This is it! This is what makes betting on the Premier League so exciting - the final stages. Chelsea have the title in clear sights after another win over Bournemouth but the Blues mustn’t take their foot off the pedal as Tottenham are in top form! Spurs hammered four past Watford and face Bournemouth in their quest for the next three points. Liverpool’s three points at Stoke moved them up to third, however, Klopp’s men have a game in hand and should Manchester City win, they’ll replace the Reds in third. Manchester City recorded their first win in their last five games and their upcoming trip to Southampton could be troublesome, as the Saint’s form at St. Mary’s Stadium is respectable, winning three and losing to Tottenham. Manchester United cruised past Sunderland over the weekend, but their true test lies in their upcoming clash, as they host age old rivals Chelsea in the game of the week. We’ll analyse the biggest games of the Premier League for the weekend and other valuable information before placing a bet on the Premier League for the weekend.
Bet on Manchester United vs Chelsea
This clash is an all-time classic. Mourinho will host his old club and will be adamant to get something from this game, as the Red Devils are in desperate need for points, with the aim to play European football next season. United are the favourites with odds priced at 2.60 to win, however, the last time Chelsea lost to United was way back in 2012. Chelsea are priced at 2.90 to win and odds for double chance are set at 1.51. All Chelsea’s last five games ended in over 2.5 goals as opposed to United’s two. Recent history shows that clashes between these two sides didn’t yield too many goals, as only two games finished in over 2.5 goals from their last seven meetings.
Mourinho has always been an advocate of a great defence and as a matter of fact, United are the second team with the least conceded goals, after Chelsea. Betting on goals could be a smarter option for the neutral, as odds for both teams to score are set at 1.90, while over 2.5 goals is priced at 2.28. Opposing strikers are in the same boat with 17 goals each to their tally and odds for the Swedish striker to score at any time are priced at 2.70 and odds for Costa are set at 2.90. If United beat league leaders Chelsea, it will narrow the gap in points to four and make betting on the Premier League exhilarating till the final minute.
Bet on Tottenham
Tottenham are in great form, winning all their last six Premier League matches. They now face Bournemouth next and will need to make sure all three points are collected, as Chelsea could drop points at Old Trafford this weekend. Four from Spurs’ last five games ended in over 2.5 goals and odds for that happening against Bournemouth are set at 1.49. Kane is second on the goal scorer table with 19 goals and can certainly inflict some damage and with odds of 3.30 to score first, it makes it a bet worth considering. Bournemouth are without a win in three games and are quickly slipping down the table, seven points away from the relegation zone. It’s going to take something magical for Eddie Howe’s men to get something out of this game, although their last meeting ended in a goalless draw. This is the fifth time these two sides are meeting in their history, and Tottenham emerged victorious in all the other three clashes.
Bet on Liverpool
Liverpool are now unbeaten in their last six games and have moved up to third place after their most recent win over Stoke. West Brom are next on the agenda and the Reds will need to continue collecting points if they want to guarantee playing European football next season. Liverpool are the favourites and odds to emerge victorious stand at 1.85. Four from Liverpool’s last five games ended in over 2.5 goals and odds for the game ending with three goals or more against West Brom are priced at 1.96. Liverpool played an extra game and will need to secure as many points as possible in their last six games of the Premier League, as smaller teams will fight for every point to avoid relegation, upsetting bigger teams in the process.
