Midweek Premier League – oh how sweet it is! We’re back with another tips piece to help our punters bet smarter than ever.
Ten games across Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday sees ten matches that give us the chance to turn some cash into serious profit.
With three bets lined up across the gameweek, it could indeed be one of the biggest matchweeks so far this season!
Wolves v Burnley
Blink and you’ll miss it, Wolves are in sixth place after a third of the season, and after a 0-0-3 start with a new manager at that, you can say we’re a little surprised.
But when you look into it, it may not be as surprising as it seems on paper.
Only the top three teams have conceded more goals than Wolves, making them a force to be reckoned with.
However, only three teams have scored less than Wolves.
They’ve been pretty uncompromising in their surge into the top six, but Wolves fans won’t care!
Their increase in form correlates to Raul Jiminez breaking his duck after serious injury and getting back in the goals, as well as their goalkeeper Jose Sa proving to be one of the acquisitions of the season.
Burnley are stuck in the relegation zone and have been for most of the season, and despite having a few extra days break here since their postponed match against Tottenham, will lack class and should be beaten by one of the in form teams in the league.
Selection: Wolves to beat Burnley @ 1.85
West Ham United v Brighton
Brighton are winless in five, the wheels have truly fallen off.
While sitting in ninth place, they do need to be careful to not get dragged into the relegation scrap that exists with clubs such as Leeds, Watford and Southampton.
A 0-0 draw against Leeds at home on the weekend was not the most ideal result, especially after missing a few key chances, but their struggles will be challenged once again this weekend as they face West Ham at the Olympic Stadium.
While West Ham are winless in their last two, you still feel they’re the real deal.
They won’t win the league, but they’ll be around the European places for the whole season – dispatching of an out of form Brighton at home should confirm this.
Their two recent losses have come at Wolves and at Manchester City, and have both been narrow.
They were in the game for all 90 minutes at the Etihad, and did have enough chances to grab something out of the game.
We won’t look too much into this, and we expect the better team to get the result here.
Selection: West Ham to beat Brighton @ 1.90
Newcastle v Norwich
This might be a risky one, but we’re backing Newcastle to finally record their first win of the season in Matchweek 14 as they host Norwich at home.
It’s not the most glamourous fixture, we know, as the two bottom sides battle it out in a real six pointer, but we’re going to bank on Eddie Howe finding his groove finally at the helm, and at home at St. James’ Park.
Norwich are unbeaten in three, but we should not forget about their start to the season which did last 10 games, which did indeed make you question how many points the side were actually going to get.
This could potentially be do-or-die for the newly owned Newcastle – I’ll be banking on the home crowd willing them over the line here.
