Premier League: Bore draws…

The Premier League fixture organiser has provided the perfect conditions for a Sunday afternoon snooze in front of the TV, two games that have boredom written all over them.

First up is Everton‘s trip to the south coast to face Brighton. Both teams are languishing in the league, just above the relegation zone, and it’s easy to see why. Brighton have only scored five league goals this season and Everton only four. Yet defensively both sides have been reasonably secure. Mistakes aside, it’s difficult to see how these two attacks will create too many chances today.

Next up is another long trip to the south coast, this time by Newcastle to Southampton.

Again goals may well be in short supply. Southampton have failed to score in eight of the last nine home games in the Premier League, while Newcastle have won only one of their previous 16 visits to the Saints.

It used to be the case that betting on no goalscorer was the same price as a 0-0 score, with the advantage that own goals didn’t count. However, bookies have wised up to this and have tended to shave half a point or so off the no goalscorer price.

Instead we’ll bank on two goalless draws, and double the draw bet in both games in something of a safety net in case somehow a couple of goals are fluked.

Recommendations:

Brighton and Everton to end 0-0, 1 pt, at 7/1, William Hill 

Southampton and Newcastle to end 0-0, 1 pt, at 17/2, SkyBet 

A double of draws in both games, 1 pt, at approximately 10/1, Paddy Power
