The Clarets have eased a lot of pressure of themselves with back to back wins in the top flight. So they are settling down it would seem after a tricky start. They will be expecting to put more points on the board as they welcome the Terriers to Turf Moor on the weekend. Huddersfield are rooted to the foot of the table with just the two points. Read our Burnley v Huddersfield betting tips for more.

The Clarets have picked up the pace with back to back wins in the Premier League now having taken down Bournemouth and Cardiff. So they are over their hump of four straight losses and there is a good chance of more points in this one. Because Huddersfield are not likely to raise too much of a threat in this one then under 2.5 goals looks to be the way to go which is at 8/15 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 1:37 pm). Burnley’s home form is W1 L2 so far this season.
They thumped Bournemouth 4-0 in their last home game but we are going to roll with the far more conservative option of a Burnley 1-0 correct score option at 11/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 1:37 pm). The Clarets have scored five goals and have conceded exactly five goals at home this season. They are also five points worse off than they were at this stage of last season’s campaign. But there have been more positives from them lately and they will expect to push on. They would probably expect to be in line for their third clean sheet of the season too.
When you are down you are down and the Terriers certainly are at the moment. They have collected just the two points this season and are sat at the foot of the table because of goal difference. They have conceded sixteen goals this season so are massively vulnerable. Going forward they have managed to produce just the three goals all season and both teams not to score is at 7/10 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 1:37 pm). The Terriers go into the weekend action on a three-match losing streak.
Away from home, they have a D1 L2 record for the season and they have scored exactly one goal in each of those three road games. Again, that is all the goals that they have come up with this season. All three of those goals all appeared in the first half of matches as well which adds up to two of the three away games being level at 1-1 at halftime. The halftime draw for the game is at 20/21 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 1:37 pm). Huddersfield have actually conceded fewer shots per game on average than Burnley have done this season, but they are five goals worse off in goals against than the Clarets.
Last season’s meetings in the Premier League were non-events really as both games ended in a 0-0 draw. It means that the Clarets are undefeated in their last five games against the Terriers now with a W3 D2 record on the board. Both teams have scored in just four of the last eleven meetings.
We have to stick with Burnley to come up with the goods in this one. They have started to produce and they should be able to expose the Terriers who are just badly out of shape at the moment. Home win.

The Terriers are rooted to the foot of the table having picked up just the two points. They are struggling badly and they may not get a respite in this one. Tottenham showed a bit of character to snap a losing streak in picking up an away win at Brighton last weekend. Read our Huddersfield v Tottenham betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 24th, 2018 at 11:52 p.m.)
The Terriers have been having a rough time of things this season with just the two points on the board so far. They have lost their last two and the goals have been really hard to come by for them. They have scored just the three goals all season in their six games. Their home form reads D1 L2 and they have yet to hit the back of the net on home soil. A Tottenham to win to nil option is at 6/5 odds* (betting odds taken on September 25th, 2018 at 5:10 pm).
That’s even with the lack of clean sheets that Spurs have picked up. They are still value to get one on the weekend. The Terriers have won just two of their last thirteen league home games now, losing seven of those. They have failed to score in seven of their last eight Premier League home fixtures as well. Both teams not to score is at 3/4 odds* (betting odds taken on September 25th, 2018 at 5:10 pm) and we are taking that in our Huddersfield v Tottenham betting tips.
Spurs collected a win out at Brighton last weekend and that was a much-needed success from them as well because they have had lost their previous two league games. Spurs have only the one clean sheet to their name this season which is surprising from them really. They almost got one against Brighton last weekend, conceding in the 90th minute of the game. Spurs are W3 L1 on their travels this season, the loss happening at Watford at the start of September. They have scored in each and every league game played this season.
In the bet365 correct score market, a Tottenham 1-0 option is at 11/2 odds or you could push to 6/1 for a 2-0* (betting odds taken on September 25th, 2018 at 5:10 pm). Harry Kane has not been at his sharpest this season and even he has admitted that. But he still clearly leads the goalscorer markets for the match. Spurs have not been behind at halftime this season away from home and a Tottenham/Tottenham half-time/ full-time bet may have plenty of appeal in the game with the Terrors struggling so badly.
Tottenham recorded back to back wins to nil over Huddersfield last weekend, scoring six goals in total. They bagged a 4-0 win in this corresponding fixture from the last term. That was the first meeting between them since a 1973 League Cup tie so there is little recent history between them.
