Seeley’s Selections – Sunday’s Live Premier League
THE kids are getting stuck into the Easter Eggs and the grown ups can get stuck into two live Premier League games on this Easter Sunday.
Burnley V Tottenham, Sunday 1:30pm, Live on Sky Sports 1
Firstly Happy Easter to all BoyleSports punters and hopefully we can celebrate the holidays with some nice winners on the return of another Super Sunday in the Premier League.
The first game of the day looks a difficult one to suss out with Tottenham making the trip up to Lancashire to take on strugglers Burnley at Turf Moor.
The results on Saturday would suggest that Tottenham’s chances of making the Champions League via a top four finish are over, and the 6/5 with BoyleSports on them to win this really does look one to avoid.
Spurs struggled to get past another relegation-threatened side, Leicester City, 4-3 in their last Premier League match at White Hart Lane and were stuffed 3-0 at Old Trafford by Manchester United on their last road trip, hardly the form to be considering lumping on the visitors at those short odds.
Burnley are 13/5 with BoyleSports to get a much-needed win, and this is a much bigger game for them than the visitors and I’m sure they will be popular especially after their 1-0 win against Manchester City in their last home game. The one thing I really do fancy though is goals and a fair few of them.
The major concern for Mauricio Pochettino is that his Spurs side have only kept one clean sheet in their last 13 Premier League away games and 8/13 with BoyleSports on both sides to score is my banker in this one.
I like the two to play out a very entertaining draw which is 13/5 with BoyleSports, and I also like the 11/1 with is available with BoyleSports on a “desmond” 2-2.
Harry Kane is the 7/2 favourite for the first goal, but and after playing two games in the week for the national team that new experience makes him one to avoid in this one.
The 6/1 about another England hopeful Danny Ings to get the opener would me my choice to upstage his England under 21 striker partner.
Hopefully Ings can get an early one to land the “Double Bubble”, as if your first goalscorer selections scores inside the opening 20 minutes in any Premier League match BoyleSports will double the odds on your winning selection.
Both Teams To Score – Yes @ 8/13
Draw @ 13/5
Correct Score: Burnley 2-2 Tottenham @ 11/1
Danny Ings First Goalscorer @ 6/1 (12/1 Double Bubble)
Sunderland v Newcastle United, Sunday 4pm, Live on Sky Sports 1
Easter is all about sharing it with loved ones and friend and neighbours, but there isn’t anything that is going to be friendly when Sunderland face Newcastle in the 4pm kick-off at the Stadium of Light.
There has been some massive derbies between these two over the years, but this one could be the biggest of the lot with Sunderland desperate for the points after Saturday’s results in the Premier League.
The Wearsiders have a great recent record in this fixture and they are unbeaten in the last six meetings – winning the last four – but despite that I couldn’t back them at the 6/4 with BoyleSports.
The problem for Sunderland is they don’t score goals, they’ve now now failed to score in four of their last five Premier League games and against a Newcastle that also struggles to score goals the best bet is short , but the 8/13 with BoyleSports on the game to see under 2.5 goals is a banker.
I can’t make a case for either side on their current form and the obvious bet is the draw again in this one at the industry best 23/10 with BoyleSports, and unfortunately for anybody who is spending their Easter Sunday watching this no goalscorer is a bet I really like as well at a very tasty 13/2 with BoyleSports.
Sunderland have already drawn seven games 0-0 in the Premier League this season and with goals at a premium they could take a step closer to the unwanted Premier League record of nine in a single campaign in this one.
Under 2.5 Goals – Yes @ 8/13
Draw @ 23/10
No Goalscorer @ 13/2
