Weekend Premiership Football

 Gerry's Picks

 By Gerry McDonnell

Dairy goes again

I often panic over nothing. When the wife trapped me into producing little gambling gurus, i did worry that they may end up with my intelligence and the wife's looks, which would have narrowed down their future career prospects to ‘circus attraction'. Luckily, they've ended up with the wife's brain, and curiously, the milkman's looks. I say curious, as the wife and I are lactose intolerant; we have absolutely no time for lactose, and we're not shy in speaking of our displeasure.

I bring this to your attention because little Goliath is quite bright; he's trying to remember animals by associating them with football. Whenever Ruud Van Nistelrooy comes off the bench for Man U, he shouts ‘horsey', as Peter Crouch heads wide he cries ‘donkey' and when Chelsea are playing, he shakes his head and murmurs ‘cheetahs'. It seems that everyone has cottoned on to Chelsea's lack of sportsmanship, referees will be next. Any Chelsea player to be booked for diving / simulation against Birmingham is an 11/2 shot.

Amongst all the theatrics, there will also be a game of football. You've got to fancy Chelsea to take three points home from St Andrew's, but 1/3 does not represent value. Playing the correct scores can solve this conundrum; Chelsea to win either 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0 is a 5/4 shot; now we're cooking.

Phil Neville scored a beauty last week, unfortunately, it was an own goal, against Liverpool. His brother must have been literally seething. Everton are the lucky beneficiaries of a home fixture against Sunderland; they're 3/10, certainties doesn't really cover it.

You can't get rich backing Everton, so taking an interest in a bookings market may prove to be a profitable play. Duncan Ferguson is a fearsome character, like Jason Donovan, he's done a little bird in the past. Big Dunc took only nine minutes to find his name in the book last week in the Merseyside derby; he's a 7/2 shot to have his name taken again.

Bolton's Reebok stadium is a genuine fortress, but Manchester United have a tasty army. Wayne Rooney missed a couple of golden chances against Birmingham last week (If they were chicken legs, he would have put them away), but remains a class act. A rested Van Nistelrooy is back in favour and the talented wobbly-legged Ronaldo has already helped himself to a pair against Bolton earlier in the season. United are available at 10/11, its time to go to war.

Unfortunately for Villa fans, Milan Baros has a get-out clause in his contract that can be triggered if a bid is received for £7 million pound or more, virtually ruling out a potential transfer. The poster declaring ‘We're not fickle, we just don't like you' sums up the supporters' frustration towards O'Leary's inability to motivate; an Aston Villa divided amongst itself can not possibly survive at Highbury. Arsenal may rest a couple of players with one eye on Wednesday's 2nd leg against Juventus, but in all honesty, I'd back Arsenal's reserves at 2/7 at home to the Villa.

Jermaine Jenas didn't enjoy his time at Newcastle, he compared his time there to living in a goldfish bowl. On a related note, it's a fallacy that goldfish only have a memory span of a few seconds, Rio Ferdinand may have, but that's a different kettle of fish. JJ is set for another disappointing trip to the North East, Spurs will have to settle for a draw, an 11/5 shot.

It's been said that Middlesbrough's Emanuel Pogatetz could start a ruck in an empty room, and still finish runner up; but don't tell him who said it. The Austrian defender has either been booked or saw red in 14 matches this season, it's 6/4 that he sees another card when he faces Joey Barton and Co. Man City have been depleted by injuries and suspensions, the Boro are the weekend nap at 11/4.



The weekend specials:

"Two halves at the Rovers" - Blackburn to score in both halves 2/1
"Come in handy" - Drogba to score two or more goals 4/1
"Cruising" - Stelios to score at any time 5/2
"April, Pool's day" - Liverpool to win with a clean sheet 6/5
"April, Mule's day" - Van Nistelrooy to score two or more goals 5/1

Quote of the week:

"Sometimes I dive, sometimes I stand."
Drogba's half right.

Stat, you're a liberty:

If Bolton had held on to win all the matches where they had taken a lead, they would be 2nd in the Premiership.

Acc of the week:

Man Utd, Fulham, Liverpool and Middlesbrough tick all the right boxes, an acc on all four will pay 18/1.

 Nigels Picks

 from Bet365

SHOW NO MERCY WITH REDS AT A TASTY 8/15
WBA v Liverpool
Sa Apr 1 - 5.15 pm ko (PremPlus)
If West Brom are to repeat last season's great escape, it must start here and now at the Hawthorns, but they can expect no mercy from Liverpool. The Reds have got Champions League football to secure for next season and, now that they've rediscovered their goal scoring touch, they can exploit any weaknesses in the Albion defence - and there are plenty.

Liverpool's seven-goal haul against Birmingham last week contrasts sharply with the Baggies recent draw against the same side, and another hatful could be on the cards here. Back the Reds with confidence at bet365's 8/15 and fill up on the ‘Over' goals at a standout 21/20. Once the game kicks off, don't forget to check out our live markets (up to 14 available) via the In-Play Console on the bet365 homepage.

Live Game Picks:

Liverpool @ 8/15
Over 2.5 Goals @ 21/20


BACK CHELSEA CLEAN SHEET AT 4/6
Liverpool go straight into our Premiership Acca this weekend, along with Chelsea to beat Birmingham at 3/10. That may be a no-brainer as far as the 90 minute market goes, but there are other less obvious betting opportunities on the clash here at bet365. After a recent 7-0 thrashing, everyone will be expecting the floodgates to open at St Andrews, but only one of the Birmingham's six Premiership home games since the turn of the year have produced more than two goals, while Chelsea don't score many on their travels. Only twice this season have they scored more than two goals, so there's more than a smidgeon of value in bet365's ‘Under' price of 19/20. A safer bet is Chelsea to keep a clean sheet at 4/6, as Birmingham haven't scored in five of their last six meetings with Chelsea. The match kicks off at 12.45 (live on Sky Prem Plus), so bet365's live In-Play Console is well worth checking out.

Chelsea to keep a clean sheet @ 4/6 & Under 2.5 Goals @ 19/20


VILLA COULD SURPRISE AT 9/1
Everton's home game against Sunderland should be easy pickings for the Toffees. They may have been exposed by a 10-man Liverpool at Anfield, but they're unbeaten in four matches at Goodison Park. Take the 4/11 here at bet365, but be wary of backing Arsenal at 2/7 to beat Aston Villa. The Gunners record in domestic games close to Champions League games is poor, and Villa might come away from Highbury with one of their best results of the season - 9/1 to win, 4/1 to draw.


POMPEY ARE UP FOR IT AT 10/3
There are a couple of away teams that may pull off surprises at tasty prices this weekend, starting with Middlesbrough (12/5) at Man City. Premiership safety still isn't totally certain for Boro after Pompey's return to form, but one more win should do it, and that can come at the expense of their opponents. Stuart Pearce's side don't have much left to play for this season, and a pumped up Boro could be too good for them.
Meanwhile, Portsmouth are finally looking serious about avoiding relegation, and that extra edge will make all the difference against a Fulham side who are going nowhere fast. They look a value bet at bet365's 10/3 to take all three points at Craven Cottage. We'll perm any one from the two in an Acca this weekend, knowing we're assured of some extra value with bet365's Premiership Bonus, which pays up to 60% more on such bets every weekend.

Premiership Acca: Middlesbrough / Portsmouth (perm 1 from 2); Liverpool, Chelsea and Everton - best return £309.19 (£25 stake), including a bet365 bonus of 5%
