Free Premier League Predictions

Saturday 24th August

Norwich V Chelsea – Away Win

The Premier League’s top goalscorer, Norwich’s Teemu Pukki, comes up against Chelsea’s misfiring Tammy Abraham. On paper it looks like a mismatch. Fortunately for Chelsea, it shouldn’t come down to a straight shootout between the two.

Norwich followed up their decent second half at Anfield with a good win over Newcastle last weekend. While Chelsea have performed well at times in all their matches this season, but have failed to sustain it for 90 minutes. Tough one to call, this is, but I’m going for Chelsea to finally secure 3 points under Lampard.

Brighton V Southampton – Draw

Brighton have had an excellent start to the season, with 4 points from their opening two matches. The Saints on the other hand have zero points, but there were good signs in last weekend’s 2-1 home defeat to Liverpool.

Another tough one to call, but I’m going for honours even in this one.

Man Utd V Crystal Palace – Home Win

Easy call this one, Palace have had a woeful start to the season, and can’t see it get any better for them at Old Trafford this weekend. Let’s just hope we don’t need United to score a penalty for our home win predictions to come to fruition.

Sheffield Utd V Leicester – Draw

Another tough one to call at this early stage of the season. Leicester put in a brilliant second half away at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea last Sunday, and were unlucky to not leave with all 3 points.

On the same day, Sheffield United gained a good home win over Crystal Palace, and at this stage of the season with the feel good factor at Bramall Lane in full flow, it would be brave to back against the Blades.

Watford V West Ham – Draw

Could be a good day for a roll up of draws, as this is yet another one of those fixtures that is hard to call. Watford are bottom of the league table with zero points, but any team in the Premier League is hard to beat at home.

West Ham are not faring much better. They started with a home thrashing at the hands on Manchester City, before gaining a credible 1-1 draw away to Brighton at the Amex last Saturday.

Liverpool V Arsenal – Home Win

After all the draws so far in today’s football predictions, we are now going for a home win. Yes, Arsenal have had a good start to the season, but this is a real test for the Gunners. Will be interesting to see how this one turn out, and we will quickly find out whether the Gunners are the real deal or not.

That said, this is predicting, and we can only really predict a home win for this one.

Free Football Tips – Arsenal V Huddersfield

Football Betting Tips Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Can Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang add to his 10 Premier League goals against Huddersfield?

Unai Emery’s Arsenal side entertain Huddersfield at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, and this is the match that makes up our free football tips this weekend.

Arsenal are on a remarkable run at the moment, they are currently 20 matches unbeaten, and that looks set to continue against struggling Huddersfield. 

To the credit of the Yorkshire side, results did improve with 2 wins (over Wolves and Fulham) and a draw (with West Ham), but that mini revival came to an end with two defeats to Brighton and Bournemouth (both 2-1).

Arsenal though have the Premier League’s top goalscorer in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who is scoring a goal every 113 minutes. I can see a home fixture against Huddersfield being right up his street.

The Gunners are just 2/7 to win this match. Huddersfield are 12/1, and the draw is 5/1.

2/7 is a bit too short to back, so I’m going to back Arsenal on the Handicap. Arsenal -1 is 3/4, and with a -2 start, the Gunners are 19/10. I’m going to play it safe, and go with the -1 start.

Free Premier League Tips

Recommended Bet – 5 Points on Arsenal to beat Huddersfield at -1 Handicap, at 3/4 with Ladbrokes.

The free Premier League tips have taken a bit of a hit lately, with 3 losses from our last 4 tips. We are still over 30 points up so far this season, which is pretty good going. 

Backing the home team on the Handicap is more favourable from going for the away team. 

Other tips I considered for this weekend were Man City to win away at Chelsea. The only slight doubt I have on that one is the fact that Sergio Aguero is out injured.

That said, City will still probably win. 

Over 2.5 goals predictions – Dortmund head champions league 4 fold

over 2.5 goals Borussia Dortmund
Dortmund celebrate a goal in Saturday’s 2-1 win over Mainz

After last night’s winning treble (or trixie) bet on the Champions League, we turn our attentions to tonight’s fixtures, and there are plenty of matches that are of interest for our over 2.5 goals selections.

