Pete landed yet another double last week meaning it's not seven winners from eight selections and he has two more picks in mind for this weekend's Premier League actionWell last weekend we again had a winning double and this now makes us seven winning bets from the opening eight selections which is a great start to the season. Let’s hope our good run continues as we look to the Premier League this weekend for our two selections
Here we are following a system bet and you are advised to keep stakes reasonable and always try and obtain the best price available.
This weekend we begin with table topping Liverpool who are taking on a Southampton side who have made an average start to the season.
Brendon Rodgers’ side have a very average record when playing teams of Southampton’s stature that reads won three, drawn four and lost three and they certainly do not represent great value at their current price of 1/2 (1.50) to win the game with Paddy Power.
However, it should also be pointed out that when Southampton have faced teams of Liverpool’s grading away from home their record reads a poor won none, drawn none and lost three.
Of more interest is certainly the “NO” selection on both teams to score as both teams have found the net in only three of Liverpools last 15 home games and in only three of the Reds last 10 at home to teams of Southampton’s stature.
In the case of Mauricio Pochettino’s side the stats are not as strong but both teams haven’t scored in six of their last seven away games and also we have seen that three of both Liverpool’s and Southampton’s opening four matches have seen either one or no team finding the back of the net.
The stats above are strong and this makes the 10/11 (1.91) offered by William Hill on the “NO” on both teams to score look very good value.
Next we move to the North East where we find an in form Newcastle taking on Steve Bruce’s Hull.
Alan Pardew’s side have a fairly strong home record when facing the bottom rankled sides which reads won six, drawn three and lost one and in these 10 matches both teams have scored in only four.
In the case of Hull we have to dig into the stats from the last time they were in the Premier League but when away to teams of Newcastle’s stature then both teams found the back of the net in only three of 10 away matches.
As with the first game we have seen that three of both Newcastle’s and Hull’s opening four matches have seen either one or no team finding the back of the net.
The “NO” option on both teams to score can be backed at 5/6 (1.83) with Paddy Power and this again looks to offer some decent value.
