Liverpool v Leicester, Thursday 7.45pm
Excuse the trumpets sounding, but it turned out to be an inspired decision to back Leicester in the reverse game between these two at The King Power. Do we repeat the trick at Anfield? Despite some questionable results, Brendan Rodgers still has his attack playing very dangerous football and Liverpool are not the invincible winning machine of yesteryear. They are a side that have lost to West Ham and Leicester this season and drawn with Brentford and Brighton. They also faltered in the second half against Crystal Palace in their last league game.
I’m happy to deflect the 1/4 with Sky Bet for a home win, but I’m not really too excited about a pro-Leicester game at the awards as their defense remains slippery. Supporting the draw at 21/4 with Sky Bet makes sense in hopes the Foxes can repeat their previous game tactic of authoritatively defending central areas and dynamically hitting the counter attack.
SCORE PREDICTION: 1-1 | BETTING ANGLE: Roll back the draw (6/1 with Sky Bet – Bet Here!)
Wolves v Arsenal, Thursday 7.45pm
They don’t turn many heads with their style of play, but Wolves are creeping into the European picture. This game will provide them with a great barometer of how seriously those who hit in the top six should take their charge. You can get 33/1 on a Wolves top four, which seems like a tall order with just one spot up for grabs and 9/2 for a top six, which will be a thing of the past if they win this one.
Arsenal may be a little short on the market at 6/5 for the away win given they have failed to beat Everton, Manchester United, Brighton and Brentford on the road this season – but their extra firepower in the final third gives them the edge in this fixture. I have my eye on Bukayo Saka opening the scoring in what is likely to be a low scoring affair settled by a moment of inspiration.
Saka becomes Arsenal’s go-to guy in the final third. The England star has scored four goals in his last four Premier League appearances, averaging just over four shots per 90 minutes. I would be amazed if he doesn’t end up as the club’s top scorer at the end of the season and can score the first goal here at 7/1 with Sky Bet.
