Leicester v West Brom Predictions & Betting Odds – 16th October 2017

Leicester
Leicester v West Brom Betting Preview - Premier League 16th October 8.00pm Leicester have had a difficult season so far and there is some pressure on boss Craig Shakespeare already. They have had to ride out a tough fixture list without question, but they have also had a couple of misfires in easier games this season, such as their 0-0 draw at Bournemouth before the international break. They badly need a win. West Brom are without a win in any of their last five league games but have produced better performances at least in their last two outings.

Leicester v West Brom Betting Tips

This is the time for Leicester to dig deep and come up with some form. So far they have only managed one league win this season and that was back in their first home game of the season, beating Brighton 2-0. Since then they are on a five match winless streak (D2 L3) and the three defeats in that sequence were against Man Utd, Chelsea and Liverpool, but it’s their misfires out on the road in draws against Huddersfield and Bournemouth which will raise the bigger red flags about them. They are heading into an easier stretch of matches now and they have to start making things count. Leicester's last two Premier League games at the King Power have seen more than two goals in each and over 2.5 goals at bet365 returns a price of 11/10.

Last Six Premier League Head to Head

West Brom 0 - 1 Leicester Leicester 1 - 2 West Brom Leicester 1 - 2 West Brom West Brom 2 - 3 Leicester West Brom 2 - 3 Leicester Leicester 0 - 1 West Brom Jamie Vardy and Shinji Okazaki have had productive seasons for the Foxes in front of goal and they are 5/4 and 15/8 respectively in the bet365 anytime goalscorer market. There has been no problem with Leicester's scoring output really this season at all and they have returned three goals more than the Baggies have managed this season. Leicester's nine goal haul makes them the joint top scorers in the bottom half of the table. So that should go a long way to helping them collect maximum points. Leicester to win to nil at bet365 is trading at a price of 9/4 and up in the correct score market, the shortest priced option on the board is a 1-1 draw at 11/2 followed closely by a Leicester 1-0 victory at 13/2. Last season in the top flight, Leicester and West Brom exchanged away wins.

Current League Form (most recent last)

Leicester WLLDWD West Brom WDL WDL West Brom opened in somehwhat impressive fashion as they recorded back to back 1-0 victories over Bournemouth and Burnley. But that positive start quickly dissipated as Albion have now failed to win any of their last five games, picking up just the three points. But those points came from three drawn home matches and they are on a two match losing streak out on the road, scoring just the one goal in the process. West Brom just don't have a tremendous amount of attacking power in them really and aren’t going to return a whole load of goals across the course of the season. Before the international break, they played out a 2-2 draw with the in-from Watford at the Hawthorns. WBA did put in a decent performance in that in their 2-0 loss against Arsenal prior to that, they played well but just couldn’t take their chances in front of goal. Jay Rodriguez is a 4/2 anytime goalscorer option for them with Salomon Rondon at 13/5.

Top Tip:

Home win for even money There have been just the six previous Premier League games contested between Leicester and West Brom. From that sequence of games, the Baggies are slightly behind with a W2 D1 L3 record against the Foxes. However though they do have some good form going at the King Power as the Baggies have gone W1 D1 in their three previous visits there in the Premier League, so have that behind them. Both teams to score at bet365 in the fixture returns a price of 10/11 and there is a trend there as both teams have scored in four of the last five league meetings. West Brom are four points ahead of Leicester going into the weekend, sitting in the tenth spot. Because right now they are not in winning form, a point away from home may not be a bad target for them in this one.

Leicester v West Brom Betting Odds

Leicester even money, Draw 23/10, West Brom 14/5.

Leicester v West Brom Predictions

Leicester to win: The Foxes are some value in this one because West Brom won’t threaten their defence too much. That should allow the home side to push on and collect three points. They do carry the more threatening attack of the two sides without question. The pressure is on the Foxes in this one and they can deliver.

Brighton v Everton Predictions & Betting Odds – 15th October 2017

Brighton
Brighton v Everton Betting Preview - Premier League 15th October 1.30pm What a battle on the south coast this should be. Brighton and Everton are stuck on seven points for the season and that leaves them both just two points away from the drop zone heading into the weekend. So the pressure will be on both to collect something out of this game and more so on Everton who were expected to be doing so much better this term than they actually are. Can the Seagulls swoop and collect a value able home three points for themselves?

Brighton v Everton Betting Tips

There would appear to be a good opportunity for points in front of Brighton in this one. The Seagulls have done well on home soil in the top flight with a W2 L1 record and the defeat in that sequence happened against Manchester City in their opening fixture of the season. So even though they are finding the going tough out on the road, they have the home from behind them heading into this one, winning the last two back to back. Six of Brighton’s seven games this season have seen two goals or less and under 2.5 goals at bet365 returns a price of 4/7 which has to scream appeal. You have to expect this to be a low scoring game as Brighton don't have a great offensive threat and Everton are well out of scoring touch this season, or at least they have been. So expect a tight affair and both teams NOT to score is a quote of 3/4.

