Premier League Week 27 Betting Preview
Games don’t get much bigger than a North London derby between Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal.
The Wembley Stadium clash gets the Premier League weekend underway and is one of six games taking place on Saturday, while there are three on Sunday and one huge match on Monday.
The Best Bet:
We’ll have to wait until the final game of the weekend for our best bet and it is one that comes with a health warning. Chelsea play host to West Bromwich Albion at Stamford Bridge and we will find out for certain whether Blues boss Antonio Conte has lost his players. We’re prepared to take a chance that he hasn’t, and that Chelsea will come out all guns blazing and reassert their push for a top-four place.
The Blues, after a run of one loss in 20 games in all competitions, have had a torrid couple of weeks – with a home defeat to Bournemouth followed by a 4-1 mauling at Watford.
After the defeat at Vicarage Road, there were widespread reports of dressing unrest and players unhappy with Conte’s hard-line regime.
The Italian, who has made no secret of his frustration with the club’s transfer policy, has handed his players a few days off to recharge the batteries.
Conte is not likely to last beyond the summer, he may not get to see out the season if results continue to slide, but we’re prepared to give the players the chance to prove they still have pride in their own games, if not the total backing of their manager. 188BET’s price of 1.36 tempts us in to go for a home three points.
A 4-1 scoreline may have flattered Watford a shade against Chelsea last week, but they were still value for the win and it snapped a winless run in the league dating back to Boxing Day.
It’s too early to say a corner has been turned, but the January signing of Gerard Deulofeu has added a touch of creativity and Abdoulaye Doucoure is a midfielder catching the eye.
The Hornets travel to West Ham United on Saturday and 188BET’s price of 3.10 is enough to lure us in.
Tips to Note:
Crystal Palace have been much improved under Roy Hodgson and have hauled themselves out of the drop zone. The manager deserves credit, but so does Wilfried Zaha.
The forward has turned in some stunning displays, but he’s facing a spell out with a knee injury and it’s interesting that the last time the Eagles won a game without Zaha in the team was in September 2016. It’s only an eight-game run, but it’s fairly damning and with that in mind Everton will fancy their chances of taking three points on Saturday – which is priced at 2.23.
It’s a battle of the strikers at Wembley, with Spurs’ Harry Kane up against Arsenal new boy Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. There’s likely to be plenty of attacking endeavour and Kane can be backed at 1.70 with 188BET to score at any time, while Aubameyang is 2.30 to achieve the same feat.
