Bournemouth v Southampton Predictions & Betting Odds – 20th October 2018

Bournemouth
Bournemouth v Southampton Betting Tips - Premier League, 20th October 3.00pm It is a south coast derby on the weekend and the two clubs have had contrasting seasons so far. The Cherries return to action holding down sixth place in the top flight and could well make a move up with three points here. Southampton are once again in a mess at the wrong end of the table and have taken just one point from their last four games. Read our predictions for Bournemouth v Southampton.

Bournemouth News and Form

Bournemouth have been going so well and have posted a W5 D1 L2 record so far. That has left them in sixth place in the table. There is a decent chance of them getting three points out of this as well as they face a Saints side who are badly out of form. Bournemouth are looking for their third straight win and even though they haven’t been great defensively, they are appealing at 11/4 to win to nil* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 5:41 pm). They have remained undefeated at home in a W3 D1 record. The Cherries have produced at least two goals in all four home games and in Bournemouth v Southampton predictions a 2-0 correct score for the Cherries is a great proposition at 10/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm). Four of the ten home goals that Bournemouth have scored this season have been in the final fifteen minutes of matches. They have not conceded a home goal in the first half of any game (having scored five) so add all that up then a Bournemouth half time win appeals greatly for this fixture and could push it onto a Bournemouth/Bournemouth half time/full option if you fancied.

Southampton News and Form

Southampton have been struggling this season and boss Mark Hughes is coming under increasing pressure. At 6/1 in the next manager to go market, he is well worth considering* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm. It is not happening for them and they are on a three-match losing streak at the moment. They did not come up with a single goal in any of those defeats either. Both teams not to score is at 11/10 odds for Bournemouth v Southampton predictions* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm). Southampton have posted a W1 L3 record this season away from home. They have lost their last two without getting on the scoresheet which was against Liverpool and then Wolves. Southampton have conceded at least two goals in each of their three away defeats this season. Even though Southampton did have the measure of Bournemouth last season in the top flight, there looks to be a much bigger gap between them the other way around. The Saints have produced only six goals this season, the joint third-lowest tally in the top flight so far.

Bournemouth v Southampton Head to Head

This will be just the seventh Premier League game between the two sides. Southampton got four points from last season’s meetings and are well up in the head to head from those six games. The Saints have a W3 D2 L1 against the Cherries in them. Bournemouth are W1 D1 L1 in their three home games against Southampton. Four of the last six Premier League meetings have failed to make it over 2.5 goals.

Bournemouth v Southampton Predictions

Bournemouth to win: The Cherries have the clear edge in this one. They have scored ten goals more than the Saints have done this season. It’s unlikely that the Saints are going to turn up and play an open, positive game. The Cherries have more than enough to pick apart their south coast rivals. Home win.

Newcastle v Brighton Predictions & Betting Odds – 20th October 2018

Newcastle
Newcastle v Brighton Betting Tips - Premier League, 20th October 3.00pm Newcastle start an important period of their season. Their tough run of fixtures is now behind them and they have to start looking forward to better things. Can they make it count on home soil against the Seagulls? Brighton stopped along winless streak just before the international break, but have little away from behind them. Read our predictions for Newcastle v Brighton.

Newcastle v Brighton Betting Odds*

Newcastle News and Form

Newcastle position in the top flight looks pretty precarious. But an extremely difficult fixture list hasn't helped them. They have already faced five of the big six in the league in their eight games so far. They are still on the search for their first league victory of the season, with them having only two points on the board. Those were earned in away draws, so it has been empty-handed returns from them at St James’ Park this season. Newcastle though have scored in three of their four home games, exactly one goal in each of those (which were all 2-1 losses). All but one of their league defeats this season have been by a one-goal margin. They were 2-0 up at halftime at Manchester United before the international break, but still ended up losing 3-2. In each of their home games this term Newcastle have conceded at least two goals. But this game against Brighton starts a run of much easier-looking fixtures for them. This is where they have a chance to start turning things around. A Newcastle 1-0 correct score is at 6/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:01 pm). Each of their three games this season not against the big six sides have all ended under 2.5 goals so that is the way to go for Newcastle v Brighton predictions.

