Let’s take a look at who is winning and who’s not in the run to New Year.  There are some profitable trends emerging.  Christmas is cancelled at St Jame’s Park, well almost, Alan Pardew has cancelled the annual Christmas Party.  He doesn’t think the fans will appreciate the team celebrating  when they have lost 6 of the last 7 Premier League games.  Just two points shy of the relegation zone.  All after a promising start to the season.  Taking all competitions into account the tally reads just 1 win in the last 11 games. 

Newcastle’s next game is at home to QPR, Saturday 22nd Dec, at 3pm. 

QPR have seen a load of draws recently.  QPR have lost the last 3 and drawn 2 in the last 5 matches.  Both teams average roughly 1 goal. Newcastle conceded 1 goal on average when they play at home, whereas, QPR concede nearly 2 when they play away.  Taking into account Newcastle’s inadequate recent form the following score lines look likely, 1 – 1 draw, 1 – 0, or, 0 – 1.   

Man United are sitting pretty witha  5 Premier League game winning streak. In the correct score department Man United have produced a 1 – 0 score line in 50% of their games in the last 10 in all leagues.  What’s more the team are ending the year supreme after qualifying for the Champions League, and with a big four beating, Barclays Premier League table topping position. 

Man United play Swansea City next, Sunday 23rd December at 1.30pm. 

Man United score nearly one more goal than Swansea when they play away and are stronger using various other stats.  Man United will be priced at the bookies to win, so the odds will be short.  A good way to get a little more from a Man United is to bet for both teams to score.  

Norwich is on a winning streak having won 3 of their last 4 matches.  A substantial result which was compounded by a 2 – 1 home win against Wigan.  Wigan having never beaten Norwich in the league, this was no surprise.  This was Norwich’s fifth straight home win.  Next game is away against West Brom. Norwich’s away performance is more difficult to predict. 

Watch out all good streaks come to an end. 

QPR ended a 17 Premier League game loosing streak against Fulham recently.  Home team advantage making the difference possibly. QPR 2 Fulham 1 was the result. Fulham concede an average of 2 goals each away game. Matched against a suitable side Fulham are an attractive correct score bet. 

Bore draw

Stoke and Everton are the Premier League’s draw specialists with 9 drawn Premiership games in the last 17. Everton have drawn 7 of their last 10 games.    West Ham v Everton Sat 22nd at 3pm looks likely to draw, and, Newcastle United v QPR is also a high confidence draw prediction match.  Anyone betting on these matches needs to get over to Bet365 for the Bore Draw offer.  If the games draws all loosing bets will be refunded. 

Clean Sheets

Man United are notoriously good at keeping clean sheets, but, an even better trend is Tottenham at home.  They just can’t keep a clean sheet and have managed just one when they play at home.  They play Stoke City on Saturday 22nd December at 3pm.  Worth a lay bet on Betfair against a win with a clean sheet
