Good luck to everyone following!

EPL Match Day 26 Betting Tips

Watford vs Everton (Sunday 2am AEDT)

We kick off our Match Day 26 betting tips with a play on the Watford vs Everton fixture. The first league meeting between these teams this season ended in a 2-2 draw at Goodison Park.

Watford haven’t been in the greatest of form heading into this game, although four of their past five league fixtures have come away from home. They now get to return to Vicarage Road where they’ve mustered up a record of 6-2-5 this season, which is the seventh best home mark in the league.

Everton enter this fixture fresh off a mid-week 2-0 loss to defending champions Manchester City. They came into the match as heavy underdogs and that’s exactly how it looked for the full 90 minutes. As it stands, the Toffees are in ninth spot in the standings and are one point behind their opponents here.

Watford have both the advantage of fresh legs and home ground against Everton in this one. They face a Toffees outfit that has won only three games on the road this season and will struggle to get up from their mid-week clash. We see Watford as tremendous value at home.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Leicester City (Monday 12:30am AEDT)

Second up for our weekend tips features the Tottenham Hotspur vs Leicester City clash. The Spurs won the first meeting between these teams by a scoreline of two goals to nil on the road.

Tottenham have been able to keep pace with City and Liverpool at the top of the table despite a whole host of injury concerns. They’ve showcased their depth with three wins on the spin to keep their title hopes alive for the time being.

Meanwhile, Leicester have managed just one point from their past four fixtures and are coming off a tough 1-0 loss at home to Manchester United. This recent stretch has kissed their top six aspirations goodbye and leaves them amongst the big pack in the middle of the table.

The Spurs have been able to defy the odds and keep the win column ticking over despite their constant injury troubles. They’ve also won eight of their 12 home fixtures this season and haven’t had to travel from Wembley for quite some time. We expect them to get the job done again on Saturday night at decent odds.

Manchester City vs Chelsea (Monday 3am AEDT)

The final game we’ve taken a keen interest in is the blockbuster battle between Manchester City and Chelsea. Chelsea shocked the defending champions in their first meeting this season, defeating them 2-0 in an upset at Stamford bridge.

Manchester City have reclaimed their position at the top of the table (at least for the time being) thanks to their 2-0 win against Everton mid-week. That made it six wins from the last seven games for the champions, who are really starting to put the heat on Liverpool in the title race.

On the other hand, Chelsea are coming off a 5-0 victory over Huddersfield in their last outing, which was a terrific and necessary way of bouncing back from two really tough consecutive losses. The Blues are currently in fourth spot and two points ahead of their rivals in Manchester United.

We expect nothing other than another dominant home performance from Manchester City here. They’ve won 12 of a possible 13 games at the Etihad this season, scoring 43 goals in the process. We love them at a -1.5 handicap at home.
