Welcome to our EPL expert tips and Premier League predictions for Matchweek 5. We base our weekly EPL tips on many factors, but the main element is our tipster’s expert knowledge of the game and his intuition. After correctly predicting the winner of last year’s EPL champions and winning over 70% of our weekly EPL tips and predictions, we hope to have the same success this year.
EPL Tips for Matchweek 5
Game: Liverpool vs Newcastle
EPL Tip 1: Over 2.5 match goals
Reason: Liverpool’s record at home speaks for itself. The Reds are simply sensational when they play at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp’s team has scored 13 goals already this season and we’re not expecting them to slow down against Newcastle. The Magpies will have their backs against the wall for 90 minutes. You have to fear the worst for them.
Game: Manchester United vs Leicester
EPL Tip 2: Both teams to score
Reason: Both sides are working their way through the gears and trying to find their rhythm. We think this will be an end-to-end game with plenty of attacking play. Both teams like to press the ball which leaves plenty of space in behind. We think there will be plenty of goals at Old Trafford. For that reason, we’re backing both teams to score.
Game: Wolves vs Chelsea
EPL Tip 3: Wolves Win
Reason: It’s been an indifferent start to the season for Frank Lampard. He picked up his first win as Chelsea boss two weeks ago against Norwich, but threw away a two goal lead against newcomes Sheffield United the following week. We’re expecting Wolves to get the better of Chelsea on this occasion. It should be an entertaining game, that’s for sure.
EPL Expert Predictions – The Different Bet Types You Can Make
There are lots of different bet types you can make once you’ve read our EPL expert tips above. Here are a few of the major ones you should become familiar with. Please note that we don’t provide EPL fantasy tips – these are for real money bets such as those listed below.
One of the most popular bets you’ll come across is the accumulator, more commonly referred to as an ACCA.
An ACCA is betting on a collection or accumulation of different results. This term is normally used when betting on three or more teams.
E.G – I’m including Watford, Tottenham, Liverpool and Man City in my ACCA this weekend. I’m using the championship predictions listed above to make my picks.
Handicap bets are an extremely common way of making footy bets.
Don’t be alarmed, at first, it can seem quite confusing. However, it’s actually very simple and can really benefit you. When it comes to making money on EPL expert tips, the handicap bet is a favourite of smart punters.
E.G – Tottenham to win (-1) handicap is one of our football expert tips this weekend. It simply means that Tottenham will win by one or more clear goals. A (-2) handicap would mean they’d need to win by two or more clear goals for our bet to win.
This is perhaps the most popular type of bet and one you can really take advantage of if you don’t fancy placing a pre-match bet.
You can keep an eye on how the game is unfolding then place your bet accordingly. The great news is that most bookies offer in-play markets for all EPL fixtures.
An example of a popular in-play bet is the outcome of a penalty kick awarded within a game. You bet there and then, and the bet is settled on the spot.
EPL Betting Tips
In this section, we’re going to discuss what we consider before making our EPL expert predictions. We take all of these into consideration when forming out football betting tips for the week. Every tip is considered carefully before we publish.
Form – Always check the teams’ previous results before placing a bet. Usually, you can use the last five to build a picture of how things might go. The last thing you want to do is back a team which has lost 5 of their last 5 games. We consider the current form before giving our weekly EPL tips.
Injuries & Suspensions – This applies to all teams throughout the English Premier League. If you asked us to back Liverpool every week I’d usually say yes. However, if you ask us to back Liverpool with several star players out with an injury, my answer might be different. Bookies will often change the odds depending on who is playing and who isn’t so make sure you do your research before placing a bet. We never change our EPL tips once we put them out, but we do consider injuries before we give them.
Intuition – There’s no replacing the decades of football knowledge our tipster has stored away in his subconscious. His gut feeling is worth its weight in gold, as anyone who followed our EPL soccer tips last year knows. If you had followed us last year, you’d certainly be in profit.
Inspiring Football Bets
Over the years, we’ve seen some crazy bets win and huge payouts lavished upon lucky punters. No doubt, some of these bets will have been down to EPL expert tips and Premier League table predictions but occasionally, some just have fate written all over them. If you had picked any of these, it would have beaten even our top bet predictions, because we didn’t see them coming!
Leicester City’s Miracle – It seems only right, to begin with, the most inspiring football bet of the decade. One lucky punter backed his beloved Leicester City to win the Premier League title at a whopping 2000/1. Sure enough Kante, Vardy, Mahrez and co-won the title with a few games remaining and this punter seen his £100 bet turn into £200,000. Unfortunately, we didn’t include a Leicester win in our EPL expert predictions last year!
Six Team Championship Acca – Even more recently a punter saw their six-team championship ACCA stroll home at 7087/1. They had a £10 stake on Chelsea, Newcastle, Sheffield Utd, Portsmouth, Hibs, and Livingston all to win their respective leagues. This bet won and returned more than £71,000.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What if a game is abandoned? Will I get my bet back?
Bookmakers will normally void your bet in these circumstances meaning they will either return your full stake or your bet will go ahead without the affected match included. Check each bookmakers Ts&C’s as they may vary. We can’t account for this in our England Premier League predictions and take no responsibility if it occurs.
Q. Will free bets be included in my returns?
No, any bets placed using a free bet will be returned without the inclusion of the stake. For example, if you use a £5 free bet to back one of our EPL tips with a 7/1 shot only £35 will be returned as opposed to the £40 which would have been returned if you used cash.
Q. Can I cash out my bet if some selections are winning?
Yes. Most bookmakers in 2018 offer you a cash-out option. This means if you place an eight-team ACCA and five of them are winning and three games haven’t kicked off yet you can cash out for a profit.
Q. How do I know I can trust your Epl tips?
Follow us for a few weeks by bookmarking this page and visiting every week. There’s no such thing as a perfect EPL predictor, but our in-house tipster gets the vast majority of his picks correct. We don’t make crazy predictions but prefer to grind out slow profits week by week. That’s why we have such a high success rate. You can check out our track record in the table above. If you think we’re falsifying it, keep tabs on us for a few weeks and you’ll see we don’t lie. When we get it wrong, we admit it.
Q. Is there a way to get every bet right every time?
We’ve seen all sorts of products being marketed such as a ‘championship predictor which never fails’. It’s all BS! Nobody has a crystal ball and no tipster gets it right every time. All we can use is our expert knowledge of football to make reasonable predictions. We get it right most of the time, but not every time.
