Premier League Betting Preview – Match Week 29

Our expert tipster at NetBet has previewed the upcoming round of fixtures, including a top four clash between Manchester United and Spurs, as well as a relegation six-pointer between Leeds and Norwich. We’ve picked out the best Premier League bets available on NetBet Sport’s football odds page to help with your accumulators this weekend.

Liverpool to beat Brighton – 20/41

After spending the majority of this campaign as one of the more consistent sides, Brighton’s form has taken a dive in recent weeks. They have lost four on the bounce, three of which were games you would expect them to take points from. Their persistent goal scoring issues have resurfaced once more, with the Seagulls netting just once in their last four, with the only goal scored by centre-half Lewis Dunk. An inability to put the ball in the net does not bode well for an impending visit from Liverpool – Jurgen Klopp’s side have scored 71 goals already this season. The Reds are inevitably going to find the net, but Graham Potter’s side don’t look like they will have a reply.

Brentford to draw with Burnley – 11/5

This should be an interesting match-up between two massively contrasting styles. The return of Ivan Toney has breathed life back into a Brentford that had been sliding towards the bottom with no win in eight league games. His hat-trick last weekend might just have been in the shift in momentum that Thomas Frank’s side needed. They will host a Burnley side that haven’t lost in their last three away games, knowing a win could lift them out of the bottom three. Any hopes Sean Dyche has of keeping Burnley in the top flight could boil down to Maxwel Cornet’s form. Although Wout Weghorst has contributed well to overall play, he has not found goals easy to come by since arriving from Wolfsburg. This could go either way, but Brentford will probably be the happier of the two to settle for a point.

Man United to beat Tottenham – 11/10

This game is huge in the context of Champions League qualification. Anything other than three points would all but end United’s top four hopes, and defeat for Spurs would put a dent in their chances of catching their North London rivals. Despite being humbled in the Manchester derby last weekend, it was only United’s second league defeat in 16 games. The form of Antonio Conte’s side has been far more erratic, following up a mammoth 3-2 win at the Etihad with a lacklustre 1-0 defeat at Turf Moor. They were back to winning ways on Monday night with an emphatic 5-0 win over Frank Lampard’s Everton, but it’s difficult to see them showing up for two games in a row. It’s sure to be a nervy affair, but United have improved enough under Ralf Rangnick to get the job done.

Chelsea to beat Newcastle – 20/67

Newcastle have been in sensational form since the turn of the year, but a win at Stamford Bridge still looks unlikely. Chelsea have won six consecutive games at home and have not lost at the Bridge since a 1-0 defeat to Man City in September. There is still a chance Thomas Tuchel’s side get dragged into the top four battle should they take their foot off the gas, but a couple of wins will surely secure their status as the best of the rest. The Magpies will have a good go at Chelsea, but the Blues are far more defensively secure than Newcastle’s recent opponents. There is a plenty of drama surrounding the club at the moment, but we wouldn’t expect that to translate onto the pitch.

Wolves to beat Everton – 23/10

The dream of Champions League football will seem a distant memory for Wolves fans, after Bruno Lage’s side fell to three successive defeats. They will travel to Merseyside to face an Everton team in all kinds of trouble. Not only are the Toffees being threatened with a points deduction due to financial breaches, but Lampard has also failed to improve his team’s performances. There was an air of hope after the new manager signed Donny van de Beek and Dele Alli, but the former is yet to impress, and the latter is still waiting for his first start. A 5-0 drubbing at the hands of Spurs was Everton’s third defeat in a row without scoring a goal. Lampard could be out of his depth with this project.

Leeds to beat Norwich – 4/7

This is quite simply a must win for both teams. Norwich are already in a precarious position, but defeat this weekend could all but seal their fate. Leeds are also in trouble, especially if results go against the, but there have been positives since Jesse Marsch arrived. Leeds were the better team in their 1-0 defeat to Leicester, and some better finishing could see them five points clear of the bottom three. It’s a battle between the league’s two worst defences at Elland Road, and Leeds look to have enough firepower to outscore the Canaries.

Southampton to beat Watford – 10/17

Depending on other results, defeat at St. Mary’s this weekend could spell the end for Roy Hodgson’s side. They have only beaten Southampton once since 2008, and will find themselves up against one of the league’s standout performers this season. The Saints have lost just once at home this season ahead of this week’s fixtures against Newcastle and Watford, winning five of their last six. Che Adams is on track to have his most productive individual campaign for the club, assisted by the tireless running of Armando Broja and the creative exploits of James Ward-Prowse. Watford will have to be at their best to pick up three points.

West Ham to draw with Aston Villa – 9/4

After a run of indifferent form, Villa got back to winning ways with a comfortable 2-0 win over Brighton and a 4-0 hammering of a strong Southampton side. Philippe Coutinho has been unplayable at times since his return, registering three goals and three assists in seven outings. The Brazilian has added a spark of creativity and flair that had been missing since the departure of Jack Grealish, and it will be interesting to see if the Barcelona man will pledge his future to Villa on a permanent basis come the end of the season. West Ham are in a strong position to play European football again next season. They don’t lose too many, but Steven Gerrard’s side will certainly cause some problems.

Arsenal to beat Leicester – 20/41

Mikel Arteta’s side have turned it on when those around them were starting to falter. They are favourites to claim the fourth Champions League spot after four consecutive wins, and a victory over Leicester would take the pressure off their upcoming fixture against Liverpool. The Gunners will host a Leicester side that might be turning their attentions to Europe. The Foxes have won their last two league games, but their focus will likely be on games against Stade Rennes in the Conference League, with their Premier League safety all but confirmed. It should be an exciting game, but one which Arsenal appear to have the edge in.

Man City to beat Crystal Palace – 2/7

Palace are one of only two teams to hand City a league defeat since October, but Pep Guardiola’s side have won 22 of 26 games in all competitions since that loss. The stakes are at their highest after a 3-2 loss against Spurs left the door slightly ajar for a title-chasing Liverpool. Expect the visitors to be at their free-flowing best at Selhurst Park. The Eagles have lost just once in their last eight, and victory over Wolves has gone a long way in securing their Premier League status. They are one of the most difficult teams to paly against on their day, but there is too much on the line for City to be at anything other than their best.
