Premier League Game Week 8 betting preview


We have one final round of Premier League matches before we go into another international break, with Liverpool playing Man City

We start the weekend with some Friday night football and Brighton are slight favourites to beat a West Ham side who are doing very well under Manuel Pellegrini.

Bet365 go 2.40 about the Seagulls winning and they’re usually a tough nut to crack at the AMEX Stadium, although the Hammers have the bit between their teeth at the moment and can be backed at 3.00 to claim another maximum haul.

Burnley clash with Huddersfield at Turf Moor looking for a third consecutive win and the Clarets are 2.10 to beat a Terriers side who are starting to look doomed already this campaign, although the visitors defied the odds last season and odds of 3.80 have been chalked up regarding the away victory.

Wolves might be a popular order at 2.75 to win away to Crystal Palace, especially after extra rest compared to the Eagles who were in action on Monday. Roy Hodgson’s team look reliant on Wilfried Zaha and bet365 go 2.62 about the home win.

Leicester City are looking in good nick under Claude Puel and the Foxes are 2.25 with bet365 to get the better of an Everton side who have been hit and miss under Marco Silva this term. However, the attack is in decent fettle after beating Fulham and the Toffees are 3.25 with bet365.

Tottenham look like home bankers against Cardiff and they can be backed at 1.16 to beat the Bluebirds at Wembley and bank another three points, with the visitors available at 15.00 which reflects their status as outsiders.

Watford are pretty solid at home and that is reflected in the 2.04 that they beat a Bournemouth side who were trashed 4-0 last time they took to the road, although they have won at West Ham this season and the Cherries are 3.40 for the win here.

Manchester United can’t be trusted after a spate of defeats this season although the Red Devils are 1.44 with bet365 to beat a Newcastle side who look to be ailing under Rafael Benitez, with the visitors 7.00 to claim a confidence-boosting maximum haul.

Fulham have a London derby against Arsenal and need to tighten up defensively, with the Cottagers 5.00 with bet365 to get the better of a Gunners side on an excellent winning run and they are 1.57 to pick up the points here.

Southampton look weak under Mark Hughes and that is reflected in the 6.50 quote with bet365 about them beating Chelsea, with the Blues 1.57 to build on that strong performance against Liverpool with a win.
