EPL Week 12 Predictions
Wolves vs Tottenham – Molineux
Tottenham will be looking to get back to winning ways, as they travel to Wolves. For Gary O’Neill’s hosts, a lack of consistency has blighted them this season and their late loss at Sheffield United last weekend will particularly frustrate all connected with the club. Tottenham meanwhile capitulated at the hands of Chelsea last Monday, losing 2 players to injury and two more to red cards in a 4-1 defeat. They will need to show more composure here and should be able to in order to see off the decent Wolves threat.
Betting tip: Tottenham to win the match ($2.20)
Tottenham to win 2-1
Arsenal vs Burnley – Emirates Stadium
Arsenal will be looking to get back to winning ways in the Premier League, as they entertain struggling Burnley. The Gunners were undone by Newcastle last weekend, in a VAR riddled contest and they will be hoping to rediscover some momentum here. Burnley meanwhile are finding life in the Premier League rather tough currently, with just 4 points on the board from 11 games played and Vincent Kompany needs some divine inspiration currently. This won’t be the game though, with Arsenal ready to run out comfy winners.
Betting tip: Arsenal to win the match ($1.20)
Arsenal to win 3-0
Crystal Palace vs Everton – Selhurst Park
Crystal Palace ($2.50)
Two sides targeting a top half finish come the end of the season face off, as Crystal Palace welcome Everton. The Eagles are moving steadily under Roy Hodgson, without pulling up too many trees and they will be hopeful that they can start to build some momentum ahead of the festive period. Everton meanwhile are improving under Sean Dyche and as long as they are not in relegation trouble, that will be their key objective achieved this year. Palace are strong at home though and should win here.
Betting tip: Crystal Palace to win the match ($2.50)
Crystal Palace to win 2-1
Manchester United vs Luton Town – Old Trafford
Manchester United ($1.33)
Luton Town ($9.50)
Manchester United will be looking to get over even more European heartbreak, as they take on Luton Town. The Red Devils fell apart in Copenhagen in midweek, leaving their Champions League campaign in tatters and they will be hoping to return to form in the Premier League. Luton meanwhile dug deep to pick up a point against Liverpool last time out and should relish this challenge here. This won’t be as one-sided as the odds suggest but Manchester United should win this one.
Betting tip: Manchester United to win the match ($1.33)
Manchester United to win 2-0
Bournemouth vs Newcastle United – Vitality Stadium
Newcastle United ($1.73)
Eddie Howe brings his Newcastle United side back to his old stomping ground, as they take on Bournemouth. The Cherries have just one win to their name this term and they were roundly thumped by Manchester City last weekend, losing 6-1. Newcastle meanwhile are in the mix for a top 4 spot this term, despite a shed load of injuries and they will be eager to keep pace with the sides above them here. This will be tight, but Toon should get the job done on the south coast.
Betting tip: Newcastle United to win the match ($1.73)
Newcastle United to win 2-1
Liverpool vs Brentford – Anfield
Liverpool will be looking to overcome their own European heartache, as they take on Brentford at Anfield. The reds came up short against Toulouse in midweek and following a draw at Luton last Sunday, they will need to show a response to their fans here. Brentford meanwhile are on the up again, following three straight wins and they will be arriving at Liverpool full of confidence. This will be a good watch, with Liverpool surely too strong for the Bees.
Betting tip: Liverpool to win the match ($1.40)
Liverpool to win 3-1
Aston Villa vs Fulham – Villa Park
Aston Villa ($1.62)
Aston Villa welcome Fulham to Villa Park, in what should be a very watchable game on Sunday. Villa were poor in defeat at Nottingham Forest last weekend but bounced back in midweek with a solid win over Dutch side AZ Alkmaar. Fulham meanwhile continue to pluck away in the Premier League and were seconds away from holding Manchester United to a point last weekend. Villa should come out on top here but fatigue from the Europa Conference League could play a toll.
Betting tip: Aston Villa to win the match ($1.62)
Aston Villa to win 2-1
West Ham United vs Nottingham Forest – London Olympic Stadium
West Ham United ($1.91)
Nottingham Forest ($4.35)
West Ham will be looking to get back to winning ways in the Premier League, as they take on Nottingham Forest. David Moyes’s Hammers have enjoyed a mixed start to the season but remain firmly in the top half mix and ready to challenge the big boys above them. Nottingham Forest meanwhile performed brilliantly to beat Aston Villa last weekend and they will be eager for a repeat showing here. This is a tough one to call but perhaps home advantage will be key for the Hammers.
Betting tip: West Ham United to win the match ($1.91)
West Ham United to win 2-1
Brighton vs Sheffield United – AMEX Stadium
Sheffield United ($13)
Brighton take on Sheffield United, as they look to climb down from their superb win over Ajax in the Europa League in midweek. The Seagulls are one of the toughest teams in the division to play against currently and are dreaming of European football again next term. Sheffield United meanwhile picked up their first win of the season last weekend, over Wolves, and should arrive on the south coast with little to fear. However, Brighton are a good side, and they should be too strong for the Blades in this one.
Betting tip: Brighton to win the match ($1.27)
Brighton to win 3-0
Chelsea vs Manchester City – Stamford Bridge
Manchester City ($1.82)
Chelsea take on Manchester City in a seismic Super Sunday clash. Chelsea picked up yet another big result against a top side, thrashing Tottenham 4-1 last Monday and to go with their draws with Liverpool and Arsenal, they have performed well against the big teams. City meanwhile will arrive in West London full of confidence, having won their last 6 games in all competitions and how they would love to make it 7. This will be a tight one though, with a draw the most likely outcome.
Betting tip: The match to finish as a draw ($3.90)
