Premier League Betting Tips

Premier League BetingBy Mark Rawlinson

Manchester united face Arsenal in the pick of the fixtures on what is another busy weekend of Premier League action.

Norwich City V West Ham United

The tea-time game on Saturday sees two sides struggling towards the bottom of the table set to fight it out for the three points which would alleviate their relegation worries.

Norwich City slipped into the bottom three following last weekend’s humiliating 7-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester City.

Chris Hughton has been widely tipped as the next Premier League manager to lose his job, and if he can’t turn things around, that is quite possible.

He’s set to welcome Robert Snodgrass back into his squad following concussion but striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel will again miss out with a toe injury.

Visitors West Ham currently lie 15th in the league, after failing to pick up any wins in their last three matches.

Their last victory came on October 6th with an excellent 3-0 win at Tottenham but they’ve struggled to score since then, with Sam Allerdyce’s 4-6-0 formation reaping just one goal in the last three games.

The Canaries are slight favourites heading into the game, with Bet 365 providing the best odds of 13/8 whilst Bet Victor offer the best price on a Hammers win at 2/1.

You can watch this one live on Sky Sports 1 from 5:30pm.

Sunderland v Manchester City

Despite their derby day win against Newcastle a fortnight ago, Sunderland remain in deep trouble and are currently five points from safety after last weekend’s 1-0 defeat to Hull City.

Gus Poyet may have to go with Vito Mannone in goal if Kieran Westwood has not recovered from concussion suffered after a collision in the Hull game although Wes Brown could make his first league start in 22 months.

City are certainly in a goal-scoring mood at the moment and after netting the seven in the league last weekend, put five past CSKA Moscow in Tuesday’s Champions League match as they ran out 5-2 winners.

Sergio Aguero has netted three goals in the last two games but City are without David Silva who has been ruled out for a month with a calf injury. Vincent Kompany still remains side-lined.

City are big favourites, with Paddy Power offering the best odds of 2/5 whilst Bet 365 amongst others, provide odds of 8/1 on what would be a surprise Sunderland win.

This game is live on Sky Sports 1 from 2:05pm on Sunday afternoon.

Manchester United v Arsenal

Then at 4:10pm, Arsenal face another tough test in the shape of a recently resurgent Manchester United. After a less than impressive start to the season, The Red Devils are now unbeaten in eight in all competitions.

David Moyes will be without Rafael and Danny Welbeck who are both out injured but Jonny Evans and Michael Carrick are both in line to return to the team.

Arsenal are five points clear at the top of the league and became the first team to beat Borussia Dortmund at home this season as the in-form Aaron Ramsey helped them to a 1-0 win.

But Arsene Wenger has a number of players out through injury, including Theo Walcott, Yaya Sanogo, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lukas Podolski and Abou Diaby but Mathieu Flamini returns from a groin injury.

Paddy Power provide the best odds on a United win at 7/5 whilst the Bet 365 offer 23/10 on an Arsenal win, which is my Bet of the Weekend.
