Swansea v Liverpool Prediction & Betting Tips, 22nd January 2018

Swansea

Swansea v Liverpool Premier League Preview, 22nd January 8.00pm

The Swans won’t be looking forward to this match. They are in desperate need of points and taking on a confident Liverpool side who just took a win over Manchester City, is probably the last kind of thing that they need at the moment. It is desperate times for the Swans and if ever they needed an unexpected three points, it’s here. Swansea though are 17/2 underdogs at bet365 for the victory with the draw at 17/4 and Liverpool at 3/10* (Betting Odds taken on January 16th, 2018 at 8:49 p.m.)

Swansea News and Form

The Swans head into the weekend four points adrift of safety and by the time that they play on Monday night that gap could well be bigger. So there is immense pressure on them at the moment and they need to drive their way to something in this one. They have been a little bit more competitive under new boss Carlos Carvalhal and saw off Wolves in an FA Cup replay in midweek. They collected a point last time out in the Premier League as well, playing out a 1-1 draw at Newcastle. It leaves them W1 D2 L2 in their last five league games. Overall at home this season the Swans are just W2 D2 L7 for the season and they suffered a 2-0 home loss against Spurs last time out at home. Their output in front of goal so far this season has been pretty dire, with just six goals at home all season in their eleven played and that will likely just throw fire on Liverpool to win to nil wager at bet365. The Swans have failed to score in over half of their home games so there is a trend running there for sure. Just 27% of their home games have made it over the 2.5 goal line. So this may not be a high scoring game, even though Liverpool are involved.

Liverpool News and Form

The Reds are now on a four-match winning streak in the Premier League and they are now unbeaten since a 4-1 reverse at Tottenham back on October 22nd. So it’s been fine form from them and they have scored at least two goals in each of their last six games played. They were the first side to beat Manchester City this season in the top flight as they held out for a 4-3 victory at Anfield last weekend. Their rate of scoring has been strong away from Anfield with the Reds averaging 2.6 goals per game on the road. Their defence hasn’t been good on the road though with an average of just under two goals per game conceded. So they are prone to lapses at the back, but they will fancy their chances of a clean sheet here. They are unbeaten in six away games now and they have scored in each of their last nine away from Anfield. In the bet365 correct score market a Liverpool 2-0 option is at 11/2* (Betting Odds taken on January 18th, 2018 at 9:14 p.m.). Liverpool have opened the scoring in 8 of their 11 Premier League away games this season and a Liverpool/Liverpool half time/full time bet looks a decent proposition for the fixture.

Swansea v Liverpool Head to Head

Liverpool were comfortable 5-0 winners over Swansea earlier in the season but the two of them have traded wins over the last four meetings so things are even at two wins each. At the Liberty Stadium, Liverpool have lost just one of their last five Premier League visits with a W2 D2 L1 record there in that sequence. Each of the last four league meetings have made it over the 2.5 goal line.

Who will win – Swansea v Liverpool Predictions

Liverpool are just rampant in front of goal and they have been in great scoring form on the road. They should collect the three points in this one but even though they are prone to letting the odd goal slip here and there, it is worth having a poke on Liverpool to win to nil for the Liberty Stadium clash.

Southampton v Tottenham Prediction & Betting Tips, 21st January 2018

Southampton

Southampton v Tottenham Premier League Preview, 21st January 4.00pm

The Saints are still just above the drop zone but it has been a while since they tasted what a winning feeling feels like. They blew a two-goal lead to end up drawing with Watford last weekend and it’s pretty frustrating for them. Spurs have ramped up their form again and destroyed Everton last weekend. Tottenham are 4/6 at William Hill to take the away win, with the draw at 14/5 and Southampton at 4/1* (Betting Odds taken on January 16th, 2018 at 7:30 p.m.)

Southampton News and Form

The Saints are now winless in their last ten fixtures in the top flight and have won just one of their last fourteen. It is has been a miserable run of form from them and even after playing themselves into a great position last weekend, going 2-0 up at Watford they could only manage a draw at the end of the day. They are not a high scoring side and there have been some really poor defensive performances from them recently as well as they have conceded nine goals in their last four games played. Five of those were in their heavy Boxing Day defeat out at Spurs. Southampton are just W3 D4 L5 on the road this season and they have gone just D2 L2 in their last four there, scoring just the four goals as well. They have scored just the fourteen goals in their twelve home games while they have conceded at a rate of 1.4 per home game. Charlie Austin is their top scorer at home this season with five of his six league goals this term coming at St Mary’s. Both teams to score in this one with William Hill is at 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds taken on January 17th, 2018 at 10:08 p.m.) given what happened between them recently.

