Seeley’s Selections – Sunday’s Live Premier League
Everything is rosy in the East End of London and the natives are a happy bunch and I really can’t see the chirpy mood changing this weekend when West Ham host Hull down at the Bolyen Ground.
West Ham v Hull City, Sunday 1.30pm, live on Sky Sports 1
The Hammers came through an epic FA Cup tie on Tuesday night against Everton in what was one of the best matches of the season so far and providing the marathon 9-8 penalty victory hasn’t taken too much out of them, I really can see them winning convincingly on Sunday afternoon.
Sam Allardyce’s men are 3/4 with BoyleSports to win this one and they look one of the bankers on the weekend coupons to me at that price.
The Hammers have drawn their last four matches 1-1 which is 6/1 with BoyleSports here and that is a slight concern as the draw is the best the visitors can hope for in this one, but I can see the home side being far too strong in every department.
The Hammers have always been a match for anybody at home and this season they have only three loses, while the visitors have only two wins on the road this campaign, so you can see why I like the home team.
Steve Bruce is a manager under pressure after just three wins from their last 23 games and it’s hard to disagree with their odds of 17/4 with BoyleSports for this one. For the first time this season they start a match in the relegation zone and it’s impossible to make any case for them at ANY price.
Bruce side has big problems scoring goals with Nikica Jelavic and Abel Hernandez both ruled out for six weeks joining a long list of players who are missing for the Tigers.
Eight of their last nine loses have all been to nil and I can’t see the visitors scoring in this one and the home win to nil looks my banker of the weekend at 17/10 with BoyleSports.
Seven of the last eight for Hull also seen both teams failing to score and this one as a “No” should certainly be in your weekend long-lists at BoyleSports 3/4.
We have been on a great run recently on the correct-score predictions we landed the 1-1 draw in the midweek West Ham FA Cup clash with Everton amongst others and I like the hosts here to cruise to a 2-0 win at BoyleSports 13/2.
For a first goalscorer it’s not an obvious play but Andy Carroll looked back to his best in midweek and with crosses coming in from either side from the impressive Aaron Cresswell and Carl Jenkinson I can see the big man causing havoc against a side lacking in confidence and 7/2 with BoyleSports on him opening the scoring is also worth a flutter.
West Ham To Win @ 3/4
West Ham To Win To Nil @ 17/10
West Ham To Win 2-0 @ 13/2
Andy Carroll First Goalscorer @ 7/2
Manchester City v Arsenal, Sunday 4pm, live on Sky Sports 1
WE’VE had the starter and now it’s the Sunday main course, so settle down in front of the box and enjoy what is the match of the Premier League weekend the clash at the Etihad between champions Manchester City and Arsenal.
This is going to be a beauty and one thing that looks certain to be served on the lunch-time menu is goals, and lots of them. When we are betting on this one the goal markets are the only ones we should be looking at.
Last season this match ended 6-3 to the home side and with both sides offering great attacking flair, dodgy defenders and shaky keepers I wouldn’t be surprised to see another crazy scoreline.
The first bet I like though isn’t going to make us rich but it will win it’s the 4/7 with BoyleSports on both teams scoring.
It’s really impossible not to see goals for either side in this one as for the first time this season Arsene Wenger has virtually a full squad to choose from and the returning Sergio Aguero for the hosts, although he’s a doubtful starter, strengthens the argument.
The match to feature more than 2.5 goals looks in the bag at BoyleSports 6/10 offer but I would be more tempted to play the over 3.5 goals in the game at a much more appealing 29/20.
If you want to get involved in the match winner than City are the BoyleSports 4/5 odds-on favourites and seeing as they are unbeaten in their last 14 matches they will be very popular with the big-hitting punters.
I’m not so sure though, they struggled at Everton last week drawing 1-1 at Goodison Park and are without the services of YaYa Toure and the champions’ record without the giant Ivorian isn’t very good, incredibly they’ve only won four of the 18 games he’s missed, and in a game where he usually bosses the midfield the YaYa factor puts me off the home side.
Arsenal produced their best performance of the season last time out in the 3-0 Stoke win and Wenger for the first time this campaign has all his big guns available.
They will be very confident of producing a BoyleSport 7/2 shock especially after their pre-season 3-0 Community Shield victory but I’m siding with the draw instead at a massive 3/1 with BoyleSports.
When the pair met at the Emirates earlier in the season it ended in a 2-2 thriller and I also like the 11/1 with BoyleSports on another “desmond”.
Alexis Sanchez produced another virtuoso display for the Gunners’ last weekend and the Chilean superstar is at 11/2 with BoyleSports to open the scoring in this one , but the man I like at big prices is the “Ox” – Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
The “Ox” produced one of his best displays in an Arsenal shirt against Stoke and his confidence looks sky high at the moment at 12/1 with BoyleSports to score the opener that looks a nice price as does the 7/2 with BoyleSports on him just scoring anytime in the 90-minutes and in a game where I can see lots of goals that looks the better option.
Over 3.5 Goals @ 29/20
Draw @ 3/1
2-2 Draw @ 11/1
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain To Score Anytime @ 7/2
REMEMBER BoyleSports offer of “Double Bubble” which doubles the odds on your winning first goalscorer selections on all Premier League games if your player needs the opener inside the opening 20 minutes.
