Chelsea v West Ham draw
Live on Sky Sports main event
Dan Fitch says: “As there have been three or more goals scored in 55% of all Premier League games, both of these teams have been involved this season, and five of Chelsea’s last six Premier League games, odds of around 10/11 in the 2.5 goals over/under market seem reasonable. “
“There have been at least four goals scored in five of Chelsea’s last six games in all competitions so the chances of about 3.39/4 for over 3.5 goals, regardless of the outcome of the game, might be the best way to play what is an intriguing game.”
“And given that there have been at least five goals scored in four of those last six games involving Chelsea, and the reverse game ended 3-2 in favor of the Hammers, a small bet on Over 4.5 Goals is also appropriate.”

Liverpool still need to take three points in the title race when they host Everton for the 240th Merseyside derby…
said Paul Higham: “It will absolutely surprise no one to see Liverpool so massive 1.21/5 favorites, and while it’s no surprise, it still raises an eyebrow to see Everton as big as 1716/1 to beat their city rivals.
“No Premier League game has seen more draws than the Merseyside derby, but with the 24 ties these two have played each other, and that’s 8.27/1 on a 25th draw it seems like the best-case scenario for Everton.
“It’s all about starting Frank Lampardbecause they have to fend off the early red tide that usually comes your way as visitors to Anfield, and they simply can’t afford to let the game stretch and risk Klopp’s attacking power scoring early.
“Goal difference could still be a deciding factor in the race for relegation – as in the race for the title. Bookmakers want some goals however, with less than 2.5 a heavy underdog at 2.98/15 and under goes to 1.4740/85 with both teams to score at 2.111/10 as a victory for Liverpool to zero, at the cost of 2.01/1 seems to be the consensus choice of the game.”
Paul’s wager: Liverpool comeback to beat Everton to nil @ 2.01/1
Barcelona 1.321/3 against Rayo Vallecano 11.6, the draw 6.05/1
Live on La Liga TV and Betfair Live Video
The only La Liga game taking place this weekend is Barcelona’s home game against Rayo Vallecano on Sunday night and our Spanish specialist is expecting a close game.
says Dan Fitch: “Second-placed Barca are one game short of all the teams around them. Victory would see them move within 12 points of leaders Real Madrid, with both teams then having five games to play. realistic, the title goes to Madridso the incentive for Barcelona should be the chance to retain second place and a Champions League berth, which seemed an unlikely outcome earlier in the season.
“After two consecutive defeats, Barca bounced back in midweek with a 1-0 win at Real Sociedad. Vallecano was also in action, their 1-0 win at Espanyol ending a 12-game winless streak (D4 L8).
“Goals haven’t come easily for either team lately, so backing a Barcelona win and under 2.5 goalsseems a chance worth taking at such great odds as 4.03/1.”
Dan’s bet: Return Barcelona to and under 2.5 goals to 4.03/1
