Our Degsy cannot believe anybody is offering 11/10 for Sergio Aguero to score anytime against anybody right now. And he keeps making money on Aaron Ramsey...
Degsy fancies Man United at 17/10 to beat Spurs while he's also tipping a big win for Liverpool against Hull. Meanwhile, Olivier Giroud is tipped to add to his tally...
Manchester United v Crystal Palace
Man United have lost a bit of momentum after a home draw with Chelsea was followed up by a 1-0 defeat at Liverpool the other week. However I'd be shocked if they failed to pick up three points here and so would the men fond of wearing camel coats, with the hosts no bigger than 2/9 for a win. The Eagles of course pulled off a shock 2-1 win over the Red Devils in the Carling Cup a few years back (albeit after extra-time) and if you fancy a similar result today you can be accommodated at 40/1. I see this as being pretty one-sided. Robin Van Persie has scored seven goals in six appearances in all competitions so far this term and he will again be the focal point at Old Trafford, where 13/5 about the Dutchie scoring two or more (a feat he has achieved against Andorra, Swansea and Wigan) looks plenty fair.
Betting: Van Persie to score 2+ goals at 13/5 (Sky Bet)
Aston Villa v Newcastle United
The Geordies are set for a winter of discontent. They may have edged past Fulham at home last time out but their away form remains a worry (just two wins last season) and their squad is arguably weaker this term. Villa, bolstered by the form of Andreas Weimann and Christian Benteke look to have really turn things around and I can see them doing a real job on the Mags in this one.
Betting: Aston Villa 'to win both halves' at 6/1 (Coral/Paddy Power)
Fulham v West Brom
There have been over 2.5 goals in five of Fulham's last six home games in the Premier League. So in the immortal words of Champ Kind... "Whammy".
Betting: Over 2.5 goals at evens (bet365)
Hull City v Cardiff City
Hull have apparently attempted fewer shots on goal than any other side in the PL this season with a p*ss poor 16. The Bluebirds have only managed 20 themselves, according to my source, an elderly gentleman in The Kings Arms who drinks 16 pints of Guinness a day and who might give the worst rendition of Erasure classic A Little Respect ever heard on karaoke. This is a fixture probably best swerved but if pushed I like Cardiff at 9/4 to spring a mild surprise on Humberside.
Betting: Cardiff City to beat Hull City at 9/4 (Bet Victor)
Stoke City v Manchester City
Mark Hughes has yet to record a win against Manchester City since being given the bullet (three defeats and a draw). The Citizens are three points off the pace after three games and were stunned by Cardiff the other week. I feel they can bag their first win on the road here though and quite like the look of Manuel Pellegrini's men getting it done 3-1 against a Stoke side who are trying to play football a bit more than they have in recent years.
Betting: Manchester City to win 3-1 at 14/1 (Coral/Ladbrokes)
Sunderland v Arsenal
The Gunners have a good record on Wearside and will have their backers at 8/11 with Mesut Ozil almost certain to start. Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshire should also be fit but Arsenal do have a lengthy injury list at the minute and don't look watertight at the back. With this in mind I'll be jumping on the 10/11 that both teams find the net at the Stadium of Light.
Betting: Both teams to score at 10/11 (Hills)
Tottenham v Norwich City
Spurs should win this at a canter and if they do, expect Robert Soldado to be in the thick of it. He's bagged four goals in four games so far and only failed to fondle the old onion bag against Arsenal. Evens about 'The Soldier' scoring in this one looks a spot of value considering the same bet is as short at 4/7 in places.
Betting: Soldado to score anytime at evens (Betfred/totepsort)
Everton v Chelsea
Plenty of Everton fans have been enraged by Bobby Martinez's recent transfer dealings, and in particular bringing a spate of Wigan Athletic players to the club. This is the same Wigan Athletic who were relegated last season. The tall geezer who looks like that one off The Strokes has also exited via the M62, and it's clear that all is not well at Goodison. The Toffees remain undefeated, but languish in fifteenth spot after three draws. I personally think Chelsea are huge value here at 13/10. They can go top of the league with a win on Saturday, and Senor Mourinho knows how to send a side out to win on Merseyside. Man-for-man they are by far the better team, and have the creativity to unlock Everton's stubborn rearguard. Payday for me this Friday, and I intend to have my biggest football bet of the season on Chelsea. in fact, I'd be astonished if I am not moon-walking round the pub in just my underpants throwing Jaeger Bombs about by 7pm on Saturday evening.
Betting: Chelsea to beat Everton at 13/10 (bet365/Coral/Bet Victor)
Southampton v West Ham
I have been impressed with Southampton this term and see them as 'good things' to see off West ham in Sunday's only game. The Hammers are a handful at home but it's a different story on the road, where Big Sam's men often flatter to deceive. I see a few goals in this one but ultimately reckon the Saints will go marching in to claim all three points.
Betting: Southampton to win to nil at 9/4 (Sky Bet)
Degsy...please pick Saints for Liverpool-Southampton game. please..... Its not Sturridge or Coutinho but you who is responsible for our good run. - Your fan.- IndianScouser
