Sevilla v Barcelona Predictions & Betting Odds – 23rd January 2019

Barcelona
Sevilla v Barcelona Betting Tips - Premier League, 23rd January 8.30pm It is on to the quarterfinals of the Copa del Rey and title holders Barcelona have a tough tie in front of them. Sevilla have put together a good season as they push for a top-four finish in the league. Can they make a cup impact too? Read our predictions for Sevilla v Barcelona.

Sevilla v Barcelona Betting Odds*

Barcelona 17/20 Sevilla 13/5 Draw 3/1 * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 21st, 2019 at 1:01 p.m.) [bbutton bookmaker="bet365"] [toc heading_levels="2"]

Sevilla v Barcelona Preview

These two have already met twice this season. They were paired up in the Spanish Super Cup in August, with Barcelona taking a 2-1 win there. Then it was a La Liga meeting in October with Barcelona taking a 4-2 win at the Nou Camp. Sevilla have had a decent season though as they are up in the top four in the Spanish top flight. Their form has just slipped back a little bit though with one win in their last six in all competitions. They lost 2-0 against Real Madrid in a league game on the weekend. They have failed to net in any of their last three games as well, so they have just gone cold. In the last round of the Copa Del Rey, they took a 3-2 aggregate win over Athletic Bilbao. As a positive Sevilla's home form is W13 D2 L3 in all competitions this season. Barcelona lost the first leg of their Copa del Rey tie against Levante in the last round. They went down 2-1 away from home but turned it around with a 3-1 home win, Lionel Messi helping out. Barcelona were nowhere near full strength for that first leg. Barca are W6 L1 in their last seven games in all competitions and have lost just one game since back in mid-November. They had a four-match winning streak away from home snapped with that 2-1 loss at Levante in the first leg of the last round of this competition. Barca are unbeaten in eleven against Sevilla. They met in last season’s Copa del Rey final actually with Barca winning 5-0.

Sevilla v Barcelona Predictions

Barcelona to win: Barca may well field a slightly stronger side for this one than they did against Levante. They have head to head form going against Sevilla and so we will predict the narrow away win.

Redknapp backed into 8/1 to be next Leicester manager

Football Betting
Harry Redknapp, who won the latest edition of I’m A Celebrity has been thrust into the limelight in potentially becoming the next Leicester manager. There has been mounting pressure on the current Foxes boss Claude Puel and within 24 hours, Redknapp had been slashed from 200/1 down to 8/1 to take over at the King Power Stadium* (betting odds taken from bet365 on January 19th, 2019 at 6:00 pm). That’s has left Redknapp as the third favourite to get the job done with only Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers and Burnley boss Sean Dyche shorter priced options. There has really been no link to support all of this support for Redknapp apart from the fact that he found himself back in the spotlight with his stint in the jungle.

Next Leicester Manager Odds*

Brendan Rodgers 6/4 Sean Dyche 3/1 Harry Redknapp 4/1 David Wager 8/1 Nigel Pearson 25/1 Slavisa Jokanovic 25/1 Sam Allardyce 25/1 David Moyes 25/1 Chris Coleman 25/1 Alan Pardew 25/1 Gary Rowett 25/1 Michael O’Neill 25/1 Carlos Carvalhal 25/1 Rafa Benitez 33/1 * (betting odds taken from BetVictor on January 19th, 2019 at 6:00 pm) [bbutton bookmaker="betvictor"]

Newcastle v Cardiff Predictions & Betting Odds – 19th January 2019

Newcastle
Newcastle v Cardiff Betting Tips - Premier League, 19th January 3.00pm Newcastle are third from bottom, one point behind and one place beneath Cardiff. So this is a huge game at St James’ Park in the relegation battle. Can the Magpies snap themselves out of poor form to land a much-needed win? Or will Cardiff be able to put some important further distance between themselves and the drop zone? Read our predictions for Newcastle v Cardiff.

