Archived Premier League football betting tips (24th to 25th Apr 2010)

Sat 12:45 Man Utd v Tottenham
  After Chelsea's slip-up last weekend at White Hart Lane, United lie just a point behind the Blues and face their title rivals victors at Old Trafford in the lunchtime kick-off. United will be looking to go top, if only for a couple of hours, but must know it won't be easy against a Spurs side that've just recorded successive victories over London rivals Arsenal and Chelsea. However, Spurs haven't had much success at the Theatre of Dreams in recent seasons with key decisions often going against them. Palacios returns from suspension whilst Corluka and Lennon could be fit enough to make the bench. Additionally, King may start after missing the Chelsea game; two games on the trot being too much for the McGrath throwback. United lost their last home game (against Chelsea) but Scholes' goal in the last minute at Eastlands shows that they can never be written off. Rooney's fitness may dictate whether Berbatov plays against his old club whilst Carrick may also start on the bench. United have won fourteen of seventeen Premier league games at Old Trafford this season and they're unlikely to falter with so much at stake. A gritty encounter but United to take the points.
Home Win 2-1
Sat 3:00 Bolton v Portsmouth
  Not only is everything falling apart at Fratton Park in terms of financial stability with the extent of their debts finally unveiled, but injuries have hit them hard with them not even able to name a full bench for the last two games. That said, the fringe players haven't disappointed and the incentive of a Cup final place has played its part. Their Championship fate was sealed some time ago but they managed a draw at Wigan and a win at Turf Moor in their last four Premier league away fixtures. They travel to the Reebok where Bolton have lost their last two home games (against Villa and United) but picked up three points last weekend at Stoke. Coyle is gradually turning things around at the Reebok and recent performances have been good whilst not always getting the right result. Their safety is still not guaranteed but a win against Pompey will keep them playing Premier league football for another season.
Home Win 2-0
  Hull v Sunderland
  Hull's home defeat to Villa was a great result for all three sides in claret and blue but it makes this game against Sunderland a 'must win' affair. The Tigers are still three points short of safety but their goal difference is the worst in the division and as the remaining fixtures get fewer, that could be the factor to push them down. In fact, if West Ham beat Wigan and Hull lose this, their third successive home defeat, then they'll be playing Championship football next season. To make matters worse, Vennegoor of Hesselink is unlikely to be available after a clash of heads with Richard Dunne. Silly mistakes cost Hull against Villa but they have the chance to put things right against a Sunderland side that've only won once on the road this season. The Mackems are safe but have drawn at both Villa and Portsmouth since mid-Feb. This is a tough one to call but Hull may be too anxious to get in front and that could play into Sunderland's hands.
Away Win 0-1
  West Ham v Wigan
  Hull eased the pressure on West Ham by failing to beat Villa at the KC Stadium during the week. A win for the Hammers against Wigan will see them safe if Hull lose and Burnley fail to win this weekend. The good news for Zola is that Parker is available after suspension; the combative midfielder has been a rare ray of sunshine this season and will be vital for these last few games. They've taken four points from their last three fixtures and will fancy themselves against a Wigan side also a couple of points away from guaranteed safety. The Latics have taken just a single point from their last six Premier league away fixtures although they've very few injury concerns and that late victory over Arsenal is bound to have boosted morale. West Ham have to go for broke knowing that victory could consign Hull and Burnley to the drop.
Home Win 2-1
  Wolverhampton v Blackburn
  Blackburn are safe thanks to a gritty run of five games unbeaten including draws at Ewood Park against both Chelsea and United. A late Tim Cahill strike was enough to end their unbeaten sequence but Rovers have definitely improved over recent weeks. Their away form in general hasn't been great this season but four points from their last two fixtures will give them confidence at Molineux. However, Wolves are still a win shy of staying in the top flight. It's been Wolves' recent form that has carried them towards safety; they've taken points from six of their last seven games, the exception being an injury-time single goal defeat at the Emirates. Wolves are likely to be the stronger side in front of their fans and a single goal should be enough to see them register a win in what will be seen as a successful season for Mick McCarthy.
