Tomorrow - 26 April 2019

19:45 - Liverpool v Huddersfield

Liverpool to win -3 @ 6/5

For a side embroiled in such a tense title battle, a match at home against Premier League whipping boys Huddersfield offers the perfect bit of respite. It could well be a case of men against boys at Anfield as the two sides are separated by a real gulf in abilities. While the Terriers have lost 12 of their last 13 league matches, Liverpool are enjoying a run of six consecutive victories on the bounce.

Liverpool do have to travel to Barcelona in midweek but a five day rest will encourage Jurgen Klopp not to take his foot of the gas for this match. Although a rotated side wouldn’t have any issues collecting three points, the chance to bolster their goal difference is not something the Reds will want to pass up. Huddersfield were brushed to one side 4-0 by a half-strengthen Tottenham during their last away match, and a similarly emphatic defeat would be absolute no surprise here.

Saturday - 27 April 2019

12:30 - Tottenham v West Ham

Tottenham to win to nil @ 13/8

Tottenham are yet to concede at their new 62,062 seater stadium and it’s a run you have to fancy remaining intact here. This Saturday Mauricio Pochettino’s men take on city rivals West Ham who have long struggled to find the net away from home. The Irons have managed to score just twice in their last eight league tests outside the London Stadium, in part due to Marko Arnautovic’s large dip in form in recent months.

Brighton were mere minutes away from holding Spurs to a goalless draw on Tuesday night so you might be asking if this is something the Hammers can successfully pull off. While they’d be happy to take a point from this match, their defensive vulnerability is likely to see the hosts draw blood in this match. Lucas Fabianski is without an away clean sheet this side of Christmas while Spurs have only failed to score in one of their last 10 matches.

13:30 - Millwall v Stoke City

Draw @ 5/2

Tom Edwards’ leveller against Norwich on Monday night reinforced Stoke’s reputation as the draw specialists of the Championship. The Potters have shared the spoils in nine of their last 13 matches, five of which have finished goalless. There’s no questioning their fighting spirit under boss Nathan Jones but a lack of quality upfront is something that has often prevented them turning draws into victories.

A 21st league draw of the season is one that looks very much on the cards here with Millwall rather finding themselves in the same position of late. The Lions have tied three of their last four matches, the only exception being a loss away versus an unstoppable Aston Villa. Having otherwise matched teams higher up the table such as Brentford and Sheffield Utd, there’s every reason to think the relegation-threatened side can push Stoke all the way here.

17:15 - Sheffield United v Ipswich

Sheffield -1 @ 8/15

Back to back victories for Sheffield United combined with two successive defeats for Leeds has put the Blades within touching distance of a Premier League return. All Chris Wilder’s men need to end their 12 year absence from the English top flight is one more victory and it’s one that that will surely come this weekend. Not only do they boast the best home record in the division but they are up against a side lying rock bottom of the table.

Ipswich have rarely shown Championship quality this season and the recruitment of Paul Lambert has well and truly failed to see an upturn in results. The Tractor Boys have won just once since mid-January as they continue to put their faith in many of their academy graduates. While this sets them up well for their future in League One, their inexperience will condemn them to another straightforward loss here.

17:30 - Brighton v Newcastle United

Under 1.5 goals @ 7/4

After failing to score for seven successive matches and recording just eight shots on target in this time, Brighton are unlikely to put on a show down on the south coast this weekend. A lack of goals is not a major concern for Chris Hughton whose only priority is picking up points. A backs to the wall display earned his men a draw against Wolves and they were minutes away from one against Spurs following an equally ultra-defensive display.

Seemingly content on grinding out a draw, and quite capable when it comes to doing so, this match looks destined to be a low scoring affair. Newcastle showed plenty of attacking creativity against Southampton last weekend but the Saints took far more liberties at the back than Brighton will. Playing away from home will also limit the Magpies threat as they’ve found the net just four times in their last six tests outside Tyneside.

19:30 - Norwich v Blackburn

Pukki to score anytime @ 4/7

After such a strong campaign, Norwich have just begun to stumble a little as they approach the finishing line. Four successive draws have only delayed, rather than cancelled, the promotion party though, with the Canaries needing just one more point to make certain of their Premier League return. On paper they should be able to get more than a draw from this match but Blackburn are very much a side in form, winning their last four matches on the trot.

