It’s the final round of Premier League fixtures before the last international break of the year – and as well tipping Spurs’ Welsh wizard to do the business at Craven Cottage, The Tipster is predicting a fruitful day for Bolton Wanderers and Wigan Athletic as both sides look to claim a vital three points in their bids to avoid relegation. Let’s get the ball rolling then.

Gareth Bale was in devastating form against Queens Park Rangers on Sunday and he’ll be looking to add to his three league goals this season with another against Fulham at Craven Cottage. The Welsh international has a history of scoring against The Cottagers – he opened his Spurs account at Fulhamâ€™s ground in 2007, while his headed goal last season separated the two sides in a tight clash. Bale is 3/1 to score at any time on Sunday, and The Tipster reckons this is good value.
Fulhamâ€™s last four league games have featured 12 goals â€“ including a six-goal thrashing of QPR at Craven Cottage last month. Meanwhile, Tottenham have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last five league games, with the excellent form of their strikers helping them to maintain an eight-game unbeaten streak. The Tipster expects both sides to find the net on Sunday, with 4/6 looking like a solid bet.
Mick McCarthyâ€™s side have lost six of their last eight fixtures, managing just two draws against Aston Villa and Swansea City. And during their win-less run, they have conceded 16 goals. Bottom-placed Wigan, meanwhile, have been playing well on their travels despite some disappointing results – and in the last two seasons they have beaten Wolves at Molineux. The Tipster fancies a double chance bet on Wigan to draw or win against McCarthy’s men at 4/5.
Lee Probert will take charge of The Lactics’ trip to Molineux and The Tipster is expecting plenty of cards in a feisty encounter. The 39-year-old has refereed 11 matches this season, handing out 46 yellow cards and three reds. Over 3.5 cards in this bottom-of-the-table battle is evens, which The Tipster feels represents fantastic value.
Stoke suffered a humiliating defeat by Newcastle United on Monday night followed by a long trip to Israel three days later, when Tony Pulis fielded a strong team for their 2-1 victory over Maccabi Tel-Aviv. Bolton, meanwhile, have had a week to rest after their 3-1 loss to Swansea City. Owen Coyle will see this clash at the Reebook Stadium as a good chance to register their third victory of the season and avenge last seasonâ€™s FA Cup semi-final defeat by the Potters. Bolton to beat a weary Stoke side by two goals or more is today’s audacious long-range lob from the half-way line at 11/2.