Last Six Head to Head

Brighton 1 - 2 Everton Everton 2 - 2 Brighton Brighton 3 - 1 Everton Everton 1 - 1 Brighton Everton 4 - 3 Brighton Brighton 1 - 3 Everton So can the Seagulls extend their home form? Glenn Murray is a 9/4 anytime goalscorer option for them. Unfortunately, Tomer Hemed who had scored in his last two Premier League home fixtures is currently in the middle of a three match ban for violent conduct against Newcastle in their last home fixture back on September 24th. In the bet365 correct score market, the 1-1 draw is the shortest priced option at 11/2 and a Brighton 1-0 will return a price of 7/1. You don't see Brighton winning by any bigger of a margin really and Brighton have failed to score in four of their seven league outings this term. These two haven’t seen each other since way back in the the 1982/83 season of the Old Division 1. The Seagulls have not been behind at half time in any of their home games so far so they can stick in there.

Current League Form (most recent last)

Brighton LDWLWL Everton DLLLWL One word can sum up Everton’s season: disappointing. They were delivered another blow just before the international break as they were toppled on home soil by Burnley. That was after just managing to break a five match winless streak by beating Bournemouth in the match before at Goodison. So boss Ronald Koeman is a man under immense pressure at the moment and if they fail to win this one, he will probably be pushed closer to the exit. A loss here may just break the camel’s back for Koeman's job security. The Toffees are not carrying way form this season to be relied up as they have gone D1 L2 away from home and have netted just the one goal on the road. Granted, they haven’t had the easiest sequence of away games, having been to Man City, Chelsea and Man Utd. Still, they should have been more competitive. They really looked as if they dropped the ball in not picking up a replacement for Romelu Lukaku in the summer. They have no-one going into this game against a newly promoted side, at odds-on in the anytime goalscorer market, with Wayne Rooney, Sandro Ramirez and Dominic Calvert-Lewin along with Oumar Niasse all 2/1 anytime goalscorer options. Just like Brighton, the Toffees have failed to score in four of their seven games this season and have totalled just the four league goals. Only the struggling Swansea and rock bottom Crystal Palace have returned fewer goals than Everton have this season. So that is why they are down near the relegation zone, level on points with Brighton. This really isn’t a game that they can afford to be losing. A half time draw at even money with bet365 looks extremely appealing.

Top Tip:

Brighton Draw No Bet at 11/10

Brighton v Everton Betting Odds

Everton 13/10, Draw 23/10, Brighton 21/10

Brighton v Everton Predictions

Brighton to win: The Seagulls may have a chance to pick up the three points in this one. They have a bit of home form and Everton are struggling out on the road this season and are lacking a genuine attacking threat. This should be a low scoring game, but a Brighton Draw No Bet at 11/10 has genuine appeal.

Southampton v Newcastle Predictions & Betting Odds – 15th October 2017

Southampton
Southampton v Newcastle Betting Preview - Premier League 15th October 4.00pm This should be a tight battle on the south coast between two sides who are decent enough at the back to keep the other at bay. Southampton have struggled as an attacking unit this season to get going and this doesn't look to be the easiest of games for them to pick up a win in. Newcastle have improved drastically after their tough start to the season and they have locked up well in the defensive department which suggests that they can travel south and hold their own in this one.

Southampton v Newcastle Betting Tips

Southampton are seriously lacking in the attacking department. Well, they have the players there but they aren’t getting the most out of them. Southampton are stuck on five league goals only for the season and three of them came in a home victory over West Ham back in mid-August. The Saints have only managed to net in four of their seven games this season and are going into this home game on the back of two consecutive defeats against Manchester United and Stoke. That equates to three losses in their last four games and the pressure is starting to mount on them. Can they turn things around? Southampton are W1 D1 L2 for the season on home soil and have lost their last two at St Mary's without having found the back of the net. Under 2.5 goals at bet365 returns a price of 7/10.

Last Six Premier League Head to Head

Southampton 3 - 1 Newcastle Newcastle 2 -2 Southampton Newcastle 1 -2 Southampton Southampton 4 - 0 Newcastle Southampton 4 - 0 Newcastle Newcastle 1-1 Southampton As a positive for Southampton, they are running in good head to head form against the Magpies. The Saints have remained unbeaten in their last six games in Premier League meetings against Newcastle with a W 4 D2 record and have won their last four on home soil against them and they have been convincing wins too. Southampton have netted at least two goals in each of their last four home wins over Newcastle along with collecting a clean sheet in three of those four wins. Southampton to win to nil at bet365 brings up a price of 2/1. Southampton are not a bad side at the back at all really and they did a pretty good job in limiting Man Utd to a 1-0 victory in their last home game. Manolo Gabbiadini is the 8/5 anytime goalscorer favourite in this fixture with Charlie Austin and Shane Long at 3/2.

