Archived Premier League football betting tips (29th Nov to 1st Dec 2008)

Sat 3:00 Aston Villa v Fulham
  A draw at home to United and Arsenal losing away at Eastlands saw Villa break into the top four as they mount a realistic challenge for Champions League football next season. The United result in addition to the away victory at the Emirates underlines their credentials as challengers to the top four. Though Carew is fit again, O'Neill may still prefer to start with Agbonlahor alone up front after the tactic proved successful in recent matches. Villa have lost just the once at home this season and host a Fulham side yet to take 3 points on the road. However, Hodgson has cause for optimism after his side nicked a point at Anfield last weekend and possibly should have taken all 3 points were it not for a couple of wasted opportunities by Andy Johnson. Despite Fulham's improvement, Villa would be mad not to make the most of their current position and should go all out for maximum points.
Home Win 1-0
  Middlesbrough v Newcastle
  After 5 successive games without defeat, you'd be right to think Boro were on a roll but a convincing defeat at home to Bolton is another step backwards for Southgate's side. They were poor defensively against the Trotters and Alves's lack of form at the other end of the pitch (just 3 goals this season) is becoming a cause for concern. They face derby rivals, Newcastle, who are yet to win on the road but managed a respectable point at Stamford Bridge last weekend; something to do with the negative tactics. Rumour has it that the injured Viduka has recovered quicker than expected and could feature at some point. Expect Kinnear to set his stall out the same at the Riverside hoping to nick something from the game.
Draw 1-1
  Stoke v Hull
  Hull have bounced back from a run of 3 successive defeats with 2 draws; a point apiece at home to City and away at Pompey. 39 year old Dean Windass is making a bid for a place in the side after coming on at Portsmouth and snatching a late equaliser only for the dubious goals panel to give it to Noe Pamarot as an own goal. The Tigers are allegedly making plans fo deal with Rory Delap's long throws; a Stoke speciality that has resulted in several goals this season. On form the Potters look favourites after notching their 4th successive home victory last weekend against bottom placed West Brom; that successful run includes taking maximum points from the Gunners. However, regardless of form, Hull have faced stiff opposition in November and are still sixth in the table with a clear 3 points between them and next placed Everton; they'll be looking for victory and might just edge it.
Away Win 0-1
  Sunderland v Bolton
  Sunderland have lost 5 of their last 6 games in all competitions as Roy Keane's side float just above the relegation places. Excepting the 5-0 hammering at Stamford Brige, the Mackems haven't been outclassed by any of their opponents and Keane feels that Sunderland's fortunes will change as soon as strike partners Kenwynne Jones and Djibril Cisse get it together. They host a Bolton side enjoying something of a revival after winning 3 of their last 4 including victories at the KC Stadium and the Riverside. The 2 big positives for Megson against Boro were that they scored 3 goals and new striker, Elmander, finally got his second of the season. The big question here is will Bolton continue their run of form or will Sunderland come good and I'm swaying towards the latter.
Home Win 2-1
  Wigan v West Brom
  Wigan climbed out of the drop zone last weekend thanks to Henri Camara's first Premier league goal for 2 years. That was only their second home victory of the season but performances have been better than results neccesarily suggest despite Bruce feeling the Everton victory was one of their worst home performances of the season. Camara could well find himself in the starting eleven given that Heskey and Zaki are both touch and go for the weekend. Bottom side, West Brom, are the visitors to the JJB after going down to a single goal at the Britannia. The Baggies have taken just 4 points from 7 away fixtures (the last four ending in defeat) and the reality of life in the Premier league is proving tough. However, the Latics will be looking for successive Premier league victories for the first time this season.
Home Win 1-0
Sun 1:30 Man City v Man Utd
  United's away form appears to be stuttering this season. They don't usually enjoy the best of starts but only 2 victories and 7 goals scored in 7 away fixtures will have Ferguson a little concerned. The derby game at City is always a big event but the profile has been raised given City's massive cash injection and United will want to prove themselves top dogs but they've dropped points in all their big away games; defeats at Liverpool and Arsenal plus draws at Chelsea, Everton and Villa. With City now billed as close rivals, financially as well as in football terms, much is at stake. Home form for Mark Hughes's side has been inconsistent but the players will be confident after seeing off Arsenal to the tune of 3 goals without reply. City's players know they have to perform given that the club's coffers are overflowing and the January transfer window is little over a month away. I sense an upset in Manchester this weekend.
Home Win 2-1
Sun 3:00 Portsmouth v Blackburn
  Blackburn find themselves in the bottom three after a return of only 3 points from their last 8 games. Rovers haven't neccesarily been playing badly but Paul Ince is finding that the line between success and failure is very fine at this level. Olsson is suspended for this encounter after being undone by the trickery of Aaron Lennon last weekend. Ince finds himself up against an old sparring partner in Tony Adams, also new to the Premier league management game. Since their defeat at the JJB, Pompey are now undefeated in 3 games. Adams will be looking for his first win at Fratton Park and will be boosted by the news that striker, Defoe, could be fit to play after recovering from a calf injury sustained playing for England against Germany.
Home Win 2-1
  Tottenham v Everton
  Three successive home wins for Spurs under Harry Redknapp and some notable scalps to mention including 2 victories over Liverpool, a draw at the Emirates and victory at Eastlands. Spurs are gradually climbing the table but from 7th downwards it's so congested that dropping back into the bottom three is a constant threat. Aaron Lennon proved he's getting back to his best in the victory over Blackburn and defenders will be worried playing against him, not wanting to suffer the same fate as Blackburn's Olsson. The visitors to White Hart Lane are an Everton side that suffered only their second defeat on the road at the JJB last weekend. Moyes was disappointed that the Toffees failed to create chances and didn't really put the Latics under any real pressure. Everton are looking for consistency as they aim for the top six but they're likely to run into the buffers at the Lane.
Home Win 2-1
Sun 4:00 Chelsea v Arsenal
  Undoubtedly the big fixture of the weekend and the one that'll have all eyes on it. Not only is it a clash between two of the big four sides but the return of the controversial William Gallas to Stamford Bridge is likely to take centre stage. Stripped of the Arsenal captaincy but still deemed integral to their defence, it's a hotbed of a fixture to put him into given the way he left his career at Chelsea. Wenger claims that the win over Kiev and entry to the Champions League knockout stage has steadied the ship but successive defeats in the league at home to Villa and away at Eastlands has seen them drop out of the top four. Their opponents, Chelsea, still top the table although their home form has not been at its best this season with only 2 wins from their last 6 home fixtures. Anelka continues alone up front given Drogba's suspension with Alex, Belletti and Carvalho possibly available for selection. Expect controversy but the game will be open enough for the Blues to snatch victory.
Home Win 1-0
Mon 8:00 Liverpool v West Ham
  Liverpool could only manage a goalless draw at home to Fulham last weekend and Jimmy Bullard didn't rate their chances against Chelsea in the title race. However, Fulham were playing a Liverpool side without Steven Gerrard and the result shows how key the England midfielder is to Benitez's side. The skipper was once again the hero in the midweek victory over Marseille grabbing the only goal of the game. Only Liverpool and United remain undefeated at home this season and with Chelsea at home to Arsenal, the Reds know that this is a golden opportunity to return to the top of the table. They host a West Ham side that registered their first win in eight games at Sunderland last weekend. Though the winning goal was fortunate, it was the first time the Hammers had kept successive clean sheets and Matthew Upson was outstanding. That said, Liverpool are a more difficult proposition than Sunderland and the home side should have enough.
Home Win 1-0
