BettingDiaryThere are 3 English Premier League matches taking place on Sunday and we take a look at them from a betting angle.

 

 

 

 

NEWCASTLE v ARSENAL

Newcastle are 16th on the log and are undefeated in their last 4 matches. Last time out they drew 1-1 away to Liverpool, the 4th successive match that has seen both teams find the back of the net. Over 2.5 goal backers would also have made profits in 4 of the last 5 Newcastle games.

Arsenal are 10th on the table, but have only won 1 of their last 5 fixtures. They went down 1-0 at home to Everton last time out, but their last away game was a 3-0 win over Sheffield United.

The Gunners beat Newcastle 3-0 at home in the reverse fixture earlier this season and last season they did the double over Newcastle and won this fixture 1-0.

Newcastle 29/10

Draw 11/4

Arsenal 19/20

Suggested Bet: Goals away team 3 or more at 27/10

Newcastle are leaking plenty of goals and looking at Arsenal’s recent away games, they have scored 3 times in 3 of the 4 matches.

 

MANCHESTER UNITED v LIVERPOOL

United are 2nd on the table, 10 points behind Manchester City going into the weekend. Their last game was a disappointing goalless draw away at Leeds and that draw broke a 5 match winning run. United games have tended to be in extremes this season as far as goals go with 3 of their last 10 reaching 4 goals or more, but at the same time 3 of them not having a goal in them.

Liverpool are 6th on the table, 4 points behind 4th placed Chelsea. They are unbeaten in their last 5 in the League, but are coming off 1-1 draws at home to Newcastle and away at Leeds.

These sides played to a goalless draw at Anfield earlier in the season and last season this match finished 1-1.

Manchester United 37/20

Draw 51/20

Liverpool 29/20

Suggested Bet: The draw at 51/20

I think this is going to be a tight game and recent history at old Trafford suggests a draw is a big runner when these teams meet.

TOTTENHAM v SHEFFIELD UNITED

Tottenham are 7th on the log and still have an outside chance of a Top 4 finish. They are coming off a 2-1 home win over Southampton and their last 4 games in the EPL have seen both teams find the net and over 2.5 goals scored.

Sheffield United are destined to finish last on the log, but they showed some fight when they beat Brighton 1-0 at home last time out and that broke a run of 5 successive defeats.

If you are looking for statistical trends in Sheffield United games, only 1 team has found the net in 9 out of their last 10 EPL matches, more often than not, of course, it has been their opponents.

Tottenham 3/10

Draw 9/2

Sheffield United 35/4

Suggested Bet: Over 3.5 goals at 16/10

This bet would have arrived in the last 2 head-to-head matches between the sides and I am expecting a carefree approach from Sheffield United which will hopefully see goals at both ends.
