EPL Odds

EPL Odds.
This weekend punters will be trying to cash in on a home treble of Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal as they all face arguably weaker opposition.

Chelsea face in form Middlesbrough, although Gareth Southgate's side have lost seven out of 13 on the road this season while Chelsea are unbeaten at home.

Manchester United should see off bottom but one side Charlton Athletic, especially after such a convincing display in their 4-0 win at Spurs last weekend.

The treble culminates on Sunday when Arsenal, also unbeaten at home, play a Wigan side who have just ended a run of eight straight league defeats.

Reading look a good bet to continue their unbeaten run in 2007 against an Aston Villa team which have lost their last four away matches. Leroy Lita, with nine goals in his last nine games, will relish the chance to continue his remarkable goal scoring run.

Liverpool, after last weekend's goalless draw with local rivals Everton, could return to winning ways at St.James' Park against Newcastle United who are susceptible in defence.

Sheffield United suffered a last minute defeat at Blackburn last weekend but could claim a point against visitors Tottenham Hotspur. Martin Jol's side may not fancy the Blades' physical style of play but they have ground out five draws on their travels this season.

With Wigan expected to lose this weekend, West Ham have a great opportunity to make up ground on them with a win against Watford. The Hornets shocked Alan Curbishley's side earlier in the season with an FA Cup win but they are without an away victory in the league all season.

Both Portsmouth and Manchester City are out of form and could both pick up a welcome point with a draw at Fratton Park. Expect a low scoring match as shot-shy City have failed to score in their last three league matches.

On Sunday, Bolton welcome draw specialists Fulham to the Reebok Stadium. Chris Coleman's side have drawn seven out of 13 away this season but Bolton have won the same number of matches at home. Still chasing Arsenal for the coveted fourth place, Bolton's need for three points is greater than that of their opponents.
