Premier League Odds December 2016 including Manchester City v Chelsea

After securing another win at the weekend, Antonio Conte’s Chelsea remain at the summit of the Premier League. Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal all kept up with the Blues’ pace with victories of their own, however.

At the other end of the spectrum, Swansea City lifted themselves off the bottom with a thrilling 5-4 win over fellow strugglers Crystal Palace. The Swans’ victory, coupled with Sunderland’s 2-0 loss at Anfield, meant that David Moyes’ men replaced the Welsh side at the foot.

We’re here to give you our betting tips, analysis, predictions and live odds comparison for this weekend’s top Premier League fixtures.

Manchester City v Chelsea

Where else to start other than Saturday’s huge clash at the Etihad Stadium between Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City and Antonio Conte’s Chelsea? The Blues may head to Manchester having won their last seven games on the bounce, but they will also arrive as the underdogs.

City go into this blockbuster contest in good shape, as well. Since returning from the international break, the Citizens have won back-to-back away league games by the same 2-1 scorline against Crystal Palace and Burnley respectively.

Looking at our live odds comparison, Man City are currently priced at 23/20 (BetVictor) for the win, whilst you can get the draw at decent odds of 13/5 with William Hill.

However, we fancy Chelsea to continue their stunning record by making eight league wins in a row with an away triumph at the Etihad. The best odds you can get on a Blues win are 13/5 at Betway, and that’s the outcome we’re predicting from this huge top-of-the-table clash.

West Ham United v Arsenal

Saturday’s evening kick off comes from the London Stadium, as Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal make their first trip to West Ham United’s new stadium. The Hammers, who have struggled to adapt to their new surroundings, will be desperate to avoid defeat in this one.

West Ham have failed to kick on from what was an exceptional season last term, as Slaven Bilic’s men sit in a lowly 16th position. As for Arsenal, the north London outfit have not tasted defeat since the opening weekend of the Premier League season and, despite being on the road, they head to east London as the clear favourites.

The best betting odds you can get on an away win are 3/4 at Sky Bet. Even though the Irons are at home, BetVictor have them available at 15/4 to cause an upset. The draw is the temping price of 3/1 with Betfred.

However, we just can’t see past an Arsenal victory on Saturday. Despite drawing two of their last three Premier League matches, we advise you to take up Sky Bet’s decent odds of 3/4 for them to leave the London Stadium with maximum points.

Bournemouth v Liverpool

After drawing a blank against Southampton, Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool got back to winning ways last weekend, beating lowly Sunderland 2-0 at Anfield. This Sunday, the Reds travel to the Vitality Stadium to take on Eddie Howe’s solid Bournemouth outfit.

Klopp’s troops are the strong favourites (8/11 at Betfred) to secure the win on the south coast. Since losing at Burnley at the beginning of the season, Liverpool have won a staggering 11 of their following 14 matches in all competitions. Their form has seen them reach the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup and maintain a challenge at the top of the Premier League table.

As for Bournemouth, they have already proven that they are up for the fight this season. Howe’s men may have eventually lost 3-1 at the Emirates last Sunday, but the Cherries had Arsenal worried on plenty of occasions. The bookies have Bournemouth as the 21/5 underdogs (BetVictor) this Sunday. The draw is available at 16/5 with William Hill.

However, we can’t envision anything other than a comfortable victory for Liverpool in this one. Being only a point off Chelsea at the top, the Reds will be eager to win well at Dean Court. Ladbrokes are offering the tasty price of 7/4 for the away side to win -1 on Sunday.

Everton v Manchester United

Both Everton and Manchester United have had a similar kind of season so far – both started extremely well, but have tailed off drastically. The Toffees have won just once in nine, whilst United have won one of their last seven Premier League games.

As a consequence, both sides will be desperate for maximum points this weekend. Despite being out of form and away from home, Jose Mourinho’s men are the 5/4 favourites with Betfred to claim the victory. Meanwhile, looking at the odds comparison, the best betting odds you can get on a Toffees win are 27/10 at BetVictor.

The Red Devils have drawn their last four successive league games at Old Trafford, whilst Ronald Koeman’s troops have drawn four of their 13 Premier League matches.

Our betting tip in this one is for Sunday’s showdown to end all square at Goodison Park. It’s difficult to pick a winner and, with Bet365 offering 12/5 for the draw, we feel that’s too good a price to turn down.

Middlesbrough v Hull City

Last up, we take a look at Monday night’s fixture between strugglers Middlesbrough and Hull City. We may only be 13 matches in, but this one can already be construed as a relegation six-pointer.

With only one point separating these two in the Premier League table, which one of these can steal a march on their rivals with victory on Monday? Boro currently sit 15th in the table on 12 points, with Hull a point but three places behind in 18th.

Being at the Riverside Stadium, the best betting odds you can get on a home win are 4/5 with Sky Bet. The Tigers, who have lost a staggering eight of their last 11 Premier League matches, are available at 9/2 at BetVictor to leave with maximum points. The draw, however, is the very tempting price of 11/4 (Coral).

Although we feel Monday’s match has the potential to be a tight affair at the Riverside, we’re predicting Aitor Karanka’s men to nick a narrow win. Therefore, Sky Bet’s 4/5 for a home victory has caught our eye the most.
