4 for the Weekend.
How was your summer? We enjoyed it, and with the warm weather packing away its bag for the year, it is time to focus on the football again.
It may be the last-chance saloon for Wolves this weekend. Winless under Terry Connor, defeat to Bolton would deal a hefty psychological blow from which they surely would not recover. We quite fancy them however. Spurs pummelled Coyle’s men in midweek, and Bolton’s away form, without even a goal in their last four, provides further fuel to our fire (don’t panic buy kids.)
Wigan against Stoke is unlikely to be a goal fest. Nobody has scored fewer than the 17 Wigan have at home, and only Fulham have fewer goals on the road than the 10 Stoke have netted. Under 2.5 goals at 4/6 with Blue Square seems to be free money.
Everton welcome the Baggies on Saturday afternoon, buoyed after booking their trip to Wembley in midweek. Bizarrely, West Brom have picked up more points on the road (22) than Everton have won at home (21) which makes a mockery of the generally available 4/5 on the home side. West Brom are as big as 7/2 with Ladbrokes and that looks great value.
QPR have had serious disciplinary problems this season and if there’s a side that’s going to punish you at the moment, it is Arsenal. The Gunners have won their last seven in a row and will be confident of making it eight – even at 8/13 with Ladbrokes they are a fairly solid bet.
