Very unlucky last week. We got 9/10 predictions correct. Bournemouth who were down to 10 men scored two late goals to make it 4-0 against Huddersfield, with under 3.5 goals in that game being the only losing prediction. This week we have a 15/1 acca.
West Ham v Leicester (Team B / Over 0.5)
The Hammers will be expected to be on the front foot from the off but this will play into Leicester’s hands. Although West Ham showed glimpes on Sunday against Watford, they were poor for most of the game. Leicester’s pace on the break will catch West Ham out on more than one occasion. This could be a horrible night for the Hammers if Leicester score first. Hammers fans are also expected to protest against the board tonight.
Crystal Palace v Stoke (Team A / Over 0.5)
Every game is like a cup final for The Eagles now, and the one thing going in their favour in this game is that Stoke still haven’t tightened up their defence. Only twice this season have Stoke kept a clean sheet and I expect Palace to score. Palace have scored two goals in each of their last three home games and can’t fall further behind in their fight for survival.
Man Utd v Brighton (Team A / Over 1.5)
Should be a comfortable win for Man Utd on Saturday. United are like a different side since Paul Pogba has come back; creating more chances and looking like an attacking threat again. Lukaku will want to prove now that he is ‘top-dog’ at United with Zlatan back on the scene, so I’m expecting a few goals from the Belgian too.
Newcastle v Watford (Team B / Over 0.5)
Every week since I have started this, I have had Watford down to score, and they haven’t let me down yet. Marco Silva only knows how to play one way and that is to attack. I expect the Hornets to score against a Newcastle team that are struggling at the moment. Newcastle have conceded in nine out of their 12 games this season, and have lost their last three.
Swansea v Bournemouth (Team B / 0.5)
The Swans look like a team heading for the Championship, and Bournemouth have found a bit of form recently with three wins in four. The return of Callum Wilson is a massive bonus for the Cherries, and he is now their top goal scorer after his hat-trick last week. I fully expect Bournemouth to put another nail in The Swans coffin, who have lost their last five.
Spurs v West Brom (Team A / Over 1.5)
Tottenham have struggled to find goals after their midweek Champions League games, but after their defeat in the North London Derby last weekend, its important that they get back on track in the league. It’s two wins in 20 now for managerless West Brom who have conceded in their last eight games. This could be another bad afternoon for the Baggies.
Liverpool v Chelsea (Team B / Over 0.5)
I fully expect Liverpool to score but the odds are too low. Liverpool had another horror show at the back against Sevilla during the week, and I think Chelsea will have too much going forward for Liverpool to keep a cleansheet. In terms of the title, this could be win or bust for both clubs, so we should have a cracker on our hands on Saturday evening.
Southampton v Everton (Team A / 0.5)
Similar to their rivals across Stanley Park, Everton’s defence is absolutley shocking. This is a really hard game to predict, so going on the basis of Everton’s current form, and the amount of goals they are conceding, the home team to score seems like the logical bet.
Burnley v Arsenal (Over 1.5)
Arsenal were brilliant last weekend and hopefully they can kick on now and be serious contenders for a Champions League spot. However, when they have to fight and battle against teams they struggle, and Burnley will make this a scrappy game. The groundsman will be told to make the Turf Moore pitch difficult to play on, but I still expect a few goals and an Arsenal win.
Huddersfield v Man City (Team B / Over 1.5)
Man City will be too strong for Huddersfield and I expect another comfortable win for them. I have had City to score twice every week so far and they haven’t let me down yet. There is not much else you say about City, they are in a league of their own at the minute.
