More Boring Premier League Football Tonight
The Premier League is so boring and predictable theses days. Everybody knew the match between Liverpool and Tottenham would be a draw. All three outcomes were big favourites in the space of five minutes. In fact it was the most amazing passage of play as emotions went from delight to despair. The upshot of the crazy events is that Tottenham are still two points adrift of Liverpool in the table. Chelsea lie between the two clubs but can move above Liverpool in third place by beating Watford away from home tonight. Whatever happens if you are going to the match it’s best not to leave early to avoid the traffic because anything could happen in added time.
Watford have won just once in 12 Premier League outings while Chelsea suffered a catastrophic 3-0 defeat at home to Bournemouth last week. The home side are 11th in the table but only seven points above the bottom team. Watford are only one of two teams who have not won in their last five Premier League fixtures while Chelsea have drooped seven points in their last five outings. The fixture usually produces goals and there have been 32 in the last eight meetings. However, avoiding defeat is more important than securing three points and on balance the DRAW at 3/1 with William Hill is the best betting option but the match could be in the balance until the last kick.
GLOBAL CITIZEN Must Be Backed
On first glance it appears there are two All-Weather meetings and a turf jumps fixture at Edinburgh (8am inspection) today. However, Southwell stages a regular jumps day and not racing on an artificial surface. There are some confused punters who won’t bet on AW races which means they could miss a good betting opportunity at Southwell today. The racing is very ordinary but one horse stands out like a sore thumb. The novices’ hurdle at 3.35pm is a Class 4 contest with some moderate runners. There is absolutely no strength in depth and on ratings and past form GLOBAL CITIZEN must be backed at 4/5 with Ladbrokes.
