The English Premier League title race really heats up now as we hit the last quarter of the football season. It's been a long time since the Premier League title race was so closely contested and every single game is now like a final. Not only is the title race so closely contested but the race for the Champions League, Europe in general and the battle to avoid relegation are all going to go to the wire.
The Premier League fixture list kicks off at 3 o' clock Saturday as there's no early kick off this weekend. Birmingham vs Arsenal and Chelsea vs Aston Villa will be 2 of the featured matches during the afternoon. Niclas Bendtner looks decent value to continue his goal scoring run and fire the Arsenal to another 3 points vs Birmingham while Chelsea will have to be wary of the on fire John Carew who is over priced in the anytime goal scorer market @ best betting price of 7/2. Wolves vs Everton is an intriguing fixture as both teams are in tremendous form but odds against on an Everton away win looks good value as Saha is back and should start.
Elsewhere in the English Premier League, the 5:30 kick off sees current league leaders Man UTD vs Bolton at the Reebok, where Bolton will have to somehow stop a Wayne Rooney in the best form of his life. A great value betting opportunity in Saturday's games is Tottenham vs Portsmouth where Frederic Piquionne can be had @ 9/2 to score (probably bigger when price comes out on the betting exchanges) and a whopping 70/1 for the brace on Paddypower!
Good betting price of almost evens in Sunday's premier league fixture on the over 2.5 goals markets in the Liverpool vs sunderland game. Stay tuned for expert premier league value betting tips....

WOLVES VS EVERTON Betting Tip :
- 3.25u Everton win @ 11/10 (general) Everton in flying form at the moment and looked at their very best against City in midweek. Wolves usually struggle for goals despite scoring 3 at Upton Park and I think Wolves will need 2 goals to get anything at all against Everton - 65-70%
TOTTENHAM VS PORTSMOUTH Betting Tip:
-1u Frederic Piquionne anytime goal scorer @ 9/2 (paddypower) Tottenham always give up chances and the Portsmouth players are playing without tension and are basically in the shop window. Piquionne tends to score in batches - 40%, 0.5u Piquionne brace @ 70/1 (paddypower)
LIVERPOOL VS SUNDERLAND Betting Tip :
- 3.25u over 2.5 goals @ 17/20 (exchanges) Liverpool have found the scoring touch of late with the likes of Babel and Aquilani playing a bigger part and are always prone to conceeding. Watch out For Jones if he starts for Sunderland as he will want to impress his possible summer buyers - 70%
MANCHESTER CITY VS WIGAN Betting Tip:
-3u Manchester City corner handicap (-3) @ 5/6 (Skybet) It will be tough for Wigan to get around the back of Manchester City in this game and with Bellamy and Tevez likely to continue in the sides of a three pronged attack, expect them to hit the bylines and force corners - 70%
