Weekend Premier League Betting

There are five televised Premier League games this long Easter weekend, headlined by Arsenal v Liverpool on Saturday. Below are all our Premier League betting tips:

Arsenal v Liverpool

bt-sport1 Saturday 4th April / 12.45pm

Arsenal10/11William Hill
Draw14/5Bet365, Titanbet
Liverpool16/5Bet365, Betfred, William Hill

Liverpool have won just 1 of their last 18 away games against the Gunners (D7, L10) and the visitors will be without the suspended Steven Gerrard and Martin Skrtel.

But Brendan Rodgers’ side have kept six consecutive clean sheets away from home in the league and have now gone nine hours and 19 minutes on the road since they last conceded, so we can see this game being very tight. Backing ‘Under 2.5 Goals’ at 23/20 with BetVictor looks a value bet – we would have priced this up at odds-on.

We also suggest backing Arsenal to win ‘to nil’ here at 13/5 with Coral, plus Correct Score bets on 1-0 and 2-0 home wins (Arsenal have scored exactly two goals in 6 of their last 7 games against Liverpool). Back those at 8/1 and 9/1 respectively with Betfred, who refund losing Correct Score bets on all televised games that finish 1-1.

Chelsea v Stoke

SkySports1 Saturday 4th April / 5.30pm

Chelsea3/10William Hill, Stan James

Jose Mourinho’s side have yet to lose this season in front of their own fans in the league and given that Stoke have not even scored against the Blues in 6 of their last 7 (and 10 of their last 12) matches it’s hard to disagree with the bookmakers assessment of another straight forward home win.

Chelsea’s defence is excellent at Stamford Bridge in the league – conceding just eight goals in their last 22 home games – and during that time have kept 16 clean sheets, so the first advice just has to be for Chelsea to keep yet another clean sheet at odds of  4/7 with Bet365, while backing them to win ‘to nil’ at 4/5 with BetVictor looks a better option than simply backing them to win at 3/10.

Diego Costa has scored 19 league goals this season, and he can be backed to score first here at 5/2 with William Hill – who will refund losing First Goalscorer stakes should your player score second instead. However, at a big price, it might also be worth backing both Blues’ centre backs to score first each-way – Gary Cahill is available at 22/1 and John Terry at 16/1 with Bet365 who offer 1/3 odds of the ‘place’ in this market – if your player scores at any time in the game.

We also suggest backing the 2-0 Chelsea win at best odds of 9/2 with Bet365 – they have won 2-0 at home on six occasions already this season.

Burnley v Spurs

SkySports1 Sunday 5th April / 1.30pm

Burnley5/2Betfred, Paddy Power, William Hill

These sides have played three times already this season – twice in the FA Cup – with Tottenham winning both home games and a 1-1 draw at Turf Moor.

Both sides scored in all three of those games and given that Spurs have kept just one clean sheet in their last 13 Premier League away matches, backing ‘Both Teams To Score’ here at 7/10 with Ladbrokes may be the best bet of the game

Harry Kane remains in excellent form, his 19 goals in this season’s Premier League is the joint highest total, and he simply must be backed each-way at best odds of 9/2 with Paddy Power to score the first goal here.

Burnley’s Danny Ings has nine league goals himself, and he too should be backed to score first at stand-out odds of  7/1 with Stan James.

Finally, every single league game Tottenham have played this calendar year has seen 3 goals or more – that’s 11 consecutive matches. Indeed a remarkable 21 of their last 23 league games have done the same (the other two finished 0-0). We therefore strongly suggest backing ‘Over 2.5 Goals’ at best odds of 4/5 with Bet365.

Sunderland v Newcastle

SkySports1 Sunday 5th April / 4pm

Sunderland13/8William Hill, Coral

Newcastle21/10Betfred, Ladbrokes

Sunderland have won their last four games against Newcastle, but Sunderland are really struggling for form at present – they have managed just two wins in their last 16 Premier League matches at the Stadium of Light.

With that in mind we suggest backing the Magpies on the ‘Draw No Bet’ market at best odds of 11/10 with Sky Bet, BetfredPaddy Power or BetVictor.

Sunderland have failed to score in four of their last five Premier League home matches, while they have had seven 0-0’s this season and given that Newcastle have scored just 13 away goals, the best bet here may be on the ‘Under 2.5 Goals’ option at best odds of 4/6 with BetfredBetVictor or Titanbet.

With a low scoring game envisaged, we also feel a smart way to play this is to back the 1-0 Newcastle (15/2) and 1-0 Sunderland (13/2) scorelines with Betfred, as that firm will refund losing Correct Score bets on all televised games that finish 1-1 (which has been the final score twice in the last 6 games between these sides).

Crystal Palace v Man City

SkySports1 Monday 6th April / 8pm

Crystal Palace9/2Bet365, Betfred, Coral
Man City7/10Bet365, Betfred

Since they returned to the Premier League, Palace have lost all three of their matches with Manchester City, with the scorelines getting progressively worse (1-0 in Dec 2013, 2-0 in Apr 2014, 3-0 in Dec 2014) and you can get odds of 30/1 with BetVictor on a 4-0 City win to maintain that sequence.

Palace have turned their form around since Alan Pardew arrived at the start of January, including three wins in their last four league games, but they are still finding it hard to keep a clean sheet at home – it’s been 11 games since they did so at Selhurst Park. But they have managed to score themselves on 12 of 14 occasions at home and we feel backing both sides to score here at 8/11 with Bet365 is the best bet of the match.

It may therefore pay dividends to back a Palace player to score the first goal and Glen Murray, who has scored four times in as many Premier League games, looks over priced at 10/1 with Sky Bet (just 8/1 elsewhere). However, we also suggest backing Sergio Aguero at best odds of 7/2 with Titanbet – he is due a league goal.

Finally, we also suggest backing ‘Over 2.5 Goals’ at best odds of 4/5 with Betfred.
