Premier League: What to Bet on This Weekend

The Premier League resumes on Friday as Norwich City host Leicester City at Carrow Road. This must-win clash for the relegation-threatened Canaries is one of just eight Premier League games taking place over the course of the weekend. Manchester City and Aston Villa will be involved in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday therefore, their matches against Arsenal and Sheffield United respective are to be rescheduled. Here at Compare Betting Sites we’ll preview every English top-flight fixture going ahead this weekend, providing odds courtesy of our top betting partner, Coral. 

 

Friday 28th February 

 

Norwich City vs Leicester City (8:00pm) 

 

After a run of just one point from four games Norwich City have fallen seven points adrift of the sides just outside of the relegation zone. With 11 games left in the Premier League season, the visit of Leicester City is therefore considered by many to be a must-win game. 

 

Friday could prove the perfect time to face Brendan Rodgers’ high-flying Leicester City side. The Foxes are winless in three league games and have failed to score in their past two matches. Whilst Jamie Vardy remains the Premier League’s top scorer, the Leicester City man has failed to score in his last 9 matches in all competitions. Vardy has not gone ten games without a goal since 2016. 

 

If you’re a Premier League forward experiencing a scoring drought, Norwich City could prove to be the perfect opponents. The Canaries have one of the worst defensive records in the top-flight, conceding 51 times in 27 matches. The league’s basement team have only kept one clean sheet at home in the league all season. 

 

With Norwich City’s woeful defensive record and Jamie Vardy’s barren spell in front of goal, we are backing ex-Norwich City midfielder, James Maddison, to be the different at Carrow Road. Maddison is in contention for a place in England’s Euro 2020 squad and will be eager to impress at the place he used to call home. Maddison is 8/1 to score first on Friday or 14/5 to find the net at any time. 

 

Match odds 

Norwich City – 7/2 

Draw – 14/5 

Leicester City – 3/4 

 

Saturday 29th February (3pm unless stated) 

 

Brighton & Hove Albion vs Crystal Palace (12:30) 

 

Saturday kicks off with the M23 derby as Crystal Palace make the short trip south to take on Brighton & Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium. 

 

Hosts, Brighton, are deep in relegation trouble after a winless run stretching back into 2019. The Seagulls are the only team in any of the top four divisions in England yet to win a game in 2020. However, five of Brighton’s seven league games in 2020 have ended in a stalemate, losing just twice since the turn of the year. 

 

No Premier League team have scored fewer goals than Crystal Palace this season and with Brighton’s inability to claim a much-need win, we’re not expected a goal-fest at the Amex. Get on under 2.5 match goals at 4/7. 

 

Match odds 

Brighton & Hove Albion – 11/10 

Draw – 11/5 

Crystal Palace – 14/5 

 

AFC Bournemouth vs Chelsea 

 

Chelsea boss, Frank Lampard, will be hoping for an immediate response from his players after they were beaten comprehensively by Bayern Munich in the Champions League in midweek. Home advantage counted for nothing as the German giants eased to a 3-0 win over the Blues at Stamford Bridge, leaving Chelsea’s participation in the Champions League hanging by a thread. 

 

Chelsea’s focus must now turn to the league and insuring they secure a top-four finish. The Blues currently occupy fourth spot but are looking nervously over their shoulders at the chasing pack. 

 

Bournemouth have turned into a bogey team for Chelsea, winning three of the last four meetings. The Cherries are looking to complete a league double over Chelsea for the first time but are currently on a poor run of form. Eddie Howe’s side looked to have turned a corner when claiming back-to-back league wins against Aston Villa and Brighton but that upturn in fortunes was short-lived. Bournemouth have lost two consecutive league games to record their lowest ever tally after 27 Premier League games. 

 

In Tammy Abraham’s continued absence, Olivier Giroud is set to lead the line for Chelsea once again at the Vitality Stadium. Giroud has ten goals in his last ten starts in all competitions and is 23/20 to score at any time on Saturday. With a point to prove after the Bayern defeat, Chelsea are likely to fly out of the traps, therefore, Chelsea to be winning at half-time and full-time could be worth a punt at 9/5. 

 

Match odds 

AFC Bournemouth – 7/2 

Draw – 27/10 

Chelsea – 3/4 

 

Newcastle United vs Burnley 

 

Since losing four consecutive games between Boxing Day and January 11th, Burnley’s season has been transformed. The Clarets are now one of the league’s most in-form teams, winning four and drawing one of their past five league games. That run has included impressive wins against both Manchester United and Leicester City as well as a deserved draw with Arsenal at Turf Moor. 

 

Next up for Burnley is a trip to St James’ Park. Hosts, Newcastle United, are looking nervously over their shoulders after a run of just two points from a possible 12 however, with a seven-point advantage over West Ham United in 18th, Steve Bruce’s side are all-but-assured of their Premier League status. 

