English Premier League Betting Odds: Spurs Keep Chasing after the Blues

antonio conte’s chelsea took another giant leap towards the premier league title with a 3-1 victory at bournemouth last weekend. meanwhile, there were also wins for tottenham hotspur, liverpool, manchester city and manchester united.

at the other end, crystal palace extended their advantage over the teams in the relegation zone, as they sealed a huge three points against a sorry arsenal side on monday night.

we’re now well and truly at the business end of the campaign, where one win or slip up can make or break a side’s season. we’ve got five big games to preview from this weekend’s premier league action, with sunday’s blockbuster affair between manchester united and chelsea standing out.

tottenham hotspur v bournemouth: easy for spurs

for the second weekend running, tottenham hotspur get the premier league action underway in saturday’s early kick off. mauricio pochettino’s men welcome eddie howe and his bournemouth team to white hart lane. a home win would close the gap on chelsea to just four points.

spurs have been scintillating of late, and seem to be getting closer and closer to winning the premier league title. the lilywhites have dropped just four points at home this term, winning 14 of 16 pl fixtures at white hart lane. tottenham go into this one as the 1/4 clear favourites with ladbrokes.

the cherries look safe for another season in the top flight, as they are seven points clear of 17th place swansea city. despite putting on a brave showing against the leaders last saturday, howe’s boys were beaten 3-1. bournemouth are available at 12/1 at sporting bet to cause an upset, whilst you can get the draw at odds of 11/2 (bet365).

we believe it will be a stroll in the park for pochettino and co. in this one. looking at our live odds comparison, spurs are available at 8/11 with coral to win -1, a price we feel is worth taking advantage of.

southampton v manchester city: too close to call

claude puel’s southampton and pep guardiola’s manchester city go head-to-head at st mary’s on saturday evening for an intriguing fixture. the saints will be looking to end their season in style, whilst city still have work to do to hold on to their uefa champions league spot.

southampton have had an up and down season, but an efl cup runners-up medal and a top half premier league finish would not be a bad first season for puel. in contrast, the citizens should have been challenging for the title and still in the champions league.

city head to st mary’s as the 3/4 favourites with betfred, whilst southampton are priced at 19/5 with betvictor to get the win in front of their home supporters.

when the pair met at the etihad stadium earlier in the season, they played out an even 1-1 draw. we can see another stalemate between these two on saturday, with betway offering the tempting odds of 3/1.

west bromwich albion v liverpool: big three points for the reds

on sunday, liverpool look to cement their place in the top four even further when they make the trip to the hawthorns to play tony pulis’ west bromwich albion. five wins in eight has given the reds a great chance of securing champions league football for next season.

as for the baggies, they have had a solid campaign in the premier league. tipped to be in a relegation scrap before the season kicked off, albion have spent most of their time in the top 10.

west brom go into this clash as the 7/2 underdogs at betfair, with the draw coming in at 14/5 with bet365. meanwhile, you can get an away triumph at nice odds of 10/11 (betfair).

this match could go either way, especially with pulis’ men on home soil. however, liverpool have hit decent form at just the right time, and we fancy them to add another three points to their tally in this one. therefore, make the most of betfair’s 10/11 for a reds win.

manchester united v chelsea: yet another draw for united

the most exciting match in the premier league this weekend takes place at old trafford on sunday, as manchester united host chelsea. with so much still to play for, both sides will be looking for the points, which should make for a fascinating contest in manchester.

united will be out for revenge for their embarrassing 4-0 defeat at stamford bridge back in october, which remains their last premier league defeat. the red devils have lost just seven times in all competitions this season, with two of those defeats coming to chelsea.

after sealing yet another win at the weekend, the blues can now smell the champagne. after spurs’ 4-0 hammering of watford earlier in the day, chelsea showed great composure by winning 3-1 at dean court last saturday.

according to our live odds comparison, manchester united are the 17/10 favourites with betvictor to claim the win, whilst chelsea are available at 19/10 with the same firm. however, we believe this huge matchup will end all square at old trafford, with bet365’s 11/5 being your best price.

middlesbrough v arsenal: gunners to fire to win

last up, arsene wenger’s struggling arsenal make the long trip to the riverside stadium, as they square off against a middlesbrough side who are fighting for their premier league lives. if the gunners want to avoid a sixth pl defeat in nine, they will have to play a lot better than they did the previous monday night.

looking at the form table over the past 10 fixtures, arsenal sit 12th. however, boro lie rock bottom, as they have won none of their last 10 premier league matches. the londoners may be out of form, but they should have enough qualities within their squad to see off the teesside outfit on monday.

arsenal head to the riverside as the 8/15 favourites with betfair, whilst boro are priced at odds of 6/1 with bet365 to seal a memorable win. the draw, meanwhile, is 10/3 with sporting bet.

we believe arsenal must put on a strong performance for their fed up fans, so we’re predicting the gunners will win well in the north east. betfred are offering 11/8 for wenger’s troops to win -1 on monday.
