Chelsea vs West Brom match preview

Chelsea have drawn 3 and won 2 of their last 5 league games and West Brom have lost 2, drawn 2 and won 1 of their last 5 league games. The reverse fixture ended 3-3 in a game that had 3 West Brom corners, 9 Chelsea corners, 1 West Brom yellow card and 3 Chelsea yellow cards. 

Chelsea are now unbeaten in their last 10 league games, winning 6 of them and drawing 4. Chelsea have scored in 7 of their last 9 league games and have kept 8 clean sheets in their last 10 league games. West Brom have failed to score in their last 3 league games and they have now failed to score in 9 of their last 16 league games. West Brom have kept 3 clean sheets in their last 5 league games.

We wouldn’t back any goals market in this game but feel the simple bet of Chelsea to win is a clear pick. Given Chelsea’s defensive record and West Broms scoring form we feel there is a good chance Chelsea will win to nil.

Chelsea average 6.93 corners per game in their last 15 league games and have given away an average of 3.40 corners per game in their last 10 league games. West Brom average 2.94 corners per game in their last 17 league games and have given away an average of 6.58 corners per game in those games. The clear bet on corners is Chelsea to take the most which looks incredibly likely as there is a good chance that they will take at least 5/6 corners.

West Brom have been given no cards in 2 of their last 4 league games and Chelsea have been given no cards in all of their last 3 league games. So, on current form we won’t back cards in this game. 

The possible bets on this game are

Chelsea to win

Chelsea to take the most corners

Chelsea to take 5/6 corners

Leeds vs Sheffield United match preview

Leeds have won 2, lost 2 and drawn 1 of their last 5 league games and Sheffield United have lost 4 and win 1 of their last 5 league games. Leeds won 1-0 when the sides met earlier in the season and the game had 5 Sheffield United corners, 7 Leeds corners, 2 Sheffield United yellow cards and 1 Leeds yellow card. 

Sheffield United have failed to score in 5 of their last 6 league games and have conceded in 10 of their last 11 league games, conceding an average of 1.90 goals per game on those last 11 games. Leeds have failed to score in 3 of their last 4 league games and have kept 2 clean sheets in their last 5 league games. On current form we can’t back any goals market in this game. 

Leeds average 6 corners per game in their last 9 league games and have given away an average of 7.25 corners per game in their last 4 league games. Sheffield United have taken 2 corners or less in 5 of their last 10 league games so don’t look like a side to rely on to take 3 corners. Sheffield United have given away an average of 6.20 corners per game in their last 10 league games. The last 4 Leeds league games average over 14 corners per game and Sheffield United have had some corner spikes in recent games against West Brom and West Ham where they had 9 and 7 corners in each game respectively. 

So it would be no surprise to see a game with a high number of corners. The potential corner bets would be Leeds to take the most corners and then some bigger odds bets on selections like 5+ corners each team and then total match corners we feel this game could end up with at least 12/13 corners if both sides are in a good day. 

Sheffield United have been given at least 1 card in 19 of their last 20 league games and they average 2.20 yellow cards per game in those last 20 games. Leeds have been given 1 or more card in all of their last 7 league games and they were given an average of 1.85 yellow cards per game in those last 7 games. It would be no surprise to see both teams pick up a a couple of cards here and it looks extremely likely that both sides will pick up at least 1 and the game will have at least 3 cards. 

The possible bets on this game are

Leeds most corners

4/5 corners each team

10+ match corners (you could take this line higher if you wish as the stats suggest there is a chance this game could see allot of corners)

10+ booking points each team

30+ match booking points

20+ booking points each team

Leicester vs Man City match preview

Leicester have won 3,lost 1 and drawn 1 of their last 5 league games and City have won 4 and lost 1 of their last 5 league games. Leicester beat City 5-2in the reverse fixture in a a game with 3 corners for each team, 1 City yellow card and 3 Leicester yellow cards. 

City have scored in 18 of their last 19 league games and they scored an average of 2.47 goals per game in those last 19 games. City have now conceded in 4 of their last 5 league games and they conceded an average of 1.20 goals per game in those last 5 games. Leicester have scored in all of their last 6 league games and they scored an average of 2.33 goals per game in those games. Leicester have conceded in 5 of their last 6 league games and they conceded an average of 1.16 goals per game in those games.

Both teams to score looks a good bet with both teams scoring allot of goals lately and both sides have been conceding in recent games. So over 1.5 and over 2.5 goals both look good bets and there looks a very high chance that both teams will score.

Leicester average 4.87 corners per game in their last 8 league games but they have finished with exactly 2 corners in 4 of those games. So we don’t think its wise to go 3+ corners each team as City will likely control possession and territory for long periods so it would be no surprise if Leicester again ended on 2 corners as they find their chances to get corners limited. City average 6.63 corners per game this season so we feel the play on corners is 8/9 total match corners which looks highly likely. 

City have been given no cards in 3 of their last 4 league games and whilst Leicester are consistent with cards and usually pick up 1 or 2 we wouldn’t want to rely on them to do the majority if the work with a cards bet should City not pick up any cards.

The possible bets in this game are

Over 1.5 goals

Over 2.5 goals

Both teams to score

8/9 total match corners

Arsenal vs Liverpool match preview

Arsenal have drawn 2, won 2 and lost 1 of their last 5 league games and Liverpool have won 2 and lost 3 of their last 5 league games. The reverse fixture ended 3-1 to Liverpool with 3 Arsenal corners,7 Liverpool corners and 2 yellow cards for each team.

Arsenal have scored 9 goals in their last 4 league games and have conceded in all of their last 8 league games and they conceded and average if 1.5 goals per game in those last 8 games. Liverpool have failed to score in 3 of their last 5 league games and have conceded in 9 of their last 11 league games, conceding an average of 1.36 goals per game in those last 11 games. Despite Liverpool struggling for goals recently we still feel both teams to score is a good bet here. Arsenal have been hopeless at the back in recent games and coming back after the international break we feel Liverpool may be refreshed and ready to get back to the form that saw them win the league last season. So both teams to score and over 1.5 goals are both good bets here that have great chances.

Liverpool average 6.93 corners per game in their last 15 league games and Arsenal average 5.65 corners per game in their last 20 league games. So both teams are consistent on corners and we feel there is a very good chance that both teams take at least 3 corners and the game could be pushing towards double figures. 

Liverpool have been given at least 1 card in 11 of their last 14 league games and they were given an average of 1.57 yellow cards per game in those 14 games. Arsenal have been given at least 1 card in 17 of their last 20 league games and they were given an average if 1.45 yellow cards per game in those 20 games. Arsenal’s opponents have been given at least 1 card in all of their last 10 league games and they were given an average of 2.20 yellow cards per game in those games. So it looks highly likely that both sides will pick up at least 1 card and the game will have at least 3 cards.

The possible bets in this games are

Over 1.5 goals

Both teams to score

3+ corners each team

8/9+ match corners

10+ booking points each team 

30+ match booking points