The matches I’m looking at are Dortmund V Brugge, PSG V Liverpool, Napoli v Crvena Zvezda, and PSV V Barcelona. I believe all 4 have a good chance of being over 2.5 goals. Maybe even over 3.5 goals.

The four matches in an over 2.5 goals accumulator pays just under 4/1 with Betfair, which isn’t the greatest of odds.

The important thing is winning though, and I believe at over 2.5 goals, we have a better chance. All four of the matches are kicking off at 8pm.

Over 2.5 Goals Predictions

– PSV V Barcelona
– Dortmund V Brugge
– PSG V Liverpool
– Napoli v Crvena Zvezda

If I was to go over 3.5 goals, I think I might leave PSG V Liverpool out, as there is the possibility that both sides might cancel each other out.

Also, a 2-1 result might be in the reckoning with this one.

A slight variation on the bet could be to go over 2.5 goals on PSG V Liverpool, and over 3.5 goals on the other three matches.

Doing this would boost your winnings.

With Dortmund and Napoli both at home, and the possibility of Barca scoring 4 anywhere.

They would be the 3 matches I would consider for an over 3.5 goals accumulator bet, or trixie.

Those three matches pays just over 11/1 on over 3.5 goals with Betfair.

I prefer the trixie bet on over 3.5 goals bets, as nearly all of the time, the odds on over 3.5 goals is above even money.

This way, if only two win, you are in profit.

over 3.5 goals predictions – Man City lead our Tuesday night Champions League treble

over 3.5 goals predictions

It’s the return of the Champions League tonight, and we are looking at having a small bet the over 3.5 goals market for a bit of interest.

Here are our over 3.5 goals predictions for the Champions League fixtures on Tuesday, 27th November. All three of the matches are 8pm kick offs.

– Lyon V Man City
– Hoffenheim v Shakhtar
– Bayern Munich v Benfica

This treble pays just under 10/1 on Betfair. If you apply Betfair’s acca edge, you will get 6.25/1. Using acca edge, you will get your money back as a free bet (in cash) if one leg of your accumulator lets you down.

Alternatively, you may want to put them in a Trixie bet (4 bets). That way, if two out of the three win, you will make a small profit.

We all know Man City are scoring for fun, and they may well be looking for a bit of revenge over Lyon after losing 2-1 at the home to the French side earlier in the campaign. Pep’s men are fresh from a 4-0 win over West Ham on Saturday.

I expect them to put out a strong team tonight, as avoiding defeat will ensure qualification as Champions, meaning they can rest players for the final group match.

Shakhtar are the whipping boys of Group F, having conceded 13 goals in their 4 matches so far. Hoffenheim matches can also involve a lot of goals. On Saturday they drew 3-3 away at Hertha, suggesting that goal scoring isn’t a problem.

It also looks like defensively the German side could be a bit open. Which is also a problem that fellow Germans, Bayern Munich seem to be suffering with lately.

Although Bayern Munich have been struggling this season, they’re recent Bundesliga results have been littered with goals. Their last two matches in Germany have been 3-3, and 3-2 defeat.

Man Utd crash our free football tips – again!

Jose Mourinho Sack Odds
Is time running out for Mourinho at Old Trafford?

Well, that’s the last time for the foreseeable future that we’ll be tipping Manchester United on this website. For the second time this season they have crashed our free football tips, this time by drawing 0-0 at home to Crystal Palace.

Our last loss was also suffered at the hands of Mourinho’s United. This was when they drew 1-1 at home to Wolves, all the way back in September. The last time I tipped them!

Never the less, we are still over 40 points up for the season. So hopefully next week we can get back to winning ways, and break the 50 points mark.

I’m always a bit sceptical about tipping in the immediate match after an international break, and so it proved today.

From reading the reports, and listening to the live updates during the match, it appears to have been another lack lustre performance from United. The sort that seem to have become all too frequent under the leadership of Jose Mourinho.

Moving onto our over 2.5 goals predictions, and that accumulator also went down today. I do believe we were a little unlucky though.

5 out of our 7 predictions won. Watford V Liverpool, West Ham V Man City, Tottenham V Chelsea, Mainz V Borussia Dortmund, and PSV V Heerenveen, all won. It was just Juventus V Spal (2-0), and PSG V Toulouse (1-0), that let us down.

