EPL Preview, 16 March


There are only 3 English Premier League matches taking place on Saturday and we suggest a bet in each of them.


West Ham v Huddersfield – click here to bet

West Ham are currently 9th on the table, but are coming off a disappointing 2-0 away loss at Cardiff.  Their recent home form has been strong though and they have won 3 of their last 5, drawing the other 2.  8 of the 15 West Ham home games have delivered for over 2.5 goal backers, but unders backers would have collected in 3 of the last 4.

Huddersfield remain firmly rooted to the bottom of the table with only 3 wins in 30 matches and last time out they lost 2-0 at home to Bournemouth.  In their last 5 away matches they have only taken 1 point and 4 of their last 5 away games would have delivered for under 2.5 goal backers.


Suggested Bet:  Under 2.5 goals at 15/20

Under 2.5 goals would have arrived in West Ham’s last 3 matches and Huddersfield’s last 4.


Burnley v Leicester click here to bet

Burnley are 17th on the table 2 points above the relegation zone, but they have lost their last 3 matches in a row, conceding 9 goals and scoring 3.  Their home form has been pretty good of late though and they have only lost 1 of their last 5, winning 3 and drawing 1 and Burnley home games have averaged 3.1 goals each and 3 of their last 4 home games have had 3 goals or more in them.

Leicester are 10th on the table having won 2 out of their last 3 matches with both wins coming at home.  Their last away game was a 2-1 defeat at Watford and they have only won 1 of their last 5 away matches.  Leicester away games have averaged 2.8 goals with 3 of the last 4 delivering for over 2.5 goal backers.

Suggested Bet:  Burnley win at 41/20

Burnley are a tough nut to crack at home and Leicester are struggling on the road, Burnley also have a good record in this fixture.


Bournemouth v Newcastle Unitedclick here to bet

Bournemouth are 12th on the table and they broke a 5 match run without a victory when they beat Huddersfield 2-0 away last time out.  They have won close to 50% of their home games this season with 9 of the 15 games delivering for over 2.5 goal backers although 3 of the last 4 have seen unders arrive.

Newcastle are a position and 3 points behind Bournemouth on the table and they have won 3 of their last 4 games, however all 3 of those victories have come at home.  They have battled on the road this season winning just twice in 14 attempts and their away games have been the lowest scoring in the division, averaging just 2 goals each with a combined total of 2 or less goals in 5 of their 14 matches.

Newcastle won the reverse fixture 2-1 and the sides drew this fixture 2-2 last season.

Suggested Bet:  Bournemouth win at 21/20

Bournemouth look to have found their rhythm again and they can beat a Newcastle side that really battles on the road.
