FBI Column: Deconstructing the Weekend’s Football Odds

Premier League Treble

MAN CITY v Queens Park Rangers, West Ham v FULHAM, SWANSEA v Sunderland

A £10 bet with Coral returns £67.37 for a win

Man City are very short priced in their game, I only put that one in because there is a lot of good matches this weekend that would be a bit of a risk to put into the treble, such as  West Brom v our boys, Wigan v Stoke and Liverpool v Arsenal.

West Ham v Fulham could be a tough one, but new faces Mladen Petric and Hugo Rodallega look promising for Fulham. Damien Duff scored in their last game and Bryan Ruiz is looking sharp too.

Swansea have taken the Premier League by storm in their first 2 games, winning 5-0 and 3-0. Their new manager Michael Laudrup looks to be working miracles, so I have tipped his side to beat Sunderland.

Goalscorer Treble:

Michu, Carlos Tevez and Shinji Kagawa all to score would return you £76.61 from a £5 bet. However if you are unsure on Kagawa and would rather play safe on Robin van Persie, £5 could return £42.56 from StanJames.

Best Of The Rest:

A 2-0 Fulham win over West Ham boasts a generous price of 14/1, as does the 15/4 offered for in-form new boy Santi Cazorla to score at anytime against Liverpool. In the same game as the latter, you can get 7/1 for highly-rated Olivier Giroud to score first as he looks to break his early duck. Rickie Lambert to score at any time v Manchester United looks great at 3/1 as well.

Saturday Treble:

Over 2.5 goals: West Brom v Everton, Swansea v Sunderland, Man City v QPR. A £10 bet with Ladbrokes could get you £60.14.

Sunday Double:

Newcastle to beat Aston Villa 1-0 and Man United to beat Southampton 2-1, just a fiver bet with Coral could bag you (drum roll please) £318.75!

Weekend Longshot

My weekend longshot came in last week and would have got you £286.60 from a £5 bet! Everyone knows punter’s luck comes in runs so this weekend’s longshot is below, I’d put a few quid on if I were you!

3 draws: Leeds v Blackburn, Nottingham Forest v Charlton, Liverpool v Arsenal. A £5 stake could return you up to £222.44!
