Archived Premier League football betting tips (27th to 29th Apr 2013)

Sat 12:45 Man City v West Ham
  City's dream of catching United evaporated last weekend as they suffered further disappointment on the road. They were a goal to the good at half-time at White Hart Lane but a glorious 8-minute spell for Spurs in the second half saw City lose 3-1. That was City's third defeat in their last 5 Premier League away matches and effectively handed United the title. However, this weekend they're back at Eastlands where their home form has been reasonably reliable having won 12 of their 16 fixtures to date. Doubts remain over the fitness of David Silva although the previously injured Aguero made the bench for the Tottenham defeat. They host a West Ham side up to 10th on the back of a string of 5 games undefeated. The latest was a 2-0 win over relegation-threatened Wigan at Upton Park. As good as the Hammers have been in recent weeks, they've little to play for except a mid-table finish whilst City should have slightly more motivation to ensure that they avoid Champions League qualifying matches by finishing second. Can't see the Hammers being beaten heavily but City should do just enough.
Home Win 2-1
Sat 15:00 Everton v Fulham
  Once again Everton have had a great season despite the lack of funds available but this time they're on course to finish above their arch-rivals Liverpool. However, European football now looks unlikely and that could be a factor if David Moyes eventually decides to part company with the club. Their 6-game unbeaten run came to an end last weekend at Sunderland but that says more about the appointment of Paolo Di Canio than it does about how Everton are playing currently. The Toffees have lost just one top flight fixture at Goodison this season, a 2-1 defeat to Chelsea, although they did lose 3-0 at home to Wigan in the 6th round of the FA Cup. There are doubts over Anichebe and Gibson who were both forced off in the Sunderland defeat plus Jagielka who missed the game after aggravating an ankle injury. Fulham are the visitors to Goodison after losing 3-0 at home to neighbours Chelsea. The Cottagers have taken just a single point from the last 12 available, a surprising statistic given that recently they'd enjoyed a 5-match unbeaten run. The 3-goal scoreline at Craven Cottage last weekend was not really an accurate reflection of the game with Fulham missing some good chances but mid-table is probably the best Martin Jol's side can expect from this season. This should be 3 points for the home side.
Home Win 1-0
  Southampton v West Brom
  A mid-table game between 2 sides that are more than likely ready to enjoy another season in the top flight. Southampton aren't yet mathematically safe but they could well be by the time the final whistle blows. The Saints are on a fantastic run of 6 matches unbeaten including home victories over Liverpool and Chelsea. They've only been beaten twice in their last 10 games and play an exciting brand of football under Pochettino, especially at St Mary's. Their opponents, West Brom, have also surpassed expectations this season and are currently 8th although it's unlikely they'll finish any higher. Their early seasosn form, especially at the Hawthorns, has been largely responsible for their current position with recent results not quite matching the same expectations. The Baggies are without a win in four suggesting that the finish line is looming a little closer now that they're safe. Mulumbu is still banned whilst Odemwingie looks a doubt with a knee problem after missing the draw with Newcastle. I'm really liking the way Southampton are playing at the moment and this is another winnable game for them.
Home Win 2-1
  Stoke v Norwich
  Just a point separates these 2 sides in the bottom half of the table with neither side likely to become embroiled in the battle for survival; Stoke's win at Loftus Road last weekend doing much to ease their own relegation concerns. Norwich also registered a much-needed victory at home to Reading last weekend, one that they were expected to win but gives them some extra breathing space none the less. Stoke's win at QPR ended a miserable run of 1 point from the last 7 matches but is unlikely to stop Potters' manager Tony Pulis from leaving the club. Rumour has it that he may leave as soon as the club are safe but an exit is definitely on the cards by the end of the campaign. They host a Norwich side who themselves ended a 6-match winless run by beating the Royals. The Canaries' record on the road is a poor one though with just a single top flight away win all season; only Reading and QPR have lost more Premier League away fixtures. Norwich may find themselves short on centre-half options with Whittaker ruled out of the Reading win and Turner limping off early in that match. A win for the Canaries would likely see them safe but with all that's going on at the Britannia, I can see Stoke doing their utmost to net a second win on the bounce.
Home Win 1-0
  Wigan v Tottenham
  Wigan's Premier League future is hanging in the balance and at the moment it looks like a straight shootout between themselves and Aston Villa as to who survives. The Latics are currently trailing Villa by 3 points and have a game in hand although having taken just 1 point from the last 9 available, that extra game may not count for much. Martinez claims that their success in reaching the FA Cup final will not distract them from the task in hand but only time will tell. Alcaraz is injured once again with Caldwell his likely replacement. They host a Spurs side that came back from a goal down to beat City at White Hart Lane last weekend. Bale started that game and Defoe came on to replace Adebayor with both subsequently scoring. Aaron Lennon also comes back into contention for the trip to Wigan although Gallas is still nursing a calf injury. With a game in hand over Arsenal and only a point behind Chelsea, Spurs' fate is in their own hands and success will be measured by a top four finish. On the road, Spurs have proved themselves second only to United with 9 wins from 16 matches and Wigan could find themselves susceptible to the Spurs counter-attack. Both sides have to win this but Spurs have the edge.