Tottenham News and Form

Spurs are ticking over in great form again now with thirteen points picked up from their last five league games. They have scored at least two goals in six of their last eight league outings and they have won their last two away games, both to nil as well in victories over Burnley and Swansea. Overall this season Spurs have posted a W6 D1 L4 record on their top-flight travels but they have only collected the two wins in their last seven road fixtures. But their recent upswing suggests that they are fully back in business. Harry Kane has eight league goals in his last five appearances and he naturally is the William Hill First Goalscorer favourite for the match. Tottenham have averaged 1.8 goals per game on their travels this season while they have collected a clean sheet in 45% of their away games. 55% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals so that’s probably a decent option to look at for this one. Of the six away wins they have recorded this season only one of them have been by a one-goal margin.

Southampton v Tottenham Head to Head

Spurs romped to a 5-2 win over Southampton back on Boxing Day and that was their third Premier League win in a row over the Saints. Both teams have actually scored in each of the last four meetings so there is a decent trend running there. Southampton have won just one of their last eleven Premier League fixtures against Tottenham. The Saints have lost their last two at home against the Lilywhites are winless in their last five there against Tottenham.

Who will win – Southampton v Tottenham Predictions

Tottenham should be fairly comfortable in this one. They are back in form again while Southampton just cannot get anything going and after their recent heavy defeat against the Lilywhites, you would expect more of the same in this one. Spurs to win by a two-goal margin looks value.

Leicester v Watford Prediction & Betting Tips, 20th January 2018

Leicester

Leicester v Watford Premier League Preview, 20th January 3.00pm

Wins have been hard to come by recently for Leicester in the Premier League but if they continue to play the way they did last weekend in a 0-0 draw at Chelsea, those wins will come. The Foxes get a shot at home on the weekend against a Watford side who are still struggling to pull things together defensively. Leicester are 5/6 at Paddy Power for all three points with the draw at 13/5 and Watford at 7/2* (Betting Odds taken on January 15th, 2018 at 9:16 p.m.)

Leicester News and Form

The Foxes have won only one of their last six league games but they played so well at Chelsea last weekend that they will have plenty of backers here. Plus they did win their last league outing at the King Power, beating Huddersfield 3-0. Leicester haven’t done badly at home recently with a W3 D1 L1 record on home soil in their last five league games there and they have scored pretty well at home. They average almost 1.5 goals per home game and they have scored at least two goals in their last two home games. This does have the look of being a high scoring game and over 2.5 goals at Paddy Power looks a decent proposition. In the correct score market a Leicester 3-1 victory may well have some good appeal out a price of 14/1* (Betting Odds taken on January 16th, 2018 at 1:14 a.m.). The Foxes have Riyad Mahrez playing really well at the moment and with Jamie Vardy fit again, they will pose a threat here. They created so many chances against Chelsea in their 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge last weekend it was ridiculous how they didn’t actually manage to score. Overall Leicester are W5 D2 L4 at home this season in the top flight and can make a good run at three points here. They have scored at least two goals in six of their eleven home games this term.

Watford News and Form

The Hornets continue to be at sixes and sevens. They had to fight back from a 2-0 deficit at half time at home against the low-scoring Southampton last weekend, and they just about pulled it back to a draw in the last minute of the game. But again their defence was exposed and that is a really poor W1 D1 L6 record they have produced now this season in their last eight games played. It’s not been good enough and their away form is of concern because they are on a four-match losing streak away from Vicarage Road and they are W1 L6 in their last seven on the road. It is their defence which is badly letting them down as they have now extended their run without a clean sheet to ten league games. Both teams to score at Paddy Power at least is going to be a pretty solid option for the game. 64% of Watford’s away games this season have gone over 2.5 goals so this should be a pretty lively game and they have conceded at least two goals in each of their last three games. Watford have scored in 82% of their road games this season. This could be a rollercoaster of a match. Abdoulaye Doucoure got his seventh goal of the season last weekend.

