Premier League Betting Tips

Premier League BetingBy Mark Rawlinson

There are a few tasty ties in this weekend’s Premier League football as we approach the busy festive season.

Manchester City face Arsenal in the Saturday lunchtime kick-off whilst on Sunday afternoon Tottenham Hotspur host Liverpool.

Manchester City v Arsenal

City face a tough test at lunchtime tomorrow when they host table-toppers Arsenal although they go into the game off the back of the fantastic 3-2 win over Champions League holders Bayern Munich.

Manuel Pellegrini is set to welcome Vincent Kompany, Sergio Aguero and Yaya Toure back into the squad after the trio sat out Tuesday’s match although Micah Richards is expected to be ruled out.

Arsenal were defeated 2-0 by Napoli in midweek and boss Arsene Wenger isn’t happy about having to play three matches in six days. Bacary Sagna is a doubt with a hamstring problem but Lukas Podolski is available after a three-month lay-off.

City are favourites for victory with Paddy Power offering odds of 5/6. Boylesports provide the best price on an Arsenal win at 15/4, which is my BET OF THE DAY.

Sergio Aguero is the bookies favourite to open the scoring, Bet 365 offering 5/1, with Bet Victor offering 8/1 on Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud scoring first.

This match is live on BT Sport 1 from 12:45pm.

Hull City v Stoke City

Stoke City will be looking to build on last weekend’s victory over Chelsea but face another tough task away at Hull City, who sit one place above them in the table after a strong start.

Steve Bruce has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the tea-time match with Sone Aluko and Stephen Quinn remaining side-lined with injury.

Thomas Sorensen is set to make his first Premier League start for Stoke since May 2012 after Asmir Begovic picked up an injury in training this week. Erik Peters is available after a groin injury but Matthew Etherington is not yet match fit.

Hull are 13/10 favourites with a number of outlets including Paddy Power, with Stan James providing the best price on a Stoke win at 13/5.

Catch this one live on Saturday night from 5:30pm on Sky Sports 1.

Tottenham v Liverpool

Sixth-placed Tottenham face second-placed Liverpool in the pick of Sunday’s Premier Lague action.

A Roberto Soldado hat-trick rounded off their perfect Europa League group with a 4-1 win over Anzhi Makhachkala on Thursday. Danny Rose and Christian Eriksen made their returns from injury in that match and could feature on Sunday.

Vlad Chiriches and Younes Kaboul are both also doubts whilst an ankle injury rules Jan Vertonghen out.

Liverpool have lost each of their last six matches at White Hart Lane and they will have to do without Steven Gerrard. Jordan Henderson returns after a bruised ankle whilst Daniel Agger is back after illness.

Spurs are slight favourites with Bet Victor offering the best odds of 31/20, whilst William Hill provide the best price of 2/1 on a Liverpool win.

This game is live on Sky Sports 1 from 4pm on Sunday.
