EPL Tips and Odds: Home Sides to Triumph in High Scoring Games

There are some very nice looking matches in the Premier League, none more so than Sunday’s all-London clash at Stamford Bridge between Chelsea and Arsenal. With league leaders Man United hosting an ambitious but so-far underwhelming Everton side on the same day and Spurs welcoming Swansea to Wembley on Saturday evening there’s plenty to get stuck into.

Here we bring you the latest live betting odds comparison for these matches, and indeed the rest of the top flight games. And we’ve got predictions and betting tips to help you make some cash from your weekend football betting.

Tottenham v Swansea – Spurs to Storm to First Home Win

Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham side have had a mixed season so far. An impressive 3-0 victory at Everton last time out followed a disappointing 1-1 with Burnley at ‘home’ – i.e. Wembley. Spurs haven’t found their feet at the national stadium and went down 2-1 to Chelsea in their first match there this term. With a tough Champions League game at Wembley on Wednesday against Borussia Dortmund, could Swansea be in a position to take advantage of tired legs this weekend?

The bookies think not, with Paul Clement’s side priced at massive betting odds of 14/1 with BetVictor to pull off a shock win. Had the Swans mustered more than a single league win this season – against lowly Crystal Palace – we might have been tempted by that price. But home defeats to Man United and (more worryingly) Newcastle and a 0-0 draw on the road at Southampton don’t give us a lot of confidence.

Instead we think it will be Spurs celebrating at the final whistle. And though it will be tough to follow up their midweek game we think the north Londoners have enough quality to get the job done on Saturday. Our betting tip is to back Tottenham to win by a one goal margin at 3/1 with Boylesports.

Chelsea v Arsenal – Blues to Disarm Gunners

Champions Chelsea host Arsenal on Sunday in what is one of the biggest games of the campaign thus far. The Gunners had some joy against the Blues last term, beating them 3-0 at the Emirates in the league and getting the better of them in the FA Cup final too. But with just one league win in 12 against Chelsea, it is no surprise to see Arsene Wenger’s men priced as the 10/3 outsiders with Bet365 to take the three points.

Since Chelsea’s shocking opening day defeat to Burnley at Stamford Bridge, Antonio Conte’s men have found their feet, winning their next three, including away to Spurs. We think they have the beating of Arsenal but that the visitors won’t go down without a fight. We certainly predict goals aplenty in this one, and backing over 2.5 goals looks outstanding value at betting odds of 5/4 with Betfair.

Arsenal’s last away day was their humiliating 4-0 drubbing at Liverpool, and we can’t see Wenger allowing anything similar here. His side are not equipped to park the bus, however, and though we can’t see the Gunners getting even a draw, we certainly think they will cause the Chelsea backline problems.

Our main betting tip for this one combines a home win with our predicted goalfest: back Chelsea to win with over 3.5 goals in the game at tasty odds of 7/2 with Boylesports.

Man United v Everton – Mourinho’s Men to Return to Winning Ways

Table toppers Manchester United let their 100% league record go last weekend as they were held to 2-2 draw at Stoke. Prior to that Jose Mourinho’s men hadn’t even conceded a goal, with 4-0 victories over both West Ham and Swansea, and a 2-0 triumph at home against Leicester. Mourinho will certainly want to get back to winning ways this weekend, and the bookies are confident he’ll guide his team to the three points with BetVictor making them the 4/11 favourites.

Everton will certainly be bang up for this one though, and none more so than former Man United captain, Wayne Rooney. England’s all-time top scorer has found a new lease of life at his boyhood club Everton and he will be determined to make an impression at his old stomping ground.

With the Toffees facing a potentially energy-sapping trip to face Atalanta in Italy on Thursday, we think the Red Devils will have too much for Ronald Koeman’s men. Though the visitors may prove stubborn opposition, the greater preparation time – and indeed quality – is likely to count. We’re backing Man United to win to nil at 11/10 with Ladbrokes, and we wouldn’t be surprised if the man scoring against his old club is Romelu Lukaku rather than Rooney!
