Burnley vs Newcastle match preview

Burnley have drawn 3, won 1 and lost 1 of their last 5 league games and Newcastle have drawn 4 and lost 1 of their last 5. The reverse fixture ended 3-1 to Newcastle, with 3 Newcastle corners, 4 Burnley corners, 2 Newcastle yellow cards and 3 Burnley yellow cards. 

Burnley are usually a side to be very careful about backing with goals, and whilst we still don’t think you should push the bet too much when it comes to goals here, it does look like a game that on current form could produce some goals. 90% of Newcastle games in the Premier League this season have gone over 1.5 goals and both teams have scored in the last 4 Burnley league games. Burnley have scored 2 goals in each of their last 2 league games against Everton and Southampton and Burnley have conceded an average of 2 goals per game in their last 5 league games. Whilst Newcastle game have often had a couple of goals it’s not always been them scoring the goals as they have scored in 63.33% of their league games this season and they have failed to score in 2 of the their last 4 league games, and it’s worth noting those games were against Brighton and West Brom who are both struggling, so that is a slight concern. Over 1.5 goals is the smart bet to take from goals though on current form it wouldn’t be a shock if both teams score, especially as Newcastle have scored in 8 of their last 11 league games, just with Newcastle’s goal scoring form in their last few games we can’t recommend that with confidence as you also have to remember the fact that Burnley are usually well drilled defensively. 

Nothing jumps off the page from the corners stats and Newcastle have taken 2 corners or less in 2 of their last 3 league games, so the recent form their isn’t encouraging. Burnley have been more consistent at a level of around 4/5 corners per game. We can’t say their won’t be corners but the stats are not strong enough for us to be confident of both teams having at least 3 or the match having 8/9 which are the minimum line bets for corners really so we will leave that angle here.

9 of the last 12 Burnley league games ended under 30 match booking points and 4 of the last 7 Newcastle league games also ended under 30 match booking points. The season stats don’t point to this being a booking fest either so we are happy to leave that angle as well. 

So the best bet in this game is over 1.5 goals though a case can also be made for backing both teams to score.

West Ham vs Leicester match preview

Both sides have lost 2, won 2 and drawn 1 of their last 5 league games. When the sides met earlier this season West Ham won 3-0 and that game saw 4 West Ham corners, 6 Leicester corners and 2 yellow cards for each team.

Goals look a good bet here as both teams have scored in 80% of their games this season. West Ham have scored in 12 of their last 14 league games and they scored an average of 1.78 goals per game in those last 14 games. Leicester have scored in 15 of their last 17 league games and they scored an average of 1.70 goals per game in those last 17 games. Neither side has been that great at the back in recent games either as Leicester have conceded in 6 of their last 7 league games, conceding an average of 1.28 goals per game in those last 7 games. West Ham have conceded in all of their last 3 league games and they conceded an average of 2 goals per game in those 3 games. It looks highly likely both teams score with over 2.5 goals also looking strong and over 1.5 goals incredibly likely.

Corners is a very tricky market here that we are going to leave. West Ham have taken just 7 corners in their last 3 league games and average 3.83 corners per game in their last 12 league games. Leicester have taken 2 corners or less in 5 of their last 9 league games. With 2 sides like this corners look likely as they both like to attack and use the wide channels, but the stats don’t back up that fact right now so we won’t be recommending a bet on corners. 

Leicester have been given at least 1 card in 90% of their games this year and West Ham have been given at least 1 in 83.33% of theirs. Leicester have been given at least 1 card in 8 of their last 9 league games and they average 1.44 yellow cards per game in those games. West Ham have been given at least 1 card in 8 of their last 10 league games and they average 1.90 yellow cards per game in those last 10 games. It looks highly likely both teams pick up a card here.

The best bets in this game revolve around goals with over 1.5 goals, over 2.5 goals and both teams to score all looking strong and 10+ booking points each team being a good add on to any of those bets.

Spurs vs Man United match preview

Spurs have won 3, drawn 1 and lost 1 of their last 5 league games and United have won 3 and drawn 2 of their last 5. Spurs beat United 6-1 in the reverse fixture and that game had 2 Man United corners, 4 Spurs corners, 2 Man United yellow cards, 1 Spurs yellow card and 1  United red card. 

