The Premier League teams are having a roll of fixtures with back-to-back games just before a short break with the cup fixtures around the corner. A lot of movements will happen around the tables and we can surely expect some drama this game week.
Here are a few of the best selections for our readers to go by when selecting their favorite teams to bet on.
Manchester United picked up where they left off ahead of the World Cup, with the Red Devils now winning their last five competitive games. They’ve jumped into the Champions League spots, while another win looks to be on the way with Bournemouth arriving at Old Trafford in awful form. With four wins in the last five games in Premier League, Manchester United has been in great form and that translated into their rise in the standings as well since they are now in fourth place. Meanwhile, Bournemouth lost five of their last six games and they are struggling. So, Man Utd should be able to win this game. Bet9ja have 1.28 odds, Paripesa have 1.30 odds and 1xBet have 1.30 odds.
Arsenal will host Newcastle on Tuesday, January 3rd, which will be the first game for both teams in the new year. Despite missing their first striker Gabriel Jesus after the league restarted, Arsenal kept their greeting and notched two more wins, scoring seven goals in the process. The team now remains on a great path to winning their first title since 2004, but now they will face Newcastle, who remains in third place and without a loss in the last 12 Premier League matches. So, this can be a very close game, but Arsenal beat Newcastle in four of their last five meetings, and with them hosting the game, we can see the Gunners adding three more points to their tally. Bet9ja have 1.83 odds, Paripesa have 1.83 odds and 1xBet have 1.83 odds.
Wout Faes had a tough night at Anfield on Friday, as the Leicester player scored both of Liverpool’s goals in a 2-1 victory for the Reds. Jurgen Klopp’s side has now won their last four Premier League games, boosting their hopes of a top-four finish this term. Both teams are doing well at the moment, but Liverpool is currently on a four-game winning streak. With that in mind, we expect the guests to continue that streak and win their fifth game in a row. On Friday night, Brentford also scored three points by hosting West Ham. The fact that Ivan Toney had to be replaced after getting hurt made that victory expensive. Despite having a perfect record, the Bees are without Kristoffer Ajer, their finest defender and leading scorer. After all, Liverpool is the better team of the two without a doubt, and with Brentford likely missing their top goalscorer Ivan Toney, the Reds should have an easier job on Monday. Bet9ja have 1.58 odds, Paripesa have 1.60 odds and 1xBet have 1.60 odds.
The host team hasn’t been doing well in the competition at the beginning. The team has six losses in the competition and is presently in 11th position with 19 points. Tottenham, however, remains in fourth place and harbors hopes of making it to the Champions League final. After experiencing some failures in recent games, the squad was able to bounce back, and they are now striving to win to maintain their position among the top teams. Tottenham needs a win to keep up the pressure at the top and also secure champions league spots. We can see them take home three points here in this London derby. Bet9ja have 2.24 odds, Paripesa have 2.28 odds and 1xBet have 2.28 odds.
Although they have given up in four of their past five games, Brentford has scored in their last five games. Yoaa and Bryan Mbeumo, who is anticipated to start up front for the Bees, provide a scoring threat outside of Toney for the team. In each of the visitors’ last five league games, both teams have scored, while 12 goals have been scored in their three games since the World Cup. Last season, both matches between Liverpool and Brentford concluded with three goals or more, one of them with six! Therefore, a wise wager for this game would be on them to be over 2.5 total goals. After all, Liverpool just averaged 3.25 goals per game in the Premier League, whereas Branford averaged 3.18 goals per game in the league this season. Bet9ja have 1.54 odds, Paripesa have 1.53 odds and 1xBet have 1.53 odds.
The Cherries have shipped 26 goals in just eight away games so far, which is the second most by a team after their first eight away matches in a Premier League season, one goal shy of Burnley in 2009-10. Manchester United have won seven of their 10 Premier League meetings with the Cherries and they’ve got a 100% record against the bottom five teams in the league this term. Given United’s impressive run defensively and the fact that the visitors concede 3.25 goals per away game, the hosts should win by two clear goals. We expect this match to be goal ridden and we can see an over 2.5 goals outcome. Bet9ja have 1.50 odds, Paripesa have 1.50 odds and 1xBet have 1.50 odds.
After dropping six of their first seven games of the season, Leicester appeared to be a relegation threat. However, their recent success has propelled them to 13th place. After a favorable stretch of games, they were able to turn their campaign around. Fulham’s goals are higher but Leicester’s are struggling to match any of the top 10. The Cottagers have only lost to the top five teams in the league this season, and they have a great record against teams who are placed lower in the standings. Both sides have a lot of potential goalscorers and we could be in for a proper fixture with goals at both ends of the pitch. Bet9ja have 1.70 odds, Paripesa have 1.80 odds and 1xBet have 1.80 odds.
On January 4th, Leeds and West Ham square off for three points in the Barclays Premier League. Overall, after 10 games, Leeds has scored 18 goals and lost 5, which is equal to West Ham’s 15-goal total but fewer losses. In 8 of Leeds’s previous 10 games, the BTTS & Over 2.5 goals market won. Leeds gave up 2.1 goals per game on average. Leeds has played in 8 of the last 10 games, and 8 of those last 10 games have concluded with Over 2.5 Goals. Not much should be said about this match up but we can consider history here and go for an over 2.5 goals outcome. Bet9ja have 1.76 odds, Paripesa have 1.85 odds and 1xBet have 1.85 odds.
Anytime Goal scorers
Salah wasn’t on the scoresheet against Leicester in their last game but none of their teammates did and his side won the match eventually. We expect the Egyptian to step up today as he would be keen to lead his side to a comfortable spot in the top four places. A bonus is that he is on penalty duties which counts. Bet9ja have 2.15 odds while Paripesa have 2.00 odds.
One of the main reasons behind Manchester United’s good form in the latest matches is Marcus Rashford’s bonuses in great form himself this season with six goals and three assists. So, given that we expect a relatively easy and perhaps convincing win for Man Utd, Rashford should be one of the players to find the net, especially since he is the team’s best goalscorer this season already. Bet9ja have 2.50 odds while Paripesa have 2.75 odds.
England international might have been missing in his side’s disappointing loss to Aston Villa and he would bounce back from that in today’s fixture. He has had a very good season despite the results with 13 goals in the league already this campaign. Kane has a thing for scoring in London derbies and this is one of them even if it’s not a major one. He has a good history against this side and we see him scoring here today. Bet9ja have 2.30 odds while Paripesa have 2.20 odds.
With Brighton in fine form on their travels, it shouldn’t be a surprise that they pack a punch on the road. Leandro Trossard has been a particular pain away from home, as he’s scored five of his seven Premier League goals this season away from the Amex. He hit a hat-trick on his last visit to Merseyside, earning Brighton a point at Liverpool in Roberto De Zerbi’s first game in charge. Back him to add to that with a strike against a vulnerable Everton defense on Tuesday. Bet9ja have 3.00 odds while Paripesa have 3.74 odds.
