Premier League betting preview 26-27 November
We’re into Week 13 of the 2016/17 Premier League season, with CHELSEA leading the way after a dozen games. The Blues have enjoyed 28 points from twelve games played, including six straight victories which have all been to nil.
The latest team aiming to derail Antonio Conte’s side are Tottenham Hotspur and the visitors to Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening are unbeaten on the road this term.
Spurs are a lumpy 5.00 with Ladbrokes to record victory and we should note there was no love lost between these sides last season when Chelsea effectively ended Tottenham’s title hopes by securing a 2-2 draw.
The Premier League weekend kicks off on Saturday lunchtime when Burnley entertain Manchester City. The Clarets have had some eye-catching wins at Turf Moor this season and William Hill offer odds of 10.00 that we see a home win.
However, Pep Guardiola’s side are likely to be popular accumulator selections, with BetVictor going 1.33 about City doing the business and going top of the league.
Liverpool look the safest bet on the coupon at odds of 1.19 (Unibet ) although Sunderland do arrive off the back of consecutive wins against Bournemouth and Hull City. Perhaps they can pose a few problems at Anfield.
Watford meet Stoke City on Sunday lunchtime and the Hornets seem a fair price at 2.30 to get over the line, with Walter Mazzarri’s side flying out of the traps when beating Leicester last weekend.
Arsenal were particularly bad when they went to Old Trafford last weekend and goodness knows how they managed to squeeze out a draw. The bookies aren’t completely certain their clash against Bournemouth will end in a home win although William Hill ’s 1.40 is the best you can find.
Later in the afternoon, Manchester United go up against West Ham United, with bet365 offering 1.45 about a Red Devils victory and Jose Mourinho needs wins badly at the moment. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to sign a one-year extension at the club and the Swede is 2.00 with Unibet to find the net in this clash.
Southampton go up against an Everton side blowing hot and cold under Ronald Koeman right now, with the Toffees a 3.70 chance (bet365) to land a victory for a manager who returns to St Mary’s having spent two successful seasons at the club.
The Saints are 2.10 to overcome any fatigue after playing Sparta Prague on Thursday night, with Claude Puel’s team hoping that his team can start averaging more than one goal per game which is the current average.
