Premier League Tips – Sunday 19 July

Norwich v Burnley

Venue: Carrow Road, Norwich | Start: 2:30 AM

One of the lower stakes games on the card this weekend, with neither side having anything to really play for. Burnley is $2.25 favourites, with the Draw at $3.30 and Norwich out at $3.50 Norwich have had a disastrous campaign, finding themselves in the last place with just 21 points.

Their woes continued last time out, falling 1-0 away at Chelsea. Burnley is in the midst of another middling campaign, sitting 10th with 51 points. They had an important game last time out, one which they ultimately drew with Wolves.

I’ll pick the more talented Burnley side in this one, with 2-1 as a likely scorecast prediction. I’d look to avoid some of the other markets for this low-stakes clash.

Head to Head: Burnley
Half-time/Full-time: Burnley/Burnley
Over/Under 2.5: Over
Both Teams Score: Yes

Bournemouth v Southampton

Venue: Vitality Stadium, Bournemouth | Start: 11:00 PM

Southampton has ensured another season in the Premier League, while Bournemouth looks likely to be relegated. The Cherries are narrow $2.40 favourites here, with Southampton at $2.88 and the Draw at $3.60.

Bournemouth has been better in recent games, beating Leicester 4-1 and narrowly falling 2-1 to Manchester City. Southampton has also picked up some decent results of late, especially a last-minute draw with United a week ago.

Given that they’ve got the huge motivation edge here, I’ll back Bournemouth to get the win. I think they’ll throw everything they’ve got into this clash as they hope to stay in the PL ahead of next season.

I don’t expect a huge margin of victory, with 2-1 looking fairly good value again. Over 2.5 goals and BTTS offer some value as supplemental bets.

Head to Head: Bournemouth
Half-time/Full-time: Draw/Bournemouth
Over/Under 2.5: Over
Both Teams Score: Yes

Premier League Tips – Monday 20 July

Spurs v Leicester

Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, London | Start: 1:00 AM

This is probably the best matchup of the week on paper, with both sides having European football to play for. Spurs open as $2.40 favourites here, with Leicester at $3.10 and the Draw at $3.40. Tottenham currently occupies 7th place on 55 points, 1 behind Wolves in 6th.

They’ve been on a decent run of recent form, picking up wins against both Arsenal and Newcastle in the last week. Leicester is clinging onto 4th place by goal difference, 3 goals ahead of United on 62 points. They had a vital win last time out, taking care of Sheffield United 2-0.

Both sides have huge stakes going into this one and I’d expect a very competitive game. I do expect it to be rather cagey and not particularly high in quality, with the $3.40 draw looking good right now. I’ll predict 1-1 on the scorecast, with BTTS a decent secondary bet.

Head to Head: Draw
Half-time/Full-time: Draw/Draw
Over/Under 2.5: Under
Both Teams Score: No

Premier League Tips – Tuesday 21 July

Brighton v Newcastle

Venue: Amex Stadium, Falmer | Start: 3:00 AM

This looks like another snoozer, with both sides essentially safe from relegation this season. Brighton is rather convincing $1.91 favourites, with the Draw at $3.40 and Newcastle at $4.33.

The Seagulls sit 15th on 37 points, 6 points and 9 goals ahead of 18th with 2 games to play. They did pick up an important point last time out, securing a 1-1 away at Southampton.

Newcastle has exceeded expectations this season, sitting very comfortably in 13th on 43 points. They fell 3-1 to Spurs last time out, but it’s hard to put too much stock in that game.

With both sides essentially on the beach, it’s a bit of a tough one to predict. $3.40 for a Draw again looks like a solid early value, with 1-1 particularly sticking out on the scorecast.

This could easily turn into a free-flowing affair, with BTTS a solid alternative option.

Head to Head: Draw
Half-time/Full-time: Brighton/Draw
Over/Under 2.5: Under
Both Teams Score: Yes

Sheffield Utd v Everton

Venue: Bramall Lane, Sheffield | Start: 3:00 AM

Sheffield United have faint European football hopes alive here, with Everton having nothing tangible to play for. The Blades unsurprisingly open as $2.20 favourites, with the Draw at $3.25 and the Toffees at $3.60.

They currently sit in 8th place on 54 points, two (plus goal difference) off Wolves in 6th. They had a rather poor performance last time out, a crushing 2-0 loss at home to Leicester. Everton sits comfortably mid-table with 46 points and have played out a sequence of draws in recent weeks.

Purely from a motivation angle, I’ll give the edge to Sheffield United here. They’ll be motivated to avenge their loss to Leicester last time out and they’ve still got solid stakes to play for.

I can see them winning 2-0 here, covering the handicap and the win to nil market. As additional bets, under 2.5 and ‘no’ in the BTTS market look solid.

