Weekend Premier League Betting

There are four televised games this weekend, headlined by Liverpool v Man United at Anfield on Sunday. Below are our Premier League betting tips for those games.

Man City v West Brom

bt-sport1 Saturday 21st March / 12.45pm

Man City1/3Generally
West Brom6/5Betfred, BetVictorWilliam Hill

Manuel Pelligrini’s side have lost four of their last five matches – and given that West Brom have kept four clean sheets in their last five Premier League matches, it may well be worth backing the Baggies on the Asian Handicap here getting a one goal start at best odds of 37/20 with Bet365. This bet means that so long as West Brom don’t lose by two goals or more, you don’t lose (money back if they lose by one).

City’s last three games have seen less than 3 goals, while West Brom have been involved in four ‘Under 2.5 Goal’ games in their last five matches, so take advantage of Betfred’s very big looking 11/8 on another ‘Under 2.5 Goal’ game here.

Finally in this game we will take a chance on backing a West Brom player to score the first goal. Tony Pullis’s side have scored more goals from set pieces than any other team in the Premier League (50%) and we like the look of free kick specialist Craig Gardner opening the scoring at 33/1 with Paddy Power. Back him each way.

West Ham v Sunderland

Sunderland4/1Betfred, William Hill

The Black Cats travel to East London in the hope of securing only their third victory away from the Stadium of Light all season, and their first win in seven games. West Ham though are in equally bad form, having lost their last three games – the last time they were victorious in the league was back on the 18th January against Hull, while they have collected just eight points since Christmas.

Sunderland were poor at home against Aston Villa last week when losing 0-4, but we feel the bookmakers have over-reacted and that they may be value to get something from the game under new manager Dick Advocaat. Back them at 4/1 with Betfred or William Hill to win, as well as taking the Asian Handicap (+0.5 goals) at 11/10 with BetVictor – so you win so long as West Ham don’t.

Jermain Defoe returns to Upton Park and he will be desperate to do well against his boyhood team, something he usually does when returning home to East London – he has scored four times in his last five league games against the Hammers. Take the 8/1 with Paddy Power on him scoring first here, each way.

Liverpool v Manchester United

SkySports1 Sunday 22nd March / 1.30pm

Liverpool23/20BetfredLadbrokes, William Hill
Manchester United14/5BetfredBet365BetVictor

This games bring together two in-form sides: Liverpool have won their last 5 league games and 10 of their last 13 (D3) – a run dating backing to a 3-0 defeat to United at Old Trafford in mid-December. Meanwhile, United have won 4 of their last 5 league games and their record in the corresponding period since December is W7, D4, L2.

Brendan Rodgers’  side at can be backed at 23/20 and we feel that is worth taking as the Reds have recently made Anfield a fortress – they haven’t lost there in their last 14 competitive matches.

Only Everton v Liverpool games have seen more red cards than Liverpool v United matches and we also suggest backing another one here at odds of 2/1 with Sky Bet.

Finally, we want to be with Daniel Sturridge to get the first goal here – he has scored in two of his three matches for Liverpool against United yet can be backed each-way at a huge 5/1 with Paddy Power to open the scoring.

Hull v Chelsea

SkySports1 Sunday 22nd March / 4pm

Chelsea1/2Betfred, BetVictor, Ladbrokes, William Hill

The Blues have an excellent record against Hull having won 9 of their last 11 games (D2). Six of their last 9 league meetings have also seen Chelsea shut out Hull and the first bet we suggest is on Chelsea to win ‘to nil’ at 6/5 with Paddy Power.

Eden Hazard has scored in his last two games and he should be backed at 6/1 with Paddy Power to score first here, while we feel it may also pay to back Loic Remy to score at any time during the game – the Frenchman has scored three times in three games against Steve Bruce’s side. Take Stan James‘ odds of 7/5 on him scoring.

We also suggest backing the 1-0 Chelsea win at 5/1 with William Hill (two of Chelsea’s last five games have been 1-0 wins) and the 2-0 Chelsea win at 11/2 with William Hill – who refund losing Correct Score bets on any game that ends 0-0. No less than 7 of Chelsea’s 28 league games this season have been 2-0 wins (25%).

Suggested Acca

An accumulator on Man City-West Brom (draw), plus Sunderland, Liverpool and Chelsea to win can be backed at best odds of 88/1 with Betfred.
