Premier League Betting Tips: Cherries and Hornets set for goals?
From Brighton’s crucial trip to Wolves, to West Ham’s seventh-place battle with Leicester City and a potential goal-fest on the South Coast, it’s a busy Saturday afternoon in the Premier League.
There’s also the small matter of a rematch between Manchester City and Spurs, a fixture we’ve previewed here. For the rest of the day’s matches, get stuck right in with our Premier League Tips.
AFC Bournemouth v Fulham
Fulham picked up their first win since January last weekend. We’d be surprised if they followed that up with another on the South Coast. Put simply, the Cottagers have the worst away record in the Premier League.
Even Huddersfield have taken more points on the road. That makes a Bournemouth side who won 5-0 last weekend an interesting proposition at 4/6, while it’s 13/5 about a Cherries Win and Over 3.5 Goals.
Callum Wilson offers the main goal threat and is 4/1 to Score 2 or More.
Huddersfield Town v Watford
The only sides Huddersfield have beaten this season are Wolves and Fulham. That doesn’t bode well for the visit of Watford. The Hornets are free-scoring, especially away from home, and are 5/6 to win outright.
Troy Deeney’s absence should allow Gerard Deulofeu back in. He’s been deadly when given the chance, with six goals in his last eight matches. We go 9/5 about him Anytime, while it’s 9/4 for Watford to Win to Nil.
West Ham v Leicester City
Is there anything more exciting than the battle for seventh? Probably. But this one still looks like an Easter cracker at the London Stadium. The sides are in contrasting form but fairly matched in terms of quality.
That could lend itself to a third draw in four meetings between the teams at 5/2. Jamie Vardy is the obvious goalscorer pick at Evens, although the impressive Youri Tielemans is in decent nick and is a 7/2 chance.
Two exciting attacking outfits could also reward Both Teams to Score backers at 4/7.
Wolves v Brighton & Hove Albion
It’s difficult to assess this one. On paper you’d say Wolves should win at 3/4, but there’s a sense the Old Gold might not yet be over their FA Cup heartbreak. Could that let in Brighton at 17/4, or the Draw at 23/10?
All we know is these two don’t tend to produce goals. Each of the last eight meetings have seen Under 2.5 Goals (4/7), while the last five have all returned Both Teams to Score – No at 4/6.
Newcastle v Southampton
Southampton’s good recent run has probably secured their safety. And it’s a good job too. The Saints have only won once up at Newcastle since Matt Le Tissier struck in a 1-0 success all the way back in 1997.
The Magpies are 7/5 for all three points here, with Ayoze Perez a 5/2 chance to follow up his goal at Leicester with his ninth of the season. Nathan Redmond netted twice last weekend is 7/2 to bag once again.
