The lunchtime football kicks off at 12:30pm with Wolves vs Leicester City, 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 23.
Bournemouth vs West Ham | West Ham to win @ 2/1
The first of our Premier League betting tips wagers in the favour of the Hammers, given Bournemouth’s woeful form of late.
Indeed, the Cherries have picked up seven points from their last 36 available in the Premier League, and with such a feeble defensive setup, could have some serious damage done to them by a Marko Arnautovic-led West Ham attack.
While there might be a lot of speculation surrounding the Austrian striker and his desire to leave the club for greener pastures, he has been involved in 26 goals this season for his team, with 18 goals and eight assists to his name.
Such a record suggests that Eddie Howe’s defenders will have to graft hard if they are to prevent another home defeat from playing out.
Man United vs Brighton | Paul Pogba to score first @ 4/1
The Frenchman has come leaps and bounds under interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and recent performances prove that betting on him to score first against the Seagulls could be a valuable pick to punt on.
Pogba has scored twice in his last two Premier League games at Old Trafford and could join Cristiano Ronaldo in the record books as the only other player to bag a brace in three consecutive home games for the club.
Given Brighton’s leaky defence, if he’s given the appropriate time and space, our Premier League betting tips predict that there is a strong chance of him – at the very least – making it onto the score sheet first.
Newcastle vs Cardiff City | Under 2.5 goals scored @ 8/15
Next we turn our attention to Rafa Benitez’s Newcastle who host Cardiff City at St James Park this weekend.
Considering the damning stats, a low goalscoring affair could be exactly the kind of turnout delivered by both sides.
While their opponents lead the record of the side with the least amount of goals scored in the most amount of games, the home side don’t exactly boast a stellar attacking unit.
Indeed, Newcastle haven’t scored more than once in any of their last nine Premier League games, netting just five in total to suggest that the second instalment of our Premier League betting tips might just hold some precedent.
Southampton vs Everton | Ademola Lookman to assist @ 4/1
The 21-year-old has been directly involved in seven goals in his last six starts for Everton, which is why we’re projecting him to assist a goal for one of his teammates in this weekend’s proceedings against Southampton.
What’s more, four of the six involvements have been assists, where Lookman has come up with the goods for the likes of Theo Walcott, Cenk Tosun and Andre Gomes.
All the evidence points to another assist for the young English international this weekend and that’s exactly what our Premier League betting tips are forecasting.
