Netherlands Women v Cameroon Women Prediction & Betting Tips, June 15th 2019

International Football Betting

Netherlands Women v Cameroon Women Premier League Preview, June 15th – 2.00pm

They left it late, very late indeed, but European Champions the Netherlands managed to open their World Cup 2019 with a win. They broke the hearts of New Zealand right at the end of their fixture. A win’s a win and they may get an easier time in this one against Cameroon who lost their opener against Canada. Read our Netherlands Women v Cameroon Women betting tips for more.

Netherlands Women v Cameroon Women Betting Odds*

Netherlands 1/7
Draw 6/1
Cameroon 20/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on June 12th, 2019 at 11:35 p.m.)


Netherlands Women News and Form

Jill Roord was the hero of the day as the Netherlands edged past New Zealand in their opening game. That was a 1-0 success for the Dutch in the fixture. They did the bulk of the attacking in the fixture, but there were moments at the back where they didn’t look to be totally switched on and the plucky New Zealanders had their chances. But opening nerves are done, and the Dutch played some slick football and times and have some star talent in their line up.

Vivianne Miedema and Lieke Martens are special players and they are 8/11 and 13/10 respectively in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on June 12th, 2019 at 11:35 p.m.). The win over New Zealand was their fourth win in a row and each of those successes were with a clean sheet. So even though they had to work hard in that opener, they are in pretty good shape at the moment. Can they get their forward line working?

Cameroon Women News and Form

Cameroon slipped to a 1-0 defeat against Canada in their opener. They didn’t offer up too much as an attacking unit and it was a matter of when, not if, that Canada got their goal. But the credit there for Cameroon, of course, is that they were not heavily beaten by one of the stronger nations in the women’s game.

This is a rare excursion for Cameroon against a stronger team. Ahead of the World Cup, the only notable teams they met was China and Spain and they both ended in defeat. The Netherlands are such a good team with the ball at their feet, that Cameroon are unlikely to see much of it in this fixture.

Who will win – Netherlands Women v Cameroon Women Predictions

This should be a much more comfortable win for the Netherlands. They were relieved with their late win against a well-organised New Zealand. The Dutch should be better and stronger for that experience. Netherlands to win to nil.

Odds on the favourites for 2019/20 Big Five European Leagues

Manchester City

Across the big five European leagues, there were no surprises this season as to where the titles ended up. Each of the favourites from the divisions were all successful. Looking forward twelve months from now, will it just be the same again?

Premier League 2019/20 Winner Odds*

Manchester City 8/11, Liverpool 11/4
* (betting odds taken from Paddy Power at 8:54 pm on May 19th, 2019)

This season’s Premier League title race was an epic. Manchester City and Liverpool locked horns pretty much all the way, and it wasn’t until the start of the new year that Manchester City clawed their way back into ascendancy. That started with their home win over the Reds on January 3rd, a game which they had gone into, seven points adrift of the Reds.

At the end of the day, they held their nerve brilliantly, winning their final fourteen fixtures of the league season to secure the title on the final day of the season. Pep Guardiola’s men are 8/11 to make it three in a row season* (betting odds taken from Paddy Power at 8:54 pm on May 19th, 2019). After having had the door slammed in their face of trying to earn their first Premier League title, Liverpool have to pick themselves back up and try to find a way to crack this remarkable City team.

Bundesliga 2019/20 Winner Odds*

Bayern Munich 8/13, Borussia Dortmund 13/2
* (betting odds taken from Paddy Power at 8:54 pm on May 19th, 2019)

This is another of the big five leagues that went down to the wire. All of the early form of the season was made by Borussia Dortmund. They raced out of the blocks while Bayern Munich, under new boss Niko Kovac took some time to get going. But it was Bayern Munich who started turning up the heat really from the start of December when they won thirteen of four games in a red-hot period of games. The tipping point in their favour came at the start of April as they crushed title rivals Dortmund 5-0.

Dortmund, who had gone undefeated from the start of the campaign through to mid-December, couldn’t keep up their pace. At the end of the even though they won eight of their last twelve games, costly slips away from home cost them. The interesting thing about next season’s Bundesliga is that Bayern are losing Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery, while Dortmund will see Christian Pulisic go to Chelsea and Jadon Sancho is being hotly tipped for a move away as well. Who will adapt better to the changes?

