Everton vs Liverpool

Did you use listen to our tips last week? We said it would be 2-1 (@ 8/1), with Liverpool winning at both half-time AND full-time (at evens). If you’d have stuck £20 on each bet you would have had walked away with a profit on £180!

Liverpool head to Everton after another week off. I’m sure most fans would prefer to see us playing in the Cxhampions League, but the players should genuinely benefit from not travelling across Europe, spending restless nights in hotel rooms, and playing 90 minutes of high intensity football. It’s often after Champions League matches that the top clubs screw up (especially as the European tournament progresses), so now the players have to make it pay off for us.

On paper Everton are significantly poorer than Liverpool – even in our disasterous season last year we finished well above them, and had the better statistics. Having lost Mikel Arteta, who was the team’s heartbeat, Everton have struggled to get their game together, and with Anichebe and Cahill out injured and Louis Saha being ostracised for criticising the manager, we’re not sure where their goals are going to come from!

Whilst Everton struggle for strikers, we’ve got them coming out of our ears! Suarez is obviously guaranteed to start up-front, with King Kenny forced to pick between Andy Carroll and Craig Bellamy to play alongside him. We think the fiesty Welshman will get the nod. In midfield we’re also spoilt for choice, with Adam, Downing, Henderson, Kuyt, Lucas, Spearing and Gerrard all vying for just 4 spots. Whether Gerrard is fit enough for a full 90 minutes is up for debate, but his experience would be invaluable.

Agger and Glen Johnson are still out, but we still have a relatively solid backline with Enrique, Kelly, Carragher and Skrtel. It should be an exciting match!

RESULT BET
Liverpool will win, make no mistake (available at 5/2 at Paddy Power). Everton actually have a good scoring record at home, so, whilst we don’t know who will score it, we gambling on Everton getting one goal. Our full-time prediction is a 3-1 win (available at a massive 21/1 at Ladbrokes).

BEST BET
Because it’s a derby, Liverpool are at longer odds than usual, which means there are some bargains out there. For instance, Luis Suarez is available at 3/1 (at Bet Clic) to be an anytime goalscorer, which we think is a great punt.

Arsenal vs Olympiakos

If you want to progress to the Champions League knock-out stages it’s imperative that you win your home games. Whilst the Gunners can be forgiven for taking home a solitary point away from home (though they were only two minutes away from winning the match and taking home all three), Wenger’s boys will not be forgiven if they don’t take maximum points from their match at the Emirates tonight.

They face Olympiakos, the minnows of the group, at 19:45 tonight (live on Sky Sports 2). Whilst they are expected to win, the Gunners are without a fair number of first-team players. Wilshere has obviously been ruled out until the new year, and will be missed in the centre of the park as much as stren defender Thomas Vermaelen will be at the back. Johan Djourou has also been ruled out, which will leave a backline almost certain to feature newboy Per Mertesacker alongside youngster Carl Jenkinson. Arsenal fans could be in for a rocky ride.

Up-front Arsenal will be without Gervinho, whose pace and power has impressed so far this season, as well as Benayoun and Walcott – all three have niggling injuries but hope to be back in time for Sunday’s match against the Old Enemy.

RESULT BET
Olympiakos lost in their last Champions League match, and we can’t see them having enough to trouble Arsenal at home. It might be tricky for Arsenal, but with Robin van Persie and Andrei Arshavin they should have just enough guile and skill to create chances, whilst the non-stop running from Song and Arteta should give them a solid backbone. You can get an Arsenal win at 1.57 (Paddy Power). If we had to guess the score we’d go for 2-1 to Arsenal. (9.0 at Ladbrokes).

BEST BET
With the backline looking shaky at the best of times, we think it might get difficult for the Gunners if Olympiakos play on the break. That said, we can’t see us losing. With that in mind, it makes sense to have a punt on both teams to score – available at 1.83 from Bet Clic.

United vs Basel

After Saturday night’s disappointing performance, it’s difficult to see how Manchester United regain momentum. With the fast front-runners Rooney and Hernandez both ruled out for tonight, it looks like another 90 minutes of pinning all our hopes on veterans Berbatov and Owen. Whilst they both struggled to get into the game against Stoke, we’re hoping that the home advantage turns the Reds into more of a force going forwards, and that Nani and Ashley Young see as much of the ball as possible.

