Carlisle facing a tough Gigg against Bury

Following our profit making selections last weekend we've once again looked through the weekend league fixtures and picked our 'best bets'.

In the 3 o'clock kick offs our attention turned to the lower leagues. In League One Carlisle visit 'The Shakers' Bury at Gigg Lane, with both sides looking for their first League wins of the season. Opening day saw Bury gain a good point away at promotion favourites Huddersfield, which was followed up in midweek, by a 3-1 defeat of Coventry in the Carling Cup despite losing club captain Steven Schumacher to injury in the first half. On the other hand Carlisle suffered a heavy home defeat to Notts County, with their goal scoring problems highlighted by not mounting a serious chance on the visitors goal. Therefore we fancy Bury will be too strong for the Cumbrian side, with prolific goalscorer Ryan Lowe (27 goals last season) continuing his hot streak of three goals in two games, so take advantage of the attractive 13/10 price.

We also think that Arsenal are good value in their opening Premier League fixture against Newcastle at St James Park. The Gunners are best priced at 23/20 to come away from the North East with the full three points. Both clubs have had turbulent summers, Arsenal are resigned to losing influential midfielders Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri. Newcastle rarely like to be off the back pages and the rift between the club and Joey Barton rumbles on.

On the pitch Arsenal welcome back a fully fit Thomas Vermaelen to the centre of defence, its fair to say when he plays Arsenal look far more composed and concede fewer goals. Without including wantaway Nasri and Fabregas, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is likely to use Tomas Rosicky in a forward free role behind an attacking front three of Robin Van Persie, Theo Walcott and new signing Gervinho which we think will be too stong for the Toon defence thats lost the impressive Jose Enrique for a report £6 million to Liverpool. Newcastle will include new signings of their own in Demba Ba and Frenchman Sylvain Marveaux however we don't think they'll cope with the Gunners.

This fixture last year produced one of the greatest Premier League matches of all time in a 4-4 draw, we're not expecting quite the same spectacle today but think Arsenal should nudge it by the odd goal.

As it's the opening day of the Premier League season our goalscorer expert John Nash has made his selections and suggests putting them in an anytime goalscorer yankee

C. Adam (15-8) - Scored against today's opponents Sunderland at home for Blackpool last season and should be on penalty duty with Gerrard ruled out. it's worth noting Liverpool were awarded seven penalties at Anfield last term.
D. Drogba (6-5) - Loves the battle against Stoke, has a good record against the Potters scoring home and away against Tony Pulis' side in 2010/11.
B. Hangeland (7-1) - The big defender scored 4 of his 6 goals last season at Craven Cottage, one of which came against Aston Villa. We think he's got a good change of repeating that feat today.
W. Rooney (5-6) - Likely Man United penalty taker, also has a good record against West Brom, scored against the Midlands outfit last season.

Returns approximately 27-1


Bury to beat Carlisle at 13/10 (Victor Chandler)
Arsenal to beat Newcastle at 23/20 (Bet 365)
Double on the above teams pays just under 4/1

Anytime Goalscorer yankee at 27/1
