Premier league football betting tips are given one of the following three ratings:
Banker, large stake, predicted outcome is more than likely.
Likely outcome, medium stake, worth a gamble.
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 22nd to Wed 23rd February 2010.
|Tues 8:00||Blackpool v Tottenham|
|Blackpool did manage to put an end to a run of five successive defeats when they drew at home to Villa over a week ago but their league position remains precarious. Hovering just two places and two points above the drop zone, their home form is still the worst in the Premier League with twelve points from twelve games. They're unlikely to abandon their attacking brand of football but they should be wary of a Spurs side that've performed surprisingly well on the road this season. Spurs are currently on a four game victory roll including wins at Blackburn, Sunderland and AC Milan. Modric and Van der Vaart are back but Bale's back problem is likely to keep him out whilst Corluka makes way for Hutton after Flamini's horror tackle in Milan. A win for Spurs would see them move into third, above City, whilst increasing the gap over Chelsea. Blackpool are obviously incentivised by the threat of relegation but Spurs know victory for them would really boost confidence as the business end of the season approaches.|
|Away Win 1-2|
|Wed 7:45||Arsenal v Stoke|
|Leyton Orient's late equaliser in the FA Cup may have you thinking that Arsenal are suffering another blip but Wenger made ten changes to the side that beat Barcelona last week in the Champions League. Not surprising given their Carling Cup date at Wembley next Sunday and their Champions League second leg in the Nou Camp a couple of days later. Given the importance of the Premier League, Wenger's bound to reinstate the familiar faces as they look to extend their unbeaten home run to twelve games in all competitions; Spurs were the last away side to secure victory at the Emirates back in November. The Gunners host a Stoke side going steady in mid-table but their away form isn't good having suffered four Premier League away defeats on the bounce. The Potters look like they'll be safe this season and they still have the FA Cup to go for after beating Brighton comfortably at the weekend, but any reward at Arsenal looks a step too far.|
|Home Win 2-0|
