There are two English Premier League games on this morning, in just a matter of a few short hours. The most important of the two games is the Manchester City VS Tottenham game, with the battle for a Champions League spot on the line. The other game is a battle for 10th place between Europa League surprise packet Fulham, and Stoke City.
This game will be a spectacle not to be missed by any serious EPL fan. Being played at 5am AEST, the two teams will be playing for 4th spot. That position gives them a chance to participate in the Champions League of 2010, and means about 40 million pounds to the participant. Obviously, Spurs could do with the money a lot more than the Arab owned City outfit.
Manchester City VS Tottenham Hotspur Betting
As you might expect the odds at Sportsbet have City as favourites, because of the home ground advantage. City have only lost twice at home this season, once being a final minute heart-breaker against Manchester United.
On the other hand, Tottenham have not played well on the road this season, only winning 6 games.
My best bet for this round is a simple head to head bet on Manchester City. Sportsbet are giving odds of $2.00 in this one. If you like Spurs you can get on at $3.75, with a draw paying $3.40.
Manchester City VS Tottenham Hotspur Prediction
I’m expecting a thrilling game in this one and will be staying up to watch the action. I think City will be too strong at home, and will win in an open affair.
My prediction is that Manchester City will win this game 3-1.
Fulham will be playing in the Europa league final later this month and will be looking to rest a couple of their players. It has been confirmed that Bobby Zamora is out of this clash between to teams battling for 10th place.
Fulham VS Stoke City Betting
It amazes me that Fulham are not much shorter than they currently are. Juicy odds of $2.10 can be found at Sportsbet, in a game in which I think they will have too much class.
Perhaps the punters are wary of them resting players, but I think at Craven Cottage they will continue their rich vain of form in the 2009/2010 EPL season.
TAB sportsbet have Fulham paying $2.10, Stoke at $3.50 and a draw at $3.30.
Fulham VS Stoke City Prediction
I think Fulham will sneak home in this one, even though they won’t be at their best. I think their winning mentality will get them home and solidify their 10th spot on the ladder.
Prediction: Fulham to win 1-0.
