Premier League Matchday 18: Best Betting Football Tips

Leeds United vs. Arsenal: EPL Betting Tip

On Saturday evening, Leeds and Arsenal do battle in a tasty fixture at Elland Road. United will be desperate to bounce back from the humiliating loss in midweek, while the Gunners will be up for this one having moved into the top four.

Leeds’ season has yet to take off, as Marcelo Bielsa’s boys have won just three of their opening 17 games. Last time out, the Yorkshire club crashed to an embarrassing 7-0 defeat to rampant Man City at the Etihad Stadium. Can they avoid a third straight loss this weekend?

Our betting prediction:
Alexandre Lacazette to score first

After a win over West Ham United on Wednesday, Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal moved into the UEFA Champions League places in the Premier League. The Gunners have been excellent at home this season, but they head to Elland Road having lost three away matches on the bounce.

We fancy Arsenal to get back to winning ways on their travels this weekend. Check out the decent odds of 13/5 for the away win and both teams to score at Elland Road.

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs. Chelsea: Best Premier League Betting Predictions

Thomas Tuchel takes his Chelsea troops to Molineux this Sunday to play Bruno Lage’s Wolves. Wanderers have improved as the season has progressed, and the home side will be tough opponents for the current European champions. Nevertheless, the Blues are the strong favourites.

Wolves picked up an impressive away win in midweek, with a Romain Saiss’ goal giving them a 1-0 victory at Brighton & Hove Albion. Previously, Lage’s side had drawn two and lost two of four. Wolves are in eighth spot, five points away from fourth.

Chelsea dropped points at home once again in their last outing. This time, out-of-form Everton left Stamford Bridge with a 1-1 draw. The Blues were so strong defensively but have failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their past five Premier League fixtures.

Chelsea will be desperate to get back on track with a win in the Midlands at the weekend, but we can see Wolves holding them to a draw at Molineux. The 1-1 stalemate at 13/2 has caught the eye.

Wolverhampton Wanderers 11/2
Draw 11/4
Chelsea 8/15

Newcastle United vs. Manchester City: EPL Betting Odds & Predictions

Premier League champions and current leaders Man City travel to St James’ Park to play lowly Newcastle on Sunday. Pep Guardiola’s boys are in devastating form and will be looking for another easy win here. As expected, City are the overwhelming favourites with the bookies.

Newcastle are having a pretty abysmal season, winning just one of their opening 18 league and cup fixtures. They have had some tough games of late, facing Leicester City and Liverpool in the last two. They now play both Manchester clubs in the next two games.

Man City have bounced back from October’s shock home defeat to Crystal Palace in stunning style. Pep’s boys have won seven in a row in the Premier League, scoring 20 and conceding three in the process. On Tuesday night, the Citizens put Leeds to the sword with a 7-0 win at the Etihad.

Newcastle are in desperate need of some points, but Man City should be far too strong for the Magpies on Sunday. The bookies are offering 11/20 for City to be winning at half time and full time at St James’.

Newcastle United 14/1
Draw 13/2
Manchester City 1/5

Tottenham Hotspur vs. Liverpool: Best Premier League Betting Tips on Matchday 18

The final game of the round looks a cracker on paper, as Antonio Conte’s Tottenham entertain Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Spurs are unbeaten in the league under Conte, while the Reds are on a stunning winning run at present.

Conte has taken charge of four Premier League games at Tottenham, picking up three wins and a draw. After drawing at Everton, the Londoners have secured successive home victories over Leeds, Brentford and Norwich City.

Liverpool have bounced back from their one and only defeat of the campaign with eight league and cup wins in a row. In the Premier League, the Reds have won six on the spin, conceding just two goals in the process. The Merseysiders are just a point adrift of leaders Man City in second.

Tottenham have been tough to beat under Conte, but we fancy in-form Liverpool to leave the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this Sunday with three points in the bag. The away victory is available at 4/7.

Tottenham Hotspur 4/1
Draw 18/5
Liverpool 4/7
