Let’s get started with our English Premier League predictions for Saturday. Here are five we strongly believe have a great chance of winning.
Note: At this stage, our overall England Premier League prediction for this season is aligned with the bookies – Man City will take it home to the Etihad Stadium. City look unstoppable at this point and have the clearest path to victory.
Expert EPL Predictions for Saturday – Match Week 31
It’s slim pickings this weekend in the Premier League. The FA Cup quarter-finals mean there’s only 5 games in total. However, as always, we’ll be providing EPL betting tips for all of them.
If you’ve been following our tips over the last few weeks you’ll be quids in. We’ve landed 4/5 for 3 weeks running and we’ve come agonisingly close to a clean sweep each time.
Without further ado, let’s get a move on and find out what’s in store this weekend.
Bournemouth vs Newcastle (3 PM KO, Saturday)
The first of our EPL betting tips comes from the Vitality Stadium where Eddie Howe takes on Rafa Benitez. Both teams sit side by side in the Premier League table with Bournemouth in 12th on 37 points and Newcastle in 13th with 34 points.
The Magpies will fancy their chances going into this game. They’ve picked up 10 points (W3 D1 L1) from their last five games. This is a testament to just how well Benitez is doing with such a thin squad. On the other hand, the Cherries have collected just 4 points (W1 D1 L3) from their last five and will be desperate for a win.
As far as stats go Callum Wilson has been Bournemouth’s star man this season scoring 11 goals. Salamon Rondon has been the brightest spark in Newcastle’s team bagging 8 goals.
EPL Prediction 1: Neither team is out of the woods yet in terms of the relegation battle. We think they’ll both be desperate to pick up points here. Therefore, our prediction is over 1.5 match goals.
Burnley vs Leicester (3 PM KO, Saturday)
The Premier League season is coming to a close which means all 20 teams are fighting tooth and nail for every point available. However, Burnley undoubtedly need those points more than others.
The Clarets have lost three games on the bounce and find themselves hovering just 2 points above the relegation zone. The Foxes, on the other hand, have been in better form since Brendan Rodgers took charge last month and have won two of their last three games. However, they’ll still need to collect a few more wins to guarantee their survival.
In terms of injuries and suspensions, both teams have nothing fresh to worry about. The stage is fully set for what should be a decent encounter.
EPL Prediction 2: Both Burnley and Leicester have failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last five games. All the stats indicate that we’ll so goals here. Our second EPL betting tip is both teams to score.
West Ham vs Huddersfield (3 PM KO, Saturday)
The Terriers travel to the Olympic Stadium with nothing to lose. They’re rock bottom of the Premier League and have only managed to secure a miserly 14 points from 30 games. Although it’s not yet mathematically confirmed, we can all safely assume Huddersfield will be one of the three teams relegated this season.
West Ham, on the other hand, will be hoping to cement their spot in the top half of the table. Manuel Pellegrini’s team have racked up 39 points already and will fancy their chances of picking up another win here.
To add insult to injury, Huddersfield have failed to score an away goal since they played Man Utd at Old Trafford on Boxing Day. Hopefully, they can at least pick up a few more points before the end of the season for the sake of their wonderful fans.
EPL Prediction 3: West Ham have been in decent form lately and have been scoring a reasonable amount of goals. For that reason, we can’t see anything other than a West Ham win.
Fulham vs Liverpool (2:15 PM KO, Sunday)
Jurgen Klopp’s men have an opportunity to retake the lead at the top of the table. Man City are in FA cup action which means the Reds can take a 2 point lead until after the international break.
It’s already been a phenomenal week for Liverpool. They put in a dominant display against German champions Bayern Munich to seal their spot in the last eight of the Champions League.
Fulham will have their work cut out if they want to get anything from this match. The Cottagers have lost six Premier League games in a row. More worryingly, they’ve conceded 15 goals in the process.
EPL Prediction 4: This is one of the worst defences in the league going up against one of the best attacks. We think that Liverpool will win convincingly here. Our fourth betting tip is a Liverpool (-1) handicap.
Everton vs Chelsea (4:30 PM KO, Sunday)
It’s the battle of the Blues on Sunday as Chelsea travel to Merseyside to take on Everton. Both teams will be hoping to collect the spoils for two completely different reasons.
The Toffees have yet to confirm their Premier League status for next season and only sit 9 points clear of the relegation zone. A few bad results could easily see them get dragged into a battle for survival.
Chelsea, on the other hand, need to win if they want to continue their quest for Champions League football next season. Man Utd and Arsenal are piling the pressure on so it’ll be interesting to see how Sarri’s men respond.
EPL Prediction 5: This game could go either way. Both teams have been inconsistent for the entire season and we’re not quite sure who’ll come out on top. Therefore, we’re playing it safe and calling over 1.5 match goals.
EPL Betting – The Different Bet Types
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:
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.
Injuries & Suspensions – This applies to all teams throughout the English Premier League. If you asked me to back Liverpool every week I’d usually say yes. However, if you ask me 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.
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 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.
