TheODDSbible's Premier League Betting Preview
Bournemouth v Tottenham
Bournemouth are in great form and have scored in every one of their home games this season. Tottenham have conceded in 3/4 away games against opponents including Middlesbrough and West Brom, so Bournemouth will fancy their chances to get at least a point from this fixture.
After netting 6 past Hull last weekend, Bournemouth will have a lot of motivation coming into this game. Tottenham are still pushing at the top of the table and will want to continue their good form.
Suggested bet: Both teams to score 7/10
Arsenal v Middlesbrough
2nd v 17th, and Arsenal will be extremely pleased with how they have been performing in recent weeks. Ozil seems to be regaining form and players like Theo Walcott are starting to properly shine. They face a Middlesbrough side who only have 6 points, with only one win to their name this season.
The suggested bet could be changed to over 2.5 Arsenal goals however the suggested bet covers if they win 2-1 for example. Arsenal should walk away victorious easily.
Suggested bet: Arsenal to win and over 2.5 match goals 7/10
Burnley v Everton
Both of these teams haven't had a great run of form, with Burnley losing their last 3/4 and Everton haven't won in their last 3. Burnley seem to do well against stronger opposition, beating Liverpool at home, and only losing 1-0 to Arsenal.
5/5 Burnley's home games have seen under 2.5 match goals, and with both teams not being in great form - there is a strong possibility this trend will carry on. A likely result would be 1-1 or something similar.
Suggested bet: under 2.5 match goals 7/10
Hull v Stoke
These teams are in a very similar position, with Hull on 7 points and Stoke on 6. However last weekend proved to contain complete opposite results. Hull were smashed 6-1 by Bournemouth, compared to Stoke who got their first win of the season with a 2-0 win against Sunderland.
Hull have conceded 17 in their last 4 EPL games, and with Stoke looking like they may be picking up some form - The Potters could see this as points they need if they wish to stay up.
Suggested bet: Stoke to win either half 8/11
Leicester v Crystal Palace
This game could be extremely close, with Leicester having a good home form and Palace having strong away form. Leicester will come into this game motivated by their win in the Champions League and will be looking to build on this against a Palace side who they beat 1-0 in both fixtures last season.
Palace lost last weekend at home to a struggling West Ham side, so this could be a tough fixture for them. Leicester will want to improve on their start to the season and could get another 1-0 win.
Suggested bet: Leicester draw no bet 1/2
Swansea v Watford
Swansea started their campaign with a win, however they've only managed one other point in the rest of their fixtures. They sit in 19th and have lost their last 4 EPL games. Watford on the other hand are sitting comfortably in 10th and have only lost 1 of their last 5.
Last season, the two fixtures between these sides ended 1-0. With whoever was at home winning by a slim margin. Looking at recent form, Watford will be confident coming into this fixture and will want to continue their good form. Swansea on the other hand simply want to get some points on the board. With a new manager calling the shots, they played extremely well against Arsenal last weekend. A 1-1 draw could be quite likely.
Suggested bet: Both teams to score 7/10
West Ham v Sunderland
West Ham finally managed to get another 3 points on the board last weekend with a 1-0 win away at Crystal Palace. A win against a struggling Sunderland side could put them mid-table as long as other results go their way.
Sunderland are sitting on 2 points at the bottom of the EPL and will be feeling the pressure. This pressure could either make them perform exceptionally, or it could get the better of them and lead to even worse results. West Ham are the stronger side and with another win finally under their belt, I think the Hammers can grab another 3 points.
Suggested bet: West Ham win 4/7
Liverpool v West Brom
Liverpool's only loss of the season still comes from that shock result against Burnley, and were held to a 0-0 draw against Man United last weekend after Jose Mourinho parked the bus for the whole game. The Reds will see this game as points they need if they wish to challenge for the title this season.
West Brom are draw specialists at the moment, with their last 3 results ending 1-1. Last season the two games between these sides both ended as draws, however by looking at recent form - you can't help but think Liverpool should walk away victorious. The odds for this game are strongly suggesting a Liverpool win, however the Reds have only kept 1 clean sheet this season.
Suggested bet: Both teams to score 1/1
Man City v Southampton
Both of these teams have had great starts to the season, with Man City 1st and Southampton 8th. The last 2 games are where Man City have dropped points, losing to Tottenham and then only coming away with a draw against Everton. Southampton have won their last 3/4 EPL fixtures and with Charlie Austin in form, will hope to net at least one past City.
Last season, the two fixtures finished with both teams winning one each. However looking at recent form, this should be a great game with hopefully a few goals.
Suggested bet: Both teams to score 8/10
Chelsea v Man Utd
This fixture could be a repeat of Manchester United's strategy against Liverpool last weekend, with Mourinho settling for a point and parking the bus. Both teams have lost just 2 games so far and just 2 points separates these teams.
The last four meetings between these teams had under 2.5 match goals and you can't help but think this will be another low scoring fixture. Chelsea have scored 2 or more goals in 6/8 of their EPL fixtures so far and Mourinho will be trying to avoid this at all costs.
Suggested bet: Under 2.5 match goals 8/11
