There are two English Premier League matches taking place on Tuesday and we suggest a bet in each of them.
Despite losing to Liverpool on the weekend Manchester City remain firm favourites to win the English Premier League at 3/10. Arsenal who now have a 4 point lead at the top are 6/1 and you can get 20/1 and better the balance.
BRIGHTON v NOTTINGHAM – Click here to bet
Brighton are currently 7th on the table, they made a strong start to the season, but they are in free-fall at the moment having taken just 1 point from the last 9 they have played for. They are coming off back-to-back defeats 2-0 away at Brentford and 1-0 at home to Tottenham. That defeat to Tottenham was their first home defeat of the season.
Brighton’s matches this season have averaged 2.8 goals and 4 of the 9 games have delivered profits for over 2.5 goal backers.
Nottingham are bottom of the League on 5 points from 10 matches. They have had 2 draws and 6 defeats in their last 8 games and most recently went down 1-0 on the road at Wolves. That was their 5th away match of the season and they have only taken 1 point in the 5 games, scoring 1 goal and conceding 14. Nottingham have played 10 matches this season, 40% of which have reached the 3 goal mark.
Brighton should get the win here against a struggling Nottingham team, but with both teams struggling for confidence I think we could be in for a low scoring encounter.
Suggested Bet: Under 2.5 goals at 21/20
CRYSTAL PALACE v WOLVES – Click here to bet
Crystal Palace are 13th on the table and they have only had 1 victory in their last 6 matches. Last time out they played to a goalless draw away at Leicester and their last home game was a 2-1 win over Leeds. Palace have won 2 and drawn 1 of their 5 home matches this season and their 9 matches played to date have been relatively low scoring by English Premier League standards, averaging 2.4 goals each with only 4 of the 9 matches reaching 3 goals.
Wolves are 17th on the log and are coming off a much needed victory at home to Nottingham where they won 1-0. That broke a run of 3 successive losses including away defeats to Chelsea and West Ham. Wolves have only taken 1 point in 5 matches on the road this season and they have only scored 1 goal while conceding 8. Looking at their overall goal scoring record just 30% of Wolves matches have delivered profits for over 2.5 goal backers and their games only averaged 1.6 goals each.
Palace did the double over Wolves last season winning both fixtures 2-0 and I am expecting a similar score line in this meeting, but will settle on Crystal Palace to get the 3 points.
Suggest Bet: Crystal Palace win at 5/4
