72672499.jpgDARIUS VASSELL TO SCORE FIRST FOR MAN CITY AGAINST ASTON VILLA (15-2)
The Man City striker has some interesting stats against his former club that may be worth following. He has scored the first goal in three of the fives matches he has faced them (including last two) and has a total of five in five. Playing at home, this is a fair price.
CHELSEA TO BEAT BOLTON 1-0 (6-1)
Chelsea’s record against Bolton is impressive (five wins in last six meetings and scored in last 12). With their defence watertight again (10 clean sheets in last 11 league games) it would be no surprise if, in their pursuit of an economical victory, they win by a single goal.


PLYMOUTH TO BEAT PRESTON (19-10)
With three wins from three, Plymouth can continue their late-season momentum against a Preston side that has lost five of their last six away games. And with Ian Holloway in charge there is little chance of Plymouth having one eye on their summer holidays in what is their last home game of the season.
BLACKBURN TO BEAT CHARLTON (11-10)
If this match was being played at any other time of the season Blackburn would be odds-on. Just because Charlton are desperate for points doesn’t mean they are more likely to get them. Their supposed form is overrated too (no wins in four). Blackburn have the better team and are simply overpriced.
MIDDLESBROUGH V TOTTENHAM TO HAVE OVER 2.5 GOALS (10-11)
A bet that just keeps on winning. After last week’s 2-2 draw with Arsenal this bet has now collected in a staggering 18 of the last 20 Tottenham games. There were three goals when they met earlier in the season (Spurs winning 2-1) and they shared six goals last time they met at the Riverside.

Last week: Lee correctly called that Spurs v Arsenal would have more than 2.5 goals, that Sheffield Wed would beat Coventry and that Burnley would beat West Brom.
