Jones Knows returns with his predictions and betting insights across the Premier League weekend and sees wins for Man City, Liverpool and Chelsea.
Fulham vs Wolves, Friday 8.00pm
Fulham remain in the bottom three and have been there since Boxing Day. A run of three straight defeats has really left Scott Parker’s team with work to do, especially with Newcastle welcoming back some of their key attacking players for the run-in.
Fulham’s inability to produce streetwise performances have been to blame but there is a lot of experience in that squad and quite frankly some of the players just aren’t delivering.
I think this will be a fourth defeat on the spin for Fulham, who look woefully short at 11/8 with Sky Bet, as Wolves, despite a wobbly season, have shown an ability in matches to put teams under pressure and find game-changing moments. To the fore of that has been Pedro Neto, who is only behind Bruno Fernandes, Kevin De Bruyne and Raphinha for chances created from open play (14) since the start of February. The talented youngster has two assists during that period and the chances of him grabbing a third this weekend should be snapped up at 9/2.
JONES KNOWS PREDICTS: 0-2
BETTING ANGLE: Pedro Neto to grab an assist (9/2 with Sky Bet)
Manchester City vs Leeds, Saturday 12.30pm
Has a Premier League football match ever offered up such a big price to finish 0-0? Well, you can get 20/1 with Sky Bet here. It probably should be double that in reality.
City are the top scorers in the Premier League with 66 goals and have found the net 47 times in their last 18 matches whilst Leeds have seen 95 goals scored in their fixtures this season – a Premier League high. Goals should be on the menu in a home win.
You don’t need reminding about Leeds’ inability to defend set piece situations. But I will.