Leicester v Watford Head to Head

The Hornets took a 2-1 home win over Leicester back on Boxing Day, however, Leicester have won their two previous Premier League home games against Watford. The Foxes are unbeaten in their last ten home games against the Hornets in all competitions. Seven of the last eight contests between the two sides have gone above the 2.5 goal line, so this could be another entertaining clash between them.

Who will win – Leicester v Watford Predictions

Leicester can get themselves a good three home points in this one. They played really well last weekend and just couldn’t get the ball in the back of the net. They should be up for this one and get plenty of chances against a Watford back line that can’t defend.

Everton v West Brom Prediction & Betting Tips, 20th January 2018

Everton

Everton v West Brom Premier League Preview, 20th January 3.00pm

The wheels have really come off Everton’s revival as they have put together a three-match losing streak in the top flight now and have gone winless in their last five. There has been little offensive threat from them during that sequence and with West Brom finally snapping their long winless streak last weekend, the Toffees could have another scrap on their hands. Everton are 5/4 at Betfair for the victory at Goodison Park with the draw at 21/10 and West Brom at 14/5* (Betting Odds taken on January 15th, 2018 at 9:16 p.m.)

Everton News and Form

It is not going right for Everton at the moment them with a five-match winless streak of form behind them and they have lost their last three league  outings. They have only managed the one goal in their last five league games so they are just not there at the moment at all. They have failed to score in their last two home games, a 0-0 draw against Chelsea and then a 2-0 home loss against Manchester United and immediately off the bat there may be an appeal in this game going under 1.5 goals at Betfair. Everton are W6 D1 L4 at home this season in the top flight and their loss against the Red Devils there on New Year’s Day snapped a positive five-match unbeaten streak that they were on there. The Toffees have averaged just over 1.5 goals per game at home this season while having conceded an average of just under 1.4 goals per game. The half time draw is well worth a look in this one as they have been level at the break in seven of their eleven home games so far this season. In the correct score market, an Everton 1-0 is the shortest-priced option to call on and right at the moment they are crying out for someone to take the reins up front for them.

West Brom News and Form

The long wait is over for West Brom. They took a win at home against Brighton last weekend to end their long and exhausting winless streak so that will have given them some renewed belief of better things to come for them. The Baggies still need to turn around their poor away form though as they have gone W1 L3 in their last four on the road and overall they are W1 D3 L7 on their travels. Another indicator that this is going to be a low scoring game is the fact that they have scored just the six goals on their travels this season and only 27% of their games away from the Hawthorns this season have made it over the 2.5 goal line. Two-thirds of the away goals that they have managed to put on the board this season have been in the second half of games and both teams not to score at Betfair is probably the way to play it safe in this one. Only Salomon Rondon and Jay Rodriguez have managed to make it three goals for the league this season for West Brom and like Everton the year in desperate need of a bit more quality up top. They will probably turn up and compete with the belief that a point is fully viable. Whether they can end their winless streak away is a different matter altogether.

Everton v West Brom Head to Head

There was something of a predictable 0-0 draw between the two of them back in December at the Hawthorns. Everton are undefeated in their last three now then against the Baggies in the top flight, winning two of those. The Toffees though have only managed one win in their last four home games against the Baggies with a W1 D2 L1 record against them. Both teams have scored in just one of the last four classes.

Who will win – Everton v West Brom Predictions

The draw has to have the most appeal in this one because West Brom are surely good enough at the back to go and defend their goal against an Everton attack which looks pretty limp and lifeless at the moment. A share of the spoils is probably the sensible option to consider for this fixture which is likely to ease under 2.5 goals.

Burnley v Manchester United Prediction & Betting Tips, 20th January 2018

Manchester United

Burnley v Manchester United Premier League Preview, 20th January 3.00pm

The Clarets are running through a difficult patch of form at the moment as the wins have totally dried up for them. The Clarets are winless in six now and their home form has taken a turn for the worse with back to back losses there. Manchester United have been solid enough to suggest that they can go and chase down three points in this one despite being given a real scare by Burnley at Old Trafford recently. Man Utd are 8/13 at William Hill to get the win, with the draw at 13/5 and Burnley are at 5/1* (Betting Odds taken on January 15th, 2018 at 9:03 p.m.)

