Premier League Matchday 26: Best Betting Football Tips

West Ham United vs. Newcastle United: EPL Betting Tip

Saturday’s Premier League action gets up and running at the London Stadium when West Ham and Newcastle go head-to-head. The Magpies have won their last three to move out of the drop zone, but the Hammers are the clear favourites on home soil.

West Ham head into this one having won four of their last seven in the league. Last time out, the Irons netted at the death to pick up a handy point at Leicester. David Moyes’ side are in fifth position with 41 points to their name, just two points behind fourth-place Man United.

Our betting prediction:
Michail Antonio to score first

Eddie Howe’s Newcastle have fired their way out of the bottom three after three successive wins. Having beaten Leeds and Everton, a Kieran Trippier goal gave the Magpies a vital 1-0 victory over Aston Villa last weekend. They are not out of the woods yet, but Newcastle will be feeling a whole lot better about life.

Howe’s troops are in high spirits, but West Ham should make home advantage count in this one. Back the home win and both teams to score at 12/5.

Manchester City vs. Tottenham Hotspur: Best Premier League Betting Predictions

The standout fixture of the Premier League weekend takes place at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday evening, as Pep Guardiola’s Man City take on Antonio Conte’s Tottenham. The Citizens are in rampant form and will be looking for another comfortable home win.

Since suffering a shock home defeat to Crystal Palace back in October, Man City have dropped just two Premier League points. They have barely put a foot wrong of late, winning 12 and drawing one of their last 13 in all competitions. In midweek, City won 5-0 at Sporting Lisbon in the UEFA Champions League.

Conte started life at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in fine fashion, winning five and drawing three of his opening eight Premier League games in charge. However, things have gone downhill for Conte and Spurs after three straight league defeats. Tottenham have lost to Chelsea, Southampton and Wolves.

We can only see one winner here. Liverpool are keeping Man City honest at the top, but Pep’s boys look unstoppable right now. Back City to be winning at half time and full time at 7/10.

Manchester City 1/4
Draw 5/1
Tottenham Hotspur 21/2

Leeds United vs. Manchester United: EPL Betting Odds & Predictions

On Sunday afternoon, old rivals Leeds and Man United lock horns in a mouth-watering matchup at Elland Road. The Whites have been struggling lately, while the Red Devils have suffered just one league loss since Ralf Rangnick took over. Man United are the odds-on favourites to get the win in Yorkshire.

Leeds’ second season back in the Premier League has been tough going thus far. The Whites have picked up just five wins and hover only six points above the dreaded drop zone. Last time out, Marcelo Bielsa’s boys fell to a poor 3-0 defeat at Everton.

Man United have made steady progress under Rangnick. The Red Devils ended a three-game winless run in midweek, beating Brighton & Hove Albion 2-0 at Old Trafford. In doing so, Man United moved back into the Premier League’s top four.

Leeds will be desperate for a positive result in front of their fans, but we can see Man United returning to Manchester with a big three points in the bag. You can get the away win at the decent price of 22/25.

Leeds United 3/1

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs. Leicester City: Best EPL Betting Tips on Matchday 26

Wolves and Leicester do battle in an all-Midlands Premier League encounter at Molineux on Sunday. Bruno Lage has done a fine job since taking over from the popular Nuno Espirito Santo, and Wanderers will want another three points here.

Wolves are certainly in with a shout of gate-crashing the top-four party. Lage’s boys are in seventh spot right now, six points away from the final Champions League position. They head into this weekend’s matchup having won five of their previous seven league games.

Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester have endured a difficult season so far. After 22 games played, the Foxes have mustered up just seven wins and find themselves in the bottom half of the Premier League table. They shipped at the death to drop two points against West Ham last weekend.

Wolves have been very easy on the eye recently, and we are backing the home side to chalk up another three points on Sunday. Check out the tempting odds of 19/5 for the Wolves win and both teams to score.

Wolverhampton Wanderers 5/4
Draw 9/4
Leicester City 49/20