Head to Head: Sheffield
Half-time/Full-time: Sheffield/Sheffield
Over/Under 2.5: Under
Both Teams Score: No

Wolves v Crystal Palace

Venue: Molineux Stadium, Wolverhampton | Start: 5:15 AM

Wolves will be looking to hold onto their 6th place position this week, with Palace firmly on the beach in 14th. They’ve opened as rather firm $1.50 favourites, with the Draw at $3.75 and Palace out at $8.50.

Wolves have been in mixed form of late, only managing a 1-1 draw with Burnley last time out. Palace has seemingly dropped off a cliff of late, falling victim to 6 consecutive defeats. With the huge motivation edge and an advantage in talent on the pitch, it’s hard to look past Wolves here. I think they get the job done relatively convincingly, leading to my score prediction of 2-0 here.

Wolves half-time/full-time looks solid as does Wolves winning to nil.

Head to Head: Wolves
Half-time/Full-time: Wolves/Wolves
Over/Under 2.5: Under
Both Teams Score: No

Premier League Tips – Wednesday 22 July

Watford v Man City

Venue: Vicarage Road, Watford | Start: 3:00 AM

This is a somewhat intriguing matchup, with City having secured second place and Watford battling to avoid relegation. The Blues open as commanding $1.30 favourites here, with the Draw at $6 and Watford out at $9.50.

Man City has been in some solid recent form, winning their last 3 league games by a combined 12-1 scoreline. Things haven’t been as great for Watford, who sit just 3 points above the relegation zone.

They had a crucial clash with West Ham last time out, but they were completely outclassed early on in a 3-1 defeat. Watford has significantly higher stakes to play for here and I wouldn’t be shocked if they pick up a result.

I especially like them at the +2 goal handicap as I’d expect them to at least keep it close here. If City isn’t at their best here, $6.50 for the Draw does seem fairly appealing. I can see this being a free-flowing affair, so over 2.5 goals and BTTS are both on my radar.

Head to Head: Draw
Half-time/Full-time: Draw/Draw
Over/Under 2.5: Over
Both Teams Score: Yes

Aston Villa v Arsenal

Venue: Villa Park, Birmingham | Start: 5:15 AM

This should be a rather hard-fought game, with both sides having something tangible to play for here. Villa will have (admittedly small) hopes of getting out of the bottom 3 and see this as a great opportunity to do so.

Arsenal sit 3 points off 6th place and will also see this as a game that helps them qualify for Europe. The Gunners are $2 favourites here, with Villa at $3.50 and the Draw at $3.75. Arsenal enters this clash off an impressive league result last time out, beating Liverpool 2-1.

Villa fared decently against Everton, but a late equalizer meant they had to settle for a draw. I can see both sides giving everything they’ve got here and can’t see a blowout either way.

$3.75 for the Draw looks like a fairly solid value, with the 1-1 scorecast sticking out in particular. This game also opens up the ‘middle’ opportunity of BTTS and under 2.5 goals.

Head to Head: Draw
Half-time/Full-time: Villa/Draw
Over/Under 2.5: Under
Both Teams Score: Yes

Premier League Tips – Thursday 23 July

Man Utd v West Ham

Venue: Old Trafford, Manchester | Start: 3:00 AM

This appears to be a one-sided affair on paper, with West Ham essentially safe and United battling desperately for top 4. They predictably open as $1.25 favourites, with the Draw out at $6.50 and West Ham at $11.

The Hammers saved their season last time out, recording a crucial 3-1 win over Watford that gives them another season in the top flight. United are currently 5th on goal difference with 62 points, getting back on track with a 2-0 win over Palace last time out.

Ultimately, it’s tough to see anything other than a United win here. It’s simply a must-win game for them, while the Hammers have likely been celebrating for the past week. I’d predict a relatively convincing win for the Reds here, likely by 2 goals.

I’ll go 3-1 on the scorecast side, with over 2.5 goals and BTTS both additional options.

Head To Head: United
Half-time/Full-time: United/United
Over/Under 2.5: Over
Both Teams Score: Yes

Liverpool v Chelsea

Venue: Anfield, Liverpool | Start: 5:15 AM

Definitely the marquee matchup of the week on paper, although only one side has something to play for. Liverpool opens as $2 favourites, with Chelsea at $3.60 and the Draw at $3.75.

The Reds have been atrocious since the return to play, choking away a 100-point season with a defeat to Arsenal last time out. Chelsea has done just enough to remain in 3rd place, managing a narrow 1-0 win over Norwich last time out. They’ve still got plenty of work to do to qualify for the CL, but a win here could see them do just that.

Liverpool is playing exclusively for pride here, which should definitely work out in Chelsea’s favour. That said, I still don’t necessarily trust them to pick up all 3 points. $3.75 looks rather generous for a Draw here, as does $7 for a 1-1 scorecast.

I do think both sides get on the scoresheet here, but wouldn’t necessarily go over 2.5.

Head to Head: Draw
Half-time/Full-time: Draw/Draw
Over/Under 2.5: Under
Both Teams Scores: Yes