Serie A 2019/20 Winner Odds*

Juventus 4/7, Inter 5/1, Napoli 11/2
* (betting odds taken from Paddy Power at 8:54 pm on May 19th, 2019)

Once again Serie A was a non-contest. Juventus romped to their eighth straight league title. Change will be coming next season as Juve are parting company with Massimiliano Allegri. But will that be enough to see their dominance in the country dwindle? It doesn’t seem too likely. It is a really tough thing to imagine how other contenders like Napoli or Inter are going to close the gap enough on Juventus, regardless of whoever is in charge.

La Liga Premier 2019/20 Winner Odds*

Barcelona 10/11, Real Madrid 11/10, Atletico 33/1
* (betting odds taken from Paddy Power at 8:54 pm on May 19th, 2019)

The demise of Real Madrid this season has been somewhat spectacular. Just about everything went wrong for them. After winning the Champions League for the third straight season last summer, boss Zinedine Zidane walked away, noticing that the club was likely to go into decline. It did. They started the season with Julen Lopetegui.

He was sacked in October to be replaced by Santiago Solari, becoming the official coach the following month. He was out of the door in March with Zinedine Zidane coming back. They ended the season with three losses in four, finishing 19 points behind winners Barcelona and eight behind second-placed Atletico Madrid. So it was fairly routine at the end of the day for Barcelona, who grabbed the title again losing just three times all campaign.

Ligue 1 2019/20 Winner Odds*

PSG, Lille, Lyon (odds to be announced)

There was little challenge to PSG in the title race in Ligue 1 this season. Even though their form slumped badly towards the end of the season, they still won at a canter ahead of second-placed Lille. This is a more extreme example than Serie A is really, because the money and the power that the Parisians have over everyone else on the domestic front is unmatched and they aren’t likely going to be touched next campaign either.

Manchester City v Watford Prediction & Betting Tips, 18th May 2019

Manchester City

Manchester City v Watford FA Cup Final Preview, 18th May 5.00pm

The Citizens will line up at Wembley on the weekend, the final leg of their attempted domestic treble for the season. Once again it has been so impressive from them and now with the pressure of the Premier League title race over they are going to be dialled in. Watford will be on the hunt for their first FA Cup title in what is just their second appearance in the Final. Read our Manchester City v Watford betting tips for more.

Manchester City v Watford Betting Odds*

Man City 1/5
Draw 6/1
Watford 10/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on May 14th, 2019 at 11:51 p.m.)


Manchester City News and Form

The Citizens won the final fourteen games of their Premier League campaign to get the title. Back in February, they collected the EFL Cup via a penalty shoot-out against Chelsea at Wembley. Now it’s back to business in the FA Cup for them. Across all competitions, Manchester City have won fourteen of their last fifteen games. The one loss in that sequence happened in the Champions League against Spurs.

If you want to look back a little further then the Citizens are W20 D1 L1 in their last 22 games in all competitions. The Citizens have conceded just the one goal in their last five games played now and it’s been something of a stellar campaign from them in the FA Cup. They opened with back to home wins over Rotherham and Burnley by a 7-0 and a 5-0 scoreline respectively. They then won at Newport in the fifth round. They did have to fight back from 2-0 down at Championship side Swansea in the quarterfinals.

On their visit to Wembley for the semi-final, they took on Brighton. Gabriel Jesus put City on the board in the opening five minutes and that was it. Brighton barely raised an attacking effort in the game and City booked their spot in the final. City have won the title five times before (their most recent in 2011) and have also finished runners up five times. The last time they were in the FA Cup final, they suffered a shock reverse as they were toppled 1-0 by Wigan in 2013. So it just goes to show that not everything goes their way every single time.

Manchester City v Watford Head to Head

The Citizens won both 2018/19 EPL league meetings
City have won their last ten games in all competitions against Watford
Each of the last five meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
Both teams have scored in each of the last three meetings
Man City are W3 D2 L1 against Watford from previous FA Cup meetings

Watford News and Form

The only previous FA Cup final that Watford have been in was back in 1984 when John Barnes was in the team and Graham Taylor was manager. They lost that game 2-0 against Everton. So it has been a long wait for them to get their second. The Hornets did not have the greatest of form down the final stretch of the season. They picked up just the one win (90 minutes) in their final seven games of the season. They lost each of their last three, conceding a total of nine goals in those games.

