Where should I be investing my money?
First up, the clash between Tottenham and Newcastle on Saturday. Spurs are currently third in the table but could go second with a win here in front of their own fans, and the side come into the match having won their last two league outings.
Newcastle, by way of comparison, have also won their last two league matches, but find themselves down in 14th place. Last time out they beat champions Manchester City and they will be looking to carry that momentum into this challenge against another top team.
And it is indeed Tottenham who come into this match as the clear favourites to take the points. You can back the home side to make it three league wins in a row at just 1.40, while Newcastle are out at 7.50 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 4.50, according to Oddsshark.
We are expecting home advantage to be a deciding factor in this clash. A narrow, 2-1 win for Spurs is priced at 9.50, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$47.50 pay out, while you can more than double your money by backing both teams to score at 2.05.
City look to get back on track against Arsenal
The following day, defending champions Manchester City will be looking to get back on track when they host Arsenal. City suffered a shock loss to Newcastle last time out and as a result are now five points behind table toppers Liverpool – City are now out at 2.75 to retain their title.
Arsenal, by way of comparison, are coming into this match on the back of two straight wins which have taken them up into fourth. The Gunners are at 3.20 to finish in the top four come the end of the season and qualify for next season’s edition of the UEFA Champions League.
And it is City who come into this match as the overwhelming favourites to pick up a much needed win. You can back the champions to take the points at just 1.28, while Arsenal are out at 8.50 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 6.00.
Given the midweek results this match could well end up honours even. A 1-1 draw is priced competitively at 13.00, thereby offering more than a ten-fold return on any investment, while you could more than triple your money by backing under 2.5 goals in the game at 3.20.
Liverpool could extend lead at top at West Ham
And finally, Monday Night Football this week comes from the London Stadium as West Ham host Liverpool. The Hammers have lost their last three matches across all competitions and are currently languishing in the bottom half of the table.
Liverpool, in stark contrast, sit five points clear at the top of the table and are closing in on their first ever Premier League crown. The Reds are the favourites to win the title and are priced at just 1.50 to do so.
Regarding this match, it is visitors Liverpool who come in as the red hot favourites to triumph. You can back the league leaders to take all three points at just 1.33 while West Ham, despite home advantage, are out at 8.00 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 5.25.
This should be a comfortable evening for the away side. A 2-0 win for Liverpool comes in at 8.00, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$40 pay out, while you can more than double your money by backing under 2.5 goals in the game at 2.37.