Newcastle v Cardiff Betting Odds*

Newcastle 17/20 Draw 5/2 Cardiff 16/5 * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 14th, 2019 at 9:40 p.m.) [bbutton bookmaker="bet365"] [toc heading_levels="2"]

Newcastle News and Form

Newcastle came up short away from home last weekend as they paid a visit to Stamford Bridge and lost 2-1 against Chelsea. That has left them with back-to-back defeats and they have failed take a win in any of their last five Premier League fixtures (D2 L3). Actually looking back at their form the Magpies have managed to take just the one win in their last nine Premier League fixtures now. That slump has seen them slip back to the relegation zone. They haven’t had a lot to cheer about on home soil at St James’ Park. Newcastle’s record on home soil in the top flight this season is W2 D1 L8. Not helping their cause in this one is that they had to go through extra time in order to beat Blackburn in an FA Cup replay on Tuesday at Ewood Park. That's the last thing they need at the moment as they try and maintain their Premier League status. Newcastle have only produced a seven goals in their 11 home games this season in the Premier League. They have conceded an average of 1.5 goals per home fixture so it is easy to see where they have come up short. Not one league fixture this season at St James’ Park has ended over 3.5 goals. So it’s hard to see this being a high-scoring fixture on the weekend. Newcastle have taken just two clean sheets on home soil the season. They haven’t managed a clean sheet in any of their last four league games home and away combined. Just twice this season have Newcastle opened the scoring in a home game. Their half time record at home in the top flight is D1 D6 L4. Five of their home games have been 0-0 at the midway break.

Newcastle v Cardiff Head to Head

There was a 0-0 draw when the two met in South Wales earlier this season Newcastle are unbeaten in four games against Cardiff (W3 D1) The Magpies have won their last nine league home games against the Bluebirds Cardiff have scored just one goal in their last four games against the Magpies  
Key-Facts - Newcastle v Cardiff
  • These are two of the three lowest scoring sides in the Premier league this season
  • Newcastle have collected just two home victories the season in the top flight
  • Cardiff have managed just one away win this season in the Premier league
 

Cardiff News and Form

The Bluebirds earned a point in a 0-0 home draw with Huddersfield last weekend. Given their fight against relegation themselves that can be seen as points dropped by Cardiff. It could have largely been worse for the bluebirds because Huddersfield were denied a penalty. Anyway, Cardiff are now W1 D2 L1 in their last four top-flight fixtures so they are digging out the points and in their position, every point is so valuable. Cardiff have only taken one away victory this season in the Premier League with them having produced a W1 D2 L7 record away from home. In that sequence of away games, Cardiff have managed only the six goals but they have averaged 1.8 goals per game against them on their travels. However, they have taken back-to-back clean sheets away from home two or three that they have managed this season. The goals which they have come up with away from home this season in the top flight 83% of them have come in the second period of matches. Cardiff have not been winning at the halftime break in any away fixture this season in the top flight. 40% of Cardiff’s away games this season have ended over 3.5 goals. 67% of the goals that Cardiff have conceded away from home this season have been in the second half of games. There is only one side who currently has a worse away record than Cardiff have the season and that is Fulham. Newcastle are only one of two sides to have scored fewer league goals than Cardiff have.

Newcastle v Cardiff Tips & Odds

Half time draw 11/10 Under 2.5 goals at 8/13 * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 14th, 2019 at 9:40 p.m.)

Newcastle v Cardiff Predictions

Draw: This one looks as if it is going to be too tight to call at the end of the day. Newcastle haven’t done enough on home soil, and it doesn’t really look as if the Bluebirds are going to be doing a lot else other than ensuring they avoid defeat. Draw.

Watford v Burnley Predictions & Betting Odds – 19th January 2019

Watford
Watford v Burnley Betting Tips - Premier League, 19th January 3.00pm Watford moved up to seventh in the table last weekend with a three-point haul away at Crystal Palace. They worked hard for those points too. It sees them having lost only one of their last six league games and they go as favourites at home against Burnley on the weekend. The Clarets though are on a three-match winning streak, showing how survival is done. Read our predictions for Watford v Burnley.

Watford News and Form

Watford picked up a good away win at Crystal Palace last weekend in the Premier League. That leaves them on a three-match undefeated streak of form in the top flight (W1 D2). The Hornets have only suffered one defeat in their last seven league fixtures now so have been carrying a bit of form with them. Overall this season at Vicarage Road, Watford have posted a W5 D1 L5 record in the top flight. Their chances in this one could be good as four of the five home defeats which they have suffered have all been against sites currently residing in the top six in the table. Watford have scored 16 goals this season conceding 18. 82% of their home games this season have ended up over 2.5 goals so there has been a big trend in Watford’s home games. While they have not earned clean sheet in any of their last five home or away, Watford have scored in each of their last eight Premier League fixtures. Back on home soil, they have scored 69% of their home goals after the halftime break in matches. They have however, only opened the scoring in four of their 11 home games.

