Premier League Betting Tips and Odds including Spurs to Test United


Manchester United were the big story last weekend, after losing 2-1 to Huddersfield. They are getting top billing this time around, as they host Tottenham in the weekend’s opening game. Having lost out in the title race, they’re going to need to improve ahead of this crunch encounter. Ahead of that match and the rest of this weekend’s Premier League action, we’ve picked out a few betting tips for you to take a look at.

Manchester Utd v TottenhamIn-form Spurs Visit Old Trafford

Having been accused of parking the bus against Liverpool and Benfica, it will be interesting to see how Jose Mourinho approaches this clash with Tottenham. They’re facing a Spurs side who are in brilliant form, with Harry Kane leaving defences bruised across the Premier League and beyond. Having troubled the European champions in Madrid, Spurs are showing they’re capable of impressing on the biggest stage.

Spurs hit four past Liverpool last weekend, and they have been even more impressive on the road this term. Their good form away from home probably comes out of necessity, after a tough start at Wembley. However, they look like a real threat here, and we can see Spurs causing plenty of problems at Old Trafford on Saturday.

We fully expect Spurs to score here, while United have struggled when it comes to getting back into games where they have gone behind. That was clear against Huddersfield, and they just lack that creative spark to open up a side who are protecting a lead. We think Spurs can build on their good form and strike an early blow to United, which could be enough to end this clash. We’re backing Tottenham Draw No Bet at 11/8 with Betfred, while we’re predicting a 1-0 away win at 10/1 with Betfair in the correct score market.

Bournemouth v ChelseaCould Chelsea Suffer Another Shock?

Chelsea had an impressive fightback victory against Watford last weekend, but will the build on that against Bournemouth? The Blues were disappointing in their last game at Stamford Bridge, and their recent poor displays should give Bournemouth a chance in this clash. However, after losing away to bottom side Crystal Palace, the champions don’t want to lose out at the second bottom side too.

Conceding two at Crystal Palace has to raise alarm bells for Conte, while he’s said that their increased fixture list means they aren’t training as much. That leaves him with less time to fix the problems that the Blues are facing, which should play in to Bournemouth’s hands. We can see both teams scoring in this clash on Saturday, and we’re backing over BTTS in this game at 3/4 with Bet365.

Brighton v SouthamptonSeagulls Hoping for Saints slip

Brighton claimed an impressive win at West Ham last Friday, and their clash with Southampton this weekend does seem like a winnable fixture for the Seagulls. However, Saints are having a sluggish start to the season, and they’ll be hoping to take advantage of a promoted side in order to improve their fortunes. Having beaten West Brom 1-0 on Saturday, the Saints could really use another victory, although it isn’t likely to be pretty.

While the hosts were able to put three past a hopeless West Ham, they are likely to find things a little more difficult here. Saints were another team who hit three past the Hammers, but aside from that they’ve been low scoring for much of the season. We’re backing under 2.5 goals in this game at 3/5 with BetVictor, while we’re tempted by under 1.5. We can see either side parking the bus at 1-0, while a 0-0 isn’t out of the question. That has us backing under 1.5 goals in this game at best betting odds 24/13 with Unibet.

Leicester City v EvertonManagerless duo Clash at King Power

Both Everton and Leicester were expected to be top eight sides this season, thanks to a busy summer in the transfer market. A few months on and they’re sat around the relegation zone, with both searching for a new manager and both with caretakers in charge. They’ve largely struggled due to their defensive problems, and both sides must be concerned that those will occur again when they clash at the King Power on Sunday.

The bookmakers clearly don’t share that fear, as they’ve left the odds on goals at quite decent prices ahead of Sunday’s big game. The Toffees may have shipped five against Arsenal in a seven goal thriller, but over 2.5 here is priced at 11/10 with Betfair. If you’re feeling an end to end encounter is on the cards, then you might want to consider over 3.5 goals at 5/2 with Ladbrokes.

However, we’re sticking with both teams to score in this game, with neither side doing that well in terms of clean sheets. We think BTTS looks overpriced at 4/5 with Bet365 ahead of this game, having landed in five of Everton’s last six matches. The pair shared nine goals in two meetings last term, and we’re backing more goals on Sunday.
