It was a hard-fought battle at The Hawthorns but City proved to be too powerful for West Brom, marking their eighth consecutive victory. Mourinho got the job done at Old Trafford, collecting three very important points against the Spurs, who were missing their star forward due to injury. Leicester City are now unbeaten in their last four games and sporting back-to-back wins, rapidly moving up to 11th. Chelsea will need to re-group following their hammering in Rome in the Champions League, as they now face Manchester United in their quest for their third successive win. Everton will need to take advantage of Watford’s back-to-back losses to get out of the relegation zone, however, their dismal form has been discouraging Premier League betting fans from backing them all season. We’ll take a closer look at the best bets of the Premier League for the weekend.
Bet on Tottenham
Tottenham play Palace next, a team who’s been struggling to find their form, sitting at the bottom of the table. Spurs will want to bounce back their defeat to Manchester United with a convincing win as the gap between them and Manchester City is already at eight points.
Crystal Palace have already conceded 21 goals this season, more than any club in the Premier League and their lack of creativity in the opponents’ half is what makes punters opt for betting on ‘one team to score’. Odds for this bet are priced at 1.84, a great price to add to your multiples bet.
Four of their last six meeting ended in under 2.5 goals and only one team scored, with just two games ending in over 2.5 goals. Odds for under 2.5 goals is set at 2.65 and 1.50 for three or more goals in the game. Backing Spurs to win will only return £12.20 from a £10 bet, but for better odds, consider handicap betting on Tottenham with odds of 1.64.
Bet on Chelsea vs Manchester United
Conte was furious with the atrocious defending against Roma, conceding in the first 40 seconds of the game to go on and lose three-nil. A significant loss in the Champions League is always going to affect players psychologically but the Blues need to focus on getting their next three points, as they’re already nine points away from the league leaders.
Chelsea are the favourites to win with odds priced at 2.50 and a tricky one to predict. Mourinho’s style on the road is to close the back and defending as a unit to avoid conceding and under 2.5 goals seems to the most likely. Odds for this bet are set at 1.64 while both teams to score is priced at 1.91.
From their last six meetings, both teams scored and the match ended in over 2.5 goals on only one occasion. Odds for one team to score has odds of 1.86 and 2.30 for over 2.5 goals. Odds for United not to lose the game (double chance betting) is priced at 1.56, well priced considering the bet is covering two outcomes.
Bet on Liverpool
After three weeks without a win, Liverpool got three convincing points at home to Huddersfield to move them up to sixth. They now face West Ham on the road in which they are the favourites to emerge victorious with odds of 1.70 – a great price for your accumulator. Although, betting on goals is always an interesting option when Liverpool due to the total number of goals scored in each game. Over 2.5 goals is priced at 1.66 and both teams to score at 1.62.
Liverpool don’t have the best record against West Ham, losing four of their last six meetings, however, Klopps’ men steamrolled over West Ham in the exact same fixture last season, beating them four to the good. Four from their last six ended in over 2.5 goals, hence the low odds for this bet (1.66)
