The Premier League is back with a bang this week after the international break, and I am banking on there being plenty of goals in Swansea City v Tottenham Hotspur, Wigan Athletic v Norwich City and Aston Villa v Liverpool.
If there’s one thing to blow off the cobwebs that international football causes for a Premier League enthusiast, it’s an exceedingly large amount of goals, and it won’t half make those yummy Easter eggs taste even better if those goals can provide some prize money.
If you back this treble with the free £20 bet you receive for opening a bwin account, then you could find £110.50 winging its way to your wallet.
Over 2.5 goals in Swansea v Tottenham @ 83/100
In what should be a fascinating encounter between Michael Laudrup and Andre Villas-Boas, Swansea entertain Spurs with both teams coming into the game on the back of two consecutive league losses.
A Tottenham away game usually means goals, with 12 of their 15 trips seeing over 2.5 goals scored this season.
Swansea have been much tighter on the road, but at the Liberty they have also been in the goals, with ten of their 15 home games featuring three or more strikes.
Spurs have a point to prove after their recent bad patch and with Gareth Bale and Michu on the field, anything is possible.
Over 2.5 goals in Wigan v Norwich @ 83/100
Every Christian will tell you that Easter is a time for impossible comebacks, as will any loyal Wigan Athletic fan.
Roberto Martinez always finds his team in trouble up until around this point of the season, but always manages to turn it around by the end, and the dramatic 2-1 win over Newcastle last time out could prove to be the catalyst for another great escape.
There have been oodles (very under-used word, that) of goals at the DW Stadium this season, with 12 of 15 games featuring over 2.5 goals, and the Latics actually top the league when measured by participation in games with three goals or more.
Norwich are towards the bottom of that table, but that is mostly down to their lack of goals scored and conceded at Carrow Road.
In away games, the Canaries nearly average a high-scoring outing every other match and given what is on the line, I’d say it’s likely that this clash will be another one.
Over 2.5 goals in Aston Villa v Liverpool @ 13/20
Sunday sees Brendan Rodgers take his Liverpool side to Villa Park in an attempt to avenge their shock 3-1 defeat at the hands of Paul Lambert’s men at Anfield in December.
Like Wigan, Villa are desperate for points as they scrap against relegation from the top flight and with 17-goal Christian Benteke up front, they have every chance of bothering Pepe Reina this weekend.
The Belgian striker terrorised the Liverpool backline at Anfield and Reds forwards Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge will be hoping to do the same to the Midlands outfit.
Twelve of the Merseyside club’s 15 away games this season have seen over 2.5 goals scored, as have almost half of games at Villa Park in the Premier League this campaign.
With Steven Gerrard and Philippe Coutinho in their ranks, the away side will fancy their chances of finding goals, but their defence looked shaky against Southampton last time out and Villa will be equally confident of getting on the scoresheet.
