Premier League Matchday 28 Betting Preview

Due to the Carabao Cup final taking place this Sunday, Manchester City’s game against Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium and Aston Villa’s game against Sheffield United at Villa Park have been postponed, so this preview will be looking at the remaining eight games.

Norwich vs Leicester - Friday 8:00pm

Matchday 28 of the Premier League season will commence on Friday evening as Norwich host Leicester at Carrow Road, with both sides ambitions being polar opposites going into the fixture. Norwich go into the game rock bottom of the Premier League and destined to be returning to the Championship next season as the Canaries have only won four of their 27 Premier League games so far this season.

Leicester, on the other hand, have their sights set on the Champions League as Brendan Rodgers’ side find themselves third in the Premier League and nine points clear of Manchester United in fifth place. The Foxes aren’t enjoying their best run of form as they have failed to win any of their last 4 games, but given that Norwich have lost eight of their last 13 Premier League games, you’d imagine that Leicester will pick up the 3 points on Friday, with Sky Bet offering a 3/4 price on that being the case.

Brighton vs Crystal Palace - Saturday 12:30pm

The early kick-off this weekend will see the M23 derby between Brighton and Crystal Palace take place at the Amex Stadium. Thanks to their poor form of one win in their last 12 Premier League games, Brighton go into the game only four points clear of the relegation zone, with the gap growing smaller should the Seagulls fail to win and West Ham win.

Despite finding themselves five points clear of their rivals, Crystal Palace go into the game in equally poor form, as the Eagles have won only two of their last 12 Premier League games, with their last away victory coming against Burnley in November. Considering that 12 of Brighton’s last 17 games have been, and that Palace have scored in 11 of their last 16 games, it could be worth looking at BTTS in the game, with Sky Bet offering evens on that being the case.

Bournemouth vs Chelsea - Saturday 3:00pm

Chelsea go into their game against Bournemouth in poor form, having only won two of their last seven games, including a midweek 3-0 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League and will be looking to make amends for their 1-0 defeat to Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge back in December.

Bournemouth go into the game having lost 12 of their last 16 Premier League games and just two points above the relegation zone. As well as poor current form, one similarity between the two sides is their high percentage of games with over 2.5 goals, as six of Bournemouth’s last seven games have had over 2.5 goals, and five of Chelsea’s last six games have had over 2.5 goals. Sky Bet are offering a 4/5 price on there being over 2.5 goals in the game.

Newcastle vs Burnley - Saturday 3:00pm

Another 3 o’clock kick-off sees Newcastle host Burnley at St James’ Park. Lack of goals has been an issue for Newcastle as of late as Steve Bruce’s side have only scored in one of their last 4 games, as a result, the Magpies are winless in their last four Premier League games.

Burnley, on the other hand, go into the game in good form, as the Clarets have won four of their last 5 Premier League games, with two of the wins coming against Manchester United and Leicester. Going on form, it’s difficult to see Newcastle getting anything out of the game and Sky Bet are offering a 19/10 price on Burnley picking up the three points and 2/1 on the game ending as a draw.

West Ham vs Southampton - Saturday 3:00pm

West Ham go into their game against Southampton in desperate need of a win, as the Hammers find themselves in the relegation zone as a result of losing nine of their last 13 Premier League games, but will take hope in the fact that one of the four games that they didn’t lose was a 1-0 victory over Southampton back in December.

Despite the fact that Southampton aren’t in the best form at the minute, with the Saints losing three of their last five Premier League games, however, their away form has been excellent, as they have won four of their last five Premier League away games, with two of the wins coming against Chelsea and Leicester. Sky Bet are offering a 17/10 price on West Ham picking up the three points and a 6/4 price on Southampton continuing their good form away from home.

Watford vs Liverpool - Saturday 5:30pm

The late kick-off on Saturday sees Watford host Liverpool at Vicarage Road. Despite a recent resurgence under Nigel Pearson, Watford still find themselves in the relegation zone, with their recent form of three defeats in their last four Premier League games preventing the Hornets from moving out of the bottom three.

Unfortunately for Watford, it looks like they won’t be moving out of the relegation zone any time soon as they face a Liverpool side that have won 18 straight Premier League games. Given that Liverpool have won 10 of their last 12 Premier League games to nil, it could be worth looking at the 6/4 price that Sky Bet are offering for Liverpool to win to nil.

Everton vs Manchester United - Sunday 2:00pm

Everton look rejuvenated under Carlo Ancelotti, with the Toffees winning five of their last nine Premier League games, including three wins in their last four home games. Their recent good form has resurrected Everton’s season as the Toffees find themselves in the race to play European football next season.

Despite their relatively poor form so far this season, Manchester United somehow find themselves fifth in the Premier League and just three points behind Chelsea in fourth place, with their recent 2-0 victory being a huge result in their pursuit of Champions League football next season. Consistency has been United’s issue this season, as they have failed to win more than two Premier League games in a row this season, but the signing of Bruno Fernandes has given United much more cutting edge and creativity upfront, and if they can play against Everton how they did against Watford, they should get the three points. The best price you can get for United to pick up the three points is 23/12, but if you think Everton will secure another home win, you can back them at 8/5.

Tottenham vs Wolves - Sunday 2:00pm

This weekend will also see the intriguing fixture between Tottenham and Wolves at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. With both Harry Kane and Heung-min Son being out of action for the remainder of the season, Tottenham’s hopes of securing Champions League next season look bleak as the Lilywhites have lost both games since Son suffered his injury.

Wolves aren’t going into the game in the best form in the Premier League as Nuno Santo’s men have picked up only two wins in their last eight Premier League games. It’s difficult to call a winner for this one given the form of both sides, however, given that Spurs have scored in 15 of their last 19 Premier League games and that Wolves have scored in 23 of their last 26 Premier League games, the stats are in favour of BTTS, with bet365 offering the best price of 19/20 on BTTS.
