Liverpool Can Beat The Weather And Newcastle
I’ve just looked out the window of my office and there’s bit of snow on the ground but nothing really compared to other parts of the country. I live about five miles from Anfield and if I was a betting man I’d be betting on Liverpool’s home match against Liverpool going ahead but Everton’s match at Burnley could fall foul of the Beast to the East. The cold weather has led to the cancellation of the racing except for an All-Weather fixture at Lingfield where the highlight is the Spring Cup Stakes.
Assuming we don’t have a massive snowfall in these parts before 5.30pm Liverpool can keep their season on track by beating Newcastle at home. A win would be huge in the battle for second place in the Premier League which still involves four teams who are fighting for three Champions League places. Newcastle can be difficult to break down but ultimately the hosts can win by at least one goal and its 4/7 with Betfair for LIVERPOOL MINUS -1 in the handicap markets.
Burnley can be a cold place at the height of summer so the wind chill factor could be off the scale when Everton visit Turf Moor today. The visitors have an abject away record and they have won just one of their last 22 matches on the road in the Premier League. They are on a run of four straight away day losses and that could become five today. BURNLEY are not prolific scorers but they can win this match and you can back that outcome at 6/4 with William Hill.
It’s ironic that officially it is spring so calling a race the Spring Cup Stakes at the start of March is legitimate. The fact we are having the coldest spell in years does not change the fact that the race has attracted a decent field in six runners. If the meeting at Lingfield goes ahead BENGALI BILL is the selection at 5/1 with Ladbrokes.
