- Watford vs Tottenham – With injuries mounting up, a loss of form in key players and an obvious lack of confidence, Tottenham are absolutely there for the taking at the moment (W1 D1 L3). The bookies tend to give sides like Spurs too much respect – why are Watford, in the midst of W4 D1 L0, a 21/10 shot here? No matter, we’ll be backing Nigel Pearson’s yellow army here at a princely Double Chance price.
- Southampton vs Wolves – The Saints have been a pet project in this column for a while now, and backers are finally reaping the rewards with four wins in their last five. They play attractive, enterprising football, and in Danny Ings possess one of the most in-form forwards in the land. Wolves somehow failed to beat depleted Newcastle last time out, and that’s three without a win for the Midlanders now. They might find Southampton to be too hot to handle here.
- Fulham vs Middlesbrough – The Boro are playing some excellent and most importantly winning football at the moment, with four victories coming in their last five games. Confidence is a premium in football, and that’s something Fulham seem to be shy of right ow – especially with Aleksandr Mitrovic sidelined. The Cottagers’ formline isn’t bad (W3 D1 L2), but they beat Hull last time out with an Expected Goals count of just 0.2. They are getting by on the seat of their pants at the moment….
- AFC Wimbledon vs Peterborough United – Peterborough are well in the doldrums at the minute, with a run of form W1 D2 L3 franked by just two goals scored. The rumoured sale of talisman Marcus Maddison is hardly ideal then either. Wimbledon, while not great, have beaten capable sides like Doncaster and Bristol Rovers of late, and lost by single-goal margins to decent outfits like Oxford (fifth) and Portsmouth (eighth). The Dons should be able to claim a positive result here.
- MK Dons vs Sunderland – The ideas of Phil Parkinson seem to finally be getting through at Sunderland, who have blasted Lincoln and Wycombe in their last two outings, scoring seven goals. MK Dons are more of a gritty outfit than a quality one, and while they have been solid on home soil of late Sunderland are currently on one of those runs where they can’t wait to pull on the red and white shirt and get to work.
