There are 4 English Premier League matches taking place on Tuesday and we take a look at each of them from a betting angle.
Just a reminder that the Outright Winner Market gets updated throughout the season. We have Manchester still trading as 15/20 favourites at the time of writing, but Arsenal have closed right in and are currently 5/4 second favourites. You can get 28/1 and better the balance.
Arsenal v Newcastle – Click here to bet
Arsenal are currently top of the table, 7 points clear of Manchester City and 12 points clear of 3rd place, Newcastle who have played a game more.
The Gunners have been in excellent form and have won their last 5 matches in a row including beating Brighton 4-2 on the road last time out. Their last home game was 3-1 win over West Ham on Boxing Day.
Newcastle were disappointed to drop points at home to Leeds on the weekend with the game finishing goalless. That broke a run of 6 successive victories for Newcastle.
Newcastle are now undefeated in 12 EPL games and Arsenal undefeated in their last 10. This has the potential to be a cagey affair, but I don’t think it will be and I think we are going to see plenty of action. Arsenal will certainly have their supporters at 5/6 to win the game, but I am betting that we get 3 goals or more at odds of 15/20.
Suggested Bet: Over 2.5 goals at 15/20
Everton v Brighton – Click here to bet
Everton are currently 16th on the log and have only taken 2 points from the last 15 they have played for. One of those points was a surprise and that was last time out against Manchester City where they managed to hold the Champions to a 1-1 draw.
Brighton currently sit 9th on the table and are coming off a 4-2 home defeat by Arsenal. The previous game on the road was on Boxing Day where they beat Southampton 3-1.
Goals have flowed in Brighton matches of late and their last 6 matches have all seen over 2.5 goal backers as well both teams to score, yes, backers collect profits. Everton games have been much lower scoring and that is the reason we are getting even money on over 2.5 goals and I am happy to take that.
Suggested Bet: Over 2.5 goals at 1/1

Leicester v Fulham – Click here to bet
Leicester are currently 13th on the log, but they have lost both their matches since returning from the World Cup break, going down 3-0 at home to Newcastle and 2-1 away at Liverpool. Prior to that they had won 4 out of 5 matches which had them climbing up the table.
Fulham are currently 7th on the log and have won both games since returning to action, beating Southampton 2-1 at home and Crystal Palace 3-0 on the road.
Leicester are favourites for this game at 5/4, but I do think that Fulham will give them a hard run and I think the value here is actually with the draw as I don’t see much between these sides.
Suggested Bet: The draw at 26/10
Manchester United v Bournemouth – Click here to bet
Manchester United are up to 4th on the table having won 3 successive matches and both matches since returning from the break, they beat Nottingham 3-0 at home and Wolves 1-0 on the road.
Bournemouth, currently 15th and on a run of form that has seen them win only 1 of their last 8 matches and they have lost 6 of their last 7. They were beaten 2-0 by Crystal Palace at home last time out and 2-0 on the road at Chelsea in their return to action last week.
Manchester United have a good recent record against Bournemouth at home winning 5-2 and 4-1 in the last two years and I am going to take a gamble that they win this game by 3 goals or more.
Suggested Bet: Handicap, Manchester United -2.5 goals at 18/10
