EPL Matchday 13 Betting Tips
Wolverhampton vs Chelsea
Wednesday, 5am (AEDT)
The Blues are coming off a disappointing loss to Everton which saw them drop out of the top four on the EPL table. They currently sit just one point behind Southampton in fourth place, but are more importantly just three points behind Tottenham at the top of the table in one of the closest Premier League seasons in recent history. The Blues are 6-4-2 on the season and their goal tally of 25 is second only to Liverpool. They have a+13 goal difference, which is behind only Tottenham and their road record, which is where they will be on Wednesday morning, is 3-2-1.
The Wolves are in 13th place on the EPL table and have lost their last two games on the spin. They were favoured against Aston Villa on Saturday night but went down 1-0 after a 94th minute goal from Villa substitute Anwar El Ghazi. After a strong year last season which saw them finish 7th on the table, it looks as though the Wolves have taken a bit of a downward turn this year, and could be fighting to stay in the Premier League later in the season.
The Blues start as heavy favourites on the road here, but we are staying away from the result in this one and opting for a high scoring game instead. The last six matchups between these two sides have produced an average of 3.66 goals per game, including a 5-2 shootout in favour of Chelsea when the two sides met in September of last year. Back this one to be another high scorer.
Leicester City vs Everton
Thursday 5am (AEDT)
A really interesting clash here between two of the top sides in the competition. The Foxes have won their last two games on the trot and sit in third place on the EPL table, just 1 point behind the table leaders Tottenham. The two wins were a great bounce back after losing back to back games to Fulham and Liverpool a few weeks ago, and a win against AEK Athens on Friday also saw them qualify for the knockout stage in the Europa League atop their group.
Everton started the season in hot form, winning their first four games. However, since then, they have a 2-2-4 record and have slipped to 7th on the EPL table. Fortunately, they still sit just five points behind Tottenham due to the closeness of this season. They are coming off a great win at home against Chelsea on the weekend, where Icelandic midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson scored his first goal of the Premier League season.
Really tough game to call here between two top sides. The Foxes come into the game with better form but we actually like the look of Everton on paper a touch more. Either way, we think this one has the makings of a lower scoring game as both sides are pretty evenly matched and the last three Everton games have all resulted in two goals or less.
Liverpool vs Tottenham
Thursday 7am (AEDT)
The game of the week sees the two top sides in the competition doing battle from 7am on Thursday morning. Both sides sit locked at the top of the table with 25 points, Tottenham holding the slight advantage on goal difference giving them the top spot. The Spurs have plundered 24 goals this season and allowed just 10, which is the fewest in the league. They have a near clean bill of health, with Argentinian Erik Lamela the only confirmed out for Thursday morning’s clash.
The same definitely cannot be said for Liverpool. They have been fighting a long list of injuries all season and they will once again be without a bunch of key players this week. Alcantara, Gomez, Jota, Milner, Shaquiri, Tsimikas and van Dijk will all miss this game, while Keita and Matip are both listed as questionable. The Reds can’t seem to break the 1-1 deadlock of late, with three of their last five Premier League games ending in that score.
Like they do with most clubs at the moment, Liverpool has a dominant record over the Spurs in recent history. They have won their last five games in a row against Tottenham, including the famous 2-0 win in the Champions League final in 2019. Tottenham are a different beast this time around though, and their fitness combined with Liverpool’s injury woes makes me really fancy the value of the Spurs on the road, especially with the double chance.