 

Both Newcastle and Burnley are amongst the league’s lowest scorers this season whilst there have been fewer Premier League goals scored at St James’ Park this season than at any other ground. Burnley may still have an outside chance of European qualification whilst Newcastle United aren’t yet mathematically safe, however this fixture very much has a mid-table feel about it. You should consider under 2.5 match goals at 8/15. 

 

Match odds 

Newcastle United – 8/5 

Draw – 21/10 

Burnley – 15/8 

 

West Ham United vs Southampton 

 

West Ham United are now without a win in seven matches but will take plenty of encouragement from their recent defeat to Liverpool. The Hammers looked set to end Liverpool’s incredible unbeaten run but eventually surrendered a 2-1 lead to lose 3-2. 

 

West Ham can also draw confidence from the fact they’re currently enjoying a four-game winning streak against Southampton. However, the Saints have been in superb form on the road, claiming 20 of their 34 points away from St Mary’s. Another win will equal Southampton’s club record of seven top-flight away wins in a season. 

 

Only Liverpool and Manchester City have earned more points than Southampton over the past ten Premier League games, a run aided by the excellent goal-scoring form of forward, Danny Ings. Ings is staking a late claim for a place in England’s Euro 2020 squad and should be considered to find the net at the London Stadium. You can back Ings at 14/5 score first or 19/20 to score at any time against West Ham United. 

 

Match odds 

West Ham United – 33/20 

Draw – 12/5 

Southampton – 31/20 

 

Watford vs Liverpool (5:30pm) 

 

Liverpool overcome an almighty shock on Monday, coming from 2-1 down to beat West Ham United 3-2 at Anfield. The Reds now need no more than four wins from their final 11 games to claim a first league title in 30 years. 

 

We run out of superlatives to describe this Liverpool team weeks ago and it seems they’re breaking a new record with every passing week. Three points at Vicarage Road will see Liverpool claim a new Premier League record of 19 consecutive wins whilst they’d also seal a new club record of nine away league wins on the bounce. 

 

Since Jurgen Klopp took charge at Liverpool they have scored 27 goals in just nine games against Watford, winning each of the last four league games by a 15-0 aggregate scoreline. Get on Liverpool to win with over 2.5 match goals at 21/20. Mohamed Salah has been a constant menace to Watford, scoring eight goals in just five league games against the Hornets. The Egyptian can be backed at 14/5 to score first at Vicarage Road. Alternatively, you can back him to score two or more at 4/1. 

 

Match odds 

Watford – 6/1 

Draw – 7/2 

Liverpool – 4/9 

 

Sunday 1st March (both 2pm) 

 

Everton vs Manchester United 

 

As the odds suggest, this game is tough to call. On one hand Manchester United have improved considerably since the arrivals of Bruno Fernandes and are pushing relentlessly for a top-four finish. However, on the other hand, they have not won back-to-back away league games for more than a year and Everton are unbeaten in six league games at Goodison Park. 

 

The value may be in backing both teams to score at 8/11. Everton’s chief goal threat should be Dominic Calvert-Lewin who is available at 13/10 to score at any time. The visitors are sweating on the fitness of Anthony Martial whilst Marcus Rashford is a long-term absentee. Their main goal threat could come from shock January signing, Odion Ighalo. Ighalo played 90 minutes in the Europa League on Thursday, scoring his first United goal and can be backed at 2/1 to score at any time against Everton. 

 

Match odds 

Everton – 6/4 

Draw – 9/4 

Manchester United – 15/8 

 

Tottenham Hotspur vs Wolverhampton Wanderers 

 

Spurs and Wolves meet in North London having both suffered a defeat in Europe in midweek. However, whilst Wolves’ 3-2 defeat wasn’t enough to prevent them from progressing to the Europa League last-16, Spurs’ 1-0 defeat at home to RB Leipzig has left their Champions League participation hanging by a thread. 

 

Spurs fans have been buoyed this week by the news Harry Kane is making good progress in his bid to get back before the end of the season. However, on Sunday they will have to do without the England captain as well as Heung-Min Son. Tottenham Hotspur’s attacking hopes could rest on the shoulders of Lucas Moura. Moura scored when the two sides met in December but he’s failed to find the net in ten games since. 

 

A depleted Spurs frontline comes up against a Wolves team with three clean sheets on the bounce, however, a Europa League hangover could leave Wolves a little vulnerable defensively. We are tipping Spurs to find the net at least once on Sunday. Get on over 2.5 match goals at 5/4 or both teams to score at 10/11. 

 

Match odds 

Tottenham Hotspur – 29/20 

Draw – 21/10 

Wolverhampton Wanderers – 2/1
