Ladbrokes News Acca: Brighton, Watford and Burnley tipped up
While the Football League doubles up for Easter on Friday and Monday, the Premier League keeps on rolling this Saturday.
There are just seven game-weeks of the season remaining, so the matches really count at this stage.
Liverpool and both Manchester clubs are in action on Saturday, but it’s the huge clashes in the bottom half where we’re focusing our attention.
Here are our Premier League tips this weekend…
Brighton to beat Leicester – 9/5
Only three teams have managed to win at Brighton & Hove Albion this season – Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City.
So Chris Hughton’s Seagulls should be confident of defeating a Leicester City side who rarely travel well.
The Foxes have only won one of their last six on the road, and that was at the seemingly already-doomed West Bromwich Albion.
Watford to beat Bournemouth – 13/10
Javi Gracia’s Hornets are unbeaten in five at Vicarage Road, winning four and drawing once. The Hertfordshire outfit are unbeaten against Bournemouth in their last five fixtures, too.
Eddie Howe’s Cherries are a difficult team to pin down. They’re too inconsistent to back.
Watford will allow the Cherries to have the ball and hit on the counter. Troy Deeney should lap up any defensive mistakes.
Southampton to beat West Ham – 31/20
Two struggling sides meet in a relegation six-pointer at the London Stadium.
West Ham have lost their last three amid considerable fan disgruntlement while Southampton have brought in Mark Hughes after just one league win since the end of November.
The Saints won last time out in the FA Cup and the impetus of a new manager could be a telling factor here.
Burnley to beat West Bromwich Albion – 19/10
West Brom’s fate is almost sealed.
The Baggies are winless in eight matches in all competitions and have only won once at the Hawthorns since the opening day of the season.
Burnley, on the other hand, have picked up six points from six in March and are back on track after a 12-match barren run without victory.
The Clarets get the nod from us.
So there we go. This Saturday’s selections are Brighton/Watford/Southampton and Burnley all to win!
