The Hard Tackle presents to you the one-stop shop to scour all the best betting markets for the sixteenth gameweek of the English Premier League
It is the derby gameweek in the Premier League as we gear up for two mouth-watering clashes on Sunday. Liverpool host an Everton side looking to rise up the table after finally locking down their vacant managerial position while Manchester United get set to be the next team to try and halt the Manchester City juggernaut.
Arsenal face a Southampton side who are looking no better under Mauricio Pellegrino. One interesting matchup will be when Burnley host Watford on Saturday – two teams who are on the right end of the table. Tottenham will be desperate for a win as they host Stoke while Newcastle face Leicester in hopes of ending their winless streak.
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, a great week.
Favourable Bets result: 9/12
Underdog Bets result: 2/6
THT Favourable Bets Overall Result: 96/178
West Ham United vs Chelsea
Chelsea may have a few players unavailable and West Ham did give a good account of themselves against Manchester City. It is after all a London derby and thus, an entertaining matchup is expected. But, Chelsea should come up trumps in a match that should see goals on either side.
1. Chelsea Asian Handicap -1.0 @ 1.820
2. Over 2.5 Match Goals @ 1.80
1. Chelsea Asian Handicap -2.5 @ 4.250
Southampton vs Arsenal
The Gunners seem poised for another win as they travel to St. Mary’s. Mauricio Pellegrino has been underwhelming in his new job and there are indications of the manager being unable to unlock his players’ true potential. Pellegrino would hope to get to the January window, which means the games leading up to the new year will be crucial.
Saints always have the opportunity to trouble any opposition on their day and Pellegrino would hope it is so on Sunday.
1. Arsenal to win @ 2.00
2. Both Teams to Score – YES @ 1.66
1. Result & Both Teams to Score – Arsenal & YES @ 3.75
Liverpool vs Everton
A derby that just got more interesting. Everton are finally finding some form under new manager Sam Allardyce and with Liverpool themselves putting goals past oppositions with ease, it is sure to be one cracking encounter. Big Sam would be aware of Liverpool’s fragile defence and their inability to retain narrow leads.
We may see a vintage Big Sam performance from Everton on Sunday, with a bit more physical gameplay – something which can throw Liverpool and their gegenpressing system off a bit. Also, a more physical approach could contain some of their stars. Again a match where both teams are likely to get on the scoresheet.
1. Everton Asian Handicap +2.0 @ 1.575
2. Liverpool Clean Sheet – NO @ 1.83
1. Full Time Result – Draw Or Everton @ 3.50
Manchester United vs Manchester City
The Manchester Derby – this season touted as a potential title decider – is set to see its first leg, of sorts, being played out on Sunday. At Old Trafford, United are unbeaten for a record number of games and City will be wary of the threat their hosts may post.
Paul Pogba’s absence might see Mourinho deploy a defensive system again, which will in fact serve City well as it will allow their creative players to take up the empty spaces and play in front of the United wall. A game that, if it opens up, might serve us a real classic.
1. Both Teams to Score – YES @ 1.66
2. Over 10.5 Corners @ 2.00
1. Full Time Result – Draw @ 3.50
Tottenham should make quick work of Stoke, despite their problems in recent times. There are set to be a lot of goals this gameweek, with Burnley vs Watford and Huddersfield vs Brighton set to see all four teams get on the scoresheet.
1. Dele Alli to score anytime @ 2.10
2. Burnley vs Watford – Both Teams to Score – YES @ 1.95
3. Huddersfield vs Brighton – Both Teams to Score – YES @ 2.25
4. Newcastle Draw No Bet vs Leicester City @ 1.80