We are going to go with the away win to nil for our Huddersfield Tottenham predictions. The Terriers just look capable of holding out at the moment against a good top six side. They are leaking goals and Tottenham can expose that.

Leicester suffered a bit of a bruising defeat at the hands of Bournemouth last weekend and that leaves them on back to back defeats. So they are just in danger of hitting a bit of a slump but they may get a chance to turn things around on the weekend. They play host to Huddersfield who are still searching for their first league win of the new term. Read our Leicester v Huddersfield betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 18th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.)
Things are just heading towards a slump for Leicester after having suffered back to back defeats in the Premier League. They have only taken the one clean sheet all season as well but this could be a decent enough occasion to back them to earn one. Leicester to win to nil is at 11/8 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 18th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.). So far on home soil, they have produced a win over Wolves and suffered a one-goal margin defeat against Liverpool.
They were destroyed by Bournemouth last weekend in a 4-2 loss and their two goals came in the final two minutes of the game to add a little bit of respectability to the scoreline. The Foxes have scored 75% of their goals in the second half of matches this season. So that could lead you down the path of a draw/Leicester half-time/ full-time wager which is at 3/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 18th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.). Jamie Vardy is the first goalscorer favorite.
It has been a big struggle for Huddersfield this season. They have arranged to get just the two points on the board this season in draws against Cardiff and Everton. They slipped to a 1-0 defeat against Crystal Palace on home soil last weekend and that first win of the season looks some way off for them. Away from home, they are W1 L1 and they did score exactly one goal in both of those games. But that have managed just the three goals in total this season across their five league games.
We can only see this one ending under 2.5 goals as it is hard to imagine that the Terriers are going to get more than one goal on the board in this one. Both of the goals that they have scored this season have come in the first half of matches. Of the nine goals that Huddersfield have shipped this season, six of them have been in the 15 minute period before half time. So that is clearly when they switch off the most. A Leicester 2-0 correct score option is at 6/1 odds for the game* (Betting Odds were taken from September 18th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.).
Leicester came out on top in last season’s Premier League meetings, collecting four points from their two matches with the Terriers. The Foxes are unbeaten in their last four against Huddersfield in all competitions and undefeated in seven league games against them. Leicester have won their last five home games against the Terriers.
We can only see a home win being produced in this one and that is or simple Leicester v Huddersfield betting tip. The Foxes are able to get things going as an attacking unit and the same cannot be said of the Terriers.
19th September 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Toffees have made an unbeaten start to the season with five points on the board. However, their defence has been pretty leaky, something that new boss Marco Silva need to get to work on. Still, they are scoring so that’s plastering over the cracks. They surely have winnable match at home against the struggling Terriers to come. Read our Everton v Huddersfield betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.)
The Toffees have a W1 D2 record for the season and their defence has been their big let down so far. Both drawn matches that they have picked up were 2-2 draws against Wolves and Bournemouth and with their 2-1 home success over Southampton squeezed in here, all three of their games have made it above the 2.5 goal line.
However, for this one, we are going to shoot under 2.5 goals for 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.) because we can see the Toffees actually keeping the Terriers off the scoresheet. That’s a gamble because of how many goals Everton have conceded, but they aren’t likely to come under too much threat from the visitors on the weekend.
Cenk Tosun is the 4/1 first goalscorer favourite for this game* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.) as he looks to open his account for the campaign. Half of Everton’s goals this season have been scored by Richarlison who was sent off against Bournemouth last weekend. That’s two red cards for the Toffees already this season.
Everton’s lone home game so far this season in the top flight produced that 2-1 success over Southampton and the Toffees have scored the opening goal in each of their games this season. An Everton/Everton half-time/ full-time option makes for a very good betting tip. That is a 11/8 odds option* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.).
It has been a poor start from Huddersfield. Granted they had to face Chelsea and Man City in their opening two games and defeats in both can be forgiven. However at home last weekend against the newly-promoted Cardiff, the Terriers had a chance to get themselves up and running. But they failed as they only managed a 0-0 draw against the Bluebirds. That leaves Huddersfield with just the one goal scored this season, but as a positive, that was their first clean sheet of the season.
It is a seven-match winless streak that Huddersfield are on in the top flight at the moment and they have failed to score in five of those seven. It does mean that both teams NOT to score looks something of a sound bet in this one at 7/10 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.). The Terriers were poor on the road last season, winning just three times (D5 L11) and they didn’t get a win against anyone who ended up in the top half of the table on the road. The Terriers scored only 12 away goals last season and already they look to be under immense pressure.
