It was a fairly disappointing Match Day 34 for us with just one of our three bets getting over the line. Burnley saluted against Cardiff City at decent odds, but Everton and Manchester United both fell short of their respective spreads. We now shift our focus to this weekend’s action, which is Match Day 35 of the 2018-19 EPL season. Check out our best bets from the value games below and good luck to everyone following!
First up for Match Day 35 we take a look at the fixture that sees the Wolves host Brighton at the Molineux Stadium. The earlier fixture between these teams this season finished in favour of Brighton by one goal to nil at Amex Stadium.
The Wolves come into this off a disappointing 3-1 away loss to Southampton last time out. They entered as favourite after a few dominant performances in the weeks prior, but we unable to find their best against a rampant Saints outfit. That loss keeps the Wolves even with Leicester for seventh spot on the table, although they do have a game in hand.
Meanwhile, Brighton are going through an absolute horror time at the moment, which is exactly what they don’t need with things really heating up in the relegation battle. They’ve now lost four on the spin, conceding 11 games and scoring none during that stretch. As it stands, Brighton are just two points clear of the drop zone with only a handful of games remaining.
The Wolves come into this as pretty heavy favourites and rightly so. The Seagulls can’t buy a goal at the moment and will find it really tough against a Wolves side that has four wins and one draw from their past five home games. We’re more than happy to back in the Wolves at anything into $1.60 here.
Second up on Saturday night/Sunday morning we’re keen to make a play on the fixture between Newcastle United and Southampton at St. James’ Park. The reverse fixture at St. Mary’s this season finished as a nil all draw.
Newcastle will be looking to be keep the good results coming after their crucial 1-0 away win at Leicester last time out. It was a much-needed win for the Magpies after consecutive losses to both the Gunners and Eagles in their two games prior. Newcastle now find themselves seven points clear of the drop-zone which is just about enough to see them live to fight another day (year) in England’s top flight.
Similar to their opponents here, Southampton claimed another three crucial points in their bid to stay in the Premier League in their last time out. They got the better of the Wolves at home in Match Day 34, defeating them 3-1 at home in what was their third win in four games. The Saints now see themselves five points clear of the drop with a handful of games remaining.
Both teams are coming off crucial wins last time out in their attempt to stay in the EPL. We do believe both will be in the top flight come next season, but it will be the Magpies who will sleep well after this fixture. At great odds we have Newcastle winning at home in this fixture.
The third and final fixture we’ve found some value in is Everton vs Manchester United at Goodison Park. The Toffees will be looking to get revenge from earlier in the season when the Red Devils beat them 2-1 at Old Trafford.
The Toffees were disappointing to say the least in their most recent fixture away to the Cottages. They came in as favourite but eventually lost 3-1 in what was a lacklustre performance. Prior to that they had three consecutive wins which were all impressive in their own right. As it stands, Everton battling out for a Europa League qualification spot with the likes of the Wolves and Leicester.
Manchester United were able to bounce back from a poor loss away to the Wolves to defeat the Hammers 2-1 at home in their most recent fixture. It wasn’t exactly a convincing performance, but it was a win nonetheless. That now makes it three wins from United’s last five in their bid to finish top four in the Premier League.
Despite Everton’s recent away loss to Fulham, we have them as a great chance to take care of United at home here. Everton have won against Arsenal and Chelsea, while drawing with Liverpool in their last three home fixtures, which is phenomenal form. We’ll take them with the Draw No Bet market for insurance.