Home Win 1-0
Sat 5:30 Arsenal v Man City
  Arsenal's injuries have had a significant impact on their season; RVP's absence for much of it left them without a cutting edge in the big games and more recently they've suffered with up to eight first team players out. Defeats at Spurs and Wigan have left their title dream in tatters and speculation has already started regarding summer acquisitions and departures. The Gunners have dropped points in just three games at the Emirates this season but they face a tough fixture against City and three ex-players; namely Adebayor, Toure and Vieira. In the chase for fourth, City could be further incentivised if Spurs fail to get anything at Old Trafford at lunchtime as a win would see City rise that all important place. For much of the current campaign, City have failed miserably on the road but they've now put together a run of five games without defeat and should have enough to challenge the Gunners. A fully-fit Arsenal should beat City but they might just have to settle for a draw this time.
Draw 1-1
Sun 12:00 Aston Villa v Birmingham
  A local derby is not what Villa would've wanted with the possibility of fourth spot still an outside chance. They'll be hoping that Spurs and City lose at Old Trafford and the Emirates respectively in their bid to make up three points having played a game more. O'Neill knows that all they can do is keep playing to their potential and hope other results fall their way. Whilst Birmingham can be proud of their achievements in making it as high as ninth, their away form has faltered in recent weeks with a hammering at Eastlands and defeats at Ewood Park and the Stadium of Light. Villa have shown a tendency to draw games at Villa Park that they really should've won but if they get in front I can't see them relinquishing a lead with Champions League football still a possibility.
Home Win 2-1
Sun 3:00 Burnley v Liverpool
  This could be the surprise package of the weekend. Liverpool haven't won on the road in the Premier league since they beat Villa just before the turn of the year. Their hopes of Champions league football are realistically dead and buried and the circuitous route taken to Madrid is bound to have a knock-on effect come the weekend. That coupled with the absence of Torres plays into Burnley's hands but only if the Clarets have the appetite to take advantage. Nothing short of a win will be good enough for Burnley who are four points adrift of safety and recent results would seem to indicate that this is beyond them, but they showed their hunger at Hull two weeks ago and early season results at Turf Moor proved that they can beat anyone on home soil. Going for a home result here is really sticking my neck out but a desperate Burnley side might just have enough against a tired Liverpool that pose no great threat on the road.
Home Win 1-0
  Everton v Fulham
  Another of our sides featuring in Europe this week have had an arduous journey. Fulham's trip to Hamburg wasn't without its hold-ups and reports that the Cottagers had to stretch on the hard shoulder won't have pleased Hodgson but proved amusing to the rest of us. Regardless of the tiredness factor, Fulham's away form isn't great anyway and they've not recorded a Premier league away win since beating Portsmouth on the opening day. Now that the Cottagers are safe, the accent will be firmly on their European campaign. They travel to Goodison where Everton are mounting a late surge for a Europa league place but they're five points behind Liverpool with just three games to play. However, the Toffees recent form has been great with just two points dropped out of the last possible 24 at home. One thing you won't see is David Moyes letting his side coast the rest of the season and this should be a comfortable home win.
Home Win 2-0
Sun 4:00 Chelsea v Stoke
  After Chelsea's demoralising trip to White Hart Lane, Ancelotti had to remind his players that the title is still in their own hands despite United trailing them by a single point. Not only did the Blues lose but injuries and suspensions will mean some changes for the games against Stoke. Terry is suspended after being dismissed for two yellows whilst both Drogba and Mikel are rated doubtful after sustaining injuries in that encounter. However, the table doesn't lie and Chelsea have dropped just five points at home all season. They host a Stoke side that are now comfortable in mid-table but are eyeing an upset at Stamford Bridge given the calibre of Chelsea players missing. Another factor in the Potters' favour is their Premier league away form; they're undefeated in their last six on the road although they were beaten 2-0 by Chelsea in the FA Cup quarter-final at the Bridge. Stoke will obviously give themselves a chance but given Chelsea's strength in depth, the outcome should be a matter of course.
Home Win 2-1