So have they ran out of steam at the wrong time? That will be the worry for them. They haven’t taken a clean sheet in any competition since a 1-0 win at QPR in the FA Cup back in February. That is twelve match run with no clean sheet for them. That’s not the kind of thing that you want to read about going into a game against Manchester City. The Hornets have put together a pretty stable campaign in the FA Cup it has to be said, for most of it anyway. They came through two away ties against Woking and Newcastle in the third and fourth rounds respectively, collecting a 2-0 win in each of those games.

They were back out on the road in the fifth round, coming through a tricky tie at Loftus Road against Championship side QPR. That was a 1-0 win for the Hornets. They then got their first home game in the quarterfinals, which helped them over the line in a tough battle against fellow Premier League side Crystal Palace, Watford taking a 2-1 win there. Then in their semi-final at Wembley against Wolves, with just over ten minutes left in the game, it looked as if their run was over. They were trailing 2-0 but a piece of magic from Gerard Deulofeu and a last minute penalty from Troy Deeney sent the game to extra time. Deulofeu won it for them in the 104th minute.

Manchester City v Watford Tips & Odds

Manchester City to win to nil at 5/6
Man City to win by a two-goal margin 3/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on May 14th, 2019 at 11:51 p.m.)

Who will win – Manchester City v Watford Predictions

Manchester City will be refreshed and recharged ahead of this FA Cup Final. Their league title chase was stressful and that’s behind them now. They have handled Watford twice already this season and there’s no reason to expect this outcome to be any different. Man City to win to nil.

Swansea’s Potter favourite in next Brighton Manager Betting

Premiership Betting

Brighton were the first team to make a managerial move after the close of the 2018/19 EPL season. They gave Chris Hughton the boot after a disappointing campaign where the Seagulls had finished 17th in the table. They only managed to pick up three wins in their final 23 games of the season meaning that they had big relegation concerns hanging over them all the way.

Next Brighton Manager Select Odds*

Graham Potter 1/6
Phil Neville 5/1
Lee Johnson 5/1
Nathan Jones 12/1
Slavs Jokanovic 16/1
Frank Lampard 16/1
Steven Gerrard 16/1
Rafa Benitez 18/1
Chris Wilder 20/1
Saltor Bruno 20/1
Adi Hutter 20/1
Mikel Arteta 20/1
Claude Puel 20/1
Claudio Ranieri 25/1
Gennaro Gattuso 281
Gary Rowett 28/1
* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes on May 13th, 2019 at 4:04 pm)

It was only the lack of form from Cardiff in the end which really kept the Seagulls safe. Hughton made the move to Brighton in December 2014, getting the south coast club up to the Premier League in 2017. It was a good solid season that they had in their first ever Premier League campaign too, taking a 15th place finish.

Brighton are already 2/1 odds to suffer relegation from the Premier League next season* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes on May 13th, 2019 at 4:04 pm).

Brighton did also make a run to the FA Cup semi finals this season where they were edged out by Manchester City 1-0. Houghton’s last game in charge of the club was also against Manchester City on the weekend, suffering a 3-1 loss against the champions at the Amex.

There does seem to be a clear target who the Seagulls want as their net manager if the reports are true. It is Swansea boss Graham Potter, a man who has no Premier League experience, who is apparently catching the eye of the Seagulls. He was at 1/4 odds early on Monday* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes on May 13th, 2019 at 4:04 pm).

Brighton want to take the club in a different direction instead of just grinding, and Potter is seen as the man to add a bit more of a positive identity to the club. Behind Potter is Phil Neville who has appeared as the 5/1 second favourite, the former Manchester United man is currently the England Women’s boss and looking forward to the World Cup in the summer.

Frank Lampard has come in as short as 9/1 with some bookmakers* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes on May 13th, 2019 at 4:04 pm), with his Derby side having lost at home in the first leg of their Championship play-off semi-final against Leeds. Would he be tempted to a move up to the Premier League if he can’t get there with the Rams?

Crystal Palace v Bournemouth Prediction & Betting Tips, 12th May 2019

Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace v Bournemouth Premier League Preview, 12th May 3.00pm

Crystal Palace are on a nice bit of form at the moment with three victories in their last five games. All three of those wins were out on the road. It has been a disappointing season from them on home soil, so Bournemouth who are one point beneath them, in the table may fancy their chances of signing off for the season on a positive note. Read our Crystal Palace v Bournemouth betting tips for more.

