English Breakfast: Premier League betting cheat sheet
Just a pair of games on the board Sunday to wrap up this weekend's fixtures in the English Premier League. With Chelsea's loss at Newcastle, Tottenham has an opportunity to leapfrog its London rival. It won't be easy for Spurs, however, who have the unenvious task of winning at Everton.
We talk to Aron Black of Bet365
about the action coming in for Sunday.Everton v Tottenham (+145, +240, +210)Why bet Everton:
Life post-Moyes has been good in the blue half of Liverpool. The Toffees have played excellent football under Roberto Martinez and have just one loss on the season (at Man City). They are tough to crack at home and have 10 points from a possible 12 at Goodison Park.Key players out/doubtful:
Darron Gibson, Antolin Alcaraz, Arouna KonéWhy bet Tottenham:
Spurs are one of the best away teams in the Premier League with nine points in four matches. The side is still anemic offensively, however, with just nine goals in nine matches. It feels like just a matter of time before Spurs explode offensively and with a chance to climb the table, what better time than now?
Key players out/doubtful:
Nacer Chadli, Emmanuel Adebayor, Danny Rose, Younes Kaboul2012-13 fixture result:
Everton 2, Tottenham 1Key betting note:
Spurs are winless in their last six matches at Goodison with three draws and three losses.Where the action is:
"Action so far on the FT result is pretty split – but is also a match that sees the most action on a draw, as many predict a tight affair that will see both sides playing much more cautious, and a draw would not be a bad result for either side. The under 2.5 is favored at -125, which is giving some tasty prices on players To Score Anytime. Everton's leading goalscorer Romelu Lukaku is available at +200, and is being backed as the man to get on the scoresheet anytime as well as First Goalscorer at +600."
Cardiff v Swansea (+240, +240, +130)
Why bet Cardiff:
After back-to-back losses, Cardiff finally got a positive result with a 0-0 draw at Norwich. It had been a rough stretch for the Welsh club, but the point was big. They'll be up for this one as it is the first Welsh derby in the history of the Premier League.
Key players out/doubtful:
Andreas CorneliusWhy bet Swansea:
Swansea has also turned its fortunes around. The Swans throttled Sunderland 4-0 and are coming off a 0-0 draw with West Ham. They are also a decent outfit away from home with six points in four matches. They'll have traveling support in Cardiff for this one as Welsh bragging rights are on the line.Key players out/doubtful:
