Sky Sports’ Super 6 competition continues this week as their Christmas Rollover begins!
Over the next four weeks the jackpot will roll over, starting at £250,000 and rising as high as £1m if the prize isn’t claimed by the games played on December 23.
The matches selected by Sky this tie around come on a weekend packed full of action, including a massive tie at the Etihad Stadium, where Man City host Tottenham.
Here, we pick through Sky Sports’ chosen matches and offer you tips and predictions, using Opta data to guide us.
Arsenal 3-1 Wolves
Mikel Arteta’s side have picked up 10 points from a possible 15 over their last five games, keeping pace with the likes of Man City and Liverpool at the top of the Premier League. Despite this they have conceded four goals in those five games. Wolves, on the other hand, have picked up seven points in the same period, whilst scoring and conceding nine goals. Wolves should be looking to get on the scoresheet in this one but Arsenal should prove to be too strong for Gary O’Neil’s men.
Brentford 2-0 Luton
Brentford have continued their inconsistent form this season, losing their last two games and ending a run of three wins on the bounce, as a result. They’ve also failed to find the net in their last two games following a run of eight goals in three games previously. Luton picked up their first home Premier League win at Kenilworth Road last time out, ending their own poor run of form which saw their winless run stretch to six games. Despite two poor results in a row, Brentford should prove to have too much for the Hatters and we’re backing the Bees to buzz this weekend.
Nottingham Forest 1-1 Everton
Notts Forest have lost three of their last four games, conceding nine goals along the way. This is a very different fixture though, with Everton still reeling following their points deduction a fortnight ago. The Toffees had been on a run of four games without a loss, including three wins, but had their fire extinguished last time out when Man United left Goodison Park with a 3-0 win. Both sides might be entirely deflated at the moment, albeit for different reasons, and that could lead to a drab, low-scoring draw this weekend.
Newcastle 2-1 Man United
Newcastle, complete with injury crisis, have struggled somewhat in the league recently, failing to register consecutive wins since the end of September. Victory in their last game, a 4-1 win over Chelsea, would need to be followed up by three points against Man United this weekend to buck that trend. Man United enter this match top of the form table, having won four of their last five games but there are still plenty of problems at Old Trafford. Something special seems to be brewing at Newcastle and we think they’ll come out on top on Saturday evening.
West Ham 2-1 Crystal Palace
West Ham put an end to their poor league form, with wins over Nottingham Forest and Burnley, moving back into the top half as a result. Crystal Palace are in rotten form, losing four of their last five but have scored six goals in that time. Interestingly, this is one of the highest scoring fixtures in the Premier League. Both teams have scored in the last 12 meetings between the two sides, with nine of those matches having over 2.5 goals. We think this one follows suit, but there should be more misery for the Eagles.
Man City 3-2 Tottenham
We’ve seen some all-time classics featuring these teams over the past few weeks, with Tottenham’s loss to Chelsea being one of the most remarkable games in Premier League history, whilst Man City’s 4-4 draw with the Blues was one of the best showings of attacking football seen in recent memory. There should, therefore, be plenty of fireworks at the Etihad this season when City and Tottenham clash. The last five league games featuring Man City have seen 23 goals, whilst the last five featuring Spurs have seen 16 goals scored, indicating there could be plenty of goalmouth action in the weekend’s biggest tie.