Everton landed back to back 2-0 wins over Huddersfield last season in the top flight. That was their first games since a 2010 Carling Cup meetings. Looking back and a long way at that, Everton are undefeated in nine games against the Terriers and they are on a three-match winning streak at home against them.
Everton should be strong enough to close out the game in this one. Huddersfield are not much of an attacking threat. For our betting tips for the game, we have to side with Everton getting the win and with their first clean sheet of the season as well. Everton to win to nil. Another 2-0 repeat scoreline in their favour appeals too.
30th August 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Terriers have had a tough start to the new season but they have been up against Chelsea and Manchester City so it is hard to read a lot from that. This is where the season could really start for them as they go on the hunt for their first points. They face up to a Cardiff side who battled their way to their first point of the season with a draw against Newcastle last weekend. Read our Huddersfield v Cardiff betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken on August 21st, 2018 at 11:19 p.m.)
It has been a bit of an ugly start from Huddersfield, but the games that they have played in have to be taken into perspective. There was a tough 3-0 home loss against Chelsea on the opening weekend of the season. They went to the Etihad last weekend to face Man City and took a 6-1 hammering. So their season really starts on the weekend and they have to make the most of this opportunity on home soil against a newly-promoted club. This is probably the first game of their season where we will get to see where they really are at. Either way, this looks for all the world as if it is going to be a low scoring affair and under 2.5 goals is at 1/2 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 21st, 2018 at 11:19 p.m.). It is likely that they will get Jonas Lossl back in goal after Ben Hammer made two big blunders against Man City last weekend.
Zanka is likely to still be missing for this one, while Jonathan Hogg and Aaron Mooy, who both missed out last weekend, could get back into the lineup. So they could be a little stronger for this one. The Terriers have failed to score in five of their last six home games in the Premier League and both teams not to score is at 7/10 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 21st, 2018 at 11:19 p.m.). The Terriers are on a three-match losing streak at home as well now and have been losing at both half time and full time in each of those last three home games. This feels like a massive game for David Wagner’s men on the weekend. Last season Huddersfield posted a W6 D5 L8 record on home soil in the top flight but they did beat the other two newly-promoted sides that came up with them (Brighton and Newcastle).
The Bluebirds collected their first point of the season last weekend as they played out a 0-0 draw at home against Newcastle. The Magpies missed a last minute penalty kick against them though. After their opening 2-0 loss at Bournemouth, Cardiff are also looking for their first goal of the season and in the grander scheme of things, they will have wanted more out of this start. They will be desperate for points against Huddersfield because following this game they have Arsenal, Chelsea and then Man City in their next three games. As a positive Cardiff got Kenneth Zohore back from injury last weekend and he should hold on to his starting spot as they are going to need a big influence from him this season. Zohore is a 13/5 anytime goalscorer option for the fixture* (Betting Odds were taken on August 21st, 2018 at 11:19 p.m.).
Cardiff’s system is built on hard graft and long balls. They have produced an average of 11 shots per game this season which far outnumbers the amount that Huddersfield have produced. But again the Terriers have had much tougher games than Cardiff have done. They have looked vulnerable in defence, especially from set pieces and so far a lack of quality to finish chances has evaded them. This is probably going to be a really tight game and we can’t look past the value of 11/8 odds on a 0-0 Half Time Correct Score for our Huddserfield v Cardiff predictions* (Betting Odds were taken on August 21st, 2018 at 11:19 p.m.).
The last time these two were together was in the 2016/17 Championship season with Cardiff running out winners in both meetings. The Bluebirds are actually on a four match winning streak against the Terriers and are W5 D1 in their last six against them in league contests. Cardiff have scored at least two goals in each of their last five wins against Huddersfield and have netted exactly three goals in each of their last three games against them.
Tough game to read really as neither have produced much of note so far. Huddersfield have to rally themselves to make the most of home advantage in this one and because of that, we are just going to edge the Terriers to get the win and by nothing more than by a one goal margin.
25th August 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Man City were dealt a bit blow in midweek as midfielder Kevin de Bruyne has been ruled out for three months. Still, you would expect them to have enough cover in their expensively-assembled squad to handle themselves here. Huddersfield are heavy underdogs for this game but they gave City a tough time of things last season in the top flight. Read our Man City v Huddersfield betting tips for our thoughts on how this one will go.
Man City 1/10
* (Betting Odds were taken on August 17th, 2018 at 7:48 p.m.)
