If Aston Villa fail to win at home tomorrow, it would represent the worst home league run in their illustrious 138 year history. Fulham meanwhile, should be buoyed by the 5-0 thumping they gave Wolves last weekend, and are an enticing 2/1 shot with Ladbrokes. However, Jol’s men have only won at Wigan and QPR this season – surely Villa aren’t that bad. They might be. Nevertheless, we also like the draw at 23/10 with Ladbrokes.
Wolves have won just one of their last fifteen, so the 7/5 on offer for them to beat Blackburn at home this weekend, probably won’t have the punters flocking. Their last 11 home league games have all featured over 2.5 goals however, so we’ll take overs at 8/11 with Blue Square.
Incredibly consistent in their early-season flimsiness, and post Christmas recovery, Everton haven’t lost since Harry Redknapp’s men beat them in December and are now unbeaten in eight. At home, they’ve had four consecutive wins in all competitions including victories over Manchester City and Chelsea. Meanwhile Spurs haven’t won in any of their last four league away games so we’ll back Everton at 15/8 with Bet365, to continue the Not Harry for England campaign.
Chelsea start life in the Premier League without Andre Villas-Boas and we suspect it will be a winning one. 4/9 with Blue Square is probably about right given that Stoke have lost on all three of their Premier League visits to Stamford Bridge, including a tremendous 7-0 humping back in April 2010. We like a little bit of value, and think we’ll get it backing Chelsea at -1 on the Handicap market at 13/10 with Blue Square.
