EPL predictions software is all the rage right now, but does it work? Can a computer program actually help you to beat the bookie on a more frequent basis? Gamblers Pro intends to find out.
Throughout the course of the 2019/2020 English Premier League season, our team is going to review several popular Premier League prediction apps and list their recommended bets on this page.
English Premier League Predictions for Saturday
Son’s last-gasp winner snatched defeat from the jaws of victory last week. That would have been a tasty 275% profit if the match had ended in a draw. No doubt, these EPL predictions and tips are about fine margins. The other Rank A was a double chance on Newcastle, but they crumbled at the Emirates, so no joy there either.
With that said, the computer is still in profit for the season, and that’s the main thing to a degree. Let’s see what Rank ‘A’ bets our trusted EPL predictions software throws up this week. You can check further down the page to see the overall profit for the season. For now, here are the tips for this week:
Newcastle vs Burnley
Bet: Over 0.5 (Total goals market)
Bookmaker Odds: 1.10 >> Bet Now at Betway
It’s not too often that 1.10 on over 0.5 goals pops up among the Rank A EPL predictions. At only 1.10, we aren’t to make a fortune, but profit is profit in this game.
Tottenham vs Wolves
Bet: Tottenham win (Match result market)
Bookmaker Odds: 3.25 (Tipico)
No Harry Kane. No Son. Spurs are suffering at the moment from a lack of firepower. The computer generated these EPL predictions, but we don’t have to agree with them. What do you think? A value bet?
As always, we list a few of the bets from Ranks B – D. For the record, five out of six of these landed last week. Although, we don’t include them in a profit/loss running total, there are clearly some great EPL predictions among this lot.
Bournemouth vs Chelsea (Rank B)
Bet: No (BTTS market)
Bookmaker Odds: 2.25 (Pinnacle)
Even at these odds, we don’t fancy this EPL prediction – but – we’ve been wrong before.
West Ham vs Southampton (Rank B)
Bet: 1X (Double chance market)
Bookmaker Odds: 1.78 (1XBet)
After a decent performance against Liverpool, we think this is a good bet on Moyes’ boy. Double chance, so they don’t even need to win.
Norwich vs Leicester (Rank C)
Bet: Leicester win (Match result market)
Bookmaker Odds: 1.78 (1xBet)
The Canaries look doomed, unfortunately. This should be a comfortable win for the Foxes. Not bad value at 1.78. Worth putting on your coupon
Brighton vs Crystal Palace (Rank C)
Bet: Crystal Palace win (Match result market)
Bookmaker Odds: 4.07 (Unibet)
Risky – but quite some price. Tempting but not for us. Potentially a good in-play cash out wager.
Understandably, if you’ve never tinkered with computer programmes that churn out EPL betting tips, you may be confused as to how the software is arriving at these predictions. In short, based on known data, the programme will offer an ‘estimated probability prediction’ for each possible outcome.
Example: Chelsea vs Leicester (from matchday 2), the software estimated a 30% chance of the match being a draw. Next, it compares this figure with the betting odds (which were as high as 4.00 at some bookmakers) to see if this wager is profitable over the long-term. i.e: we win 3 out of 10 bets (30%). The winning bets each return 3 betting units profit = 9 in total. We lost 7 betting units from the other wagers. Overall profit +2 betting units.
We began last week €76.86 in profit. We placed two Rank A bets (2 x €10), however, both were unsuccessful. Therefore, our EPL predictions profit for the season stands at …
Premier League Table Predictions
Many of our readers have asked us for our 2019-2020 Premier League table predictions so they can place their outright bets.
To be honest, we couldn’t find enough value in the market this season for it to interest us. We believe Manchester City and Liverpool will be the two teams battling it out again. None of the chasing pack have added enough quality to mount a serious threat in our opinion.
With Man City being priced at 1.50 with some bookies and Liverpool as low as 3.50, you can see why we’ve given this a wide berth. Having said that, Arsenal at 51.00 did raise an eyebrow for a cheeky each-way punt, but only the top two places pay at most betting sites, so decided to sit this one out.
EPL Predictions – Man Vs Machine
Match statistics and analytics have become more widespread in recent years. Perhaps, punters watched Brad Pitt in Moneyball and all wanted to join the Sabermetrics party.
We’re certain that there is value in this data which is why we decided to set up this challenge. We hope you find it interesting and that the EPL predictions we provide are of value.
Best Free EPL Tips FAQ
A. What is the difference between Rank A, B, C and D bets?
Quite simply, Rank A bets ‘should’ be more profitable over the duration of the season. This doesn’t necessarily just mean winning bets, the odds have right as well.
A. Why doesn’t the software predict Liverpool and Man City to win?
While these two teams do win a lot of games, bookmakers don’t offer enough value in the market compared to the implied risk. For example: Man City vs Brighton. The match outcome probabilities are 83% Man City win. 12% draw and 5% Brighton win. Man City are 1.08 (at some bookies). Therefore, if you placed this bet at these odds 100 times and won 83 times, you would end up at a loss.
