Premier League Game Week 5 betting preview
Things are starting to take shape in the Premier League, with the cream rising to the top although Bournemouth currently occupy a lowly rung on the ladder.
The Cherries will hope for a change of fortunes when they clash with Brighton on Friday evening, with Paddy Power offering 2.25 (5/4) about a win for Eddie Howe’s team.
The Seagulls are 3.75 (11/4) with bet365 and are aiming to land consecutive wins after beating West Brom 3-1 last weekend, their first victory in the Premier League.
On Saturday lunchtime, we have the enticing prospect of Roy Hodgson’s first game in charge of Crystal Palace. There has been money for the Eagles building up to this match, with bet365 currently holding their 3.00 (2/1), although Southampton are the 2.50 (6/4) favourites at Ladbrokes .
Huddersfield’s unbeaten start to the campaign ended on Monday with a defeat at West Ham, although you can get 3.00 (2/1) with William Hill that they bounce back against a Leicester side who have come up against several big teams. We quite like the Foxes to win this one at 2.40 (7/5) with Unibet .
Meanwhile, Newcastle v Stoke should be an exciting tussle, with the Magpies 2.30 (13/10) with Paddy Power to land a third consecutive win, although the Potters are 3.00 (2/1) with William Hill and looked good when drawing 2-2 with Manchester United.
Watford are a lumpy 10.00 (9/1) with Unibet to beat Manchester City, with the latter travelling back from the Netherlands although Pep Guardiola’s side are currently full of goals and that is why you can only back them at 1.33 (1/3) with BetVictor for this one.
Paddy Power chalk up 2.30 (13/10) about West Brom beating West Ham, although the Hammers landed their first win against Huddersfield and bet365 customers can enjoy 3.10 (11/5) about the Hammers making it two on the bounce.
Tottenham beat Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday night and are a 1.25 (1/4) chance to beat Swansea at Wembley, while there’s another London match on Sunday night when Chelsea clash with Arsenal. The Blues are a 1.83 poke (5/6) with Paddy Power to continue their winning run although the Gunners are 4.50 (7/2) with bet365 to pull off the win.
Finally, Manchester United go up against Everton and the Red Devils are 1.40 (2/5) with bet365 to continue their 100% record at Old Trafford this term. The Toffees will be out to give a better account of themselves than they did against Tottenham and William Hill go 10.00 (9/1) about them taking the points.
