We have five games in the Bri­tish Premier League to­day all start­ing at 5pm and a late game at 7.30pm. Le­ices­ter look good value at 15-10 given the fact that vis­i­tors Cardiff have only scored one point all sea­son out­side of Wales. Brighton host Ever­ton and I can only fore­cast a draw at 5-2 for these two in­con­sis­tent teams. Spurs should get all three points at Wem­b­ley when they host Wolves, but 4-10 looks a short price. The big rel­e­ga­tion game has the bot­tom two teams meet­ing when Ful­ham host Hud­der­s­field. I am go­ing for a fair-sized bet on Ful­ham at 16-10 be­cause I be­lieve that they have shown im­prove­ment in their last three games. I would stay out fi­nan­cially when Wat­ford host New­cas­tle. The late game has Liver­pool host­ing Arse­nal and given Liver­pool’s home record and Arse­nal’s away record, I be­lieve 6-10 Liver­pool is a gift. To­mor­row, I see good value for money in the Lon­don derby when Palace host Chelsea. Palace at 13-2 and 4-1 the draw looks invit­ing with Chelsea a joke at 4-10. Manch­ester City are 1-4 to beat Southamp­ton. Manch­ester United, with the best coach in the world and a big chance to qual­ify for the Cham­pi­ons League ac­cord­ing to the Pom­mie press, af­ter they beat Cardiff, host Bournemouth to­day. The coach they are pro­mot­ing was the coach of Cardiff when they were rel­e­gated from the Premier League. News Year’s day was al­ways the ac­tion day of the year with all teams in­volved but the clowns in Eng­land now give us three mun­dane games on Tues­day. Arse­nal at 2-11 to beat Ful­ham, Spurs at 6-10 to beat Cardiff and Ever­ton host­ing Le­ices­ter. In their wis­dom, the Poms have killed News Years Day soc­cer in my eyes. On Wed­nes­day night the next six games take place but at 9.45pm out time. Burn­ley at 5-2 are my value bet when they travel to Hud­der­s­field. Can you imag­ine Barcelona play­ing Real Madrid on Thurs­day night – well that is what the Poms have done when Manch­ester City host Liver­pool at 10pm. At the time of writ­ing Liver­pool were four points clear so a City vic­tory will close the gap to just one point. It sounds un­real, but it sounds un­real but a Liver­pool vic­tory will shoot them a mas­sive seven points clear. Both teams at­tack for 90 min­utes solid so the 0-0 on Oc­to­ber 6 last year was a freak re­sult. Last sea­son, Mane of Liver­pool was wrongly sent off af­ter 15 min­utes which lead to a 5-0 City waltz. At An­field, Liver­pool gave City a soc­cer les­son and led 4-1 with eight min­utes re­main­ing and City scored two con­so­la­tion goals. I can­not be­lieve the bet­ting with City at 8-10, Liver­pool 33-10 and the draw 26-10. Got on Liver­pool and the same stake, a draw will see you in front ei­ther way.