Current League Form (most recent last)

Southampton WDLWLL Newcastle LWWWLD After suffering back to back losses to kickoff the season with, things were looking like a real struggle for Newcastle back in the top flight. But they responded well and have gone W3 D1 L1 in their last three fixtures, but most of the good work in that stretch of form happened at St James Park. They played out a home 1-1 draw with Liverpool for example just before the international break, but they lost their last away game which was at Brighton. Away from home, they have lost two of their three fixtures and they have scored just the one goal as well which was enough to give them a victory at Swansea. Their defence has looked pretty solid recently to their credit and have conceded only five goals in their last five. Both teams NOT to score at bet365 is a quote of 19/20.

Top Tip:

Newcastle Draw No Bet at 9/4 So this game on the south coast will probably be a tight match up. Can Newcastle find a winner in their ranks to collect what would be a very good three points away from home? Dwight Gayle is their 2/1 shortest priced option in the anytime goalscorer market with Mato Joselu at 11/5. To their credit, Newcastle haven’t been losing at half time in any of their league games this season and that lends value to a good half time draw at bet365 for a price of 5/4 which is very appealing. Newcastle have produced some good attacking stuff in patches this season but they will face a solid defensive unit here. However, while they don’t have head to head form against the Saints and they are underdogs for the game, Newcastle shouldn’t be that far out of contention at all and a bet365 Draw No Bet on the Magpies returns a price of 9/4.

Southampton v Newcastle Betting Odds

Southampton 5/6, Draw 13/5, Newcastle 16/5

Southampton v Newcastle Predictions

Draw: Settle for the draw here. You don’t expect many goals around in games involving Southampton and Newcastle defence has improved drastically recently, enough to suggest that they can go and collect a draw in this one to continue their good stretch of form. The 1-1 correct score has good appeal.

Swansea v Huddersfield Predictions & Betting Odds – 14th October 2017

Swansea
Swansea v Huddersfield Betting Preview - Premier League 14th October 3.00pm Both of these are lacking a winning touch in their current form and both are lacking a punch going forward. There probably isn’t going to be many goals flying in at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday in this one because both Swansea and Huddersfield are decent in defence while they both lack a scoring threat. Swansea are more despite tough as they sit in the relegation zone as the Premier League action returns, while the Terriers are four points above them. This may be a long war of attrition in South Wales on the weekend.

Swansea v Huddersfield Betting Tips

Swansea have not had too much to cheer about this season and they resume their league campaign stuck in the bottom three of the Premier League. Their home form has let them down badly as they have lost all three league games at the Liberty Stadium so far this term. In that sequence of matches, they have shipped seven and scored just the one. This is probably going to be a match where goals are going to be at a premium and under 2.5 at Ladbrokes fetches a price of 8/15. Five of Swansea's seven league outings this season have gone under that mark, so there is a good trend. Swansea have lost their last two league games, having picked up the only point only in their last four, which was actually a good point out at Tottenham after a wire to wire defensive display.

Last Six League Head to Head

Huddersfield 0 - 1 Swansea Swansea 0 - 1 Huddersfield Huddersfield 3 - 2 Swansea Swansea 1 - 2 Huddersfield Swansea 2 - 2 Huddersfield Huddersfield 3 - 1 Swansea Because of the lack of scoring threat that both teams possess, there could be a tempter on the game going under 1.5 goals which is a price of 13/8 at Ladbrokes. This is the first meeting between the two clubs since the 2007/08 League One season and the two of them traded 1-0 away wins this season. In the Ladbrokes correct score market, there is a price of 5/1 on a Swansea 1-0 and 8/1 on a Huddersfield 1-0 result. If either of them gets a win in this game it doesn’t look likely to be by any bigger of a margin than that. There have been just the three league goals from Swansea this season and up in the anytime goalscorer market, Jordan Ayew is the 13/5 favourite with Leroy Fer at 15/4. They would fall seven points behind the Terriers if they lose this and that would be a tough pill to swallow.