Crystal Palace v Bournemouth Betting Odds*

Crystal Palace 17/20
Draw 3/1
Bournemouth 13/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on May 6th, 2019 at 9:40 p.m.)


Crystal Palace News and Form

The Eagles have put together some nice form at the end of the season. They are currently on a three-match undefeated streak of form, winning two of those. This season on home soil Palace have taken a W4 D5 L9 record and have won only one of their last six at Selhurst Park (D2 L3). The Eagles have managed only the 14 home goals this season at an average of 0.78 which is so strong as they have scored more than double that away from home. Palace have averaged just over a goal per game at Selhurst Park.

In total, they have banked a clean sheet in 39% of their home games too, with only 28% of games at Selhurst Park going over 2.5 goals. Palace have scored 64% of their home goals in the second period of games and have conceded 75% of home goals after the half time break as well. Palace have opened the scoring in just six of their home games this season. The Eagles have done well to lift themselves towards the middle of the table after some struggles this season. They start the weekend in twelfth place and could stay there or go one place either way. It’s not going to be a stressful afternoon for the Eagles on home soil.

Crystal Palace v Bournemouth Head to Head

Bournemouth earned a 2-1 home win over Palace in October
The head to head is even at one win each and three draws in the last five meetings
The Cherries have lost just one of their last nine against the Eagles
The last two meetings at Selhurst Park have been drawn

Bournemouth News and Form

The Cherries collected a 1-0 home win over Spurs last weekend, which was a great result for them. It took them until about the last minute to break Tottenham who were playing with nine men though. It has been a season riddled with inconsistencies by the Cherries who have posted a W5 D1 L12 record on their top-flight travels this season. Nine of their away defeats for the season have been against the current top nine interestingly enough. In total the Cherries have averaged 1.3 goals per away game this season in the EPL.

67% of Bournemouth’s away games have made it over 2.5 goals and part of the reason for that is they have been poor in defence. The Cherries have conceded at an average of 2.2 goals per road fixture. There has been a clean sheet in 22% of road games for them. Of the losses that they have taken on their travels this season, 11 of the 12 have been by at least a two-goal margin. The Cherries have also been losing at the half time break in 10 of their 18 road fixtures for the season. Bournemouth have opened the scoring in just four away games this season.

Crystal Palace v Bournemouth Tips & Odds

Over 2.5 goals at 8/13
Both teams to score at 8/13
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on May 6th, 2019 at 9:40 p.m.)

Who will win – Crystal Palace v Bournemouth Predictions

This is such a tough game to read because the two are probably going to be pretty evenly matched in this Selhurst Park clash. The one thing that does look certain is that it could be a high-scoring game so simply going over 2.5 goals looks like a decent place to start for betting on this game.

Arsenal

Burnley v Arsenal Premier League Preview, 12th May 3.00pm

Burnley have lost their last two league fixtures now and are winless in three. They start the weekend in 15th and will either finish there or one place, either way, depending on this result. Arsenal realistically blew their shot at the top four finish last weekend with a draw against Brighton. The Gunners have to win this and somehow overturn an eight-goal swing in the goal difference to Spurs. Read our Burnley v Arsenal betting tips for more.

Burnley v Arsenal Betting Odds*

Arsenal 11/10
Burnley 11/5
Draw 11/4
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on May 6th, 2019 at 9:40 p.m.)


Burnley News and Form

The Clarets have lost their last two league games, failing to get on the scoresheet in either of those. They have won just the seven games at Turf Moor this season (D2 L9), but five of those have been since December 30th. Burnley have posted a W1 L4 record at home against the top six teams this season, their lone success in that sequence coming against Spurs. Burnley have averaged 1.3 goals per home fixture but in each of their last five home Premier League games, they have scored exactly two goals. The Clarets were on a twelve match scoring streak at home before losing 1-0 to Man City in their last home fixture.

In their last five home games, Burnley are W2 L3 and the two successes in that sequence were 2-0 victories over Wolves and Cardiff. The Clarets have earned a clean sheet in 28% of home games this season and each of their last three have ended under 2.5 goals. Of the home defeats which have gone against them this season, six of the nine have been by at least a two-goal margin. Burnley have scored 61% of their home goals in the first period of games. Only the current bottom three plus Bournemouth have conceded more league goals this season in the top flight than Burnley have. The Clarets start the weekend in 15th place and will either finish there or one place either way.

