Weekend Football Betting Tips

 Pinnacle Picks


With the transfer window now firmly shut, we are entering the business end of the Premiership season. Expect plenty of drama as clubs at both ends of the table start to feel the pressure, but rely on www.pinnaclesports.com to provide the best Asian Handicap prices, up to 60% better than the opposition.

Liverpool Out For Derby Revenge After Goodison Mauling
When Liverpool and Everton met earlier in the season, the Red half of Merseyside were left in mourning, as they slumped to a 3-0 defeat, their worst Derby loss in 42 years. Hopes should be higher for the Pool ahead of the 205th meeting of the clubs, who boast the best home record in the Premiership. The midweek 2-1 win over West Ham was their fifth straight league win, and ninth in ten recent games. That kind of form, and the understandable desire for revenge, have led www.pinnaclesports.com to price Liverpool favourites 1.98 (-1), with Everton 1.943 (+1).

Hopes of a Derby double for Everton - the first since 1984/85 - have been dealt a blow by the ankle injury to top-scorer, Andy Johnson. Though midfield dynamo, Tim Cahill, has returned from a long lay-off, he is probably still short of full match fitness, so the Toffees' chances may rest on the ability of midfielder, Mikel Arteta, to influence the game. The Spaniard is the club's player-of-the-season, underlined when he scored both goals in the recent 2-0 win at Wigan.

Terry Ready to Lead Chelsea into the Valley
Alan Pardew has the opportunity for revenge over his former club, if he can muster an unlikely home win over the Champions, it could take Charlton above West Ham. However, that is a tall order given the Addicks home performances against the clubs currently either side of Chelsea. Both Liverpool and Man Utd left the Valley this season with a 3-0 win, and since Mourinho has been in charge Chelsea have won this fixture with a two game aggregate of 6-0.

There have so many false dawns surrounding John Terry's return to action that reports he will start this game should be treated with caution. If his name is on the team sheet, it is a big plus for those bettors looking to take advantage of www.pinnaclesports.com 's price 1.735 (-1). However, just as one key Chelsea defender recovers, another is sidelined, with Ashley Cole now facing a long lay-off. Uncertainty also hangs over the participation of a trio of Charlton's most influential players - captain Luke Young, top-scorer Darren Bent and midfield playmaker, Andy Reid. Their participation will greatly influence the attractiveness of www.pinnaclesports.com 's Asian Handicap price for Charlton of 2.26 (+1).

Riverside Remains Tough Venue for Premiership Elite
Though only in his first season as a manager, Gareth Southgate has already experienced the highs and lows in charge of Middlesbrough. Certainly it seemed unlikely he'd make it to Christmas on the evidence of the 4-0 home defeat by Portsmouth. To his credit Southgate has turned things around, and Boro are now unbeaten in seven games, and still in the hat for the fifth round of the FA Cup. The Riverside also remains a graveyard for the big clubs, with Chelsea and Bolton leaving empty-handed this term, and Liverpool managing just a 0-0 draw.

Arsenal visit on Saturday evening hoping to improve on last season's 2-1 defeat. Though the title is probably a forlorn hope for the Gunners, they must maintain the distance between themselves and fifth place Bolton, who would be only too happy to replace them in next season's Champions League. Most of Arsenal's big-guns were spectators for the midweek Carling Cup success, so should be fresh here and www.pinnaclesports.com rate the visitors favourites 1.84 (-0.5) with Boro 2.09 (+0.5).

Spurs Must Shake Off Carling Cup Blues
Manchester United maintained their distance from Chelsea with an effortless 4-0 win at home to Watford on Wednesday night. However, Sunday's assignment at White Hart Lane is much tougher, as Spurs have lost just three times there in the league. Tottenham do have to pick themselves up having lost out to Arsenal in midweek for a Carling Cup final appearance, but at least their dream of European glory is still alive. To guarantee participation on the continent next term too, Martin Jol's side will need to improve on their current league position of 10th.

For United's Michael Carrick, returning to his former club, this game has special resonance. The Geordie won no silverware in his time at Spurs, but his chances of Premiership winners' medal will be greatly boosted by three points here. Aside from Manchester United's form this season - losing just twice on the road - they have also won on their last five visits to The Lane, so understandably www.pinnaclesports.com have them as favourites 1.877 (-0.5) with the Londoners 2.05 (+0.5).

 Bet365 Picks


PREMIERSHIP PROPHECY – REDS TO GAIN REVENGE
 
The Premiership is back this weekend and there are some interesting matches for punters to get stuck into, including the Merseyside derby which gets proceedings under way on Saturday (kick off 12.45pm, live betting available). bet365 are betting to 107% as usual and make Liverpool 4/7 favourite to rain revenge over Everton (9/2, 5/2 the draw), who beat them 3-0 earlier in the season.
 
That result might well turn out to be the Toffees’ highlight of the season as they’ve struggled for consistency of late and have injury problems, including to striker Andy Johnson who scored twice in the reverse fixture. By all means take the 4/7, but snap up bet365's 11/10 on ‘over’ 2.5 goals too. The same bet would have copped in six of the last eight meetings, while Liverpool are the third highest-scoring home side in the league this season.
 
