Southampton vs Burnley match preview

Southampton have lost 4 and won 1 of their last 5 league games and Burnley have drawn 3, won 1 and lost 1 of their last 5 league games. Southampton won the reverse fixture 1-0 in a game that had 8 Burnley corners, 2 Southampton corners and 1 Burnley yellow card. 

Southampton have scored in 68.96% of their league games played this season and have also conceded in 68.96% of their league games.

Burnley have scored in 51.72% of their league games and conceded in 68.96% of their league games. Burnley have scored in all of their last 3 league games and 6 of their last 8. Burnley have conceded in all of their last 4 league games and 9 of their last 11. 

Southampton have scored in all of their last 3 league games and 6 of their last 8. Southampton have conceded in 11 of their last 12 league games (the only clean sheet coming against Championship bound Sheffield United)  and they conceded an average of 2.66 goals per game in those games. 

Both teams have scored in 5 of the last 8 Southampton league games and all of the last 3 Burnley league games. So, on current form goals look a good bet. These aren’t two sides you normally see as the type to deliver goals, especially Burnley, but with both sides level on 33 points and 7 points clear of the drop zone, both should see this as a good opportunity to pick up 3 points and move 10 points clear of relegation. Also both sides will likely feel this is a game they should win and will play accordingly, so I don’t see this being a one sided affair to either side.

Both teams to score looks a good bet as does over 1.5 goals. These probably aren’t 2 sides to put too high a line on goals and whilst on current form over 2.5 goals wouldn’t be a surprise, we feel over 1.5 goals and both teams to score are the plays to be had here. 

Southampton have taken 3 or more corners in 86.20% of their league games this season and Burnley in 72.41%. Burnley have also given away at least 3 corners in 96.55% of their league games this season. Southampton have taken 3 or more corners in all of their last 12 league games and they average 4.91 corners per game in those last 12 games. Southampton have given away an average of 5 corners per game in their last 7 league games. Burnley have taken an average of 4.62 corners per game in their last 8 league games and in their last 19 league games have given away an average of 6.21 corners per game. So, Southampton look bankers to take at least 3 corners and on current form their also appears a strong chance that Burnley will as well. Though if you don’t want to risk the Burnley corners we feel 8/9+ match corners is also highly likely given the recent stats. 

Burnley have been given at least 1 card in 79.31% of their league games played this season and Southampton in 79.31% of their league games. Burnley have been given at least 1 card in 16 of their last 19 league games and they average 1.36 yellow cards per game in those games, but Burnley have now been given no cards in 2 of their last 4 league games and 3 of their last 7. You add this to the fact that Southampton have been given no cards in their last 2 league games and we feel there is enough reason to leave bookings in this game. It would be no surprise to see both teams pick up a card but the recent stats add enough doubt for us to sit this one out.

The possible bets in this game are

Over 1.5 goals

Both teams to score 

3+ corners each team

8/9+ match corners

Newcastle vs Spurs match preview

Newcastle have drawn 3 and lost 2 of their last 5 league games and Spurs have won 4 and drawn 1 of their last 5. It ended 1-1 when the sides met earlier in the season and the game had 10 spurs corners, 4 Newcastle corners , 1 Spurs yellow card and 4 Newcastle yellow cards. 

Newcastle have scored in 62.06% of their league games played this season and have conceded in 82.75%. Spurs have scored in 79.31% and have conceded in 65.51%. Spurs have scored in all of their last 6 league games and they scored an average of 2.16 goals per game in those games. 

Newcastle have score in 7 of their last 10 league games. Newcastle have conceded in 7 of their last 8 league games and they conceded an average of 1.75 goals per game in those games. 

Newcastle have conceded 2 or more goals in 8 of their last 12 league games and Spurs have scored 2 or more in 3 of their last 5 league games and they also scored an average of 2.4p goals per game in those last 5 games. We feel its highly likely that Spurs will score at least 2 goals and possibly more as they have scored 8 goals in their last 2 home games, putting 4 past Crystal Palace and 4 past Burnley. So there is good reason to look at Spurs scoring 2/3 goals minimum here. 

The corners don’t really offer us anything in this game as the season stats are uninspiring and recent result don’t suggest either team is going to change that much in the back of the season, so corners is not an angle we are going to bet on here. 

Spurs have been given at least 1 card in 82.75% of their league games this season and Spurs opponents have been given at least 1 card in 89.65%, with Spurs opponents averaging 2.20 yellow cards per game this season. Newcastle have been given at least 1 card in 86.20% of their league games this season and Newcastle average 1.72 yellow cars per game this season. 

