Wednesday night is a busy one for English Premier League punters with no fewer than 5 matches taking place and we suggest a bet in each of them.
A reminder that you can click here for the latest English Premier League Outright Betting where Manchester City are trading as 3/10 favourites. There are a number of other long term markets such as betting without Liverpool and Manchester City and here we have Arsenal trading at 8/11.
Bournemouth v Southampton – Click here to bet
Bournemouth are currently 10th on the table and undefeated in their last 6 starts. Last time out they drew 2-2 away at Fulham and their last home game was a 2-1 win over Leicester. They face a Southampton side currently sitting 18th on the log and without a win in their last 5 and last time out they drew 1-1 at home to West Ham breaking a 4 match losing streak. Their last away game was a 4-0 beating at the hands of Manchester City.
Southampton have lost 4 out of 5 matches on the road this season and I think the bookmakers are under-estimating Bournemouth a bit here.
Suggested Bet: Bournemouth win at 7/4
Brentford v Chelsea – Click here to bet
Brentford are currently 9th on the table and broke a 3 match run without a victory when they beat Brighton 2-0 at home on the weekend. They face a Chelsea side that is up to 4th on the table after 4 successive victories including a 2-0 away win over Aston Villa on Sunday.
Over 2.5 goals is trading at 8/10 in this match and while I fancy it I think the better value is backing Chelsea to get their 5th win in a row.
Suggested Bet: Chelsea win at 15/20
Liverpool v West Ham – Click here to bet
Liverpool are up to 8th on the table after an excellent 1-0 home victory over Manchester City on Sunday. The 3 points were much needed as they had only taken 2 points from the previous 9 they had played for.
West Ham are climbing the table and are up to 12th on the log after a slow start. They are undefeated in their last 3 and last time out drew 1-1 at Southampton.
Liverpool matches have averaged 3.7 goals each this season, but West Ham games are sitting at only 2 per match with just 20% of the games delivering profits for over 2.5 goals backers.
Liverpool are 9/20 for the win which is understandable, but I am worried about something of a hangover after the Manchester City win. Given West Ham’s record of low scoring games in the EPL under 2.5 goals is the value here for me.
Suggested Bet: Under 2.5 goals at 31/20
Newcastle v Everton – Click here to bet
Newcastle are currently 6th on the log and undefeated in their last 5 matches. They played out a goalless draw at Manchester United last time out and their last home game was a 5-1 hammering of Brentford.
Everton are 14th on the log and they look to be recovering from a slow start after a 6 match unbeaten run. They have since had back-to-back defeats at home to Manchester United and last time out 2-0 away at Tottenham.
Newcastle have won their last 2 home games against Everton and I was all set to back them at anywhere around the 8/10 mark, but they are a bit shorter than that at 13/20 though and I am going to go for a bigger price of Newcastle to win by exactly 1 goal.
Suggested Bet: Handicap, Newcastle United -1, the draw at 26/10
Manchester United v Tottenham – Click here to bet
Manchester United are currently 5th on the log and are coming off a disappointing goalless draw at home to Newcastle. They have played 4 matches at home this season, winning 2 and drawing 1. They are undefeated in their last 3 home games.
Tottenham currently sit 3rd on the log with just 1 defeat in 10 matches, they have won 4 out of their last 5 games including beating Everton 2-0 at home last time out. Their last away game was a 1-0 win over Brighton and overall on the road this season they have won 2 and drawn 2 of their 5 away games.
Nothing obvious stands out on the goals front and I think the draw is a big runner here.
Suggested Bet: The draw at 26/10
