Burnley v Tottenham, Betting Preview & Prediction

BURNLEY v TOTTENHAM – Click here to bet

Burnley got their first point of the season when they drew 0-0 with West Brom away last time out.  They lost their previous 3 matches including a 1-0 home defeat to Southampton.

They face a Tottenham side which sits 10th on the table and is undefeated in their last 4 matches.  They were disappointing at home last weekend blowing a 3 goal lead to draw 3 all with West Ham.  Prior to that they hammered Manchester United 6-1 on the road and their other away match was a 5-2 demolishing of Southampton.

Burnley held Tottenham to a 1-1 draw in this fixture and the reverse fixture going to Tottenham 5-0.

BETTING

Burnley 9/2

Draw 16/5

Tottenham 6/10

Suggested Bet:  First Goal Scorer, Harry Kane at 13/4

Kane has looked in excellent form this season and in a game where I am struggling to find an obvious bet this will give us a nice interest while we look for an in-running play.

West Ham v Newcastle, Betting Preview & Prediction

WEST HAM v NEWCASTLE UNITED – Click here to bet

West Ham narrowly avoided relegation last season and they did so thanks to a strong finish with 2 draws and 2 wins in their last 4 matches.

Newcastle went on a good run just after the COVID-19 break, but they ended the season with 4 defeats and a draw in their last 5, but still managed to finish 13th.

Newcastle won 3-2 at West Ham last season and there were a total of 9 goals in the two matches between the sides.

Betting

West Ham 23/20

Draw 5/2

Newcastle 49/20

Suggested Bet:  Over 2.5 goals at 19/20

The head-to-head stats suggest that we could have some goal bounce action in this one.

Fulham v Arsenal, Betting Preview & Prediction

FULHAM v ARSENAL – Click here to bet

Fulham were promoted from the Championship last season and they face a stern opening test against Arsenal who finished 8th on the log and will be looking for major improvement.

These sides last met in the 2018/2019 season when Fulham were relegated and Arsenal won 4-1 at home and 5-1 on the road.

Betting

Fulham 19/4

Draw 33/10

Arsenal 11/20

Suggested Bet:  Over 2.5 goals at 7/10

Arsenal were quite strong towards the end of last season and I think we could well get goals at both ends. 

MANCHESTER UNITED v WEST HAM, BETTING PREVIEW & PREDICTION

MANCHESTER UNITED v WEST HAM

Manchester United are coming off a disappointing 3-1 FA Cup semi-final loss to Chelsea, but their League form has been excellent and sitting in 5th place they are very much in the hunt for a Top 4 or even a Top 3 finish.  They have played 7 matches since returning from the COVID-19 break, dropping just 4 points in that time with 5 wins and 2 draws.  Their last home game was a 2-2 draw to Southampton, prior to that they beat Bournemouth by 3 and Sheffield United by 3 goals.

West Ham are coming off back-to-back victories over Norwich away and Watford at home and that has ensured their EPL survival.  They have won 4 out of 18 away matches this season.

Looking at the head-to-head clashes between the sides West Ham beat United 2-0 at home earlier in the season, but last time the sides met at Old Trafford it was United who came out victors 2-1.

Manchester United 1/4

Draw 11/2

West Ham 10/1

Suggested Bet:  Handicap, Manchester United (-2) at 31/20

For this bet to arrive I need Manchester United to win by 3 goals or more and while it might seem a big order they have won 2 of their last 3 home games by those margins and they face a West Ham side that will consider its job to be done and may well step off the gas.

WATFORD v MANCHESTER CITY, BETTING PREVIEW & PREDICTION

WATFORD v MANCHESTER CITY

Watford are a club in disarray and they recently got rid of yet another manager with just 2 games left in the season.  They currently sit on 34 points just outside the relegation zone, 3 points ahead of Aston Villa and Bournemouth and for the moment at least they have a better goal difference.

A quick look at the long term markets shows Watford are 23/10 to get relegated and with games against Manchester City and Arsenal still to come, that price could have some takers.  Click here for long term English Premier Markets, including next year’s winner.

Watford’s home form has given them hope this season and in 18 games they have won 6, lost 6 and drawn 6, also winning their last 2 against Newcastle and Norwich both by 2 goals to 1.

Manchester City have reeled off 3 successive victories to consolidate 2nd place and their last away game was a 5-0 thrashing of Brighton.  Interestingly enough their last match was at home against Bournemouth where they battled to win 2-1 against the relegation candidates.

Manchester City destroyed Watford 8-0 at home earlier in the season.  They also beat them 6-0 in the FA Cup and last season edged this fixture 2-1.

Watford 31/4

Draw 19/4

Manchester City 7/20

Suggested Bet:  Handicap, Manchester City (-1) at 8/10

Whether you are looking at current form or head-to-head clashes between these sides it is impossible to make a case for Watford and City to win by more than a goal looks the call.
