There are 3 English Premier League matches taking place on Sunday and we take a look at each of them from a betting angle.
Let’s start with an update on the Outright Betting Markets where Manchester City are currently trading as 5/8 favourites ahead of Arsenal at 17/10, you can get 25/1 Manchester United and 50/1 and better the balance.
Chelsea v Crystal Palace – Click here to bet
Chelsea are currently 10th on the log and they have only taken 1 point from the last 9 they have played for. Last time out they were beaten 2-1 away at Fulham and their last home game was a 1-0 defeat to Manchester City.
Crystal Palace are 12th on the log and they were beaten 4-0 at home by Tottenham in their last start. However their last away game was a 2-0 win over Bournemouth and they have won 2 of their last 3 away matches.
Pressure will be on Chelsea to come forward and this is where Crystal Palace are at their most dangerous since they are well capable of hitting teams the break.
I think the bookies have over-estimated Chelsea at their current price of 8/11 and based on current form I am going to back an upset win for Crystal Palace at more than 4 times the price.
Suggested Bet: Crystal Palace win at 4/1

Newcastle v Fulham – Click here to bet
Newcastle are currently 3rd on the log with just 1 defeat all season. They have dropped points in their last two games though with goalless draws away at Arsenal and at home to Leeds. Only 3 of the 9 Newcastle home matches have delivered profits for over 2.5 goal backers.
Fulham are 6th on the log and have won their last 4 matches including beating Chelsea 2-1 at home last time out. Their last two away games were a 1-0 win over Leicester and a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace. 7 of the 9 Fulham away matches have reached the 3 goal mark.
The 5/1 on offer about Fulham winning this match looks big given the current form of the sides and once again I am going to stick my neck out and go for an upset. For a more conservative punter you can also get Fulham +0.5 goal on the handicap at 16/10 and you will also collect a profit if they draw the match.
Suggested Bet: Fulham win at 5/1
Tottenham v Arsenal – Click here to bet
The big Derby match should provide us with an exciting end to the weekend with 5th placed Tottenham hosting leaders, Arsenal.
Tottenham hammered Crystal Palace 4-0 on the road in their last start, but they lost 2-0 to Aston Villa in their last home game and overall at home this season have won 6 and drawn 3 of their 9 matches. All 3 of those defeats have come in their last 4 home games.
Arsenal are top of the table, 5 points ahead of Manchester City, but they would have been disappointed with the goalless draw at home to Newcastle last time out which saw them break a 5 match winning streak. Arsenal’s away record is the best in the League with 7 wins and a draw in their 9 matches.
Arsenal beat Spurs 3-1 at home earlier in the season and Tottenham won this fixture 3-0 last season and they have won their last 3 home League games against Arsenal. Given the head-to-head record I am going to back Tottenham to put a dent in Arsenal’s title aspirations.
Suggested Bet: Tottenham win at 9/4
As a matter of interest the treble of all 3 underdogs to win on Sunday works out at 96/1