Brighton News and Form

Brighton have a chance to pull nine points clear of Newcastle with a win in this one. That would be pretty huge for them. Brighton have achieved two victories in the top flight this season, part of a W2 D2 L4 record that they have returned so far. They got their second win of the season with a 1-0 home win over West Ham just before the international break. Both of their league wins this term happened at home by a one-goal margin. So while things have been decent enough from them down at the Amex, their away form isn’t there. They have taken one point from four away games this season, failing to score in three of those four games on the road. Newcastle to win to nil is at 12/5 odds and may be worth a flutter* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:01 pm). Brighton have faced two of the sides currently sat in the bottom five this season and collected a 2-2 draw in both of them (against Southampton and Fulham).

Newcastle v Brighton Head to Head

Things were tight between the two clubs in last season’s Premier League meetings. There was a 0- 0 draw in this corresponding fixture after Brighton had collected three points in a 1-0 home win over the Magpies. Those are the only two previous Premier League meetings. Newcastle are W2 D1 L1 in their last four league matches against Brighton now and have not conceded in their last two at home against the Seagulls.

Newcastle v Brighton Predictions

Newcastle to win: We feel this is where the Magpies should be able to make it count. They have no form behind them, but then the Seagulls have been struggling on the road. There could be a big three points heading the way of the Magpies.

Chelsea v Manchester United Predictions & Betting Odds – 20th October 2018

Chelsea
Chelsea v Manchester United Betting Tips - Premier League, 20th October 12.30pm What a game this could be with Jose Mourinho taking his struggling Manchester United to Stamford Bridge. He needs a big win and the Red Devils trail Chelsea by seven points heading into the match. Chelsea have remained undefeated so far in the top flight this season and will be looking for points to move, even temporarily to the top of the table. Read our predictions for Chelsea v Manchester United.

Chelsea News and Form

Chelsea will be hoping to extend their great home form against Manchester United in the Premier League. They are the favourites for this fixture as they will be putting their undefeated form for the season on the line in this one. The Blues are at W6 D2 this season and just before the international break, they collected a 3-0 win at Southampton. The star of the show again for them was Eden Hazard who is the current top scorer in the division and while he is running hot, he is worth backing at 11/8 in the anytime goalscorer market* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm). Chelsea would move ten points clear of United with a win. At Stamford Bridge in the top flight, Chelsea have gone W3 D1 with their winning streak there ended in a 1-1 tie with Liverpool in their last home fixture. The Blues have been transformed into a positive attacking side this season and they have scored at least two goals in each of their victories in the top flight this season. Chelsea have a clean sheet in half of their league games this season and with that in mind, a Chelsea 1-0 correct score option is appealing at 13/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm) but you could, of course, cover everything with a Chelsea to win to nil option.

Manchester United News and Form

It has been a season of struggles for the Red Devils who are now just at W4 D1 L3 for the season. Just before the international break, they found themselves 2-0 down at half-time at Old Trafford against Newcastle. They did manage to fight back for a win but still, their defensive problems were once again exposed. Manchester United did suffer a loss in their last away game which was away at West Ham. They are W2 L2 for the season on the road. Even though United have scored exactly two goals in three of their four away games, we are going to side with this one going under 2.5 goals at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm). Surprisingly Manchester United have only one clean sheet to their name this season. They have big issues at centre-half which keeps plugging them. Only Huddersfield, Fulham and Cardiff have conceded more goals than United have done this season. Manchester United have conceded an average of 1.75 goals per game. They have scored 71% and have conceded 71% of their away goals in the first half of matches. Romelu Lukaku is a 5/2 anytime goalscorer option for them* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm); he is looking to snap a three-match scoreless streak of form. Manchester United are seven points worse off at the moment than they were at this stage of last season’s campaign.