Current League Form (most recent last)

Swansea LWLDLL Huddersfield WDLDDL Huddersfield’s bright start to life in the Premier League feels like a really long time ago. After opening with wins over Crystal Palace and Newcastle, the Terriers have not taken one since and they are D3 L2 in their last five matches. Away from home in the top flight, they have posted a W1 D1 L1 record and they have failed to hit the back of the net in their last two, a defeat at West Ham and a draw at Burnley. You have a price of 4/6 at Ladbrokes on both teams NOT to score and there is a price of 21/10 on Swansea to win to nil and a 9/2 option on Huddersfield to win to nil as well. Huddersfield too, much like Swansea, have had their problems in front of goal after that positive start that they made. Huddersfield have one goal in their last five league games. Huddersfield have actually been at 0-0 at half time in five of their seven league games this season and 0-0 half time score at Ladbrokes is a great 13/10 price. There isn’t any current recent history to look back at, however, Huddersfield are unbeaten in their last three trips to Swansea, winning their last two there, both by a one goal margin. On paper, they have much better attacking options across the board than Swansea do really as they can carry a threat through the likes of Collin Quaner and Elias Kachunga who are around the 7/2 mark in the anytime goalscorer and they are backed up well by playmaker Aaron Mooy. However you look at it though, the injury to Steve Mounie has been a hammer blow of a loss. But they are strong and well organised at the back and have four clean sheets for the season.

Swansea v Huddersfield Betting Odds

Swansea 11/10, Draw 9/4, Huddersfield 13/5

Swansea v Huddersfield Predictions

Swansea to win: Both really should be targeting this as a winnable match. Swansea have struggled badly in the final third of the pitch but Huddersfield are without a goal in their last three. Two decent defences are on show, but the home side may be able to nick this and give themselves a boost.

Tottenham v Bournemouth Predictions & Betting Odds – 14th October 2017

Tottenham
Tottenham v Bournemouth Betting Preview - Premier League 14th October 3.00pm Spurs have been gathering pace in their title challenge recently with three wins in their last four and they will be expected to have a comfortable time of things at Wembley when they play host to Bournemouth. Spurs have produced well against the Cherries in recent league meetings and with Bournemouth struggling in the relegation zone with just the four points on the board for the season, this may be easy pickings for Tottenham. Spurs start the weekend five points behind the top two and need to keep up momentum.

Tottenham v Bournemouth Betting Tips

After a bit of a slow start to the season from Spurs who won just one of their opening three games, they have improved to a great W3 D1 record in their last four outings in the Premier League. Each of the wins in that sequence were away from home as well making it even more impressive. They have picked up a clean sheet in three of their last four games now and Tottenham to win to nil at bet365 brings in a nice price of 20/21 which is likely going to have stacks of appeal for this fixture. Spurs should cruise to a win in this one and comfortably so and given how many goals that they have put past Bournemouth recently, a Tottenham -2 Handicap for the match at a price of 5/4. The Lilywhites have twelve goals in their previous four against the Cherries.

Last Four Premier League Head to Head

Spurs 4 - 0 Bournemouth Bournemouth 0 - 0 Tottenham Tottenham 3- 0 Bournemouth Bournemouth 1 - 5 Tottenham So Tottenham do have the form against Bournemouth and in the bet365 correct score market, you are going to find some really nice appealing options to consider. A Spurs 3-0 correct score is a 7/1 punt while a 4-0 victory for them is a 10/1 shot. While they should win this at a canter, they go to Real Madrid in the Champions League in midweek so may ease off the gas if they get themselves comfortably ahead in this one. When it comes to Tottenham goals there is only one man worth mentioning and that, of course, is Harry Kane who is the 9/5 bet356 first goalscorer outright favorite. Kane has scored a Premier League brace in three of his last four games. Kane also has scoring form against Bournemouth too with six in three games against the Cherries and Kane is 6/5 to score two or more goals in the game. Spurs are still looking for their first league home win of the season (D2 L1) and it’s likely to happen here.

Current League Form (most recent last)

Spurs LDWDWW Bournemouth LLLWLD Bournemouth have had a tough season as they haven't been delivering enough of a threat going forward and have stayed shaky at the back. Their lack of output hasn’t been helped because of having missed Callum Wilson (who looks close to returning) and Josh King remains doubtful for this one. They are running at 15/4 in the anytime goalscorer market. Bournemouth lost their opening four league games of the season, but they have improved to take four points from their last three games, courtesy of a home win over Everton and a draw on home soil with Leicester. But their away form makes for some poor reading as they have lost all three on the road and have just the one away goal to their name as well. Are they going to have enough punch to challenge Spurs at Wembley? They don’t have previous Premier League form going against the Lilywhites either. They have faced Spurs four times before in the Premier league and from that they have collected only the one point and they haven't hit the back of the net against the Lilywhites in any of them. Both teams not to score at bet365 fetches a price of 4/5. Bournemouth have lost six of their eight games (D2) away at top-seven teams in the Premier League since the start of last season. The Cherries shipped at least three goals in each of those six defeats in that sequence as well. The only thing that is likely to give them a relatively comfortable afternoon is if Spurs take their foot off the gas if they get themselves ahead. Either way, the Cherries are likely to come away empty handed.