Watford v Burnley Head to Head

The Hornets earned a 3-1 away win at Burnley when they met in August 2018 Burnley are W3 D4 L2 in their last nine games against Watford Three of the last four EPL meetings have gone over 2.5 goals Watford have lost only one of their last five home games against the Clarets (W2 D2)  
Key-Facts - Watford v Burnley
  • Watford are now on an eight match scoring streak in the Premier league
  • The Hornets have suffered only the one loss in their last seven league games played
  • Burnley have won each of their last three Premier league games
 

Burnley News and Form

Out of nowhere, Burnley have put some great form together having won each of their last three Premier League games. That is easily their best streak of form for the entire season. Overall on their travels this season in the Premier league Burnley are W2 D2 L7 which clearly isn't great. However, Burnley did get an away win in their last away game as they earned a 2-1 success out at bottom side Huddersfield. That win for Burnley over the Terriers snapped a six-match winless streak of form that Burnley were on in the Premier League away from Turf Moor. Burnley had lost five of those six games in that sequence. On their travels Burnley have only netted the nine away goals but at the back, they have conceded an average of exactly 2 goals per away game against them. 36% of their away games have gone over 3.5 goals and there doesn’t appear to be a good chance of goals turning up in this fixture. The Clarets have not earned a clean sheet in any of their last four top-flight away games. But they have scored in each of their last five Premier league fixtures home and away combined. Burnley’s half-time record away from home is D7 L4 from their 11 games. Five of the seven half-time draws in that sequence have been 0-0 scores. Burnley have the second worst defensive record in the Premier League this season with only Fulham having conceded more. Only three teams have worse away record than the Clarets as well.

Watford v Burnley Tips & Odds

Watford to win & both teams to score at 5/2 Over 2.5 goals at 10/11 * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 14th, 2019 at 9:40 p.m.)

Watford v Burnley Predictions

Watford to win: The Hornets have done alright lately with three wins in their last six. We are going to predict that they can stop the winning streak of the Clarets in this one. It should be a good scrap but the home side can take it.

Southampton v Everton Predictions & Betting Odds – 19th January 2019

Southampton
Southampton v Everton Betting Tips - Premier League, 19th January 3.00pm The Saints jumped out of the drop zone last weekend as they collected a somewhat surprising three points out at Leicester. That was a massive boost for them and how they would love to extend their form further. They may get a chance to do so as Everton come for a visit as the Toffees have been having their struggles. Read our predictions for Southampton v Everton.

Southampton News and Form

Southampton gave their survival hopes a tremendous lift last weekend as they pulled off a surprise away win at the King Power against Leicester. That has left the Saints with four points collected from their last two league games. Things appear to be getting much better for the Saints. However, the top flight home form of Southampton leaves a lot to be desired. The Saints have posted a W1 D5 L4 record this season on home soil. Potentially working against them for this fixture is that Southampton faced Championship side Derby in an FA Cup replay on Wednesday night. Southampton have suffered back-to-back home defeats in the Premier League, and they conceded five goals in total in those two games. In total this season they have produced two home clean sheets. 70% of Southampton’s league games in the Premier League this season have all gone over 2.5 goals. Of the 11 home goals that Southampton have managed put on the board this season, the majority of them, seven in total, have been scored in the first period of home games. Southampton have not managed to collect a clean sheet in any of their last five home games in the top flight and in fact, the Saints have conceded at least two goals in each of their last four home fixtures. There are only two sides currently who have worse home records in the division than Southampton at the moment and they are Newcastle and Huddersfield, two of the current bottom three. Southampton will kick off on the weekend just one point clear of the drop zone.

Southampton v Everton Head to Head

Everton took a 2-1 league home win over the Saints back in mid-August Southampton won this corresponding fixture last season through 4-1 Both teams have scored in four of the last ten meetings The Saints have won their last two at home against the Toffees in the EPL  
Key-Facts - Southampton v Everton
  • Southampton have the third worst home record in the season’s Premier league
  • The Saints have conceded a least two goals in each of their last four Premier league home fixtures
  • Everton have won just one of their last six Premier league away fixtures
 

