Do you ever get the sinking feeling? Well, I have, because Dealer Dan has cemented his lead in our $10k wager on our English Premiership Betting Tips. Dan is leading by several units, but we’re not even halfway through the season, so there’s plenty of time for me to pick up and for Dan to slip up.
But let’s get on to my English Premiership tips this week.
Bolton to draw with Tottenham @ 9/4
Spurs looked fantastic during the week against Inter Milan, with Gareth Bale cementing himself as one of the most exciting prospects in the world with a performance straight out of the top drawer. However, the bounce factor after a European match is worrying, especially in the early kick-off. Spurs haven’t impressed away from home, scoring 1 away goal per game on average and conceding just a percentile more.
Bolton looked shocking against Liverpool, but looked dogged at the back, which might just be the key to keeping Spurs at bay. Both teams might struggle to score, while we know they can both defend well.

Under 2.5 goals in Blackpool vs Everton @ 21/20
I started off the season thinking Blackpool would be good for around 4 goals per game either for or against and while it has often been the case, their performance against West Brom on Monday was shocking, considering they were up against 9 men for most of the match. They managed to score 2 goals against a team the leaks goals and who had 9 MEN!
Everton average 1.2 goals per away game in the league, which is the worst in the EPL. Their defence is solid, but their attack is just not scoring enough goals. They should be able to get the points here against Blackpool, but Ian Holloway isn’t daft and will go at Everton, so the win prices on Everton don’t instill confidence, but the price on the goals is fantastic considering the stats.

West Brom to beat Manchester City @ 13/5
Roberto Di Matteo has done wonders at West Brom. Sure, they lost to Blackpool on Monday, but they had 9 men, only conceded two and could have got a point if their luck had been in. Their home form has been decent, which is a plus going into a big game for them at the Hawthorns.
Manchester City are on a losing run. Their defeat in Poland on Thursday is just not good enough and the defeat to Wolves in the league just sums up their current run of form. I feel West Brom are riding high, will be full of confidence and the knives are out for Roberto Mancini in Manchester.

Birmingham to keep a clean sheet against West Ham @ 13/10
West Ham away from home are terrible. Yes, they held Arsenal to a 1-0 win at Highbury, but the fact is they didn’t score. They have been poor all season and I can’t see that changing against a solid Birmingham defence. Birmingham don’t concede many goals at home, so why should it change against a team that doesn’t have a world class striker in their midst?