Tottenham v Bournemouth Betting Odds

Spurs 2/11, Draw 6/1, Bournemouth 12/1

Tottenham v Bournemouth Predictions

Spurs to win: This looks like a banker for Spurs here. They have piled twelve goals past Bournemouth in the last three league meetings with them and can add to that in this one. A Spurs 2-0 correct score has appeal, just because this is after the international break and with Spurs having an eye on the Champions League in midweek where they go to Real Madrid.

Manchester City v Stoke Predictions & Betting Odds – 14th October 2017

Manchester City
Manchester City v Stoke Betting Preview - Premier League 14th October 3.00pm Bookmakers are not giving the Potters too much of a chance in this one as they face a trip to the Etihad. Manchester City have averaged over three goals per game on home soil in the top flight this season and this could be an unforgettable afternoon for the Potters have won just one of their last six games in all competitions. Stoke have had their bright moments this season, but those have all been at home and they have struggled to pick up anything out on the road and are unlikely to get anything from this fixture.

Manchester City v Stoke Betting Tips

It has been plain sailing for Manchester City recently in the top flight. Ahead of the international break, they carded a 1-0 victory at Stamford Bridge against reigning champions Chelsea and while it wasn’t their biggest win of the season it was perhaps their most controlled and impressive one. That was a big statement by Pep Guardiola's men who remain at the top of the table. They are now on a five match winning streak in the top flight and there has been a clean sheet for them as well in each of their last four. Manchester City to win to nil at William Hill in this one is going to have appeal at 10/11. The Citizens have won their last two home games by an aggregate of 10-0 in the top flight, beating both Liverpool and Crystal Palace 5-0. Manchester City will, of course, be without Sergio Aguero still, but that shouldn’t stop them from creating plenty of chances.

Last Six Premier League Head to Head

Man City 0 - 0 Stoke Stoke 1 - 4 Man City Man City 4 - 0 Stoke Stoke 2 - 0 Man City Stoke 1 -4 Man City Man City 0 - 1 Stoke Gabriel Jesus has five league goals for the season and he is the William Hill first goalscorer outright favourite at a price of 9/4, while City also have Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane both in good form as well and they are 6/5 and 4/5 respectively in the anytime goalscorer market for the game. Manchester City have scored exactly four goals in each of their last three wins over the Potters and therefore you have the option of 8/11 on over 3.5 goals at bet365 for this match up. A Manchester City 4-1 correct score option at William Hill is a price of 14/1 while a 4-0 for them is in at a shorter price of 9/1. Even though they have Champions League action coming up, this should be a cruise for them. They have won their last eight in a row in all competitions, conceding just one goal in their last seven.

Current League Form (most recent last)

Man City DWWWWW Stoke WDDLLW Stoke are struggling along in the bottom half of the Premier League table and that is because they have had a pretty miserable time of things out on the road. They have picked up just the one point from their three away games this season from a draw at West Brom. That was a lucky point for them as well because it came towards the end of the match after a defensive mistake by the Baggies. They have had some big results this season, as they beat Arsenal and drew with Manchester United, but those results were on home soil. The Potters have just the two away goals to their name this season and they probably aren’t going to see enough of the ball to really threaten City too much in this one. The Potters have been behind at the break in two of their three away games this season. Peter Crouch is Stoke’s joint top scorer this season with two goals and he got one in a 2-1 home win over Southampton before the international break and with it, he set a record for the most headed goals in the Premier League. There is a price of 4/5 at William Hill on both teams NOT to score which does look quite probable looking at this game. Stoke have only return the one goal in their last four trips to Man City and after getting hammered 4-0 by Chelsea on home soil recently, you have to imagine that their back line is going to be in for a long afternoon. Stoke have collected just the one clean sheet for the season and last season they conceded exactly four goals on the road at three of the top four teams in the Premier League last season.

Manchester City v Stoke Betting Odds

Man City 1/6, Draw 6/1, Stoke 14/1

Manchester City v Stoke Predictions

Manchester City to win: This should be another comfortable match for Manchester City. They have good home form and they have the creativity and firepower to really open a Stoke side who have been poor out on the road. Manchester City to win to nil is going to offer some appeal while a 3-0 correct score for them does the same.

Crystal Palace v Chelsea Predictions & Betting Odds – 14th October 2017

Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace v Chelsea Betting Preview - Premier League 14th October 3.00pm Chelsea fell short at Stamford Bridge against Manchester City just before the international break, suffering a 1-0 loss against a title rival. They head to Selhurst Park on Saturday looking to pick themselves up from that defeat, but they also lost their main striker Alvaro Morata to injury in the game, a double blow for the Blues. Will Crystal Palace be able to take advantage and get their first goal and perhaps first points of the new season on the board?

