Anyway, we turn our attention to this weekend’s Premier League. I reckon Manchester City will do a job on Swansea at the Liberty at 4/5. We’ll also take the mighty Arsenal to get one over on QPR, whose season is all but over, at 1/2. Finally we back West Ham at 7/5 at home to do the business over Newcastle who boast the WORST away record in the league.
The last day of the Championship can throw up queer results, with many games being complete non-events, so tread carefully. Bolton need a result against Blackpool to be certain of a play-off place, so we’ll chuck them in our accumulator to lengthen the odds. Crystal Palace can still finish the season strongly, despite a post-Christmas wobble, against Peterborough who are, to put things nicely, a bit useless.
Over in debt-ridden Spain we fancy Atletico Madrid to win away at Deportivo, which in the reverse fixture earlier in the season saw Falcao and his mates win 6-0. Athletico have won this encounter on every occasion since late 2009.
Home wins: Fulham, Tottenham, West Ham, Bolton, Crystal Palace, Charlton.
Away wins: Arsenal, Man City, Athletico Madrid, Rayo Vallecano, Morton.
Draws: West Brom vs. Wigan, Liverpool vs. Everton, Hull vs. Cardiff, Sheffield Wed vs. Middlesbrough.
Both teams to score: Liverpool vs. Everton, Man Utd vs. Chelsea, Burnley vs. Ipswich (this weekend); Real Madrid vs. Borussia Dortmund, Barcelona vs. Bayern Munich, Chelsea vs. Basel, (Europe).
Diamond of the day: Man City -1 handicap vs. Wigan in the FA Cup Final. Get on it now. Buying money. ODDS = 10/11
Duck of the day: Man Utd to win the league 2013/14. Heads gone. Way too short. Still a lot of work to do. City will spend big. Chelsea with Mourinho and Falcao look an outfit, top quality teams. ODDS = 6/4
Tipster treble: Fulham, Man City and Arsenal all to win this weekend. Get on. ODDS = 7/2
Shout out of the week: Shaun Maloney of Wigan. Appreciated his leveller in injury time against QPR the other week.