I suppose PSG not having Neymar or Mbappe was never going to help, but you would imagine a front 3 of Cavani, Draxler and Di Maria, might have been sufficient and hungry enough to get the required 3 goals.

The other side to let us down, Juventus, only managed a 2-0 win over mid table Spal. Remarkably, the Grand Old Lady only had 45% of the possession. Very unlike the Italian champions.

Maybe next weekend we will look at a smaller over 2.5 goals accumulator. With 7 selections, there is always the chance that one or two teams will let you down. Maybe we need to start looking at 4 or 5 team accumulators.

I also did try out an over 3.5 goals trixie bet today. The beauty of that bet is that due to the fact that all odds are greater than even money, you only need 2 of the 3 bets to come in to make a small profit. While if all 3 bets come in, it will represent a nice profit.

Liverpool V Man City free betting tips

Arguably the biggest Premier League match of the season to date, and I’m struggling a bit to know what to expect today.

The main reason for my confusion is Liverpool, I just don’t know what to expect from them. Will we get the Klopp Liverpool of last season, and the one that destroyed PSG just a few weeks back? The quick out of the blocks, pressing high, and free scoring Liverpool.

Or will we get the slightly misfiring almost unrecognisable Liverpool that lost 1-0 in Naples on Wednesday night? This is the dilemma when it comes to tipping this match.

The bookies are struggling to separate these two as well. Both teams are 17/10 in the 90 minutes betting market with Betfair, with the draw at 13/5.

If you are expecting goals, Over 2.5 Goals is 7/10, with Over 3.5 Goals coming in at 7/4. If we get the Liverpool that played PSG, then I expect both of these bets to come in.

In First Goalscorer betting, it is a very open market. Depending on which bookmaker you are using, you can get 4/1 on both Aguero and Salah to score first, with Paddy Power and Betfair offering 5/1 on the Argentine.

Next in First Goalscorer betting is Gabriel Jesus, who is 6/1 with the same two bookies, as is Sadio Mane. Daniel Sturridge is a best price of 13/2 with 888Sport.

The Anytime Goalscorer betting market is also very competitive. Aguero and Salah are both 17/11 with Unibet and 88Sport, with Sturridge at 23/10, and Mane at 11/5, with the same two layers.

Another market to take into consideration if you fancy goals, is Both Teams To Score. At the moment the best odds here are 4/7 on Yes with Betfair, and 13/8 on No with Betvictor.

Personally, I am leaning to the thinking that this is a good time for City to be playing Liverpool. Although I wouldn’t be massively surprised to see Liverpool win (and I do believe all 3 outcomes are possible here), I do believe that City won’t lose today.

For this reason I am betting – tentatively – on the Double Chance market, and I am going on Man City/Draw, at 1/2.

Recommended Bet – 5 Points on Man City/Draw in the Double Chance market at 1/2 with Betway.

This season’s free tips results can be found here…

I’m banking on the tentative Liverpool that played Napoli turning up today. The Reds are three matches without a win, and I’m thinking that they might lack a bit of confidence today, and that City will notice that and punish Klopp’s men.

Mohamed Salah
Can Mo Salah recapture his form from last season?

Add to that the pressure – unfairly – being heaped upon Mo Salah, with idiotic remarks being made in the media about Klopp needing to drop him, and you can see why I’m leaning towards Liverpool not winning.

The Egyptian hasn’t scaled the heights of last season yet. If manages to do 80% of what he achieved in the last campaign, he will be doing well. I believe it will be almost impossible for him to repeat that success.

Football Betting Tips – 6/4 Lukaku to score anytime against Watford

Watford’s excellent start to the season continued when they defeated Spurs 2-1 in their last outing before the international break. That run will be tested to the maximum again today, when they host Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United side.

Unluckily for the Hornets, they will be facing United at a time where striker Romelu Lukaku is bang in form. The Belgian hit man has all of a sudden hit his straps.

Pre international break he scored a brace in the 2-0 away win at Burnley. He then followed this up with a goal away at Scotland in the friendly (only playing 45 mins), before firing another brace away at Iceland in the UEFA Nations League, last Tuesday. The big man is now in exceptional form.