Crystal Palace v Chelsea Betting Tips

Will this be the weekend that things come together for Crystal Palace? They are still in search of their first league goal and first points of the season. Their last two Premier League fixtures were rough ones with them suffering heavy defeats out at Manchester City and Manchester United. This isn’t exactly the easiest of fixtures for them either. Palace conceded nine goals in those two trips to Manchester so new boss Roy Hodgson has some kind of task on his hands here. That is seventeen goals conceded for them in seven league games which is the worst defensive record in the top flight this season. Christian Benteke is still out injured, which isn’t helping and there are doubts over Wilfried Zaha too. Under 2.5 goals at bet365 fetches a price of even money and that’s not a bad option.

Last Six Premier League Head to Head

Chelsea 1 - 2 Crystal Palace Crystal Palace 0 - 1 Chelsea Crystal Palace 0 - 3 Chelsea Chelsea 1 - 2 Crystal Palace Chelsea 1 - 0 Crystal Palace Crystal Palace 1 - 2 Chelsea So Palace are not scoring goals this season and Chelsea are not as prolific in front of goal as either of the Manchester Clubs at the top of the table. So this fixture may struggle to get beyond the 2.5 goal line. Palace can’t rely on anyone at the moment and their shortest priced option in the anytime goalscorer market is Bakary Sako at 4/1. Things are even over the last four Premier League games between the two sides with them having recorded two wins each, but all of the wins in that sequence were away victories. Palace are on a three match losing streak at home against Chelsea since a 1-0 victory over them back in 2014. Will Roy Hodgson have figured things out on the training pitch over the international break?

Current League Form (most recent last)

Crystal Palace LLLLLL Chelsea WWWDWL Chelsea lost their last league game, which was that 1-0 home loss against Manchester City in which they never really looked like threatening. But from that match, they lost main striker Alvaro Morata to injury which was a bigger long-term blow for them. That leaves Michy Batshuayi as the 20/21 anytime goalscorer favourite for this game and he scored five times in September and got a goal on international duty with Belgium recently as well. The Blues have been perfect out on the road with three wins from three and they netted at least two goals in each of those three victories as well, hammering Stoke 4-0 in their last road game. A Chelsea 2-0 correct score at bet365 fetches a price of 6/1, the same quote as there is on a Chelsea 1-0 which is a repeat of last season’s game between them at Selhurst Park.

Top Tip:

Under 2.5 goals at Even Money Even without Morata, Chelsea have plenty of pace and quality going forward through the likes of Eden Hazard (11/10 anytime goalscorer), Pedro and Willian and will be expected to collect the three points. In recent meetings though Crystal Palace have frustrated Chelsea for long periods of the games and so the Blues may have to turn up and show a little patience. A Draw/Chelsea half time/full time wager at bet365 brings a price of 11/4. Chelsea have gone W10 D2 in their last 12 games on the road against sides in the bottom half of the table. Considering this is coming off the intentional break and with Champions League action in midweek, this may not be a high scoring fixture and Chelsea to win to nil at bet365 offers a price of 6/5.

Crystal Palace v Chelsea Betting Odds

Chelsea 4/11, Draw 7/2, Crystal Palace 8/1

Crystal Palace v Chelsea Predictions

Chelsea to win: Palace are still floundering along without too many signs of changing things. Even without the threat of Alvaro Morata, Chelsea should have enough depth to find the solutions to be able to pick up three points in this London derby. Chelsea to win to nil extends value on them landing a victory.

Burnley v West Ham Predictions & Betting Odds – 14th October 2017

Burnley
Burnley v West Ham Betting Preview - Premier League 14th October 3.00pm Burnley continues to defy the odds and they wrapped up a good away win at Goodison Park just before the international break. That took them out to a five match unbeaten streak of form in the top flight. It’s been great stuff from them and they will fancy their chances at home against West Ham. There have been improvements from the Hammers recently with just one loss in their last four played, but they have had their issues out on the road, making this a difficult trip to Turf Moor for them.

Burnley v West Ham Betting Tips

The Clarets are having a tremendous season and so far they are the real surprise package of the new term. They are now unbeaten in five games in the top flight after having taken a 1-0 win over Everton at Goodison Park just before the international break. They have lost just the one game all season and really not many people would have seen that coming ahead of the season. The Clarets have a mixed W1 D1 L1 record on home soil this season and they have only returned the one goal in those three games but that one was enough to give them a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace back in mid September. Six of Burnley’s seven games this season in the top flight have seen two goals or less and under 1.5 goals at bet365 is a price of 7/4 and that has happened in seven of Burnley’s last 13 home games.

