Premier League Odds - Dec. 2016 Midweek Round Betting Tips

After another memorable weekend of Premier League football, thankfully we don’t have to wait too long for the next batch of fixtures, as all-20 top-flight clubs are in midweek action.

As usual, we’ve got betting tips, odds, analysis, predictions and live odds comparison on the biggest matches from this week’s Premier League fixture list, which includes Chelsea’s visit to Sunderland and Manchester City’s home game with Watford.

At the weekend, Antonio Conte’s Chelsea maintained their lead at the top of the Premier League table with a narrow 1-0 win over Tony Pulis’s West Bromwich Albion at Stamford Bridge.

Meanwhile, also in the higher regions of the table, Arsenal beat Stoke City, whereas Manchester City lost at Leicester City and Liverpool could only manage a 2-2 draw with West Ham United.

At the other end of the table, Swansea City beat Sunderland in the clash at the bottom, a result that saw the Swans leapfrog the Black Cats in the table. Crystal Palace and Hull City played out a thrilling 3-3 draw at the KCOM Stadium, whilst Burnley managed a solid 3-2 win over Bournemouth at Turf Moor.

Sunderland v Chelsea

On Wednesday, leaders Chelsea make the long trip to the Stadium of Light to take on the Premier League’s bottom club, Sunderland. As you would expect, Antonio Conte’s Blues are the overwhelming favourites to pick up the maximum points.

However, after losing 3-0 at fellow strugglers Swansea City on Saturday, David Moyes’ Black Cats are in desperate need of a victory. Looking at our live odds comparison, the best betting odds you can get on a home win are 9/1 with BetVictor, with the draw available at 24/5 (Betfair). Meanwhile, you can get an away win at just 4/11 with William Hill.

Unfortunately for Sunderland, we can see Chelsea easing to a victory on Wednesday, and we like the look of Coral’s 11/5 for Conte’s men to win -2. If the Blues do indeed win in Wearside, it would be their tenth Premier League victory in a row.

Crystal Palace v Manchester United

After only managing a 3-3 draw with lowly Hull City on Saturday, Alan Pardew’s Crystal Palace could do with all three points when they welcome Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United to Selhurst Park on Wednesday. As for United, they head to south London fresh off the back of a much-needed 1-0 triumph over Tottenham Hotspur.

The Red Devils go into Wednesday’s contest in the capital as the 8/11 favourites with William Hill. The best odds you can get on an Eagles victory are 17/4 with BetVictor, which really is a tempting price, especially as Pardew’s men are at home.

Nevertheless, we’re predicting this one to end all square at Selhurst Park. United have drawn three of their last four Premier League matches, while Palace’s 3-3 draw with Hull was only their third league draw of the season. The best betting odds you can get on this one to end level are 3/1 with Betfred, and we feel that’s a price well worth having a few quid on.

Manchester City v Watford

Also on Wednesday, Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City entertain Walter Mazzarri’s Watford in what has turned out to be a must-win game for the Citizens. After falling to a second successive league defeat when they were beaten 4-2 at the King Power Stadium on Saturday evening, City have now dropped a whopping seven points behind Chelsea.

As for Watford, despite losing two of their last three, the Hornets’ impressive 3-2 win over Everton put them into seventh position in the Premier League table. Mazzarri’s side may head to the Etihad as the huge underdogs, but they will certainly be buoyed by Saturday’s sensational comeback victory over the Toffees.

If you fancy Watford to follow up that win with another one on Wednesday, the best odds you can get are 11/1 with Unibet. The draw is available at 11/2 (Betway), whereas you can get the home triumph at the short odds of 5/18 at Sporting Bet.

However, we can see City getting back to winning ways in comfortable fashion in the week, with our betting tip being Pep’s troops to win -1, which is decently priced at odds 8/11 with Coral.

West Bromwich Albion v Swansea City

Last up we’re going to focus on the crucial clash at the Hawthorns, as Tony Pulis’s West Bromwich Albion welcome Bob Bradley’s Swansea City. Despite still occupying a place in the Premier League’s relegation zone, the Swans have won two of their last three, which has made things a little rosier in the Liberty Stadium garden.

However, both of those victories have come at home against teams who are also fighting for their Premier League lives. After beating Crystal Palace in one of the more bizarre games of the season, they then fell to a poor 5-0 defeat at White Hart Lane. Still, Swansea put in arguably their best performance yet when they eased past Sunderland at the Liberty on Saturday.

As for the Baggies, despite narrowly losing to high-flyers Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, they go into this one in fine form. Albion have won three of their last five, a fine run of results that has seen them shoot up into the top half of the Premier League table.

Even though West Brom are in form, the favourites and on their own patch, Wednesday’s match in the West Midlands is a difficult one to call. The bookies have the home team priced at betting odds of evens (Bet365), with the draw available at 13/5 with William Hill. However, were going against the bookies in this one, as BetVictor’s 31/10 for a Swans win is just too good to turn down.
