Didier Drogba can show his class in front of goal
Another weekend, another set of football punting opportunities. It’s getting towards the business end and you can have teams raising their games and others faltering for no reason whatsoever (Liverpool 2-0 up to lose 3-2 at QPR).
With this in mind, it is prudent to not go overboard – but we do have a couple of tasty wagers to keep us interested this weekend.
Didier Drogba cut a surly figure after being left on the bench against Manchester City, with his 25-minute appearance not one of his vintage displays. He is likely to be thrust back into the Chelsea side against Spurs on Saturday lunchtime and we feel he is nailed on to try and prove a point - and there’s no better way than bagging the first goal at 5/1 bet365.
Liverpool are pretty unpredictable at the moment, which does not make for attractive punting, but they entertain a Wigan side who have been in impressive form without converting those efforts into points. This could be a cagey game and as such the 13/8 bet365. on offer from bet365 that they will be level at the interval catches our eye.
After the starters, we move onto the main course – the weekend treble. David Moyes has probably just about calmed down from the string of decisions that did not go his side’s way in Everton’s loss the Arsenal in midweek. Yes they lost, but they performed with credit and we feel that bodes well for the weekend – making them a decent punt at 12/5 bet365. QPR really were fortunate to beat Liverpool; we don't think they will repeat the dose at Sunderland so take the Black Cats at Evens. And to cap the treble, we’ll take Manchester City to keep their title charge on track at Stoke at 8/13 bet365.
Those three combined will net a tasty £109.85 for a £10 stake.
