2016/2017 EPL Week 11 Preview

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusmail

The rivalry between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur is one of the fiercest in the English Premier League and the two sides will do battle in what is clearly the match of the weekend.

The other big guns are all set to start this clash as clear favourites, but we saw last year that anything can happen in the English Premier League and there are a number of potential upsets this weekend.

As always there are plenty of exciting matches in the English Premier League this weekend and you can find all of our recommended bets below.

Bournemouth Vs Sunderland

Sunday 6 November, 1:00am, Goldsands Stadium

Bournemouth 1 - Sunderland 2

Bournemouth went down to Middlesbrough last weekend, but they are clear favourites to get the job done against Sunderland this weekend.

Bournemouth have won four of their past 11 games as home favourites for a clear loss and they have been tough to trust in this scenario.

Sunderland are still chasing their first win of the season after going down 4-1 to Arsenal last weekend.

They are almost impossible to trust from a betting perspective and the fact that they have won just three of their past 17 games as away underdogs does not inspire any confidence.

This is a match that the market looks to have got just about right and I am more than happy to stay out.

Burnley Vs Crystal Palace

Sunday 6 November, 1:00am, Turf Moor

Burnley 3 - Crystal Palace 2

Burnley took a point from their recent clash with Manchester United, but it is Crystal Palace that will go into this clash as clear favourites.

Crystal Palace suffered their third straight loss to Liverpool last weekend and their record as away favourites does not inspire a great deal of confidence – they are 0-0-2 in this scenario.

Burnley toughed it out in impressive fashion against Manchester United and this season they have a simply outstanding record as home underdogs.

They have won three of their five games in this scenario and they are well over the odds at their current quote of $3.20.

Manchester City Vs Middlesbrough

Sunday 6 November, 1:00am, Etihad Stadium

Manchester City 1 - Middlesbrough 1

Manchester City returned to winning form with a dominant performance against West Bromwich Albion and they are clear favourites to get the job done against Middlesbrough.

They have won ten of their past 18 games as home favourites for a loss and it really is tough to get them as short as their current price.

Middlesbrough picked up a crucial three points against Bournemouth, but this is obviously a much tougher challenge and they have won just one of their past five games as away underdogs.

Manchester City should be able to get the job done comfortably, but I can’t possibly back them at their current quote.

No Bet

West Ham United Vs Stoke City

Sunday 6 November, 1:00am, Olympic Stadium

West Ham 1 - Stoke City 1

West Ham continue to struggle at Olympic Stadium, but they will still go into this clash as clear favourites.

The Hammers have been a disappointing 5-5-2 as home favourites over the past 12 months and they have been particularly tough to trust in front of their home fans this season.

Stoke City have recorded three wins on the trot and have rebounded in a very big way over the past month.

They have taken at least a point from eight of their past 17 games as away underdogs and they have been a profitable betting scenario in this situation.

Stoke City are well over the odds at their current quote and are one of the best value bets of the weekend.

Chelsea Vs Everton

Sunday 6 November, 4:30am, Stamford Bridge

Chelsea 5 - Everton 0

Chelsea are another team that have found their best form in the past 12 months and they will go into this clash as clear favourites.

Chelsea haven’t conceded a goal in the English Premier League for over a month, but their record as home favourites over the past 12 months is still a poor 7-8-3.

Everton returned to winning form with a confidence performance against West Ham and they were able to beat Chelsea comfortably last season.

The problem for Everton is that they have not won any of their past 10 games as away underdogs, but they have been able to take a point from six of these games.

I expect that this will be a fairly low-scoring affair and the $4.20 currently available for the draw stands out at the current price.

Arsenal Vs Tottenham Hotspur

Sunday 6 November 11:00pm, Emirates Stadium

Arsenal 1 - Tottenham 1

The North London Derby is always one of the highlights of the English Premier League season and this is set to be a particularly exciting affair.

Arsenal recorded their seventh win from their past eight starts when they beat Middlesbrough and they really are in excellent form.

They have improved their record as home favourites to 12-4-2 for a profit and they have been a profitable play against Tottenham in this scenario.

Tottenham played out their third draw on the trot against Leicester City last weekend and they desperately need a victory to stay in touch with the league leaders.

Spurs have won two of their past six games as away underdogs for a narrow profit, but they have drawn four of them and backing the draw in all their games this season has been a profitable play.

This should be a fairly tense affair and the $3.40 for the draw is definitely the value.

Hull City Vs Southampton

Monday 7 November, 1:15am, The KC Stadium

Hull City 2 - Southampton 1

Hull City suffered their sixth straight loss on the trot last weekend and they will go into this clash as clear underdogs.

The lack of depth in this squad is really starting to show and they have now won just one of their past five games as home underdogs for a loss.

Southampton had their unbeaten run ended by Chelsea last weekend, but they have an excellent chance to return to winning form.

They have won four of their past eight games as home favourites for a profit and surely they should prove too strong for Hull City.

Liverpool Vs Watford

Monday 7 November, 1:15am, Anfield

Liverpool 6 - Watford 1

This should be one of the most entertaining games of the week.

Liverpool have been in truly stunning form in the past couple of months and it is no surprise that they will start this clash as clear favourites.

Despite their recent form, they have still be a losing betting proposition as home favourites in the past 12 months and it is tough to get them as short as their current price.

Watford did enough to take the three points from their clash with Hull and they have now not lost for over a month and a half.

I have said before that they are one of the most underrated sides in the English Premier and they have taken at least a point eight of their past 17 games for a clear profit.

This match will be closer than the current market suggests and the Watford/Draw Double Chance is outstanding value.

Swansea City Vs Manchester United

Monday 7 November, 2:00am, Liberty Stadium

Swansea City 1 - Manchester United 3

It feels like I say it every single week, but the pressure is really on Jose Mourinho and this Manchester United.

They were unable to beat Burnley last weekend and they were beaten by Fenerbache in the Europa League earlier in the week.

Manchester United will go into this clash as clear favourites, but they have won just four of their past 12 games as away favourites for a clear loss.

Swansea take equally as poor form into this clash after losing to Stoke City.

They have won two of their past seven games as home underdogs for a loss and they are a team that is extremely tough to trust from a betting perspective.

This is a game that I am keen to stay far, far away from betting wise.

Leicester City Vs West Bromwich Albion

Monday 7 November, 3:00am, King Power Stadium

Leicester City 1 - West Bromwich Albion 2

Leicester City have struggled for consistency in the English Premier League this season, but they will still go into this clash with West Bromwich Albion as clear favourites.

Leicester City have won ten of their past 14 games as home favourites for a clear profit and they look to have a clear class edge over this West Brom outfit.

West Bromwich Albion were no match for a rampant Manchester City last weekend and they look likely to struggle again.

They have won just two of their past 19 games as away underdogs for a big loss and Leicester City look like a very safe bet to get the job done.