Plus, any bet365 customer with a winning correct score bet on the Merseyside derby will get a free correct score bet on bet365’s next ‘Big Match’ – Middlesbrough v Arsenal (lick off 5.15pm). If that’s a winner too, have another free correct score bet on Sunday’s Livingston v Celtic game.
 
At the bottom of the table, we’re unlikely to see much movement after this weekend’s results. Both West Ham and Sheffield United are unlikely to come away with anything from their trips to Aston Villa (5/6) and Blackburn (4/6), while Charlton (v Chelsea 4/11), Watford (v Bolton Evens) and Wigan (v Portsmouth 13/8) could also come unstuck at home. An accumulator on all five of the bottom clubs’ opponents to win this weekend pays out a juicy £240.63 for a tenner, which is boosted by a bet365 bonus of 10% (up to 60% available this weekend).
 
In other games, Fulham could be set to continue their frustrating run of draws against Newcastle, while Reading are fancied to grab a point at Man City - the draw / draw double pays out £208 for a £20 stake at bet365. The draw could also be the best punting option in the Boro v Arsenal encounter at 23/10, but a safer bet is on the ‘overs’. Boro’s recent mini-revival has been characterised by goals at both ends of the field, while eight of Arsenals’ last 11 games have been ‘overs’.
 
In Sunday’s live game, Man United (5/6) are likely to have to much class for Tottenham, but it might be worth waiting until after kick off (4.00pm) before backing them on bet365's In-Play Console. In their last game against Pompey, it took them until the 77th minute to open the scoring!



 Gerry's Picks

 by Gerry McDonnell

I saw her limping there

The wife is no stranger to exercise. Somewhat controversially, she now concentrates solely on working her liver; I can see the logic though, it's occasionally her second largest internal organ.

If the Government told the wife that she could only purchase her beloved Buckfast during January, she would quite rightly revolt; which admittedly, is not a major deviation from the norm.

I find it incredible that Premiership managers are handicapped in such a fashion. It's almost impossible to do any business in such a small window, although I did manage it once in Amsterdam.

Paradoxically, Martin O'Neill's transactions have been exceptional. He somehow managed to entice the classy John Carew, and all it cost him was a dud Czech. The Villa are bouncing, they'll see off the Hammers at 10/11.

A little known FIFA clause allows Frank Lampard to leave Chelsea for a relatively paltry £8m. Frank may have his knockers, but that seems a fair price to me. The champions have too much up top for a struggling Charlton; get on at a well developed 2/5.

Sheffield United win the award for the most surprising transfer. You could have knocked me over with a feather when news broke that they had signed Fathi; who knew that they had a spare £8m. The Blades haven't won in Blackburn for 20 years; the Rovers are the weekend nap at an ample 8/11.

I believe the children are the future, unless we crack down hard on them now. The appointment of Stuart Pearce to the England Under-21 setup has been met with consternation by the Manchester City board; Reading can take full advantage at 12/5.

Mohammed Al Fayed can't believe that Reading are above Fulham in the table; he thinks it's a Royal conspiracy. The Cottagers will triumph over Newcastle at a clandestine 13/10.

Paul Jewell must be sick of the sight of Harry Redknapp; and not just because of the annoying twitch. Wigan have already lost twice to Portsmouth this season, a Pompey treble is in the bag at a knee-jerk 13/8.

I am extremely disappointed with Lua Lua. It wasn't the fact that he was arrested for an alleged domestic disturbance; I feel let down because he didn't do a double back flip after striking. I'm doing somersaults about the 7/1 for a 1-0 win to Portsmouth.

Jesus is more than handy with a loaf of bread and a piece of cod, but even He would struggle to keep Watford in the Premiership. Prayers do occasionally get answered though, thank you Al Bangura. Get on Bolton to beat Watford at a sacrilicious 5/4.

Liverpool host neighbours Everton in a tantalising Merseyside derby. The Toffeemen haven't won at Anfield this millennium; it'll be the Liverpool fans bragging in the benefit office on Monday morning. The Reds are a steal at 8/13.

Cesc Fabregas is a little magician. As long as he avoids Debbie McGee he's got a decent future in the game. The 4/5 for an Arsenal win over Middlesbrough is spellbinding.

Tottenham are like Paul McCartney on his wedding night, they have to get over an extremely disappointing second leg. Man U will overwhelm the deflated Spurs at 5/6.

Wayne Rooney has been labeled a tubby Eric Cantona, and there's more than an element of truth in such a comparison. The next big thing can net the opener at 6/1.

Ever since the departure of Cantona (and to a lesser degree Sheringham), United have struggled for a quality player in the hole. I believe Rooney will prove to be the missing link. I'm going ape about United scoring three or more goals at 11/4.

This week's accer is so alluring, it reminds me of the wife's sister; but i'll get into that later. Liverpool, Aston Villa, Blackburn and Reading are the selections, the payout is a feisty 16/1.
