Arsenal vs Sheffield United betting preview and predictions
Arsenal have shown some signs of life lately after they made changes in the managerial positions. Former Gunners midfielder Mikel Arteta took over in late December. Still, Arsenal have won just one out five PL matches under Arteta and look very low-scoring.
The club has been so dependant on Aubameyang’s goals this season. The main threat of Gunners has scored 48% of his team’s goals so far. To make matters worse, Aubameyang is suspended now and can’t face one of the toughest defenses in the league.
Sheffield United kept yet another clean sheet last Friday against West Ham. They were saved by VAR at injury time. Only Liverpool have conceded fewer clean sheets than this fantastic team.
Blades played the entire autumn without a loss at away soil until the inevitable happened against both Liverpool and Man City in late December. Even those matches ended just 2-0 and United gave a good fight against the PL giants.
Arsenal have scored just five goals in the previous six matches and just once more than one. They look very low-scoring and it’ll be a tough match against SUFC without the top striker. We have tipped Arsenal unders before and we tip again. Bet U2.5 goals at 1.90 odds.
Man City vs Crystal Palace betting preview and predictions
Man City have found a good form lately, but it has little impact on the title race. Liverpool just keeps on winning every match and makes the title race more and more obsolete. City will certainly have their full focus on UCL and FA Cup this spring.
City have been scoring at will lately with the help of Sergio Aguero, who has recently returned from an injury. ‘Kun’ Aguero scored a hattrick when City destroyed Aston Villa last Sunday. The whole team is in top shape right now.
Crystal Palace are in great shape as well. Eagles have been plagued by long-term injuries, but the XI is still in a good shape all things considered. Palace have lost just once in the previous nine league matches and conceded just once more than one goal.
Last week they held Arsenal to a 1-1 home draw, which was also one of our betting tips. They have already defeated Man Utd at away and held Arsenal twice to a draw. We all remember what happened last year: Palace defeated Man City 2-3 at Manchester.
City are surely big favorites here, but Palace odds are just too high. They haven’t lost City with over 2 goal difference in three previous meetings and +2.5 hcp should be enough again. Palace are so low-scoring team right now it’s unlikely City could break them to pieces and with a high margin.
Bet Crystal Palace +2.5 hcp at 2.05 odds.
Norwich vs Bournemouth betting preview and predictions
Norwich and Bournemouth are the two weakest PL teams at the moment, there is no doubt about that. Norwich have been one of the weakest all season. The canaries had a good spell early one when Pukki was scoring at will and they even defeated Man City at home.
The longer the season progresses, the worse it gets for Norwich. Their attack look paralyzed and even Pukki hasn’t been able to use those rare chances he gets. It doesn’t really help that the Finnish striker is a doubt in this game as well. If he’s missing, it’ll be tough for Norwich.
Bournemouth have lost the plot completely in the past few months. Cherries are in 1-1-9 W-D-L run in the Premier League. It’s almost absurd how poor they look. Last weekend they lost 0-3 at home to Watford and ruined our U2.5 tip with a 90+ min conceded goal.
The main reason behind Bournemouth’s slump lies in the attack. Cherries have scored just two goals in the previous eight matches. They have hit blanks amazingly six times in eight matches. It’s no reason they are losing every week.
This match has a really low goal expectancy and the reasons are explained above. The two weakest attacks in the Premier League, by far. Bet U2.5 goals at 2.05 odds.
