Premier League Matchday 19: Best Betting Football Tips

Manchester City vs. Leicester City: EPL Betting Tip

Man City welcome Leicester to the Etihad Stadium on Boxing Day. The champions opened a three-point gap at the summit of the Premier League table after last week’s results to make sure of top spot at Christmas. Will the Citizens add another three points to their tally on Sunday?

Man City have been in devastating form over the past couple of months or so. Since losing 2-0 at home to Crystal Palace on 30th October, the Citizens have bounced back with eight straight wins in the Premier League. In their last two, City have beaten Leeds United 7-0 and Newcastle United 4-0.

Our betting prediction:
Riyad Mahrez to score first

Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester have had a patchy run of results of late. The Foxes walloped Newcastle 4-0 in their last league outing but have only won two of the last seven in league action. Leicester, who were knocked out the Carabao Cup by Liverpool in the week, are in ninth spot with 22 points to their name.

Man City are on fire right now and look unstoppable. We fancy Pep’s boys to cruise to another comfortable victory on Boxing Day. Take a punt on the league leaders to be winning at half time and full time at 11/20.

Norwich City vs. Arsenal: Best Premier League Betting Predictions

Mikel Arteta’s in-form Arsenal make the trip to Carrow Road this Sunday to face bottom club Norwich. The Gunners are in red-hot form at present and will be backing themselves to leave Norfolk with maximum points.

Norwich have had a tough time in the Premier League on their return, winning just two of their opening 17. Dean Smith made a decent enough start, but the Canaries have lost three in a row. Overall, City have won two, drawn four and lost 11 to sit bottom on ten points.

Since the early weeks of the season, Arsenal have improved drastically. The Gunners head to Carrow Road having won four league and cup fixtures in a row. On Tuesday night, the Londoners eased past EFL League One outfit Sunderland to book their place in the last four of the Carabao Cup.

Last time out away from home in the league, Arsenal thumped Leeds 4-1 at Elland Road. Take a punt on Arteta’s boys to win -2 again at the top odds of 3/1.

Norwich City 7/1

Tottenham Hotspur vs. Crystal Palace: EPL Betting Odds & Predictions

Tottenham and Crystal Palace are set to lock horns in a Boxing Day London derby in the Premier League at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Spurs are unbeaten in the league since Antonio Conte arrived, while the Eagles have made a steady start under Patrick Vieira.

Tottenham are undefeated in five Premier League fixtures under new boss Conte, winning three and drawing two. In midweek, Spurs booked their spot in the last four of the EFL Cup with a hard-fought home win over rivals West Ham United.

After three straight defeats, Palace have put things right in their last two. The Eagles eased past Everton before drawing 2-2 with Southampton. Their last away win came at the home of the champions back in October.

Conte has settled in quickly at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, and the Lilywhites will be hoping to make home advantage count on Sunday afternoon. Check out the tempting odds of 11/4 for the home victory and both teams to score in this one.

Aston Villa vs. Chelsea: Best Premier League Betting Tips on Matchday 19

Aston Villa and Chelsea square off on Sunday evening at Villa Park. Since leaving Rangers to take over in the Midlands, Steven Gerrard has turned Villa’s fortunes around. However, they head into this home game against the European champions as the underdogs.

Aston Villa have shown a massive improvement since Gerrard took over. After six games, the Villans have won four and suffered one-goal losses to both Man City and Liverpool. As a result, Aston Villa have moved into the top half of the Premier League table.

Chelsea have had a little wobble lately, which has cost them their place at the top of the Premier League table. The Blues have secured just two wins from their last six league games. In the previous two, Chelsea have drawn with Everton and Watford.

Villa have not been an easy nut to crack under Gerrard, and we can see the home team holding Chelsea to frustrating draw in this one. The stalemate is priced at 11/4.

Aston Villa 22/5
Draw 11/4
Chelsea 7/10
