Five Premier League betting tips for the weekend’s action.
Swansea and Reading to draw at 21/10 with William Hill
Many people will expect Swansea City to dominate this game but Reading are trying to get out of the bottom three. Swansea have been inconsistent at home this season with a win, a draw and a defeat which shows that their home form is hardly rock solid. Reading are yet to win away from home but they look a very good tactical side at times and they should have enough to secure a point.
Everton to win away at Wigan at 11/10 with Stan James
Everton have been the surprise package of the season and they will be going for their third away win of the season. Everton have scored six goals on their travels so far in the league which is the same number of goals that Wigan have conceded at home. Everton will be confident because they have played well against some of the bigger teams already this year and they look like a banker away win.
It’s surprising to see Arsenal at anything other than odds on for the away match against West Ham United. Their away form has been efficient but not spectacular with one win and two draws from three games. They have only conceded one goal which came in the trip to Manchester City. West Ham are seventh in the league and yet to lose a game at home but Arsenal should be just a little too strong for them in this game.
Fulham are similar to Everton in the respect that they have started the season extremely well and are playing solidly both home and away. They have lost two matches away from home but Southampton have lost two playing at home. The home side for this match have conceded six goals and Fulham have scored 13 in total which means they should be able to get at the Southampton defence if they can defend well themselves and stay organised.
Newcastle to beat Manchester United at 10/3 with William Hill
It is remarkable to see so many bookmakers offering odds on for a Manchester United win considering the fragility of the away team’s defence. Newcastle can beat anyone playing at home and they have a good record this year with two wins and one draw from their three games. Remember that Newcastle dominated this fixture last season which included an epic own goal from Manchester United defender Phil Jones. Newcastle should be up for it and they have the tools to exploit the weaknesses in the United defence.
