Our resident betting expert is backing both Aston Villa and the Red Devils to score at Villa Park. Also in this edition, find out why you should back Theo Walcott to inspire Arsenal to a slender win over Fulham at Emirates Stadium.
The prolific Dutch striker is continuing his impressive form at his new club. Van Persie scored against Braga in the Champions League in midweek to take his tally to an impressive 11 goals this season in all competitions. So The Tipster is backing Van Persie to net two goals or more at Villa Park at great odds of 7/2.
Sir Alex Ferguson’s men are certainly entertaining this season, with both teams having scored in eight of their 10 games in the Premier League. Meanwhile, Villa have scored and conceded in two of their last three games. So both teams to score on Saturday looks like a very good shout at 8/11.
Walcott is making a case to start in a central striking position with his recent gluttony of goals for Arsenal. The former Southampton man scored a hat-trick against Reading the in the League Cup before netting in a 2-2 draw at Schalke on Tuesday. With all that in mind, The Tipster is backing Walcott to score at any time at 13/8.
The Tipster expects Arsenal’s encounter to follow a similar course to their last game at The Emirates, when Mikel Arteta netted a late winner in a 1-0 victory over Queens Park Rangers. Arsenal have been level at half-time in three of their last four games at home. So the Tipster is backing the Gunners and Fulham to be drawing at the interval but Arsène Wenger’s men to win at very tempting odds of 3/1.
Fulham have made an impressive start to the season and the Cottagers are unbeaten in their last three games against Arsenal. With Walcott in good form, Wenger’s men should just about edge to a narrow victory, however. And The Tipster’s outrageous long shot for this edition is Walcott to score first and Arsenal to win 1-0 at brilliant odds of 12/1.
