Premier League Betting Tips & Predictions 10-11 November
Cardiff v Brighton
Round 12 of the Premier League betting tips gets started in Wales as Cardiff host Brighton in a 12.30pm kick-off that’ll be shown live on Sky Sports. The home side have struggled to readjust to life at the top level following their summer promotion from the Championship, as their opening 11 results prove. Neil Warnock’s men set-up showing stats of 1-2-8. They’ve lost four of their last five and each of their last two.
The most recent dent to their confidence came last weekend when downed by Leicester City at this venue in what was an emotional match for all concerned following the helicopter crash tragedy at the King Power Stadium. Football was far from the minds of many connected to the away dressing room; however, they did keep their focus on the job and got the points thanks to a single goal from Demari Gray who smashed the ball low and hard into the net early in the second-half.
Brighton Lose Last Time
Brighton are six places higher in the table than their opponents, having won nine more points, their stats 4-2-5. That’s far from impressive, of course, but it’s the kind of start that was expected of the team and they’ll see it as a solid foundation on which to build their campaign. Three wins on the bounce were brought to an end by an improving Everton last weekend; The Toffees snatched a 3-1 at Goodison Park.
Richarlison bagged a brace that day, scoring on 26 and 77 minutes, with Coleman getting the other on 50. That was more than enough to see them better a side who did little more than make things interesting, remaining competitive thanks to a consolation goal from Dunk in the first-half. Chris Hughton blamed a poor second-half performance from his side for the result, admitting his men were beaten by a quality team.
Bookies Give Bluebirds Benefit of the Doubt
There’s not a lot in the home team’s form to suggest we should trust them with our hard-earned cash, but bookmakers are happy to give them the benefit of the doubt and price the locals as favourites in the match winner market, Bet365 handing over 2/1 and we expect that to attract plenty of interest. The draw is 21/10.
That away win is how we intend to play this match as we really don’t think Brighton should be as big as they are. Remember, they’ve won three of their last four and are in with a side who have managed just one win all season. Those who expect a competitive match can back both teams to score at 8/11 for no in the same market.
Crystal Palace v Tottenham
Top of the bill on Saturday night brings a London derby as Crystal Palace welcome neighbours Tottenham to Selhurst Park for a match you can follow live on BT Sport from 5.30pm. The Eagles go into the night on a woeful run of form; they’ve only two wins on the board, against two draws and seven defeats. This record leaves them stuck down in 14th, three better than the relegation zone. They have lost four of their last five and that has fans worried.
Palace left Stamford Bridge empty-handed last Sunday; Chelsea roared to a 3-1 win in front of their own fans. Morata scored a double that day, adding to another from Pedro. Palace offered little by way of a fight, with Townsend hitting a reply on 53 minutes. Could Morata be the answer to Chelsea’s long-running striker problems? He’s certainly good enough when hitting top form and had little trouble putting Palace to the sword. The beaten side finished with just two shots on target.
Spurs Back on Track
Tottenham bounced back from a 1-0 home defeat to Man City last month with a vital win over Wolves, nicking the points by the odd goal in five. It was a thrilling match; the 3-2 result saw them leapfrog rivals Arsenal back into the top-four; the Gunners slipped to their second draw on the bounce. Pochettino and his men have a job on their hands if they are to hold ground between now and the flag; having said that, Champions League football shouldn’t be a distraction for too much longer.
An enjoyable match, Lamela broke the deadlock on 27 minutes and Moura doubled that advantage just minutes later in a sucker-punch for Wolves who had been holding their own up to that point. Kane made it 3-0 on the hour, penalties from Neves and Jimenez setting up a nervy finish. A draw would’ve been unfair on Spurs; however, they were able to hold on for the points. Cutting out defensive errors is vital if Tottenham are to build on that result.
Visitors to Pile on Pressure
It’ll come as no surprise to followers of English football’s top-flight to find Tottenham have been priced as favourites for the points. Backers looking to support the away win can get a handy 17/20 at William Hill. That’s top price and seems about fair, much of the competition stuck around the 8/11 mark. We’ll back the away win as our best bet in this fixture and it should do a job in rounding off your Saturday accumulators.
Palace are outsiders of three in the match betting with12/5 – Bet365 again leading from the front with the market’s most generous offer.
Chelsea v Everton
One of three live matches on a gripping Super Sunday and here we have a meeting of two form sides who will fancy their chances at landing the points. Chelsea sit second in the table going into the weekend; their form so far shows eight wins and three draws from 11 outings, leaving them two points off the pace set by Man City who are 9-2. The Blues have won each of their last two and battered Palace 3-1 at this venue last weekend.
Everton start the round down in ninth place, but they are improving following a slow start to the season and The Toffees have claimed maximum points in four of their last five. They finished October with a 2-1 defeat at Old Trafford but didn’t disgrace themselves in that match, before bouncing back to winning ways with a simple 3-1 over Brighton at Goodison. Richarlison put in another man of the match performance, scoring two goals, Coleman getting the third. An impressive performance, but it was nothing less than they deserved.
Blues Hot Favourites
Despite Everton arriving with confidence in the camp, bookmakers can’t see past a home win and have priced Sarri’s side up as hot favourites to bank a maximum pay-out. Traders at 15/2 (Bet365).
There’s no way Everton should be as big a price as that and we wouldn’t put anyone off an interest play on the value, but it’s not how we’d play it. Looking at the stats you’ll find at least one side failed to find the net in five of the last six games involving these sides. Get your cash on ‘no’ in the both teams to score market at evens with William Hill. One for your accas.
Man City v Man Utd
Manchester City are top of the league going into the round and looking for win number 10 of their season. What better place to get it than at a packed-out Etihad Stadium with bitter rivals Manchester United the opponents. The Cityzens have won each of their last three and are fancied by many to get number four, piling the pressure on Jose Mourinho in the away dug-out. The outcome of this match should tell us what to expect from both sides over the course of winter.
Some experts and newspaper journalists think Mourinho is skating on thin ice at Old Trafford with board members working away behind the scenes to sort out his replacement. Whether you believe that or not, there’s no getting away from the fact The Red Devils have underperformed so far this season, failing to win five of their first 11. They do travel across the city unbeaten in four, that purple patch made up of three wins and a draw.
Can United Upset the Odds?
Bookmakers don’t expect Man Utd to get anything out of this match and traders at Bet365 are confident enough to offer a whopping 15/2 on the away win. That’s stunning and shows just how good City have been this season.
We love the value however and can’t ignore such a hefty price about a team who have more than enough quality to win the points. Keep your stakes small and chance a bet on Man Utd. City lovers will find the pace-setters available at 4/1 with William Hill.
