There are two English Premier League matches taking place on Friday night and we take a look at each of them from a betting angle.
Let’s start with a look at the latest Outright Betting in the Premier league where Manchester City are trading as 7/20 favourites ahead of Liverpool at 13/2, you can get 12/1 Arsenal, 13/1 Tottenham and 20/1 and better the balance.
Aston Villa v Southampton – Click here to bet
Aston Villa are currently 17th on the table with only 1 win in their opening 6 games. Last time out they got a creditable 1-1 draw at home to Manchester City and that broke a run of 3 successive losses. Villa’s only win of the season came at home 2-1 against Everton and they have conceded a goal in their last 5 matches.
Southampton are currently 12th on the table with two victories in their opening 6 games, last time out they lost 1-0 away at Wolves and they have been a mixed bag on the road this season with a 4-1 defeat to Tottenham, but a 2-1 victory over Leicester.
Aston Villa won this fixture 4-0 last season and that coupled with the fact that I was very impressed with them against City has me lumping on them to pick up all 3 points here.
Suggested Bet: Aston Villa win at 11/10
Nottingham v Fulham – Click here to bet
Nottingham are currently sitting 2nd from bottom on the table with just 1 win in their opening 6 matches and they have only taken 1 point from the last 12 they have played for and are coming off 3 successive losses, the most recent a 3-2 defeat to Bournemouth at home. The other home matches were a 2-0 defeat to Tottenham and a 1-0 victory over West Ham.
Fulham are currently sitting 10th on the log with 2 wins and 2 draws in their opening 6 games. Their last match was a 2-1 defeat to Tottenham and both their victories this season have come at home. Over 2.5 goal backers would have collected in 5 of Fulham’s 6 matches and both teams to score, yes backers would also have profited in 5 of the 6 games.
I am going to go with the trend that Fulham games produce goals and I am going to bet that we get 3 or more in this one.
Suggested Bet: Over 2.5 goals at 17/20