Everton News and Form

Everton got themselves a much-needed win last weekend as they had to grind but eventually got a 2-0 win over Bournemouth at Goodison Park. The toffees really needed it too as it leaves them with a W2 D2 L4 for record in their last eight Premier League fixtures now. So they have been having their struggles recently. It hasn’t been a tremendous season out on the road for them in the top tier as they have only picked up two away wins all season (D3 L5). In their away games Everton have put 13 goals on the board but they have conceded 15. It is worth taking into consideration that of the 13 goals that they have scored away from home this season, five of those came in their recent big victory at Burnley. The Toffees have suffered three defeats in their last four away games the exception being that win at Turf Moor against Burnley. In their last six league games away from Goodison Park Everton have only collected the one victory. Further problems is that they have only managed one away clean sheet all season and 60% of their away fixtures this term have gone over 2.5 goals. Everton have been level of the half-time break in seven of their away games. Five of those seven half-time draw is were 0-0 scorelines. The Toffees have shipped two-thirds of their away goals in the second period of away fixtures and each of their last three games, home and away combined, have ended under 2.5 goals.

Southampton v Everton Tips & Odds

Under 2.5 goals at 10/11 Both teams not to score at 11/10 * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 14th, 2019 at 9:40 p.m.)  

Southampton v Everton Predictions

Draw: Avoiding defeat is a win for Southampton at the moment in what is a tight relegation battle. They may have enough to shut down an Everton side who have lost their way a little bit this season. Draw.

Manchester United v Brighton Predictions & Betting Odds – 19th January 2019

Manchester United
Manchester United v Brighton Betting Tips - Premier League, 19th January 3.00pm The Red Devils collected a superb 1-0 away win at Tottenham last weekend to keep their high momentum going. That’s five straight Premier League wins now and that was a big test passed by them at Spurs. Brighton come to Old Trafford for a visit looking to respond to a narrow 1-0 home defeat against Liverpool last weekend. Read our predictions for Manchester United v Brighton.

Manchester United News and Form

Manchester United picked up a significant 1-0 away victory at Tottenham last weekend at Wembley. That pretty much summed up how much more of confident side they are since Jose Mourinho left. The victory over Tottenham sees Manchester United on a five-match winning streak in the Premier League and in some pretty hot form now. Overall this season at Old Trafford in the top flight, Manchester United have taken a W6 D3 L1 record. They are moving along in some good form as well at home having won their last three league fixtures there. The Red Devils have not been beaten in any of their last eight league fixtures actually. In each of their last four Premier League games at Old Trafford, Manchester United have scored at least two goals per game. 80% of league fixtures at Old Trafford have ended over 2.5 goals. Given how negative they have played this season for the most part and given the brilliance of their goalkeeper David de Gea United, the Red Devils have only have one home clean sheet all season. The goals that they have given up on home soil 69% of them have been after the half-time break. Manchester United have actually been leading at the half-time break in six of their 10 home games (D3 L1). Manchester United are currently on a nine-match scoring streak in the Premier League, home and away combined. They have produced at least two goals in all but one of their last five Premier League fixtures. United start the weekend trying to close a six-point gap to fourth place. Will they be able to keep their hot hand of form going?

Manchester United v Brighton Head to Head

The Seagulls pulled off a shock 3-2 home win over United in August That is back to back league wins Brighton have earned over the Red Devils United have won their last five home games against the Seagulls to nil (all competitions) Both teams have scored in just two of the last eight meetings  
Key-Facts - Manchester United v Brighton
  • Manchester United have just one home clean sheet in the Premier league this season
  • The Red Devils though are unbeaten in their last eight league games at Old Trafford
  • The Seagulls have lost four of their last six away games in the top flight
 

Brighton News and Form

Brighton lost their game against Liverpool last weekend on the south coast 1-0. To their credit though the goal against them was from the penalty spot and not from open play. So that is a good nod towards their defensive discipline. The lloss did snap a three-match undefeated streak that they were ticking along on. Overall away from home this season in the top flight, Brighton have posted a W2 D2 L7 record. Away from home they have only managed 9 goals this season and have conceded double that amount. Brighton haven’t had a great season away from home to be fair and the Seagulls have actually lost four of their last six away games in the Premier League (W1 D1). They haven’t taken a clean sheet in any of their last six away fixtures and overall this season they have managed just one clean sheet on their travels. Their half time record in away games this season is W1 D4 L6. Each of the six losses in that halftime sequence were 1-0 score lines so that is a bit of a trend that may be worth looking at for this fixture. Brighton have the fourth worst away record this season in the Premier League.

