December has arrived and that means the start of a busy Premier League fixture schedule. It could be a huge month at both ends of the table and Tuesday’s four games will set the tone for what should be an exciting festive period.
Without further ado, let’s get down to the Premier League betting tips. West Ham lead our 10/1 accumulator ahead of Tuesday’s top flight action…
AFC BOURNEMOUTH vs HUDDERSFIELD TOWN
Bournemouth’s campaign has gone pear-shaped in recent weeks. The Cherries have lost four on the spin after an excellent start to 2018/19.
To be fair, three of those four defeats came against top six clubs. With that in mind, the 7/10 available for a home victory looks a decent price considering the quality in this Bournemouth squad.
Huddersfield have shown plenty of heart and courage over the last month or so. David Wagner’s side have lost just one of their previous four Premier League matches.
The 6/5 for Huddersfield to avoid defeat isn’t the world price in the world. The Terriers are heading in the right direction and a positive result could be on the cards.
The selection has landed in Bournemouth’s last four games AND in two of Huddersfield’s last three fixtures. 4/5 is a solid price for both teams to score yet again.
TIP: Both teams to score @ 4/5
PREDICTED SCORE: Bournemouth 2-1 Huddersfield (Priced at 6/1 with 888sport)
BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION vs CRYSTAL PALACE
Brighton have lost just one of their last nine Premier League games on home soil and Chris Hughton’s side will fancy their chances ahead of the visit of Crystal Place on Tuesday night.
The Seagulls were excellent value for their win at Huddersfield last weekend and plenty of punters will be tempted by the 37/20 available for a home triumph in this clash.
Crystal Palace picked up four points from their two fixtures against Brighton last season and the Eagles will be quietly confident of notching another positive result here.
7/4 for Roy Hodgson’s side to build on Saturday’s win over Burnley is a good price. We could see Palace return to their best form in the near future and that might be enough to secure three points.
Both teams to score has landed in the last two meetings between these sides and that is the way to go here. At 26/25, the selection is well worth sticking in an accumulator.
TIP: Both teams to score @ 26/25
PREDICTED SCORE: Brighton 1-1 Crystal Palace (Priced at 5/1 with 888sport)
WEST HAM UNITED vs Cardiff City
West Ham produced the perfect away performance against Newcastle United last weekend, scoring three goals to stun the St James’ Park faithful.
With just two wins from seven home league games so far this season, the Hammers will be desperate to claim three points in what is a very winnable fixture. Over 1.5 home goals is a very appealing 4/6.
Cardiff have started to string a run of results together in recent weeks but the Bluebirds have picked up just one point from six Premier League away games in 2018/19.
However, given West Ham’s struggles on home soil, this could be the perfect opportunity for Neil Warnock’s side to prevail. 27/20 for the visitors to avoid defeat is worth a second look.
Taking everything into account, siding with the Hammers to silence their home doubters is my top tip here. 8/13 is a solid price given Cardiff’s poor run on the road.
TIP: West Ham to win @ 8/13
PREDICTED SCORE: West Ham 2-0 Cardiff (Priced at 7/1 with 888sport)
Watford vs MANCHESTER CITY
A run of four games without a win has seen Watford drop down the Premier League table, though the Hornets are still clinging on to a top half spot ahead of this encounter.
Watford have been hit and miss this campaign and the hosts will be desperate to put up a good showing here. 8/11 for over 0.5 home goals is worth considering despite their recent woes.
Meanwhile, City will be quietly confident of notching a seventh successive league victory – the Blues are superior to Watford in every department.
Pep Guardiola’s side have scored 11 goals in their last two trips to Vicarage Road and the 11/10 for City to score three or more on Tuesday night represents solid value.
However, the 17/20 for the visitors to score in both halves might be the best way to go. This could be another convincing performance from the best team in the country.
TIP: Man City to score in both halves @ 17/20
PREDICTED SCORE: Watford 1-3 Man City (Priced at 9/1 with 888sport)