At some point, the Citizens will likely miss Kevin de Bruyne who has been ruled out for three months. At the moment though and in the near future, they do have a good sequence of matches in front of them. They began their title defence with a solid 2-0 win out at Arsenal last weekend in what could have been a tricky game on the road. But they showed why they are the best side in the country. Raheem Sterling was back on the scoreboard after his prolific season for the Citizens last term and he opened the scoring at the Emirates. Sterling is at 4/5 odds in the bet365 anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken on August 17th, 2018 at 7:48 p.m.). Sergio Aguero is the obvious favourite in the market but price-wise doesn’t appeal as much. Along with De Bruyne, Danilo and Eliaquim Mangala are also out, with David Silva a doubt.
Manchester City have collected wins in all but five of their last 37 league matches and only in two last season did they fail to score. Their form at the Etihad was fantastic with a W16 D2 L1 record, the only visitors to win there being Manchester United. Manchester City scored an average of 3.2 goals per home game which leads us to the bet365 correct score market where a Manchester City 3-0 option is at 11/2 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 17th, 2018 at 7:48 p.m.). The Citizens have netted at least two goals in 26 of their last 32 league games and in all but two of their last 18 home games, the Citizens have scored at least two goals.
It wasn’t a great performance from Huddersfield on the opening weekend of the season as they went down 3-0 at home against Chelsea. They weren’t that competitive really and never looked close to avoiding defeat. This could be a bigger struggle for them. But the Terriers have drawn their last three away games in the Premier League and they did produce a surprise in holding out for a 0-0 draw in this fixture last season. There have been under 2.5 goals in each of Huddersfield last five away games. But that looks a risky option for this one at 21/10 odds considering how uncompetitive they were at home against Chelsea last weekend. Their defence has suffered a setback with Zanka out injured. Juninho Bacuna and Isaac Mbenza are still sidelined for them.
Ben Hamer will get another chance between the sticks as Jonas Lossl isn’t quite ready to go for the Terriers. Huddersfield posted a poor W3 D5 L11 record on their top-flight travels last season. There was no win for them against any of the top half of the table finishers last season. Getting goals on the board was a big problem for them as they returned only 12 goals in their 19 away games at an average of 0.6 per game. They managed a clean sheet in only 16% of their away games which heaped tremendous pressure on them. There may not be much in this for them and a Huddersfield +2.75 Asian Handicap which means that you would get a win if they lose by no more than two goals. That is a 19/20 odds option* (Betting Odds were taken on August 17th, 2018 at 7:48 p.m.).
The games between City and Huddersfield last season were a lot closer than expected. City had to come from behind on the road to bank a 2-1 win against them, while they were held to a 0-0 draw on home soil. Those were the first league meetings since 2000. In the last four meetings in all competitions, Man City are W2 D2 against the Terriers with both drawn matches in that sequence 0-0 scorelines.
We are going to do the obvious and back the Citizens to claim the victory and it has be to nil as well. It’s unlikely the Terriers are going to mount too much of a threat. Even that option is not great value so we are going to take a step at a Man City 3-0 in the correct score market for our main Man City v Huddersfield betting tip.

The Terriers battled hard to keep themselves in the Premier League last season and succeeded. It was a good effort from them in the end and they will be looking to cause an upset in this season opener for them. Chelsea have had a tough time of things over the summer and there looks as if there is a lot of work ahead for new boss Maurizio Sarri who may struggle to get what he wants out of the squad that he has. Read our Huddersfield v Chelsea predictions for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken on August 8th, 2018 at 8:12 p.m.)
The Terriers did fantastically well to get themselves safe at the end of last season. They picked up precious draws against both Man City and Chelsea inside their final three games of last season to help ensure survival. The Terriers collected a W6 D5 L8 record on home soil last season in the top flight and they were a bit short of goals, which was really the only thing to fault them over. They averaged 0.8 goals per home game last season and we don’t see their output improved drastically.
We are looking under 2.5 goals at bet365 for 17/20 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 8th, 2018 at 8:12 p.m.) for our Huddersfield v Chelsea betting tips. There is a stat to back that up as Huddersfield’s last ten Premier League have all ended under the goal line. Troubling for them though they have failed to score in 5 of their last 7 home games in the top flight. Overall home and away they won just one of their last ten.
