Premier League Betting Tips: Wins for Brighton and Man United?
The Premier League festive schedule continues thick and fast this evening with six more games from the top-flight, including Brighton v Arsenal, Burnley v Sheffield United and Man United v Wolves.
It’s all set-up to be another night filled with Christmas crackers and we’ve previewed three of the matches, which are all live to watch on Amazon Prime, in our Premier League Betting Tips.
Brighton v Arsenal (18:00)
This match is a bit like a mystery present hiding under the tree. We’re excited to find out what it is, but we have no idea what it could turn out like. Arsenal remain difficult to predict despite their impressive win over Chelsea, while Brighton continue to play well without picking up the points their performances deserve.
The Seagulls are unbeaten in five against the Gunners, and what’s more their only home win in the whole calendar year came against Mikel Arteta’s men in June. They’re 23/10 for a repeat success here, with 4/6 about them on the Double Chance. The Draw is available at 12/5 and Arsenal are priced at 6/5.
Frenchman Neal Maupay has developed a particular fondness for finding the net against the North Londoners, and after breaching them in both fixtures last season, is 23/10 to do so again. It’s an 11/2 shot that he’s the last man to score in the match for the third time in a row. Both Teams to Score, meanwhile, is 8/11.
Burnley v Sheffield United (18:00)
If Brighton v Arsenal promises goals, then Burnley v Sheffield United promises the opposite. It’s not likely to be a classic between two sides who have scored eight goals apiece so far this season, and that should make Under 2.5 Goals an interesting proposition at 8/15. Under 1.5 Goals is priced at 8/5.
Even in spite of that gloomy outlook, Burnley are 7/5 to blunt the rock-bottom Blades, who themselves are 11/5 to pick up their first full haul of points this term. History tells us the last two fixtures between the two sides ended all-square, which means there’s 2/1 on offer for the draw and 5/1 for a third successive 1-1 stalemate.
Man United v Wolves (20:00)
Man United have hit something of a purple patch of late, and that could continue against a Wolves side who are lacking that usual lustre without the presence of Raul Jimenez.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have only won once since losing their talismanic Mexican, and more worryingly find themselves as one of the division’s lowest goalscorers.
The hosts are 3/5 to capitalise on that, with 29/10 about the draw and 19/4 for a Wolves victory. Red-hot Bruno Fernandes is rated the most likely to score at 6/4, ahead of Marcus Rashford at 9/5.
