This weekend’s Premier League action kicks off with Manchester City vs Everton as the Saturday lunchtime kick-off, so we’ve picked out some bets we’ve projected to come through. There are several players we think you should be considering punting on, as well as big game forecasts, so without further ado, here are our Premier League betting tips & predictions for Game Week 17.
Man City vs Everton | Both Teams to Score, No Draw betting @ 23/20
The first of our Premier League betting tips forecasts a win a Both Teams to Score and No Draw bet when Everton visit Manchester City on Saturday afternoon.
Pep Guardiola’s sky blues had indeed had the best the defensive record in the division just a few weeks ago but a series of poorly conceded goals means Man City have failed to keep a clean sheet in their past five games in all competitions.
The last time they kept a team out was when they defeated West Ham 4-0 on 24 November. The 14 games prior to that victory, City accumulated an incredible ten clean sheets.
Everton themselves boast a fantastic record in front of goal, having been consistently prolific in goal. In 18 games in all competitions, Marco Silva’s men have only failed to score in three games this season. That’s why we’re projecting both teams to score on Saturday afternoon at odds of 23/20.
Fulham vs West Ham | Hammers to win by 2 or more goals at enhanced odds of 4/1
The second instalment of our Premier League betting tips wagers that West Ham’s onion-bag locator skills will be top notch against Claudio Ranieri’s Fulham side this Saturday.
Betting at enhanced odds of 4/1, we reckon a punt on West Ham to win by two or more goals should be well worth your consideration this weekend.
The Hammers finally look a competent side under Manuel Pellegrini and are currently on a three game winning streak in the Premier League.
Having won by two or more goals in three of their last six matches – as well as coming up against the worst defensive side in the division – we believe there could be real value in this enhanced odds bet.
Liverpool vs Manchester United | Draw and Under 2.5 goals @ 9/2
The final of our Premier League betting tips features the big Sunday clash between Manchester United and Liverpool and our betting projection is a draw with under 2.5 goals.
Liverpool may stand xx points above Manchester United but it is the Reds who failed to record a win in the Premier League in this fixture for four seasons.
The Red Devils’ last defeat to the Liverpudlians came when David Moyes was still in charge, back in March 2014. That said, United were miserable midweek against Valencia and Liverpool have never looked this good in recent memory.
Mourinho will be gunning for a dour result and that’s why we’re backing a draw with under 2.5 goals at odds of 9/2. That’s a bet that would’ve paid out in in three of the last four Premier League meeting between these sides.
