This weekend’s Premier League action kicks off with Chelsea vs Man United on Saturday and we’ve picked out some players we’ve projected to do well. 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 9.
West Ham vs Tottenham
Chelsea vs Man United: Chelsea to win 2-1 and Eden Hazard to score @ 7/1
Saturday afternoon football kick’s off with high-flyers Chelsea facing Manchester United at Stamford Bridge.
The Boys in Blue are expected to emerge as victors on home turf, by two goals to one, with odds at 7/1.
Leading the charge to make it onto the scoresheet is none other than Eden Hazard.
With six goals in his opening seven Premier League starts- a record best for the Belgian – backing Hazard to score is almost a certainty.
Yet, as well as being the highest scorer in the Premier League this season with seven goals, Chelsea’s Eden Hazard is the first player to record 10 goal involvements in the competition this season (7 goals, 3 assists).
His pace and skill on the counter could just be the key factor in breaking down the United defence this Saturday, and odds of 7/1 means that he makes our Premier League betting tips.
Marko Arnautovic to score first against Tottenham @ 11/2
William Hill’s forecasters have built another exciting bet for any punters this weekend surrounding West Ham’s forward Marko Arnautovic in this weekends clash against Tottenham.
With odds betting at 11/2, the projection of Arnautovic scoring against Spurs in our Premier League betting tips is a lively one based on the Austrian’s recent form.
Four goals in his opening seven starts make him West Ham’s joint-highest Premier League goalscorer at the London Stadium (8, level with Manuel Lanzini). The Austrian has scored in three of his last four games at the ground.
West Ham face tough opponents in Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham, boasting of a defensive lineup featuring veterans Toby Alderwiereld and Jan Vertonghen, both of whom will have a torrid time in containing Arnautovic.
Perhaps not of the same calibre as Sergio Aguero or Mohamed Salah, the 29-year-old has proved that he is capable of coming up with the goods in front of goal, which is why we’ve included him in our Premier League predictions this weekend.
Wolves vs Watford: Nuno Espirito Santos’s side to win 2-1 @ 15/2
The newly-promoted side have come leaps and bounds in their short second-spell in the Premier League, with their haul of 15 points in eight games breaking a new record.
This week they face a high-flying Watford side, but our betting tipsters have made them our pick to win by as part of this weekend’s Premier League betting tips.
Santos’s men face a potent attacking side, and leading the charge is the dynamic duo Troy Deeney and Roberto Pereyra.
Deeney was involved in both of Watford’s goals the last time they played a league game at Molineux, scoring and assisting in a 2-2 draw in March 2015, meanwhile, Pereyra has already bagged three goals this season.
But Wolves will be playing at the Molineux and are unbeaten in their last six Premier League games at home, which means they will be fierce hosts to combat the Hornet’s attack.
Our betting predictions of the Wanderers to continue their impressive home form is reflected in the 15/2 odds, with the away side in for a difficult ride.
