We preview both the televised Premier League games on Sunday, featuring Burnley v Crystal Palace at Turf Moor and then Swansea v Newcastle at the Liberty Stadium.
Burnley v Crystal Palace
|Crystal Palace (+0.5)||Asian Handicap||7/10||BetVictor|
|Crystal Palace 1-0||Correct Score||17/2||Betfair|
|Christian Benteke||Anytime Goalscorer||21/10||Unibet|
Frank de Boer takes his Crystal Palace side to Turf Moor knowing that a fourth consecutive defeat could mean an early departure from his role as Eagles boss.
His side have yet to score in their three league games so far this season and they face a Burnley side who have already beaten Chelsea and drawn with Tottenham.
Ironically both of those results were away from home, and they lost 1-0 to West Brom here last month – last season they secured Premier League survival with their home form, including 10 wins (two more than Manchester United at Old Trafford).
However, it is worth noting that the Clarets have now only won one of their last 7 league games at home (D2, L4) and best odds of 11/8 with Betfred offer no appeal.
Indeed, the likely return of Mamadou Sakho to the Palace defence could signal a turnaround in their season, and it’s worth remembering that Palace won 6 games on the road last season – no team outside of the top six won more games away from home. So, we like Palace (+0.5) on the Asian Handicap market at 7/10 with BetVictor.
With this bet you win if Palace either win or draw the game – while we also suggest backing them to win 1-0 at a stand-out price of 17/2 at Betfair, plus the 1-1 draw at 11/2 with Bet365 – who refund losing Correct Score bets on all games that finish 0-0.
Finally, Christian Benteke has scored Palace’s last four goals on the road – and he looks worth backing at 21/10 with Unibet to score a goal at any time in this game.
Swansea v Newcastle
|Renato Sanches||Anytime Goalscorer||15/2||Betfair|
|Swansea||To Win To Nil||29/10||Unibet|
|No||Both Teams To Score||10/11||Unibet|
Since Paul Clement’s appointment in January, Swansea have won 10 league games – the same number as Manchester United have managed over the same period.
Clement has Bayern Munich loanee Renato Sanches and the returning Wilfried Bony to deploy – with Sanches a particularly appealing 15/2 to score on his debut.
Despite finishing as champions last season, Newcastle only won 1 of their final 5 away games in the Championship (L2, D2), and lost 1-0 at Huddersfield last month.
By contrast, Swansea have won six of their last nine games here at the Liberty Stadium (D1, L2) with the two defeats coming against Spurs and Manchester United.
We also suggest backing Swansea to win ‘to nil’ at a best price 29/10 with Unibet, plus a bet on ‘No’ in the Both Teams To Score market at 20/21, also at Unibet – this bet would have won in all six of the games involving these sides so far this season.
