A full list of terms and conditions, plus how to play is available here. Coral’s football experts have even given their expert opinions on this week’s featured games, which you may wish to use as a guide, or alternatively disregard.
Burnley v West Ham – Away win
The Hammers have been greedily picking up points, taking six from their last three games, and should feel confident against the Clarets, who are yet to win a Premier League match this term. Birthday boy Sam Allardyce will be expecting Stewart Downing to run riot again and give him something to celebrate.
Everton v Aston Villa – Home win
The Toffees hold the edge over Villa, having defeated the Birmingham-based side on 73 occasions. Everton did the double over them last term, with in-form forward Steven Naismith netting once against them. He will be looking to strike again, having hit home four times in seven Premier League appearances this term.
Newcastle United v Leicester City – Draw
Nigel Pearson’s Foxes and Alan Pardew’s Magpies have already notched up seven Premier League draws between them this season. Leicester and Newcastle have ended on even terms a total of 27 times in all competitions, and have cancelled each other out in four of their last eight encounters.
Birmingham v Bolton – Away win
Two teams in the bottom five of the Championship table clash at St Andrews, however the Trotters will use this an incentive to push on under ex-Celtic boss Neil Lennon. Having won silverware with the Hoops, the Bolton team may just respond emphatically against Birmingham.
Bournemouth v Charlton – Draw
Both clubs are pushing for play-off spots, with just four points separating them. Charlton, however, have four draws from their last five fixtures, while Bournemouth have two wins from three. With the away side hard to beat, this could well be a share of the spoils.
Brighton v Middlesbrough – Away win
Firmly embedded in the play-offs, Boro seem to have finally got things together. Undefeated in six league fixtures, they will be expected to extend that run and beat 19th-placed Brighton.
Fulham v Norwich – Away win
The Norfolk-based outfit look likely to go straight back up – if not as champions then certainly in an automatic spot. They sit top of the table, while Fulham are rooted in the relegation zone and, even though they have won two out of their last three league games, a victory looks unlikely against Norwich.
Ipswich v Blackburn – Away win
With Jordan Rhodes in their team, Lancashire outfit Blackburn can usually be relied upon to score goals, however Ipswich are in great form and occupy the last play-off position. They are undefeated in their last seven league matches with 15 points.
Millwall v Wolves – Draw
The Lions have not managed to overcome Wolves on their own territory in their last four attempts, being defeated twice, and so expect the visiting pack to cause problems here again. Both sides, though, have not won in their last three respective Championship games, so back a draw.
Reading v Derby – Draw
The last two battles between these two sides at the Madejski Stadium have ended in draws, with that outcome again likely. Reading have shared the spoils in two of their last three league games this term, while Derby took a point last time out.
Sheffield Wednesday v Watford – Away win
Watford have remarkably won three of their last four victories against Wednesday 4-1, including the most recent two of them being on the road. The Hornets are high-flying up in third place at present, and should sting the Owls once more.
Motherwell v Dundee – Draw
Both Motherwell and Dundee go into this match in a poor run of form, losing their last two and three respectively. Well have won three of their last four against their upcoming visitors, but currently lie second from bottom in the table. A draw could be on the cards, as was the result in the last fixture they played here in 2012.
St Mirren v Inverness – Away win
Recent head-to-heads suggest a draw in this encounter, with four of their last six matches resulting in a share of the spoils, but Caley Thistle enter the match in superb form, and find themselves up in third place. The away side should snatch a victory here.
QPR v Liverpool – Away win
Liverpool hold the historical advantage over their hosts, with 31 Premier League victories over the Hoops. QPR, meanwhile, have defeated the Reds just seven times. Harry Redknapp’s side have had a terrible start to the season and prop up the league table after tasting just one win.
Stoke City v Swansea City – Draw
The Potters and the Swans failed to find a way past each other last campaign, with both their clashes ending evenly. The two clubs have split the spoils 17 times in 52 previous league encounters, whilst in the present, Garry Monk’s men have drawn their last two outings.
