Pete tipped another winner in his last column and is returning to the Premier League with a couple of selections for this weekend's actionLast weekend we made a very small profit with Hertha Berlin keeping a clean sheet in a 2-0 victory at Braunschweig. However, once again Liverpool let us down by conceding an own goal at home to West Ham, spoiling the chance of landing another double for the season.
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 turn to the Premier League for both selections, with in-form Everton hosting Fulham and Norwich playing Swansea.
Roberto Martinez will be extremely encouraged by his Everton side's recet form, which, in the past week, has seen them beat Manchester United at Old Trafford and take a point from top-of-the-table Arsenal at the Emirates.
This weekend they are taking on a Fulham side who are now under the stewardship of Rene Meulensteen and that won their first game in seven when beating Aston Villa 2-0 at Craven Cottage last Sunday. In this fixture, Everton have been completely dominant and have won all five of the recent head-to-head meetings.
Looking at the both teams to score stats, this looks to be a promising opportunity. When facing teams of Everton’s stature away from home, both teams have found the net in only two of Fulham’s last 10 away games and, in the case of Everton, both teams have failed to score in nine of their last 12 home matches.
For those of a bolder nature, Everton can be backed at 6/5 (2.20) with Paddy Power to win to nil. Otherwise the “NO” selection in the both teams to score market can be backed at 4/5 (1.80) with the same firm.
For our second match, we head over to Carrow Road, where coach Chris Houghton will have breathed a sigh of relief after his Norwich side took three points off West Bromwich Albion last weekend.
When looking at the stats for this game, we can see that in both sides’ last 10 respective home and away games against similar opposition, 13 of the 20 matches saw both sides failing to find the back of the net.
Indeed, in the case of Michael Laudrup’s Swansea side, six of their seven away games this season have only seen one side scoring. Here the “NO” selection on the both teams to score market can be backed at 11/10 (2.10) with Paddy Power and this looks to offer some value.
