Best Premier League Betting Tips
By Matt Pitt
Pick of the week: Liverpool (+105) vs. Arsenal (+240)
Liverpool have only managed two victories in 12 games since the start of 2017 (one of those was in the FA Cup against lowly Plymouth Argyle) and have seen their Premier League title hopes all but smashed to smithereens.
Arsenal have lost three of five games, one of those a 5-1 humiliation away to Bayern Munich in the Champions League. Manager Arsene Wenger is under pressure despite the fact his side could move up to third place with a win.
Honors are almost even between these sides. Liverpool have 84 wins, Arsenal 78 and 59 games have ended in a draw. Five of the past seven Premier League meetings have finished with more than 2.5 goals scored and four of those would have triggered the over 3.5 goals market; there should be goals this weekend.
Pick: Over two goals at -265
Tottenham Hotspur (-150) vs. Everton (+400)
Tottenham Hotspur were prematurely knocked out of Europe recently, but they are on course for a return to the Champions League next season as they currently occupy second place in the Premier League table.
Spurs have won eight of 11 Premier League games, their only loss in that time coming in a 2-0 defeat away at Liverpool. This week they take on Everton, another Merseyside team who are in good form and looking for a return to European soccer next season.
Everton are unbeaten in six games, scoring 14 goals during that time, including six against Bournemouth. The Toffees’ away form is not brilliant (4-5-4) but they have enough firepower to worry their London opponents and are strong enough in defense to keep Spurs at bay.
Five of the past five meetings between Spurs and Everton have ended in a draw with three of those draws being score draws. It is worth noting that Tottenham have not lost a home game in the league all season, the only team in England that can boast of such a record. I expect this record to stay intact this weekend.
Pick: Draw at +285
West Ham United (+475) vs. Chelsea (-175)
West Ham United endured a horrific start to the season but Slaven Bilic has turned the Hammers’ fortunes around as they've climbed to ninth place in the table.
Their one defeat in the last six came in a 4-0 home loss to Manchester City. West Ham is playing with great confidence but they have their work cut out against a Chelsea side who could move 13 points clear at the top of the table.
West Ham have struggled against teams occupying the top spots of the standings, losing 3-1 and 4-0 to Manchester City and 5-1 to Arsenal in big defeats. In those games, they've conceded at least three goals in 11 separate games this season.
Chelsea have won 17 of 19 Premier League games. It is a case of when and not if they win the title. Chelsea have only allowed 19 goals in the league, and while the aerial threat of West Ham’s Andy Carroll is real, the Blues’ defense should be able to cope with amost anything West Ham throw at them.
Bookmakers think this will be a Chelsea win with the odds of winning by one goal (+250) being almost the same as winning by three goals or more (+350). I also think they will win but think the best value bet to make is on Chelsea winning at half time and going on to win the game at +145.
Pick: Chelsea-Chelsea Half Time / Full Time at +145
