2016/2017

It is always exciting when two of the London-based clubs in the English Premier League do battle and that will be the case when Chelsea host Tottenham at Stamford Bridge this weekend.

Manchester United have issues dealing with West Ham last season and they will face off at Old Trafford, while the newly-promoted Burnley have a tough assignment against Manchester City.

There are betting angles to be found in every in the English Premier League this weekend and you can find our recommended bets below.

Burnley Vs Manchester City

Saturday 26 November, 11:30pm, Turf Moor

Burnley 1 - Manchester City 2

Manchester City are the second shortest-priced favourites in the English Premier League this weekend and the market suggests that they should have no problems accounting for their rivals.

Manchester City returned to winning form against Crystal Palace last weekend, but their record as away favourites is still a touch unconvincing – they have won seven of their past 15 games in this scenario for a loss.

Burnley produced arguably their worst performance of the season when they were flogged by West Bromwich Albion on Thursday morning and a repeat of that effort could lead to a very ugly scoreline.

Burnley have generally produced their best performances against the best teams in the English Premier League as they are happy to concede possession and simply defend for 90 minutes.

They did beat Manchester City when they last met and their record as home underdogs is a hugely profitable 4-0-2.

We have seen Burnley record big upsets already this season and at $11 I am willing to take the gamble that they can produce another boil over.

Leicester City Vs Middlesbrough

Sunday 27 November, 1:00am, Goldsands Stadium

Leicester City 2 - Middlesbrough 2

Leicester City have lost two games on the trot, but they will still go into this clash with Middlesbrough as clear favourites.

Leicester City will be on the quick back-up following their Champions League clash with Club Brugge and it is fair to say that they have struggled during their English Premier League title defence.

The Foxes have still won nine of their past 14 games as home favourites for a clear profit and they have performed well on the quick back-up.

Middlesbrough were far from disgraced against Chelsea last weekend and their recent form has been fairly good.

They have only won one of their six games as away underdogs, but they have taken a point from four of these clashes and their defence has been strong since their return to the top flight.

Middlesbrough are more than capable of taking something from this clash and the $3.40 on offer for the stalemate is excellent value.

Liverpool Vs Sunderland

Sunday 27 November, 1:00am, Anfield

Liverpool 2 - Sunderland 0

Liverpool failed to get the job done against Southampton last weekend, but they are still extremely short-priced favourites to take the three point from their clash with Sunderland.

Liverpool have lost just the one game in the English Premier League this season and it is tough to see that changing, but it is tough to get them as short as their current quote – they are 9-7-1 as home favourites over the past 12 months for a narrow loss.

Sunderland have got their season on track with wins over both Bournemouth and Hull City, but they obviously face a far tougher assignment against Liverpool.

They have one three of their past 17 games as away underdogs for a clear loss and it is tough to see them being able to match it with the talent of Liverpool.

Liverpool should be able to get the job done comfortably, but there is no value at their current odds.

Swansea Vs Crystal Palace

Sunday 27 November, 1:00am, Liberty Stadium

Swansea City 5 - Crystal Palace 4

This is set to be one of the most hard-fought games of the weekend and there is very little between these two teams in betting.

Swansea will go into this clash as narrow favourites after their draw with Everton, but it has still be over two months since they have recorded a win.

The Welsh outfit have won four of their past ten games as home favourites for a loss and they are a tough team to back with any confidence.

Crystal Palace have now suffered five defeats on the trot and they have serious problems at the back.

They have won three of their past 16 games as away underdogs for a clear loss, but they have been able to take at least a point from seven of these clashes.

Four of the past five games between these two sides have ended as draws and the $3.25 for another stalemate can’t be ignored.

Back The Draw @ $3.25

Hull City Vs West Bromwich Albion

Sunday 27 November, 1:00am, The KC Stadium

Hull City 1 - West Bromwich Albion 1

West Bromwich Albion produced their best performance of the season to date when they dismantled Burnley on Tuesday morning and they will go into this clash as clear favourites.

This will be the first time that West Bromwich Albion have started a game as away favourites over the past 12 months and their record away from home is not particularly strong.

Hull City have lost seven of their past eight games and they were very poor against Sunderland last weekend.

