Saturday Fixtures and Best Odds
There are six fixtures in todays Premier League matches with the pick of the games the Sky Live match between Aston Villa and Chelsea. The bookies have Chelsea as favourites despite having a not so good recent record at Villa Park. Looking at current form though you would have to say that Villa’s is not good, apart from the fact they’ve struggled lately at home they were well beat by Everton last week and limped to a home midweek draw against CSKA Moscow in the UEFA Cup. Chelsea on the other hand will be keen to impress their new boss despite what Hiddink says about him not being there next season and they also have a better record on the road than they do at home. At 13/10 with Totesport Chelsea look good value.
The days other live TV match is at Old Trafford where United will be looking to beat Blackburn and open up an 8 point gap, putting the pressure on Liverpool before their Sunday fixture. Not surprisingly the bookies have United heavy odds on favourite with the best price being 1/4 with William Hill.
In the other four games Arsenal will be hoing to take advantage of the Villa Park fixture and get themsevles back in the picture for a top four finish with a win over Sunderland. Bolton who are slipping back into the relegation picture will be looking to stop the rot at home against an in form West Ham who are missing Carlton Cole. Middlesbrough take on Wigan at the Riverside hoping to end a run of 13 league games without a win and there is a real 6 pointer at Stoke where they entertain Portsmouth.