Burnley 1 - 2 West Ham West Ham 1 - 0 Burnley West Ham 1 - 0 Burnley Burnley 1 - 3 West Ham Burnley 2 - 2 West Ham West ham 1 - 2 Burnley Burnley have conceded just five league goals this season and that is bettered only by the top two, Manchester City and Manchester United who have only conceded two each. If Burnley were to pick up the win in this one, it won’t likely be by a big margin at all and a Burnley to win by a one goal margin returns a decent price of 3/1 at bet365. Burnley doesn't have home form going against West Ham as they have lost their last three at Turf Moor against the Irons in all competitions and suffered a 2-1 loss in this corresponding fixture last season. But right at this moment, they look solid enough to avoid defeat. Chris Wood is the 5/1 bet365 first goalscorer outright favourite while he is a price of 7/4 in the anytime goalscorer market.

Current League Form (oldest first)

Burnley LDWDDW West Ham LLWDLW The Clarets’ overall form at Turf Moor in the top flight isn’t great as they have won only two of their last nine there and so the Hammers can turn up with some optimism. They did land a league double over the Clarets last season in the top flight. However, West Ham have not been good on the road at all this season having picked up only the one point from four games and they scored in just one of those four games too. Their last away game ended in a 0-0 draw at West Brom which could be a good indicator for this one. A 0-0 Correct Score at bet365 fetches a price of 15/2. The Hammers West Ham have posted a W2 D1 L4 record this season in the league, but have improved to W2 D1 L1 in their last four, the only loss in that sequence coming against Spurs.

Top Tip:

0-0 Correct Score at 15/2 But they have struggled going forward this season on the road and their top scorer is Javier Hernandez who is 2/1 in the bet365 anytime goalscorer market, West Ham have not been ahead at the break in any of their league fixtures this season, home or away this season and have been behind at the break in three of their four away games this term. Their defence has been a bit shambolic on the road, leading to three of their four road games to have gone over 2.5 goals. West Ham do have the positive of being on a five match winning streak against Burnley and are unbeaten in six against them. They have scored at least two goals in each of their last four visits to Turf Moor as well. A West Ham Draw No Bet is a 10/11 jolly.

Burnley v West Ham Betting Odds

Burnley v West Ham Predictions

Draw: A winner may not emerge in this fixture. Burnley are strong on home soil but have had problems sticking the ball in the back of the net at Turf Moor, while West Ham have not been a prolific inside out on the road. A share of the spoils looks likely.

Watford v Arsenal Predictions & Betting Odds – 14th October 2017

Watford
Watford v Arsenal Betting Preview - Premier League 14th October 5.30pm This should be a good contest at Vicarage Road between Watford and Arsenal. Punters may see a little value in the home side getting something out of this fixture as they have done well this season on the whole under Marco Silva. Arsenal though have improved over their recent fixtures having dropped only the two league points in their last four games played. But the Gunners have remained winless out on the road this season and looking at the odds, the Hornets may have been a little bit underestimated for this Saturday evening clash.

Watford v Arsenal Betting Tips

So Watford are looking for their first home win of the season in the top flight after having gone D2 L1 so far. They will want to quickly forget their last home game though when they lost 6-0 against Manchester City. That was just one of those freak results which turn up now and again and they can get over it. In their other six league games, this season the Hornets have gone W3 D3 so they are doing well. They have scored at least two goals netted in five of their seven league games too so they do carry a threat. Over 2.5 goals at bet365 should have some appeal at a price of 4/7 for this fixture even though the Hornets have failed to find the back of the net in their last two home games. Overall Marco Silva’s men are still averaging 1.5 goals per game this season. Last Six Premier League Head to Head Arsenal 1 - 2 Watford Watford 1 - 3 Arsenal Arsenal 4 - 0 Watford Watford 0 - 3 Arsenal Watford 1- 2 Arsenal Arsenal 3 - 0 Watford Watford should get chances against an Arsenal defence that hasn’t looked rock solid this season. Joint top scorers for Watford so far this season are Abdoulaye Doucoure and Richarlison with three goals each and Brazilian Richarlison has been one of their stand out players of the season. Watford have scored first in four of their seven games this season and the Hornets are currently four points better off than they were after seven games last season. So there has been a marked improvement for them this season. Both teams to score at bet365 carries a price of 8/13 and that happened in both games between them last season where they traded away wins. Watford have won just one of their previous eight Premier League games against Arsenal (L7). Current League Form (most recent last) Watford WDWLWD Arsenal LLWDWW The Gunners have a pretty good record then against Watford in the top flight and they have scored at least three goals in five of their eight previous Premier League games against Watford. Alexandre Lacazette is the 20/21 bet365 anytime goalscorer favourite for this one with Olivier Giroud and Alexis Sanchez at 11/10. The Gunners have collected ten points from the last twelve available in the top flight and have a four-match clean sheet streak going on. However, that needs to be put into context, because the three wins in that sequence were at home against sides currently 10th or lower in the league Bournemouth, West Brom and Brighton). This should be a bigger test for them. Arsenal have had a poor season away from home so far, having picked up just the one point in a draw at Chelsea in their last away game. The Gunners are still seeking their first away goal of the season as well as their first road victory.

