​​English Premier League Betting: Round 5

See the BetU tips for round 5 of the English Premier League.

Betting summary: +50

 

Round four of the Premier League is in the books and already the top of the table is stating to take shape with Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City all hovering near the top after they all won their respective fixtures.

 

Everton continued their fine start to the season with a gutsy 3-1 win over Burnley. The shock of the round and perhaps season so far came courtesy of Crystal Palace who had far too much for a beleaguered Tottenham. Elsewhere there were wins for Brighton, Wolves and Arsenal with Southampton and West Ham sharing the spoils after they played out a 0-0 draw.

 

Our bets in round 4 were close, with both Arsenal and Liverpool getting the job done, Brentford who had some good opportunities sadly let us down, losing with the last kick of the game to Brighton. Still we are +50 for the season and will be trying to find a winner this weekend.

Bet 1: Chelsea to beat Tottenham - 7/10

 

A London Derby is the headline fixture this weekend as both Tottenham and Chelsea will be looking to maintain their grip towards the top of the table. Chelsea head into this match full of confidence after victories against Aston Villa and Zenit St Petersburg, although both Villa and Zenit had some good goal scoring opportunities, Chelsea never needed to get out of second gear to win both matches.

 

Tottenham were simply woeful against Crystal Palace and put in a shocker of a attacking performance. With injuries still lingering in particular to Son Heung Min and key defender Eric Dier it’s difficult to see Tottenham having enough to win, however the return of South American trio Cristian Romero, Davinson Sanchez and Giovanni Lo Celso will increase their chances. Spurs have lost at home to Chelsea for the last two years and we see that trend continuing here.

 

Bet 2: Wolves to beat Brentford - 17/20

 

I have been lucky enough to watch a lot of Wolves this season and they have been so unlucky to only have only three points on the board. They have been the better team against Leicester, Spurs and Man United and somehow lost all three. Last week they travelled to Watford and finally managed to find the back of the net, running out comfortable 2-0 winners. 

 

Adama Traore has been in sensational form all season and we are backing on him, along with new signing Hwang, who was so impressive in scoring on his debut proving the difference in what looks bound to be a tight game.

 

Winning away from home in the Premier League is never easy and this will be a tough task and a good test for Brentford  in seeing where they currently are. 

 

A concern for the Bees has to be a lack of goals as Brentford haven’t scored a goal in two of their four matches. Although they are sitting on five points, it will be interesting to see how they bounce back after conceding so late and losing to Brighton last week. This will be a difficult assignment for Thomas Frank’s men and is one where we see them just failing short.

 

Bet 3: Burnley vs Arsenal - under 2.5 goals Yes - 17/20

 

Arsenal got off the mark with a shaky but much needed win against Norwich last week and ahead of a North London derby against Spurs, the Gunners will be looking for another three points against a tough and physically demanding Burnley team. Scoring goals still seems a problem for Arsenal as they have only managed to score one all season and in a game that is going to be scrappy, and at times ugly, I see that trend continuing here.

 

Burnley will have been disappointed with how they have started the season only amassing one point through the first four games. The club will have been buoyed with the news that manager Sean Dyche has committed himself to another four years in the job so expect Burnley to come out motivated and roaring. 

 

Despite both team’s slow start to the season, I think the under 2.5 goals market is a good one to bet on as Arsenal have only seen over 2.5 goals occur in one of their four previous games and Burnley have a 50% strike rate when involved in games that have seen over 2.5 goals this season.

 

These sides haven’t scored over 2.5 goals in the last three matches they have played against each other, with only three goals being scored in total across these games. With both teams desperately needing a win, we are banking on a game of few big chances to help see our bet home.

 

A bet on Chelsea, Wolves and there being under 2.5 goals returns approx 5/1.