Chelsea v Manchester United Head to Head

Manchester United and Chelsea traded home wins in the Premier League last season. Chelsea did win the FA Cup final over the Red Devils. Interestingly none of the last ten Premier League meetings have produced an away win. The Blues hold a strong W4 D1 record at home in their last five against United in the league, each of their last three wins with a clean sheet. Both teams have scored in just one of the last six meetings in all competitions. Just two of the last ten in all competitions have made it above the 2.5 goal line.

Chelsea v Manchester United Predictions

Chelsea to win: Looking at the two sides, Chelsea look far more the stable, the more committed and upbeat of them. That’s huge credit to the new boss and with their positive approach, they could ease rattle an already fragile Red Devils side. Home win.

Wolves v Watford Predictions & Betting Odds – 20th October 2018

Watford
Wolves v Watford Betting Tips - Premier League, 20th October 3.00pm Wolves will be defending a long unbeaten streak of form in the top flight and they return to action this weekend sat in seventh place in the table. It has been fantastic stuff from the newly promoted side. Now they get the chance at more points as they welcome Watford, whose bright start is well behind them. Read our predictions for Wolves v Watford.

Wolves v Watford Betting Odds*

Wolves 8/11 Draw 11/4 Watford 7/2 * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 15th, 2018 at 7:52 p.m.) [bbutton bookmaker="bet365"] [toc heading_levels="2"]

Wolves News and Form

Wolves have surprised a lot of people over just how strong of a start that they have made to life in the Premier League. They have adapted well and they are W4 D3 L1 for the season. They head back into action being undefeated in six and they are W4 D1 in their last five alone. The point in that sequence coming in a great performance at Old Trafford against Manchester United. They have taken a clean sheet in each of their four wins this season so Wolves to win to nil is not an unrealistic proposition at 7/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:29 pm). None of their last seven fixtures in the Premier League have made it over 2.5 goals. That is partly down to their excellent control of games and strong defensive performances. Three of the last four wins that Wolves have come up with have been by a 1-0 scoreline. So riding the Wolves 1-0 trend option in the correct score market is at 6/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:29 pm) looks a sound proposition. Five of the six league goals that they have come up with at Molineux this season have all been after the half time break.

Watford News and Form

Watford won their opening four games of the season, but their form has taken a nosedive. They have earned one point from their last four fixtures, failing to score in their last two. Just before the international break, they took a hammering at home in a 4-0 reverse against Bournemouth. So the pressure is mounting and they are W1 D1 L1 so far from their three road games, the last two ending under 2.5 goals. Both teams not to score is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:29 pm) as the likelihood is that this will be a tight fight. Watford have not picked up a clean sheet since their opening game of the season. They have shipped ten goals in their last four league games, and with goals drying up for them (two in four) their attack isn't covering up their defensive frailties. The Hornets have shipped three of their four away goals in the second half of matches this season.

Wolves v Watford Head to Head

Wolves and Watford will be squaring off for the first time since the 2014/15 Championship season. Wolves took an away win and a home 2-2 draw that season against Watford. Wolves are undefeated in their last three home games against Watford, winning one of those. Both teams have scored in all but one of the last six meetings and four of those six have made it over 2.5 goals.

Wolves v Watford Predictions

Wolves to win: There’s no reason that we can see as to not back the home side to take the victory in the game. They have looked positive and ambitious and with Watford falling out of form, it’s a good chance to back the home side.

Everton v Crystal Palace Predictions & Betting Odds – 21st October 2018

Everton
Everton v Crystal Palace Betting Tips - Premier League, 21st October 4.00pm Everton managed for the first time this season, to win back to back games in the Premier League just before the international break. Can they make it three in a row as they return to action on Sunday at home against Palace? The Eagles have failed to get off the ground this season as they have found the going tough in producing goals. Read our predictions for Everton v Crystal Palace.

