Seeley’s Selections – Saturday’s Live Games
Saturday’s Premier League action starts with the clash between two inform sides in the lunch-time live offering between Manchester City and West Ham at Upton Park.
West Ham v Man City, Saturday 12:45, BT Sport 1
City took a bit of time to find their feet this season, well let me tell you this….they’ve found them and they are in a rich vein of form at the moment.
The Champions have won three straight Premier League matches and have scored a staggering 20 goals in their last six games in all competitions.
They are 8/15 to win this one with Boylesports and even though I never usually like heavy odds on favourites away from home in any division, I really can’t see them being stopped.
These two met on four occasions last season and the two games at Upton Park they ended in 3-0 and 3-1 victories to the champions. Amazingly City over the four games won by a staggering 14-1 aggregate margin. Sam Allardyce’s men are in good nick though; they’ve won three of their last four games and some Happy Hammers might fancy a bit of the 11/2 for them to win this with Boylesports but not me.
In West Ham’s nine games this season, seven have seen both teams scoring and in the last seven Manchester City games both teams have scored in five, so the 4/6 on that happening with Boylesports looks in the bag.
With goals expected, who’s going to score them? Well there is only one player you want to be backing in any goalscorer market right now and thats Sergio Aguero.
The Argentinian is simply on fire; four goals last week against Tottenham and another in midweek in the Champions League and at 3/1 with Boylesports on him to open the floodgates, that has to be snapped up.
It might not look like the best of bets but the 4/6 on him scoring in the 90 minutes is as good as picking it up in the street at the moment. He’s done this column the business in his last two matches and last week he landed the “Double Bubble” when scoring the first goal inside 20 minutes against Tottenham which meant that Boylesports paid out double on his first goalscorer odds from 10/3 to 20/3! Whilst the Upton Park faithful will be blowing them, we will be doubling them with Agueroooooooooo.
BTTS @ 4/6
Sergio Aguero First Goalscorer @ 3/1 (6/1 Double Bubble)
Swansea v Leicester, Saturday 5:30, Sky Sports 1
Saturday’s late kick off in the Premier League sees a struggling Leicester take the trip to Wales to face a Swansea side whose form has dropped sensationally since their fantastic start to the season.
The Swans haven’t won a Premier League match in five but Garry Monk’s men are favourites to win this one at 10/11 with Boylesports and you know what? I’m having a bit of that! I’ve not been impressed with Leicester in recent weeks. They’ve dropped points against Palace and Burnley; not ideal form if you are tempted by Boylesports offer of 10/3 in this one.
The Foxes have only won away from home once this season and the 10/3 to see them win doesn’t interest me at all. Swansea have been good at home so far this season, winning four, drawing one and losing one. When the boys from Wales have got the job done at the Liberty, it has always been to nil. That’s the bet you’ve got to be looking at in this one at 12/5 with Boylesports.
The man I’m expecting to open the scoring is Wilfried Bony at 10/3 with Boylesports.
The big Ivorian scores a massive percentage of the home teams goals and after scoring in his last two games, confidence well be sky high that he can go on and score in three successive games for the first time in his career.
Remember, if your first goalscorer selection scores the first goal inside the first 20 minutes in any Premier League match this weekend, Boylesports will double the odds on your winning selection!
Swansea to win @ 10/11
Wilfried Bony First Goalscorer @ 10/3 (Double Bubble 20/3)
