Saturday’s televised Premier League games aren’t the most attractive on paper but another huge day of top-flight English football awaits.
Tottenham and Newcastle kick things off at Wembley before an emotional clash in South Wales in Saturday’s evening Premier League fixture.
It is Cardiff’s first home game since the tragic disappearance of new signing Emiliano Sala and the Bluebirds will want to mark the occasion with a win..
Bournemouth, fresh from their 4-0 victory over Chelsea, will head to the Cardiff City Stadium with the intention of notching a third Premier League win in a row.
We’ve found a tasty double that pays out at around 3/1 in 888sport Premier League betting odds ahead of this weekend’s action – let’s get straight down to the betting tips and odds…
TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR vs Newcastle United
Tottenham had to do things the hard way on Wednesday night, coming back from a goal down with 10 minutes to go against Watford.
That kind of resilience should serve Spurs well in the long term but Mauricio Pochettino’s men will want to make life easier for themselves on Saturday – 6/5 for a home win to nil is worth considering.
Can Newcastle do it again? Surely not. Rafa Benitez’s men did themselves (and Liverpool) a huge favour by beating Manchester City on Tuesday night and confidence will be high.
Punters may be tempted by the 41/20 for Newcastle to avoid defeat this weekend. Backing against Tottenham is easier with both Dele Alli and Harry Kane side-lined to be fair…
Newcastle will be chomping at the bit to get back on the pitch after Tuesday’s win but the Magpies may come crashing down to earth.
Benitez’s side have improved away from home in 2018/19 but backing the visitors would be foolish. 6/5 for Spurs to score in both halves is my top tip. Tottenham should be too strong in front of an expectant Wembley crowd.
TIP: Tottenham to score in both halves @ 6/5
PREDICTED SCORE: Tottenham 2-0 Newcastle (Priced at 6/1 with 888sport)
CARDIFF CITY vs AFC BOURNEMOUTH
Neil Warnock’s men were excellent in the first half at Arsenal on Tuesday night but the Gunners turned on the style in the second half. Still, the Bluebirds will take positives from that 2-1 defeat given the circumstances.
Sala’s disappearance has shocked the football world. Cardiff fans will be preparing for an emotional occasion on Saturday night and Warnock’s side (2/1) could claim all three points.
Meanwhile, Bournemouth will be full of confidence ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash. Eddie Howe’s men were rampant against Chelsea on Wednesday night – much to the delight of Cherries supporters.
7/5 for the visitors to emerge victorious is a decent price. Bournemouth could climb up to seventh in the table this weekend and that should act as motivation to notch another win.
The visitors will take some stopping in their pursuit of finishing 2018/19 as “best of the rest” behind the top six. If Bournemouth emulate Wednesday’s performance, the Cherries will take some stopping.
For me, both teams to score is the way to go here at 4/6. Cardiff need to take advantage of their remaining home fixtures whilst Bournemouth are in decent form – this could turn out to be one of the most surprising games of the weekend.
TIP: Both teams to score @ 4/6
PREDICTED SCORE: Cardiff 2-2 Bournemouth (Priced at 12/1 with 888sport)
