There are 6 English Premier League matches taking place on Saturday and we suggest a bet in each of them
Let’s start with a look at the latest Outright Betting in the English Premier League where Arsenal are now trading as 9/10 favourites ahead of Manchester City 21/20. You can get 35/1 Manchester United and 400/1 and better the balance.
Bournemouth v Liverpool – Click here to bet
Bournemouth are currently bottom of the table with just 1 win in their last 10 starts. They are coming off a 3-2 away defeat to Arsenal, a game where they led 2-0 and lost to the last kick of the match.
Liverpool are currently 5th on the table and are on a good run which has seen them win 4 and draw 1 of their last 5 matches. They hammered Manchester United 7-0 at home on the weekend and their last away game was a goalless draw at Crystal Palace.
Liverpool’s turnaround has been the improvement of their defence and they haven’t conceded a goal in their last 5 matches, I think they make it 6 on Saturday.
Suggested Bet: Bournemouth Totals under 0.5 goals at 12/10
Everton v Brentford – Click here to bet
Everton are 18th on the log in the final relegation spot and they have only won 1 of their last 5 games. They had played to a 2-2 draw at Nottingham last time out and their last home game was a 2-0 loss to Aston Villa.
Brentford are 9th on the log and are undefeated in their last 12 matches in the League. They beat Fulham 3-2 at home last time out, the 3rd successive game that both teams have found the back of the net in Brentford fixtures.
These sides played to a 1-1 draw earlier in the season. Brentford did the double over Everton last year.
Bookmakers are battling to separate the teams with Everton 17/10 and Brentford 18/10 while the draw at 22/10 is certainly a runner, I like the away team to continue their good form and get the 3 points.
Suggested Bet: Brentford win at 18/10
Leeds v Brighton – Click here to bet
Leeds are 17th on the log and very much involved in the relegation battle. They have only won 1 of their last 10 matches and have lost 3 of their last 4. They went down 1-0 at Chelsea last time out and their last home game was a 1-0 victory over Southampton.
Brighton are 8th on the log and are coming off a big 4-0 home win over West Ham. Their recent away form has been solid and they are undefeated in their last 5 with 2 draws and 3 victories.
Brighton beat Leeds 1-0 at home in the reverse fixture and both games were drawn last season.
I am not reading too much into the Leeds home win over Southampton, I think that Brighton are playing by far the better football and will take the 3 points.
Suggested Bet: Brighton win at 1/1

Leicester v Chelsea – Click here to bet
Leicester are currently 15th on the log and are on a run of 3 successive defeats including losing 1-0 at Southampton last time out. Their last home game was a 1-0 loss to Arsenal and they haven’t scored in their last 3 games.
Chelsea booked their spot in the quarter-finals of the Champions League in midweek and they also broke a 5 match run without a victory in the English Premier League on the weekend beating Leeds 1-0.
Chelsea’s last 7 games have all delivered profits had you backed under 2.5 goals and against the Leicester team struggling to find the back of the net I am looking for that run to be extended.
Suggested Bet: Under 2.5 goals at 17/20
Tottenham v Nottingham – Click here to bet
Tottenham are currently 4th on the table with 3 wins and 2 losses in their last 5 starts. They would have been disappointed to have been beaten 1-0 away at Wolves last time out, but their last two home games were 2-0 victories over Chelsea and West Ham. Sadly they bowed out of the Champions League on Wednesday night.
Nottingham are 14th on the log, but will be looking over their shoulders at the relegation zone, having not won in their last 4 games. They drew 2-2 at home to Everton last time out, their last away game was a 4-0 hammering by West Ham.
Nottingham have the worst away record in the English Premier League and I am backing Tottenham to win this game by more than a goal.
Suggested Bet: Handicap, Tottenham -1.5 at 12/10
Crystal Palace v Manchester City – Click here to bet
Crystal Palace are 12th on the log, but they are now on a 9 match run without a victory during which time they have had 5 draws and 4 losses. They went down 1-0 away at Aston Villa last time out and amazingly their last 4 home games have all been draws.
Manchester City are 5 points behind Arsenal at the top of the table and they beat Newcastle 2-0 at home last time out. City’s recent away form has been strong with a 4-1 win over Bournemouth and a 3-1 defeat of Arsenal.
City beat Palace 4-2 at home earlier in the season and I expect them to get the win here. The last three times these sides have met at Crystal Palace there have been 2 goals or less in the match and I think we could be in for another low scoring encounter.
Suggested Bet: Under 2.5 goals at 11/10
