Premiership Preview – Christmas 2012
This entry was posted on Tuesday, December 25th, 2012
After the attempt on Robin Van Persie’s life at the Liberty Stadium last weekend, let’s simply make one request for Santa – that everyone gets through the festive period safe and sound. Ahead of us after all, is the most anticipated date on the football calendar – Boxing Day. Wahey!! And boo to the tube striking rotters!!!
Fulham continued to live up to their reputation of being disappointing on their travels, with their supine performance at Anfield. However, back at Craven Cottage we think they will have too much for Southampton. It’s 17/20 with Bet365 that they take all three points.
Queens Park Rangers are yet to convince us that they’ve got enough to avoid relegation and despite finally winning in their last home game, we can’t see how they are priced-up as 5/4 favourites to beat a West Brom side that took care of in-form Norwich on Saturday. Lay The Hoops at 2.3 on the exchanges. Chris Brunt has three goals on his last four visits to Loftus Road, and he’s 5/1 with Blue Square to score at any time.
Stoke have conceded just 13 goals all season, are unbeaten in their last 15 home Premier League games, and yet they are as big as 23/10 with Bet365 to beat Liverpool on Boxing Day. Our advice is to back Under 2.5 goals at 4/6 with Blue Square, and to lay Liverpool at 2.3 on Betfair.
Chelsea are starting to move through the gears, and whilst we don’t expect another eight-goal haul when they travel to Carrow Road, we suspect they will take home all three points. Norwich are usually good for a goal and their last seven matches in all competitions have seen both sides score, which we suggest backing at 8/11 with Bet365.
