Seven units lost in Matchday 23 as all 3 of my bets failed to hit. An own goal and a theatrical fall to the ground cost me in two of the games. Add those losses to the Kansas City Chiefs no show at the Super Bowl, and it was an expensive and disappointing weekend.
PREMIER LEAGUE BETTING: ARSENAL VS LEEDS UNITED
These two played out a memorable 0-0 in late December when Nicolas Pépé was sent off for violent conduct. That result looked like the beginning of the end for Mikel Arteta before turning Arsenal’s season around in December and saving his job. Current rumors circulating are that Daniel Levy wants Marcelo Bielsa to replace José Mourinho at Tottenham so these two managers could be big rivals very soon.
Arsenal’s good form has stuttered recently with 1 draw and 2 defeats in their last 3 Premier League games whilst Leeds United has won 3 of their last 4 games. Sports Books are offering Leeds at -108 to get something out of this game, and that’s great value you can’t turn down.
Prediction – 2 Units: Leeds United or the Draw -108
PREMIER LEAGUE BETTING: BRIGHTON VS ASTON VILLA
I think fatigue will start to play a significant factor in the next couple of months, and this will be both side’s 7th game in 21 days. However, Aston Villa’s squad had a 19-day rest before this run as their squad battled a COVID outbreak. Although Graham Potter has rotated his side during this run, I think that rest period will give Dean Smith’s side the advantage here.
Back Aston Villa to leave The Amex with all 3 points.
Prediction – 2 Units: Aston Villa Money Line +155
