Opta Stats: Get on 20/1 shot in Liverpool v Fulham

Martin Jol needs his Fulham side to pick up a result

Lewis Jones has studied the Opta gold and has dug out a monstrous 20/121.0 selection to attack at Anfield along with three other stat-inspired bets...

"Fulham have kept three clean sheets in their last five Barclays Premier League visits to Anfield."
Best Bet: Back a 0-0 correct score @ 20/121.0

Liverpool v Fulham (Saturday, 15:00)
Fulham have kept three clean sheets in their last five Barclays Premier League visits to Anfield
The Martin Jol pressure cooker may have been turned down a notch come 5pm on Saturday if his Fulham side can perform at Anfield with their usual defensive dependability. The odds for this clash have deeply underestimated the Cottagers as inconsistent Liverpool are always vulnerable to slipping up against a middle of the road side who travel to Merseyside with a game plan focused around keeping a clean sheet. Both Stoke City and West Ham United battled and scrapped their way to a 0-0 last season and Fulham, who have only conceded six goals away from home this term, can add their name to that list.
Best Bet: Back a 0-0 correct score @ 20/121.0

Aston Villa v Cardiff (Saturday, 15:00)
Cardiff have only conceded eight goals in five away games, the same amount as Man Utd (8) and fewer than Man City (9)
Malky Mackay's side have restricted their opponents to one goal or less in three of their five road trips since returning to the Premier League. Up against an Aston Villa side who are in the midst of a goal drought stretching over six hours, faith should be with the Bluebirds to be defensively solid. However, Cardiff have only scored four when venturing out of south Wales, therefore rather than backing the visitors to get a result, target the goals market.
Recommended Bet: Back under 2.5 goals @ 5/61.85

Chelsea v West Bromwich Albion (Saturday, 15:00)
Chelsea have scored 76 goals in their last 26 Saturday 3pm Premier League games at Stamford Bridge, an average of 2.9 per game
When kicking off at the traditional time, Chelsea are ravenous in front of their own supporters. Stats and trends buffs will be licking their lips at the price on a home win despite its minuscule nature. The Blues have roared to success in 12 of their 14 Premier League games against West Brom and under the watch of Jose Mourinho the west Londoners are on a 64-match unbeaten home run in the league.
Recommended Bet: Back Chelsea to win @ 2/71.29

Tottenham v Newcastle (Sunday, 12:00, Sky Sports 1)
Tottenham have scored only 34 goals in 24 Premier League home games under the tutelage of Andre Villas-Boas
This will be an intriguing clash between two teams with contrasting styles. Methodical Spurs will play the waiting game with the ball while powerful Newcastle will employ an explosive and confident counter attacking style, as seen to great effect in their brilliant 2-0 win over Chelsea. This tactic will pose plenty of problems for Spurs, who will be expected to match the Toon's enthusiastic attacking play by an expectant home crowd.  
Recommended Bet: Lay Tottenham @ 4/71.58
