Premier League Matchday 26: Best Betting Football Tips

Manchester City vs. West Ham United: EPL Betting Tip

Pep Guardiola’s Man City welcome David Moyes’ West Ham to the Etihad this Saturday. City are on an astonishing winning run in the Premier League, and the leaders will be looking for another three points at the weekend.

Since a surprise home draw with West Bromwich Albion in mid-December, the Citizens have won 13 on the spin in the Premier League. As a result, Man City are now ten points clear at the top of the table and look nailed on to take the title away from Liverpool.

Our betting prediction:
Man City to be winning at half time & full time

West Ham have been the surprise package in the Premier League this season. Moyes’ Hammers are flying high in fourth spot, winning over half of their 25 league games. West Ham are currently above the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool in the race for the UEFA Champions League places.

The Irons are in fine fettle, but Man City are unstoppable at the moment, and the hosts should cruise to another three points this weekend. Back City to win both halves at 6/4.

Leicester City vs. Arsenal: Best Premier League Betting Predictions

Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City and Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal do battle at the King Power Stadium in Premier League action on Saturday. When these two met at the Emirates Stadium back in October, a late Jamie Vardy goal gave the Foxes a 1-0 win. Can they do the double this weekend?

Leicester are enjoying another superb season under the popular Rodgers. With just 13 games to play, City are in third place in the Premier League, racking up an impressive 49 points. They are level on points with second-place Man United and six clear of Chelsea, who are currently in fifth.

Arsenal have shown a real improvement in recent months, but the Gunners still languish in a lowly 11th position. On the whole, the London side have had a miserable season, winning ten, drawing four and losing 11 of 25 Premier League games.

Arsenal have lost three of their last four in the league, while Leicester have won six of their previous nine Premier League matches. We fancy the Foxes to beat the Gunners without conceding again, which is generously priced at 10/3.

Leicester City 6/4

Chelsea vs. Manchester United: EPL Betting Odds & Predictions

Arguably, the standout game of the Premier League weekend is Sunday’s showdown between old rivals Chelsea and Man United. Thomas Tuchel is unbeaten as Blues boss, while the Red Devils have lost just one Premier League game since 1st November.

Since taking over in west London, Chelsea are undefeated in eight in all competitions. So far, Tuchel has guided the Blues to wins over Burnley, Tottenham Hotspur, Sheffield United, Barnsley, Newcastle United and Atletico Madrid. Can they add Manchester United to that list at the weekend?

After back-to-back draws with Everton and West Brom, Man United returned to winning ways last weekend, easing to a 3-1 home victory over Newcastle. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men have been excellent on their travels this season, winning eight and drawing four of 12 away matches in the Premier League.

Sunday’s heavyweight clash could go either way at the Bridge. The duo drew 0-0 at Old Trafford in the reverse game, and this one could also end all square. The goalless stalemate is available at 10/1.

Chelsea 6/5

Sheffield United vs. Liverpool: Best EPL Betting Tips on Matchday 26

Jurgen Klopp takes his wounded Liverpool to Bramall Lane to face Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United on Sunday night. The Reds will be desperate to avoid a fifth straight Premier League loss. As you would expect, despite their alarming slump in form, Liverpool are the bookies’ favourites.

The Blades are heading back down to the EFL Championship, as the Sheffield club are 14 points away from safety. Overall, Wilder’s side have lost 20 of their 25 matches, picking up just three wins in the process.

Champions Liverpool have slipped down to sixth after four straight defeats. Last weekend, the Reds were beaten at Anfield by rivals Everton, which extended their winless home run to six. Klopp’s boys have fared better away from home of late, winning three of their previous four in all competitions.

Liverpool head to Sheffield in dreadful form, but they should have enough in the locker to see off the league’s bottom team on Sunday. Check out the solid odds of 21/20 for the away side to win -1.

Sheffield United 7/1