Burnley News and Form

The Clarets have posted a W5 D2 L4 record on home soil this season and they have lost their last two at home, having gone down against Spurs and Liverpool. They are just having a tough time of things at the moment with a six-match winless streak of form that they are on right now, having lost their last two, both one-goal margin defeats. They need some improved fortunes at the moment and this is probably going to be a game which goes under 2.5 goals. Burnley have scored eight and conceded eight goals at home so far this season and just 36% of their games at Turf Moor this season have gone over 1.5 goals. 75% of the goals that they have conceded this season at home have been in the second half of matches, so there may be a bit of value in a half-time draw at William Hill. They are going to have dig deep now to turn this form around, but they may take some heart from their 2-2 draw at Old Trafford recently, but they couldn’t hold on to a strong 2-0 lead that they had played their way into.

Manchester United News and Form

Manchester United eased their way to a 3-0 victory over Stoke on Monday night and that took their unbeaten streak of form out to seven matches in the top flight now (W4 D3) and they go into this one with back to back wins under their belt having scored five unanswered goals across wins over Everton and Stroke. The Red Devils have gone W4 D1 in their last five away games now and they have scored at least two goals in each of those games as well, so in the William Hill correct score market a Manchester United 2-0 option may have decent enough appeal. The Red Devils have not conceded in any of their last three league outings now and away from Old Trafford, they have averaged 1.9 goals per game going forward. They have taken a clean sheet in 36% of their away fixtures this season while they have scored in 82% of their road games. Their away form is there at the moment to suggest that they can get something out of this trip to Burnley and they now have the joint-best defence in the Premier League at the moment alongside Chelsea and only Man City have earned more away points than Manchester United have done in the top flight this season. Anthony Martial has scored in United’s last two games and is worth a look in the anytime goalscorer market.

Burnley v Manchester United Head to Head

That thrilling 2-2 draw between these two at Old Trafford recently leaves Manchester United unbeaten in their last six Premier League games against the Clarets, winning three of those. They took a 2-0 win in last season’s corresponding fixture and the Red Devils have taken a clean sheet in four of their last six league outings against the Clarets. Each of the last four games between them at Turf Moor have seen less than three goals.

Who will win – Burnley v Manchester United Predictions

Manchester United are the value option to go out and win this Turf Moor clash with a clean sheet in tow as well. They have not had any problems in picking up points on the road recently and even though they aren’t playing particularly well, they can pick off a Burnley side which has just lost its way. United to win to nil.

Arsenal v Crystal Palace Prediction & Betting Tips, 20th January 2018

Arsenal

Arsenal v Crystal Palace Premier League Preview, 20th January 3.00pm

The Gunners were dealt another away blow last weekend as they slumped to a defeat against Bournemouth. That loss leaves them really struggling to make a run at a top-four finish this season and pressure is back on Arsene Wenger. Crystal palace improved further with a victory over Burnley last weekend and have their sights on the top half of the table. Arsenal are 1/2 at Ladbrokes to win, with the draw at 10/3 and Crystal Palace at 24/5* (Betting Odds taken on January 15th, 2018 at 8:54 p.m.)

Arsenal News and Form

The Gunners are on the slide with just two wins in their last nine Premier League games. You don’t expect to be saying that about them. They have won just one of their last five played and there were alarm bells ringing loudly last weekend as they lost at Bournemouth after having taken the lead early in the second half. Arsenal now go into the weekend eight points away from the top four and have a vastly inferior goal difference to the five sides above them as well. Their home form reads W8 D2 L1 this season but hey have drawn their last two there against Liverpool and Chelsea, while winning just one of their last four on whom soil, a 1-0 victory over Newcastle in mid-December. The amount of goals that they have been conceding is alarming with no clean sheets in five and having conceded ten goals in that sequence. It could lead to a bit of value in both teams to score at Ladbrokes at least. Arsenal have conceded twelve goals at home this season and five of those have been in their last two. They have earned clean sheets in 55% of their home fixtures, but one doesn’t look too likely at the moment. The Gunners have scored in all of their home games so far this season and 63% of their home goals this term have come in the second half of matches.

Crystal Palace News and Form

Palace could end up in the top half of the table after the weekend, that is the turnaround that they have produced. They have lost just one of their last twelve league games now, but the one loss in that sequence was at home against Arsenal on December 28th. But the Eagles made the Gunners sweat in the game. The Eagles go into the game with back to back league wins under their belt having claimed one-goal margin victories over Southampton and Burnley. That leaves them with a good W4 D2 L1 record in their last seven played. Away from home, they are unbeaten in five now (W2 D3) and so are holding their own without question. Because their recent form has improved so much you have to take their six goals only scored this season on their travels all in context as they have all come in their last three road games. Palace have won two of their last three road games, taking down Leicester and Southampton. They are playing with a confidence that Arsenal can only dream of at the moment. This would be a huge victory for them if they could get it. Over 2.5 goals at Ladbrokes has to be worth a look in this one, as it could once again be an entertaining London derby clash.