Everton News and Form

Everton have back to back wins under their belt for the first time this season, having beaten Fulham and Leicester before the international break. It’s a return to Goodison Park this weekend where the Toffees are W2 D1 L1 for the season. The only loss they suffered at home was against West Ham, but they responded with a big win over Fulham in their subsequent home fixture. The Toffees have produced at least two goals in five of their eight league games now, so things are starting to come together. Gylfi Sigurdsson has played a large part in their output with three goals in his last two games. Richarlison was also back on the scoresheet last time out in their win at Leicester. Everton have conceded in their last five home games against the Eagles in the top flight, but we are going against that and backing both teams NOT to score at 19/20 odds* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018) and while that bucks the trend, Palace look poor at the moment. Everton have made progress this season as they are four points better off than they were after eight games of their last campaign. Three of Everton’s four home games this season have ended over 2.5 goals, but again we are bucking that trend too and going under the goal line.

Crystal Palace News and Form

It has been a poor return from Palace again this season and the big difference is that Wilfried Zaha isn’t scoring as well as he was last term. Palace have five defeats in their last seven league games, with only the four points collected in that sequence. Both wins that they have recorded this season were clean-sheet away wins against Huddersfield and Fulham, two of the current bottom four in the league. Palace have failed to score in four of their eight games this season. Everton to win to nil is at 21/10 odds* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018). The Eagles have produced only five goals this season, only Huddersfield and Cardiff having managed fewer. Zaha does have three of Palace’s five goals but has failed to net in any of their last three. In that sequence, Palace have come up with one goal. Of the goals which Crystal Palace have conceded this season away from Selhurst Park, 75% of them have been shipped in the second half of matches. Only Newcastle and Cardiff have lost more Premier League matches (6) than Palace have done this season (5). The last time that Palace bagged a clean sheet at Goodison Park was in 1992.

Everton v Crystal Palace Head to Head

Everton took a home win and an away draw against Crystal Palace last season in the top flight. That moved them on to a seven-match undefeated streak of form against the Eagles in the top flight with a W3 D4 record. Everton have picked up a W1 D2 record in their last three Premier League home games against the Eagles. Four of the last six have ended under 2.5 goals.

Everton v Crystal Palace Predictions

Everton to win: There should be a good chance for the Toffees to put a solid three points on the road in this one. Crystal Palace are just looking so lightweight and out of touch going forward at the moment. Everton to win to nil.

Arsenal v Leicester Predictions & Betting Odds – 22nd October 2018

Arsenal
Arsenal v Leicester Betting Tips - Premier League, 22nd October 8.00pm Will Arsenal be able to make it seven straight wins in the top flight as they return to action after the international break? They get an extra rest too with this being a Monday night fixture. Leicester haven’t had a bad season at all and they are likely to play their part in what could be a good open game. Read our predictions for Arsenal v Leicester.

Arsenal News and Form

There has been no stopping Arsenal who are on a six-match winning streak in the Premier League. So things are going smoothly for them and the Gunners have scored at least two goals in each of their last seven games played. They banked a big 5-1 away win at Fulham in their last match before the international break. Being so fluent in front of goal, it is likely that they are going to carve out plenty of opportunities here and therefore over 2.5 goals looks a good proposition at 4/9 odds* (betting odds taken on October 18th, 2018 at 4:01 pm). All but three of their league games this season have made it over the line. At home, they are on a three-match winning streak, each of those victories coming by a two-goal margin which is a trend to consider. Arsenal can be supported at 7/2 to win by that margin in this fixture* (betting odds taken on October 18th, 2018 at 4:01 pm). Another trend with the Gunners seen them having been drawing at halftime and winning at full time in each of their last six games. There are doubts over Danny Welbeck and Aaron Ramsey, while Pierre Emerick Aubameyang could return to the starting eleven.

