Premier League Betting Tips
The domestic football season returns this weekend following a two-week break with the conclusion of the World Cup qualifying.
And there’s plenty of action across the weekend, with games on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
Newcastle United v Liverpool
Newcastle go into this encounter against second-placed Liverpool in hit and miss form, having only picked up one league win in the last three games.
They beat Cardiff City 2-1 a fortnight ago but before that suffered defeats to Hull City and Everton. But the Magpies have in-form striker Loic Remy at their disposal, with the Frenchman netting five times in their last three games.
However captain Fabricio Coloccini is injured and will not play, neither will Jonas Gutierrez whilst Steven Taylor remains a doubt.
Liverpool have Glen Johnson, Joe Allen and Aly Cissokho back from injury whilst Lucas returns following a ban.
Liverpool demolished Newcastle in their last meeting, running out 6-0 winners in April and they are favourites going into this meeting, with Bet 365 providing the best odds of 17/20. The best odds on a Newcastle win come from Betfred at 7/2.
The game kicks-off at 12:45pm on Saturday and is live on BT Sport 1.
West Ham v Manchester City
The tea-time game on Saturday sees fifth-placed Manchester City travel to the capital to face a West Ham side who have only won one of their last six league matches.
Sam Allardyce’s side go into the game in 13th place but their last league result was an excellent 3-0 win against European hopefuls Tottenham but they’ll be without James Collins who misses out with a hamstring injury.
Manuel Pellegrini’s City side haven’t had the best of runs lately but will fancy their chances going into this match. They remain without captain Vincent Kompany and Martin Demichelis although the pair are closing in on a return to the fray.
City have only picked up one away point in the league but are favourites ahead of the match, Paddy Power, amongst others, offering the best odds at 8/11. The best price on a West Ham win is 9/2, with a number of sites including Bet 365 offering those odds.
The game kicks off at 5:30pm and is live on Sky Sports 1.
Aston Villa v Tottenham
The only game on Sunday sees Tottenham travel to the West Midlands to face Paul Lambert’s Aston Villa side.
Following a slight dip in form, Villa have picked up of late and go into the game 10th having taken seven points from the last three, including wins over Norwich City and Manchester City.
Christian Benteke has missed the last two games and is a doubt going into the Spurs game although has trained with Belgium and Villa.
AVB’s side will be without Danny Rose and Etienne Capoue whilst Younes Kaboul is unlikely to feature either.
Spurs have not lost any of the nine meetings between the sides and they are being backed for victory on Sunday with Paddy Power providing odds of 21/10. The best odds on a Villa win are 3/1 with a number of sites including Bet 365 providing that price.
The game is live on Sky Sports 1 from 4pm.
