Gameweek 4 Premier League Tips and Predictions Preview

Saturday 13th September 2014

12:45 – Arsenal v Man City

After the international break the Premier League begins with this clash of titans. Previously met at the community shield in August where Arsenal came out 3-0 winners. Ramsey and Jovetic are injury doubts at the Emirates but depth of squad from both teams should cover this. Both teams having already dropped points this season we expect this to be a tight affair.

Prediction: 1-1
Tip: Both Teams to Score: YES @ 7/10 (Bet Now – Bet365)

15:00 – Chelsea v Swansea

Both of these teams have been on fire this season winning 3 out of 3 games. With Chelsea’s free scoring team and Swansea’s tight defence this is expected to be a tight match. Although we expect Chelsea could edge this match, there is really no value in the 1.30 home win.

Prediction: 2-1
Tip: Both Teams to Score: YES @ 5/4 (Bet Now – BetVictor)

15:00 – Crystal Palace v Burnley

Both teams sitting at the bottom of the Premier League but have had very tough starts in terms of fixture difficulty. Burnley are good defensively, however Crystal Palace seem to have the edge in firepower with the likes of Gayle, Puncheon, Chamakh and Zaha. We’re going for a Crystal Palace win.

Prediction: 2-0
Tip: Home Win @ 5/4 (Bet Now – Bet365)

15:00 – Southampton v Newcastle

This looks to be an exciting line-up with two new look teams showing flair upfront. Both teams have shown they can score goals however they also leak goals defensively. 2 out of their last 5 meetings have been over 3.5 goals and their current line-up makes 3/1 great value.

Prediction: 2-2
Tip: Over 3.5 Goals @ 3/1 (Bet Now – BetVictor)

15:00 – Stoke v Leicester

Newly promoted Leicester are struggling just above the drop zone in 16th, whilst Stoke are doing slightly better in mid table. Both teams have kept games tight this season and Stoke are notoriously defensive at home. This leads to our prediction of under 2.5 total goals.

Prediction: 1-1
Tip: Under 2.5 Goals @ 8/13 (Bet Now – BetVictor)

15:00 – Sunderland v Tottenham

Both teams coming off the back of a loss before the international break will be looking to put things right. Tottenham’s depth of squad seems hard to look past when predicting this match, however Sunderland have made a habit of getting results against top teams recently. We expect Tottenham to edge this one with their last 2 meetings away to Sunderland ending 1-2.

Prediction: 1-2
Tip: Both Teams to Score: YES @ 4/5 (Bet Now – Bet365)

15:00 – West Brom v Everton

West Brom and Everton surprisingly low in the table this far, 18th and 17th respectively. Everton have shown class but also the inability to close out games. With the quality in Everton’s squad they will be desperate to get their first win of the season and should have enough to put away a mediocre West Brom.

Prediction: 1-2
Tip: Away Win @ 6/5 (Bet Now – Bet365)

17:30 – Liverpool v Aston Villa

Both teams performing well this season, especially Villa sitting in third. Daniel Sturridge has been ruled out because of injury which will most likely work against Liverpool. Luckily they have Mario Balotelli ready to go so we do expect both teams to score. In Villa’s last 5 visits to Anfield, Liverpool have only won once.

Prediction: 2-2
Tip: Over 3.5 Goals @ 11/8 (Bet Now – Bet365)

Sunday 14th September 2014

16:00 – Man Utd v QPR

Man United’s new look team should all be available to play in a must win game against QPR, the likes of Falcao should be far too strong for QPR defence and we can only see this match going one way. QPR won their last game but were at home and lucky to come away with all 3 points.

Prediction: 3-0
Tip: Home Win @ 3/10 (Bet Now – PaddyPower)

Monday 15th September 2014

20:00 – Hull v West Ham

This mid table clash doesn’t sound the most exciting on paper. Historical this fixture is usually won by the odd goal and we’re predicting it will happen again. We’re tipping Hull City to win by the odd goal, taking advantage of being in front of a home crowd.

Prediction: 1-0
Tip: Under 2.5 Goals @ 8/13 (Bet Now – Bet365)

Test

Gameweek 3 Premier League Tips and Predictions Preview

Football betting tips, predictions and a preview of Gameweek 3 fixtures in the Premier League. The matches will be played across Saturday 30th August and Sunday 31st August.

Saturday 30th August Football Tips

Burnley v Man United – 12:45 (LIVE on BT Sport 1)

Many punters will naturally exclude the early game from any midweek accumulators as we know how frustrating it can be when your accumulator busts on the first leg. Although Man United’s squad still has a lot of work to be done, Burnley have lost their last 2 home games and should be exploited by the class of Rooney, Van Persie, Mata and new signing Di Maria. United still have defensive issues with Rojo a doubt to receive a work permit in time but overall Man United should have enough firepower to edge this must win game.

