Weekend Football Betting Preview

As the Premier League action continues this weekend, we at Compare Betting Sites will preview all ten matches taking place. During our run-down of the weekend’s action we will offer team news, betting tips and odds courtesy of our betting partner, Sportingbet. 

 

Friday 25th October 

 

Southampton vs Leicester City (8pm) 

 

The weekend kicks off at St Mary’s where visitors, Leicester City, will have the opportunity to go second, for 24 hours at least. The Foxes are chasing a sixth win in their first ten league games, the first time they’ve achieved this since 1930. 

 

Jamie Vardy has been in red-hot form since Brandan Rodgers took over at Leicester City on March 3rd. Since Rodgers’ appointment, Vardy has scored a league-high 15 goals and is 17/20 to score at any time and 3/1 to score first on Friday.  

 

Despite their fine run of form, Leicester City have not kept a clean sheet on the road in any of their last 12 league games. Therefore, Sportingbet’s 7/10 for both teams to score looks a steal! 

 

Southampton’s main goal threat comes in the form of former Liverpool forward, Danny Ings. The summer signing has found the back of the net five times in his past four games in all competitions. If you fancy Ings to keep up that record you can support him at 9/5 to score at any time. 

 

Match Odds 

 

Southampton – 9/4 

Draw – 12/5 

Leicester City – 13/10 

 

Saturday 26th October (kick off 3pm unless stated) 

 

Manchester City vs Aston Villa (12:30pm) 

 

With league leaders, Liverpool, not in action until Sunday, Manchester City will get the opportunity to close the gap at the top to just three points when they host Aston Villa in Saturday’s early kick off. 

 

City have bounced back from their shock defeat at home to Wolves with two wins in a week against Crystal Palace and Atalanta. However, their Champions League win at home to Atalanta came at a cost with stand-in central defender, Rodri, departing early through injury. With Aymeric Laporte out and both Nicolas Otamendi and John Stones fighting to prove their fitness, City could once again be forced to field a makeshift defensive pairing. 

 

For all of their defensive struggles, Manchester City have had no such trouble at the other end. Top scorer, Raheem Sterling, has already scored 12 goals in all competitions this season, Sergio Aguero is the Premier League’s joint-highest scorer with eight goals and Gabriel Jesus has found the net in his last seven starts. With such an immense array of firepower at their disposal, City’s games are almost guaranteed goals. Manchester City to win and over 3.5 match goals is excellent value at 3/5. 

 

Match Odds 

 

Manchester City – 9/100 

Draw – 10/1 

Aston Villa – 22/1 

 

Brighton & Hove Albion vs Everton 

 

Last weekend’s win at home to West Ham United has certainly eased the pressure on manager, Marco Silva, but the Toffees are still in trouble at the wrong end of the table ahead of their trip to the south coast. The Toffees have claimed a meagre ten points from the first nine games whilst Saturday’s hosts, Brighton, are one point worse off on nine points. 

 

Both previous meetings at the Amex in the Premier League have been low-scoring affairs with Brighton claiming a 1-0 last season after sharing a 1-1 draw the season before. The loser of this game could well find themselves in the bottom three by the end of the weekend and the game has therefore become more of a ‘must not lose’ fixture rather than a ‘must win’. Two bets worth considering are under 2.5 match goals at 21/20 and a 1-1 draw which is available at 23/4. 

 

Match Odds 

 

Brighton & Hove Albion – 37/20 

Draw – 23/10 

Everton – 31/20 

 

Watford vs AFC Bournemouth 

 

Bournemouth made a fine start to the season but their lack of goals recently has been a cause for concern. Eddie Howe’s side are yet to score a league goal in October and could only manage a 0-0 draw at home to Norwich City last weekend. The Cherries are now winless in four games in all competitions but take on a Watford side enduring a miserable start to the campaign. 

 

Having failed to win any of their first nine games, Watford are now one game away from equalling their worst start to a season whilst the last time they went nine games without a win at the start of a Premier League season was in 2006/07 when they finished bottom. 

 

Match Odds 

 

Watford – 6/5 

Draw – 5/2 

AFC Bournemouth – 11/5 

 

West Ham United vs Sheffield United 

 

West Ham and Sheffield United meet on Saturday for the first time since the infamous Carlos Tevez saga of 2007. Carlos Tevez’s controversial move to West Ham helped save the Hammers from relegation at the expense of Sheffield United but after it emerged Tevez’s capture wasn’t entirely above board, a long-drawn-out legal battle ensued. 

 

Fast forward more than a decade and Sheffield United are back in the Premier League and are the season’s surprise package. Tipped by most to make an immediate return to the second tier, Sheffield United’s win over Arsenal on Monday moved Chris Wilder’s team into the top half of the table. 

 

Match Odds 

 

West Ham United – 21/20 

Draw – 5/2 

Sheffield United – 13/5 

 

Burnley vs Chelsea (5:30pm) 

 

Next up for Chelsea is a tricky trip to Turf Moor but Frank Lampard’s side are one of the league’s most in-form sides and are currently on a run of six consecutive wins in all competitions. The blues have an excellent Premier League record against Burnley having lost just once in their previous ten meetings. 

 

This fixture finished 4-0 in Chelsea’s favour last season and although we’re expecting another Chelsea win, it is likely to be a far closer affair this time around. Chelsea to win and both teams to score could be popular at 21/10 whilst Tammy Abraham heads the first scorer market at 3/1. Callum Hudson-Odoi's return to the first team has offered Chelsea a major boost and we’re tipping the England international to score at any time at 2/1. 

