Betting tips 16th/17th April

Saturday 16th April 2016

Man Utd (1.25) Draw (7) Aston Villa (17)

Banker of the weekend for sure. Backing against Villa has been an easy way to print money recently. I can't see Villa getting anything from this United haven't been playing great but can grind out results and even surprise on occasions like the midweek 2-1 victory over West Ham. Its just knowing how to play this. At 1.25, its a bit low but should almost be free money. I'd consider the win to nil at 1.75 at Bet Victor. The Asian Handicap is -1.75 which means a loss for 1-0 and only half odds for 2-0 which are the most likely scores.

Newcastle (2.38) Draw (3.5) Swansea (3.4)

Newcastle, even with the Benitez factor can't stop losing. No win in 7 and 6 of those were losses. If Norwich win earlier in the day, they are certainly down. Swansea have been on a little run as of late. With only 1 loss in the last 6 with impressive wins against Chelsea and Arsenal. I'll not say for sure they'll win so I'll go with the Asian Handicap. Its +0.25 at 1.97 at Bet Victor.

Rotherham (2.5) Draw (3.35) Nottingham Forest (3.25)

Since Warnock took over Rotherham, they have been on fire. If you take the last 8 games, they are top of the table. If you take Forests's last 8, the are second from bottom. Only Bolton below them. I can't believe Rotherham are odds against, let alone 2.5. Its 2.5 at Betfair sportsbook.

Leicester (1.95) Draw (3.8) West Ham (4.3)

Two teams I have been backing week in week out recently. Such good value on them both. I think Leicester are still great value. Not conceded in the last 5, winning all of them. Top of the league and deservedly so. West Ham were doing great but had a bad result midweek against a poor Man U side. You could say they were in form and were unlucky to draw to Chelsea and Arsenal but they really should have beaten that Man U side if they are playing good. Its Leicester for me then. 1.95 is generally available.
