Seeley’s Selections – Sunday’s Live Games
IT’S an incredible day of sporting action this weekend and Sunday really promises to be a cracker for BoyleSports punters with Premier League action, Six Nations rugby and the Capital One Cup Final.
Liverpool v Man City
The first live match of what promises to be a incredible day is arguably in my opinion the biggest match of the weekend the Premier League showdown between Liverpool and champions Man City at Anfield.
Both sides suffered European disappointments in midweek and will be keen to get back to winning ways in this one but I can see both having to settle for a point.
Liverpool make the long trip back from Turkey in the early hours of Friday morning and despite their long journey home after an agonising penalties defeat to Besiktas, BoyleSports still make Brendan Rodgers men just 21/10 to win against the champions.
City, were also very poor in midweek versus Barcelona particularly in the first half and even with the retuning Yaya Toure, I still can’t be tempted by the 11/8 on the champions with BoyleSports.
Manuel Pellegrini’s battered troops arrive here not in the best of form with just two wins in their last seven games, but those two wins have come in their last two Premier League matches where they banged in NINE GOALS in the process.
Early in the season City won 3-1 at the Ethiad, but that was against a Liverpool side that was struggling for form at the time and in this fixture last season it finished 3-2 to Liverpool and I expect goals again on Sunday.
In the last six matches between these two attacking sides both teams have scored on every occasion and at BoyleSports 8/13 I fully expect that to continue.
Also in five of those six matches you would have been settled as a winner on the over 3.5 goals market and at 15/8 with BoyleSports thats also worth taking.
Three of the last six games between these two sides have ended 2-2 and with goals expected the 11/1 with BoyleSports on another “desmond” is worth a small investment.
REMEMBER “double bubble” BoyleSports will double the odds on your first goalscorer selection if your winning player scores inside the first 20 minutes and Sergio Aguero a man who netted a worldie against Barcelona would be my choice at BoyleSports 9/2.
Both Teams To Score – Yes @ 8/13
Over 3.5 Goals @ 15/8
Correct Score 2-2 @ 11/1
Arsenal v Everton
THE Arsenal boo-boys and “Wenger out” brigade will be in full voice at the Emirates on Sunday afternoon when Arsenal host Everton.
Arsenal were shocking against Monaco in the embarrassing 3-1 defeat to Monaco and every time Arsene Wenger is under some pressure he always gets a result from his men and this is no exception.
The Gunners are just 4/7 with BoyleSports to win this one and although I fully expect them to get three points I wouldn’t be taking those short odds.
The Wenger Boys “NEVER” lose to the teams in the bottom half of the table; they are the biggest flat track bullies in the Premier League and they won’t get beat here.
I like Arsenal on the handicap market -1 which is 7/5 with BoyleSports and that would have been a winner in seven of Arsenal’s nine home matches.
Last season they played twice at the Emirates in the 1-1 draw in Premier League and a comfortably 4-1 success for Arsenal in the FA Cup, both games were very open matches and despite Everton being very negative in recent weeks I thinks this will be an entertaining one.
The visitors have only won once in their last 13 Premier League matches and despite their European heroics in midweek, where they were the only English team to progress to the last 16 of the Europa League, their domestic form has suffered as a consequence.
The toffees haven’t won at Arsenal since 1996 and I couldn’t back them at BoyleSports offer of 11/2 to end that unwanted recored.
With both teams expected to score – which is 5/6 with BoyleSports – and the changes expected by Wenger I expect Theo Walcott to lead the attack and at 7/1 to score the first goal that looks decent odds for the England man.
Arsenal To Win -2 @ 7/5
Theo Walcott First Goalscorer @ 7/1
Capital One Cup Final – Chelsea v Spurs
THE final game on Sunday is the first major cup final of 2015 when London rivals Chelsea and Tottenham clash at Wembley in the Capital One Cup.
Unlike some recent cup finals this promises to be a half decent game and both sides will go for it, i’m sure with goals surely on the Sunday lunch-time menu.
Chelsea are unsurprisingly the favourites to lift the trophy, but at BoyleSports 1/3 they look very short to me.
Jose Mourinho’s side will be without key man Nemanja Matic, which is a huge blow and they head to Wembley in their worst form of the season with just two wins in the last eight matches.
Tottenham are 9/4 with BoyleSports to lift the the trophy and despite their Europa League midweek exertions they are the value for me.
Spurs have just three defeats in their last 11 games and confidence will be sky high after they gave Chelsea a 5-3 hammering at White Hart Lane on New Years Day.
The big negative for Spurs backers is that they travelled back from Italy on Friday after their 2-0 defeat to Fiorentina, but it’s not one of the longest journeys in Europe and at least half of the starting XI on Sunday didn’t feature in the match.
There has to be goals in this one as both teams have scored in six of Chelsea’s last eight matches and at Tottenham it’s the same with 11 of their last 14 matches seeing goals.
Eight of the last 11 meetings between the pair has seen both teams finding the net at at the 3/4 with BoyleSports that’s the best bet in the game.
Backers of Tottenham to win 2-1 this season have been in clover and at 12/1 with BoyleSport I can see this very fit Tottenham side scoring a late winner to see them win by that score-line again.
Harry Kane tore this Chelsea defence apart on New Years Day and at 7/1 with BoyleSports for a man who has scored the first goal seven times this season he has to be a wager.
Both Teams To Score – Yes @ 3/4
Correct Score Tottenham 2-1 @ 12/1
Harry Kane First Goalscorer @ 7/1
