Weekend Football

by Ben, last updated 2005-12-06 19:54:12

Just the one pick this week. Bolton to beat Aston Villa. The best price at the moment is 1.91 at
Betfair on the Asian Handicap. The 1% commission makes it better value than the 1x2 market. Gerry and Nigel both have tipped this too so read below for reasoning.



 Gerry's Picks

 By Gerry McDonnell

The Lying, the Hitch and the Gnawed Lobe

Often in the past, I've been accused of being over careful with money. I refute this allegation, only last week I forked out more than a fiver on the wife's Christmas present. But why should I spend a fortune taking the little ones to see the new movie ‘Narnia', when for no cost I can share ‘The chronicles of Harry Redknapp', an epic fantasy adventure.

It's a tale so ridiculous, any movie executive worth his white powder would have laughed out loud before binning the script. Harry managed Portsmouth, walked out, joined their fierce rivals, then marched the Saints out of the Premiership. A few mistruths, a snag or two and a word in the ear from Frank Lampard Senior later, and Harry is Frattonising with Pompey once again. You couldn't make it up.

Every team in the country would fancy their chances against the Portsmouth circus this weekend, the computer has generously handed Spurs the three points. Tottenham at 4/9 are the weekend nap.

Some credit the form of Stevie Gerrard for Liverpool's excellent recent run of results; others believe Peter Crouch's battle against adversity has inspired his team-mates to greater heights. Personally, i put it down to Harry Kewell elbowing his Mrs to the other side of the World.

Liverpool's improved form can be directly linked to Harry's other half being 10,000 miles away in a rat infested hell-hole; Australia.

Kewell never saw eye to eye with antipodean compatriot Mark Viduka when both played for Leeds, possibly because of Harry's pro-podean beliefs. Harry's 5/2 to outscore Viduka on Saturday, a decent looking bet considering Liverpool's water-tight defence.

May I be one of the first to congratulate Peter Crouch on opening his goal scoring account for the Reds. Crouch's strike was welcomed by thousands of punters across the land, but it's not all good news, it means we're in for another three months of winter. Crouchy can be backed at 11/8 to score at any time against Boro, as the 8/15 Pool take all three points.

Newcastle were outplayed by an average Villa team last weekend; imagine what an on song Arsenal could do. The Gunners are a great bet at Even money, they're literally a re-mortgage job if Michael Owen is ruled out. Graeme Souness is fighting for his life as the manager of the Toon; the fat lady is clearing her throat.

Birmingham City are going to absurd lengths to try to record their first home win of the season, Emile Heskey even tried a Diego Maradona impression against the Hammers last week, or ‘The hand of God-awful' as it should be christened. Fulham are the latest visitors to St Andrews who are guaranteed at least a point; back the draw at 11/5.

Put these weekend specials on your shopping list:

"Nuts" - Alan Shearer to score with a header 13/2
"Ketchup" - Man Utd to win from behind 6/1
"Crackers" - Wayne Rooney to score two or more goals 7/2
"A pear" - Thierry Henry to score two or more goals 5/1
"Te Bags" - Vaz Te to score at any time 7/4

Quote of the week:

"I've stuck by my job for five or six weeks, I've done well."

Paul Gascoigne should stay away from reporters.

Q & A of the week:

Sky Sports reporter Geoff Shreeves to Stuart Pearce:
"Danny Mills has been dropped from the squad, can you tell us why?"

Psycho:
"He's broke his leg"

Stat, you're a liberty:

Liverpool and Everton have scored a total of 25 league goals between them this season; Celtic have scored more than that away from home.

Acc of the week:

Liverpool, Sunderland, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham make up the weekend accer; this cheeky little 5 fold pays out at 28/1.

 Nigels Picks

 by Nigel Ridgeway

LAST WEEK - BOLTON WON AT 10/3
ENGLAND 7/1 FOR GLORY AS SEEDS ARE SOWN
England received a big boost on Tuesday when they became one of the top eight seeds going into Friday's World Cup draw. That wasn't enough to change their outright price from 7/1, but a good draw on Friday could see that price come under pressure and, anyone considering backing the Three Lions to win in Germany, should seriously consider going in now. The worst case scenario for England could be the possibility of facing Holland, USA and Ivory Coast, and that would be a big improvement on the 2002 finals when they faced Argentina, Nigeria and Sweden in the Far East. The big losers from FIFA's announcement were Holland, who are rated third in the world rankings but were not among the eight big boys. Instead they will go in with all the European non-seeds and, as a result, they're 9/1 from 8/1 to claim their first World crown here at bet365.

NEWCASTLE V ARSENAL - GO FOR GOALS AT 8/11
Saturday December 10th, 5.15 ko, live on Sky Prem Plus
On the domestic front, Arsenal will be looking to get their Premiership campaign back on track at St James' Park, after going down to Bolton last weekend (tipped here at 10/3). However, with their away form being so bad, it's hard to be confident about their chances this weekend, so a more lucrative bet could be to go for goals.

Goals have been scored by both van Persie and Henry in four of Arsenal's November games, and the Newcastle defence won't provide them with much of a challenge. At the other end of the field, the returning Michael Owen has a good track record against Arsenal, and will fancy his chances of scoring against a side who've kept just the one clean sheet on the road this season. Once the game goes live, don't forget to check out our 14 exciting live ‘In-Play' markets.

BOLTON A SOLID 5/6 BET AT FORT REEBOK
Bolton did us proud last weekend, and we're not going to desert them now they're playing at home to Aston Villa this Saturday. Bolton's style of play might not be that pretty to watch, but it certainly gets results, and their rise to sixth in the table is no fluke. They managed to keep another clean sheet last weekend against Arsenal, and that can't be down to their opponents' lack of scoring prowess alone. And, with the Villa defence leaking goals away from home, the Trotters look a solid bet at 5/6 at ‘Fort Reebok'.

They're the cornerstone of our Premiership acca this weekend, along with Blackburn, who'll be smarting after their surprise 2-0 defeat by Everton last weekend. That could spell trouble for the Hammers, who've not been great away from home this season. The treble is brought up by Spurs, who should give Portsmouth a good pasting at the Lane on Monday night, and pays out a respectable £132.41 for a £25 bet. The temptation is to include both Chelsea (1/5) and United (3/10), who look nailed on against Wigan and Everton respectively, especially as we're assured of getting extra value with our Premiership Accumulator Bonus (up to 60% extra each week). The 5-fold pays out £227.22 for a £20 stake, which includes a bet365 bonus of 10%.

However, I'd be wary of including Liverpool at our odds-on quote of 4/7. Their opponents, Middlesbrough, have a habit of raising their game against the better Premiership sides, as they showed when beating Arsenal and United, and they're a speculative tip at 5/1 to win in 90 minutes (live betting available). But they can be more confidently backed at 2.10 getting a three-quarter ball start (half money back if they lose by only 1 clear
goal) which, once again, shows the value of our Asian Handicap betting (bet to 102%).

Other Weekend Best Bets:

Bolton to beat Aston Villa @ 8/11
Blackburn to beat West Ham @ Evens
Tottenham to beat Portsmouth @ 4/9
Middlesbrough to beat Liverpool @ 2.10 (+3/4, Asian Handicap) Treble - Bolton, Blackburn, Tottenham 5-fold - Bolton, Blackburn, Tottenham, Chelsea and Man United (subject to bet365 10% bonus)
