4 to watch – Premier League / Racism Weekend
This entry was posted on Friday, November 18th, 2011
– Saturday sees the battle between the two unbeaten sides left in the Premier League as Manchester City host the surprise package of the season, Newcastle United. Newcastle have only conceded three in their five away games to date, so this may be a match where City need to be patient. We think Newcastle will hold out until half time but ultimately lose 2-0. Back Draw/City in the half-time/ full market with Ladbrokes at 7/2.
– In-form Arsenal travel to Norwich for the lunchtime game on Saturday, having lost just once in the last eleven, although that includes only two away wins. The relentless RVP is surely destined to score again, although the best price is the even money Blue Square offer.
– Bolton appear to have turned a corner with their impressive 5-0 thumping of Stoke, and their journey to West Brom could present an opportunity to continue where they left off before the international break. The Baggies have suffered at home this season, winning just once and they’ve failed to score in three of their last four at the Hawthorns. All this makes the Betfair price of 4.1 on Bolton look particularly attractive.
– Whilst Stoke have failed to register a point in the Premier League the immediate aftermath of their four Europa League group games, their form after International breaks makes for more comforting reading. QPR haven’t impressed on their two most recent travels, being outplayed at both Fulham and Spurs so we like the 15/8 Paddy Power offer on Stoke winning to nil is the way to go.