Burnley v Arsenal Head to Head

Arsenal were 3-1 winners at home over Burnley in December
The Gunners are on a nine-match winning streak against the Clarets
Burnley have lost their last three home games 1-0 against Arsenal
Both teams have scored in three of the last eight meetings

Arsenal News and Form

Arsenal could only manage a home draw against Brighton last weekend. That was costly as it means that they are highly unlikely to finish in the top four. In order to that, they have to claim maximum points, hope that Spurs lose and overturn an 8-goal deficit in the process. The Gunners have really tanked in their form at the end of the season. They are W1 D1 L4 in their last six league games now. Most of their troubles have come away from home as well where they are on a three-match losing streak, scoring just the one goal in that sequence.

Arsenal had a big extra shift in midweek too, beating Valencia to reach the Europa League Final. So that is where their focus will be, win that and they will reach the Champions League. 72% of Arsenal’s away games this season in the EPL have gone over 2.5 goals and a 1-0 win at Watford in the middle of April has been their only clean sheet away from the Emirates all term. Both teams have scored in 78% of Arsenal’s away games. The Gunners have averaged 1.5 goals per game on the road, conceding at an average of 1.9 per game. Five of their six away wins have been by a one-goal margin.

Burnley v Arsenal Tips & Odds

Both teams to score at 8/15
Burnley – Draw Double Chance at 3/4
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on May 6th, 2019 at 9:40 p.m.)

Arsenal’s top four ambitions really or already done and dusted. It’s been such poor form from them lately that it’s easy and reasonable enough to see Burnley getting under their skin at Turf Moor. Burnley-draw double chance looks a good proposition.

Fulham have won three of their last four games including their last two fixtures at Craven Cottage. They get the chance to get one more on the board as they play host to Newcastle on the final weekend of the season. The Magpies nearly earned a point against Liverpool last weekend but still ended up losing. Regardless of what happens here, they have locked down a bottom half of the table finish.

Newcastle 31/20
Fulham 13/8

Fulham News and Form

The Cottagers suffered a 1-0 loss against Wolves last weekend, which snapped a good three-match winning streak that they had been on. The home form that the Cottagers have produced this season in the top flight is W6 D3 L9. They have the chance at making it three wins on the bounce though at Craven Cottage which they will achieve if they topple Newcastle. Their last two wins, successes against Everton and Cardiff both happened with a clean sheet. In total though they have only managed the three home clean sheets all season.

Fulham have conceded at an average of 1.8 goals per home game for the season. Of their six home success, three have been by a one-goal margin and the other three were by a two-goal margin. The Cottagers have not been involved in a league draw in any of their last eighteen played, and none in their last nine home games. Each of their last three games at Craven Cottage have ended up going under 2.5 goals. Fulham have the worst defensive record in this season top flight of all teams.

Fulham v Newcastle Head to Head

There was a 0-0 draw between them earlier this season
Fulham are W3 D1 in their last four against the Magpies
The Cottagers are on a six-match winning streak at home against Newcastle
Both teams have scored in one of the last six meetings

Newcastle News and Form

Newcastle almost earned a very good point at home against Liverpool last weekend, but they were denied late on in a 3-2 reverse against the Reds. That loss against the title contenders saw a three-match undefeated streak of form by Newcastle, snapped. Newcastle have not had a great time of things away from home in the top flight this season, winning just three games (W8 L7).

They have lost just one of their last four games on the road though in the top flight, which was against top six opposition in the form of Arsenal. Newcastle having tallied 14 away goals this season, an average of 0.8 per road fixture. They have opened the scoring in nine of their 18 away games this season.

Only 33% of Newcastle’s away games this season have gone over 2.5 goals. While they have been a low scoring side, their defence has actually done pretty well on their travels. Newcastle have conceded at an average of 1.3 goals per away game. Six of their seven away defeats this season happened against the current top six teams. So they have handled themselves well enough against anyone outside of the big six.