Prediction: Burnley 1 – 2 Man United
TIP: Away win @ 4/6 (Bet Now – Bet365)

Man City v Stoke – 15:00

Man City should see this one out comfortably combining Man City’s great home form with Stoke’s poor away form last season. Stoke also had a midweek Capital One Cup match against Portsmouth compared with Man City’s rest. With the likes of Aguero looking sharp again a home win could be a safe bet.

Prediction: Man City 3 – 1 Stoke City
TIP: Over 3.5 Goals @ 6/4 (Bet Now – BetVictor)

Newcastle v Crystal Palace – 15:00

Newcastle’s new look team looks an exciting prospect with the likes of Remy Cabella. Although Crystal Palace have brought in new manager Neil Warnock it could be a step too far to beat Newcastle on their home turf. Newcastle have won 4 out of their last 5 home games against Crystal Palace and we expect the trend to continue on Saturday.

Prediction: Newcastle 2 – 0 Crystal Palace
TIP: Home Win @ 3/4 (Bet Now – Bet365)

QPR v Sunderland – 15:00

Both sides seem to be struggling this year with neither side able to record a Premier League win. QPR seem to be under-performing with the firepower they have in their squad. With the likes of Remy, Ferdinand, Fer and Phillips they may prove tough to beat at home this weekend. Their last meeting at Loftus road saw QPR come out 3-1 winners.

Prediction: QPR 2 – 1 Sunderland
TIP: Home Win @ 6/4 (Bet Now – PaddyPower)

Swansea v West Brom – 15:00

Swansea will look to build on their perfect Premier League record this season with 2 out of 2 wins whilst West Brom haven’t lost a game either, drawing twice. Swansea’s starting 11 does look a class above West Brom and with the baggies going 120minutes against Oxford midweek won’t help things.

Prediction: Swansea 2 – 1 West Brom
TIP: Home Win @ 10/11 (Bet Now – BetVictor)

West Ham v Southampton – 15:00

West Ham clearly have a strengthened squad since last season whilst it was feared Southampton were in melt-down shipping off their stars to Premier League rivals before restocking with some quality names. Both teams have shown quality so far this season and we thought Southampton were unlucky to go away empty handed at Anfield in their first game of the season. We can see this being quite an even game overall.

Prediction: West Ham 1 – 1 Southampton
TIP: Both teams to score: Yes @ 4/5 (Bet Now – Bet365)

Everton v Chelsea – 17:30 (LIVE on Sky Sports 1)

Everton showed real class to go 2 nil up against Arsenal last game but clearly were fatigued towards the end of the game which contributed vastly to the late Arsenal comeback. With both teams having no midweek match this should lead to an exciting match up. Diego Costa is a big doubt, as well as Torres who could be leaving for AC Milan. Having said this they still have enough firepower throughout the team to score a few goals.

Prediction: Everton 2 – 2 Chelsea
TIP: Both teams to score: Yes @ 20/23 (Bet Now – BetVictor)

Sunday 31st August Football Tips

Aston Villa v Hull – 13:30

Both of these teams have looked relatively solid this season with both conceding just one goal each so far in two matches. Hull however had a Europa League match as recently as Thursday and could show some fatigue. Paul Lambert’s side seem to be maturing and should be boosted by the return of Charles N’Zogbia this season. Hull’s last meeting at Villa Park saw them come out 3-1 losers and we’re also going for an Aston Villa win.

Prediction: Aston Villa 2 – 1 Hull
TIP: Home Win @ 11/8 (Bet Now – BetVictor)

Tottenham v Liverpool – 13:30 (LIVE on Sky Sports 1)

This should be an exciting match up with both teams showing real quality in the final third. Although Tottenham did play in the Europa League Thursday, they were at home and put out mostly a second string side. There has been 4 goals or more in each of these two teams last 3 Premier League meetings.

Prediction: Tottenham 2 – 2 Liverpool
TIP: Over 3.5 Goals @ 7/4 (Bet Now – BetVictor)

Leicester v Arsenal – 16:00 (LIVE on Sky Sports 1)

The biggest Arsenal news this week comes with Giroud being set for an extended spell on the sidelines with a broken Tibia. Leicester have fought hard this season against tough opposition but did leak two first half goals against Everton. Whether they are ready to compete against top class opposition remains to be seen. Arsenal should dominate the midfield and even without Giroud have enough firepower and class to come away with all 3 points.

Prediction: Leicester 1 – 2 Arsenal
TIP: Away Win @ 13/15 (Bet Now – Bet365)

European Football Betting Tips 23rd – 25th August

Here’s our football betting tips for the European footy leagues this weekend. We’re going to pick out 4 games which will be played from Saturday to Monday.

Guingamp V Marseille – 16:00 (Saturday)

Marseille are still searching for their first win of the season and they will be keen to make this happen come Saturday. Although Guingamp won’t make it easy, Marseille have an abundance of talent in comparison to the Guingamp team, which should be enough to see them gain a comfortable win.

