Premier League Weekend 34 Betting Preview
The Champions League continues to wow, but the focus shifts to the Premier League and Manchester City will be desperate to bounce back from their European disappointment at Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.
City, Premier League champions elect, are in the midst of a torrid run of form as defeat to Liverpool on Wednesday was their third on the spin ad sent them crashing out of the Champions League.
It gets no easier this weekend as they travel to Tottenham – which is one of seven games on Saturday – with two on Sunday and the action wrapping up with Stoke City’s trip to West Ham United on Monday.
With all the European drama that’s been taking place, Chelsea have been flying under the radar. The truth is, their plane has been spluttering and running on an engine short for most of the season and with six games remaining they are 10 points outside of the top four.
It’s not where they expect to be, especially after they were so dominant last term, but the table tells the story and all they can do is win their remaining games and hope the likes of Tottenham and Liverpool falter.
With that in mind, a trip to Southampton hands Antonio Conte’s side a decent shot at their first away win in the league since January 20th. It’s truly remarkable how poor the Blues have been, but it’s reflected in their price and at 1.87 188BET to beat a side in the drop zone, it looks too good to pass up.
West Ham gained a valuable four points with a win over Southampton and draw with Chelsea in their past two games, but they still do not look the safest conveyance. At home, the natives can get extremely restless if things don’t go as hoped and Stoke rate a decent shout to cause them problems on Monday.
The Potters are running out of time to extricate themselves from trouble, but after recent games against Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester City a trip to the Hammers places them in calmer waters. They are priced at 3.90 with 188BET to get the three points and Paul Lambert’s side look worth a small investment.
Tip to Note:
Sergio Aguero cut a frustrated figure on Tuesday night as Manchester City crashed out to Liverpool. He was not named in the starting XI and only summoned when the game was up following the Reds’ first goal.
The Argentina superstar will likely be handed a start against Tottenham on Sunday and will want to make a point. He has an excellent record against Spurs, with 10 goals from 12 games and he is priced at 2.10 by 188BET to enhance that impressive number.
