Beat the Budget Blues With Our Premier League Bets

harryHopefully you took my advice last week and backed Swansea to win and for there to be over 2.5 goals in the Spurs match. If not, you can hang your head in shame and grovel for my mercy. Luckily for you of little faith, I am a merciful emperor and am going to let you live to fight another day, a day which offers us many more opportunities to earn tax free money that the pesky budget can’t touch.

Wigan have been on a poor run of form lately but I still think they are overpriced at 13/10 to beat QPR, who are still deservedly grounded in the drop zone despite the arrival of ‘arry. Wigan may have lost 3-0 to Newcastle on Monday night, but had Maynor Figueroa not been sent off early on in the game I think the Latics could prolonged Newcastle’s woes. They were impressive in the second half after Roberto Martinez got them into the dressing room and settled them down and I think the Spaniard, despite having several defenders unavailable, can unlock QPR tactically at the weekend to get his team back on track.

Norwich have won our trust over the last few weeks but this is no place for emotional attachment. Travelling to Swansea on Saturday, they should be defeated for the first time in seven matches. They have proven tricky opponents to get past but I believe that Michael Laudrup’s troops have enough attacking power to undo the Canaries. They will be boosted by the news that their widely acclaimed keeper Michel Vorm has resumed training while Norwich could still be without their No. 1 choice John Ruddy. Although Laudrup has other injury concerns, Swansea should pull through at odds of 5/6.

The third leg of our accumulator is the most adventurous of the three. I fancy Fulham and Newcastle to draw on Monday night. Hatem Ben Arfa could make a welcome return to the away side’s team and Brede Hangeland returns to firm up the Fulham defence. Neither team have inspired any confidence in them in recent matches. This might be convenient ignorance on my part of Newcastle’s victory mentioned above but I’ve explained how the result could have easily been different. The draw is available at 5/2 and I think this is a welcome final addition to our accumulator.

Putting those three bets together will give you odds about 14/1 and if you want to make even more enchanting, we could look at a Carroll-less West Ham to beat a Suarez-less Liverpool at a price of 6/5 with the draw-no-bet option. Also, in what should be a cracking game, I fancy Everton to beat Tottenham in a clash that is enthralling both on the pitch and on the sideline where the man’s man David Moyes comes up against the new-aged metrosexual AVB. On this occasion, the wise old scrapping Scot should crush the slick and smooth modern man. The Toffees are 11/10 to overcome a Spurs side who are without Gareth Bale and could feel fatigued after their Thursday night exploits.

Personally, I’m going to hedge my bets and safely stick to the first three bets but if you want to put your money where my mouth is then these 5 bets combine to give odds of over 66/1. That’ll see you earn a lot of tax free dosh that you can spend on tax, tax and more tax.
