Well, Bookie Bill here and what can I say about the start of this challenge? If it keeps up like this, I’m $11k out of pocket and I won’t be a happy man. To be fair, Dealer Dan got incredibly lucky last week, with Gareth Bale scoring with his face to help Tottenham to the win. If I had that kind of lucky, Tottenham would have put 5 past Manchester City on the first week of the season.
Still, I’m determined not to let that set me back and I’ve studied the first two weeks of the Premiership season and also the midweek Carling cup matches to get an insight into the best Premiership tips for this week.
This week I’ve seen a lot of support for West Brom against Liverpool and that 15/1 on offer might just end up being incredibly generous if the same Liverpool team that played Manchester city turned up. Still, I wouldn’t be touching it, not with the amount of goals West Brom tend to ship. But you can back that at Paddy Power if you fancy it.
Now, without further ado, here are my second lot of picks for this weekend’s Premiership matches:
Over 2.5 goals in Blackpool Vs Fulham match @ Evens at Paddy Power
Or bet at Bovada if you’re in the USA.
I had a conversation with a friend at the start of the season and we both convinced ourselves that Blackpool would be shipping an awful lot of goals. Well, against Arsenal they shipped six and, to be fair to them, they scored 4 at Wigan, but the fact remains, they’re averaging 5 goals a game. Include their Carling Cup match and that average goes up to almost 6. Fulham’s midweek score (6-0) reflects well on their scoring ability and I honestly think they’ll be able to take 3 off Blackpool no problem.
As well as over 2.5, we’ll be backing:
Over 3.5 goals in Blackpool Vs Fulham match @ 5/2 at Bovada.
The reasons above outline why I think this could be another high scoring game. Fulham put 6 past Port Vale, MK Dons put 4 past Blackpool in the Carling Cup matches, so I don’t see why we can’t have another high scoring weekend.
Newcastle United to beat Wolverhampton Wanderers @ 2/1 at Bovada.
Newcastle are riding high at the moment after thumping Aston Villa 6-0 and then letting their reserves have a run out against Accrington Stanley during the week. Wolves stuttered to a 2-1 home win over Southend after their 1-1 draw with Everton last weekend. Wolves have started this season well, but Newcastle will want to build on their success and Molineux is the perfect place to do it.

Aston Villa are a club in freefall. The Europa League defeat has left them in a state of shock and Everton couldn’t have picked a better time to visit Villa Park. The managerless Aston Villa have conceded 9 goals in their last two games, while Everton have scored 6. David Moyes will know this is already a big game for his side if they are to improve on last season and he’ll have them hungry for it. The price is just about right and I wouldn’t be surprised to see it get a tad shorted just before kick-off.
