Manchester United to beat Aston Villa @ 67/100
I’ve written in the last couple of weeks that I’m looking to oppose Aston Villa at every opportunity and I’ll certainly be putting Manchester United as the cornerstone of my banker treble. Yes, United will be smarting from their humiliating Carling Cup defeat to Crystal Palace in midweek but Sir Alex Ferguson will probably field an entirely different eleven at Villa Park and the odds of 67/100 are actually better than I was expecting. Villa may have lost just one home match (to West Brom) but their fixtures thus far – Blackburn, Wolves, Newcastle, Wigan, West Brom and Norwich – could hardly have been easier. The Red Devils are unbeaten away from home this season (4-2-0) and haven’t lost at Villa Park in 17 games. I expect that to be 18 come Saturday evening.
West Ham to beat Burnley @ 57/100
After a sticky start to life in the Championship, West Ham have really clicked into gear and they should make light work of Burnley at Upton Park. Struggles at home held West Ham back early in the season but that is starting to change. The Irons have posted a 4-1-1 record in their last six home games and only Cardiff and Southampton can now better West Ham’s total of 13 home points thus far. Despite winning two on the bounce, Burnley have been disappointing so far and wildly inconsistent (they had lost four on the spin prior to those back to back victories) and have long struggled against the better sides. The Clarets won just one of their games away to the top half last season and have already lost two of three this term.
Stevenage to beat Stourbridge @ 1/2
Southern Premier side Stourbridge have done brilliantly well to reach the second round of the FA Cup by beating League Two Plymouth Argyle in a replay in the last round but I fear Stevenage are a completely different proposition and I don’t see another giant-killing at the War Memorial Ground. Promoted via the League Two play-offs last term, Stevenage have a third successive promotion in their sights as they close in on the top six again. Graham Westley’s side have won three of their last four away games, drawing the other, and should have too much for a side 89 places below them in the football pyramid.
