CORRECT SCORE specialists Daniel McCulloch (@danmcc84) delivers his best bets from Saturday’s Premier League card.
Leicester v Hull | Saturday 15:00
Pricing Leicester matches involving Leicester must have been a difficult job for the bookies in the last couple of months.
Their demeanour – until last week – has suggested that they are relegation certainties, history tells you they are the current league champions and the performance metrics suggest that they should be halfway up the table!
Their price this weekend certainly suggests the latter, as they are odds-on across the board against a Hull side who look more than capable of maintaining their Premier League status.
Given that four of Marco Silva’s six games as Hull manager have come against sides currently in the top-six, it is hard to back this one up with stats but I simply fancy the East Yorkshire side to get something at The King Power Stadium this weekend.
Given the run of games he has had, eight points is a great return and with the pace they possess going forward, I can see them creating plenty of chances against Leicester’s ageing backline.
BetVictor are offering 13/2 on the 1-1 correct score and I am more than happy to take that.
Stoke v Middlesbrough | Saturday 15:00
Middlesbrough’s inability to score goals ensured a winner for this column last week, so I am trying my luck again this weekend.
The Teesiders have now lost four of their 13 away matches by a single goal to nil so it is no surprise that that 1-0 to Stoke is a best price of 11/2 (BetStars).
Stoke have just one victory by this scoreline this season but they have recorded three 2-0 victories, all against sides currently in the bottom-half of the table. With that in mind I will put half my stake on 2-0 to The Potters at 8/1 with BetStars.
Swansea v Burnley | Saturday 15:00
It’s been a few weeks before I have tipped this one up but a home game against Burnley offers the perfect opportunity for this one to finally land!
At the time of writing only BetVictor are offering a price (22/1) so have a browse before placing this bet as hopefully there will be 28/1 plus come midday!