 

Match Odds 

 

Burnley – 7/2 

Draw – 29/10 

Chelsea – 3/4 

 

Sunday 27th October (kick off 4:30pm unless stated) 

 

Newcastle United vs Wolverhampton Wanderers (2pm) 

 

It wasn’t too long ago that Wolves were rooted to the foot of the Premier League table after a disastrous first month or so. However, Wolves are currently on a seven-game unbeaten run in all competitions. That run includes three impressive away wins already in October. Wolves’ shock 2-0 against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium came in between two Europa League wins on the road at Besiktas and Slovan Bratislava. 

 

Next up for Wolves is another away fixture against Newcastle United at St James’ Park. Despite claiming surprise wins against both Spurs and Manchester United, Newcastle United still find themselves languishing in the bottom three having failed to record any other wins from their first nine games. 

 

Goal-shy Newcastle are the league’s joint-lowest scorers this season with just five goals from their opening nine fixtures. Steve Bruce’s side have not scored more than one goal in any game during the current campaign. With only Raul Jimenez (4) scoring more than two goals in all competitions this season we’re expecting a low-scoring game in the north east. Under 2.5 match goals is 53/100 whilst a 1-0 Wolves win could prove popular at 6/1. 

 

Match Odds 

 

Newcastle United – 19/10 

Draw – 21/10 

Wolverhampton Wanderers – 8/5 

 

Arsenal vs Crystal Palace 

 

Fifth host sixth at the Emirates as Arsenal take on one of the season’s surprise packages, Crystal Palace, in an intriguing London derby. Despite their lofty league positions both of these sides lost last time out, going down to defeat against Sheffield United and Manchester City respectively. 

 

Crystal Palace came out on top in this fixture last season, taking all three points back south of the river thanks to a 3-2 win in April. However, that was just the second win Crystal Palace had earned over the Gunners in 19 meetings. 

 

Alexandre Lacazette continued his comeback from injury this week as he started the Gunners’ Europa League win over Vitoria Guimaraes and he could start his first league game since the north London derby on September 1st. Having lasted 75 minutes on Thursday evening, the France international was overshadowed by his replacement, Nicolas Pepe. Trailing 2-1, Pepe fired in two sublime free-kicks late on to secure a 3-2 win for the Gunners. 

 

Pepe’s late show should be enough to see him earn a starting berth on Sunday and he is 9/2 to open the scoring or 6/5 to score at any time. 

 

Match Odds 

 

Arsenal – 9/20 

Draw – 15/4 

Crystal Palace – 11/2 

 

Liverpool vs Tottenham Hotspur 

 

The stand-out fixture of the weekend is undoubtedly this mouth-watering clash at Anfield. In a repeat of the 2018/19 Champions League final, league leaders, Liverpool, aim to maintain their unbeaten start to the season against a Spurs side finally showing signs of a resurgence in midweek. 

 

Spurs ran out comfortable 5-0 winners at home to Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday but they are without a league win in October. Their last away game saw them fall to a 3-0 defeat at Brighton. 

 

Statistically, we should not expect anything but a home win at Anfield. Spurs’ winless run away from home in the Premier League stretches all the way back to January’s win over Fulham whilst Liverpool have not lost at home in the league since April 2017. But this is the Premier League and for all their recent struggles, Spurs remain one of the division’s elite teams. At 21/4 Spurs could be too big a price to oppose as they search for a first win at Anfield since 2011. 

 

If Tottenham are to get anything out of Sunday’s game then talisman, Harry Kane, will have to be right on his game. Therefore the 11/2 available on Kane to score first could offer superb value. Kane failed to score home or away against the Reds last season but the England captain fired in five goals in seven games prior to that. 

 

Mo Salah missed last weekend’s draw at Old Trafford but will be back in the Liverpool starting line-up for the Spurs fixture. Salah has scored six goals in his last eight games against Spurs and is 19/20 to score at any time. 

 

Match Odds 

 

Liverpool – 1/2 

Draw – 7/2 

Tottenham Hotspur – 21/4 

 

Norwich City vs Manchester United 

 

With pressure building on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his team, now could be the perfect time to come up against Norwich City. The Canaries are suffering from an injury crisis in defence that has deprived of them of several first team players. Ahead of the visit of Manchester United, Norwich City are without Grant Hanley, Mario Vrancic, Christoph Zimmermann, Timm Klose and Ralf Fahrmann whilst Ben Godfrey has only just returned from recent hernia surgery. 

 

Like Spurs, Manchester United have been woeful on the road recently. The Red Devils won at Partizan Belgrade in midweek to earn their first away win since March but in the Premier League they’ve not won away from Old Trafford since defeating Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in February. 

 

United have not scored more than a single goal in a league game since claiming a 4-0 win over Chelsea on the opening weekend but given the depleted squad available to Norwich City, we are tipping the visitors to end that run on Sunday. Manchester United to win with over 2.5 match goals is 7/5. 

 

Anthony Martial has recently returned from injury but Marcus Rashford remains Manchester United’s main goal threat. Rashford will attract plenty of support at 17/20 to score at any time at Carrow Road. 

 

Match Odds 

 

Norwich City – 33/10 

Draw – 3/1 

Manchester United – 3/4