They have won two of their past six games as home underdogs for a clear profit and West Bromwich Albion are the sort of side that they could be able to frustrate.

Winning back-to-back games has proven to be a real issue for West Bromwich Albion and Hull City can return to winning form.

Chelsea Vs Tottenham Hotspur

Sunday 27 November, 4:30am, Stamford Bridge

Chelsea 2 - Tottenham Hotspur 1

This is easily the game of the round and could prove crucial to the make-up of the top four at the end of the weekend.

Chelsea have been nothing short of outstanding in the past two months and they have now won six games in a row – scoring 17 goals and conceding zero in the process.

It is no surprise that they will go into this clash as clear favourites, but their record as home favourites over the past 12 months is still an unconvincing 7-8-3.

Tottenham maintained their unbeaten start to the season with a 3-2 victory over West Ham and their record against their title rivals so far this season has been excellent.

They have won two of their past six games as away underdogs for a narrow profit, but more importantly they have drawn four games in this scenario.

Tottenham are capable of mixing it with this high-flying Chelsea and the draw appeals at the current price of $3.60.

Back The Draw @ $3.60

Watford Vs Stoke City

Sunday 27 November, 11:00pm, Vicarage Road

Watford 0 - Stoke City 1

Watford take strong form into this clash with Stoke City and are set to start this game as clear favourites.

The Hornets bounced back from their heavy defeat at the hands of Liverpool to beat Leicester last weekend and they continue to be one of the most underrated sides in the English Premier League.

Watford have won four of their past eight games as home favourites for a narrow loss, but they have won just one game in this scenario.

Stoke City had their unbeaten run ended by Bournemouth last weekend and they face their toughest challenge in over a month against Watford.

Stoke have won just three of their past 15 games as away underdogs, but they were able to beat Watford away from home 12 months ago.

Watford have more quality than Stoke City in key positions and they should be able to make it two wins on the trot.

Back Watford To Win @ $2.40

Arsenal Vs Bournemouth

Monday 28 November, 1:15am, Emirates Stadium

Arsenal 3 - Bournemouth 1

Arsenal must beat Bournemouth to secure their position in the top four and they will start this clash as clear favourites.

Arsenal go into this clash on the back of hard-fought draws against both Tottenham and Manchester United and there is no doubt that Bournemouth are no at that level.

The Gunners have won 12 of their past 18 games as home favourites for a profit and they kept Bournemouth scoreless in their two meetings last season.

Bournemouth returned to winning form against Stoke City last weekend, but they obviously face a much tougher challenge against Arsenal this weekend.

The Cherries have won four of their past 15 games as away underdogs for a clear profit and their has been plenty to like about their defence so far this season.

The market looks to have got this game just about right and I am happy to stay out of this clash from a betting perspective.

Manchester United Vs West Ham United

Sunday 27 November, 1:00am, Old Trafford

Manchester United 1 - West Ham United 1

West Ham have been something of a bogey team for Manchester United in recent seasons and this should be a very interesting clash.

Manchester United have won just one of their past six games, but they will still start this clash as clear favourites.

The Red Devils have won nine of their past 18 games as home favourites for a loss and they have not beaten West Ham since 2014.

West Ham were not disgraced against Tottenham last weekend and their recent form has been better than it looks on paper.

West Ham have won only three of their past 15 games as away underdogs, but they have been able to take a point from six games in this scenario.

Manchester United are well under the odds at their current price and the $2.75 available for the West Ham and Draw Double Chance is outstanding value.

Southampton Vs Everton

Sunday 27 November, 1:00am, St Mary's Stadium

Southampton 1 - Everton 0

This is one of the most interesting games of the weekend and it is Southampton that are set to start the game as clear favourites.

Southampton have not won a game in over a month, but they did produce one of their best performances of the season to take a point from their clash with Liverpool last weekend.

Southampton have won eight of their past 13 games as home favourites for a profit and their record against Everton in this scenario is strong.

Everton have gone to pieces following their strong start to the season and they have won just one of their past seven games.

They have not won any of their past ten games as away underdogs and based on their recent performances they will struggle to match it with Southampton.