Watford v Arsenal Betting Odds

Arsenal 4/7, Draw 3/1, Watford 9/2

Watford v Arsenal Predictions

Watford to win: Arsenal haven’t scored an away goal yet this season and their recent upturn in form has come at home against sides struggling for form. This will be a test for them at Vicarage Road and the home side looks some value to produce a good win for themselves here and they look to be underestimated in the market.

Liverpool v Manchester United Predictions & Betting Odds – 14th October 2017

Liverpool
Liverpool v Manchester United Betting Preview - Premier League 14th October 12.30pm What makes this one so interesting is not only the high-profile nature of the clash but because this is the first time this season that Manchester United will have been tested against a top six side from last season. United have put together a good season so far having dropped only two points, but how will they stand up to the quick Liverpool attack? The Reds have home advantage and while inconsistencies have plagued them this season, they need a big performance to shift some momentum and maybe this is the game it happens in.

Liverpool v Manchester United Betting Tips

What a game to kick off the Premier League return with. Liverpool needs a big performance in this one to land a victory that could really spark their season into life. So far this season, their returns in the top flight have been a little disappointing with a W3 D3 L1 record having been posted by Jurgen Klopp’s men. They are unbeaten though at home in the Premier League with a W2 D1 record with wins over Crystal Palace and Arsenal, but their most recent home game saw them frustrated in a 1-1 draw with Burnley. Liverpool’s attack has either not been clinical enough on the day, or shoddy defending has let them down. Not everything has come together often enough for them. But they are a talented, positive squad and are favourites because they handled themselves well against the other top six last term. With each of the last five between these two having produced two goals or less, under 2.5 goals at bet365 looks a bit of value at even money.

Liverpool vs Manchester United 2017 Infographic

The two fixtures between United and Liverpool in the top flight last season both ended in a draw. In the anytime goalscorer market, Liverpool’s shortest priced options are Daniel Sturridge and Roberto Firmino at 6/4 while Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah are at 13/8. Liverpool to win to nil is 7/2 at bet365 and that would be on the back of them having collected two clean sheets in three league home games this season and having blanked United in their last two home games against them (one Premier League, one Europa League). Both teams not to score in this fixture at bet365 returns a price of 6/5. Because of their patchy form, this suddenly becomes a high pressure game for Liverpool who start seven points back of the Red Devils in the league standings. Back in August, they caused a stir in destroying Arsenal at Anfield, can they do the same to the Red Devils? They have only gone W1 D4 L1 in all competitions in their last six games, so aren’t necessarily carrying great form so would need to raise their game. Current League Form (most recent last) Liverpool WWLDWD Man Utd WWDWWW Manchester United have had a solid and comfortable start to the season. They have only conceded two goals now in their last nine Premier League games stretching back to the end of the last term. They are ticking over in great form at the moment with them being on a six match winning streak going across all competitions. However, their fixture list so far has favoured them a lot and this will be the first time this season that they have faced any of the teams who are currently sitting inside of the top ten in the table. So they really haven’t been tested at all, so how will their defence stand up against a good attack? United have six clean sheets in their seven games and United to win t nil at bet365 is a 9/2 price. Out on the road, they have gone W2D1, the dropped points coming in a draw at Stoke. When they went to St Mary’s in their last league away game they had a real test against Southampton and had to get out of Dodge with a 1-0 win. But Liverpool will threaten them a lot more than the Saints did. Romelu Lukaku, who has seven Premier League goals this season is the bet365 first goalscorer favourite at a price of 7/2. The Red Devils have suffered just the one loss in their last eight games across all competitions against Liverpool in a W4 D3 L1 record They are winless in their last four against them though in a D3 L1 record. The Red Devils have shown this season, especially late on in games, that they are a powerful side on the counter attack. Against a Liverpool side who like to throw men forward, that could work well in their favour. But there will be question marks over they handle their first real test of the league season.

Liverpool v Manchester United Betting Odds

Liverpool 8/5, Manchester United 13/8, Draw 12/5

Liverpool v Manchester United Predictions

Draw: There is no clear picture of how United’s defence will stand up to a stern test, while Liverpool haven’t been able to put a winning performance together for a while and remain vulnerable at the back. Therefore backing the recent trend of drawn matches between them should offer value.
