Saturday Premier League Betting Tips: Newcastle to take a big step towards safety?
Odds and preview for top-flight action
After a midweek Champions League thriller, we could be in for a domestic goal-fest between Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur today.
We’ve got a full preview ahead of a huge early kick-off at the Etihad Stadium, with odds for all of today’s other games right here…
Huddersfield Town v Watford (Saturday, 3:00pm)
Huddersfield could be in for another miserable afternoon up against a buzzing Hornets outfit.
Despite going down to 10 men early on, Watford arguably looked the better side in Monday’s loss to Arsenal. They’re 5/6 to take the points here. Having dispatched the Terriers 3-0 in October, Javi Gracia’s side are also 11/5 on the +1 Handicap.
With Troy Deeney suspended, Gerard Deulofeu could be the one to watch. Our traders have him at 9/5 to net anytime.
West Ham United v Leicester City (Saturday, 3:00pm)
Leicester currently sit seventh, but 10th-placed West Ham could haul themselves into contention to be the best of the rest with a win here.
Jamie Vardy has six in six since Brendan Rodgers arrived at Leicester. The former England man is evens to notch again.
Bournemouth v Fulham (Saturday, 3:00pm)
After a mini-blip, Bournemouth thrashed Brighton 5-0 last weekend, which could be ominous for already-relegated Fulham.
We’ve got the hosts at 4/6 here, while there’s 12/1 about a repeat of their 3-0 win at Craven Cottage.
The Cherries will want to get Ryan Fraser and Callum Wilson into areas where they can combine as often as possible. They’ve linked up for 11 top-flight goals this term. Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton’s 1994-95 13-goal Premier League record (in a 24-team division) is in their sights now.
Wolves v Brighton & Hove Albion (Saturday, 3:00pm)
Wolves have stalled since being knocked out of the cup, but Brighton could be the ideal opponents for them right now. The Seagulls have failed to win or score in their previous five outings.
Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota are the danger men for the hosts. They’re 7/5 and 15/8 respectively to get on the scoresheet.
Newcastle United v Southampton (Saturday, 5:30pm – BT Sport 1)
A win for either side here would see almost certainly secure safety. But Newcastle have only lost one of their last five games at home. And Southampton haven’t won at St. James’ Park since 1997. The hosts are narrow 29/20 favourites.
Rafa Benitez’s side ran out comfortable 3-0 winners in this fixture last term. We go 14/5 for another home win to nil.
