Premier League Weekend Wagers: Squeaky Bum Time [part 1]

It’s that stage of the season where things start to get a little tense, a tad nervy, but for those on the outside, very exciting. As Fergie once coined it, it is indeed squeaky bum time.

So here are a couple of games that could be worth keeping an eye on over the weekend.

Starting at the bottom of the Premier League, West Ham host Blackburn with just six points between them as the season draws to an end. West Ham have some class players in their ranks, but their overall performances have left a lot to be desired. They face a team in Blackburn who are in a real freefall since sacking manager Sam Allardyce. Their 1-0 victory over rivals Bolton last weekend could be the start of a fight to stay in the division, but they must tighten their back-line if they intend to win in London – conceding 40 away goals this season is one of the reasons they find themselves where they are.

Possible Betting Market: Demba Ba to score first, and West Ham to win – 7/1 on Bet365.

Everton clash with Manchester City in what could be the match of the weekend. The Toffees have been on an improved run since the New Year; in the last 11 games they have won six games and lost just twice. When they last played City in Manchester the Blues won 2-1, off the back of a seven game winless streak. Citizens manager Roberto Mancini may have one eye on the “4th spot” clash with Spurs in midweek, or even the FA Cup final against Stoke next weekend. Up until their 1-0 victory over Blackburn a few Mondays back, City’s away form was atrocious for a side in their position. Everton are in a fantastic position to do a season double over Mancini’s men.

Possible Betting Market: Everton to win by one goal: 7/2 on Bet365.

The full run down of Saturday's games looks a little like this: 

Aston Villa v Wigan, 15:00
Bolton v Sunderland, 15:00
Everton v Man City, 15:00
Newcastle v Birmingham, 15:00
West Ham v Blackburn, 15:00
Tottenham v Blackpool, 17:30
