their last 6 away but their defence is usually fairly sound and they could take the points. West Brom have a long way to go before hey can start thinking about Premiership safety.
Away Win 0-1
Sun 3:00 Man City v Middlesbrough
  This fixture pitches together 2 sides that have had inconsistent Premiership seasons. Is the initial Pearce factor wearing off at City or is it just that they have injuries to key players; their away form has been dismal and this seems to be spreading to Eastlands. Boro may still be in the UEFA and FA Cups but domestically they have been poor spending most of the season perched a couple of places above the relegation spots. Boro have been performing better lately now that they have key players like Downing back from injury and strikers Viduka, Hasselbaink and Yakubu back in form. This game's all about personnel and City are the ones struggling with injuries; Boro should take all 3 points.
Away Win 1-2
Sun 4:00 West Ham v Charlton
  The Hammers are generally happy at Upton Park with some good performances behind them and the prospect of European football a realistic possibility. 7 wins from 15 home games is by no means a fantastic record but they have won 3 in the last 5. Their opponents, Charlton, have not won away from the Valley since October and although this is a local derby, the chances of them nicking the win are not great. Their 5 away wins came early in the season and another for the rest of the season looks unlikely. West Ham to take add another 3 points to their tally.
Home Win 2-1
Mon 8:00 Blackburn v Wigan
  Blackburn have been flying at home of late having taken 16 points from a possible 18. They remain in the chase for the final Champions League place along with Spurs and Arsenal and should be guaranteed European football of some sort next season. Blackburn have 11 victories from 15 home games and face a Wigan side who have also had their fair share of success this season; currently 8th in the Premiership and losing finalists to United in the Carling Cup has been a good first season in the top flight. Wigan actually have a better away record than at the JJB with 8 wins from 15 games and have only lost once in their last 6 away games. The crux of this prediction lies with Blackburn wo can play some scintillating football and if they play to their potential can beat anyone.
Home Win 2-1
Tues 7:45 Birmingham v Bolton
  For Birmingham much depends on Saturday's game against Chelsea; if they can get any sort of result it could turn their season around and they could escape relegation but realistically Saturday will probably yield nothing for them and this game against Bolton will be even harder. Bolton host United on Saturday and if they win they could travel to St Andrews and give Birmingham a spanking where as if they lose to United they shouldn't be too demotivated as they've been up against a good side. Bolton will definitely start favourites and Birmingham will find it difficult not to be intimidated in coming to terms with their physical style. Bolton have only 4 away wins to date but their are some poor sides in the Premiership and one of them is Birmingham; Bolton should notch another away win.
Away Win 0-2
