Ace Football presents detailed betting tips on the upcoming Premier League games of the weekend.
As we eagerly wait for the Premier League to continue after the international break, our experts take a look at the bookmakers’ predictions for the upcoming matches.
Let’s check out three betting tips for Matchday 33 of the Premier League.
Back West Ham to beat Burnley in London
West Ham were lucky that they did not fall further behind in the top-four race last week. The Hammers suffered a surprising 2-0 defeat against Brentford, but both of their close opponents, Arsenal and Manchester United, also lost their games.
This weekend David Moyes’ men will face Burnley at the London Stadium. It’s another must-win game for the guests, who lost against Norwich City last week.
Burnley are pushing hard to catch Everton and escape the relegation zone. However, given West Ham’s stats against bottom-of-the-table sides, we expect them to come out of this battle victorious. The sudden dip in Hammers’ defensive form might provide chances for Burnley throughout the game, but the hosts’ superior firepower gives them enough edge to win the match.
Don’t expect goals when the Magpies host Leicester City
After three consecutive defeats, Newcastle bounced back by clinching an impressive win over Wolves last Friday. Eddi Howe’s side sit 15th in the Premier League, only three points behind 10th-placed Crystal Palace.
Continuing their bid for a top-half finish in the Premier League, Newcastle will face Leicester City on Sunday. The Foxes claimed a narrow win over Crystal Palace last week, clinching their second league victory in three games.
Newcastle will need to defend wisely to use their home advantage against Brendon Rodgers’ side. We expect the Magpies to take the similar approach that earned them a 1-0 win over Wolves on Friday.
Eddie Howe’s side will most likely look to hurt the guests on counter-attacks. However, Leicester’s recent form convinces us they won’t give out too many chances behind their backline.
Expect Arsenal to return to winning ways against the Saints
Arsenal have suffered back-to-back defeats against Crustal Palace and Brighton in their most recent games. The Gunners are now three points behind their arch-rivals Tottenham, who leapfrogged them from the fourth spot on the table.
Mikel Arteta’s side must win their match against Southampton as they also feel pressure from West Ham and United, who sit three points below them.
Their opponents, Southampton, have spent a few nightmarish weeks lately. The Saints have failed to win a league game since February 25, with a crushing 6-0 defeat against Chelsea being their latest setback.
We expect Arsenal to beat Southampton using their still in-form attacking line. The Gunners have conceded many unnecessary goals recently, but we don’t believe Southampton could create enough goalscoring chances against Arteta’s men.