Spurs have been given at least 1 card in 10 of their last 11 league games and they were given an average of 1.63 yellow cards per game in those last 11 games. Spurs opponents have been given at least 1 card in 15 of their last 16 league games and their opponents were given 2 cards or more in 12 of those 16 games. Newcastle have been given 2 or more cards in 18 of their 29 league games this season and have been given 2 or more cards in 3 of their last 5 league games. So, we feel it’s highly likely that both teams pick up at least 1 card, Newcastle most likely will pick up at least 2 cards and the game will have at least 3 players booked.

The possible bets on this game are

Spurs to score 2/3+ goals

10+ booking points each team

30+ match booking points

20+ Newcastle booking points

Aston Villa vs Fulham match preview

Villa have lost 2, drawn 2 and won 1 of their last 5 league games and Fulham have lost 3, drawn 1 and won 1 of their last 5 league games. 

Villa have scored in 75% of their league games this season  and have conceded in 53.57%. Fulham have scored in 53.33% of their league games and conceded in 70%. On current form we can’t back any goals market as Villa have failed to score in 3 of their last 4 league games and only score an average of 0.42 goals per game in their last 7 league games. Villa have also kept 6 clean sheets in their last 12 league games. Fulham have failed to score in 3 of their last 5 league games and have kept 3 clean sheets in their last 6 league games. Goals are too risky on current form so we won’t be backing them. 

Fulham have taken 3 or more corners in all of their last 11 league games and they have taken an average of 5.27 corners per game in those last 11 games. Vila have taken at least 3 corners in 7 of their last 9 league games and they have taken an average of 4.76 corners per game in those games. Fulham took 13 corners in their last game which gives their average a heavy boost. If playing corners 3+ corners each team looks the smart play as both teams are pretty consistent and with Fulham being at the do or die stage of their season they will surely look to get forward and will have chances to win corners. Villa have been one of the higher corner average teams this season and whilst that has dropped in recent games they still average 5.85 corners per game this season so should take at least 3 here. 

Fulham have been given at least 1 card in 90% of their league games this season and Villa in 78.57% of theirs. Fulham have been given at least 2 yellow cards in 3 of their last 4 league games. Fulham’s opponents have been given at least 1 card in 14 of their last 15 league games and their opponents were given an average of 1.46 yellow cards per game in those last 15 games. Villa have been given at least 1 card in 7 of their last 8 league games and they were given an average of 2.12 yellow cards per game in those games. Villa’s opponents have been given at least 1 card in 11 of their last 12 league games and they average 1.58 yellow cards per game in those last 12 games. So it looks very likely both teams pick up at least 1 card and the game will have at least 3. 

The possible bets on this game are

3+ corners each team

10+ booking points each team

30+ match booking points

Man United vs Brighton match preview

Man United have won 3 and drawn 2 of their last 5 league games and Brighton have won 2 and lost 3 of theirs. The reverse fixture finished 3-2 to Man United with 7 Brighton corners, 1 United corner, 4 Brighton yellow cards and 2 United yellows.

United have scored in 75.86% of their league games this season and conceded in 58.62%. Brighton have scored in 72.41% and conceded in 68.96%. United have scored an average of 2.37 goals per game in their last 8 league games, though that average is heavily boosted by the 9-0 thumping they gave to the Saints. United have kept 4 clean sheets in a row in the Premier League. Brighton have scored in 4 of their last 5 league games and conceded in 4 of their last 5 as well. The reverse fixture was a thriller and whilst United recent defensive record makes both teams to score and over 2.5 goals hard to fancy, we do feel over 1.5 goals is a pretty safe play as there should be at least 2 goals here.

Brighton average 6.90 corners per game in their last 10 league games and United average 5.54 corners per game in their last 11 league games. Brighton have taken 3 or more corners in 93.10% of their league games this season and United have taken 3 or more in 79.31% of their league games this season. So, on current form it looks highly likely both sides take at least 3 corners and the game could be pushing towards double figures. 

United have been given an average of 1.88 yellow card per game in their last 9 league games and they were given at least 1 card in 7 of those games. Bookings are impossible to back in this game as Brighton have been given no cards in any of their last 4 league games and United opponents have been given no cards in the last 2 United league games.

The possible bets in this game are

Over 1.5 goals

3+ corners each team

8/9+ match corners

10+ match corners
