Favourable Bets Result: 3/9
Underdog Bets Result: 2/5
THT Favourable Bets Overall: 89/166
Manchester United vs Crystal Palace
A game that could decide how the next month goes for Manchester United. The derby defeat to City came at the wrong time. It will be interesting to see how the international break effects the squad. For Crystal Palace, it is about snapping a winless streak that has become scary now, with the team out of the relegation zone only on goal difference.
Expect Palace to give United problems. But, Manchester United should have this one in the bag.
1. Manchester United to score in BOTH HALVES @ 2.20
2. Romelu Lukaku to score anytime @ 2.10
3. Under 3.5 Cards @ 1.57
4. Manchester United Clean Sheet – NO @ 1.72
1. Romelu Lukaku to score 2 or more @ 6.00
Watford vs Liverpool
A match that is closer than it seems. Watford may be 10 points behind Liverpool. But, the Reds haven’t been at their very best in the recent matches, which has opened up some room of doubt for the Saturday fixture. Despite the recent struggle at Watford, there is a sense of satisfaction with the way the Hornets are performing, which is automatic performance enhancer.
While Mohamed Salah has found his scoring boots, Liverpool are slightly shifting focus from the terrific trio to other players on the pitch for goals, which is reassuring. Expect Liverpool to have another tough match at hand. But, their ability to grind out results despite poor performances is what makes them title contenders. Watford will hope the referees don’t make the same mistakes they did in Liverpool’s last match against Watford.
1. Liverpool to win @ 1.57
2. Both Teams to Score – YES @ 1.75
3. Under 3.5 Cards @ 1.57
1. Both Teams to Score in 2nd Half – YES @ 3.25
Tottenham vs Chelsea
There have always been goals in this London derby. But, the last two matches have seen the away side come out victorious. Despite Tottenham being associated with news of struggles, they are just a point behind Chelsea and five behind league toppers Manchester City.
It will be interesting to see if Tottenham’s focus will be on the match, with so many of their players linked with moves, including the manager himself. This should be another intriguing fixture. But, a draw looks like the most probable result right now, judging by Chelsea’s results against the other BIG SIX clubs.
1. Both Teams to Score – YES @ 1.61
2. Harry Kane to score anytime @ 1.95
3. Under 4.5 Cards @ 1.80
1. Full Time Result – Draw @ 3.50
Bournemouth vs Arsenal
There might be some signs of struggle starting to appear for the new look Arsenal, who have now drawn their last three Premier League games. Bournemouth on the other hand, have lost their last two. Regardless, Eddie Howe has weaved magic at Dean Court, with just a single loss and 11 points from a maximum 18 so far.
Another draw beckons for Unai Emery and his men?
1. Over 10.5 Corners @ 2.00
2. Alexandre Lacazette to score anytime @ 2.10
1. Over 14 Corners @ 7.50
