Pete Nordsted delivered a winner in his last column and he's looking to the Premier League for both his selections this weekendWell last weekend we came very close to landing a double when Villarreal kept a clean sheet away at Levante but we were later denied when 10-man Rayo Vallecano scored late in the second half at home to Espanyol.
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 both our selections are from the Premier League where we go to a London derby when West Ham take on Fulham and then to the other end of the table where Manchester City host Swansea City.
This Saturday, Upton Park features a match between two struggling London sides both of whom are desperate for points.
Sam Allardyce’s West Ham team have now only registered two wins this season and have not won at home since the opening day of the season when they defeated promoted Cardiff 2-0.
When facing teams of Fulham’s stature at home both teams have scored in only three of 10 matches and indeed this season in the Hammers’ opening six home games both teams have found the back of the net on only two occasions.
In the case of Fulham, manager Martin Jol is many bookmakers favourite to be the next Premier League manager to lose his job and the Cottagers now occupy a bottom three place level on points with Saturday’s opposition.
The stats are strong for Fulham with the "NO" outcome in the both teams to score market being seen in 11 of their last 14 away games and in six of their last eight away to teams of West Ham’s stature.
Here the "NO" outcome on both teams to score can be backed at Evens (2.00) with Paddy Power and this looks to offer some value.
For our second match we head over to the Etihad Stadium for a Sunday fixture where an in-form Manchester City take on Swansea.
Here we have some very strong stats and Manuel Pellegrini’s side have won all nine of their recent victories to teams of Swansea’s stature to nil and indeed Michael Laudrup’s side have now lost five of their last seven defeats to the Premier League elite sides to nil.
Here Manchester City can be backed at can be backed at 11/10 (2.10) to win to nil or the "NO" outcome on both teams to score can be backed at 5/6 (1.83) with bet365 which fits our criteria.
