Premier League Betting Preview – Match Week 7

Our expert tipster has cast their eye over another exciting weekend of Premier League Fixtures just days out from the international break. He’s picked some of the best bets available on NetBet Sport football odds page.

Man United to beat Everton – 20/43

It was not a good day at the office last time out for Manchester United in the Premier League, but they got back on track against Villareal in the Champions League during the week. However, both performances were not great at all, and United were saved from another poor result by a late, late Cristiano Ronaldo winner against the Spaniards. They should have enough about them to beat Everton at Old Trafford, but they have yet to show it over the last few weeks, so take this pick with a grain of salt. Maybe the draw at 16/5 isn’t a bad pick.

Chelsea to beat Southampton – 10/27

They were beaten last weekend by Manchester City, but realistically that won’t hurt Chelsea too much and we expect them to be back on track when they face Southampton this time around. To do that, they’ll need Romelu Lukaku to get back on the scoresheet, and we’d imagine that there will be a lot of work being done on breaking forward early to attempt to overwhelm a Southampton defence that has given in to pressure so far this year. We’re going for a win at Stamford Bridge, which will further compound the issues happening at St Mary’s.

Leeds to draw with Watford – 29/10

Watford have looked surprisingly impressive in their last few outings against Newcastle and Norwich, while Marcelo Bielsa’s troops have flattered to deceive thus far. It’s hard to pick between these two teams, and given how much they both fancy a draw, we reckon that between the price and the form of each of these sides, we like the draw at 29/10. Certainly a Watford win at Elland Road with the price of 3/1 seems interesting as well, while we don’t really fancy Leeds at less than evens.

Wolves to draw with Newcastle – 29/10

It’s time for both Wolves and Newcastle to step up now, and they’ll both be going into this game at Molineux feeling that a result here is a necessity. For that reason, this could end up being one of the more exciting games of the weekend. The Toon got a decent draw with Leeds before another with Watford, while Wolves managed to scrape a really impressive 1-0 win away from home against Southampton, but we’re going to go for a draw in this one because it’s too hard to pick the winner.

Norwich to beat Burnley – 3/1

You’re looking at two teams this season who have ultimately really struggled to get going. But we just can’t believe that any team beating Burnley, home or away, this season are priced at such a huge score as 3/1. Norwich have had some really tough days at the office this season, as have Burnley, but we believe that they have what it takes to get the win in this one and perhaps begin a run to steer clear of the relegation zone by the end of the year.

Brighton to draw with Arsenal – 43/20

Another one where you think ‘who’d have pictured these odds when the season started?’ No, your eyes will not deceive you if you head over to the page for this match, Brighton and Hove Albion are in a pick ‘em with Arsenal. Mikel Arteta’s men had a disaster start to the season, but finally appear to be coming into their own this year with some big performances culminating in a tremendous 3-1 win over local rivals Spurs at the Emirates last weekend. We’re going to pick a draw here, which may be fanciful, but Brighton have also had an impressive start of their own this year, and despite drawing with Crystal Palace last time out, we can see them grabbing a decent result here.

Leicester to beat Crystal Palace – 13/10

You’d have to say, on paper, that Leicester City should be heading home with three points at Selhurst Park, wouldn’t you? Well, perhaps not. Palace held this season’s surprise package; Brighton, to a 1-1 draw last weekend, and they’ve taken a few solid scalps already, so there’s no reason to believe that they can’t ultimately beat Leicester City. However, we have to pick the visitors in this one, simply based on what they have shown us thus far and the players they have at their disposal.

Tottenham to beat Aston Villa – 11/10

This match is so much closer than it has any right to be, but after their respective weekends last time out, these are intriguing prices. Arsenal absolutely battered Spurs from pillar to post at the Emirates last weekend in the North London derby, which luckily they bounced back from with a massive 5-1 win over Mura on Thursday night. However, Villa are coming off a brilliant away win over Manchester United, so there is a real potential for an upset here. However, we’re going to stick with Spurs, particularly with Harry Kane confident after a hat-trick, with a big international break coming up.

West Ham to draw with Brentford – 49/20

The 17/5 price on a Brentford win, based solely on what we have seen over these past six weeks of matches, seems unbelievably harsh. As long as bookies keep offering these long odds, you can keep taking big profits from them, assuming the new-boys can keep up their results. However, we can’t predict anything less than a draw for the Hammers at the London stadium, especially given the defensive holes they have, that could be exposed like Liverpool’s were last weekend.

Man City to beat Liverpool – 7/5

It’s first v second in this Sunday’s big game when table-toppers Liverpool play host to second-place Manchester City in what is likely to be a title race six pointer as the season progresses. Not that league positions matter too much at this stage of the season, Liverpool have had a strong start to the year and find themselves a point ahead of the baying pack of City, Chelsea, Manchester United, Everton and Brighton. Jurgen Klopp’s team have yet to lose in their opening six games, winning four just like the teams mentioned but picking up two draws, where the rest have a draw and a loss each already. Klopp’s team, particularly in last week’s dreadful defensive outing against Brentford, have shown little indication that they could be the new “invincibles”, but a loss this weekend would seal the deal. Our NetBet win probability counter has this one as a relatively even clash, with City slightly favoured at 40% and the hosts at 33%, with a draw also pretty close at 27%.

If you enter these results as a huge 10-fold acca on our NetBet Sport football odds page, you could stand to win almost £79,000 off of just a £5 bet should all of our predictions come through.
