On paper, Sunday’s Premier League games appear one-sided. However, top fight fans know by now to expect the unexpected.
Huddersfield Town have pushed Manchester City to their limits in two of their last three meetings and the Terriers will make it difficult for the visitors.
The defending Premier League champions have scored 19 goals in their last three games in all competitions though and Pep Guardiola’s men could run riot.
Meanwhile, Harry Kane-less Tottenham Hotspur make the short trip to Fulham in Sunday’s second Premier League clash.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side, also without Heung-Min Son for the next month or so, will need to be at their brilliant best to get past the Cottagers.
Without further ado, let’s get down to Sunday’s Premier League betting tips. At the time of writing, the double pays out at a very tasty 5/1.
Huddersfield Town vs MANCHESTER CITY
Currently rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table, Huddersfield’s current position is precarious at best. With David Wagner now gone, the Terriers are clear favourites to drop back down to the Championship in 888sport football odds.
Huddersfield have failed to inspire confidence in front of goal for most of 2018/19. A change in head coach can sometimes give players a boost though and we could see Town play with added freedom. 5/4 for the home team to score is worth considering.
Manchester City are on fire right now. The defending Premier League champions are four points behind pacesetters Liverpool but Pep’s men will be confident of climbing above their rivals in the near future. Write Manchester City off at your peril.
The visitors have struggled in recent fixtures against Huddersfield. However, City put six past their opponents at the beginning of the campaign and another convincing victory awaits. 21/20 for Manchester City to win both halves is an exceptional price.
This one could get ugly for Huddersfield if the defending champions go for the jugular. There is a clear gulf in class and Manchester City might run up a cricket score once again. Take the 7/10 for the visitors to score three or more goals on Sunday.
TIP: Over 2.5 Manchester City goals @ 7/10
PREDICTED SCORE: Huddersfield 0-3 Man City (Priced at 27/5 with 888sport)
Fulham vs TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR
Claudio Ranieri’s arrival hasn’t had the desired impact at Fulham just yet. The Italian, one of the most charismatic managers in Premier League history, still insists that his side have the ability to string a run of results together in the coming months.
Aleksandar Mitrovic’s goals could prove decisive as Fulham look to avoid relegation. He has scored eight goals in 22 Premier League games and he is likely to lead the line again here. 21/10 for the Serbian to get his name on the scoresheet is a good price.
Meanwhile, Tottenham will be without Harry Kane and Heung-min Son for the next month or so. Do Mauricio Pochettino’s side have enough in the final third? Only time will tell. This will be a stern test of Tottenham’s credentials as a squad.
Spurs have won the last four meetings between the two sides and that is probably why the north London outfit are as short as 3/4 in 888sport Premier League odds. The visitors have been hit and miss in recent weeks but it is hard to envision more dropped points.
For me, Tottenham to win and both teams to score (13/5) is the best bet ahead of this one. Ranieri will have his troops fired up and ready to go but Spurs may win the midfield battle and that might be enough for the visitors to claim three points.
TIP: Tottenham Hotspur to win and both teams to score @ 13/5
PREDICTED SCORE: Fulham 1-2 Tottenham (Priced at 13/2 with 888sport)