In Anytime Goalscorer Betting, Lukaku is a massive looking 6/4 with Ladbrokes, Coral and Betvictor to score anytime today in the match today, and this looks like excellent value to me.

Recommended Bet – 10 Points Bet on 6/4 Lukaku to score anytime with Ladbrokes, Coral or Betvictor.Tipping Results so far this Season.

Romelu Lukaku

It’s been a funny start to the season for United. They were poor away at Brighton in the 3-2 defeat. They then played well against Spurs in the first half at Old Trafford, but ended up getting trounced 3-0, and their most recent result was the 2-0 win away at Burnley.

As for Watford, what can we say. Yes, 3 of their 4 wins have come at home, but they were against Brighton (2-0), Crystal Palace (2-1), and Tottenham (2-1), all pretty decent opposition. Their away win was a 3-1 victory at Turf Moor, over Burnley.

I don’t like making predictions on United given the up and down nature of their season to date, one minute all is going well, the next, it’s all doom and gloom and talk of the end of Mourinho. Given Lukaku’s form though, I think this bet represent’s good value today.

Cardiff V Arsenal Betting Tips – Nothing for the Bluebirds

It’s not been a great start to the season for both Cardiff, or Arsenal, with Neil Warnock’s Bluebirds not even registering a goal yet this season, and the Gunners having issues on and off the field, with Mesut Ozil’s illness, or whatever it was, last weekend.

Cardiff have so far lived up to expectations in the Premier League, they didn’t really sign anybody, and it was widely expected they would struggle, which they have.

So far this season Cardiff have 2 points from 3 fixtures, Bournemouth (lost 2-0), Newcastle (0-0), and Huddersfield (0-0), by far not the trickiest of opponents they’ll come up against in the Premier League this season.

The omens already don’t look too clever for Cardiff, especially when they face the likes of Man City and Liverpool, etc, later in the season. At this rate, relegation beckons for Warnock’s team.

For Arsenal, they’ve had a strange start to the season. They were well beaten at home by Man City (0-2) on the opening day, as you would expect. They then lost to Chelsea (3-2) in an improved performance, before beating West Ham 3-1 last weekend, while looking awful in defence.

Arsenal Players

Onto today’s fixture, and it’s hard to see anything in this match for Cardiff. The Gunners are odds on favourites, at 8/13 with Betway. The draw is 16/5, and Cardiff are 19/4.

If you believe the Gunners to be too short at 8/13, then my recommended bet would be for an Arsenal win and there to be Over 1.5 Goals, in the Match Result And Over/Under 1.5 Goals market, this bet is 5/6 with Betfair.

When Is Cardff V Arsenal Being Played, And Where Can I Watch It?

The match is being played at the Cardiff City Stadium, with kick off at 1.30pm. It is live on Sky Sports Premier League, with coverage starting at 12.30pm. Sky Sports Main Event picks up the coverage at 2pm, after the Auld Firm Derby finishes.

Man Utd V Spurs Betting Tips and Sign Up Offers

I’m reluctant to talk about the moaning one as all he does is create diversion tactics that the media seems to keep falling for. He has become a master of making the issue about him and what he says, rather than what’s happened on the pitch, so lets put that aside and look at the betting options on the match.

Man Utd V Spurs Betting Tips

With the unclear situation we are currently seeing at Old Trafford, it’s hard to know which Manchester United side is likely to turn up. I can see United winning tonight, but I couldn’t back them with too much confidence given their recent performance at Brighton.

Betway make United 6/4 favourites, Tottenham are 2/1, and the Draw is 23/10. On paper it’s a very close looking match.

Big matches tend to see the best players putting in a performance, so that could see some value in the Anytime Goalscorer markets, Harry Kane is 6/5 favourite to score anytime, while Romelu Lukaku is 7/4.

I’m not planning on going near the match betting tonight, for the reasons listed above. For a bit of interest I’m just going to have a couple of small correct score bets. I’m doing 2-0 to United at 10/1, 2-1 Spurs – also at tens, and I might have a couple of quid on a 1-1 draw in-play, when/if, the odds drift out a bit. At the moment it is too short at 5/1.
