Weblog: The football punter

All geared up for a sensational Sunday

IT'S a super, sensational, stunning, staggering, scintillating, stupendous Sunday in the Premier League and us punters need to raise our game for the big occasion.

Three tasty televised clashes back-to-back require a serious winner's mentality. Harden your hearts, gird your loins and polish up your betting boots because there's no point having a tentative fiver on over 2.5 goals at 8-11 today.

No, it's time to aim high and dare to dream – I'm talking fancy correct-score multiples.

In chronological order, Liverpool might not have things all their own way at resilient but limited Norwich so it's 1-0 or 2-0 away win in the Carrow Road clash.

Then we've got a sneak preview of the FA Cup final in which Arsenal's need for league points is far greater than Hull's. The Gunners' defence is still a bit dodgy so there could be a few goals and the two most attractive scorelines are 2-1 and 3-1 to the Arsenal.

Then it's on to Goodison Park for the David Moyes derby. Everton can be forgiven their defeat to Crystal Palace last time out – the Eagles are, after all, the most in-form team in Europe – but Manchester United have been quietly stringing together a few decent results.

United have won their last four away matches in the league and I reckon the Moyes factor could freak out Everton's players. They'll look over to the dugout, see their old boss there, and instinctively aim for a battling draw or even a scrappy defeat.

Put the 1-1 draw and a 2-1 United win into the pot, stir them into a tasty stew of doubles and trebles with the other four scorelines I've mentioned and then sit back and enjoy a profitable Easter Sunday.

Norwich v Liverpool

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Liverpool have scored 15 goals in their last three league meetings with Norwich
Expert verdict
Liverpool's title charge is unlikely to be halted at Norwich – a team they have beaten 5-2, 5-0 and 5-1 in their last three meetings. Luis Suarez has scored 11 goals in his last four games against the Canaries, who are in woeful form and may struggle to contain the rampant Reds.
