Premier League Betting Tips: Tottenham to tighten grip on top-four spot?

Drew Goodsell | 9 March 2019

Preview and tips ahead of this weekend’s Premier League ties

We’re at the business end of the Premier League campaign, and there’s still plenty to play for at both ends of the table.

There’s a full preview with the key odds on the late game at the Etihad, where Manchester City host Watford.

But we’ve got six games to look forward to before that, starting with the M23 Derby at Selhurst Park.

Crystal Palace v Brighton and Hove Albion

Palace and Brighton come into this one with added pressure to pick up all three points, with both sides sitting just above the drop zone.

Roy Hodgson’s side are hot favourites, priced at 5/6 to bag all three points. Brighton are underdogs, but the ‘M23 Derby’ may get them fired up to pull out an unfancied win. They’re 18/5 to down the Eagles.

The Seagulls won the first encounter 3-1 at the AMEX Stadium. Think they’ll pull another performance like that out of the bag? That’s 45/1.

Michy Batshuayi and Wilfried Zaha are forming a formidable partnership up top for the Eagles. They’re both 4/1 favourites to open the scoring, with Batshuayi 9/5 anytime and Zaha a shade out at 15/8.

Glenn Murray could add to his 10 league goals against his former side. He’s 9/2 to score first, or 2/1 anytime.

Cardiff City v West Ham United

Three defeats in a row surprisingly doesn’t put Cardiff as the least in-form side in the league, but they’ll need a win in this one if they’re to escape relegation.

They’re outsiders at 23/10, but West Ham’s inconsistency could play into the Bluebirds’ hands.

We’ve got the Hammers to win at 23/20. A draw is priced at 12/5.

West Ham beat Cardiff 3-1 at the London Stadium in December, with Lucas Perez bagging a brace. The Spaniard is 12/1 to bag a brace again in South Wales.

Bobby Reid has bagged a few big goals recently, and they’ll need him firing on all cylinders if they’re to beat the Hammers here. He’s 11/2 to break the deadlock, or 11/5 anytime.

Huddersfield Town v AFC Bournemouth

It’s looking bleak for Huddersfield and new boss Jan Siewert at the bottom of the league. With only three wins all season, they’re 12/5 to pick up three vital points here.

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe will be disappointed with his sides’ inconsistency in the league. They thumped Chelsea in January before losing to Cardiff the following matchweek. They’re favourites to win here at 5/4.

Bournemouth’s top scorer this season Callum Wilson is expected to be back for this one, and they’ve missed his firepower up front.

He scored in the 2-1 victory over Huddersfield earlier this campaign, and he’s 13/8 to notch again here. Fancy him to bag a brace on his return? That’s 9/1.

Steve Mounie netted Huddersfield’s last goal in a shock 1-0 over Wolves in February. He’s their most threatening outlet, and he’s 14/5 to score anytime.

Leicester City v Fulham

With both sides under new management, it’s no easy job knowing what to expect from the pair.

Fulham showed a fighting spirit rarely seen in a narrow 2-1 loss to West London rivals Chelsea, with Leicester showing glimpses of what’s to come under Brendan Rodgers in their 2-1 loss to Watford.

The Foxes are favourites for the three points with our traders at 6/10, but there’s no time like now for Fulham to begin their great escape. It’s 9/2 that the Cottagers bag three points.

The pair played out a 1-1 draw at Craven Cottage in December. A draw is 3/1, with a repeat 1-1 scoreline out at 7/1.

James Maddison scored for Leicester at the Cottage in December, and could find himself profiting from Rodgers’ attacking style. He’s 11/2 to score first or 2/1 anytime.

Fulham need goals and if they come, they’re likely to come from Aleksandar Mitrovic. He’s 7/4 anytime.

Newcastle United v Everton

Rafa Benitez has managed to get his side to perform when it’s least expected this season.  Everton haven’t been consistent on the road this season, only winning four of the 14 they’ve played away from Goodison Park.

The signing of Miguel Almiron has sparked life into Newcastle, and while they’re slight underdogs at 7/4, they can’t be discounted.

Marco Silva’s Everton are 17/10 favourites, but with only one win in their last five league matches, they could struggle at St James’ Park.

The earlier fixture ended in a draw, and if you think lightning will strike twice, that’s 2/1.

Salomon Rondon is the Magpies most likely outlet, and he’s 7/2 favourite to score first for the Toon. He’s 17/10 to score anytime.

Gylfi Sigurdsson has found his shooting boots recently, bagging a brace against Cardiff. Think he’ll notch in this one? That’s 21/10. Fancy him to bag at least another brace? That’s 14/1.

Southampton v Tottenham Hotspur

The Saints lost out by the finest of margins against Manchester United last time, but with key players missing in that tie, they’d not likely to be too disheartened by their performance.

Spurs are likely to still be bouncing from their Champions League last-16 demolition of Borussia Dortmund, but they’ll need to refocus and be on top of their game.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are 17/20 favourites for the three points, with Southampton out as 3/1 underdogs.

Harry Kane has bagged in three of the four games since his return from an injury. He’s still gunning for the Golden Boot, so he’ll want a goal at St Mary’s. He’s 3/1 to open the scoring, or 21/20 to score anytime.

If Kane isn’t scoring, Son Heung-min usually picks up the slack. He’s 7/5 to score anytime.

Charlie Austin grabbed a consolation goal against Spurs in December. He’s 11/5 anytime.