Leicester News and Form

You never quite know what you are going to get out of Leicester as they have produced a W4 L4 record so far this season. In their final match before the international break, they lost 2-1 at home against Everton. Away from home, the Foxes have posted a mixed W2 L2 record. They have had no trouble scoring this season, as they have found the back of the net all of their matches, so both teams to score at 4/7 odds* (betting odds taken on October 18th, 2018 at 4:01 pm) is a solid proposition. Jamie Vardy has two goals in his last three games for the Foxes and is pretty consistent and reliable as a goalscorer option. On their travels, Leicester have produced seven goals in their four games, with three of those four fixtures ending over 2.5 goals. They have two clean sheets under their belt this season, one of them on the road. They have produced at least two goals in each of their last three road games in the top flight and 86% of their away goals have happened in the second half of matches. The Foxes will be missing Wes Morgan through suspension while there Demarai Gray and Matty James will also be out on the sidelines.

Arsenal v Leicester Head to Head

There was a home win for each in last season’s meetings, which produced a total of eleven goals in two thrilling fixtures. Arsenal took a 4-3 success over the Foxes at the Emirates and that leaves them on a seven-match winning streak on home soil against them. So they have a perfect Premier League home record against the Foxes. Arsenal have won six of the last seven Premier League meetings home and away games the Foxes (D1).

Arsenal v Leicester Predictions

Arsenal to win: Both teams have been reliable in front of goal this season, but Arsenal look to have the competitive edge, especially on home soil. They are pretty solid value for a good three points and an Arsenal to win to nil & both teams to score option appeals.

West Ham v Tottenham Predictions & Betting Odds – 20th October 2018

West Ham
West Ham v Tottenham Betting Tips - Premier League, 20th October 3.00pm There is an interesting London derby battle coming up on the weekend as Spurs will be looking to extend their league winning form as they head out to face West Ham. The Lilywhites have had some tight battles with the Hammers recently. West Ham would give themselves a massive lift if they could take three points out of this one. Read our predictions for West Ham v Tottenham.

West Ham v Tottenham Betting Odds*

West Ham News and Form

West Ham were on a nice little upturn in form with seven points in three games before they lost at Brighton just before the international break. That was after losing their opening four games of the season. Overall they are W1 D1 L2 at home this season and are unbeaten in their last two at home, having held Chelsea to a draw and beaten Manchester United. So they have had good results against top sides at home this term. Actually each of West Ham’s home games this season (including this one) have been against sides currently in the top half of the table. They have only produced the one clean sheet this season (home and away) so they are a defensive risk. For our West Ham v Tottenham predictions we have to have a look at both teams to score at 8/13 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:14 pm). There have been plenty of goals in recent games between these two. Five of West Ham’s eight league games this season have made it above the goal line as well. The Hammers have won two of their last three at home against Spurs and would get a huge lift with another this weekend.

Tottenham News and Form

Tottenham are on a three-match winning streak at the moment. Those were games though that they were expected to win as they faced Brighton, Huddersfield and Cardiff. This should be a bit of a sterner test for them in this London derby. In terms of momentum, they won’t want to slip up here as they have to face Manchester City in their following game. They hold a W4 L1 record in their five away games this season which is great, the only blip was a 2-1 loss at Watford at the start of September. Over 2.5 goals is at 4/6 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:14 pm). That is a decent proposition for West Ham v Tottenham predictions as Spurs have scored at least two goals in all but one of their away games this season. The Lilywhites have scored in all of their league outings this season, while 75% of Tottenham's league games this season have gone over 2.5 goals. Spurs have averaged exactly two goals per away game this season, taking a clean sheet in 40%. Harry Kane is the 5/2 first goalscorer favourite* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:14 pm).

West Ham v Tottenham Head to Head

Tottenham came out on top in last season’s meeting with the Hammers in the top flight, getting four points. There was a tight 3-2 away win for them followed by a home draw. Spurs are W2 D1 L1 in their last four Premier League meetings with the Hammers but they have lost two for their last three away trips to West Ham, both 1-0 losses. Five of the last eight games between them in all competitions have gone over 2.5 goals.

