I’ve got to say, I’m getting rather fed up with West Brom. Two weeks running those bouncing Baggies have shafted me. First getting a draw against Tottenham and then beating a (supposedly) superior Birmingham last week. Don’t they know that when they come up they’re supposed to go straight back down? What are they playing at? Bloody Roberto Di Matteo and his ambition to stay in the top flight!
So yes last week’s bet failed. I correctly said that Sunderland would get a draw against Arsenal but West Brom winning their derby with Birmingham meant my weekend was soured somewhat.
Onto a new weekend of football and another chance to win our money back though eh? The compulsive gamblers philosophy is that.
So here’s this week’s bet….
Manchester City vs. Chelsea HOME WIN 12/5 and Liverpool vs. Sunderland DRAW 3/1
This double will get you, incredibly, just short of 13/1.
Despite City having a few defensive injury worries the odds were just too good at 12/5 to not have a punt on them. They’ve got home advantage, a great amount of threat with Tevez, Silva, Adebayor, Johnson etc. They’ve got Joe Hart in goal capable of winning a game on his own. And Chelsea is missing Frank Lampard again. If I had to pick one side to win it would of course be Chelsea on the form they’re in. But like I said, at 12/5 City is definitely worth gambling on.
I was absolutely astounded when I saw Liverpool were 1/2 to beat Sunderland. Their form is poor, Torres is out of sorts and Sunderland deservedly got a draw against a stronger Arsenal side last week. It’s no secret Sunderland aren’t the best travellers, but I fancied them to do well last week and I fancy them to do well this week.
For Christ’s sake give me a bit of luck this weekend!
Good luck gambling and no I don’t reimburse you if you put the bet on and it loses 🙂
