Week 23 Premier League Betting Preview
It feels like an age since we last had any Premier League action, what with the FA Cup and EFL Cup commanding the headlines, but it’s been a mere eight days since our last visit to English football’s top table.
The action is spread out over three days, with seven games taking place on Saturday and one on Monday, while the weekend highlight is undoubtedly the clash between Liverpool and Manchester City on Sunday.
The Best Bet:
The relegation situation is starting to take shape and there are three of the proverbial relegation six pointers on offer. One of those takes place at St James’ Park where Newcastle United take on Swansea City.
The Swans are propping up the table and in dire need of an uptick in form, while Newcastle are looking anxiously over their shoulders at the relegation places.
It’s likely to be tense stuff on Tyneside and while both sides are hardly packed full of superstars, Rafa Benitez’s Newcastle look to have a little bit more quality in the locker. That combined with the fact they are at home make the Magpies the bet to get the three points, which can be backed at 1.92 with 188BET.
The Premier League title is heading to Manchester City, there’s no point attempting to dress it up any other way. It’s a case of what other silverware Pep Guardiola will be able to add to the Eastlands trophy cabinet to go alongside the league title.
They’ve proved a class above everyone else and we’ve not opposed them this season, but now is the time to stick the head above the parapet and make the claim that City could taste defeat in the league for the first time this term.
City are well capable of making a mockery of such predictions, they have after all won 20 of their 22 games in the league this season – drawing the other two – and thrashed Liverpool 5-0 earlier in the campaign.
There are grounds for thinking Liverpool could pull off what no other side has been able to do so far this season. The Reds are unbeaten at home, have exceptional attacking threats and will be keen to prove there is life after Philippe Coutinho. At 3.05 with 188BET, they are worth the investment.
Tip to Note:
Glenn Murray will go down in history as the man to be awarded the first goal in English football after VAR intervention. His goal for Brighton and Hove Albion that helped the Seagulls beat Crystal Palace in the FA Cup was his second in succession, after going 10 games without finding the target. He’s priced at 3.60 with 188BET to net for the third game in a row when Brighton travel to West Brom.
