Mythbusters: 4 double-chance football tips for Saturday
Adam Drury is backing these four favourites to slip up this weekend in his football tips. If you fancy them all, back the 10/1 four-fold.
Had you placed a £10 stake on each of Adam Drury's Mythbusters football betting tips for the 2018/19 season, your profit would be:
Crystal Palace not to beat Fulham (15:00)
Crystal Palace’s second half at Southampton on Wednesday was damaging not just in the sense that their Premier League winless run extended to three matches, but that they will be without the suspended Wilfried Zaha for Saturday’s visit of Fulham.
While Roy Hodgson’s side have won without their talisman this season, his absence will not help them end a run of scoring one goal in three league matches at Selhurst Park.
Palace have won just two of 11 league outings at home overall this season, so it will be a struggle to see off Fulham, who were unfortunate to lose at Burnley in their last away match and came from behind to beat Brighton 4-2 on Tuesday.
Everton not to beat Wolves (15:00)
Wolves have only been beaten at Manchester City in their last five away games and are a great bet to extend that run at Everton on Saturday.
Nuno Santo’s side were fantastic in their 3-0 victory over West Ham on Tuesday, creating several chances and limiting their opponents to nothing.
They have avoided defeat in four of their 11 league away games overall this season and rank sixth – above Manchester United and Arsenal – for xPts on the road this term.
A 1-0 victory over Huddersfield in midweek is not enough to be persuaded that Everton have turned a corner.
The Toffees unconvincingly beat Bournemouth 2-0 last time out at Goodison Park, having previously gone four games without a win there.
West Brom not to beat Middlesbrough (15:00)
Middlesbrough have improved after their mini-slump in December and are a good bet to avoid defeat at West Brom on Saturday.
Tony Pulis’ side have lost just two of their 15 away games this season, a run that includes taking points from top-six sides Leeds and Derby. They conceded more than once in just three of those matches.
West Brom won at bottom-club Bolton last time out, but this is a different task. The Baggies have won just one of their last five league matches at the Hawthorns, with the loss of Harvey Barnes likely to catch up with them eventually.
Sunderland not to beat Wimbledon (15:00)
Sunderland would not be in the race for automatic promotion race were it not for the goals of Josh Maja, whose extraordinary conversion rate of close to 50 per cent has allowed them to massively overshoot their xG rank (experimental361).
So this week’s sale of Maja to Bordeaux could be debilitating. None of the Mackems’ other strikers are likely to score so often from so few opportunities, while their ranking of 14th for shots on target per League One home match suggests that the goals will soon dry up.
That makes AFC Wimbledon a big price to avoid defeat. The Dons have lost just one of their last four away games and beat West Ham 4-2 in the FA Cup last time out.
