The Hard Tackle presents to you the one-stop shop to scour all the best betting markets for the twenty sixth gameweek of the English Premier League
It is the current runaway leaders that kick off Premier League’s twenty-sixth gameweek, with a tricky test away to Burnley, followed by two potential mouth-watering clashes that see West Brom face Southampton and Arsenal go up against Everton.
Manchester United face a Huddersfield side that are struggling a great deal recently while Leicester will hope they can win without Riyad Mahrez, with the star still absent from training as the Foxes measure up against Swansea.
Tottenham can potentially leapfrog Liverpool if they beat the Reds at Anfield, which by no means will be an easy task for Pochettino & co. Struggling defensive champions Chelsea go up against a Watford side that are yet to win under their new manager Javi Gracia.
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: 5/14
Underdog Bets result: 2/6
THT Favourable Bets Overall Result: 158/301
Manchester United vs Huddersfield
On form, possibly the best fixture Jose Mourinho and his men could have asked for after what was perhaps, their worst performance under the Portuguese. Huddersfield are struggling and, while no pushovers, Manchester United should be able to get this one over the line.
Manchester United have become infamous for having a run, small or otherwise, of frustrating results on the back of a poor display and Jose Mourinho would hope they are able to break the trend this time around. We see lots of goals in this one.
1. Over 2.5 Match Goals @ 1.57
2. Half-Time Result – Manchester United @ 1.50
1. Result – Manchester United and Both Teams to Score – YES @ 3.40
Arsenal vs Everton
Theo Walcott returns to Emirates after a dream of a start to his life at Everton. His brace saw the Toffees end a torrid run of winless games and the striker would be looking to show Arsenal what they are missing on Saturday. Alternatively, neutral fans should be excited for the reunion of Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang.
This match promises lots of goals irrespective of the result and could even become a classic. Ideally, this fixture could also produce a lot of cards, with Arsenal players likely to come out with fire under their belly after their trepid display against Swansea.
1. Arsenal Clean Sheet – NO @ 1.95
2. Over 2.5 Match Goals @ 1.57
3. Over 3.5 Match Cards @ 1.83
1. Over 4.5 Match Goals @ 4.00
2. Theo Walcott to score anytime @ 5.00
Liverpool vs Tottenham
Another game where, ideally, we should see a lot of goals. And, if Tottenham do go behind with not a lot to go before full-time, we can expect them to lose their cool, as they have earlier as well against other opponents, which means we should see a few ugly challenges as well.
1. Both Teams to Score – YES @ 1.50
2. Over 4.5 Match Cards @ 1.83
1. A red card in Match – YES @ 4.50
Watford vs Chelsea
A game that is oh-so important for Chelsea, despite not looking so. A hectic run awaits the Blues and Conte would love to go into that run of games after gathering a couple of victories and some momentum in the process. Watford are the perfect opponents for Chelsea.
The Hornets have been struggling and despite the firepower they possess, one cannot look past Chelsea for the sole fact that this fixture could just be the making or otherwise of Chelsea’s 2017-18 campaign.
1. Chelsea to win @ 1.65
2. Over 2.5 Match Goals @ 1.85
1. Marcos Alonso to score anytime @ 4.00
Burnley could be the one to tame Manchester City, who look a class above everyone else right now. Bournemouth would be looking to grab the opportunity to leapfrog Everton with a win over Stoke while Brighton and West Ham would be looking to distance themselves from the relegation-threatened pack.
A relegation six-pointer is at hand as West Brom host Southampton. The Baggies are in threat of falling behind others and would ideally want to win at Hawthorns on Saturday.
1. Burnley vs Manchester City – Over 2.5 Match Goals @ 1.70
2. Bournemouth to beat Stoke City @ 1.90
3. Brighton vs West Ham – Full Time Result – Draw or West Ham @ 1.60
4. Leicester to beat Swansea @ 1.80
5. Jamie Vardy to score anytime @ 2.20
1. West Brom vs Southampton – Full Time Result – Draw @ 3.20
2. Crystal Palace vs Newcastle – Full Time Result – Draw @ 3.40
