Week 9 English Premiere League Betting Tips
CHELSEA vs MANCHESTER UNITED
Pick: CHELSEA WIN -140
Chelsea will host Manchester United at Stamford Bridge in a big rivalry game. I still have no confidence in this United team to be able to win games this season. The Red Devils are still a mess under Jose Mourinho. They have only won 1 of their last 5 games. Chelsea on the other hand have looked very good especially Eden Hazard. They should continue their strong season with a win here.
BOURNEMOUTH vs SOUTHAMPTON
Pick: OVER 2.5 GOALS -130
Bournemouth will host Southampton in this one. Bournemouth finds themselves in a very good position early in the season sitting in 6th position on the table. Southampton has struggled to find their stride and sit just above relegation. I think we should see quite a few goals in this match. For Bournemouth they have seen 8 of their last 9 games go over the 2.5 total. They are scoring a ton of goals and should be able to take advantage of a weaker Southampton defense. For Southampton 3 of their last 4 games have gone over the 2.5 total. Expect that trend to continue here.
CARDIFF CITY vs FULHAM
Pick: CARDIFF CITY TEAM TOTAL UNDER 1.5 GOALS -145
Cardiff City will host Fulham here and there is no reason to believe they will score 2 goals. Cardiff City sits dead last on the table. They have only scored 4 goals all season but what is even worse is that they have only created 8 big chances this season. Cardiff City has relied on sitting back against other bad teams this year. Both of their draws this year were scoreless and came against other teams in the bottom three. This one should be low scoring.
MANCHESTER CITY vs BURNLEY
Pick: BURNLEY +3 (2 WAY) -125
Manchester City will look to continue their Premier League dominance when they host Burnley. City are very heavy favorites in this game and although it is deserved, the spread seems much to high. Burnley have put together some good defensive performances lately and their play seemed to improve after their Europa League campaign ended early. They now are a much more rested team and face a Manchester City side with many players having just played for their countries over the international break. Take Burnley to keep this one somewhat close.
NEWCASTLE vs BRIGHTON
Pick: BRIGHTON DOUBLE CHANCE -140
Newcastle will host Brighton in this matchup and there is a huge separation of class between these two teams. Newcastle have failed to earn a win so far this year and sit right near the bottom of the table. Brighton on the other hand sits in 13th despite facing some very tough competition this season. The impressive thing is they have been able to compete in all those games. I like them to take all 3 points but the assurance of the double chance at these odds is too solid to pass up.
WEST HAM vs TOTTENHAM
Pick: TOTTENHAM NO BET DRAW -125
West Ham United will host Tottenham in this matchup and this one seems like a bit of a toss up. West Ham have been in fairly good form lately earning points in 4 of their last 5 matches. Their last two home games have been impressive as they earned 4 points from games against Chelsea and Manchester United. Tottenham have a lot of players coming off the international break and this is a tough game for them on the road. I see the draw being the likely result here but we have the security of a push on a Tottenham win.
WOLVES vs WATFORD
Pick: WOLVES WIN -130
Wolves take on Watford in this game. Watford got off to a blistering start to the season but have really fallen off lately losing their last 5 matches. They have also looked bad offensively as they were held without a goal in their last 2 games. Wolves have been fantastic as of late. They have won 5 of their last 6 Premier League games and have earned points in their last 7. Their defense has been outstanding as well only allowing 1 goal in their last 6 games. Back them to win here.
HUDDERSFIELD vs LIVERPOOL
Pick: LIVERPOOL WIN TO NIL -110
Huddersfield will host Liverpool in this match and I expect Liverpool to be able to keep up their stellar defensive play. They have only conceded 3 times in 8 matches this season behind the stellar play of their new Brazilian keeper Alisson. Huddersfield do not have the offense to break down the Liverpool defense. They have only scored 4 times in 8 games this season. I see this being a lower scoring game especially with Liverpool having picked up a few knocks over the international break. Take Liverpool to shut down Huddersfield here.
EVERTON vs CRYSTAL PALACE
Pick: EVERTON GOAL BANDS 1-2 -160
Everton will host Crystal Palace in this fixture in a game that is fairly tough to call. These teams play a very different style. Everton is a very offensive team without a strong defense. Crystal Palace plays strong defense but have had some trouble scoring this year. I like taking the goal bands in this one. I don’t see Everton being shut out at home but I don’t see them being able to score more than 2 goals against a strong Palace defense either. This is the safest play in this game.
ARSENAL vs LEICESTER CITY
Pick: ARSENAL -1 (2 WAY)
Arsenal will look to continue their outstanding form when they host Leicester City. They have won 9 games in a row in all competitions and in their last 5 home games they have won by 2 or more in each of them. Leicester City have been okay this year but are not in the best form. They only have been able to win 2 of their last 5 Premier League games with those wins coming against Newcastle and Huddersfield. This pick is more about the incredible form of Arsenal. I like Arsenal to win this game and we have the security of a push if they are only able to win by 1 goal.