Arsenal v Crystal Palace Head to Head

Arsenal had to really work hard to get their 3-2 win over Palace back at the end of December. Things have been pretty even between the two of them recently with Arsenal W2 D1 L1 in their last four league outings against the Eagles. The Gunners have gone unbeaten in their last six on home soil in the Premier League against the Eagles, so they do have the positive going for them. The Gunners have netted at least two goals in four of their last five home games against the Eagles in all competitions.

Who will win – Arsenal v Crystal Palace Predictions

The draw may have some appeal here as things aren’t going Arsenal’s way at the moment and the overall performance levels just haven’t even there. Palace are confident enough to go and battle their way to what would be a good point for them.

Stoke v Huddersfield Prediction & Betting Tips, 20th January 2018

Stoke

Stoke v Huddersfield Premier League Preview, 20th January 3.00pm

The Potters have a new boss in Paul Lambert but that hasn’t stopped punters still backing them to go down. After a limp 3-0 at Manchester United on Monday, the Potters find themselves stuck in the relegation zone. This is a big game for them though against a Huddersfield side who are going into this with back to back defeats behind them. Stoke are even money at Betfair to take the win, with the draw at 23/10 and Huddersfield at 3/1* (Betting Odds taken on January 16th, 2018 at 7:00 p.m.)

Stoke News and Form

Stoke have to lift themselves away from danger after having lost their last three league games. They have actually lost six of their last eight league matches now (W1 D1) so it has been rough for them. Their defence has been a shocking mess all season and they have shipped nine unanswered goals in their last three games alone. But with them having failed to score in five of their last seven top-flight games there are problems up front. Lambert is known for his pragmatic style and will start to shore up the defence first and foremost, but it is hard to see where they are going to improve their attack. The Potters are W4 D2 L5 at home this season in the top flight and they have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last ten home fixtures. They have scored thirteen goals in their eleven home games which isn’t great, especially when 82% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals. So it doesn’t say much about their defence and both teams to score at Betfair may well offer some decent value. Things aren’t likely to change overnight for them.

Huddersfield News and Form

The Terriers are without a win in their last five games played in the top flight now and have lost their last two, going down heavily against both Leicester and West Ham. That’s seven goals they shipped in those two defeats. They are not in form away from home either with a W2 D2 L7 record on their travels this season and they haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last eight road fixtures. So they are really having to dig at the moment and they have netted just the eight away goals this season away from the John Smith’s while they have conceded at a rate of over two goals per game. So that’s a big discrepancy which is working against them and they have netted just one goal in their last three played home and away. They have also scored in just two of their last ten away games. They have battling qualities in them but the quality to pull out wins in crucial situations like this may not be there. So a point out of this wouldn’t be a bad result for them. It would at least keep the Potters off their backs and keep a little cushion between themselves and the relegation zone.

Stoke v Huddersfield Head to Head

There was a 1-1 draw between the two sides earlier in the season and that is the straight draws these two have played out. Before that meeting back on Boxing Day, their most recent games were in the 2001 Division 2. So there’s not really much recent form to look at between them.

Who will win – Stoke v Huddersfield Predictions

Stoke should be able to make the most of the new-manager situation in this home game. The Terriers have been torn apart at the back in their last two games and the Potters look the good option to collect all three points in this one and drag Huddersfield down further into the survival scrap.

Manchester City v Newcastle Prediction & Betting Tips, 20th January 2018

Manchester City

Manchester City v Newcastle Premier League Preview, 20th January 5.30pm

How will the Citizens respond to having lost their first league game of the season? The Citizens were stopped in a 4-3 defeat at Anfield against Liverpool last Sunday. That won’t likely affect the destination of this season’s Premier League title. City gets back to home soil where they face a Newcastle side who may well feel the wrath of Pep Guardiola’s men. Manchester City are 1/12 at bet365 for the win, with the draw at 10/1 and Newcastle at 20/1* (Betting Odds taken on January 15th, 2018 at 3:30 a.m.)

