Arsenal versus WBA – Betting Preview

Posted by admin in Betting tips, Premier League

Arsenal came through for us again last week, winning 3-0 against Newcastle United, the same score as the result in Hull. With Everton losing on Saturday, there is no pressure on Arsenal, as they have secured 4th place and Champions League football. I still expect them to go for the win and get it.

West Brom aren’t exactly in trouble, despite being close to the relegation zone. Fulham and Cardiff both lost on Saturday and were relegated, and Norwich will surely be the team that joins them, as they have to play title chasing Chelsea at the Bridge and then Arsenal. I think West Brom may not play as hard for the win, but they will try to get a point.

So the Arsenal recovery continues, another win at home, against Newcastle, dominating and winning with some ease, 3-0 the final score. The return of Ramsey has really fired the team up, and with Ozil back too and Podolski netting regularly, it’s likely they will win their final 2 games of the season before tackling Hull in the FA Cup final.

West Brom have given up 3 goals in each of their games against Cardiff, Tottenham and Manchester City. Judging by those performances, their inability to hold a lead late in the game, it’s likely they will concede a few here.
Arsenal to win looks a banker, but with the pressure lifted I feel they can attack a bit more freely. Since losing to Aston Villa on the opening day of the season, Arsenal have turned the Emirates into a fortress, undefeated here in Premier League competition and of course that cracking FA Cup run. They should score a few goals, and I’m going to focus on who gets them.

I like Giroud to score here, but the man who is really driving Arsenal yet again is Aaron Ramsey. He’s score a few and is getting better with each game, and at the odds available I like him to get one of the 2 or 3 goals Arsenal should score.

Betting prediction for Fulham vs Newcastle United

Posted by admin in Betting tips, Premier League

Fulham welcomes Newcastle United in a match from the 30th round of the Barclays Premier League. Without any doubt for the hosts this is a crucial for their survival among the best in England match. Fulham currently ranks last in the league, with four points behind West Brom, which is on the 17th position. However, hardly the hosts could want a better opponent in such crucial moment, because Newcastle is not playing for anything in the championship, which is clearly visible by their last results.

After an excellent start the Alan Pardew’s players made a series of seven losses in their last 10 matches. However, It is important to note, that Newcastle took victories in their last two games, which indicates that they will not easily give up to the hosts. It is undoubtedly clear that the class of the visitors in this match is higher than the one of the home team’s players and their chances (if both teams play with equal motivation) would be higher.

This can be seen from the odds offered by the world bookmakers who suggest very equal match with a slight advantage for the visitors of Newcastle. Bet at home offers odds for an away win of 2.3, while William Hill and bet365 offer 2.4. The draw offers are between 3.3 and 3.5,while the chances for Fulham to grab the win are highest rated by Bet at home – 3.

The motivation in this kind of matches is generally one of the leading factors and I would not be surprised Fulham to win this match. The higher odds for that to happen allow a good bet on Draw no bet. William Hill offers odds for such bet on 2.05. I fully believe that such match in the long run won’t be lost by relegation-threatened team in more than half of the cases and that is why I will make a bet for a DNB win for Fulham.

Again, I’m not sure that this bet will be successful, but I do know that the chances for the host not to lose this match are bigger than 50%.
