The Hard Tackle presents to you the one-stop shop to scour all the best betting markets for the fifth gameweek of the English Premier League
The fifth gameweek of the Premier League is sure to be an interesting prospect. The chances of upsets broaden, with the top clubs playing an extra matchday due to their participation in Europe during the midweek. Nevertheless, be prepared for a cracker of a game at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea host Arsenal.
Liverpool host Burnley while Wayne Rooney is set for an emotional return to Old Trafford as Everton pay Manchester United a Sunday visit. It will be interesting to see how Crystal Palace respond to Frank De Boer’s sacking as they host Southampton while Huddersfield face their first true test as they aim to bounce back from their defeat against West Ham United.
Before we delve into the best markets for the upcoming gameweek, we take a look at the result of our suggestions from the earlier gameweek.
Favourable Bets result: 6/14
Underdog Bets result: 1/5
THT Favourable Bets Overall Result: 27/49
Liverpool vs Burnley
Liverpool were left frustrated in the midweek fixture as well, with defensive lapses costing them a win. They now face Burnley at home, a prospect that seems daunting despite the gulf in the two teams’ reputation and Burnley’s perennial away form.
With Sadio Mane suspended, Philippe Coutinho is almost a confirmed starter and one can expect a thunderous performance from the Brazilian on Saturday. Burnley’s away woes should resurface again, despite earning a shock win at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season and Liverpool are likely to get back to winning ways.
1. Burnley Asian Handicap +2.0 @ 1.70
2. Coutinho to score anytime @ 2.75
3. Liverpool Clean Sheet – NO @ 1.90
1. Chris Wood to score anytime @ 5.00
Chelsea vs Arsenal
The game of the weekend – Arsenal would be eager to show they are still genuine challengers for the title while Chelsea would be looking to exact revenge on their recent losses to the Gunners. Eden Hazard and Alexis Sanchez both returned to the respective lineups and looked to be in fine form.
The two attackers will be vital to their respective team’s success on Sunday. Expect a high-octane match with several cards to be shown by the referee. There should be goals in the match and this could very well end up in a draw.
1. Both Teams to Score – YES @ 1.61
2. Chelsea Card Handicap +1 @ 1.83
1. A Red Card in Match – YES @ 3.75
Manchester United vs Everton
Manchester United were held to a frustrating draw at Stoke and would really love to get back to winning ways in the Premier League. Paul Pogba’s unavailability though, will have an impact, the extent of which will only be possible to gauge once United do take the field on Sunday.
Expect Everton to give United a hard time on Sunday and while Jose Mourinho’s side does look like one to be able to pull through, they might just be held to a second successive draw in the Premier League. Romelu Lukaku should continue his scoring run, though, and should put at least one past his former club.
1. Romelu Lukaku to score anytime @ 1.80
2. Corners in First 10 Minutes – YES @ 1.50
3. 2nd Half Result – Manchester United @ 1.57
1. Romelu Lukaku to score 2 or more @ 4.33
Harry Kane seems to have found his scoring boots again and is on a menacing run, with a brace against Dortmund as well. Manchester City, too, dismantled Feyenoord during the midweek but should find it difficult against Watford while Huddersfield and West Brom would both look to bounce back from their defeats last gameweek.
1. Southampton Draw No Bet vs Crystal Palace @ 1.72
2. Newcastle to win vs Stoke @ 2.30
3. Bournemouth vs Brighton – Draw or Brighton @ 1.72
1. Huddersfield vs Leicester – Full Time Result – Draw @ 3.40