Spurs have scored in 80% of their games this season and Man United in 76.66%. Spurs have scored in all of their last 7 league games and they scored an average of 2.14 goals per game in those last 7 games. Spurs have also conceded in 3 of their last 4 league games. United have scored in 7 of their last 9 league games and all of their last 3. In those last 9 games United average 2.33 goals per game, though that average is boosted heavily by the 9 they put past Southampton. United have been pretty solid at the back in recent games and have kept 4 clean sheets in their last 5 games, and its worth noting that 3 of those clean sheets came against Chelsea, Man City and High flying West Ham. With 2 sides like this that have soo much attacking talent its hard to back against goals, just we don’t think its smart to look at over 2.5 goals and would stick to both teams to score and over 1.5 goals as the safer options.

Spurs have only taken 3 or more corners in 70% of their league games this season  which for a side like them is pretty low. United have taken 4 or more corners in 11 of their last 12 league games and they average 5.50 corners per game in those last 12 games. We won’t be recommending a bet in corners as whilst United are consistent we don’t have faith in them covering a bet by themselves should Spurs fall below 3 corners which they have done on multiple occasions and Spurs have taken 2 corners or less in 6 of their last 12 league games which is a pretty big red flag.

Spurs have been given 2 yellow cards in each of their last 4 league games and the last 5 Spurs league games have all gone over 30 match booking points and have seen a total of 9 yellow cards for them, 12 yellow cards for their opponents and 1 red card for them. United have been given 9 yellow cards in their last 3 games and 9 of the last 10 United league games have gone over 30 match booking points. So it looks highly likely both teams pick up at least 1 card and possibly 2 each. The recent stats suggest a very high probability that game will go over 30 match booking points also.

The best bets in this game are over 1.5 goals and both teams to score and then 10+ booking points each team and 30+ match booking points. At bigger odds it may be worth looking at bets like 20+ booking points each team and potentially a red card in the game as Anthony Martial was sent off the last time these sides met and with spurs desperate for a win to keep stay in the hunt for the top 4 and Jose Mourinho seeing his former side come to town, there is plenty of extra spice which could potentially see the game boil over at times.

Sheffield United vs Arsenal match preview

Sheffield United have lost 4 and won 1 of their last 5 league games and Arsenal have won 2, drawn 2 and lost 1 of theirs. Arsenal won 2-1 when the sides met earlier this season and that game had 2 Arsenal corners, 4 Sheffield United corners and 1 Sheffield United yellow card.

Arsenal looked to have turned a corner before they put in possibly their worst performance of the season against Liverpool last time out. Sheffield United are playing for pride having been at the snookers required stage since Christmas. Arsenal have scored in 4 of their last 5 league games and they scored an average of 1.80 goals per game in those last 5 games. Arsenal have also conceded in all of their last 9 league games and they conceded an average if 1.65 goals per game in those last 9 games. Sheffield United have conceded 9 goals in their last 3 games and have failed to score in 5 of their last 7 league games. Any goal bet is going to revolve around Arsenal so the best bet here may well be Arsenal to score 2+ goals as they will surely be desperate to make a statement after the performance against Liverpool and putting in a lacklustre performance in the Europa League midweek.

Arsenal average just 3.83 corners per game in their last 6 league games and even though they will likely see that average rise in this game as they control possession and territory for long periods, they aren’t a team we want to be taking a short price about for a corners bet with their current form taken into account. Sheffield United have taken 2 corners or less in 2 of their last 4 league games so we won’t be recommending any corner bets in this one.

Sheffield United have been given an average of 2.25 yellow cards per game in their last 4 league games and have been given at least 1 card in 83.33% of their league games this campaign. Arsenal have been given exactly 1 yellow card in all of their last 5 league games. On current form and given the situation  they find themselves in it looks likely Sheffield United could pick up a couple of yellow cards here.

The best bets in this game are Arsenal to score 2+ goals and 20+ Sheffield United booking points.
