There is no taking the smile off Fat Barry's face after yet another clean sweep, as his tips paid off once again. Some FFC punters have made themselves a nice few bob of late and it is now time to take this bookie seriously.
It's a miracle the big 3 are all playing on the same day at the same time.
Arsenal look to have a difficult game against an ever improving Villa side who themselves will have an eye on fourth spot. It will be interesting to see how Arsenal reacts to last weekend's disappointment. I believe Arsenal will come out on top and with Theo Walcott; one of the few Arsenal players to gain from last weekend, I expect his good form to continue and 5/1 on the 1st goal scorer looks good. I feel Arsenal will win the game and with a 2-0 victory at odds of 11/2, it looks good value and well worth a punt.
The top game in London today is the West Ham Vs Chelsea. Avram Grant's men look to put their Carling Cup defeat to bed but certainly won't be relishing what is likely to be a hard fault battle. I really have a feeling that West Ham will surprise many and I back them to win this game and at 10/3, surprising odds for a home team; is definitely worth a few quid. Freddie Ljungberg to score the first goal at 11/2 is a great bet for those who like an outsider.
They say when you play teams down the bottom it is a bit of a struggle but I really cant see that being the case today as Manchester United visit Craven Cottage. Teams are down the bottom because they are simply not good enough and while the neutrals will expect a cricket score, I think Sir Alex will have his mind on midweek so he may tinker with his selection. I expect United to come away with a tight victory but for those who expect goals, you may fancy the 8/1 price on a 3-0 victory.
Fat Barry's Bets
A £10 punt on three wins pays out in the region of approx £100
