2016/2017 EPL Week 34 Preview

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusmail

We are now into the last month of the 2016/2017 English Premier League season!

Title contenders Chelsea and Tottenham are not in action this weekend due to FA Cup Semi-Final commitments and there are only six games across the weekend, but there are still a number of key clashes as we reach the final stages of the season.

There is plenty of interest in every single game this weekend and you can find ourĀ 2016/2017 English Premier League week 34 tips below.

Bournemouth Vs Middlesbrough

Sunday 23 April, 12:00am, Goldsands Stadium

Bournemouth 4 - Middlesbrough 0

Middlesbrough desperately need to take the three points from this clash, but it is Bournemouth that will start as clear favourites.

Bournemouth have not won a game for a month, but they have a strong record as home favourites and they have won five of their past nine games in this scenario for a clear profit.

It has been an eternity since Middlesbrough won an English Premier League game and they are now six points away from safety.

Winning away from home has been very difficult for Middlesbrough and they have won just one game on the road this season.

These are the types of games that Bournemouth have generally won this season and they should be able to heap some more misery on Middlesbrough.

Hull City Vs Watford

Sunday 23 April, 12:00am, The KC Stadium

Hull City 2 - Watford 0

This is a huge game for Hull City as a win will ensure that they remain out of the relegation zone for another week.

Hull City have been able to turn The KC Stadium into some kind of a fortress under Marco Silva and this really is their chance to return to winning form.

The Tigers have won three of their four games as home favourites so far this season and they are unbeaten in this scenario.

Watford did Hull City a favour when they beat Swansea City last weekend and they have now won three of their past four English Premier League games.

The Hornets have only won three of their past 16 games as away underdogs, but they have made a profit in this scenario.

It is Hull City that really do go into this clash with far more to play for and I am backing them to come away with the three points.

Swansea City Vs Stoke City

Sunday 23 April, 12:00am, Liberty Stadium

Swansea City 2 - Stoke City 0

Swansea City are another team that simply must win this weekend.

They are currently two points behind Hull City and they will go into this clash as favourites, despite the fact they have lost their past three games.

Liberty Stadium has been a happy hunting ground for Swansea City this season and they have won four of their past nine games as home favourites for a narrow profit.

Stoke City returned to winning form with a quality performance against Hull City, but their record away from home really does leave something to be desired.

They have won only one of their past 16 games as away underdogs for a clear loss and they are at the stage of the season where they have very little to play for.

Swansea City should win this clash to keep the relegation battle as interesting as ever.

West Ham United Vs Everton

Sunday 23 April, 12:00am, Olympic Stadium

West Ham 0 - Everton 0

West Ham have the home ground advantage in this clash, but it is Everton that will start this clash as clear favourites.

Everton continued their goal-scoring ways with a quality victory over Burnley and they really have played some scintillating football this season.

One issue for Everton has been their form away from Goodison Park and they have only won three of their past nine games as away favourites. for a clear loss.

West Ham dropped points against Sunderland last weekend and they are a team that continue to struggle for consistency.

They have won only one of their past six games as home underdogs for a clear loss and they have been a losing betting play across just about every metric.

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

Burnley Vs Manchester United

Sunday 23 April, 11:15pm, Turf Moor

Burnley 0 - Manchester United 2

Manchester United set the title race alight with their win over Chelsea last weekend and they will go into this clash with Burnley as clear favourites.

The Red Devils have actually had far more success away from home than they have had at Old Trafford this season and they have won ten of their past 14 games as away favourites for a clear profit.

Burnley were a touch unlucky against Everton last weekend and they return to Turf Moor where they have had so much success this season.

They have won eight of their past 13 games as home underdogs for a massive profit and they have proven to be extremely tough to break down in front of their home fans.

Burnley will be in for the fight and this will be an intriguing clash, but it is tough to find any real betting value.

Liverpool Vs Crystal Palace

Monday 24 April, 1:30am, Anfield

Liverpool 1 - Crystal Palace 2

Crystal Palace have been somewhat of a bogey team for Liverpool in recent years, but it is Liverpool that will still start this clash as clear favourites.

Liverpool have not lost in the English Premier League for almost two months and they have done enough to take the three points from their past two games with Stoke City and West Bromwich Albion – without looking particularly impressive.

Liverpool have lost only one game at Anfield this season and they have won 12 games as home favourites for a clear profit.

Crystal Palace played out an entertaining goal with Leicester City last weekend and they really have played some excellent football in recent weeks.

They have won five of their past seven games and they have scored in all of their English Premier League fixtures since they went down to Stoke on February 12.

Liverpool should be able to come away with three points, but they won’t have it their own way and Crystal Palace are more than capable of scoring.