Chelsea look to be in a bit of a mess at the moment and if Sarri is going to turn the club around then that is going to take some time. So time is against him and the other thing is a lack of quality at the club. They look very short of quality across the back line playing the back four that the manager wants them to do, while they are crying out for a goalscorer as well with Alvaro Morata looking so short on confidence. We are going to take a punt on both teams not to score at 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 8th, 2018 at 8:12 p.m.).
We see this being a low scoring affair as Chelsea may well struggle up front. There hasn’t been enough done in the summer through the transfer market to change things and they are unlikely to put too much faith in their youngsters. So we can see a difficult season ahead for the Blues, especially early on as they try and get going under the new system. Chelsea did take a W10 D3 L6 record on the road last season but they lost four of their last seven games away from home.
Last season’s meetings in the Premier League saw Chelsea collect four points from their two games against the Terriers. They took a 3-1 win on the road before a 1-1 draw back at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea are undefeated in their last four games against the Terriers but both teams have scored in each of the last four meetings.
Chelsea look a long way short of where they should be and Sarri’s tactics are going to take a while to kick in. There could be a decent chance to oppose a Chelsea win in this game and we are actually going to that by banking on the draw. The Terriers, full of new-season energy can dig their heels in against a light-weight looking Blues.
9th August 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Terriers can relax on the final day of the season having produced a pretty amazing feat of survival having taken back to back draws at Manchester City and then Chelsea. Those two points keep them up in the top flight for next season. Can they put a bit of shine on all of that go and take a home win against Arsenal who lost at Leicester in midweek?
Arsenal 3/4, Draw 14/5, Huddersfield 10/3* (Betting Odds taken at 10:55 p.m. on May 9th, 2018)
It has been a tremendous finish from Huddersfield having taken a point out at Manchester City with a 0-0 scoreline and then a 1-1 at Chelsea to follow that up. With that point at Stamford Bridge in midweek, they are completely safe for the season. The Terriers can therefore just enjoy their Sunday out. Their home form is at W6 D5 L7 for the season and they have won just one of their last four on home soil. Goals have been few and far between for them as they have scored just the two in their last four played. Given the way that they have defended lately then the temptation would be to go under 2.5 goals with BetVictor at 7/5 odds* (betting odds taken on May 9th, 2018 at 6:10 a.m.). Each of their last four home games have gone under 2.5 goals. But then you would perhaps wonder if they are just going to ease off now with their survival secured. The Terriers have produced just sixteen goals in their eighteen home games this season bit defensively they haven’t been all that bad having conceded an average of 1.3 goals per game. They have taken a clean sheet in 39% of their home games this term.
Arsenal’s awful away form continued with a defeat out at Leicester in midweek. That is seven league away games for the Gunners in 2018 and they have produced seven defeats. Arsenal’s away form is just W3 D4 L11 for the season and there has been some calamitous defending from them on their travels. Given how good their home form has been it is just so strange that they have not put anything together on the road. Both teams to score at BetVictor is at 8/13 odds* (betting odds taken on May 9th, 2018 at 6:10 a.m.) for the game as the Gunners do pose a threat going forward and they have scored in each of their last nine Premier League games home and away combined. Each of their last ten games have finished above the 2.5 goals line and they have shipped at least two goals in each of their last four away from the Emirates. In total they have taken a clean sheet in just 17% of their away games and currently, they are on an eight-match winless streak of away form and are without a clean sheet in nine on their travels.
Arsenal were 5-0 home winners earlier in the season over the Terriers. That is back to back wins over them that they have taken. In the last four meetings, three of which were cup games, Arsenal are W3 D1. This season’s earlier meeting was the first league contest between them since the old Division 1 in 1972.
The Terriers have put in some stronger performances to end the season with and there shouldn’t be any reason why they can’t take advantage of Arsenal’s poor away form this season to go and get themselves a good point to finish off the season with.
11th May 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
In showing a bit of character and fight, Chelsea have made the race for a top-four finish interesting. The Blues took a 1-0 win over Liverpool on the weekend and if they win this one they would pull level on points with the Reds. The Blues go into the midweek action just two points back of fourth-placed Spurs. Huddersfield got a great point against Man City at the Etihad on the weekend. They need one more to guarantee survival.
