EPL Expert Predictions for Saturday – Match Week 23
Another week of EPL betting tips is upon us. We’re moving onto round 23 of and we’re scratching our heads wondering where the time is going. Seems like the season was just starting a few weeks ago, doesn’t it?
Anyway, the fact of the matter is we’re halfway through January and the league table is shaping up nicely. The title race is in full flow and the dogfight at the bottom is getting more and more intense. Let’s have a look ahead at this weekend’s action.
Liverpool vs Crystal Palace (3 PM KO, Saturday)
Ex Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson takes his struggling Crystal Palace side to Anfield to face the league leaders in what promises to be a decent game.
The Reds have been in incredible form so far which means this will be an extremely difficult tie for Palace. However, they can take some comfort in the fact that Liverpool are having somewhat of a defensive crisis. With just two first-team defenders available, the title challengers will need to be at their best to get the job done.
The Eagles are just 4 points above the relegation zone so they’d at the very least like to secure a point here. However, we have a feeling that will be easier said than done.
Prediction: If Liverpool can successfully navigate their way through this game they’ll pile all of the pressure back onto Man City and Spurs. We’re backing them to do exactly that. Our tip is a Liverpool (-1) handicap.
Manchester Utd vs Brighton (3 PM KO, Saturday)
Since Ole Gunnar took over at Old Trafford, the Red Devil’s fortunes have changed dramatically. They’ve won five games on the bounce and their most recent win came in an impressive victory against Tottenham last weekend.
However, they’ll need another special performance to turn over Brighton here. The Seasiders put in an impressive performance against Liverpool last weekend despite losing 1-0. Chris Houghton’s men have continued to prove that they’re a proper Premier League side.
Prediction: As we witnessed last weekend, Brighton are defensively well organised. Utd will need to be patient when trying to break them down. If they go out all guns blazing they could be hit on the counter-attack. Our EPL betting tip for this game is over 1.5 match goals.
Watford vs Burnley (3 PM KO, Saturday)
The visitors have been resurgent recently after an abysmal start to the season. Surprisingly enough, Burnley have managed to collect 9 points from their last three games.
On the other hand, Watford have only lost one of their last five games. Both teams are showing plenty of promise which hopefully means we’ll get a cracking fixture here.
Prediction: Despite being in great form, we think that Burley will struggle here. They haven’t been great on the road so far and that’s why we’re backing a Watford win.
Arsenal vs Chelsea (5:30 PM, KO, Saturday)
Every weekend there seems to be at least one mouth-watering clash. It’ll come as no surprise that we’ve picked this one out as the highlight this weekend. It’ll also not be a huge shock that it’s yet another London derby.
There are just 6 points between these two teams but Arsenal will need to win if they’re to have any chance of qualifying for the Champions League next season. If Chelsea take the spoils, it would be hard to imagine the Gunners bridging a 9 point gap.
Arsenal will hope to get back to winning ways after suffering several defeats over the last month or so. Things were going so well and then suddenly the wheels started to come off the bus.
Prediction: We reckon that both teams will score during this game. We should see a fast tempo to the game and plenty of attacking play which is the reasoning behind our decision.
Huddersfield vs Man City (1:30 PM KO, Sunday)
English football fans were astounded when the news broke that David Wagner was stepping down from his role as Huddersfield manager at the start of the week. Despite being rock bottom of the Premier League, he was still adored by the fans for what he achieved.
However, we don’t think the reigning champions will be in a sympathetic mood. They have a Premier League title race on their hands so it’s absolutely essential that they collect all 3 points here.
City will need to be professional and get the job done as Huddersfield have a few decent players in their ranks. It’ll be an interesting watch, that’s for sure.
Prediction: This could go one of two ways. The Terriers could be buoyed by the incoming changes or they could roll over and get steamrolled by City. Either way, we don’t have to wait too long to find out. Our Premier League prediction for this game is over 2.5 goals.
EPL Betting – The Different Bet Types
There are lots of different bet types you can make once you’ve read our EPL expert predictions 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 by betting on football, 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 pur 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 expert EPL 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.
