Your Humble Handicapper did pretty well last weekend but there’s still plenty of money for the taking from the next round of Premier League matches.

Reading V Southampton
This game probably looked like a six pointer in the relegation scrap a few weeks ago but Southampton, after a run of good results, have climbed the table while Reading find themselves sitting dead last. The good news (for both sides) is that Southampton are 20/1 to be relegated with the sportsbooks. I think Reading are due a good result and despite the fact that Southampton have the form, and played Chelsea off the pitch last weekend I think Reading will take the points and keep things interesting down at the foot of the table.
Reading win which is available at 2/1 and specifically 2-1 which is available at 12/1 with Bet Victor.
Norwich V Swansea
I don't think either side will bother either the relegation zone or a champions league spots this season and will therefore probably both be satisfied with a draw. Which is available at 9/4 and if you to twist my arm for a score I'll say 1-1 which soccer odds makers are listing at 5/1.
Stoke V Aston Villa
Stoke have a horrible away record this season, but Aston Villa have had an even worse run of it. Villa start the weekend below the dreaded dotted line, but just on goal difference.
Stoke tend to not lose at home having just been bested twice on home turf this season. Compare that with Villa only winning three games away all season and I think this game will be a home victory.
West Brom V Arsenal
Arsenal are on form and they are now 4/6 on top four finish and more interestingly 9/4 to be the top London club in the league. They can also take heart from the fact that Chelsea beat Manchester United on Sunday and will have the FA Cup to worry about, but I think that the Gunners won’t be in the mood to drop any more points at this stage of the season and it's just West Brom's bad luck that they face them next. Arsenal win, available at Evens.
Liverpool V West Ham
Despite West Ham’s very good result against West Bromwich Albion I don't think they will make it back-to-back victories as Liverpool are on a very tidy little run of their own and have home advantage, so will take all three points. Liverpool win available at 4/11.
Tottenham V Everton
I was pretty much spot on with my prediction for Tottenham's victory over Swansea last weekend and I have it on good authority from my friend Roy who is a Tottenham supporter that they will manage to beat Everton. A Spurs victory is available at Evens while an Everton victory is 3/1. I think that Everton will upset Spurs fans, especially Roy and they will take all three points although your Humble Handicapper wouldn't think any the less of you if you bet on a draw, available at 3/1.
Chelsea V Sunderland
Chelsea may well have the FA Cup to distract them but Sunderland would love to have their problems. The Black Cats are just one single solitary points above the drop zone and although they have a far superior goal difference to all the teams below them they certainly can't afford to take their Premier League survival for granted especially not with Wigan making their traditional end of season push. Long story short - Sunderland will fight but I think Chelsea will come out on top as the Blues are just too good to be beaten by Sunderland at home. Back a Chelsea victory available at 6/17.
Newcastle V Fulham
Another side who aren't comfortably clear of the dreaded dotted line is Newcastle, who are just three points above 18th place Aston Villa. Despite back-to-back defeats for Newcastle and midweek Europa League commitments I think the Geordies will take all three points from this match, not least because they need the points more than Fulham. Back a Newcastle victory at 19/17.
QPR v Wigan
Wigan looked to be yet again turning on their masterclass of how to survive the drop but I think that as this season is looking so very thrilling at the bottom QPR will take the points and close the gap on Wigan to just four points.
Back Rangers in this game at 19/13.
Manchester United V Manchester City
We’ve saved the best till last. The clash between these two clubs last season was possibly the most significant win for City on their way to lifting the title, but whatever happens on Monday night won’t make any difference to the league. All City can go for is a mighty scalp, but I don't think they can to get it. The best City can hope for is a draw at 13/5. A home win is at 21/17 and a City win is a money spinning 5/2.
