There’s no better news to Premier League betting enthusiasts than the news of mid-week football! Manchester City maintained their eight-point lead over their city rivals with their narrow win over Huddersfield, while Mourinho had to rely on a heavily deflected goal to seal the win. Chelsea had to settle for a point after drawing at Anfield and are now 11 points away from the leaders but their upcoming clash against Swansea should see them collect all the points. Harry Kane’s moment of magic saved the day for the Spurs, however, Pochettino will need to be more clinical in front of goal to avoid slipping down the European spots of the table. We’ll take a closer look at the information we have available to help you identify the best bets when betting on the Premier League.
Bet on Watford vs Manchester United
United collected all the points against Brighton over the weekend but their performance was nothing to write home about. They now face Watford on the road, who are sporting back to back wins and Mourinho’s men need to be creative to break down Watford’s back four.
United’s away form needs improvement as they only managed to collect five points from a maximum of 15 from their five matches played and the red devils have odds of 1.65 of emerging victorious. Experience has taught us that Mourinho does not like conceding goals, especially on the road, which makes under 2.5 goals and one team to score interesting bets to consider. Choosing ‘No’ on both teams to score will make your bet successful if one team or none of the teams score and odds for this bet stand at 1.91. Under 2.5 goals has odds of 1.94. Watford have odds of 2.30 to get something out of this game (double chance on Watford) and judging by the hammering over Newcastle over the weekend, they have a very good chance of doing so.
Bet on Manchester City vs Southampton
Defending is an understatement to describe how Huddersfield played against the league leaders and the hosts goal was deflected twice before it hit the back of the net. City resilient pressure broke Huddersfield in the end, but the newly promoted side put up a hell of a fight in attempt to salvage a point.
City host Southampton on Wednesday and have odds of 1.20 to collect all the points. The Saints don’t have the best record on the road and have only managed to secure five points from their last five games. City beat Southampton four times from their last six meetings, drawing one and losing the other. City, on the other hand, won all their last five home games and scored 23 goals in the process, making over 2.5 goals an interesting bet to bet on. Odds for this bet are priced at 1.36 but if you’re looking to back City with higher odds, try handicap betting, as currently the odds for them to win with a goal difference of two or more are set at 1.46 and 2.28 for a goal difference of three or more.
Bet on Arsenal vs Huddersfield
It’s another tough clash for the visitors as they now face the gunners after a stressful matchday against City. Arsenal had to rely on a late penalty to collect all the points against Burnley and that win marks their fourth win from their last five games. Arsenal haven’t lost a Premier League home game since January and have odds of 1.21 to emerge victorious on Wednesday.
The gunners have only conceded one goal form their last five Premier League home games and we can’t see Huddersfield troubling the Arsenal defence. The visitors found the net just four time from their last five matches. One team (or none) to score is priced at 1.68 while over 2.5 goals has odds set at 1.46. We expect Huddersfield to put another defensive performance and Arsenal, like City, will most probably find trouble penetrating such a defensive squad, which makes under 2.5 goals a bet worth considering. Odds are set at under 2.75.
