Premier League Betting Odds - Focus on Liverpool v Man United

12/10/2016 11:15

there are some huge premier league games on saturday and sunday this weekend, with arguably the biggest of the 10 fixtures coming on monday. after the international break the top flight is back with a real bang.

things get underway with a clash between the last two premier league champions, chelsea and leicester. it is monday night’s game though, between liverpool and man united, that really excites. in between we take a look at three other huge premier league showdowns though.

we’ve got betting tips, predictions, analysis and live odds comparison for all five games. so, if you fancy a bet on the premier league this weekend, read on as we delve into the biggest matches to try and pick out some winning bets at great odds.

chelsea v leicester

2016 premier league champions leicester travel to 2015 title winners chelsea in the opening game of the weekend. it should be a thrilling battle, with both sides far better going forwards than they are at the back. that may be something of a surprise given both are managed by italians but thus far both chelsea and leicester have been most un-italian in their approach.

chelsea are the strong favourites here at odds of 8/13 whilst leicester can be backed at 5/1 with coral and the draw is 10/3 with betvictor. chelsea are seventh but after a good start under antonio conte they have taken just four points in their last four matches.

with leicester also a little short on confidence, having lost all three of their away games in the league thus far, this one should be a close contest. ultimately though we have to favour the home side and we think leicester will make it four away days in a row when they have scored and lost. as such, our prediction and betting tip here is chelsea and btts at nice betting odds of 11/5 with william hill.

man city v everton

this 3pm kick-off gives the citizens a chance to claim a fourth straight home premier league win. thus far they have scored nine at the etihad and conceded just two but the fact that bournemouth (currently 13th) are the highest ranked side they have welcomed somewhat takes the gloss of those stats.

regardless, city are the big favourites with the bookmakers here, priced at 1/2 with coral. the stalemate is available at 4/1 whilst the best odds on everton are 6/1 at betfair.

the toffees started the season brilliantly but defeat to norwich in the efl cup was followed by a loss at bournemouth and a home draw with palace. still, everton are fifth and look to have a good balance between attack and defence under ronald koeman.

this should be a tight game and whilst city should win, we doubt it will be easy. as such our betting tip is for the home side to win by exactly one goal. that can be backed at best betting odds of 37/13 with pinnacle and looks great value, with 1-0 or 2-1 our correct score predictions.

crystal palace v west ham

saturday’s late game is this london derby, with palace flying high and west ham struggling. the hammers are down in 18th and there is real pressure on slaven bilic. in contrast, alan pardew, who began the campaign needing results and didn’t initially get them, has turned things around, with winning three and drawing two of their last five premier league clashes.

palace are rightly firm favourites here at fair odds of 5/4 but we’re looking to the goalscorer markets for our betting tip. christian benteke cost palace a lot of money but has already started paying that fee back with goals. the big belgian notched after eight seconds for belgium on monday night and looks a great bet to open the scoring here at odds of 4/1 with coral.

southampton v burnley

the second of sunday’s games is on the south coast between two sides in midtable but looking down, not up. saints have nine points from seven games to sit 10th, with burnley two points and four places worse off.

this should be a close contest but the home side are deserved favourites at best betting odds of 5/12 with pinnacle. that looks a shade short for us though in what we predict will be a very tight game.

as such, our betting tip here is the draw, available at great betting odds of 4/1 with betvictor. saints have drawn two of three at st mary’s and with burnley desperate to earn a first away point after two defeats we think the spoils will be shared here.

liverpool v man united

monday night football has a cracker for us, with united’s trip to anfield. there is huge optimism at the merseyside club following some great performances and if they can take all three points here many will start to believe they can challenge for the title.

jurgen klopp’s methods are really starting to bear fruit and his work at liverpool is much more advanced than jose mourinho’s at liverpool. both are prone to inconsistency though, which makes this a tough match to predict.

the odds men make the home side clear favourites at 8/7, with man united available at best betting odds of 11/4 with paddy power and the draw on offer at 13/5 with unibet.

the reds have only played twice at home this term, winning 5-1 and 4-1. with good results on the road against top sides too there is every reason to believe they can steamroller united here.

under the expanded-anfield lights the atmosphere will be electric and we’re going to be bold in our prediction for a huge home win. you can play it safer if you wish and just back klopp’s men for the three points but we’re going to back them -2.5 goals at big odds of 15/2 with unibet.