Tip: Marseille Win @ 8/5 (Bet Now – BetVictor)

Barcelona v Elche – 20:00 (Sunday)
Real Madrid v Cordoba – 19:00 (Monday)

The coming days see the La Liga season kick off with Barcelona on Sunday and Real Madrid on Monday both have fairly straightforward home fixtures against Elche and Cordoba respectively. With an array of talent, both new and old available to the managers, there should be no hiccups for either team. Both teams will be looking to get off to a good start following their pre-season and more importantly, they will be looking to make a statement of intent to one another.

Prediction 1: Barcelona Win @ 1/9 (Bet Now – PaddyPower)
Prediction 2: Real Madrid Win @ 1/12 (Bet Now – PaddyPower)

Dortmund v Bayer Leverkusen – 17:30 (Saturday)

Dortmund have lost some big players over the last few years, but always seem to make a strong start after the transfer window. Getting used to life without Lewandowski could prove difficult, but I don’t think it will affect them initially as Klopp appears to have his team extremely well organised. I expect Dortmund to win this one to nil, by two or three goals.

Prediction – Dortmund Win @ 8/13 (Bet Now – BetVictor)

Championship Preview & Betting Tips – 23rd August

Here is a preview of the weekend football betting tips and predictions for the English Championship.

If you fancy a flutter at the weekend this 3-fold could be worth considering.

Wolves V Cardiff – 15:00 (Saturday)

Although Wolves will be on a high following their win over Fulham last week, they will struggle to contain the outright title favourites come Saturday. Cardiff may have lost some of their best players this season, but they have still managed to keep hold of their key Premier League pedigree footballers, including Kenwyn Jones and Adam Le Fondre, who could provide Cardiff with the edge for a win over Wolves and come May … we may even see them back in the prem.

Prediction – Cardiff Win @ 5/2 (Bet Now – BetVictor)

Brentford V Birmingham – 15:00 (Saturday)

Brentford have made a decent start and will come into the game in high-spirits after an away win at Blackpool, but I think they will find it very difficult to break Birmingham down. Birmingham where very unlucky to draw against Ipswich in their last match, conceding a 90-minute equaliser. Although the blues sit three places below Brentford in the league, and are away in this fixture, they should have enough quality to secure all three points and get their season underway.

Prediction – Birmingham Win @ 14/5 (Bet Now – Bet365)

Wigan V Blackpool – 15:00 (Saturday)

Both teams have made a particularly poor start to their seasons and although neither team have looked particularly dangerous recently, it’s been Blackpool who have performed most poorly.  A travelling Blackpool will really struggle at the DW Stadium and I believe Wigan will comfortably win the match and finally give the Latic fans something to cheer about.

Prediction – Wigan Win @ 4/9 (Bet Now – BetVictor)

3-fold Accumulator – Cardiff, Birmingham, Wigan @ 19/1 (Bet Now – BetVictor)

Premier League 2014/15 Relegation Tips and Predictions

Relegation is that word that sends shivers down the spines of Managers and Owners every season, because a lot of the time Relegation means ‘losing one’s job’ and the huge tv and sponsorship revenues the Premier League has to offer. It’s popular belief that the Premier League is the toughest league in the world whilst also one of the most unpredictable.

So, who does Oddser think will be fighting for survival. Our Football Betting Tips and Predictions for the Premier League Relegation Battle are as follows:

15th – Sunderland (45 points)
16th – West Brom (45 points)
17th – West Ham (42 points)
18th – Crystal Palace (40 points)
19th – Leicester (34 points)
20th – Burnley  (29 points)

Here’s a quick summary of how we came to the conclusion of the bottom 3 and the odds of relegation for them.

18th – Crystal Palace

Last season Palace fortunately employed the tactical genius Tony Pulis. They were 3rd from bottom before Pulis took over and he ended up taking them up to 11th. With Pulis there we would of said that they would stay up, but we can’t see any other manager with the same Tactical and defensive awareness for the big games to come in and complete the job of Premier League survival for another season. With no real big name signings other than arguably Frazier Campbell, we can’t see how they’re going to survive.

Crystal Palace to be Relegated @ 2/1 (Bet Now – Ladbrokes)

19th – Leicester City

Leicester are just one of those teams who have never really got going in the Premier League, and we can see them falling behind again. Although they managed a great result at the weekend against Everton, they went behind twice at home exposing their defensive frailties. Unfortunately going behind twice at home in the Premier League is a recipe for disaster and they might not be so lucky in recovering a point against other opposition. Although Leicester stormed the Championship last season the Premier League is a different animal and sorry Leicester fans but they’re one of our picks to go down this season.

Leicester City to be Relegated @ 10/3 (Bet Now – BetVictor)

20th – Burnley

Burnley have shown fight the way they battled hard last season to get into the Premier League the way they did. The performance against Chelsea earlier this week was pretty good considering the fire power they were up against, but when it comes to 20 games down the line, do they have the depth in their squad to compete with the likes of Sunderland, Newcastle and Tottenham, We’re not sure they do… to be honest, 29 points could be a bit of a generous prediction.
