As always, here we are following a system bet and you are advised to keep stakes reasonable and always try to obtain the best price available.
This weekend, we again stay in the Premier League where we focus on a couple of sides who still need points to guarantee their Premier League survival, as Paulo Di Canio’s Sunderland face fellow strugglers Southampton in a vital match taking place at the Stadium of Light on Sunday afternoon.
The hosts have a reasonable record when facing teams of the Saints’ standing and they are undefeated at home against the bottom sides in nine matches, having won six and drawn three.
In these nine matches both teams did not find the net on seven occasions. Indeed, in general, both teams have only scored in six of Sunderland’s last 15 home games.
Southampton looked to have improved under new manager Mauricio Pochettino following his arrival and have seen recent home victories against Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool. However, they have now not won in four matches and the recent defeats against West Bromwich Albion and Tottenham have now left them looking over their shoulders.
The Saints’ away record to teams of Sunderland’s grading reads won one, drawn three and lost two and both teams did not find the net in three of the six matches.
The “NO” outcome on both teams to score can be backed at 10/11 (1.91) with bet365.
For our second match we move over to Old Trafford where there will be an emotional farewell to Sir Alex Ferguson when Champions Manchester United take on Capital One Cup winners Swansea.
Since winning at Wembley, Michael Laudrup’s side have rarely got out of second gear and when Swansea have faced the Premier League’s elite sides their away record reads won one, drawn none and lost six with both teams scoring in only one of these matches.
Manchester United have a great home record to teams of Swansea’s stature which reads won nine, drawn none and lost one and if you are feeling a little braver Manchester United can be backed at 6/5 (2.20) again with bet365 to win to nil.
Otherwise the "NO" outcome on the both teams to score market can be backed at 5/6 (1.83) with bet365.
