Premiership: Odds, Predictions, Tips
Like turkeys, Premier League managers get the chop before Christmas. This means three new managers sitting in Premier League dug-outs this weekend: Steven Gerrard at Aston Villa, Dean Smith at Norwich (having been sacked at Villa a week before!) and Eddie Howe, who after a long break from the game is under pressure job of stop billionaire Newcastle being relegated.
Weekend’s top match? Liverpool v Arsenal, who after a dreadful start have won their last four. Being professionals we have to predict a Liverpool win but have had a very small bet on Arsenal draw no bet at crazily generous odds of 5.3. Arteta, believe it or not, now has a higher win percentage at this stage of his managerial reign at Arsenal than the great Arsene Wenger.
We also can’t wait for Wolves v West Ham, two form teams with West Ham looking for a 5th straight win following their great win over Liverpool. They have 15 points from 18. But don’t underestimate Wolves who have 13 points from 18. Both teams to score is probably the bet here at Premier League odds of 1.8.
Leicester v Chelsea
Lukaku is back from injury and he should fire Chelsea to victory. Over 1.5 goals at 1.33 is a solid Premiership bet given these two have 43 goals between them. We are predicting a Chelsea win but if you want to play it safe you can get Chelsea draw no bet also at Premier League odds of 1.33. It would be a mega shock if Chelsea lost.
Premier League prediction: away
BetGold Premier League tip: Leicester draw quite a lot and are decent so Chelsea draw no bet would be clever
Aston Villa v Brighton
Along with Beckham and Lampard, Gerrard was the finest England midfielder of his generation. But it is the absence of a modern midfielder – Jack Grealish, sold by Villa to Man City – that makes this such a challenge for the new manager. Villa have lost their last five.
Brighton have drawn four of their last five and the draw is attractively priced. Given how solid Brighton have been we can’t see Villa winning, but we do think Gerrard will get a response from Villa’s players. Draw no bet Brighton tempts at Premiership odds of 2.1.
BetGold Premier League prediction: draw or away
BetGold Premier League tip: draw no bet Brighton
Burnley v Crystal Palace
Never underestimate Burnley maanger Sean Dyche and his survival instinct. Just when you thought Burnley might finally face the relegation trap door, they sparked into life and even drew at Chelsea last time. Patrick Viera is doing a great job at Palace, as seen by that extraordinary win at Manchester City. As well as being good going forward they have improved defensively, too.
BetGold Premier League prediction: draw of away
BetGold Premier League tip: Palace +1 handicap at Premier League odds of 1.45. Benteke was one of those strikers who couldn’t hit a barn door with a banjo and his recent scoring record doesn’t reflect how close he is to scoring a lot of goals now. He is 8/1 first goalscorer but back him each way/ anytime goalscorer at lower odds but increases your chances.
Newcastle v Brentford
Howe did a brilliant job at Bournemouth and is a sensible choice rather than the silly, “statement” appointment we feared. Brentford have lost four in five, including to Norwich. Have they been found out or have they just been a bit unlucky? Newcastle are the only Premiership cub without a win but they have managed five draws.
BetGold Premier League prediction: draw
BetGold Premier League tip: The draw odds are flirting wildly with our bank card. Newcastle draw no bet at Premiership odds of 1.91 might be the other bet given the home crowd, new manager and Brentford’s recent dip.
Norwich v Southampton
Smith has lost a struggling side and inherited what is probably a doomed one. The Canaries have scored five times and conceded 26. It is really hard to see what he has to work on here, except a promotion campaign next season. The Saints, meanwhile, are hugely improved with a mean defence.
Home win: 3.7
BetGold Premier League prediction: draw or away
BetGold Premier League tip: Under 1.5 Norwich goals – Norwich average less than 0.5 goals a game score and Southampton’s defence is shut tighter than a Scotsman’s wallet, so bet this at Premiership odds of 1.4. Also Southampton draw no bet 1.53
h3>Tottenham v Leeds
Spurs galacticos suddenly look decent again under Conte and while Leeds have improved a bit they are still a poor, injury-ravaged team who opposition teams have worked out how to play.
BetGold Premier League prediction: Home
BetGold Premier League tip: Home win is nicely priced. Harry Kane is back in the goals so bet him for anytime goalscorer