Recent displays from Tony Mowbray’s side rather take appeal away from a Norwich win which is available at odds of just 4/11. Better markets are available as a result, one of them being Teemu Pukki to score anytime. The Finnish striker leads the way at the top of the Championship scoring charts after firing in four goals in his last five matches. Blackburn are without a clean sheet in eight away matches so back the former Brondby man to edge closer to the 30-goal mark.

Sunday - 28 April 2019

12:00 - Leeds United v Aston Villa

Aston Villa to win @ 7/2

This could well end up being a rehearsal for the play-off final so it’ll be interesting to see how things play out at Elland Road. Leeds certainly could do with a morale-boosting win after seeing their automatic promotion hopes all but ended. Four defeats in their last seven matches has seen Marcelo Bielsa’s men relinquish their spot in the top two and they only have their bad finishing to blame. During the four losses, the Yorkshire side had a combined 80 efforts on goal but scored just once.

While Leeds continue to display an absence of a clinical edge, this is certainly not a fault of Aston Villa. The promotion hopefuls have hit 21 goals during an incredible 10-match winning streak, a new club record. Dean Smith’s players look capable of beating absolutely anyone in the Championship right now so odds of 7/2 on them making it win number 11 are far too good to refuse.

14:05 - Burnley v Manchester City

Burnley to win +3 goals @ 8/13

Many saw Wednesday’s Manchester derby as being the last real opportunity for Man City to drop points but plenty of work remains for the title favourites. It would be foolish to think an away trip to Burnley will be a walk in the park despite their odds of 1/7 to win. Pep Guardiola has not had an easy time of things on his previous Turf Moor trips, winning the first game 2-1 and drawing the next 1-1.

Things won't be made any easier this time by the injuries of Kevin De Bruyne and possibly Fernandinho who hurt his knee at Old Trafford in midweek. Burnley will not be offering a helping hand either given their fine form of late. The Clarets have collected 10 points from the last possible 12, enough to guarantee their Premier League status. Full of confidence, Sean Dyche’s physically robust side can be a real handful for anyone, making them exceptionally priced with a generous handicap.

16:30 - Manchester United v Chelsea

Draw @ 23/10

Those of you hoping for a memorable high stakes affair between two teams desperately fighting for a place in the top four are likely to be disappointed. United approach the game bereft of confidence having lost seven of their last nine matches, their worst run of form since 1962. Initially so free scoring at the start of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer tenure, the Red Devils have now completely lost their way, going nearly 9 hours without a goal from open play.

It's undoubtedly a fantastic time for a trip to Old Trafford but Chelsea don't look capable of fully capitalising on the situation. Their away form against bigger teams this season has been a real thorn in their side. Just once have Maurizio Sarri's men avoided defeat against top half opposition this season, across all competitions. It’s a true case of a stoppable force meeting a very moveable object so it’s easy to see both teams sharing the spoils on Sunday.

Football Bets

Our tips and predictions mainly focus on a few core bets. Chances are you're already familiar with these, but here's a quick run down just in case:

  • Win/Draw/Win - The simplest bet you can make... who will win the match?
  • HT/FT - The odds for the WDW markets are often quite low, especially when one team is heavily favoured. The halft-time/full-time market offers an opportunity to boost the odds by selecitng the result for both half time and the final whistle.
  • Handicap Betting - Another way to increase the odds on the match result is to add a handicap. For example, Arsenal -2 means that they effectively start the match at -2, meaning they need two goals more than the other team to draw and three more to win. 
  • Both Teams to Score - Originating in the Goals Galore market from Betfred, both teams to score has become incredibly popular. They frequently show up in accumulators and with odds usually below evens it's easy to see why. Other variations you may see in our tips are both teams not to score (BTTS No - where one or both teams won't score) and BTTS + Win, where the winner of the match is picked alongside the BTTS bet.
  • Over/Under - Another bet that's along the same lines as BTTS are over/under bets. Except here you're predicting whether the totaly number of goals will be above or below a target figure. The most comon example is 2.5 goals, although you can place these bets on a wide range of numbers. You can even bet on over 0.5 goals if you think it's going to be anything other than a 0-0 draw.
  • Correct Score - To really boost the odds, head to the correct score market. It's a hard bet to predict but it sometimes has value.
  • Goalscorer - You wont see these bets too frequently in our tips, but they do crop up from time to time if the value offered is good. Here we're picking who will score, either first, last or at any point in the match. For matches with a heavy favourite and a strong striker you may even see something along the lines of "Ronaldo to score two or more goals".
