WhichBookie footy tipster Matt Le Tissier shares his thoughts on upcoming matches taking place this weekend.
This week, Matt has picked out a Saturday treble, a promising double at almost 6/1 and a Monday night NAP.
It’s getting to the point in the season now where Fulham will want and need the points more than Wolves. Neither team are in particularly great form at the moment but I am slightly siding with Fulham because of how much they need the win.

Betting against City at the moment is ridiculous. Leeds have picked up a couple of decent wins recently but I can’t see them troubling Man City on Saturday.
This will be the first part of my Saturday treble.

I think Liverpool will avenge the 7-2 hammering they suffered at Villa Park earlier in the season. 21/4 on Villa at Unibet is quite generous odds given the way Liverpool have been lately but I can’t see Liverpool not winning this game, especially with Grealish still out. I don’t think Villa will cause them too many problems.
|Liverpool v Aston Villa|
Chelsea will be the final part of my Saturday treble along with Man City and Liverpool. Odds of around 1/2 aren’t great but I can’t see Palace taking anything off Chelsea who have been strong since Tuchel joined the club. They had a man sent off against West Brom last week that contributed to the freaky result but I’d expect them to bounce back. Other than last week’s result, they haven’t been conceding many goals and so you’ve got to expect Chelsea to be strong enough to beat Palace.

This is one of those games that I look at and think that the draw is probably the best bet of all the odds available. Newcastle have some tough fixtures coming up and so this is a game that they will want to win and the one that they have the most chance of getting points from but I see this as a tense relegation scrap that will end in either a 0-0 or 1-1 draw.
Newcastle have drawn four of their last five and Burnley have drawn four of their last eight so a draw seems like the logical conclusion.

I think I underestimated West Ham last week as they were pretty impressive against Wolves. They threw away a three-goal lead against Arsenal and nearly did again against Wolves but going forward they are looking like they’ll be scoring goals every game.
I’ll be putting West Ham in my double this week as I think they’ll just have the edge over Leicester.

I think 6/4 for United with Betfair is fair odds considering they have been pretty decent away from home but they are up against a Spurs team that went to Old Trafford and put six past them earlier in the season. I’d probably just side with Man Utd here.

I can’t see Sheff Utd causing too many problems but then again, it is Arsenal they’re playing who are a team that are pretty difficult to predict at the moment. Arsenal have had a mixed bag of results in their last six matches but I would expect them to turn over Sheffield United.
Arsenal to win & BTTS is 11/4 with Bet365.

West Brom had a very good result against Chelsea. Once you get a team with 10 men up against the ropes like they did, it can be quite easy to get five goals if you get a couple in quick succession and heads go down. It was a crackin’ result for them but I still fancy Southampton to beat them.
Last week against Burnley, I started to see a little bit of the old Southampton from earlier on in the season. Getting a goal back pretty quick after going 2-0 down was a big turning point in the game. Once they got that first goal, it looked like they were the most likely to go on and win the game. Ings scored a crackin’ goal and it’s great to have him back again and he looked a lot sharper, fitter, more confident and more like the old Danny Ings.
Southampton will go in my double this week along with West Ham.

The last game of the week is my NAP. Everton away from home are a very different proposition. They’ve won 9 of their 14 on the road which is pretty impressive with only City and Leicester winning more away from home and no team have won less than Brighton at home.
Odds of 5/2 for an Everton win are very generous which is why they’re my NAP this week.
