Premier League Tips – 5th & 6th October 2019
There’s another big week in the Premier League this weekend with highlights including leaders Liverpool hosting third-placed Leicester and Man City hosting a Wolves side who are yet to turn up in the league.
Here we run through our betting tips for the most enticing Premier League matches this weekend.
Saturday 5th October
Brighton and Hove Albion v Tottenham Hotspur
Odds: Home 29/10 | Draw 13/5 | Away 10/11
The early kick off in the Premier League on Saturday sees Brighton host Spurs. The Seagulls haven’t had a great start to the campaign with just one league win from seven games, with three draws and three defeats. Tottenham, meanwhile, look to be easing their way back into some kind of form after two wins from their last three games.
While Mauricio Pochettino’s men are hardly setting the top flight alight at the moment, we think they should have enough to get the three points here. Back the visitors to win to nil looks decent value to us against a side who are struggling to find the back of the net.
Betting tip: Tottenham to win to nil at 13/5 with BetVictor
Burnley v Everton
Odds: Home 9/5 | Draw 23/10 | Away 6/4
With three straight defeats in the Premier League, Everton fans are starting to get a little jittery to say the least. Failure to get three points from the short trip to Burnley could spell curtains for Marco Silva, or at least it would pile the pressure on.
Burnley are currently two points but four places above Everton in the table having won two, drawn three and lost two games so far in the Premier League.
Betting tip: Draw at 23/10 with bet365
Liverpool v Leicester City
Odds: Home 1/2 | Draw 10/3 | Away 5/1
Table-toppers Liverpool have a tricky fixture against high-flying Leicester City this weekend, and the Foxes will be well up for the battle. Brendan Rodgers’ men come into this one on the back of a 5-0 demolition job on lowly Newcastle United, and though they are very much the outsiders in this one, they have a much better chance than their odds suggest.
Having said that, Liverpool have beaten all before them in the Premier League this term and such a run cannot be discounted, especially when they are playing at Anfield. We certainly think the visitors will have a decent go though so backing a home win with a few goals being scored in the game looks a decent call to us.

West Ham United v Crystal Palace
Odds: Home Evens | Draw 5/2 | Away 13/5
West Ham, somewhat surprisingly to many, have faired well in the Premier League this term and after seven games they are knocking on the door of the top four. With three wins, three draws and just one defeat, it appears that Manuel Pellegrini’s men have turned something of a corner. But can they maintain their fine form when Crystal Palace visit?
The Eagles, meanwhile, haven’t been doing too badly either and are currently in ninth place in the league after three wins and two draws. Overall though we fancy this will turn out to be another positive result for the Hammers and we’re backing the home win at evens.

Sunday 6th October
Arsenal v Bournemouth
Odds: Home 4/9 | Draw 4/1 | Away 5/1
Arsenal got a decent enough point at Man United on Monday evening, but given the stuggles the Red Devils have had this term, Arsenal fans might be a little disapointed their side didn’t take all three points.
The Gunners are hot favourites to get all three points at home to Bournemouth on Sunday, and even though Arsenal play in the Europa League on Thursday night, we think they’ll get the job done with room to spare. As such we’re backing them with a -1 goal handicap.
Betting tip: Arsenal to win -1 at 11/10 with Coral
Manchester City v Wolverhampton Wanderers
Odds: Home 1/7 | Draw 13/2 | Away 16/1
Man City might be five points behind leaders Liverpool, but the champions are clearly still a class act and Wolves are going to have their work cut out in this one on Sunday.
Wolves managed to muster their first league win of the season last time out against lowly Watford, but City beat the Hornets 8-0 not so long ago, and we think the Citizens will win this one, albeit in a closer match.
Betting tip: Man City to win -2 at Evens with Betfair
Newcastle United v Manchester United
Odds: Home 10/3 | Draw 5/2 | Away 17/20
Both these sides are underperforming this season and the pressue is mounting on both managers. Man United are the odds-on favourites to get the three points, but we think the Red Devils might actually struggle in this one and instead we’re backing the home side to get at least a draw by backing them in the Asian handicap market with a +0.5 goal headstart.
Betting tip: Newcastle +0.5 at 17/16 with BetVictor

