EPL Preview, 13 January


There are 2 live English Premier League matches taking place on Sunday including Tottenham v Manchester United and we take a look at each of them from a betting angle.


Everton v Bournemouthclick here to bet

Everton are 11th on the table, they have lost 4 of their last 5 matches and have only won 1 of their last 8.  Their most recent game was a 1-0 home defeat by Leicester and they have only taken 2 points from the last 12 they have played for at home.  Bournemouth are level with Everton on points but 1 point behind them on the table on goal difference and they have lost 4 of their last 6 matches, winning just once in this time.  Their last game was a 3-3 home draw against Watford and they have lost their last 5 matches in succession on the road.

Suggested Bet: Everton win at 15/20

Everton have won their last 3 home games against Bournemouth and while not a confident call I suspect they will edge this game between 2 out of form teams.


Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester United click here to bet

The match of the weekend sees 3rd place Spurs up against a resurgent Manchester United who sit 6th.  Spurs have won 6 of their last 7 but the exception was in their last home game when they went down 3-1 to wolves, an 8/1 upset.  They have won 6 of their 9 home matches this season.  Manchester United are coming off 4 successive victories although all of these have been against sides in the bottom half of the table.  They kept their first clean sheet in 7 matches when they beat Newcastle 2-0 away in their last start.

Suggested Bet: Tottenham win at 11/10

Tottenham have an excellent home record against United and I feel that United’s resurgence may have been over played in the media as they haven’t yet met a team that sits above them in the table.
