There are 6 English Premier League matches taking place on Wednesday and we take a look at each of them from a betting angle.
Burnley v Liverpool– click here to bet
Burnley have slipped to 2nd from the bottom of the table after a horror run that has seen them take just 2 points from their last 7 matches. Their home form has been very poor with just 1 win in 6 starts. Liverpool scored an injury time winner against Everton, on the weekend, to keep the pressure on Manchester City and they are currently 2 points behind them on the table and they are still undefeated. Their last away match was a comfortable 3-0 win at Watford.
Suggested bet: Handicap, Liverpool (-1) at 15/20.
Getting out of jail at Everton would no doubt have boosted Liverpool’s confidence and I am expecting a comfortable win against a side which is struggling at home.
Everton v Newcastle United – click here to bet
Everton are 6th on the table after their heart-breaking injury time loss to Liverpool on Sunday. Their recent home form has been excellent and they have won 4 on the trot. Newcastle are currently 15th on the table and they saw a 3 match winning streak ended on the weekend when they lost 3-0 at home to West Ham.
Suggested bet: Everton Clean Sheet, YES, at 21/20.
This has historically been a low scoring fixture and Everton have kept clean sheets in 3 of their last 4 home games.
Fulham v Leicester – click here to bet
Fulham are bottom of the table on 8 points from 14 matches and while they fought hard on the weekend, they lost 2-0 away at Chelsea. Prior to that they had beaten Southampton 3-2 at home and they certainly look a different side under new management. Leicester are 8th on the table after a 2-0 home win over Watford and they are undefeated in their last 5 League matches and their away form is decent with 3 wins in 7 games.
Suggested bet: Fulham win at 2/1.
Fulham look to be a side on the up and they look the value bet to win at home.
Wolves v Chelsea – click here to bet
Wolves are 12th on the table and have been in disappointing form taking just 1 point from the last 18 they have played for. They took the lead against Cardiff on the weekend but the home side came back to win 2-1. Wolves have lost their last 3 home matches and only 3 of the Wolves 14 matches this season have delivered for over 2.5 goal backers.
Chelsea remain 3rd on the table after a 2-0 home win over Fulham and their only defeat of the season came on the road away at Spurs on their last road trip.
Suggested bet: Chelsea win at 15/20.
Wolves are battling for points at the moment and Chelsea can dish out their 4th successive home loss.
Manchester United v Arsenal – click here to bet
The big match in the midweek programme sees 7th placed Manchester United at home to 4th placed Arsenal. United have not won in their last 3 League games and on the weekend they drew 2-2 at Southampton.
Arsenal have won 9 and drawn 3 of their last 12 matches and on Sunday they had to come from behind to beat London rivals, Tottenham 4-2 at home. It was their most impressive result of the season and they go into this game with plenty of confidence.
Manchester United 14/10
Suggested bet: Arsenal win at 2/1.
Manchester United have an impressive home record against Arsenal but on current form, I cannot look past the Gunners here.
Tottenham Hotspur v Southampton – click here to bet
Tottenham dropped to 5th on the table after the 4-2 away loss at Arsenal and the defeat broke a run of 3 successive League victories. Southampton played to a 2-2 home draw against Manchester United on the weekend but they continue to slide down the table and are currently in 18th and without a League win in their last 10 starts.
Tottenham Hotspur 4/10
Suggested bet: Handicap, Tottenham (-1) at even money.
Tottenham can bounce back from the Arsenal defeat against a side that has only taken 4 points on the road all season. They beat Southampton 5-2 in this fixture last season and I can see a similar winning margin.
