Premier League Betting Previews, Tips and Odds 31/1/17

by 30th January 2017

Betting previews for Premier League matches to be played the 31st January and 1st February 2017

Fixture congestion may be bad for the players, but it is certainly good for the fans and especially punters. There is a full schedule of Premier League games this midweek on Tuesday and Wednesday. Here is our thoughts and tips for betting over the two exciting nights of top-flight football:

Tuesday 31st January 2017

Arsenal v Watford
On Tuesday night Arsenal seem to have a good old fashioned home banker against struggling Watford. The Gunners have recorded five straight Premier League wins at the Emirates, while Watford have lost six of their last seven away games in the top-flight.
We would suggest you back the home win. However, an Arsenal victory brings you hardly any value for your stake. The alternative bet we would recommend for this clash is over 2.5 goals scored available at odds of 4/7 with Betfair.

Bournemouth v Crystal Palace
Bournemouth head into this clash on their worse run of form in the top-flight this season, having recorded just one win in their last six league outings. Luckily for the Cherries, Crystal Palace are in even worse form, as the Eagles have lost six of their last seven league games.
Bournemouth are inconsistent, but Palace have shown very little sign of improvement under Sam Allardyce. We recommend you back the home win, available at odds of 11/10 at Betfair.

Burnley v Leicester
Burnley have endured a topsy-turvy campaign so far this season, as Sean Dyche’s team are fantastic at home, but woeful on their travels. The Clarets have a formidable home record, picking up wins in their last six home games in all competitions. Dyche’s team have also kept clean sheets in their last three home games.
Leicester have endured a nightmare Premier League campaign, particularly on their travels. The Foxes have failed to win any of their last 13 games on their travels in the Premier League. Claudio Ranieri’s side have also scored in just one of their last four away games in the league.
We cannot look past the home win in this one and the Clarets can be backed at odds of 21/10 with Betway Sports to record maximum points.

Middlesbrough v West Brom
Boro have struggled in the Premier League of late, winning just once in their last eight outings in the top-flight. Aitor Karanka’s team are flirting with the relegation zone and are just four points above the drop zone.
West Brom have been in decent form of late in the Premier League, winning three of their last four outings in the top-flight. However, their away record is not great, as the Baggies have won just two of their last ten games on their travels in the top-flight.
For us the away win at odds of 11/5 with Betway Sports looks to be a tempting bet, considering Boro’s poor recent form.

Sunderland v Tottenham
Morale is low at Sunderland at the moment, as the Black Cats are propping up the league table. David Moyes’ side have failed to win any of their last seven games in all competitions. That poor record is unlikely to change in this clash.
Tottenham head into this clash in good form, having recorded eight wins from their last nine outings in all competitions. Spurs have been highly prolific of late, finding the net at least twice in their last nine games.
Tottenham look good for a win in this clash, but a Spurs win offers little value. For our recommended bet we are going to say go with the over 2.5 goals scored available at odds of 4/6 at Winner Sports.

Swansea v Southampton
Swansea moved out of the relegation zone with a superb 3-2 win at Liverpool last time out in the Premier League. The win came out of the blue but will have boosted the morale within the Welsh club’s dressing room.
Southampton looked to have hit form, but a 5-0 home mauling at the hands of Arsenal in the FA Cup fourth round proved that the Saints are still slightly inconsistent.
Southampton head into this clash as favourites. However, we are backing the Swans to build on that win at Liverpool and record another win in this clash. Paul Clement’s side can be backed for victory at odds of 12/5 with Betway.

Liverpool v Chelsea
Liverpool’s form has nosedived of late, as the Reds have won just once in their last eight outings. Three successive defeats at Anfield does not bode well for a Reds win. However, Liverpool have a tendency to lift their game in big clashes.
The visitors know that a win in this game could be vital in the race for the Premier League title. The Blues have looked formidable of late, winning 15 of their last 16 games in the top-flight. However, this will not be an easy one for the Blues.

Wednesday 1st February 2017

West Ham v Manchester City
The home side have recorded consecutive wins in the Premier League, scoring three goals in both victories. However, the Hammers form on home soil has not been great this season and this game represents a big challenge for Slaven Bilic’s team.
City have been criticised this season and have slipped-up in too many games to be considered realistic title challengers. Last time out though the Citizens coasted to a 3-0 win Crystal Palace in the FA Cup fourth round.

Manchester United v Hull City
Manchester United’s form has been decent of late and over two legs got the better of the Tigers in the EFL Cup a few weeks ago. The Red Devils are strong on home soil, having gone 17 games without defeat on home soil.
Hull have improved under new boss Marco Silva, but are still low on quality and will no doubt attempt to contain the Red Devils. For that reason, we recommend that you back the under 2.5 goals at odds of 8/5 at Betfair.

Stoke v Everton
Stoke’s form has improved of late and the Potters are now three games unbeaten in the top-flight. The Potters form has been decent at home and the side from the Potteries have lost just one of their last nine outings on home soil in the top-flight.
Everton have hit form of late, winning four of their last five league games. The Toffees are also unbeaten in their last three away games in the top-flight, winning twice. Ronald Koeman’s side will travel to Staffordshire in confident mood.
However, we believe that Stoke have enough quality to hold the Toffees to a draw.
