Free Premiership betting tips 01/02/08
After the hectic activity of transfer deadline day it is great to get back to real football. The tie of the weekend is possibly Spurs versus Manchester United where arguably the best player in the world, Cristiano Ronaldo, will be strutting his stuff. No player in Premier League history has scored as many goals as he has at this stage in the season and if you fancy him to score again he is 11/8 with Totesport to net anytime. It seems inevitable that both sides will score and the over 2.5 goals bet at 4/6 with Bet365 looks a certainty, even at restrictive odds. United might just edge this game 2-1 and if you fancy that as a scoreline then take the 7/1 with Betfred.
The early kick off on Saturday takes place at Eastlands when Man City take on Arsenal. There is no denying City are going through a blip and the 5/6 about an away win with Totesport looks well worth a bet. Emmanuel Adebayor is only being kept off the top of the scoring charts by Cristiano Ronaldo and he rates a fair bet to score first at odds of 9/2 with Stan James. Finally, it seems unlikely that City will score, especially if the transfer of Benjani isn’t settled by then, so back Arsenal to win 2-0 at 7/1 with Betfred.
In the Saturday evening fixture stuttering Liverpool take on relegation threatened Sunderland. Roy Keane will have his players well up for this match and with Liverpool ’s poor recent form and tendency to draw the 4/1 with VC Bet about a stalemate looks overpriced. New Sunderland signing Rade Prica looked lively on his debut and he looks the value bet in the anytime goal market at 4/1 withBet365.
Sunday’s best match is the derby between Newcastle and Middlesbrough. Boro have improved markedly over recent weeks and with the signing of Alfonso Alves they have a striker capable of matching their ambitions. Newcastle are yet to score under new manager Kevin Keegan and the Toon Army look worth taking on at the odds and Boro should be backed at 3/1 with Stan James.
