Premier League tips for this weekend
Another full weekend of Premier League action is upon us and as always, the Squawka Bet experts have been picking out their bets to place on all of the action. You may want to follow these and place a few bets of your own, or go against us to give yourself a better chance of pulling away from Team Squawka in the rankings, but either way, here’s what we’re backing.
Brighton vs Leeds
Leeds may have been known for their high-scoring games over the course of the season, but perhaps Marcelo Bielsa’s high-intensity style is finally starting to take it’s toll on the players at Elland Road. Last weekend’s fixture versus Manchester United ended goalless and none of their last ten games have seen more than three goals scored.
Brighton are not the team to watch if you’re looking for entertainment at the moment. The Seagulls have failed to score in their last three games, playing out goalless draws against Everton and Chelsea before going down 1-0 at already relegated Sheffield United last week. Don’t expect a thriller at the Amex Stadium.
Chelsea’s defensive record under Thomas Tuchel has been remarkably good. The Blues have kept two clean sheets in their last two Premier League games against Brighton & Hove Albion and West Ham United, meaning they have now conceded in only four of the 14 league fixtures they have played under their German head coach.
The visitors to Stamford Bridge this weekend are local rivals Fulham, who look set for relegation now having picked up just one point from the last available 15. The Cottagers have failed to score in four of their last eight league games so could struggle against this imperious Blues backline on Saturday evening.
Everton have stayed true to type this season with inconsistency keeping them from lauching a real challenge for a top four finish. The Toffees’ win at Arsenal last time out was their first win in six and they’ve managed to open the scoring just twice across those six fixtures, going behind in home matches against the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Burnley of late.
Aston Villa are the visitors to Goodison Park this time out and the Villains have tended to start matches strongly of late, taking the lead in each of their last three games and scoring before the 10 minute mark in their last two games, despite failing to win in any of those three matches. Expect the visitors to make a strong start but the hosts to grow into the game on Merseyside.
Liverpool have returned to slightly better form of late, despite their draw with Newcastle United last weekend. The Reds have gone five games unbeaten in the Premier League to keep their diminishing hopes of a top four finish alive and they will be relying on Mohamed Salah to help them achieve that goal in the final weeks of the season.
The Egyptian forward opened the scoring in that draw with the Magpies last week to take his tally to 20 Premier League goals for the season and three in his last four in the league. Despite dropping only two points from a possible 15, United have kept just one clean sheet in their last five league games at Old Trafford so may struggle to contain the visitors’ star man here.
So how does the Karamba Battle work? Well, once you’ve opted in, you can head to the widget on the site – or just above on this very page, find the tournaments you want to compete in and simply click join to get started.
Then, place your bets as normal and providing they land within the parameters of the tournament – i.e. minimum stake, minimum odds and minimum bets placed, you will have the opportunity to rise up – or fall down – the leaderboard.
There are cash prizes to be won, as well as awards to be won for other specifics – such as the most successful accumulator bettor or the best at backing a particular market – and since the points you earn aren’t tied to your stake, you can compete for prizes without having to stake large amounts.
This weekend’s Squawka Battle centres around the Premier League but you can also place your Premier League bets like ours above in any of the Football Beat the Bot Tournaments for your chance to compete for the prizes.
