10 Premier Leagues take place over the coming weekend including Chelsea v Man Utd at Stamford Bridge on Sunday
WhichBookie football analyst Matt Le Tissier returns to share his thoughts and betting tips for all upcoming matches including his NAP of the week and two good-looking doubles.
If I’m having a of bet on this match, it would be a small one on West Ham who I think are massively overpriced at 12/1. They’ve only lost one of their last eleven matches which was against Liverpool so a small punt on an away win is what I’d go for. Although, it’s not a great game for betting.
|Man City v West Ham|
I’m going to go for West Brom here. They’ve had a couple of good results recently having gotten a draw against Man Utd and another against Brighton when they were down to 10 men for 60 minutes and still looked the more likely team to go on and win the game. If they can keep 11 men on the pitch then I think odds of over 3/1 for a home win is a decent price.
|West Brom v Brighton|
I wasn’t particularly impressed with Leeds in the first half against Southampton and I think they were quite fortunate to go into half time level. Villa are much more solid defensively than Southampton at the moment and I think if Grealish is back in the team, the 23/10 on Villa are pretty good odds.
I’d wait until the lineup is announced but if Grealish features, I’d back Villa.
|Leeds v Aston Villa|
Wolves to beat Newcastle will be my NAP this week. Callum Wilsons absence makes it incredibly difficult for Newcastle. If Wolves can keep Allan Saint-Maximin quiet then I think they can win the game. He’s almost the only threat Newcastle possess going forward.
Wolves have turned a bit of a corner after a poor run, winning three of their last four and I think 13/10 is a good price on them for Saturday.
|Newcastle v Wolves (NAP)|
Looking at the odds, I wouldn’t be backing Fulham at just over even money away from home. They’ve had a decent run lately and they came in for my NAP last week but I don’t think the odds for them to beat Palace are justifiable.
Palace will definitely get a boost from beating Brighton last week and I think 5/2 for a home win is way overpriced. I’m thinking the draw is likely but 5/2 is very tempting on Palace.
Palace will go in a double this week with West Brom.

I’m going to side with Leicester on this one. It’s a match that you could decide on the toss of a coin as you don’t know which Arsenal side will turn up but Leciester seem to be in much better form in the league. They’ve had good wins against Liverpool and Villa and I don’t see any reason why they can’t back that up with a win against Arsenal.
I’ll be putting Leciester in a double this week with Everton.
|Leicester v Arsenal|
I’d go with Spurs in this match at around 11/20. They haven’t been in great form recently but they do tend to beat the teams nearer the bottom such as their most recent wins against Sheff Utd and West Brom. The price is just about good enough to back a home win here.
|Tottenham v Burnley|
This one is a tough one for me. I don’t usually like to back the draw but I can’t separate the two at the moment. Chelsea have picked up under Tuchel but United haven’t had a defeat away from home all season so this has got a draw written all over it.
I wouldn’t expect United to lose this game but with the form Chelsea are in, I wouldn’t expect them to lose it either so the draw seems like the logical conclusion in this game.

Liverpool are in awful form with injuries and all sorts. It’s not a great game for betting but if I was having a bet, it would be a very small punt on the outsiders who have been able to beat Man Utd at Old Trafford.
|Sheffield United v Liverpool|
Everton are overpriced for me here. With the form Southampton are in at the moment, I don’t have a lot of confidence and seeing Everton as not odds-on was a huge shock to me. Everton to win will be my bet here and they’ll be in a double with Leicester this week.
