The reality is that there will be good weeks and there will be bad weeks. The important thing is to win more in the good weeks that you lose in the bad.</p><p>This weekend has a lot of games that look fairly straightforward. There are some matches that are a little bit difficult to call and we’ll be looking at both of those today as they show up in my list of “tips with value”.</p><p>The first game of the weekend is also probably the biggest as 3<sup>rd</sup> placed Manchester City welcome league leaders Chelsea to the Etihad Stadium.</p><p>Pep Guardiola has done well to keep his side competitive as he comes to grips with the Premier League but it’s clear he isn’t completely up to speed yet. He’s rotated players for games and come unstuck on occasion. Antonio Conte is also new to the league but without the distraction of European football he’s been able to field his strongest side in pretty much every match. That’s led to an excellent run and now his Chelsea team go into every game thinking they will be coming away with 3 points.</p><p>As the away side Chelsea do have the higher odds in this one which may be music to the ears of some bettors but not for me. I’m looking for a home win in this one and at odds of <a href="http://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4810&book=Bet365">2.21 with Pinnacle</a>, there is more than a touch of value in my book. This should be an intriguing tactical battle and is certainly a game I’ll be sitting down for.</p><p>The action continues with five matches kicking off at 3pm. I’m only interested in two right now and will be trying to get the best odds from the night before onwards.</p><p>The first game is between Crystal Palace and Southampton. I’ve had mixed luck with these two recently as Southampton won me some money at the weekend and Crystal Palace lost it.</p><p>Instinctively I expected this to be a Southampton win but the value really is with Crystal Palace. They are going to have to buck their trend of awful results and overcome a Southampton side that is actually very good and are likely to improve on their current position of 10<sup>th</sup>.</p><p>Pinnacle are offering odds of 3.44 on the home win and I’m (somewhat reluctantly) following the value and taking a bit of that. This isn’t the first time I’ve disagreed with a particular selection and so far the system choices are way ahead of me, because of that I’m prepared to give it some leeway.</p><p>The next selection warms my heart a little as I hated betting against my own team last weekend and now I can back them. Tottenham welcome Swansea to White Hart Lane on Saturday and despite the fact they’re solid favourites (<a href="http://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4810&book=Bet365">1.36 at Bet365</a>) I feel there is some value to be had here. Tottenham have won 3 of the last 8 matches between these two and should be on course to make that 4 out of 9 this weekend.</p><p>My final bet of the premier League weekend is on the Everton v Manchester United game and after losing some money on them last time out, I’m looking for Manchester United to redeem themselves at 2.2 with SBOBet.</p><p>So not many big matches this weekend but definitely something to capture our attention.</p>
