Premier League Betting Tips Super Sunday
The Boxing Day fixtures are now over and they were extremely entertaining with goals in every match. However we now turn our attention to Sunday as there are nine Premier League matches taking place with three of those being televised on Sky and BT Sport. The early fixture takes place at White Hart Lane where Tottenham face the inform Manchester United in what should be a cracker. There is also a match taking place on Monday night and that’s between the out of form Liverpool and Garry Monk’s Swansea side. Once again we are in for some exciting football over the weekend which should prove to be excellent entertainment for us football fans.
Southampton v Chelsea
Two of the better teams in the Premier League meet up on Sunday as Southampton host top of the table Chelsea at St Mary’s Stadium. As I’ve mentioned Chelsea are top of the table and are three points ahead of Manchester City who have a relatively easy home fixture against Burnley therefore Chelsea need a result if they are to remain at the top of the pile. Southampton aren’t having a bad season themselves, they’re fourth in the table after consecutive wins against Everton and Crystal Palace. Ronald Koeman was appointed as the new Saints manager in the summer after Mauricio Pochettino left for Tottenham and Koeman lost several key players during the transfer window and he has done an excellent job replacing them.
So how will this match pan out? I’m expecting a close encounter however I do think we’ll see goals at St Mary’s and both teams to score can be backed at odds of 2.1 which is a very generous price in my opinion. When you think of Chelsea you think strong defensively however this hasn’t been the case away from home this campaign. In their nine away matches Chelsea have conceded a goal in seven of those and both teams to score would have been settled as a winner 7/9 times when Chelsea have played away from Stamford Bridge in the League this season. Admittedly Southampton have been strong defensively however they have struggled against the better sides in the league and Chelsea certainly fit into that category.
West Ham v Arsenal
Fifth plays sixth in the Premier League on Sunday as West Ham United face Arsenal at Upton Park on at 3pm and its Sam Allardyce’s side that are fifth in the table, who’d have predicted that at the start of the season. West Ham did lose their most recent match however they were facing Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and Chelsea don’t tend to drop points at home. On the other hand Arsenal beat QPR at the Emirates however it was a close match which saw Olivier Giroud sent off in the second half for a head-butt on Nedum Onuoha, thus meaning he starts his three match suspension against West Ham. With the Frenchman suspended this gives us a good betting opportunity as Danny Welbeck will start as the lone striker and this will inevitably lead to more goal scoring opportunities therefore I’m more than happy to back Danny Welbeck to score anytime at 2/1 with BetVictor.
