WAG IS BACK AFTER GOING 4-2 IN HIS LAST SLATE OF PREMIER LEAGUE FIXTURES. THERE IS A LOT OF MONEY TO BE WON.
We are onto match day 11 of the Premier League after a historical performance from Leicester City on the anniversary of the horrific helicopter crash last year. They gave their fans nine reasons to scream and shout for ‘The Boss’. The Vegas oddsmakers recieved a good slap to their face after allocating the City/Villa goal count at 4.5 goals! Yikes that guy needs to be fired. Pulisic came through fro Chelsea with his perfect hatrick and after an early goal from Harry Kane, which made the Over (3.5) look like a sure winner, Liverpool was able to pull through, ending my weekend at 4-2.
This weekend’s Premier League games are very interesting as the dust is starting to settle in the top half of the league, as well as the bottom. Leicester City will travel to Crystal Palace on Sunday as the foxes could create more space between the top four and potentially gain second place if Manchester City slips. Manchester United is playing an away game where I’m eye balling the Under, and Arsenal have that sense of urgency even though there is a lot of background noise regarding Xhaka. Tottenham visits Everton as they highlight and finish match day 11.
Bournemouth vs. Manchester United
Bournemouth are looking to break their three game scoreless streak against the visiting Red Devils of Manchester. Although Bournemouth are sitting in the top ten of the Premier League, a potential loss in this fixture could see the Cherries drop down to sixteenth. Eddie Howe must be eager to get his striking force going after a stellar performance against Watford that couldn’t be rewarded with 3 points. Manchester United look like they have bested their demons, fittingly just in time for Halloween. Their penalty demons are still very much alive, but nonetheless United brought three points away from home in three consecutive fixtures if you’re in Rashford’s mind. Apparently beating a team in the Carabao Cup gives you points in the Premier League. Who would have thought.
- Bournemouth are winless in last 7 matches vs. United
- United failed to score in 1 of last 16 fixtures vs. Bournemouth
- United have failed to keep a clean sheet in last 10 away PL fixtures
I do think Manchester United will be victorious in Bournemouth as the Red Devils are unbeaten in their last 4 matches. I would have said that Manchester United’s away form is nothing short of atrocious but they have been lively ever since winning in the Europa on their only shot on goal, which was a penalty. However, the Under screams and so is that puppy in the dog shelter that is dying to come home with you. Pick up that puppy, and bet the Under.
Arsenal vs. Wolves
The Gunners are coming off a ten goal game at Anfield only to see them lose in penalties. The next generation of footballers are looking to be a promising bunch of kids. Any how, that was the response that Arsenal needed after Captain(?) Granit Xhaka was booed off his own field, but the player won’t see minutes against the Wolves. Speaking of the Wolves, they love to tie games. Their record is 2-6-2 sitting in twelfth place in the Premier League standings after suffering a loss away to Aston Villa.
- Arsenal have won 1 of last 4 PL fixtures vs. Wolves
- Wolves are beaten in last 7 games in London
- Arsenal haven’t lost at 3pm GMT on a Saturday since 13/14 season
Well there ya have it. Along with a frustrating game against Crystal Palace, and not losing games on Saturday afternoon’s is our recipe to win this bet! Arsenal have historically been one of those teams that never had the same type of result in the next fixture. By that I mean it’s more likely for them to tie a game after a win, rather winning consecutively. It’s ridiculous, but that logic is going to work for this bet. Arsenal money line to the moon.
Aston Villa vs. Liverpool
Liverpool are still steam rolling through the Premier League, building up the one of biggest potential chokes in the Premier League. I still think Liverpool are going to win the Premier League, but you never know what the standings can look like come February and all of a sudden Liverpool are in second place. Staying in the present, Liverpool played a wild game against Arsenal in the Carabao Cup with Divock Origi secretly dressing up as Superman during that fixture. Aston Villa are also in great form beating the Wolves in the Carabao Cup as Villa continue to be the new kings of the Over, hitting it in five straight games.
- Villa have won 4 of last 29 PL games vs. Liverpool
- Villa have won 4 of last 39 PL games vs. 1st place that day
- Liverpool aren’t losing
Liverpool have been very impressive. It’s no secret that playing at Liverpool is playing for the shirt and the club crest, but in todays day and age where money talks, these Liverpool players aren’t fazed by the financials and are more focused on their passion. It’s truly been an impressive run of 27 games unbeaten for Klopp and his men. Im going to continue to bet the Over because Aston Villa has hit the Over in 4 of their last 5 games.
Crystal Palace vs. Leicester City
The two top six surprises of the season finally go head-to-head as the Foxes of Leicester travel to London to face the Eagles of Crystal Palace. Crystal Palace are having the most boring yet impressive season thus far as they sit in sixth place in the standings, Palace have scored 10 goals as they are the seventh lowest scoring team this Premier League season. Pretty damn impressive sitting in an Europa league spot where you have the same number of goals scored as games played. Leicester City played their hearts out against Southampton putting their names in the history book yet again. I gotta say it is very hard to hate the foxes!
- Palace have won last 4 PL games vs. Leicester (Agg. 13-1)
- Leicester have lost 4 of last 7 away games vs. Palace
- Palace have no last back-to-back PL home games since March
Although Leicester City statistically struggles against Crystal Palace, I don’t think history will repeat itself in this Sunday fixture. Leicester has conceded the least number of goals, tied with Liverpool and recently promoted Sheffield United. All in all, I don’t think Leicester is going to flinch in this fixture. C’mon Foxes!
The Premier League are very good at saving the best for last as the Spurs look to flock through Goodison Park to cap off our weekend. My ‘Oh so woeful’ Toffees are 2 points behind the relegation zone losing away to Brighton. Do I think beating Watford in the Carabao Cup changes Everton’s confidence? Fuck no, because when it comes to playing in the Premier League Everton plays the stalest football ever. As the weeks go by, it makes more and more sense as to why the Toffees are where they are at. Everton are playing impressive football but are struggling to find the back of the net as they are have scored 10 goals in as many games. Then there are the Spurs. A good thing to note about the Spurs is that they just don’t have Harry Kane at the moment. They have a very angry Harry Kane who will tell everyone to ‘Fuck off’. It’s funnier to hear it in his nasally voice. But playing Liverpool after thrashing their Champions League was a tough transition for the Spurs.
- Last 2 home games Everton lost vs. Spurs had an aggregate score of 2-9
- Everton have lost 5 of last 6 PL games
- Spurs are winless in last 11 PL away games
Although this is the game of the week, I would recommend you flip a coin to pick your winner in this fixture. The last time the Spurs visited Everton, they won 2-6 and previously before that 3-0. Tottenham’s season is already over as the players are only playing for their paycheck at this point. But overall this fixture has been a high scoring affair through in and throughout, which is why I’m going to go against the streak and bet the Under!
