EPL ROund 7 Sep30

EPL ROund 7

We will call this is the weekend of the heavy favourite.  There are no fewer than four teams giving a goal or more in their respective matches and three of them actually find themselves on the road.  James Kempton offers his thoughts and analysis on every match to put your wagering dollars to work this weekend. Everton v Crystal Palace Everton -0.75 and 2.75 goals Friday Night Football is back and this should be a cracker as Alan Pardew’s men return north following that amazing come from behind win at Sunderland last weekend. It was one apiece last season and the Eagles registered two 3-2 victories in their other  recent trips to Merseyside to take on the Toffees. Despite those historical results I lean to the home team…but after last weeks let down it won’t be for cold hard cash! Swansea City v Liverpool Liverpool -1.25 and 3 goals Swansea matched Man City for long periods of their game last Saturday but it was the extra class of City that eventually saw them pull away and win by two clear goals. Over 2.5 goals is 7-3 in the last ten meetings of the sides with over 3.5 goals going 6-4 in that run. I lean to the underdog and over the total but if the game becomes a shootout Liverpool have far more ammunition to shoot than the Swans. Hull City v Chelsea Chelsea -1 and 2.75 goals Many teams may face the kind of wrath on Merseyside this season that saw Hull succumb 5-1 last weekend but I am not convinced that this Chelsea side has that kind of ‘blow away’ ability. I sense Chelsea is more workmanlike than the other top teams in this league so I am happy to take Hull...

Week 3…what a shit show for some Superbowl contenders!!!  There were pleasant surprises and alarming disappointments so to make sense of it all I turned the floor over to Payneinsider for an adulterated rant.  Along with a recap of the weekend that was we shared our thoughts on Saints/Falcons and tipped our hand as to where the market might move on Week 4’s biggest games. Snowden got a thumbs up from both of us for entertainment value even if the accuracy left a whole lot be desired.  Regardless the podcast dream team hammered out another comprehensive edition with the best gambling intel you’ll find anywhere on the net. The Takeaways from Week 3 • It’s not time to hit the panic button in the desert but the outlook for NFC favorite Arizona isn’t gumdrops and unicorns. Described as a “jelly donut” by Payneinsder, the Cardinals failed to match Buffalo’s intensity on Sunday putting forth an absolutely horrific effort. While it’s obviously not a death knell, the team picked by many to win the division and conference needs to take a good hard look in the mirror and figure out their identity. • Carson Wentz isn’t going to be a first ballot hall of famer after three games but his start in Philadelphia is something worth noticing. However Wentz’ job gets considerably easier when the defense plays as well as it has thus far. Jim Schwartz’ stop unit is on another level right now heading into the bye week and if they can keep performing so well the rookie quarterback will only be asked to play within himself rather than win games entirely on his own. • The Dolphins have major issues. Beating the expansion Cleveland Browns doesn’t provide a ton of confidence that Miami...

Week 3 started with a BANG and an easy cash of the 1H under in New England and Houston.  We’re still waiting to see a number of NFL teams show their true colors at this early juncture of the season but there are a bevy of 0-2 teams staring disaster in the eye.  Thankfully we can lean on Payneinsider to give us a bit of clarity before deciphering the NFL board this weekend.

EPL Round 6 Sep23

EPL Round 6

An EPL season without drama at Old Trafford isn’t an EPL season at all.  Fortunately the proud club is still fighting for it’s new identity under Jose Mourinho; a far cry from the resurgence being experienced by their Man City neighbors.  The biggest match of the weekend takes place in London with city bragging rights on the line between Arsenal and Chelsea.  James Kempton’s here to shed light on all things EPL this weekend. Manchester United v Leicester City Man Utd -0.75 and 2.5 goals Both games ended all square last season with 1-1 draws. If you include the Community Shield played back in August all five meetings of the sides since September 2014 have seen Yes on BTTS land. All the pressure going into this game is heaped onto the home team as it’s tough to remember when a Mourinho led team lost three games in a week. I will take the Yes on Both Teams To Score as my favourite bet here on what appears to be a tricky looking match and goal market line. Bournemouth v Everton Everton -0.25 and 2.5 goals The sides met three times last season and Everton scored at least twice in each of those games with the League game here finishing 3-3. When I priced this game up in my mind I had Everton as a -0.5 favourite but I think the books are don’t want to show a knee jerk reaction to Everton’s recent strong performances. Last time out I believed they offered value at home to Middlesbrough and after a nervous start won easily. I will continue to back Everton until either the books adjust correctly or they let me down…it worked quite well with Leicester a season ago. Liverpool v Hull City Liverpool...

EPL Round 5 Sep16

EPL Round 5

The Premier League never fails to disappoint and last weekend we were treated to a real cracker in the Manchester Derby.  This weekend we have a rare Friday Night football match between two of the largest clubs in England.  Sit back, relax, and let James Kempton do the heavy lifting to get your gambling mind right this week. Chelsea v Liverpool Chelsea -0.25 and 2.75 goals We have contrasting goal trends going into this exciting Friday Night Football offering. Yes on BTTS has gone 11-3 in the last fourteen competitive meetings of the sides but recently the under 2.5 goals is 5-2 in the last seven between them. John Terry is ruled out of this match so there will be some defensive reshuffling required by the home team and that should favour this attacking looking Liverpool team. If you could predict that the away team would put in an adequate performance you could side with them but they are so unpredictable it’s hard to trust them. This is one to sit back and enjoy as your weekend starts and those who do want to place a bet may just take a little piece of the unders. Listen to the EPL podcast Hull v Arsenal Arsenal -1 and 2.5 goals  Arsenal were in Paris midweek for their Champions League campaign and it may only have been a quick hop over the channel but I am loathed to give up a full goal in view of that trip. Having said that they have made the trek to Hull five times since January 2009 and outscored the Tigers 15-4 covering this line four times and pushing the other visit. The effort we’ve seen from the home team so far this season though makes me keep away from...
