- Bournemouth vs Aston Villa – The Aston Villa players were out on their feet at the end of their Carabao Cup semi-final win over Leicester on Tuesday, and you wonder what condition key figures like Jack Grealish will be in for this game. And what a comedown for the Villains….against a Bournemouth side who seemed to find a bit of a groove again in the 3-1 win over Brighton last time out. The Draw No Bet kicker here is in case the Cherries’ renaissance is an oasis in a desert of mediocrity.
- Manchester United vs Wolves – There are plenty of shrewdies who will take the 12/5 about a Wolves victory here – the Midlanders carving a niche for themselves in performing extremely well against the ‘big six’ sides (W2 D2 L4). Manchester United, without Rashford, Pogba and McTominay among others, are absolutely there for the taking right now.
- Leeds United vs Wigan Athletic – Leeds got out of jail against Millwall in midweek, coming from 0-2 down to win. But that followed two defeats to Sheffield Wednesday and QPR, and from the perspective of this selection Marcelo Bielsa’s side have won just 8/29 by two goals or more this term. Wigan’s data suggests they are performing better than their actual formline at the moment, and they have only lost one of their last ten league outings by a margin of two goals or more.
- West Brom vs Luton Town – Even though their current formline is stinky, West Brom continue to perform well in the Expected Goals and chance creation stakes, and sooner or later they are going to give someone a good hiding. The ideal candidate for that is Luton Town, a side that has conceded 16 goals in their last six league outings.
- Fleetwood Town vs Doncaster Rovers – It’s hard to see why Fleetwood are such warm favourites here. They average just 1.13 points per game in their last eight, are without a win in six and have failed to score in four of those. Doncaster, meanwhile, average 2.00 points per game for the same period, are on a run of W4 D1 L1 and have kept four clean sheets in their last half-dozen.
