Premier League Matchday 27 betting preview

Maguire United

Chelsea vs Tottenham Hotspur

The first game of matchday 27 is a tasty one as Chelsea take on Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge. Jose Mourinho returns to the place where he once labelled himself ‘The Special One’ without his two main forwards Son & Kane meaning it will probably take a special performance for Spurs to come away with the points.

Chelsea, on the other hand, have only lost one head to head at home to the Lilywhites since the start of the decade, winning 13 and drawing six. The Blues are 8/11 to win on Saturday and 2/1 best priced to win to nil.

Burnley vs Bournemouth

There are Four 3 o'clock kickoffs in the Premier League this Saturday the first of which takes place at Turf Moor between Burnley and Bournemouth. The Cherries are in desperate need of three points, as they sit two points above the relegation zone, whilst Burnley are more comfortable with their 10-point gap above the drop.

The reverse fixture saw the Clarets come out 1-0 winners and Saturday’s fixture is likely to be another close one. Both teams have had both teams to score in four of their last five games and five out of the last seven meetings between the two. You can back BTTS on Saturday at just under evens at 19/20, whilst Burnley are the favourites at 11/10.

Crystal Palace vs Newcastle

It’s 13th vs 14th in the second of the 3 pm kick offs, as Newcastle head to Selhurst Park to take on Crystal Palace. Both sides go into the game in poor form with Palace not winning in their last five and Newcastle only winning one of their last five.

Goals aren’t usually in high order when these two meet with under 2.5 goals in the last six meetings between the two. All six goals in the last six have come from set-pieces and under 2.5 is 8/15 for this game. If you’re looking for something a little higher priced you can back the draw at 12/5.

Sheffield United vs Brighton & Hove Albion

Sheffield United take on Brighton & Hove Albion at Bramall Lane in the third of the 3 o'clock ties and the Blades could have the opportunity to go fifth, depending on the early result at Stamford Bridge.

The home side will go into this as firm favourites and are a decent price at 19/20 to win the game. The Seagulls have only failed to score in one of their last nine away from home but only won one of the nine so Sheffield United & Yes at 7/2 might also be a good price. For anyone who fancies an upset, you can back the draw at 12/5 and Brighton to win at 16/5.

Southampton vs Aston Villa

The last of the 3 pm games sees us head to St Mary’s stadium for Southampton vs Aston Villa, where the chance of goals seems most likely. Both teams have had over 2.5 goals in four of their last five league games, Southampton have also had BTTS in three of the last five whilst Villa have had BTTS in all of their last 5.

The result for this one is tough to predict with both teams inconsistent in the league this season and only one win in five for both clubs. Both teams to score and over 2.5 for this one is 10/11.

Danny Ings has also been in brilliant goalscoring form and is 8/11 to score anytime on Saturday.

Leicester vs Man City

The late game in the Premier League on Saturday takes place at the King Power Stadium as Leicester take on Man City in the battle for second spot. As the league title seems like it is already heading to Liverpool and a huge Champions League game away at Real Madrid in midweek, this could prove a tricky test for Guardiola’s men.

Goals again might be the best bet in this one with Leicester’s last four home games being BTTS and three of City’s last 5. BTTS can be backed at 4/7. Jamie Vardy (17) and Sergio Aguero (16) are battling it out for the golden boot and are 7/2 to both score available at Bet365.

Manchester United vs Watford

Moving on to Sunday’s fixtures one of the two early games is Manchester United vs Watford at Old Trafford. After a brilliant start under manager Nigel Pearson, Watford appears to have returned to their former state having lost three and draw two of their last five.

Manchester United haven’t lost in their last five and will be strong favourites going into this one. Watford will be hoping the two-week Winter break gives them the upper-hand with United playing in Belgium on Thursday night. United are 8/13 to win this one and somebody to look out for will be Odion Ighalo. Ighalo will be looking to score his first goal for the club and what better way to get it than against your former club? Ighalo is 8/5 to score anytime on Sunday.

Wolves vs Norwich

Wolves take on Norwich in the other early game on Sunday with Norwich looking increasingly likely to fall back into the Championship, sitting 7 points below safety. Wolves put in an impressive performance in the Europa League on Thursday, thumping Espanyol 4-0 and are favourites again going into this one.

Wolves are a short-priced to win this one at 1/2 but with Jimenez in great goal-scoring form, Jimenez to score and Wolves to win at 11/8 might be a better bet.

Arsenal vs Everton

The late Premier League game on Sunday takes places at the Emirates as Mikel Arteta manages Arsenal against his former club Everton.

Both clubs have replaced their manager already this season and are unbeaten in their last 5. Everton have never won at the Emirates and we predict that stat to remain come Sunday.

Arsenal have scored in 4 of their last 5 and Everton have had BTTS in their last 4. Arsenal to win and both teams to score is 11/4 and 15/4 at 365 with Aubameyang to score in the game. Aubameyang has 15 in 24 this season and if Arsenal are to win the game there’s a strong chance he will score.

Liverpool vs West Ham

MNF sees Liverpool take on West Ham and no prizes for guessing what we’ve predicted for this one. Liverpool haven’t lost a Premier League game all season and everything points to that continuing on Monday night. West Ham have lost four of their last five and conceded 2 or more in four of the five.

Liverpool and over 2.5 goals is 4/9 best priced so to get some value you might need to add in a goalscorer.

Add in Mane and that takes it to 11/10. For anyone who believes David Moyes’ men can pull off a huge shock they are 6/1 to draw and 14/1 to get the win.