Each of the three wins that Newcastle have taken on the road have been by a one-goal margin only. Newcastle have scored 79% of their away goals in the first period of fixtures, while they have conceded 65% of their away goals after the halftime break. Only the current bottom four teams in the division have produced fewer league goals than what Newcastle have done this season.

Fulham v Newcastle Tips & Odds

Both teams to score at 4/7

It’s well worth a flutter on the home side coming up with victory in this one just because of what they have produced Craven Cottage recently. Newcastle are not going to be that interested after a huge effort against Liverpool last weekend. Back Fulham to win.

Leicester put in a great shift at Manchester City last Monday but were eventually toppled in a 1-0 defeat against the reigning champions. It is back to home soil for them this weekend where they will be looking to follow-up on a convincing victory over Arsenal in their last game at the King Power.

Leicester News and Form

The Foxes lost 1-0 against Manchester City last weekend which is only their second defeat in their last eight games. They gave a very good account of themselves against the Citizens as well. Leicester have won four of their last five games at the King Power Stadium (L1), including a big 3-0 success there over Arsenal in their last home fixture. The Foxes have scored at least two goals in four of their last five at home as well. Overall this season Leicester have taken a W8 D2 L8 record on home soil, scoring an average of 1.3 goals per game during that sequence. They have conceded at 1.1 goal per game on average.

Leicester have taken a clean sheet in 28% of home games and of their eight home victories, six of them have been by a margin of at least two goals. Leicester haven’t been involved in a home draw in twelve successive games now. The Foxes have conceded 60% of their home goals in the first half of games this season and just six-times have they actually opened the scoring in a fixture. Their form over the last eight rounds of matches has only been better by two teams, Liverpool and Manchester City. So that shows how well they have been going with their form. Leicester are W2 L3 at home against the other big six teams this season.

Chelsea News and Form

Chelsea had an extended shift on Thursday night as they won a penalty shoot out at home against Frankfurt to book a place in the Europa League final. Will pressure is off them for this final weekend of action because they have already booked a top-four finish. So the Blues have a least achieved the ball of reaching the Champions League next season. Chelsea have lost five of their last eight away games in the top flight (W2 D1) and in their last two road game, they managed to take a share of the spoils in a 1-1 draw at Manchester United.

Chelsea have won only one away game this season against teams who are currently in the top half of the table (D1 L6). The overall away record of Chelsea this season reads W9 D2 L7 and they have averaged 1.3 goals per away game. In total two-thirds of Chelsea’s away games in the EPL, this season have gone over 2.5 goals. The Blues have earned a clean sheet in 28% of away games this season, but they have failed to earn one in any of their last eight on the road. Of their seven away defeats this season six of them have been by a margin of at least two goals. Chelsea have opened the scoring in exactly half of their away fixtures.

Manchester United saw their chance at a top-four finish disappear last weekend in disappointing draw against Huddersfield. That’s one win in their last six league games now that they have produced. They get the chance to sign off on a positive note as they entertain Cardiff who suffered relegation last weekend. Read our Manchester United v Cardiff betting tips for more.

Manchester United News and Form

Manchester United’s season will end without a shot at a top-four finish. They have taken only the two points from their last four league games now in what has been a terribly poor finish. If they can overturn a one-point deficit to Arsenal (two points really considering they are far worse off in goal difference to the Gunners) then United could steal fifth. The home record of the Red Devils this season is 10 D6 L2 and really it is in their home games against the stronger sides where they have failed. They have gone D4 L2 in their home games against the other top seven sides, leaving all their wins coming against teams eighth or lower.

United have averaged 1.8 goals per home game, managing to take a clean sheet in just 11% of home fixtures. 72% of league games at Old Trafford have gone over 2.5 goals and of the ten home victories they have recorded, seven of them have been by a one-goal margin. The Red Devils have no clean sheet in their last ten league games, home and away, none in their last five at Old Trafford. Manchester United have been leading at half time in nine of their home games, which is good, but they have conceded 74% of their goals at Old Trafford in the second period of games.

Manchester United v Cardiff Head to Head

The Red Devils were 5-1 winners at Cardiff in December
United are undefeated in eight against the Bluebirds
Both teams have scored in one of the last six meetings
Cardiff have lost to nil on their last three visits to Old Trafford

Cardiff News and Form

The Bluebirds are on a three-match losing streak. They could not do enough to keep their survival hopes alive until the final weekend of the season. So they are heading down. Their away record for the season in the EPL reads W3 D2 L13 and in that campaign, they have managed just eleven away goals. That is an average of 0.6 per game. Less than half of their road games have made it over 2.5 goals. Each of Cardiff’s last five away games have actually ended under the goal line.

