Critical Day for Cardiff and Brighton in Relegation Battle

Tottenham Hotspur are the only top six Premier League side in action on Saturday, therefore, the fights for seventh position and Premier League survival will take centre stage. Cardiff City and Brighton & Hove Albion are embroiled in a fierce battle to beat the drop and are both in action on Saturday whilst three of the four sides still in with a realistic chance of finishing seventh also feature. 

Here at Compare Betting Sites we preview all six Premier League games taking place on Saturday, offering team news, betting tips and search for all the best odds available. 

Saturday 27th April (3pm kick-off unless stated) 

Tottenham Hotspur vs West Ham United (12:30pm) 

Tottenham Hotspur host West Ham United in the day’s early kick-off in what is likely to be a tricky London derby for Mauricio Pochettino’s side. 

Spurs are in pole position for one of the Champions League qualification spots after both Arsenal and Manchester United suffered defeats on Wednesday. A win at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will give Spurs a seven-point cushion over Arsenal in fifth place and all-but-confirm their participation in next season’s Champions League. 

With a first ever Champions League semi-final on the horizon, Spurs will be keen to seal a top-four place sooner rather than later and will be tempted to field a strong side at home to West Ham United despite taking on Ajax on Tuesday. 

Son Heung-Min is suspended for the first leg of their Champions League semi-final and is a certainty to start on Saturday. Son will feel disappointed not to have been named in the PFA Team of the Year and with a point to prove could provide excellent value in the goal scorer markets. You can back the Spurs forward at 15/4 to score first with SportNation. 

Spurs have already beaten West Ham twice this season and with a record of four wins from four and no goals against since moving back from their temporary Wembley home few would bet against another home win on Saturday lunchtime. However, with their Champions League tie looming, the home side will want to get the job done early. Get on Spurs to be winning at half-time and full-time at 23/20 with Ladbrokes or Coral.  

Match Odds 

Tottenham Hotspur - 4/9 (Betfred) 

Draw - 4/1 (InterBet) 

West Ham United - 34/5 (MarathonBet) 

Crystal Palace vs Everton 

Everton kept alive their hopes of finishing seventh last weekend with a superb 4-0 win at home to Manchester United. Now back on the road, the Toffees take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. 

Everton have an impressive defensive on the road, keeping six clean sheets in their past eight away league games. However, Crystal Palace have scored in every home league game in 2019 so something has to give! 

Palace have scored just five goals in their last nine league meetings with Everton so we are leaning towards an Everton clean sheet. Everton won 2-0 when the sides met at Goodison Park, a repeat of that score line will be popular at 15/1 with BetVictor. 

Match Odds 

Crystal Palace - 17/10 (Betfred) 

Draw - 5/2 (Betfair) 

Everton - 15/8 (BetVictor) 

Fulham vs Cardiff City 

When the fixtures were announced last summer, this was earmarked as a potential relegation shoot-out. Although Fulham’s fate has long been confirmed, for Cardiff City it very much represents the last chance saloon. 

The Bluebirds trail Brighton & Hove Albion by three points with three to play. With an inferior goal difference and a trip to Old Trafford on the final day of the season you feel that only a win will do for the visitors to Craven Cottage. 

Cardiff’s hopes have been handed a double blow with midfield duo, Joe Ralls and Harry Arter set to miss out. With Sol Bamba and Callum Paterson unavailable for the remainder of the season, the Bluebirds’ squad is looking short on numbers. 

Unfortunately for Cardiff, Fulham seem to have hit a decent run of form. The Cottagers have won each of their last two league games without conceding a goal and will be hopeful of ending their season on a high. 

As two of the division’s lowest scorers we’re expecting a cagey affair at Craven Cottage. Given what is a stake we’re going for a 1-0 win for the visitors. If you agree, 1-0 Cardiff is a generous 11/1 with Betfred and Bet365. 

Match Odds 

Fulham - 13/10 

Draw - 13/5 (Smarkets) 

Cardiff City - 2/1 (Royal Panda) 

Southampton vs AFC Bournemouth 

Whilst Southampton aren’t yet mathematically safe from the drop, it is highly likely that these two clubs will both be playing Premier League football again next season. However, this is far from a dead-rubber with South Coast bragging rights at stake for the two local rivals. 

A home win will be enough to guarantee Southampton’s top-flight status and the club are enjoying a fine run of form at home of late. The Saints have claimed three wins from their last four league games at St Mary’s and are on a run of 12 successive home games in which they’ve scored. Don’t expect that scoring sequence to end on Saturday, Bournemouth have the worst defensive record of any side currently outside of the relegation zone. The Cherries have conceded 62 goals in the league this season. 

Southampton also have the upper hand in recent meetings between these two rivals. The Saints have won six and drawn four of eleven Premier League meetings between the sides. Bournemouth’s single win came at home three years ago. Bournemouth have never won at Southampton. 

With Southampton keen to secure their Premier League status this weekend, we are tipping the home side to take all three points at St Mary’s. Southampton to win 2-0 at 10/1 with Bet365 and Betfred is our pick. 

Match Odds 

Southampton - 10/11 (InterBet) 

Draw - 73/25 (MarathonBet) 

AFC Bournemouth - 10/3 (Betfred) 

Watford vs Wolverhampton Wanderers 

Eighth host seventh at Vicarage Road on Saturday as Watford host Wolves in a game that could decide which of these clubs play European football next season. Both sides have exceeded expectations this season and finishing seventh now remains the goal. Albeit, Watford still have the small matter of an FA Cup final to play after beating Wolves in a thrilling semi-final at Wembley. 

With revenge on their minds, Wolves make the trip south on a run of five league games without a win. Wolves have lost three and drawn two of their past five away games, failing to claim three points on the road since defeating Everton on February 2nd. 

Form would suggest that a home win is on the cards on Saturday. Watford are unbeaten in 14 games against sides outside of the top six, they’ve won their past three home league games, lost just once in eleven home games and have already beaten Wolves at Wembley and Molineux this season. 

However, with talisman, Troy Deeney, suspended and an FA Cup final to look forward to, Watford could be a little off their best against Wolves. In the Correct Score market, a 1-1 draw is attracting plenty of support. Commonly available at 11/2, a 1-1 draw could be the sensible bet.

Match Odds 

Watford - 37/20 (Unibet) 

Draw - 23/10 (BetVictor) 

Wolverhampton Wanderers - 9/5 (Betfair) 

Brighton & Hove Albion vs Newcastle United (5:30pm) 

Chris Hughton’s Brighton host his former club, Newcastle United at the AmEX in a huge relegation showdown. Newcastle United secured their Premier League safety but a dreadful run of form has left Brighton nervously looking over their shoulders with Cardiff City hoping to capitilise on any slip-up. 

The Seagulls have lost six and drawn one of their last seven fixtures and have not scored a single goal in any of those games; the worst goal-less run in the club’s history. 

If Cardiff City claim all three points away at Fulham then Brighton will be out of the drop zone on goal difference only by the time Newcastle come to town. With their last two games against Arsenal (a) and Manchester City (h), you feel this game offers Brighton’s best chance of getting the points they need to stay up. 

The three previous Premier League meetings between these sides have seen just one goal scored so we’re not expecting a goal-fest here. With their superior goal difference, a win will all-but-guarantee Brighton’s Premier League status but it’s going to be cagey. Get on under 1.5 match goals at 17/10 with InterBet. 

Match Odds 

Brighton & Hove Albion - 11/8 (Betway) 

Draw - 21/10 (InterBet) 

Newcastle United - 27/10 (Betfair)