Rooney (hamstring) joins Hernandez (dead leg), Smalling, Evans, Vidic, Rafael and Cleverley in the luxury seats, and leaves the squad looking a little patched up to say the least. That said, there should be more than enough quality in the rest of the squad to cover up against an aggressive but inferior Basel side.

Sir Alex Ferguson has always aimed for 10 points to guarantee qualification, which means winning all your home games and grabbing a point away. Their hard-earned point at Benfica two weeks ago has set them up nicely, with a win tonight taking them to 4 points, meaning they can have qualification sealed after their next two games in the Champions League – both against Romanian minnows Otelul Galati. You’d have to fancy our chances…

RESULT BET
It seems a bit ridiculous to back United to win when they are at home and expected to win – the best odds you can get are 1.25 (Paddy Power). It’s tempting to guess what the score will be, but notoriously difficult to get right. We think it’s going to be hard-work tonight, so we’re going for a simple 2-0 victory, available at 8.0 (Ladbrokes).

BEST BET
With Rooney and Chicharito ruled out, the attacking burden falls to the likes of Owen and Berbatov, who struggled to get chances on Saturday. Whilst we can see Owen grabbing a scrambled winner, we think the main thrust of United’s forward play is going to have to come from United’s best performer so far this season – Nani. You can get 2.63 on him to be an anytime scorer with Bet Clic, and we think thats a reasonable bet.

Arsenal vs Bolton

Arsenal’s win on Tuesday will have done little to calm the nerves of both Arsenal fans and Arsenal players. Whilst there were certainly positives to take from the victory over Shrewsbury (like Oxade-Chamberlain’s performance), there were still more than a few dodgy performances – enough for us to be worried about the game this weekend against Bolton. At least it’s at home this time!

Arsene Wenger’s thoughts on Bolton have changed since ‘Big Sam’ Allardyce moved on, and we’ve actually been pretty pally with new boss Owen Coyle (loaning out various players over the last few years), but we should still expect a physical match (something we’ve not been great at of late), with the notorious Kevin Davies leading the kicking, punching and scratching!

Kieran Gibbs is at least ready to scrap for it all, as is Aaron Ramsey who should be passed fit for this match. Djourou is out, which might be a blessing in disguise, as we try to build and instil some more confidence in the back-line.

Up-front we’ve looked good – Gervinho’s movement and power have helped us break teams down, and however badly we did at the back last week, we actually scored three good goals. Hopefully Mertesacker will be fully settled in to the backline by now, and can help us take all 3 points.

RESULT BET
It could all go horribly wrong, but we’re optimistic types here at Free Bets Now! We’re backing Arsenal to get all 3 points, and hopefully start edging out from the relegation battle! You can get an Arsenal win at 1.46 (Paddy Power). If we were to pick a score, we would say that its looking like a 3-1 win to the Gunners (at 11/1).

BEST BET
We’ve all seen our defending over the last few weeks. Hopefully by putting some money on us NOT to keep a clean sheet, Arsenal will actually start doing the last-ditch tackles and incredible saves we want them to! We’re fairly confident that we’ll score at home, but we’re also fairly sure that Bolton will have at least a chance or two, so we’re betting on both teams to score – available at 1.83 with Bet Clic.

Place this bet with BetClic and you can’t lose – because it’s your first bet, even if you lose you will get your money back! This isn’t like a normal free-bet where they make you spend it on the site, you can actually just take your money and run – it’s literally risk-free! If you stuck £30 on (the maximum Bet Clic will refund you), you would walk away with almost £60! All completely risk-free! Click here to take advantage of this deal!

Stoke vs United

Tony Pulis must be looking enviously at Manchester United’s squad (well, don’t all managers!). The guy who scored twice on Tuesday doesn’t even get so much as a look-in! Fresh from his heroics at Elland Road, Michael Owen looks likely to be rested, with Wayne Rooney and Chicharito Hernandez resuming their places up-front. With Macheda, Diouf and Welbeck all snapping at Owen’s heels, and Berbatov yet to start a Premier League game all season, Owen might be lucky to even make the bench!

