The Premier League Returns: Our Best Bets

0

There is no bigger league in the football world than the Premier League, and even after a fortnight that has treated us to international action ahead of the European Championships, it’s the domestic fixtures that top the bill this coming weekend. . 

There’s some cracking crunch matches to look forward to, and with the help of the Oddsmanager football odds we’ve scrolled through the latest betting to put together a football acca from our best bets which will hopefully help you to land a winner of your own this Saturday.  

Chelsea v West Brom

Chelsea are in flying form at the minute and host a struggling West Brom side who haven’t really got going under Sam Allardyce. 

The Blues are now unbeaten in 15 matches, winning their last three at Stamford Bridge and haven’t conceded at home in all competitions since January. In fact, they’ve only been beaten twice at home in all competitions this season, and those two defeats came against Liverpool and Manchester City, which is more than respectable. 

West Brom, on the other hand, have won just one away game since returning to the Premier League this season and they will have their work cut out to improve that record in Saturday’s early kick-off. 

Chelsea are without doubt the best bet, but throw in a win-to-nil for the Blues to enhance your odds. 

Leeds United v Sheffield United

A Yorkshire Derby is always a highlight to any Premier League season, and after going so long without one in the top flight, you can be sure that both teams will be throwing both barrels at winning this one. 

Sheffield United are as good as relegated after a disappointing season that has seen them part company with Chris Wilder, so although the three points on Saturday might not save their campaign, they’ll be desperate to grab local bragging rights for their supporters. 

In the last few months, they have all gone the way of Leeds United, who have been a breath of fresh air in the Premier League this season, and have become many supporters’ second team to follow thanks to their open, attacking style of play under Marcelo Bielsa. 

It’s that style that could be too much for the Blades to handle this Saturday and with Leeds United having their chance to move into the top half with victory, expect the Whites to pick up maximum points at Elland Road. 

They haven’t been brilliant in the last few weeks, but are unbeaten in their last two thanks to a draw with the in-form Chelsea and a victory over a resurgent Fulham side last time out. That should be enough to get past Sheffield United, but judging by some of Leeds’ performances this season, it’s likely they’ll be plenty of goals scored.

Leicester City v Manchester City

The Foxes headed into the international break with an dominant victory over Manchester United, which ensured their place in the FA Cup semi-finals later this season, where they could go on to meet Manchester City in the final. 

The Citizens are pulling clear at the top of the Premier League table and currently have their eyes set on winning a famous quadruple this season, but can probably afford to let their league form slip and still win the title, which could open the door for Leicester City this weekend. 

It would be a memorable seasonal double if they were able to do so, as the Foxes beat City 5-2 at the Etihad earlier this season, and also beat them at the King Power in 2018. But it’s not just head-to-head form that gives Leicester a chance either, as they are unbeaten in their last four matches, winning the last three, including that win over Manchester United and a 5-0 drumming of Sheffield United. 

City will have to be on their guard if they want to get something from the game, and for that extra bit of value in your weekend football acca, adding Leicester City to your slip might be a risk worth taking when the Premier League returns.
