FOOTBALL BETTING: Live On Sky Sports 2: Wed 20:00
Sunderland travel to Everton in the televised clash. Its Villa V Arsenal, Blackburn V Wigan and Chelsea host Birmingham. Wednesday preview.
Birmingham defeated Everton on Saturday but the Toffees are set to make amends by beating poor travellers at Goodison Park, where Totesport quote a home win at 4/6 and finally at Ewood Park, Blackburn can be backed at evens with 888Sport to send Wigan home empty-handed.
Arsenal’s title mettle will be given a rigorous examination at Villa Park, where top four hopefuls Aston Villa are 23/10 with Betdaq to prevent the Gunners from returning to top spot by landing all three points.
Arsene Wenger’s side are 13/10 (bet365) to bounce back from Sunday’s cup reverse at Stoke but punters would be forgiven for wanting to sit on the fence and back the draw at a generous 12/5 with Paddy Power while the more ambitious can tackle Ladbrokes’ 11/2 for it to finish one apiece.
At Stamford Bridge, Chelsea come face-to-face with in-form Birmingham, who are unbeaten in 15 matches across all competitions.
Alex McLeish’s side are 13/5 with Partybets to rack up a 16th game without a defeat but it’s Carlo Ancelotti’s men, at 1/4 courtesy of Paddy Power, that can edge it and they catch the eye at 13/2 (Betfred) to grab the only goal against defensively solid City.
