Premier League Betting Odds Comparison: Arsenal v Liverpool and More!

We’ve got more Premier League football to look forward to before Christmas, with another full round of games pencilled in before Christmas Eve. There was some debate about possibly playing games on the 24th, but after those plans were scrapped we’ve been left with four lives games within 24 hours, so there’s plenty of Premier League action to keep an eye on this weekend. With so many games to keep an eye on, you should take a look at our latest betting tips and odds comparison for this weekend’s key clashes.

Arsenal v Liverpool: Expect Goals at the Emirates

The headline game of the bunch has been switched to Friday night, as Liverpool head south to take on Arsenal. This is a big clash in the race for the Champions League spots, and the Gunners are hoping to boost their top four credentials with a big home win. However, Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool are strong in these big games, and they should show that at the Emirates. The visitors haven’t lost any of their last five meetings with the Gunners, winning the last three.

Recent meetings between the pair have been high scoring, and we predict this one will go that way too. Liverpool have won four straight away matches – all of which have been by a three goal margin or higher. The Reds have hit 16 goals across those four trips, while Klopp’s side have seen over 3.5 goals land in 78% of their away trips this season. As such we think over 3.5 goals is the best bet for this one, and it can be backed at best betting odds of 23/27 with Unibet on our live odds comparison.

Everton v Chelsea: Can Everton Shock Champions Chelsea?

A trip to Everton wouldn’t have been seen as a difficult encounter last month, but Sam Allardyce has quickly turned things around for the Toffees. He’s got them in great form, but despite that Chelsea are heavy favourites according to our odds comparison. The champions have been in good form on the road, but their 1-0 defeat at West Ham recently showed their inconsistency. They’re far from the dominant side of last season, and they only just managed a victory over Southampton at the weekend.

With Chelsea not exactly impressing of late, you’d think that Everton would at least be seen as contenders in this game by the bookmakers. However, they’re still 5/1 with Betfair to take three points at Goodison this weekend. While Antonio Conte has a strong record against the Toffees, that was against Ronald Koeman and David Unsworth. This time around they’re facing Allardyce, who led Palace to a win at Stamford Bridge earlier this year. With that in mind, the fact that Everton are 13/10 with Bet365 on the double chance market seems like brilliant value as far as we’re concerned.

Brighton v Watford: Watford Crisis Likely to Continue

While Marco Silva’s Watford started the season in great form, that’s typical of the side from Vicarage Road. They tend to suffer a small mid-season collapse, and that appears to be kicking in now. The Hornets have lost four of their last five games, including all of their last three. After a heavy 4-1 defeat to Huddersfield on Saturday, we think Silva’s side are going to struggle in their trip to Brighton this week.

The Seagulls know they need to start producing victories, and we expect them to take full advantage of a Watford side who have lost four of their last five away league games, leaving the Hornets at risk of dropping into the bottom half. Brighton can be backed at 6/4 with Ladbrokes on our odds comparison, and that seems like great value for another Watford defeat.

Burnley v Tottenham: European Six-Pointer at Turf Moor

Burnley continue their great season with a clash against Tottenham, having taken a point from them at Wembley earlier in the campaign. That was just one of their big results against the top sides this term, and it has left them in contention for a place in Europe next term. In fact, they come into Saturday evening’s clash ahead of Spurs in the table, just two points shy of the Champions League spots. Will they boost that position with another win this week?

Their hopes of getting a result are pretty good, as Tottenham don’t tend to get results against top half teams. They’ve lost all of their away trips to the sides above them so far, while their only away win against a top 10 side was at Everton, who lost plenty of matches under Ronald Koeman and were struggling at the time. Spurs won just one of their nine trips to top 10 sides last season, so Burnley double chance is great value here at 13/8 with Betfair.

Leicester City v Manchester Utd: United Great Value to Stop Foxes

Manchester United’s trip to Leicester rounds the Premier League action off until Boxing Day, as they play in the late Saturday match. These 7:45pm Saturday games will become a regular feature in the league from 2019, but right now it’s rare to finish up a packed day of action with a late game. It should be an entertaining clash too, Untied have seen over 2.5 goals scored in 67% of their away trips this term. Having won three away games on the spin, we expect them to claim all three points against the Foxes.

Leicester are coming off the back of a 3-0 loss to Crystal Palace, while they’ve lost to all but one of the top six sides they’ve faced so far. We’re predicting that United will be the fifth top side to claim three points against them so far, since the Red Devils have won the last four meetings between them. We’re going for a United win, which can be backed at best betting odds of 4/5 with Coral.
