Sunday’s Premier League Betting Tips and Previews
Huddersfield v Man City – Sun 20th Jan, 13:30, John Smith’s Stadium
Referee: Andre Marriner
How many goals are Man City going to score this Sunday? Honestly, I feel bad for Huddersfield after their 6-1 loss at the Etihad earlier in the season. Man City look ruthless at the moment, and I can only see this going one way.
Huddersfield will keep the majority of their team behind the ball, but surely it’s just a matter of time before the first goal goes in. Then, the floodgates open and Man City are not a team to hold back (Burton and Rotherham fans know).
The Terriers are without a manager right now since David Wagner left earlier in the week, but how will that affect their performance this Sunday? Honestly, I do not see a meaningful change coming from it.
The caretaker manager, Mark Hudson is unlikely to make any real difference that could help Huddersfield in this match where the gulf in class is just so large.
City have scored 19 goals in their last three matches in all competitions, one more than Huddersfield have managed in their last 36 matches. Let that stat sink in. Yes, City have played Burton and Rotherham in those matches, but you cannot look past how crazy that stat is.
Sergio Aguero has scored six goals in his last three matches against Huddersfield, including a hat-trick in the reverse fixture this season.
Firstly, Huddersfield are 22/1 to win, the draw is 8/1 and a Man City win is 1/6.
I mean, Huddersfield could frustrate City and somehow grind out a draw, but I struggle to see that happening. And if it does, what a boring game it will be. I have no hopes for this Super Sunday, but we can hope for the best, I guess.
Personally, I see City dominating this game and scoring a few goals, but conceding a counter-attacking goal at some point. City to win and both teams score is best priced at 12/5 with bet365.
City have conceded in their last four away matches in a row while Huddersfield have scored at least one goal in four of their last five matches.
Fulham v Spurs – Sun 20th Jan, 16:00, Craven Cottage
Referee: Craig Pawson
No Son, no Kane, no Spurs win? It is hard to say, Spurs have a very capable team even without two key players. But, their record without Kane does not make for good viewing. Luckily, they are up against the worst defence in the league for this match.
But, will they bounce back from their home loss against United in their last match? Well, Fulham are looking to avoid a third straight Premier League loss, but they did win their last home match against Huddersfield 1-0.
Fulham just signed Ryan Babel, will he make an appearance for this game? Asides from that, Fulham were big spenders in the summer, but they are yet to click as a team as they sit in the bottom three of the table facing relegation.
Fulham’s defence has slightly improved since Ranieri took over, but they have conceded six goals in their last two matches. However, they have seen under 2.5 goals in their last four home matches, drawing two, losing one and winning one.
Firstly, Fulham are 9/2 to win, the draw is 11/4 and a Spurs win is 7/9.
I do see value in the Spurs win, but it will not be easy for them. Kane and Son have been involved in almost half of all of Spurs goals this season, and they will certainly be missed for this match. I can see Spurs winning this match, but it will be close.
Spurs to win and under 3.5 goals is best priced at 6/4 with Betway! But, a Spurs win and under 2.5 goals is at 17/10 if you are feeling a 1-0/2-0 Tottenham win.