West Ham v Tottenham Predictions

Draw: The draw takes our fancy here after the Hammers have avoided defeat in recent home games against both Chelsea and Manchester United. Tottenham have done alright in their last couple of away games, but it’s a tough game to get themselves back together in after the international break.

Huddersfield v Liverpool Predictions & Betting Odds – 20th October 2018

Liverpool
Huddersfield v Liverpool Betting Tips - Premier League, 20th October 5.30pm Liverpool bubble burst just a little bit before the international break in back to back draws against Chelsea and Manchester City. They started to look a bit jaded, so will they be able to lift themselves? They head out on the road to face a Huddersfield side who are still looking for their first win of the season and all sorts of problems in the bottom three. Read our predictions for Huddersfield v Liverpool.

Huddersfield News and Form

Huddersfield are yet to win a league game this season. If their first were to happen on the weekend, that would be a shock, to say the least. The Terriers have just three points this season from three drawn matches and are in big trouble. They drew with Burnley just before the international break. Their home form has seen them collect only the one point from four games and punters are hardly going to trust them here. Their last home game saw them suffer a 2-0 loss against Tottenham. So that defeat against Spurs is a good indicator for this one. A Liverpool 2-0 correct score option is at 5/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm). Huddersfield are not only looking for their first home win of the season but also their first home goal. The option on both teams not to score has to have some value. Huddersfield have just looked extremely short in quality and they have come up with just four goals all term. They are the joint lowest scorers alongside bottom club Cardiff heading back into the weekend.

Liverpool News and Form

Liverpool drew their final two games before the international break and will be keen to break back into winning ways. They are W3 D1 away from Anfield this term in the top flight, their winning streak getting snapped in a 1-1 tie at Chelsea in their last road game. That game at Stamford Bridge was the first time that Liverpool had failed to score two goals in an away game. Liverpool to win to nil is at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm) and is a popular option for Huddersfield v Liverpool betting tips. They are still waiting for their prolific front three to click into gear this term. Mo Salah, for example, has only picked up the one goal in his last five Premier League fixture but the chances have been there. He just hasn’t been finishing them. Because they are facing a leaky defence on the weekend though, Salah is the 8/11 favourite in the anytime goalscorer market, but has just one away goal all season* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm). So it may well be worth looking deeper in the market. Liverpool have shipped only the three away goals this season, two of them in the second half of matches. The Reds have been ahead at half time in three of their four road games. A Liverpool/Liverpool half-time/ full-time bet is at 5/6 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm).

Huddersfield v Liverpool Head to Head

Liverpool had an easy time of things last season in the top flight against the Terriers. They went and produced a 3-0 win in both games against Huddersfield. Those were the first league meetings since the 1971/72 old division one season.

Huddersfield v Liverpool Predictions

Liverpool to win: Even though Liverpool looked a little bit off-key before the international break, we are still going to back the away win in Huddersfield v Liverpool predictions. They did struggle against Chelsea and Man City but otherwise have been reliable in scrapping out points, especially away from home. Liverpool to win & under 2.5 goals.

Manchester City v Burnley Betting Tips - Premier League, 20th October 3.00pm Manchester City remain undefeated for the season so far and they will be looking for a big three points on home soil as they return from the international break. They are heavy favourites to bank another three points as they face the Clarets. Burnley had just started to get a bit of momentum going after a tough start to the season, but are likely to have their hands full here. Read our predictions for Manchester City v Burnley.

Manchester City News and Form

Manchester City will be defending their 100% start to their home form this season on the weekend when they play host to Burnley. With four wins from four at the Etihad, things are shaping up well, the Citizens having netted thirteen goals in those four fixtures. Because this is a return after the international break, a comfortable Manchester City 2-0 correct score is at 13/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 6:33 pm). Manchester City have now won twenty of their last twenty-three (D2 L1) home games in the Premier League. Raheem Sterling should be in a great mood after breaking his long drought for England in Monday’s win over Spain. Sterling is at 10/11 in the anytime goalscorer market* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 6:33 pm). City have taken a clean sheet in each of their last four fixtures now in the Premier League so there will be favouritism on them banking one in this one. A Man City/Man City half-time/ full-time wager will also appeal. City haven’t conceded a second-half home goal this term.

