Swansea vs Newcastle – Over 2.5 Goals @ 19/20
Swansea have been a breath of fresh air in the Premier League this season with their free-flowing style of football, which has goal benefits at both ends. This is reflected by the fact that Swansea have scored in seven of their last eight home matches but have only kept two clean sheets in that time.
Newcastle travel to the Liberty Stadium with a Champions League place still within reach (just about) and will want to build on their win against Liverpool last weekend. With Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse leading the line in spectacular fashion – aided by the precocious talents of Hatem Ben Arfa – goals are always on the cards when the Toon Army roll into town. Alan Pardew’s men have scored in 14 of their last 16 away matches, including in a 3-1 win at West Brom on their last venture south of Tyneside, so expect a high-scoring affair here.
Reading vs Leeds – Over 2.5 Goals @ 3/4
Reading have found a rich vein of form when it matters and look all set for a Premier League return, having scored a vital 4-2 win over automatic promotion rivals West Ham at Upton Park last weekend. Neil Warnock’s Leeds side will have other ideas, though, as they still have an outside shot at a playoff place.
The Royals have won their last six home matches and the last two have come by a 3-1 scoreline so with Leeds in town, goals are definitely on the menu. Leeds are notorious for featuring in entertaining games and there have been 118 goals scored in their matches already this term at an average of almost 2.5 per match. Two away wins on the bounce will give them hope going into this one, so it’s reasonable to expect plenty of attacking action at either end.
Watford vs Blackpool – Over 2.5 Goals @ 3/4
Watford have improved dramatically in recent weeks and their home form is solid as they have only failed to score twice in their last six at Vicarage Road, keeping just one clean sheet in that time. It is also worth noting that five of those last six games at home have produced over 2.5 goals.
Blackpool, for their part, have lost their last three home matches but their last ten away league matches have all produced over 2.5 goals – including over 3.5 goals on nine of those occasions. This match should be the banker of the treble given both sides’ respective recent records and we can add this one to the betslip with confidence.
