Tuesday’s Premier League Betting Tips
Cardiff v Everton – Tue 26th Feb, 19:45, Cardiff City Stadium
Referee: Kevin Friend
Cardiff are usually quite solid at home, but they truly got hammered by Watford in their last match, losing 5-1 at the Cardiff City Stadium. But, could they rectify that loss against an inconsistent Everton side that have been struggling as of late.
Everton have lost four of their last five matches, only winning one, against the bottom of the table Huddersfield. Everton are struggling on the goal front, with just three goals in their last five matches.
Meanwhile, Cardiff have been a bit more consistent in front of goal, scoring six goals in their last four games. They will be confident in getting a goal against an Everton side that has kept just two clean sheets on the road this season.
But, the Bluebirds are also capable of leaking goals, conceding 13 in their last five games despite keeping two clean sheets in that time.
A draw is not that great for Cardiff right now, and I am interested to see if Warnock goes for the three points against a struggling Everton.
Firstly, Cardiff are 29/10 to win, the draw is 12/5 and an Everton win is 23/20.
Everton certainly have a capable squad, but I have not been convinced by them in recent games.
To start, I do see value in both teams getting on the scoresheet at 10/11 with Betfred. Everton have kept just two clean sheets on the road, and I think they will concede once again tonight.
But, they should have enough to break this Cardiff team down, especially after conceding five goals just a few days ago.
I am struggling to call this one, to be honest, but I do see value in the draw at 12/5.
Cardiff are quite a tough team to beat at home, despite their 5-1 drumming against Watford last time out. While Everton have been off the pace for quite some time.
Huddersfield v Wolves
Referee: David Coote
I have already written a preview for this match, check it out in my Mixed Acca tip here!
Firstly, Huddersfield are 4/1 to win, the draw is 5/2 and a Wolves win is 20/23.
Wolves are already in my Mixed Acca tip, so obviously I see value in them winning at 20/23 with Betfair. But, there is actually more value in Wolves to score over 1.5 goals at 6/5 with bet365.
Of course, Wolves could win this one 1-0, but I do see them pushing and scoring at least two goals in this match.
Wolves have struggled with keeping clean sheets in recent games, and this could lead to them needing more than one goal to win this.
Leicester v Brighton
Referee: Lee Probert
Well, Claude Puel has been sacked, and it looks like Brendan Rodgers is going to take over, but obviously not in time for this game tonight. Personally, I hate backing a team that has just lost their manager, as anything can happen really.
It is completely up to the players how they react to this decision, and it renders stats, form and other tools pretty much useless.
Leicester have been struggling (obvious with a manager being sacked) with five losses and one draw in their last six games.
But, they have been consistent scorers, only failing once in that time. Meanwhile, Brighton have been struggling for form too, and often struggle on the road.
The Seagulls have lost four of their last five games while drawing one, but their away form is the concern for this match. They have won just two games while losing nine and drawing two on the road this season.
Brighton have been fairly consistent at scoring on the road, and in recent games have scored five goals in their last three away matches. But, they have also conceded eight goals in that time.
Firstly, Leicester are 10/11 to win, the draw is 5/2 and a Brighton win is 4/1.
Again, it is very hard to predict how the players will react to losing their manager. Really, this is a game that could be good for an in-play bet.
But, I do see value in both teams getting on the scoresheet at 21/20 with PaddyPower. Leicester are consistent scorers, and will likely get a goal in this game.
But, their defence has been quite vulnerable, and it is likely to stay that way until Brendan Rodgers addresses the issues.
Newcastle v Burnley
Referee: Craig Pawson
The inform Burnley make the tough trip to St. James’ Park against a Newcastle side that has won three of their last five games, drawing one and losing one.
Meanwhile, Burnley are undefeated away from home this year, winning two and drawing two. The Clarets have seen a great improvement in their form, and Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes have played big parts in their resurgence.
Burnley’s last nine away goals have been scored by either Wood (five goals) and Barnes (four goals). But, they face a Newcastle side that are in good form at the moment, especially at home.
Newcastle have won their last three home matches in a row, scoring seven goals while only conceding one.
The Magpies have impressed me in a number of games I have watched them in, especially against some of the “bigger” sides.
But, they will be in for a tough match against a Burnley side full of confidence, especially on the road.
Firstly, Newcastle are 11/10 to win, the draw is 23/10 and a Burnley win is 10/3.
I honestly see the most value in a draw at 23/10 with bet365. Look, this game could go either way, with both sides capable of nicking this one.
But, I think it will be a very close match, and a stalemate has great value.
I do also see value in a Burnley double chance at 4/5 with bet365. If I was to pick one side slightly more likely to nick this game, it would be Burnley.
I am surprised at their odds at 10/3 considering their form right now. But, a double chance is there to cover the draw I see on the cards.
