EVERTON TO BEAT FULHAM 1-0 (6-1)
David Moyes’s men can make it a Good Friday for us all by beating Fulham by their favourite scoreline (10 times in last two seasons) tonight. Everton never score many but have beaten the Cottagers the last five times they have played at Goodison in the Premiership. Chris Coleman has said he would be happy with a draw so Everton may have to settle for a single goal.


CHELSEA HT CHELSEA FT (EVENS)
The stats read like a horror show for Spurs: no wins in their last 20 league visits to Stamford Bridge. Martin Jol’s men only played Sevilla last night and they don’t have the squad to rotate against the Blues. With Chelsea at full strength, expect nothing other than a victory.

WEST HAM TO BEAT ARSENAL (7-1)

All good things come to an end but there is value in backing West Ham to beat an out of sorts Arsenal for the third time in succession. Obviously Wenger’s men could turn on the style but it is better to risk a quid to win seven that they don’t, than ten to win three that they do.
SOUTHAMPTON TO BEAT LUTON (6-5)
Luton are bottom having lost their last four at home (just one win in 12 in total) and won’t relish the prospect of playing a Southampton team that demolished the previously in-form Wolves 6-0 last time. At the prices this looks the weekend banker.
SUNDERLAND (4-5) WEST BROM (4-5) AND BIRMINGHAM (1-2) TO WIN
Sunderland win every week now, West Brom are still the division’s class act and Birmingham are back in form. All three are chasing promotion and all three are at home. The treble pays around 5-1.