Away Win 1-2
Sat 17:30 Newcastle v Liverpool
  Following Liverpool's draw with Chelsea last weekend, the big news this week has been the fallout of Luis Suarez's decision to take a chunk out of Ivanovic's arm. Not quite on the scale of the classic film Jaws, the FA have deemed it bad enough to slap the Uruguayan striker with a 10-match ban effectively ruling him out for the rest of the season and the chase for the golden boot. At the time of writing, Suarez still has the right of appeal but he may have bitten off more than he can chew this time. All puns aside, Liverpool's season is drawing to a disappointing close with no European football on the horizon and a finish second to Merseyside neighbours Everton. They've drawn their last 3 matches, those at home to West Ham and away at Reading especially disappointing. They travel to St James Park where Newcastle are in danger of being caught up in the battle against the drop unless their results improve. They've only won one of the last 5 matches, a 1-0 win over Fulham, but were soundly beaten at home by a rejuvenated Sunderland only recently. Their latest result was a 1-1 draw at the Hawthorns but more importantly they bounced back from that local derby defeat. Tiote is fully expected to make his comeback this weekend and rumours that Cisse had suffered a rib injury have been quashed. However, the game could come too soon for the likes of Coloccini and Santon. The Magpies are under pressure to dig out a result and I fancy them against a Liverpool side that've been far too inconsistent this season.
Home Win 1-0
Sun 13:30 Reading v QPR
  The bottom two sides slug it out with relegation all but mathematically confirmed. Villa's failure to win at Old Trafford last Monday night means that neither side has yet plunged through the trapdoor but if Villa beat Sunderland at Villa Park this Monday then both Reading's and QPR's fate is sealed. Similarly, a draw at the Madjeski would hasten both club's relegation. The majority of Reading's successes this season have come on home soil with them losing just 6 of their Premier League home fixtures to date but they've not won in 9 games although they did hold Liverpool to a goalless draw recently. Jimmy Kebe is still major doubt whilst Pogrebnyak has been preferred to Le Fondre in recent weeks. Opponents QPR have won just 2 away fixtures all season, losing 11, and they've now not had a win in 5. Redknapp has accepted that relegation is a near certainty but vowed to stay on. Zamora serves the last of his 3-match ban whilst Taarabt and Townsend are fresh doubts. The draw is no good to either side and forced to pick a winner, Reading at home look more likely than QPR away.
Home Win 2-1
Sun 15:00 Chelsea v Swansea
  Chelsea are looking good to make it to the Europa League final after beating Basel 2-1 away prior to the home leg next week. The danger is that their European success will act as a distraction to the domestic challenge of finshing in the top four. Chelsea's run-in is looking far more tricky than that of either Arsenal or Spurs with a key game against Tottenham plus a tough away fixture at Old Trafford and another at home to Everton. That said, the Blues will be looking for revenge against Swansea for the 2-0 home defeat they suffered in the League Cup semi-final first leg at Stamford Bridge. They failed to claw back the deficit in the second leg at the Liberty and this represents their last stab at payback. Cole and Terry are starting again for Benitez whilst Cahill was fit enough for a place on the bench in Basel. Swansea haven't won since the start of March when they beat Newcastle and given that they're comfortable in mid-table and have some silverware to their name, they probably just want to see the season through. They've not won on the road in the top flight since the turn of the year and I can't see what would drive them to turn Chelsea over. Laudrup has a fully-fit squad to choose from but that's unlikely to prevent a Chelsea win.
Home Win 2-0
Sun 16:00 Arsenal v Man Utd
  United cruised to their 20th title with 4 games left to play after Robin Van Persie's hat-trick against Villa at Old Trafford. It's arguably one of Ferguson's best sides and as soon as you think they might ease off now the title's in their pocket, Ferguson challenges his players to break Chelsea's record Premier League points tally of 95 set 8 years ago.. United have to win all remaining 4 games to set a total of 96, not a foregone conclusion given that they still have to face Arsenal and Chelsea. They dropped points in their last away fixture drawing 2-2 at Upton Park and the trip to the Emirates is another tough game. The Gunners are currently 3rd and look the best placed of themselves, Chelsea and Spurs to finish in the top four although they've played a match more. However, Arsenal don't have the most difficult of run-ins and should be playing Champions League football next season. Giroud is Arsenal's only absentee after being sent off in the 1-0 win at Fulham for dangerous play and misses the next 3 matches. Difficult to pick a winner but both sides might be happy enough to play out a draw.
Draw 1-1
Mon 20:00 Aston Villa v Sunderland
  Sunderland look to be climbing away from the relegation battle below them after 2 straight wins under new manager Di Canio but they're only 3 points better off than Villa and possibly Wigan if the Latics win their game in hand. That leaves them still in danger of getting caught although a win at Villa Park should cement their continued status in the top flight. Going on their last away match in which they hammered local rivals Newcastle 3-0, you wouldn't put it past them getting another crucial result this weekend. Their opponents, Villa, tried to take the game to United at Old Trafford but were out of their depth and a superb Robin Van Persie hat-trick saw them leave with nothing. Wigan are currently 3 points adrift with a game in hand and Villa will know by Monday night what they have to do to at least maintain that gap; let's just say that most Villans will be praying for a Spurs victory. Paul Lambert has to decide between containment and trying to nick the game or the gung-ho approach for all-out victory. Di Canio will probably leave Sessegnon playing behind Graham although Craig Gardner is available again after suspension and it remains to be seen whether he can force his way back in. Can't see this being too pretty but on form Sunderland look the team to back.
Away Win 1-2