There were some other accomplished performances for the Reds against Leeds, but it looks like Sir Alex Ferguson will stick with the team who out-battled and out-scored Chelsea last week. Hernandez was a worry after being given a kick for his troubles by nasty Ashley Cole, but seems to have recovered sufficiently to be included.

One man who should regain his first team spot is Rio Ferdinand. Having come through his most recent fitness test unscathed it looks like Rio will start in the centre, probably alongside Jonny Evans, though with the form and ability on show by both Chris Smalling and Phil Jones it will be difficult to pick which one should sit out. Vidic is still a few weeks away.

Stoke have been in good form recently, with a win against Liverpool and a draw against Chelsea at home already this season. They are tough-tackling, with a solid midfield and a bustling front-line, and are at their most dangerous in set-piece situations, when the tall defenders and strikers can really attack the ball – David de Gea had better watch out!

RESULT BET
It’s difficult to guess how many goals we’re going to score – when we can tonk Arsenal for 8 and Chelsea for 4, anything could happen! Stoke were undone 4-0 by Sunderland last week, so Rooney and enrandez should be licking their lips. In fairness, that was a bit of a freak result, and we certainly expect their defending to be better on Saturday night! United are at 1.55 to win (with Paddy Power), which is worth a punt. We think the score will be something like 4-1 (26/1) but we’ll only stick a quid or two on that one!

BEST BET
It all depends on how you see the match going. We can see another early United goal, so it makes sense to bet on them to be leading at both half-time AND full-time. You can get odds of upto 2.3 with Bet Clic and it has to be worth a punt, especially with the way we’ve been flying out of the blocks recently.

Place this bet with BetClic and you can’t lose – because it’s your first bet, even if you lose you will get your money back! This isn’t like a normal free-bet where they make you spend it on the site, you can actually just take your money and run – there is absolutely no risk!

Liverpool vs Wolves

Has Andy Carroll missed his chance? The Englishman has had just 12 chances to impress Kenny Dalglish, but it might well be that his time is up! Whilst he’s linked up to some good effect with Luis Suarez, and has had some flashes of brilliance, he has yet to start scoring the goals that Liverpool desperately need. With Craig Bellamy performing so admirably on his first match after returning to the club, it looks like the fiery Welshman will be difficult to dislodge from the first team.

Carroll might well be sharing the subs bench on Saturday with Steven Gerrard – the captain made a 15 minute cameo on Wednesday (and was warmly welcomed) but after almost 6 months without football, this match might be a game too soon for him.

Thankfully Charlie Adam served his suspension in the Carling Cup, so is available for selection. Wednesday night will have helped nurse a few bruised egos, with the 2-1 win helping the Reds to forget about their dismal result against Spurs, and remember how to pass the ball incisively!

Wolves were up against Spurs the week before and suffered a similar drubbing, before losing to a Joey Barton-inspired QPR last Saturday. They will be keen to get some more points on the board, but might be missing their centre-back / man mountain Roger Johnson (fingers crossed…!)

RESULT BET
It’s difficult to predict a score when Liverpool are (at the moment) so unpredictable! Fresh from our winning result bet on Wednesday (at 1.63 thanks very much!) we’re reasonably confident of a Liverpool win (available at 1.4 with Paddy Power) so that’s where we’ll be sticking all our money!

If we were forced to pick a bet we’d back Liverpool to come through with another 2-1 win at home.

BEST BET
With Wolves looking more than a little shaky at the back, and Liverpool encouraged to get forwards by the Kop, we expect this match to see some goals early doors! Suarez and Bellamy will run the defence into the ground, and we reckon a breakthrough in the first half is almost inevitable! With that in mind, we reckon a HT/FT of Liverpool/Liverpool is a good bet – and its available at 2.0 with Bet Clic!

Place this bet with BetClic and you can’t lose – because it’s your first bet, even if it doesn’t happen you will get your money back! This isn’t like a normal free-bet where they make you spend it on the site, you can actually just take your money and run! There is absoluetley no risk whatsoever, and if you stuck £30 on (the maximum Bet Clic will refund you), you would walk away with £60! Completely risk-free!
