Leeds vs Spurs match preview

Leeds will be disappointed that their unbeaten run was ended by Brighton last time out after they managed to go unbeaten against Chelsea, Man City, Liverpool and Man United all in their recent 6 game unbeaten run. Spurs have won 6 of their last 10 league games but are still 5 points off the Champions league places. 

Spurs have scored in all their last 11 league games and they scored an average of 2.18 goals per game in those games. Spurs have conceded in 4 of their last 5 league games and they conceded an average of 1.60 goals per game in those games. Leeds have now failed to score in 5 of their last 9 league games but on the season as a whole they have been pretty consistent and have scored an average of 1.47 goals per game this season. Leeds have conceded in 5 of their last 6 league games. 

Goals look a good bet as Spurs need a win and Leeds games are usually open and attacking. Over 1.5 goals is very strong with both teams to score and over 2.5 goals also looking good.

Leeds average 5.92 corners per game in their last 14 league games and Spurs average 5.33 corners per game in their last 6 league games. It’s highly likely both teams take at least 3/4 corners and the match will be pushing towards double figures

Spurs have been given at least 1 card in 15 of their last 16 league games and they were given an average of 1.56 yellow cards per game. Leeds have been given at least 1 card in all of their last 12 league games and they average 1.83 yellow cards per game in those games. Its highly likely both teams pick up at least 1 cars and the game has 30+ match booking points.

The best bets in this game are

Over 1.5 goals

Both teams to score

3/4+ corners each team

9+ match corners

10+ booking points each team

30+ match booking points

Sheffield United vs Crystal Palace match preview

Palace have lost their last 3 and Sheffield United’s season has been one long disappointment. 

We can keep this write up short as this game really doesn’t appeal from a betting angle at all. We have a massively inconsistent side in Palace and Sheffield United are on their way back down to the Championship.

There is no standout bet in this game.

Man City vs Chelsea match preview

A great game in prospect and an early teaser for what will be the Champions League final in just a few weeks’ time.

City have Scored an average of 2.50 goals per game in their last 6 league games and  they have conceded in 6 of their last 9 league games. Chelsea have scored an average of 1.80 goals per game in their last 5 league games and have kept 7 clean sheets in their last 9 league games. 

These two sides are very good defensively but with so much attacking talent on show it’s tough to back against goals. Its highly likely that both teams will score, especially as they would both love to send a message before they meet in the Champions League final. 

Chelsea have taken just 3 corners in their last 3 league games and the surprising fact is that those 3 games were against West Ham, Brighton and Fulham, who are all teams that Chelsea should dominate possession and territory against. City are usually reliable for corners and it’s a game that should produce enough corners to cover a bet. We wouldn’t back both sides in  corners bet but total match corners we feel it’s likely that the game has at least 8/9 corners and could go into double figures. 

City average just 1 yellow card per game in their last 8 league games and Chelsea only average 0.83 yellow cards per game in their last 12 league games. It would be no surprise to see both teams pick up a card each, but the stats suggest this isn’t a game that will produce a lot of cards. 

The best bets in this game are

Over 1.5 goals 

Both teams to score

8/9 + match corners

A goal in each half and 3/4+ corners in each half

Liverpool vs Southampton match preview

Southampton have lost 12 of their last 16 league games and they have conceded an average of 2.50 goals per game in their last 16 league games. Liverpool are now unbeaten in 5 but have drawn their last 2. Liverpool have scored an average of 1.60 goals per game in their last 5 league games.

Southampton have been shocking defensively and Liverpool seem to be recovering from their major wobble they suffered recently. This looks a good game for Liverpool to rediscover their scoring form and we feel there is a good chance they score 2/3 or more goals against a very bad Southampton defence.

Liverpool average 6.10 corners per game in their last 10 league games and despite taking no corners in their last league games, Southampton average 5.37 corners per game in their last 8 league games. Total match corners is probably the smart play here as Liverpool will control possession and territory for long periods which could see Southampton take a lower number of corners than they have done recently. It’s highly likely the game has 8/9+ match corners.

Southampton average 0.50 yellow cards per game in their last 6 league games and Liverpool only average 1.12 yellow cards per game in their last 8 league games. So it doesn’t look like a game for cards.

The best bets in this game are

Liverpool to score 3+ goals

8/9+ match corners
