A very good day Friday – 2 wins from 3, and the one that didn’t I have no clue how, with over 20 shots, majority of possession and multiple missed chances. Bohemians won 2-0, meaning the win or draw @ 1/1 came in, while Paderborn as stated could score or concede 3 against anyone, and duly obliged – conceding 3 2nd half goals to Rostock.
Anyway – onto today’s football. Tonnes of value around the English leagues, with our tips coming in the top three divisions:
(1) Swansea vs Liverpool: Liverpool -1 Goal Handicap @ 21/20 (1245 KO, Premier League – NAP)
(2) Brentford vs Wigan: Brentford Win @ 1/1 (1500 KO, Championship)
(3) Port Vale vs Coventry: Port Vale Win @ 5/4 (1500 KO, League One)
(4) Leeds vs Barnsley: Barnsley Over 1.5 Team Goals @ 7/4 (1500 KO, Championship)
For a start – we have Liverpool, in fine form and taking teams apart – 24 goals in their 8 games so far, including 11 in their last 3 – with wins over Hull, Leicester and Chelsea. Swansea on the other hand won their opener against Burnley, and have not won since, and they/Guidolin are under huge pressure from the fans, while the manager is probably worried about his job. I can only see them losing today.
Next up – Brentford – in excellent form, 4 wins and a draw in their 5 home games – and like Liverpool scoring for fun. They face a Wigan side who have lost all 5 away games. Home advantage is huge as you can imagine, so for this one I really think Brentford will prevail.
Port Vale are the 3rd tip – 4 wins from 4 at home and plenty scored, with only two conceded. They face Coventry, who are winless on the road, with a draw and 3 losses so far this season. Much like above I can see form and confidence winning it for the home team.
Lastly, a Yorkshire derby! Leeds vs Barnsley – and a tale of two different sides. Leeds are struggling for goals, but keeping them out. 12 conceded in 10 games, and just 5 at home, scoring only 5 however. Barnsley on the other side of things are knocking them in for fun – 2nd top scorers in the league behind Newcastle with 20, and 14 conceded. Up until the last three games, they have been in the top 2/3 teams in the league. Big game, local derby – one of them will crack, and with a strong forward lineup and no real expectancy, I think Barnsley will rack up 2-3 goals – Adam Armstrong and Conor Hourihane two very good reasons why!
NAP: Liverpool -1 Goal @ 21/20
Double: Brentford Win @ 1/1 + Liverpool -1 Goal @ 21/20 = 3.2/1
Treble: 1-3 @ 7.5/1
Accumulator: 1-4 @ 25/1
