Another matchday of the big European League is coming and with that the chance to make some money with sports betting. Today’s football predictions will be from one of the most beloved leagues around the world: the English Premier League.
With the help of specialist Kate Richardson, we brought to you three matches that are considered small in the competition. Don’t forget to check Kate’s profile here before looking at the tips.
West Ham - Burnley
West Ham will welcome Burnley for matchday 19 of the Premier League. At the London Stadium, the matches between both clubs are usually balanced, as there are 2 wins for each side in their last 4 games. The last game between these teams at this stadium was last year and the visitors were the better side, winning by 1-0.
The hosts will come to this match after winning by 1-0 in their visit to Stockport in the FA Cup, guaranteeing their place in the next round. In the Premier League, their last match was against Everton by 1-0, which was a very good result. Usually, manager David Moyes likes to have the ball and prepare organized attacks, so we believe it won’t be different against Burnley. Their highlights for this match are Benrahma and Yarmolenko, who are very fast and have an excellent transition from defense to offense.
On the other hand, the visitor’s last match was a 1-0 loss against Manchester United, being their 2nd defeat in their last 3 Premier League games. We believe that manager Sean Dyche must line up a more defensive strategy for this confrontation against West Ham. However, it may not be the best option as Burnley clearly have problems in the aerial game.
The most likely scenario is certainly a victory to West Ham United. The hosts are not only going through a good phase but also have better “weapons” when compared to their opponent to this matchday. Also, Burnley are going through a negative phase away from home, as they just won 1 of their last 8 games away from their stadium.
So, our prediction to the match is: West Ham to win.
Leeds United - Brighton & Hove Albion
Leeds United and Brighton & Hove Albion will face each other at Elland Road. In their last match played at this stadium, which was in 2017, the hosts were able to get a good 2-0 victory.
The home side will come to this match after a 3-0 defeat in the FA Cup to Crawley Town, a club from the third division of the English football. In their last Premier League game, they have also suffered a 3-0, but to Tottenham. For this match against Brighton, we believe manager Marcelo Bielsa will probably focus on maintaining the ball and organizing attacks through the wings. Their highlight for this confrontation is Raphinha, who is a very fast and strong player in offensive transition.
On the other hand, the visitors won their FA Cup match against Newport County in the penalties, qualifying to the next round. In the Premier League, their last match against Manchester City was a 1-0 loss, which is not so bad considering the defensive flaws that Brighton usually show. As they are playing against a more organized club with a superior squad, we believe manager Graham Potter will focus on exploring counterattacks. Their highlight is Neal Maupay, top scorer of Brighton with 6 goals so far.
What we expect for this confrontation is the home club dominating most of the match and creating more opportunities to score goals. Not only will they be playing at home, but also their squad has offensive quality. Another point is that the visitors don’t have many attacking weapons and usually show a lot of defensive problems.
Our prediction to the match is: Asian Handicap (-0.25) Leeds United.
Wolverhampton - West Bromwich
Our last England premier league prediction. Wolverhampton and West Bromwich face each other at the Molineux Stadium. There is no record of official confrontations between these two clubs in the last 3 years. Their last match was back in 2012 and the Baggies got the best after a 5-1 victory in the Wolves stadium.
The hosts will come for this match after a defeat by 2-1 against Everton, which means they don’t win a Premier League match for 5 games in a row. Manager Nuno Espirito Santo will probably keep things as usual, giving more importance to a style of game with constant transitions from defense to attack. The highlight will be the offensive trio with Pedro Neto, Fabio Silva and Patrick Cutrone.
The visitors also didn’t have such a good outcome on their last match, as they lost on penalties to Blackpool in the FA Cup. Apart from that, in their last Premier League match, they also suffered a heavy 4-0 defeat against Arsenal. However, we believe manager Sam Allardyce won’t change their tactical system, continuing focusing on fast plays through the wings. The top scorer of the Baggies is Callum Robinson with just 2 goals scored.
Taking a look at both squads, it is possible to notice a little favoritism to the Wolves, as they have better players and like to have the ball during the game. Apart from that, Wolverhampton are playing at home and will try to create more opportunities, while West Bromwich, who have some serious difficulties on finishing, will play on counterattacks.
Our prediction to the match is: Wolverhampton to win.
