Saturday’s early kick off sees Aston Villa take on Newcastle at Villa Park . Villa may have been beaten against Fulham last week but Newcastle are unbelievably poor and Aston Villa should be able to stroll to victory. Totesport are 5/6 about a home win and I strongly suggest you snap that up before the bookies realise their mistake. Normally you would back Agbonlahor to score first but he is out injured so back Ashley Young who is as big as 10/1 with Betfred. This certainly doesn’t appear as a game that is likely to produce many goals and Villa are worth backing to win 1-0 at 6/1 with Betfred. View more football betting tips here.
Sunday is a big day for the Premiership with the Manchester derby starting proceedings. City are beginning to get found out whilst United seem to be going from strength to strength. It is very hard to look past a United victory but the 3/10 with Totesport offers no value. You can back United to win by two goals or more in the handicap with Bet365 at 5/6 and this looks a much better bet considering how freescoring United are. With Wayne Rooney suspended their is going to be even more focus on Cristiano Ronaldo and he has to be backed at 5/6 with Blue Square to score at anytime during the match. If you fancy a go on the correct score market then look no further than a 2-0 home win as City have looked toothless up front recently and even the acquisition of Benjani shouldn’t trouble United’s defence. The 2-0 scoreline is 11/2 with Blue Square .
The second game on Sunday afternoon is Chelsea versus Liverpool at Stamford Bridge . This has traditionally been a tight affair but under Avram Grant Chelsea have looked a more attacking force. Liverpool have not looked good for a couple of months now and losing Torres to injury is a massive blow. Kuyt and Voronin is potentially one of the worst strike parnerships in the Premiership as far as goalscoring is concerned and Chelsea should be able to keep them quiet on their way to victory at evens with VC Bet. There is one man and one man only who should be backed to score the first goal and that is Nicolas Anelka who has looked very sharp since his move form Bolton . Totesport have him at 5/1 which looks a solid bet.
On Monday Blackburn travel to the Emirates Stadium to take on Arsenal and this is a fixture Arsenal have struggled in over recent years as Blackburn often make the most of their physical game. I can see this game finishing a draw at 7/2 with Stan James. Stan James are also best priced about a 1-1 draw and 9/1 looks a pretty fair bet considering it is normally around the 11/2 mark. Blackburn have relied heavily on Roque Santa Cruz to score their goals this season and he has a terrific away record so back him to score first at 10/1 with Bet365.