Chelsea 1/6, Draw 11/2, Huddersfield 18/1* (Betting Odds taken at 00:06 a.m. on May 6th, 2018)
It is four wins on the bounce for Chelsea now and they have been showing some character in that sequence, fighting back from being behind against Southampton and Burnley to get wins, then holding off Liverpool on the weekend. That equals their best run of form for the season and all they can do is win their last two games and hope that Liverpool or Spurs don’t. It’s been better from the Blues without looking anywhere near as good as they were last season. Chelsea to win to nil back at the Bridge in this one is at 8/11 odds with William Hill* (Betting Odds taken at 2:05 a.m. on May 7th, 2018). Chelsea’s home form is W11 D3 L4 for the season and they are W3 D1 L1 in their last five at the Bridge. They don’t look as if they are going to go out and put a hatful of goals on the board though, and in the William Hill correct score market a Chelsea 1-0 is at 13/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 2:05 a.m. on May 7th, 2018) and at this stage it is just all about the result. There’s nothing to lose for the Blues at this points, so it’s throw the kitchen sink at the Terriers time.
The Terriers bagged a point against Manchester City on the weekend, with the champions not quite being on their game. But credit due to Huddersfield for digging in there and getting what could be a precious reward in the long run. They only need a draw in this one to be safe at the end of the season and so they will probably be turning up in a bullish, defensive mood. The Terriers have drawn their last two away games in the top flight and have won just one of their last nine games on the road (D2 L6). They have only won three times on their travels this term so it’s not likely that they are going to pull off a shock win. They have failed to score in any of their nine visits to current top ten sides this season (D2 L7). Both teams not to score with William Hill at 8/13 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 2:05 a.m. on May 7th, 2018) looks the obvious option, therefore. The Terriers have produced just the eleven away goals all season and they have done well enough at the back in that each of their last four away games have ended under the 2.5 goal line. Can they get their survival point?
Chelsea have won back to back games against Huddersfield and both with a 3-1 scoreline as well Before this season’s Premier League win over the Terriers, the Blues had won a 2008 FA Cup home game against them. Going back, Chelsea are on a seven-match winning streak against the Terriers in all competitions. The earlier Premier League meetings this season was the first league clash since the 1983/84 Old Division 2.
Chelsea can deliver the home win and keep things really interesting in the top four for the final weekend of the season. It’s just about winning for them, no matter the overall performance or scoreline. Look for a home win by the one-goal margin.
7th May 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Manchester City are closing in on setting more Premier League records for the most wins and the most number of points in a season. They haven’t let off the pace as they destroyed West Ham last weekend. That could be bad news for Huddersfield who go to the Etihad just three points above the relegation zone.
Manchester City 1/18, Draw 12/1, Huddersfield 25/1* (Betting Odds taken at 9:44 p.m. on April 30th, 2018)
What is there left to say about Man City this season? Nothing much. Since winning the title they have just gone from strength to strength instead of easing back. They have strung together a three-match winning streak, scoring twelve goals in the process. They are just out and hungry to break as many Premier League records as they can. They have already hit the 100 goals mark for the season and it’s likely that more will be coming on the weekend. In the betVictor correct score market, the shortest-priced option is a Manchester City 3-0 at 5/1* (Betting Odds took at 10:35 p.m. on May 1st, 2018) just to highlight how easy the bookmaker thinks this is going to be the for Champions. City’s home record for the season is W15 D1 L1 and they have averaged 3.4 goals per game at the Etihad this term. They have scored in each and every home game and 67% of their home goals have come in the second half of matches. Manchester City have been up 1-0 at half time in seven of their home games this term. 65% of their games at the Etihad have ended over 3.5 goals.
A bit of a thankless task ahead then for Huddersfield it would seem. The Terriers are just three points ahead of the bottom three heading into the weekend so could be in bigger trouble after this match. Their away form for the season is W3 D3 L11 so that’s not good to start with. They have taken one point from their last three on the road, which was a draw at Brighton in their last away game. The Terriers have only managed the eleven away goals all season and they have failed to score in 71% of their road games. Manchester City to win to nil is pretty much written all over this at 1/2 odds with BetVictor* (Betting Odds taken at 10:35 p.m. on May 1st, 2018). Huddersfield haven’t taken a clean sheet in any of their last fourteen away games but they have been level at half time in ten of their 17 games away from the John Smiths. That would be something of a success if they can get to the break level. 78% of the away goals they have conceded this season have been in the second half of matches.
Manchester City produced a late winner when they visited Huddersfield earlier this season. That was the first ever Premier League game between the two sides. They met in the FA Cup last season with City winning a replay 5-1. Those cup games were the first between them since meeting in the Division 1 1999/200 season.
It’s just all about the manner of victory for Manchester City then, just how many goals that they can stick on the board. They look full of energy still, powerful and most importantly of all, hungry. The Terriers may not get much of a look in, home win to nil.
