English Premier League fans have live Monday football to look forward to and we take a look at both of the matches from a betting angle.
BURNLEY v CRYSTAL PALACE – Click here to bet
Burnley go into this round of matches 2nd from bottom on the table having only taken 2 points from their 7 opening matches. 1 of these points came last time out when they played to a goalless draw at Brighton, but their home record has been poor with 3 defeats in 3 starts and they are yet to score on home turf and have conceded 5 goals.
Crystal Palace go into this round of matches 8th on the log and have won 2 of their last 3 games including beating Leeds 4-1 at home last time out. Their last 2 home games have been a 2-0 defeat at Wolves and a 2-1 win at Fulham and overall their home record reads, played 4, won 2 and lost 2 with 5 goals scored and 8 conceded.
Crystal Palace 37/20
Suggested Bet: Crystal Palace win at 37/20
Burnley are really battling at the moment and I think Crystal Palace’s counter attacking style can see them to victory here.
Another bet I considered was under 2.5 goals which is a rare play in the English Premier League for me, but the bookies have seen me coming and the price is 11/20. My reasoning was that 5 of the last 6 meetings between these sides has delivered 2 goals or less.
WOLVES v SOUTHAMPTON – Click here to bet
Wolves are 9th on the table with 4 wins in their opening 8 matches. Their last start was a 1-0 away defeat at Leicester and prior to that they had beaten Palace at home and drew at home 1-1 with Newcastle. Their matches have been the lowest scoring in the EPL averaging just 2.1 goals each with only 2 of the 8 matches reaching 3 goals or more.
Southampton have had a great start to the season and they currently sit 4th on the log and have won 5 and drawn 1 of their last 6 starts. Last time out they beat Newcastle 2-0 at home and their last 3 away matches have been a 4-3 win over Villa, a 3-3 draw at Chelsea and a 1-0 win at Burnley. Southampton games have averaged 3.5 goals each this season with under 2.5 goals arriving on 5 occasions.
Suggested Bet: Correct score 1-1 at 19/4
I was looking at under 2.5 goals, but that is quite short at 13/20 and I will go for a more speculative play on the exact score margin.
