Live on Skysports 2: Sat 17.30: Sergio Aguero is 7/2 (Totesport) to score two or more for Man City as they welcome Blackburn.
At the Etihad Stadium, Manchester City can stay in the driving seat in terms of the title race, by beating struggling Blackburn, a result BetVictor rate at 1/5 and Roberto Mancini’s troops are worth siding with in Stan James’ handicap market where they’re 8/15 when kicking off a goal behind. Boylesports go odds against 13/10 for a Manchester City win by three goals or more while those eyeing a rout could brave Paddy Power’s 3/1 about a win by four or more. A 4-0 victory is 10/1 (Ladbrokes) while Sergio Aguero is 7/2 at Totesport to continue his rich vein of form in front on goal with a brace or better.
Also at 8/15, this time courtesy of Betfred, is a Manchester United victory at Norwich and the visitors can be combined with a match total of three or more goals at odds of 11/10 (bet365). Chelsea meanwhile, should get back to winning ways by beating Bolton but given their form, the Blues look too risky at just 2/7 with Skybet.
Arsenal and Tottenham face-off In the North London derby this weekend and it’s the Gunners that are narrow favourites at 11/8 (Boylesports) while Coral chalk Spurs up at 15/8 but it’s the draw at 5/2 (William Hill) that stands out at the Emirates Stadium, where a 1-1 scoreline can be backed at 11/2 via Partybets.
In their first match since sacking Mick McCarthy, Wolves’ form isn’t expected to improve, Paddy Power rating them at 4/7 to go down at Newcastle but fellow strugglers Wigan, despite being Betfred’s 19/10 outsiders, could pick up a maximum haul at home to faltering Aston Villa.
Sunderland also look set to upset the odds at the Hawthorns, where bet365 quote them at 2/1 to beat a West Brom side toiling badly on their own patch while QPR and Stoke are 8/5 (Blue Square) and evens (Ladbrokes) respectively, to pick up home wins at the expense of Fulham and Swansea.