Manchester City News and Form

So Manchester City’s unbeaten form has ended in the Premier League this season but there is a decent chance that they will bounce back immediately to winning ways. After their 4-3 loss at Liverpool in one of the games of the season, City return home where they have posted a W10 D1 record for the season, winning their last ten there. The Citizens have scored at least two goals in each of their ten home wins this season and in total, they have netted 39 goals in their 11 home games. So they alone can take this game over 2.5 goals. At the back, they have conceded just the eight goals this season at the Etihad in the top flight which is excellent from them. The Citizens have been winning at half time in eight of their home games this season so a Man City/Man City half-time/ full-time wager at Bet365 will have some immediate appeal and you would imagine that they will want to come out strongly and shake off that loss against Liverpool. Sergio Aguero is the bet365 first goalscorer favourite at 2/1* (Betting Odds took on January 15th, 2018 at 8:08 p.m.). The shortest-priced option in the correct score market is a Manchester City 2-0.

Newcastle News and Form

The Magpies have been scraping together points recently with a W2 D2 L1 record in their last five league games. They have been much-needed points too to keep their heads above the relegation zone. They are still struggling badly for offensive power and they have returned just the two goals in their last four league games in total. But as a positive, they have also conceded just the two goals in that sequence as well. How will they approach this game because they tried to defend their way to a point at home against City just after Christmas and this is going to be an infinitely more difficult task on the road for them? Away from St James’ Park, this season in the Premier League Newcastle have gone W3 D2 L6 but they have won their last two on the road, beating West Ham and Stoke back to back by one goal margins. Before that, they had collected just one point in five road games. Newcastle have scored an average of exactly one goal per game on their top-flight travels this term and of the goals, they have scored away from home, 64% of them have been in the second half of matches. Their most frequent away scoreline this season have been 1-0 losses which has happened four times. Eight Of the twelve top-flight defeats they have suffered this season have been by a one-goal margin only.

Manchester City v Newcastle Head to Head

Newcastle tried to shut up shop at home against Man City recently and were eventually undone. Man City are unbeaten in their last four games against the Magpies now and have lost just one of their last twenty-two fixtures against them in all competitions now. The Citizens have won their last eight Premier League home games against Newcastle, scoring at least three goals in each of the last five against them on home soil.

Who will win – Manchester City v Newcastle Predictions

The Citizens are likely going to want to prove their defeat was just the most minor of blips and they can collect a victory in this one and there is more than a reasonable chance that it will be to nil. Newcastle doesn’t carry too much of an offensive threat and will probably get picked off.

West Ham v Bournemouth Prediction & Betting Tips, 20th January 2018

West Ham

West Ham v Bournemouth Premier League Preview, 20th January 3.00pm

The Hammers have given themselves renewed hope of staying up with a four-match unbeaten streak of form going in the Premier League. That has seen them sail up towards the middle of the table. They will be taking on a Bournemouth side though who have also offered up some much better resilience recently with a four-match unbeaten streak of their own going. West Ham are even money for the win at Paddy Power with the draw at 5/2 and Bournemouth at 11/2* (Betting Odds taken on January 16th, 2018 at 7:00 p.m.)

West Ham News and Form

The Hammers are now unbeaten in their last four league games (W2 D2) and they have lost just one of their last eight in the top flight. Their defence has taken a bit of beating though and David Moyes will be wondering just what is going on. They are without a clean sheet now in five and they have shipped nine goals in that sequence. But after a bit of a dry spell, they are scoring well with them having netted at least two goals in five of their last six league games and hammered Huddersfield 4-1 last weekend. They have decent options now in the Paddy Power anytime goalscorer market in Marko Arnautovic and Andy Carroll, as well as Chicharito and they, are looking more of an attacking threat at least. Still, both teams to score at Paddy Power looks a pretty solid option for the game at 3/4 odds* (Betting Odds taken on January 16th, 2018 at 9:09 p.m.). The Hammers have only managed the four wins this season on home soil but they have lost just one of their last five there so it suggests that they are going to be strong enough to hold their own and avoid defeat at the very least.

