Capper Nigel Seely breaks down Week 13 of the Premier League 2016-2017 season taking place over Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th November. Check out his predictions and which free picks will he be pulling the trigger on.

 MAN CITY V BURNLEY

 

The weekend Premier League action starts with a Lancashire hot-pot when Man City make the short trip to Turf Moor to face neighbors Burnley.

If it wasn't for The Clarets woeful display on Monday night against West Brom I would be giving Sean Dyche's side a chance in this one at the 9.50 being offered by Sportingbet, but the inept performance in the 4-0 defeat was so bad that I just can't take the risk.

Burnley are a very different side at home to on their travels and they've already beaten Liverpool, Everton, Watford and Crystal Palace this season, but recent history suggests a comfortable away win.

City, did loose on their last Premier League visit to Turf Moor in 2014 but prior to that defeat they were unbeaten in their last seven trips and boasted some very heavy wins in that period as well and they should prove too strong again, but 1.33 on them winning represents very little value.

Eight times City have won in the Premier League this season and in seven of those wins they've flown out of the traps early and scored an early goal and led at the break and the 1.86 with Coral on them to be leading at both half-time and full-time is a better way to get with the visitors rather than take the heavy odds-on about them just to win the match.

HULL V WEST BROM

 

HULL take on West Brom at the KC Stadium and the Tigers' are on a dreadful run of form and on a slippery slope back to the Championship.

Mike Phelan's strugglers have lost six of their last eight matches and I can't make any case for them at all at the general 3.20 available in this one.

West Brom produced their best performance of the season in the 4-0 thrashing of another newly promoted club Burnley on Monday night and with confidence sky-high for the Baggies the 2.60 with William Hill on them to register back-to-back wins looks very generous.

LEICESTER V MIDDLESBROUGH

 

The best bet in the Premier League this weekend comes at the King Power were champions Leicester host Middlesbrough.

We all know that The Foxes haven't had the best of starts to their title defense, but they are the Champions of England and they are playing a side that was in the Championship last season and 1.83 in a home win at William Hills, well that looks a crazy price to me.

Claudio Ranieri's side were excellent in midweek in the 2- 1 Champions League win against Brugge, which saw them make it through to the last 16 and their home form has been ok this season with just two defeats in their 10 home matches and against a side who've only one just ONCE in their last 11 games and with no wins on the road since August, well you've just got to get involved.

LIVERPOOL V SUNDERLAND

 

Liverpool continues to be  the punter's pals but anybody seriously taking them at 1.20 to beat Sunderland this weekend really needs to take a long hard look at themselves in the mirror.

Jurgen Klopp's side are always heavily supported into silly soccer odds and the gamble might even get more silly come kick-off time.

Over the years these are exactly the kind of games that the Reds' have slipped up on and against Sunderland they've had their problems before and throw former Everton manager David Moyes into the mix and back-to-back success for the Mackems this mightn't a one sided as many are predicting.

I can't see Sunderland winning this but I don't believe that they will be embarrassed and I like the 2.70 on Sunderland +1.5 goals on the Asian handicap.

 SWANSEA V CRYSTAL PALACE

 

Swansea v Crystal Palace looks the most difficult match to call on the Premier League coupon this weekend and with major doubts about both teams form it's hard to pick a winner with much confidence.

The Swans are yet to register a win for new manager Bob Bradley and have failed a single success in their last 11 matches and no team in 2016 has a worse Premier League record than Crystal Palace and with them both as bad as one another the only logically soccer pick in this one is to play the draw at the general 3.40.

CHELSEA V TOTTENHAM

 

The big game of the weekend is at Stamford Bridge on Saturday night when league leaders Chelsea host unbeaten Tottenham at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are my idea of champions this season and since their embarrassing 3-0 defeat at Arsenal manager Antonio Conte has reverted to a back three and his side reaped the rewards winning SIX Premier League games on the bounce and haven't conceded a goal in that period either.

The Blues' are just 1.72 to register a seventh consecutive win and that is being heavily supported and without a home defeat against their London rivals since 1990 the omens look good for Chelsea backers.

I believe this will be very tight as Chelsea aren't conceding goals and Tottenham boast the best defensive record in the top flight and in this one I am getting stuck into the 2.05 with William Hills on under 2.5 goals in the match.

 WATFORD V STOKE

 

SUNDAY starts with what I am expecting to  be a surprisingly entertaining match up when Watford host Stoke at Vicarage Road.

The Hornet's have gone under the radar this season and my pre-season fancy for relegation, have surprised everybody by currently sitting in a lofty eighth place in the Premier League table.

Manager Walter Mazzarri has got his side playing a very attack-minded style of football, especially at home and they've already beaten Manchester United and champions Leicester and they will have no fear against the inconsistent Stoke.

Watford are a general 2.40 for the win and with them undefeated in their last four home matches that look worth taking but the betting angle in this one is to get with goals.

In six of Watford's seven home matches this season both teams have scored and at 1.75 with Bet365 and Coral I like that bet a lot in what I believe will be a good watch.

 ARSENAL V BOURNEMOUTH

 

IT'S one for the football purists on Sunday lunchtime when two sides that play football in the right way Arsenal and Bournemouth meet at The Emirates.

The Gunners' haven't lost a match since Liverpool beat them on the opening day of the season and the biggest flat track bullies in the Premier League will have no problems in this one and despite odds of just 1.45 they are expected to win and win well.

Last season Arsenal won both meetings against the sea-siders 2-0 and a similar kind of performance is expected again and if 1.45 isn't a price that floats your boat then 2.62 with BetVictor on an Arsenal win to nil might.

 I expect the visitors to go toe-to-toe with the Gunners' and that is not the thing to do and I couldn't back them with anybody's cash at the general 9.00.

Arsene Wenger's side have been scoring goals for fun at The Emirates with at least two or more goals scored in NINE of their 11 matches and I can see them continuing their high scoring run with at least two again and I like the Gunners' -1.5 on the Asian handicap lines at 2.15 with Bet365.

 MAN UNITED V WEST HAM

Manchester United produced their best performance under Jose Mourinho in midweek with the 4-0 thrashing off Feyenoord in the Europa League and they look set to continue from where they left off when the host West Ham at Old Trafford.

That performance has seen the money come for United who are now down to 1.50 and that might appeal to large staking clients against a Hammers side struggling for form.

I couldn't back them at the prices but despite West Ham scoring twice last week at Tottenham they haven't been scoring many goals and a Man United win to nil at 2.55 and under 2.5 goals in the game at 2.20 are much more appealing.

 SOUTHAMPTON V EVERTON

SOUTHAMPTON will have to improve massively on their midweek Europa League performance if they've got have any chance of a win when former manager Ronald Koeman returns to St Mary's on Sunday with Everton.

The Saints' were woeful in Prague in their 1-0 Europa League defeat against Sparta and if they perform anywhere like that again it will be a long afternoon for the home side.

The bookies make Southampton a very short 2.20 favorites for the win and although they are expected to make wholesale changes from the European defeat that is a price that does nothing for me.

Koeman after a bright start to life on Merseyside has seen his side also struggle for form in recent weeks and the Toffees' have come unstuck recently after just one win in their last eight matches and that puts me off having a bet on them also even at the tempting 3.75

In three of their last six matches, Everton have been held to a draw and draws have been popular on the south coast as with stalemates in four of their last 11.

We saw last week in the dire 0-0 with Liverpool when a lot of Saints' old boys returned to St Mary's it's very hard to raise your game at a former club and the draw looks a decent bet in this one again at 3.50 with BoyleSports and Betfred.