In total, the Bluebirds have taken a clean sheet in 22% of their away games this season in the top flight. Cardiff have lost four of their last five away games (W1) the one bright moment in that sequence coming against Brighton. Of their thirteen away defeats, eight of them have been by a one-goal margin only. Cardiff haven’t been involved in an away draw in any of their last nine on the road. They have been losing at the halftime break in exactly half of their road games for the term. Nine of the 11 goals which they have scored on their travels this season have come in the second half of games.

Manchester United v Cardiff Tips & Odds

Man Utd to win to nil at 5/4
Under 2.5 goals at 11/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on May 6th, 2019 at 9:40 p.m.)

Who will win – Manchester United v Cardiff Predictions

The Red Devils surely can’t miss the boat in this one. The wind will have been knocked out of the sails of Cardiff after last weekend’s loss and therefore this should produce the home win. The Manchester United to win to nil option looks a decent proposition.

Southampton v Huddersfield Prediction & Betting Tips, 12th May 2019

Southampton

Southampton v Huddersfield Premier League Preview, 12th May 3.00pm

The Saints have only taken two points from their last four games but nonetheless, have managed to maintain their Premier League status. So it’s a relaxed end to the season for them now. They may even get the chance to pick up a comfortable three points against bottom side Huddersfield to sign off with. Read our Southampton v Huddersfield betting tips for more.

Southampton 4/11
Draw 7/2
Huddersfield 8/1

Southampton News and Form

The Saints took a heavy hit against West Ham last weekend in a 3-0 loss. It doesn’t matter as Southampton are safe for the season. That is a four-match winless streak behind them though D2 L2 and so their intensity has dropped, which is understandable after staving off the threat of relegation. This season Southampton have taken just the five wins on home soil in a W5 D7 L6 record. They have scored an average of 1.44 goals per game at home this season. They have conceded above that though at 1.6 per game on average. In total 72% of league games this season at St Marys have gone over 2.5 goals.

The Saints have scored in each of their last 13 home games in the division, which is good return. They have actually scored at least two goals in all but one of their last five there. The Saints have not taken a clean sheet in any of their last four at home though, none in their last six home and away combined. Each of their last four at home have made it over 2.5 goals. Southampton have actually done pretty well in having scored the opening goal in 11 of their 18 home games. But of the sixteen times this season they have taken the lead at home, they have conceded an equaliser eleven times, so have struggled to defend their advantages.

Southampton v Huddersfield Head to Head

The Saints were 3-1 winners against the Terriers earlier this season
Southampton are unbeaten in four against Huddersfield (W2 D2)
The Terriers are winless in four at St Marys
Four of the last five meetings at St Marys have gone over 2.5 goals

Huddersfield News and Form

Can the Terriers rally themselves to a win on the final day of such a tough season? They surprised a lot of people last weekend as they played out a 1-1 draw at home against Manchester United. That was a great effort for them in front of their home crowd for the final time this season. Away from home, the Terriers have managed just one away win all season (D3 L14) and that came against Wolves. It has been a season where they have barely registered as a threat in front of goal, netting just 11 away goals at an average of 0.6 per game. In total, they have only managed a clean sheet in 11% of road fixtures.

Huddersfield are currently sat on a seven-match losing streak of league form in the top flight. It is a winless streak of twelve that they are currently on. Huddersfield have not banked themselves a clean sheet in any of their last seven-way games and in none of their last nine home and away combined. The Terriers have actually conceded at least two goals in each of their last four away games, and have not hit the back of the net in any of their last three road games. They are the lowest scorers in this season’s Premier League and they have the second worst defensive record as well. There is nothing at stake here, can they just enjoy themselves before this EPL adventure comes to a close?

Southampton v Huddersfield Tips & Odds

Under 2.5 goals at 6/5
Southampton to win to nil at 5/4

Who will win – Southampton v Huddersfield Predictions

The Saints look value to win this and it’s likely going to be a low scoring game. Huddersfield battled well for their point at home last weekend against Man Utd. It may be a different story for them out on the road. Home win.
