Manchester City are back to winning ways as they secured their third consecutive win over Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium. Tottenham suffered a major blow to their title aspirations after losing two to the good at Anfield, effectively widening the gap between them and league leaders Chelsea. Fortunately for them, Conte’s men dropped points against Burnley and had to settle for a draw. City are now eight points away and another stumble from the leaders will bring City too close for comfort. Arsenal bounced back from their back to back losses with a solid win over Hull City, a victory that was expected by any Premier League punter. Liverpool recorded their first win from their most recent five and will need to quickly find their form if they want to play European football next season. There’s never a dull moment when betting on the Premier League and the following is information you should be analysing before placing a bet on the Premier League for the weekend.
Bet on Tottenham
From their last five encounters, the Spurs only managed to secure two wins, which is unsatisfactory if they want to maintain their Champions League spot in the table. Tottenham host Stoke in their next encounter and will be looking for all three points at White Hart Lane. The home side are expected to collect all three points and odds for them to do just that are set at 7/20. If you’re looking for more profitable return, try handicap betting on Tottenham, as odds for the Spurs to win with a goal difference of two or more are priced at 22/25.
Tottenham are unbeaten at White Hart Lane this season and have kept clean sheets in four of their last five home matches. Odds for one team (or none) to score are at 43/50, however, Stoke have a great scoring record on the road, having found the net in four games out of their most recent five. Keep a close eye on Harry Kane, as the 23 year old found the net 14 times from 20 games and odds for him to score at any time are priced at 17/25.
Bet on Liverpool
Liverpool quickly slid down the Premier League table with their dismal form from their last five games. Champions of England Leicester City are next on Liverpool’s agenda and Claudio Ranieri’s men are hovering dangerously over the relegation zone, having lost five games in succession. Liverpool are the clear favourites, with odds set at 17/25 to collect all three points. Liverpool are the highest scoring team in the Premier League with 54 goals and their form on the road is pretty decent, winning two, drawing two and losing one to Hull City. Liverpool kept clean sheets in two of their five most recent games on the road and odds for both team to score are set at 77/100.
Bet on Chelsea
Manchester City capitalised on Chelsea’s shortcomings over the weekend and their most recent draw against Bournemouth marked their second draw in as little as five games, allowing their rivals to edge a little closer. Chelsea now face Swansea at Stamford Bridge and nothing less than three points will be acceptable for Antonio Conte. Chelsea have an impressive form at home, having won 11 of their 12 matches played and eight of those victories saw Chelsea win with a goal difference of two or more.
Odds for that repeating itself against Swansea are priced at 13/20. Swansea won two and lost three of their five most recent games on the road and if you think the Swans will upset Chelsea, betting on double chance will be a smart bet to place, as it adds a little security and odds are still lucrative at 29/10.
