After going a combined 9/12 (all $1.80+) on our EPL betting tips from Match Day 27-30, it was a bit of a disappointing weekend for us in Match Day 31 with just one of our three best bets getting up. Both the Hammers and Liverpool fell one goal short of getting up, but the play we did hit on was a decent price ($2.02). We now shift our focus to this weekend’s English Premier League action as we look to our profitable 2018-19 season thus far. Check out our best plays below and good luck to everyone following!
First up with our EPL tips this weekend we look at the fixture that sees Fulham host Manchester City at Craven Cottage. These teams met in September 2018, which was the first meeting in over four years. City won that game comfortably (3-0) in front of their home fans at the Etihad.
Unless something miraculous happens, Fulham will be heading back down to the Championship next season. They’ve had a nightmare return to the Premier league, notching maximum points from just four of 31 fixtures to date. The brunt of their problems has been on the defensive end, where they’ve conceded a league worst 70 goals.
Manchester City fell back to second in the standings when Liverpool secured maximum points in Match Day 31, although they still have a game in hand and can momentarily regain top spot with a win against Fulham. The Citizens are in scorching hot form at the moment, winning 10 of their last 11 league matches.
City are quite clearly the better team in this fixture, and we don’t see them being phased by being the visiting team. They’ve been banging in goals for fun of late and should have no trouble unlocking the worst defence in the league.
Second up on the weekend we’ve taken a keen interest in the Leicester City vs Bournemouth fixture. The Cherries won the earlier season meeting over the Foxes 4-2 at Vitality Stadium in what was a very entertaining duel.
Leicester City have turned their form around with a couple of much needed wins over the past month. After going through a stretch where they picked up just one point from six fixtures, the Foxes have won three of their past four and have solidified their spot in the mid table.
The Cherries are another mid table team that would be quietly satisfied with their season so far. They’re coming off a 2-2 draw at home to Newcastle but secured a handy 2-0 away win the week prior at Huddersfield. This recent run has helped them to 11thspot on the ladder and a healthy 10 points clear of the drop zone.
With Leicester returning to winning form, we see them as great value at home here. They’ve won three of their last four, including two in a row at home and will be full of confidence against a similar opposition. All things considered; we’re more than happy to play at anything close to $2 here.
Our third and final play from this weekend’s EPL action comes from the match of the round that sees Liverpool hosting Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield. The Reds were too good for the Spurs in their earlier meeting this season, defeating them 2-1 at Wembley.
Liverpool’s patch where they drew four of six games has put a big question mark on their ability to close out this season, which has become all too common for the Red’s faithful. However, they’ve managed to pull out consecutive wins leading up to the break and can continue to put pressure on Manchester City with a big win against Tottenham.
Tottenham’s title aspirations have been shut down over the past five weeks with probably the worst month of football they’ve played in three years. They’ve picked up just one points from their past four games, losing to poor teams in Southampton and Burnley during that stretch. They now have a serious battle on their hands to hold onto a top four spot with the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United, and Chelsea all breathing down their neck.
Considering everything at play here, we’re confident we’ve found a winning play in the ‘Race to 2 Goals’ market at BetEasy. Liverpool have scored the second most goals in the league this season with 70, while the Spurs have scored just three goals in their past four games. Further, Liverpool have conceded just nine goals in 15 home fixtures this season. Simply put, we see Liverpool scoring 2+ goals at home, while the Spurs will struggle to score at all.
