Good morning all!
2nd weekend of the season – so lets hope the luck improves and simply anything goes our way today! All week its been a case of close misses and red cards that have ultimately cost us in terms of each day – and we are on a knife edge with 2 winning NAP’s from 4, so two wins in the next two days will make it look a little better.
I posted a preview very early this morning highlighting the 10 games I would be selecting my tips from this weekend – which you can see by clicking here. From the 5 I selected for today, here are my four that I have gone with:
1. Swansea-Newcastle BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 5/4 (Premier League, 1500 KO – NAP)
This game usually provides a lot of goals. The last three have ended 3-2, 2-2 and 2-1, but this time around Newcastle seem to have greatly improved with some quality players and a coach who likes to get the ball on the floor and actually play football (the polar opposite to Alan Pardew. Swansea and Garry Monk are much of the same, and with a forward three that includes Montero, Andre Ayew and Bafe Gomis – they are going to provide a huge threat to a still-iffy looking NUFC back four. Wijnaldum, Aarons, De Jong, Sissoko and Cisse are just a few of the threats Newcastle have, with the maverick Alex Mitrovic coming off the bench. This really should he a hugely high scoring games. Both drew 2-2 in the opening game, and were playing Southampton and Chelsea, so not poor sides!
2. Watford-West Brom BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 6/4 (Premier League, 1500 KO)
Watford surprised a few, scoring two and drawing against a strong Everton side. Despite a big squad, some of their players look very good from what I could see. Vydra and Ighalo are a threat up front, while for West Brom they have new signing Salomon Rondon to fit into a side that includes Saido Berahino and Ricky Lambert in the striker position. Both look good going forward, but will struggle in terms of how many they concede.
3. Gillingham Draw No Bet @ 11/10 vs Port Vale (League One, 1500 KO)
Gillingham shocked a lot of people by thrashing league favourites Sheff Utd 4-0, and also beat Plymouth 2-1 in the Cup. Port Vale have a very poor looking squad, and drew their first game 0-0 to Crewe, another relegation candidate. Remie Streete – a key defender for them, went off after 45 in the cup and looks to be either unfit or injured. Going forward they lack a goalscorer, while Gillingham have a very good lineup with Cody McDonald and Bradley Dack both in great form. They should win this, and at 2/1 in the match odds they are hugely overpriced.
4. Leyton Orient Win @ 11/10 vs Dag & Red (League Two, 1500 KO)
Orient have a very good looking squad and won their first league game 2-0 while D & R lost 3-0 in the league and 4-1 in the cup and look a team that will struggle this season. 11/10 looks a decent price for the win – something I really like for today!
NAP: 1 @ 5/4
Double: 1 + 3 @ 4/1
Treble: 1-3 @ 11/1
Accumulator: 1-4 @ 24/1
