Premier league football returns after a week’s absence due to the F.A. Cup 3rd round ties and there are a few mouth-watering matches to warm us up during the current cold spell (certain parts of the UK are experiencing).
The lads (and lady) are in the office and heavy debate has been going round as to what will happen this weekend. So let’s not wait any longer, here are our top two Premier League betting tips for this weekend’s premier league football action.
Tottenham Hotspur Vs West Bromwich Albion
This one has certain divided opinion at Gamblers’ Tower – mainly because we have a bias Spurs fan on the books. On paper, it looks like a clear cut home win. Tottenham are on an incredible run winning their last 6 straight which included a very impressive 2-0 win over Chelsea a fortnight ago.
And, as the table illustrates, Spurs have yet to lose a league game at home this season – winning eight and drawing two.
On the other hand, West Brom have already lost 4 matches away from the Hawthorns so it seems crazy to bet against Spurs for this one.
(a cheer can be heard coming from the corner of our office)
But, and yes there is a but! Tony Pulis has a good record against Spurs. There is no exact logic to it but his teams usually perform well when playing Tottenham. Admittedly, they don’t win all that often but the fact is they rarely lose either with the last 3 meetings between these two sides all having finished 1-1.
Tottenham are 3/10 for the win with West Brom a huge 10/1 to grab the spoils and the draw being priced at a tempting 4/1. Much to the dismay of our resident lilywhite, the vote here has gone for this being another draw and Tottenham’s title push being slowed down by Tony’s merry men.
Everton Vs Manchester City
When it comes to offering premier league football betting tips Manchester City are simply a nightmare because you never know which City will turn up (and in all fairness the same could be said for Everton). For example, Manchester City impressed when beating Arsenal only to be thrashed by Leicester. Everton also beat Arsenal to then follow that by losing to Watford. It really is a pin the tail on the donkey type of season for both clubs and their supporters.
That said, City like playing Everton. The last time Man City lost a league fixture against the Toffees was in March 2013 so we are siding with Pep lads to pick up all three points again here.
Manchester City are a short 4/5 for the win which is not exactly generous so a half-time/full-time bet is where we are heading.
You can get 15/4 on it being level (draw) at half-time with Manchester City full-time. So, let’s hope Everton hold firm for the first 45 minutes and then Sergio (or any other Man City player) can work their magic.