Best Football Betting Markets
- Match Odds – also called 90 minute betting, home/draw/away or just “winner”, this is probably the simplest and also the most popular Premier League bet. Simply pick which team you think will win – or if it will be a draw – and away you go.
- Both Teams to Score – Betting on both teams to score is a fairly new bet that is massively popular with football fans and those that like to bet on the Premier League. Does exactly what it says on the tin – if both teams score you win. A great bet as it usually offers value for your bet and excitement until the final kick and a good one for stats fans as there is loads of info on both teams to score, also called BTTS, out there to analyse.
- Over/Under – Backing “overs” usually refers to betting on over 2.5 goals in total in a Premier League match (or other game of football), that is to say three goals or more, whilst “unders” usually means two goals or fewer. However, you can also bet over/under any total goals the bookie offers, with 1.5 and 3.5 goals the other two popular bets.
- First/Last/Anytime Goalscorer – A popular bet because it offers long odds, especially for the first or last goalscorer options. Own goals do not count for this market, with “no goalscorer” also an option and as with all football bets, unless otherwise specified this is 90 minutes plus stoppage time only (although of course extra time and penalties are irrelevant in Premier League betting anyway).
- Half Time/Full Time – A good way to up the odds from a standard match bet on who will win the game, this is a bet on a what the result will be at both half time and full time, with nine possible options covering every possibility, for example, draw/Man United (the game to be level at the break with United winning at full time) or Man United/Everton (United ahead at 45 minutes with Everton winning by the final whistle).
- Asian Handicaps – An Asian handicap is a football bet popular in Asia, hence the name, where betting on the Premier League is big business. With an Asian handicap (as opposed to a standard or three-way handicap) there are just two options, Team A or Team B, with the draw ruled out. This is done either by offering a handicap of half a goal, for example, Liverpool +0.5 means if Liverpool draw the bet wins, or by offering a “push”, a returned stake, in the event of a draw.
Premier League Facts, Statistics and Trivia

- Talking of goals, the highest scorer in the history of the Premier League is Alan Shearer, whose 260 goals in 441 games doesn’t look like being caught anytime soon, with Wayne Rooney the only active player anywhere near Shearer with 173 in 374 matches as of the end of the 2013-14 campaign.

A Very Brief History of the Premier League
The Premier League had its first season in 1992-93, having been formed by a breakaway from the Football League as the clubs decided they wanted more power and could make more money from TV. Setting the trend for the next 20 years or so, Man United were the first champions, seeing off Aston Villa and Norwich to claim their eight top flight title. Oldham, Coventry, Sheffield Wednesday and others were among the 22 sides that year as Crystal Palace, Middlesbrough and Nottingham Forest were relegated.
United would dominate the early years of the Premier League, winning the title eight times in the first 11 years, with Blackburn Rovers (1994-95) and Arsenal (twice) the only sides to stop them enjoying total domination, United finishing twice as runner-up and once third when they didn’t lift the title.
Arsenal enjoyed great success in Arsene Wenger’s early years, lifting the title in 1998, 2002 and 2004 before Roman Abramovich’s Chelsea takeover saw the Blues come to the fore as the 21st century wore on. Under Jose Mourinho they lifted the title twice in 2005 and 2006 before Sir Alex Ferguson pulled off one of his most remarkable feats to deny Chelsea’s revolution and guide United to three consecutive titles.
Since then Man City, again fuelled by overseas money, this time the petro-cash of Abu Dhabi, have won the Premier League title twice in three years and with Ferguson finally retiring the ongoing race for the Premier League looks more open and more exciting than ever.