Bournemouth News and Form

The Cherries are unbeaten in four like West Ham so are likely to put up a fight. There is a lot of similarities between these two at the moment because the Cherries can’t buy a clean sheet at the moment and their scoring output has been improving all the time. They have scored at least two goals in each of their last four games played and landed a big three points in toppling Arsenal last weekend. It has been a while since they landed an away win though as they have failed to win any of their last five away from the Vitality Stadium. So that counts against them a bit and overall their away form reads just W2 D3 L6 for the season on their travels. They have conceded at least two goals in three of their last four road games. Callum Wilson’s recent return to scoring form has been a huge boost for them and he is a 15/8 anytime goalscorer option at Paddy Power* (Betting Odds taken on January 16th, 2018 at 9:09 p.m.). While the Cherries have improved their scoring recently, they have totalled just the eight goals away from home this season, failing to score in 55% of their road fixtures.

West Ham v Bournemouth Head to Head

There was a thrilling 3-3 draw between the two of them at the Vitality Stadium earlier in the season. Four of the last five between them have seen at least four goals in the game. Things are evenly set between two of them with two wins each and a draw in their five previous Premier League meetings. Bournemouth have scored at least three goals in three of their last five against the Irons.

Who will win – West Ham v Bournemouth Predictions

Neither defence has been very good recently so there should be goals in this one. However, it is hard to pick a winner out of the two and therefore the draw should have appeal in the match outright. Neither would be unhappy with a share of the spoils in this one as it keeps them both ticking over well. The 1-1 draw in the correct score market looks about right.

Brighton v Chelsea Prediction & Betting Tips, 20th January 2018

Chelsea

Brighton v Chelsea Premier League Preview, 20th January 12.30pm

Chelsea’s busy schedule looks to have really been catching up with them lately. They have played out back to back draws in the top flight going into this one and they have looked a tired side in recent cup exploits. They make a trip to the south coast on Saturday lunchtime as they face up to a Brighton side who have slipped dangerously close to the drop zone. Chelsea are 4/9 at BetVictor to get the win, with the draw at 17/5 and Brighton at 8/1* (Betting Odds taken on January 15th, 2018 at 3:21 a.m.)

Brighton News and Form

The Seagulls have collected only one victory in their last twelve Premier League fixtures and that lone win in that sequence happened at home against Watford just before Christmas. While they haven’t been winning, they have remained pretty solid on home soil with a three-match unbeaten sequence of form going at the Amex. Overall the Seagulls are just W3 D6 L2 for the season at home, which isn’t bad with only Liverpool and Manchester City having won there. But an overall lack of goals is hindering the progress of turning draws into wins. The Seagulls have netted twelve goals in eleven home games this season and only 36% of their home fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals so this has every chance of being a low scoring game and under 2.5 goals at BetVictor looks good value at 8/11 odds* (Betting Odds taken on January 15th, 2018 at 7:59 p.m.). The Seagulls have failed to score in three of their home games this season. They have slipped down to just three points above the drop zone following a loss out at West Brom last weekend so there is pressure on them to deliver.

Chelsea News and Form

Chelsea are starting to look as if they need a break, but they had to endure an FA Cup replay in midweek against Norwich which they didn’t want. The Blues are now carrying back to back league draws into this fixture and have gone W2 D3 in their last five. They have been struggling a bit for finishing power recently in competitions lately and that is probably because of tiredness. They are in good league form with a seven-match unbeaten streak of form going, but away from Stamford Bridge, they have gone just W1 D3 L1 in their last five. So there could be a struggle for them in breaking down the Seagulls in this one. The Blues are W6 D3 L2 overall on their travels in the top flight this season and they have averaged 1.8 goals per game. They have shipped just the nine away goals so Chelsea to win to nil at BetVictor may have appeal for some punters. Chelsea have the joint-best defence alongside Manchester United this season heading into the weekend. This may well be a grind for them though with nothing working for them much up front. Chelsea have taken five clean sheets in their last six league outings.

Brighton v Chelsea Head to Head

Chelsea took a 2-0 home win over the Seagulls just back on Boxing Day and that was their seventh straight win over them in all competitions. Overall Chelsea are W7 D1 L1 from nine previous games against Brighton. They have conceded just one goal in their last seven against them.

Who will win – Brighton v Chelsea Predictions

There is a temptation to look at the draw because Chelsea had that extra game in midweek and looked tired before it. Either way, the game should go under 2.5 goals at the Amex and another frustrating 0-0 draw for Chelsea may appeal because the Seagulls are pretty strong on home soil.