Burnley News and Form

The Clarets got one point from their opening five league games, but were showing good signs of recovery before the international break with a W2 D1 record. That was a massive lift for them and they picked up seven goals in that burst of games. They are going into two testing fixtures now as they face Chelse straight after this duel with the Citizens. Because the Clarets may not see too much of the ball both teams NOT to score is at 1/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 6:33 pm). Burnley are W1 D1 L2 on their travels this season, conceding six goals and scoring in half of them. They have only picked up the two clean sheets this season home and away combined. Burnley have been level at 0-0 at half time in three of their four away games this season but we prefer the option of Manchester City winning at half time. Overall, Manchester City to win to nil is at 8/15 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 6:33 pm).

Manchester City v Burnley Head to Head

There was a big 3-0 home win for City over Burnley last season in the league and they took a three-goal winning margin over them at the Etihad in the FA Cup too. The Citizens are W2 D2 in their four previous Premier League home games against Burnley, winning the last two. From the previous eight Premier League meetings between the two clubs, Manchester City are W4 D3 L1 against Burnley.

Manchester City v Burnley Predictions

Manchester City to win: There’s no reason to not expect a home win to crop up in this one. The Citizens have such strong form going on home soil that it should be three points heading their way. Manchester City to win to nil.

Premier League Betting
Cardiff v Fulham Betting Tips - Premier League, 20th October 3.00pm This will be a big game down at the foot of the table between two sides stuck in the bottom four. Cardiff are at the very bottom but a win would at least see them pull level with the Cottagers.

Cardiff News and Form

Cardiff are struggling to keep pace with the pack in the top flight this season. They return to action on a five-match losing streak. They have posted a D2 L6 record in the Premier League campaign, conceding at least two goals in each of those six defeats. They have scored in just three of their eight fixtures as well, so nothing is working for them. They lost each of the three games in which they did manage to score. Can they get something going against a side who are struggling for form? For Cardiff v Fulham predictions, both teams not to score in this one is at 11/10 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 6:18 pm). Cardiff are D1 L3 at home this season, having lost three in a row there. They have conceded ten goals in their last three home games. A defeat in this one would see the Cottagers move six points clear of them, so the Bluebirds really need to produce something in this fixture or their already dire situation is going to be looking a lot worse.

Fulham News and Form

Fulham have that three-point advantage then over the Bluebirds. Fulham have achieved a victory this season, which was back at the end of August. They are on a five-match winless streak though now with a D2 L3 record. The issue with Fulham is their defence which has been wide open. That’s a huge problem they need to fix because otherwise, their style of play is positive. They have shipped 21 goals in eight games, the worst record in the top flight but some distance. The Cottagers have conceded at least two goals in all but one of their league outings this season. But the question is, will their defence get exposed by a Cardiff's lightweight attack? Under 2.5 goals is the appealing option at even money* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 6:18 pm). Avoiding defeat could well be the order of the day in this one and it could, therefore, be cagey. Fulham have taken one point from four road games this season failing to score in their last two which were at Man City and Everton.

Cardiff v Fulham Head to Head

Fulham and Cardiff were in the Championship last season together and the Cottagers took four points from the meetings. They won 4-2 down in South Wales. The Cottagers are undefeated in their last seven games against Cardiff in all competitions with a W3 D4 record on the board. Five of the last six meetings have produced at least three goals There have been thirteen goals in the last three clashes in Wales.

Cardiff v Fulham Predictions

Fulham to win: The Cottagers may be a bit of value to go and get themselves an away win. They are facing a very limited Cardiff side. These two have very contrasting styles, with Cardiff being direct and Fulham playing open football. We are going to back the creativity of the visitors to find a way. Away win.
