So close to landing all 3 bets on Tuesday’s mid-week games but Arsenal slipped up conceding late on. The two value bets on Wednesday failed to deliver but the Liverpool Sunderland match nearly ended 2-2 at the death and I was at least pleased to have identified value correctly. It wasn’t the drubbing many predicted and 1.18 was far too short.
It’s all well and good being on the right side of value but you still need the winners to come and they will eventually. It’s the time of the season where you do normally see some freak result. With fixtures come thick and fast, tiredness setting in and differing motivations strange things seem to happen.
Norwich surprised me last week and I’d be grateful if they could turn in another performance today at Swansea. West Ham and Newcastle are both capable of winning away against Sunderland and Southampton respectively and these 3 matches are where I think this week’s profit and loss could be decided.
Man Utd are too short at 1.5 against Villa and have lost 6 times already at Old Trafford this season. They’ll still win this match more times than they lose so not holding out too much hope for this one. united are still without Van Persie but the re-introduction of Ashley Young to the team has given them a greater impetus going forward,
This weekend’s tip of the day was a toss up between Stoke and Man City. Stoke have an excellent home record and have only lost one of their last eight fixtures. Hull’s new strike force of Long and jelavic is a threat however and I feel City who beat Arsenal 6-3 at the Etihad back in November relish this match up.
