Here we go! Another huge round of Premier League football is upon us, with Serie A in the mix too.
Fulham are in the relegation zone and have only won two of their eight league games at Craven Cottage this season. Wolves, meanwhile, have only lost three of their eight away matches this season and historically have done well against Fulham, with six wins in their last eight meetings in the Championship. I’m going for an Away Win.
Match Tip: Both Teams to Score (1.75)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Fulham 1 v 2 Wolves
Liverpool’s win over Manchester United extended their incredible run at home this season. They’ve won seven of their eight league games at Anfield (five on the -1 handicap) and have only conceded twice. Newcastle are actually unbeaten in their last four away games, but they’ve lost all of their matches against Big Six sides this season. I see a comfortable Home Win.
Match Tip: Liverpool Win with -1 Handicap (1.50)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Liverpool 2 v 0 Newcastle
One thing I expect here is goals. Watford are struggling for consistency with two wins and three defeats in their last five games at Vicarage Road, but there have been Over 2.5 Goals in eight of their nine home league games this season. There have also been Over 2.5 Goals in seven of Chelsea’s eight away games, as well as their last four matches against the Hornets. I’m backing the same here.
Match Tip: Over 2.5 Goals (1.70)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Watford 1 v 2 Chelsea
It’s now six wins in a row for Inter at the San Siro in Serie A. They haven’t even conceded in the last five of those, although they’ve only faced two top-half teams. Napoli have won their past four away games so usually I’d expect lots of goals, only the last two matches between these sides have finished 0-0. I’m going for another Draw this time, and I’m backing Second Half With Most Goals since it’s happened in Inter’s last four home games and the last four away for Napoli.
Match Tip: Second Half With Most Goals (2.10)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Inter Milan 1 v 1 Napoli
Southampton v West Ham – Thursday 27 December – Premier League – BET HERE
Considering their position in the table, it’s funny that Southampton have only lost twice at home this season. However, they only won their first game at St. Mary’s 11 days ago when they beat Arsenal, which will have given them confidence. However, West Ham are unbeaten in their last four away games. I can see a Draw on Thursday.
Match Tip: Both Teams to Score (1.55)
Mr. Predictor’s Verdict: Southampton 1 v 1 West Ham