Manchester United v Brighton Tips & Odds

Man Utd to win to nil at 20/21 Under 2.5 goals at 6/5 * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 14th, 2019 at 9:40 p.m.)

Manchester United v Brighton Predictions

Manchester United to win: The Red Devils should be able to get maximum points out of this one. They don’t look as if complacency is going to creep in at all. Brighton haven’t had a good season on the road and therefore it is a Manchester United to win to nil option.

Liverpool v Crystal Palace Predictions & Betting Odds – 19th January 2019

Liverpool
Liverpool v Crystal Palace Betting Tips - Premier League, 19th January 3.00pm Liverpool edged Brighton at the Amex last weekend which maintained their four-point lead at top of the Premier League tree over Manchester City. It was another good showing from them, proving they can win ugly as well as flamboyantly. It’s home soil advantage for them this weekend as they host the struggling Eagles. Read our predictions for Liverpool v Crystal Palace.

Liverpool News and Form

There was yet another Premier League win for Liverpool last weekend as they picked up a 1-0 victory at Brighton. They had to work hard for the three points with the single goal in the game coming from a converted penalty kick from Mo Salah. That was an important three points too as it was a response to them having lost against Manchester City in their previous game. The loss against City is their only defeat in the top flight this season. Liverpool have won 10 of their last 11 Premier League games now. At Anfield this season in the top flight Liverpool are W9 D1 in ten games. In their 10 home games this season they have been scoring freely as well having tallied 27 goals at Anfield. As good as that is, it cannot outshine their defence which has conceded just three goals. 50% of their fixtures at Anfield this season have gone over 2.5 goals. Liverpool have scored at least three goals in each of their last three Premier League home fixtures. So if you put this all together does look as if they are going to be too strong for Crystal Palace on the weekend. Liverpool have scored in both halves of 60% of their Premier League home games this season. They have scored in each of their last 14 league games home and away combined. At home this season they have been leading at the halftime break in seven of their league games (D3). The only side in the division who have picked up more home points this season than Liverpool is Manchester City. However, Liverpool come out on top over them having the best defensive record in the top flight currently.

Liverpool v Crystal Palace Head to Head

The Reds earned a 2-0 away win at Palace earlier this season That was their third straight Premier League win over the Eagles Palace have only one of their last six games against Liverpool (L5) Liverpool have lost three of their last four home games against Palace (W1)
Key-Facts - Liverpool v Crystal Palace
  • Liverpool have conceded just three goals in 10 home fixtures this season in the Premier League
  • Liverpool have averaged over 2.5 goals, home fixture this season
  • Crystal Palace have scored at least two goals in each of their last three Premier league away fixtures now
 

Crystal Palace News and Form

The Eagles couldn’t make the most of home advantage last weekend as they suffered a 2-1 defeat against the visiting Watford. Palace have done better out on the road this season than they have done at Selhurst Park. They have won four away games this season compared to just two on home soil.

Palace have been involved in some high-scoring games away from home as 36% of their road fixtures this season in the top flight have ended over 3.5 goals. Away from home, the second period of matches has produced the most goals in Palace's away fixtures.

Leicester News and Form

There was a surprise result for Leicester last weekend as they tumbled to a 2-1 loss at the King Power against Southampton. That was a bit of a blow for them really in a game which they would have expected to have won. But they have taken a win in three of their last five Premier League games (L2). Out on their top-flight travels this season, Leicester are W5 D2 L4 and only 36% of Leicester’s away games this season have made it over 2.5 goals. Leicester have scored 13 and have conceded 13 goals on their travels so it is all evens with them. They have banked back to back away clean sheets though having taken 1-0 wins at Chelsea and then at Everton. So that’s a fantastic return away from home lately for Leicester. Leicester have lost just one of their last six away games in the top flight, winning three of those six. Each of their last six away games have ended under 2.5 goals so again, this does have the look of being a low scoring game. Just once away from home this season have Leicester been leading at the halftime break. Of the away goals that they have produced 85% of them have been after the halftime break. Only the current top five in the league have better away records than Leicester so they can be pretty proud of that. Also, the Foxes currently boast the fifth best defensive record in the Premier League.

Wolves v Leicester Predictions

Wolves to win: There looks to be a decent chance of a home win turning up in this one. Leicester just are a little too unreliable to back with a great deal of confidence. So the value does appear to be on the home side in this one.
