Our Asian Handicap man @DarkDyson has pinpointed three bets in the Premier League this weekend.
West Ham v Man City | Saturday 12:45 | BT Sport 1
The Hammers are in cracking form at the moment and should relish the test of hosting the champions Man City in the Saturday lunchtime game. Although, City have been much better away from home so far this season than last, the demoralising capitulation from 2-0 up in Moscow on Tuesday, can only bolster West Ham’s confidence heading into the match.
West Ham +1 is priced up at a juicy 20/19 with BetVictor and with that sort of value available on a team that’s bang in form, I’m happy to take on Pellegrini’s men this weekend. Even a defeat by one goal, will see our stake returned and I’m sure this will prove to be a close match in the end.
Liverpool v Hull City | Saturday 15:00
Despite Liverpool currently suffering through PSSD (post Suarez stress disorder), they’re actually undefeated in their last three league games. However, they used up a few seasons worth of luck against QPR last time out and I doubt Hull City will be anywhere near as accommodating this weekend.
Hull have only won one of their last six but having scored in every match this season and coming off a great performance at the Emirates last week, they can cause plenty of problems for a Liverpool defence which looks disjointed at best.
Again the value is on the underdog, Hull +1 at 25/19 with BetVictor appeals, and with Sturridge still injured any draw here will see a full win for our bet.
Tottenham v Newcastle | Sunday 13:30
I’m not sure how Alan Pardew is still manager of Newcastle. Ok, they managed to get their first win of the season last week but this is nothing more than papering over the cracks for me.
While Spurs haven’t yet reached a level of consistency which could bring Champions League football back to White Hart Lane, they’re have been some encouraging signs for them to build on.
Despite playing (and winning comfortably) on Thursday night, I expect them to have too much quality for Newcastle and the 41/40 available with Bet365 on the North Londoners -0.75 is solid value.
