Bournemouth vs Brighton betting preview and predictions
Bournemouth’s season went from bad to worse last Saturday when Cherries lost an important basement battle against Norwich. They have now played the previous 12 PL matches with a horrendous 1-1-10 W-D-L record. The problems lie in the attack.
The match against Norwich was the first in a row without one single goal scored. Bournemouth have amazingly hit blanks seven times in the previous nine matches scoring just two goals in the process. They do have Joshua King injured but there should be still goals produced through players like Calum Wilson or Ryan Fraser.
Brighton are still without a win in 2020. Seagulls played a disappointing home draw against Aston Villa last Saturday. Many expected Brighton to win but they also have problems with a weak attack. Seagulls created very little xG and there isn’t anyone really scoring goals in the entire team.
It’s true that Brighton have become more attacking-oriented and simply “try to play” more this season. This hasn’t really led to high-scoring matches, though. Brighton have played four U2.5 results in a row and six out of the previous seven matches have ended to an U2.5 result.
We have been tipping unders to previous Bournemouth matches with good results. This is not the time to stop, because there are still so good odds available in the market. It’s unlikely that Bournemouth would all of sudden start scoring in a match-up like this. Bet U2.5 at 1.93 odds widely available.
Crystal Palace vs Southampton betting preview and predictions
Crystal Palace stole an unlikely point at Manchester last Saturday. We had a tip on Palace +2.5 handicap, but very few expected them to avoid a loss entirely. Eagles snatched a precious point with a 90th-minute leveler. This was a continuation of Palace’s unbeaten run, which stretches to five matches. They have only lost one out of ten previous PL matches and even that loss was unlucky.
Many punters have avoided Palace bets lately due to injury issues. It’s true they’ve had a long list of players out, but these are mostly long-term issues. Palace XI has been virtually unchanged for weeks. Now they also have extra firepower in attack. Cenk Tosun, who joined from Everton, scored his opener against Man City at Saturday.
Southampton have been one of the most in-form teams in the Premier League. Saints had more than enough troubles in the early season, but results have finally started to follow. It was a real shocker to see the team throw away a two-goal cushion against Wolves on Saturday. Saints eventually lost the match 2-3 FT.
Despite this loss, Southampton have played the previous six PL matches with a fantastic 4-1-1 record. They have defeated lately even Tottenham and Leicester without any problems. Saints have been climbing up in standings recently and also earned their success.
There’s no doubt Southampton is a good team right now with in-form Danny Ings leading the line. Crystal Palace is still at least equally strong. Eagles have been above Southampton in standings all season. The betting market loves Saints way too much due to their recent form. Bet Crystal Palace DNB at 2.00 odds. Southampton should be clearly favorites here.
Sheffield United vs Manchester City betting preview and predictions
Sheffield United continued their excellent season last Saturday with an away draw against Arsenal. Blades were trailing 1-0 but climbed to a level score with a second-half goal. This 1-1 FT result was in no way surprising and we were also tipping U2.5 to this very match.
As we wrote last week already, Sheffield United defense has been rock solid all season. Only Liverpool have conceded fewer goals. Blades have been equally strong at home and away. They function exceptionally as a unit and fully deserve the results when looking at the xG scores.
Visitors Manchester City somehow lost two points against Crystal Palace. City were leading 2-1 but conceded a late goal. This was the third time this season when City wasted a 2-1/3-1 deserved win to a 2-2 draw. Not to even mention the 2-3 loss against Wolves in late December.
Despite this setback, City have a fine 8-1-1 W-D-L record from the previous 10 matches in all competitions. They have conceded just two times more than a single goal during this run. Aguero has also returned from an injury in fine form. It’s quite likely though, that Pep is giving him a rest and puts in Gabriel Jesus instead.
Sheffield United unders have been fantastic bets all season. You had won the U2.5 bet in 18 of 23 matches so far. If betting U3.0, you had lost the bet in just two matches. There’s no reason to expect this trend wouldn’t continue. The previous meeting ended 2-0 FT less than a month ago and now United have even the home support behind them.
Bet Asian line U3.0 goals at 1.89 odds widely available.
