Premier League Betting Odds: Can Man City Claim a Fifteenth Victory?

Premier League Betting Odds: Can Man City Claim a Fifteenth Victory?

Fresh from their huge victory in the Manchester derby, Manchester City have a close to perfect record after 16 games. Their winning record is being tested once again on Wednesday night. The Premier League has another full round of matches this week, kicking off on Tuesday night. Ahead of this week’s biggest top flight matches, we have the latest betting tips, predictions and odds comparison for you to take a look at.

Burnley v Stoke City: Stoke’s Dismal Form set to Continue

Stoke were hit for five in their trip to Wembley at the weekend, so the last thing they’ll want is to head to another high flying side. The Potters are slipping dangerously close to the drop zone, and Mark Hughes has seen his side completely fall apart at the back. That’s not the kind of form you’d want to take into a trip to Burnley – who are on the verge of the European spots after a brilliant start to the season. Can the Clarets add to their string of great results by claiming all three points when Stoke land at Turf Moor on Tuesday? On current form, you’d expect the Clarets to be heavy favourites.

Burnley are looking solid in defence, they’re stringing moves together up front and they’re impressing both home and away. Sean Dyche has got his side in great form, and we think they are far too big for the points, with our odds comparison pricing them at 5/4 with Ladbrokes. However, we also like the look of a home win to nil at 13/5 with BetVictor, as the Clarets have been solid at the back all season, and tend to see low scoring matches at Turf Moor.

Crystal Palace v Watford: Crystal Palace out to Maintain Home Run

Crystal Palace may have been denied a win at home to Bournemouth on Saturday, but another two goal haul was a step forward for the Eagles. They are struggling to score goals on the road, but Roy Hodgson’s men have now scored twice in their last five home matches. That form is almost as impressive as Watford’s, with the Hornets scoring at least twice in eight of their last nine Premier League away trips. Marco Silva is really improving this Watford outfit, and they’re likely to be a threat going forwards against Palace once again.

The hosts have yet to keep a home clean sheet this term, which has us expecting a high scoring encounter between this pair. With both teams scoring in three of the four encounters between them since the start of last year, we should get goals from both, especially as neither are all that gifted in defence this season. Palace have been blown apart at the back is almost every game, while Watford have shipped 1.69 goals per game this term.

As a result, we think both teams to score is massively overpriced at 4/5 with Betfair in this game. We’re also tempted by a 2-2 draw, found at 13/1 with BetVictor on our odds comparison. That’s a big price for a score which has landed in all but one of Palace’s last four home matches.

Huddersfield v Chelsea: Can the Blues Bounce Back?

Chelsea’s defeat at West Ham on Saturday was the second time this season that they’ve lost to the league’s bottom side. That poor result put another dent in their title chances – which are vitally non-existent now. Antonio Conte has work to do in his attempt to inspire a push for the top four from his charges, and now he takes his team to an impressive Huddersfield side on Tuesday night.

The Terriers have won half of their home games so far, drawing two and losing to Tottenham and Manchester City. They have troubled both of the Manchester clubs this term, almost taking a point off City and securing three against United. They’ve been scoring pretty regularly at their own ground, so we’re backing them to panic the champions this week. We’re going for both teams to score in this clash, which can be found at 5/4 with Betfred according to our odds comparison.

Swansea v Man City: City Aiming for win in Wales

Man City’s fourteen game winning run is the longest in any Premier League season, but a fifteenth victory on Wednesday would make it the longest run by any top flight side. The Citizens are now 11 points clear of the chasing pack, and who knows what kind of advantage they’ll have after the busy festive fixture list draws to an end. While they are showing some signs of fatigue, City are still impressing overall.

The only concern for the leaders is the absence of John Stones. Without him they’ve conceded in four straight league games, and that could leave them open on Wednesday. The Swans seem to have finally found their feet in front of goal, scoring in their last two games. While they have a patchy scoring record of late, they’ve seen both teams score in eight consecutive meetings with City, so we’re backing an away win and BTTS at 9/5 with Coral in this one.

West Ham v Arsenal: Can Moyes Claim Another Scalp?

West Ham claimed a huge win over Chelsea at the weekend, but can they trouble Arsenal and follow that up with another result? The Hammers haven’t learnt too much from that win over the Blues, as their players tend to pull out results in these big games to keep the fans off their back. While they have bigger, more important games to come, a result here would still be welcome for the strugglers. Given they’re facing an Arsenal side who have drawn two and lost four of eight away league games this term, the Hammers look like value to avoid defeat at 7/5 with 888Sport according to our odds comparison.
