Wigan Athletic play host to 11-time Premier League champions Manchester United, and a quick look at the record books doesn't look good for Wigan with 12 games against United resulting in 12 defeats.

However, I think it could be a good time to play United, as this week they have had a difficult Champions League midweek match away to Marseille, and I am sure they will also be looking ahead to two massive away games at Chelsea and Liverpool before the second leg against the French side.

Sir Alex could use this game as an opportunity to rest some of his so-called 'star' players. If he does, then perhaps Wigan might be able to get something from this game.

Match Odds: Wigan 6.25, Draw 4.0, Man Utd 1.45


Tips: Back both teams to score @ 1.90 / Back draw @ 4.0 Bet Now

Result: Napoli 1-0 Catania (Zuniga)

Manchester City have won their last six games in all competitions at Eastlands, and the return of Mark Hughes should not really pose Roberto Mancini much trouble with Fulham only winning once away from home all season.

This fixture is heavily biased towards goals. Both teams have scored in the last 13 meetings; ten of which finished with three goals or more. Dzeko and Tevez are starting to show signs of an improving partnership and pushing Kolarov further up the pitch might prove fruitful.

Manchester City's last four matches at home have yielded an average of 5.25 goals and goals should be expected again on Sunday.

Match Odds: Man City 1.44, Draw 3.75, Fulham 7.0


Tip: Over 2.5 goals @ 1.90Bet Now

Most Recent Tip:  QPR to beat Preston
Result: Preston 1-1 QPR

We seem to be guaranteed goals anytime Blackpool play. They had a great victory during the week beating Tottenham 3-1. Their attack minded formation and daring approach ensures they are always likely to score and concede.

Anyone backing the both teams to score market in their home matches this season has not lost yet. They travel to a Wolves team this weekend still feeling sore over the concession of a late goal against West Brom. Expect an entertaining match with both teams scoring.

Match Odds: Wolves 1.83, Draw 3.50, Blackpool 3.75


Tip: Over 2.5 goals @ 1.65 Bet Now

Most Recent Tip: Charlton -0.75
Result: Charlton 1-3 Exeter

Rochdale are in great form at the moment, unbeaten in their last ten league games, while it is worth mentioning that they are also unbeaten in their last five games played away from home. They've also been steadily climbing up the table in recent weeks and now they are just  four points behind a play off spot. 

Walsall have been engaged in a relegation battle since the start of the season and their fortunes haven't changed since: They have managed just one clean sheet at home and just three in total so far this season, opportunities that Rochale should snap up.

Match Odds: Walsall 2.37, Draw 3.30, Rochdale 2.65


Tip: Rochdale level ball @ 2.10 Bet Now

Most Recent Tips: Three draws between Stockport - Macclesfield, Northampton - Aldershot & Gillingham - Bury
Results: Stockport 1-4 Macclesfield, Northampton 1-1 Aldershot, Gillingham 1-1 Bury

Last weekend the leap down to League Two proved profitable with draws at Northampton and Gillingham. So far this season we have hit the 30-point profit mark and have reached last year's total. Let's hope our run continues as we go back to the Premier League this weekend.
 
The match with the biggest draw bias is Wolves v Blackpool.

The record of teams of Wolves grading against teams of Blackpool's grading reads W11 D12 L5. Wolves recent home record against teams of Blackpool's grading is W2 D2 L4. Blackpool's recent away record against teams of Wolves grading is W1 D2 L1
 
The recent Head-to-Head record at Wolves reads Wolves 3, Draw 1, Blackpool 1. Wolves have drawn 1 of their last 5 matches. Blackpool have drawn 1 of their last 5 matches.

Match Odds: Wolves 1.83, Draw 3.50, Blackpool 3.75

Tip: Wolves v Blackpool Draw @ 3.50 Bet Now

The other draws I will be backing this weekend are Everton v Sunderland (3.50) and West Ham v Liverpool (3.25)
