Seeley’s Selections – Sunday’s Live Football Tips
We start a great day of football action with a Premier League clash between two sides that can’t be trusted with anyones cash at the moment when Man City entertain West Ham at the Etihad on Sunday.
This pair are both in shocking form at present as both managers look set to be handed their P45s very shortly.
The champions are just 1/4 to win this one with BoyleSports and they probably will win, but anybody contemplating backing them at those short prices needs to have a long look in the mirror.
City have just two wins in their last eight matches and defeats at Crystal Palace and Man Utd has left them looking over their shoulders in the chase for a top four spot.
The Hammers, aren’t a happy bunch at the moment either after their awful run of just one win in 11 which sees them arrive in Manchester as BoyleSports 13/1 no-hopers.
West Ham, some how beat City 2-1 at Upton Park earlier in the season and they’ve never done the double over the champions since the Premier League was formed – they aren’t going to either.
The way City have been defending recently, I can see the visitors scoring at the 10/11 with BoyleSports on both teams to scoring – that looks a yes to me.
I’m going to take City to win this 3-1 which is 9/1 with BoyleSports and it does looks the better bet rather than the short odds on them just to win.
There aren’t many players in this City team who are playing for the manager, but Sergio Aguero is one of them.
The City ace hasn’t had the best season, but he can still be crowned the top goalscorer in the Premier League and on a personal note that could be his main objective.
The Argentinian is 2/1 to open the scoring with BoyleSports,which is the only option and hopefully he nets inside the opening 20 minutes to land the “double bubble” offer, where BoyleSports will double the odds on your winning first goalscorer selection if that player scores the first goal inside the opening 20 minutes.
Both Teams To Score – Yes @ 10/11
Correct Score Man City 3-1 @ 9/1
Sergio Aguero First Goalscorer @ 2/1
Aston Villa v Liverpool
THE second game of this Super Sunday is from Wembley in the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Aston Villa.
Arsenal await the winners at the end of May and BoyleSports are making Liverpool their heavy favourites to join them – I’m not so sure.
Aston Villa come into this one full of confidence having beaten Tottenham last weekend which all but secures their place in the Premier League next season and they will fancy their chances in this one.
Tim Sherwood has done a great job since taking over at Villa Park having only lost two games in their last seven. They are playing some very attractive football and at 5/1 with BoyleSports and will certainly have a few takers.
I couldn’t bring myself to back the 5/1, but I really don’t think they get beat and the Aston Villa-Draw double chance market looks a great bet at 11/8 with BoyleSports, which means we only lose if Liverpool win in 90-minutes play.
Villa’s recent revival has been mainly down to the return of goalscoring form of Christian Benteke.
The Belgium international has been a revelation under Sherwood and has scored nine goals in his last eight games.
The 17/10 on him with BoyleSports to score at Wembley is a bet I like a lot and I’m loving the 11/2 on him to score the first goal as well.
I think we could be in for a very long evening and I like the game to end 1-1 at 13/2 with BoyleSports. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the match settled on a penalty shoot-out.
Christian Benteke Anytime Goalscorer @ 17/10

Correct Score 1-1 @ 13/2
Newcastle v Tottenham
THE final game of this hectic football weekend is back in Premier League and it’s up in the North East where Tottenham make the long journey to take on Newcastle.
The questions I have to ask is what is the point of this game? And why oh why have Sky decided to screen this live?
Neither of these two have anything to play for with Tottenham pretty much guaranteed Europa League football next season and Newcastle certain of survival. Usually that means lots of goals but I don’t think so in this one.
Tottenham are BoyleSports favourites at 13/10, but with just three wins in their last eight Premier League games they aren’t to be touched at those prices.
Spurs were awful in their last match losing 1-0 to Aston Villa and they played their part in the worst game of the Premier League season so far, the week before in a bore 0-0 draw at Burnley.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side have played a lot of football this season with all the travelling in the Europa League and also made it to the Capital One Cup Final; they look out on their feet and the last thing they would want at this stage of the season is a long trip to Newcastle.
Newcastle can’t be backed either at the 23/10 with BoyleSports; they were the first team this season to swap the footy boots for a pair of espadrilles and they’ve lost their last five Premier League games scoring just one goal.
The draw is the only betting option on the match outcome at 5/2 with BoyleSports and also no goalscorer at 9/1 with BoyleSports looks another bet.
The match has a long history of goals, but on the current form of ether side it’s just impossible to see any this time around.
Under 2.5 goals in the game at 20/21 with BoyleSports is my banker bet of the day.
Newcastle have scored just once in five and the visitors have now gone 202 minutes without an away goal in the Premier League and with nothing for anybody to play for this could turn into a damp squib very quickly.
Under 2.5 Goals @ 20/21
Draw @ 5/2
No goalscorer @ 9/1
