fulham v blackburn / norwich v wba


last season I backed clint DEMPSEY to score as he has a penchant for netting against blackburn rovers.. he duly obliged and his recent record is now 'scored in 4 of his last 5 games' against blackburn

not bad... sometimes these little peculiarities have a habit of continuing for a while - much more than they should statistically but always worth watching out for

unibet have him as 5/2 to score anytime which may be worth a flutter; 13/2 with william hill for first scorer if you want to be more specific

game-wise it's a basement battle although that is a bit unrealistic as fulham should do ok; blackburn were very unlucky home to everton when losing and will no doubt improve but do look a bit short of talent - perhaps a battling draw is the best option here as fulham are 4/6 generally - there have been all results in the recent history  so not much to go on

recent fulham form indicates a 1-0 home win as they have been very tight at the cottage and usually do well against lesser lights


I personally think WBA have been unlucky this season and this could be a bit of a surprise with them nicking it in a fairly high-scoring game > 9/5 is available for the baggies to pinch the 3pts on the road

norwich tend to score all the time but also look weak defensively hence over 2.5 @ 10/11 appeals - also WBA have had overs in their last 6 away EPL games and have scored in their last 7 away (after a barren run prior to that)

  1. goals bets are always a bit iffy for me.. I usually do better when I go against the grain..

    WBA came in with a 1-0 win though so take the points and return a nice profit overall
