Tottenham’s frustrations hit new heights and could have secured 10 consecutive wins had defeated West Ham, but the North London side conceded a goal in the 65th minute and couldn’t find a way to recover. That loss fit in perfectly with Chelsea’s title hopes, as now the gap between the London sides widened to four points, with the Blues still having to play Middlesborough in their game in hand. Liverpool has to settle for a draw at Anfield, but Manchester City are just a point away and with a game in hand in fourth place. Both Klopp and Guadiola will be adamant to secure the third place spot to avoid Champions League play-offs in the summer months. We’ll take a closer look at the big clashes of the week and the information you should be analyzing when placing a bet on the Premier League for the week.
Bet on Tottenham vs Manchester United
Spurs must be feeling totally de-motivated and will surely want this season to be over after their title ambitions hit a brick wall with their most recent defeat to West Ham. Manchester United have been to inconsistent this season and their most recent defeat to the Gunners has sent their form spiraling down. The red devils collected eight points from a maximum of 15 as opposed to Tottenham’s 12. Spurs are the clear favorites to emerge victorious at White Hart Lane with odds set at 1.72. Tottenham will be seeking revenge over Mourinho’s men as the first round of this fixture saw the red devils collect all three points.
Both over 2.5 goals and under 2.5 goals are priced at 1.92 and it’s important to keep in mind that three of Spurs last five games all ended in under 2.5 goals while Manchester had all their last five matches end with two or less goals. The red devils haven’t beaten Tottenham at White Hart Lane since 2012 and odds for them to get something out of this game (double chance betting) are priced at 2.18. Harry Kane has good odds for scoring at any time at 2.04 but if you think the young Rashford will find the net at any time, you’ll discover that a tenner will return £41.10.
Bet on Liverpool
Liverpool were held by Southampton an Anfield over the weekend, effectively narrowing the gap in points between them and fourth placed Manchester City. They now face West Ham in their next quest for three points, points which will be desperately needed to avoid slipping down fourth place. Their opponents have not lost a game from their last five and are buzzing off their most recent victory over title chasers Tottenham.
Liverpool are the huge favourites to emerge victorious, with odds currently priced at 1.63, as opposed to West Ham’s 5.25. Liverpool are the second highest scoring team of the Premier League with 71 goals and here at Unibet, we’re all expecting a thriller after the goalless bore we’ve witnessed over the weekend. However, it’s pertinent to note that Liverpool have been dismal in front of goal lately, scoring five measly goals. But will they find their form in time to secure automatic qualification to the Champions League next season?
Bet on Manchester City
Manchester City are now unbeaten in their last five games and gave their fans something to cheer about with their latest hammering over Crystal Palace. Klopp now stands in the way of City’s Champions League play-off nightmare, where the exhausted players will need to endure a number of games to secure qualification to the Champions League. They now face Champions Leicester City, a team that’s been constantly improving after Ranieri’s departure. City have odds of 1.25 to collect all three points at the Etihad Stadium, but if you think Leicester have what it takes to get something out of this game, you should consider handicap betting, as odds are priced at 4.10. Manchester City lost twice to the foxes last season and the last time City came out on top was back in March of 2015. If you think Manchester City will carry their goal scoring momentum to their next clash, try handicap betting on city, as odds are set at 2.50 for them to win with a difference of three goals or more.
