This week it’s EPL Week 10 and here are your predictions and guide to betting. We’re at about the quarter mark of the season and the league is still looking very open.
EPL Week 10 Predictions: Newcastle v Chelsea betting preview
Newcastle and Chelsea meet at St James’ Park with the respective teams having very different runs of form. The Magpies, having been beaten by local rivals Sunderland despite playing pretty well are rank outsiders at 6.00 in this early (12:45) Saturday kick off game. These odds look pretty good and a draw is at 3.75. Fernando Torres is looking sharp again and having a great season, with Chelsea deservedly starting favourites but Newcastle at home will be desperate for points.
EPL Week 10 Predictions: Fulham v Manchester United betting preview
Fulham host Manchester United at Craven Cottage and this is a game that will see one of the managers under a lot of scrutiny if either loses. United managed to stage a last gasp comeback at home against Stoke last weekend, sparing David Moyes’ blushes. Fulham have been up and down in a real Jekyll and Hyde season, and were comprehensively outplayed by Southampton. The Saints are a fine team but Fulham were awful, and Martin Jol should be nervous. United are favourites to win at 1.60 with the Cottagers quoted at 5.50 for a home victory. A draw looks good value for punters at 4.0.
What a difference a week makes. Before beating Newcastle, it was hard to see much hope for Sunderland in any fixture. And with Hull getting beaten by Tottenham Hotspur twice in the space of a few days (league and Capital One Cup) albeit narrowly the Tigers are on a downer. Bookies have Hull City as home favourites at 2.25 and Sunderland are at 3.30 for a rare away win. If the Black Cats do play with the fire they had against the Magpies you could see them nicking this but Hull are well organised and hard to break down.
EPL Week 10 Predictions: Manchester City v Norwich City betting preview
On the face of it, Manchester City v Norwich City looks like a pretty straightforward prediction. But the big talking point from the last week is England goalkeeper Joe Hart being dropped for Costel Pantilimon. Without Vincent Kompany and with Hart’s howler City were again beaten away from home last week. However, at home Manchester City have won every game and Norwich manager Chris Hughton must be dreading this as Man City look to bounce back. You can help yourself to a massive 15.00 odds for a Norwich win with 6.50 for the draw. The home team are unbackable at 1.20.
EPL Week 10 Predictions: Stoke City v Southampton betting preview
Battle of the red and white stripes. The Saints look to be the better of the two, even though this is at the Brittania. Stoke played well at Old Trafford and were a bit unlucky not to come away with points. Potters manager Mark Hughes will need to get his players well organised to score against this Southampton team that have conceded the least number of goals in the league. Saints start favourites but you get the feeling that this could easily go the way of Stoke who are at 3.00 for a home win.
EPL Week 10 Predictions: West Brom v Crystal Palace betting preview
West Brom up against the hapless Palace. Odds on an Eagles win at The Hawthorns are at 6.00 which could be good value. The way in which West Brom were taken apart by some simply sizzling Liverpool goals would have undone any team and you’d expect the Baggies to bounce back at home against a struggling team.
EPL Week 10 Predictions: West Ham United v Aston Villa betting preview
West Ham and Villa. I always found it hard to tell these two teams apart as a kid, and it’ll be hard to predict which one will come away on top here. The Hammers are up and down but at home are slight favourites against Villa at 2.25 for the win. A draw or Villa win at 3.30.
EPL Week 10 Predictions: Arsenal v Liverpool betting preview
The most eagerly anticipated fixture of the round. Arsenal are home favourites at 2.29 but have suffered injury blows and Liverpool are a force to be reckoned with again. Super Suarez and Sturridge were on fire last week and a repeat of that kind of performance would see them win for sure at the Emirates. This is going to be hard to predict but Liverpool win at 3.25 looks to be pretty good value.
EPL Week 10 Predictions: Everton v Tottenham Hotspur betting preview
Everton coming up against Tottenham is another game where two teams are going to be extremely evenly matched and at Goodison the Toffees may have the advantage. On 18 and 19 points respectively, Spurs were fortunate with a penalty decision to get a home win over Hull last week. However, as AVB keeps pointing out, despite one loss over leaders Arsenal Tottenham have won every other away match. Everton start as favourites at 2.50, Spurs are at 2.90 and a draw could be the sensible option at 3.25.
EPL Week 10 Predictions: Cardiff City v Swansea City betting preview
The Swans are on the road after two home games but it’s only a short trip to their Welsh neighbours for the first ever Premier League Welsh derby between these two. The visitors start as away favourites with bookies at 2.29 and better odds can in fact be had on a draw (3.30) than a home win (3.20). With derbies anything can happen and the form book sometimes gets thrown out of the window so a Cardiff home win will fans at full voice could be a good tip.
