We take a look at some of the potentially profitable markets from the 26th gameweek of the Premier League featuring Manchester City vs Chelsea and more.
Premier League has never been this interesting in the 2018-19 campaign. Manchester City have taken the lead and could retain it if they manage to overcome the challenge of Chelsea. Liverpool though, can restore their lead if they win at home against Bournemouth.
Manchester United might just be able to get into the top four after a long long time this season should they win at Craven Cottage. Arsenal will also have to win their tie at Huddersfield to keep up pace with Chelsea and United. Tottenham are trying to sneak into the title race and could put more pressure on the top two with a win over Leicester.
Favourable Bets Result: 11/15
Underdog Bets Result: 3/6.
THT Favourable Bets Overall: 146/265
Fulham vs Manchester United
It’s nine wins out of 10 for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who becomes the first United manager to win the Manager of the Month award since Sir Alex Ferguson. Within touching distance of top four now, with Chelsea set to face Manchester City, United could sneak into the top four this weekend itself.
Fulham are already seven points away from safety and could find themselves falling further into the gaping hole of relegation. Their head-to-head record against Manchester United isn’t providing any positivity either. We expect a comfortable win for the away side.
1. Manchester United to win @ 1.61
2. Over 2.5 Match Goals @ 1.61
3. Romelu Lukaku to score anytime @ 2.05
1. Romelu Lukaku to score 2 or more @ 6.00
Liverpool vs Bournemouth
Strapped for options due to an increasing pile of injuries, Jurgen Klopp has slowly seen the Reds’ lead atop the Premier League being whittled away by Manchester City. Bournemouth have had a positive season so far. But, there is no clue as to which Bournemouth will step up to face Liverpool on Saturday, with their performances being a bit of a mixed bag recently.
Still, the Cherries should be able to test Liverpool, who genuinely look like they are handing away another virtual title, with the recent slips. Expect an evenly contested game, with a draw the likeliest result.
1. Bournemouth Asian Handicap + 2.5 @ 1.575
2. Liverpool Clean Sheet – NO @ 1.90
1. Under 2.5 Match Goals @ 3.00
Huddersfield Town vs Arsenal
Relegation almost imminent, Huddersfield are hoping for a miracle. 13 points adrift of safety, they face an Arsenal side that will be looking to react positively to the 3-1 drubbing at the hands of Manchester City. Recent history suggests the tie has been closely contested in terms of scorelines.
But, we expect a clean Arsenal win on Saturday.
1. Arsenal to win @ 1.60
2. Over 2.5 Match Goals @ 1.80
1. Granit Xhaka to score anytime @ 8.00
2. Matteo Guendouzi to score anytime @ 8.00
Manchester City vs Chelsea
The Blues are in a declining phase of form right now. Gonzalo Higuain opened his account for Chelsea but will likely not be enough to beat Manchester City, who have the title in sights again. Maurizio Sarri will be expecting a big game performance from Eden Hazard, who will be the man City will look to keep quiet.
The entire result might just come down to Sarri’s tactics. Sarri-ball worked once against Manchester City. Can it do the trick again?
1. Manchester City to win @ 1.50
2. Both Teams to Score – YES @ 1.75
1. Sergio Aguero to score 2 or more @ 3.00
Tottenham are hosting a Leicester side that are in genuine danger of getting lost in the lower half of the mid table. There have been a couple of high scoring games between the two sides and we could expect the same on Sunday. Southampton should continue their upsurge in form and fortunes with a win over Cardiff while Burnley’s form guide suggests they should be too hot to handle for Brighton.
1. Crystal Palace to beat West Ham @ 2.10
2. Southampton to beat Cardiff @ 1.75
3. Brighton vs Burnley – Full Time Result – Draw or Burnley @ 1.80
4. Tottenham vs Leicester – Both Teams to Score – YES @ 1.80
1. Burnley to beat Brighton @ 4.20
2. Wolves vs Newcastle United – Full Time Result – Draw @ 3.75
3. Everton to beat Watford @ 3.10
