English Premier League Odds: Champions League Ambitions Put to the Test

English Premier League Odds: Champions League Ambitions Put to the Test

this weekend’s premier league action seems to be a step up on last week, with an impressive double header coming up on sunday. we have a couple of huge games in the race for the top four, with tottenham’s meeting with liverpool the highlight of the bunch. ahead of this weekend’s top flight offering, we’ve picked out a few betting tips on this weekend’s key matches.

chelsea v watford: chelsea take on high flying watford

chelsea’s back to back defeats have seen them drop out of the top four, with watford jumping into the champions league places. the hornets are in flying form, and they visit the only team to concede a league goal to crystal palace this season. surely the hornets should be able to get a goal in this trip to the champions?

we think watford should really enjoy this trip, given that they’ve scored at least twice in their last five premier league away days. that’s a run which started at stamford bridge, with watford scoring at least two at this ground in both of their visits since they returned to the top flight. we’re backing both teams to score here at 21/20 with betfair. we’re also backing over 1.5 watford goals given their record at this ground, which is a huge 5/1 with bet365.

southampton v west brom: will saints’ home struggles continue?

southampton against west brom might not be the highlight of the weekend’s live games, but there seems to be a chance to find some value on this one. southampton are in awful form at home, failing to win nine of their last 10 at st mary’s. that should open up an opportunity for the baggies, who have now drawn three of their last four matches in the league.

we can see a similar result between these two this weekend, and the draw looks like a great price at chunky odds of 5/2 with betvictor. the pair have struggled for victories this term, and they’re both coached by conservative managers. this doesn’t seem set to be a high scoring game, so we’re going with a 1-1 draw here, which can be backed at 6/1 with betfred.

everton v arsenal: everton and arsenal aim to end struggles

both everton and arsenal started the season with champions league ambitions, but this already looks like a battle for the europa league spots. these two have made poor starts to the season overall, despite showing glimpses of what they are capable of. both teams seem to have come up a little short in the transfer market, and that’s ultimately costing them points given the competitive nature of the premier league.

picking a winner between the pair is difficult, with neither really in any kind of form coming into this one. while arsenal had been showing signs of improvement, their collapse at watford last weekend is still fresh. both had midweek europa league action to worry about, and they both just seem to be around the same level heading into this tie.

we do expect goals in this clash, with both sides struggling defensively. we think it’s worth going for both teams to score again, which is available at best betting odds of 7/10 with bet365. we’re also quite tempted by the draw in this game, which can be backed at 5/2 with ladbrokes. arsenal failed to win at any of the top seven last season, while everton won just two of their 12 matches with teams above them last term.

tottenham v liverpool: liverpool head for wembley

fresh from their draw with real madrid, tottenham put their champions league credentials to the test in a clash with liverpool at wembley. with both sides hoping to secure a place in the top four once again, which of these two high pressing sides will manage to walk away with the points in this clash?

games between these two tend to be tight, given how they both relentlessly press and deny space to their opponents. the reds have troubled spurs at white hart lane in recent years, and they should be more than capable of doing the same when the pair meet under the wembley arch this weekend.

liverpool were unbeaten in their matches with the top eight sides last season. this time around they’ve won one, drawn one and lost one with 10 men against man city, while spurs have already tasted defeat at home to chelsea. we’re ultimately siding with the away side, who seem like brilliant value to avoid defeat in this game. liverpool are 3/4 with william hill on the double chance market following their 7-0 win over maribor this week.

while that was a really high scoring affair, we can see a quieter clash at wembley this weekend. liverpool have been struggling to convert chances so far, while both sides are likely to struggle to find openings against the other given their style of play. we’re backing a 1-1 draw in sunday’s clash, which can be backed at big odds of 6/1 with coral.
