Premier League Matchday 5: Best Betting Football Tips

Everton vs. Liverpool: EPL Betting Tip

Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton and Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool square off at Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon for one of the most eagerly anticipated Merseyside derbies for a number of years. Can the Toffees finally get the better of their bitter rivals?

Everton have made a stunning start to their Premier League campaign, winning all four of their matches thus far. In fact, Ancelotti’s troops have won each of their opening seven league and cup games of the season.

Liverpool started the defence of their Premier League crown by winning their first three games. However, Klopp’s Reds crashed to a shock 7-2 defeat to Aston Villa before the international break. The mauling at Villa Park goes down as one of the biggest upsets in Premier League history.

Everton have not beaten Liverpool for ten years, but can the in-form Toffees edge past the wounded Reds this Saturday? We fancy the hosts to secure a narrow victory (3/1).

Manchester City vs. Arsenal: Best Premier League Betting Predictions

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City entertain Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday evening in a fascinating Premier League fixture. City have taken just one point from their last two, but Pep’s boys are the big favourites in this one.

Man City have made a poor start to their Premier League season. After kicking off with a hard-fought 3-1 win at Wolverhampton Wanderers, the Citizens fell to an embarrassing 5-2 home reverse in their second game. Last time out, City were held to a 1-1 draw by Premier League newcomers Leeds United at Elland Road.

Arsenal have picked up nine points from a possible 12 so far. Arteta’s troops began with back-to-back wins over Fulham and West Ham before losing 3-1 at Liverpool. Before the break, the Gunners edged past Sheffield United at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal have improved massively since Arteta arrived, while Man City are in poor form, but we fancy Guardiola’s boys to get back to winning ways on home soil. It will not be straightforward, though, so take a punt on the home win and both teams to score at 6/4.

Manchester City 12/15
Draw 4/1

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

On Saturday night, Steve Bruce’s Newcastle United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United do battle at St James’ Park. This is a vital fixture for the Red Devils, who were hammered at home by Tottenham before the international break. Can Man Utd restore some pride this weekend?

The Magpies have made a decent start, winning two, drawing one and losing one of four. Bruce’s boys have already won at West Ham and taken a point at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Can Newcastle pile even more misery on Man Utd this Saturday?

Manchester United were humiliated on their own patch in their previous outing. Despite taking an early lead against Jose Mourinho’s Spurs, Ole’s boys went on to lose 6-1 at Old Trafford. The Red Devils have played three Premier League games thus far, winning one and losing two.

Man Utd will be desperate to get back to winning ways after their mauling by Tottenham, but we fancy Newcastle to hold Solskjaer’s side to a frustrating draw at St James’. There is excellent value in the draw and under 2.5 goals at 16/5.

Newcastle United 19/5

Tottenham Hotspur vs. West Ham United: Best Premier League Betting Tips on Matchday 5

Rivals Tottenham and West Ham go head-to-head at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday afternoon. With both teams in fine fettle, we should be in for a cracking London derby. However, the hosts are the clear favourites with the bookies.

Mourinho’s men will still be buzzing from their 6-1 victory at Old Trafford. Spurs have been fruitful in front of goal lately, netting a staggering 13 in their last two. Can the Lilywhites move on to ten points with victory over the Hammers on Sunday?

West Ham have secured two stunning wins in their previous two league encounters. After thumping Wolves 4-0 at the London Stadium, goals from Michail Antonio, Pablo Fornals and Jarrod Bowen gave the Irons a 3-0 victory at the King Power Stadium last time out.

David Moyes’ men are in good form, but Spurs should make home advantage count at the weekend. Check out the decent odds of 6/4 for Jose’s boys to be winning at half time and full time.
