Premier League Preview: Where’s The Betting Value This Weekend?

We take a look at the Premier League's weekend fixtures to try and find the best betting value
07:00, 14 Apr 2023

We’ve got another busy weekend of Premier League action ahead of us with plenty left to decide at both ends of the table as things really begin to heat up. 

To get ready for what’s bound to be another thrilling few days in the English top-flight, we’ve compiled some stats to help you find the best value in the betting this week. 

Aston Villa vs Newcastle United 

When: Saturday, 15 April 

Where: Villa Park

TV: BT Sport

Kick-Off: 12.30pm

Betfred Match Odds: Villa 5/2, Newcastle 11/10, Draw 23/10

Aston Villa and Newcastle both come into this clash in a rich vein of form, with Villa unbeaten in their last seven, winning six, and the Magpies victorious in their previous five. 

Villa’s Ollie Watkins is on a hot streak right now with nine goals in his last 11 Premier League contests and has scored in each of his last three. 

Both teams have scored in only two of the previous eight meetings between these sides in all competitions, with the last three resulting in a side winning to nil.

Ollie Watkins to score any time - 13/8

Southampton vs Crystal Palace

When: Saturday, 15 April 

Where: St Mary’s

Kick-Off: 3pm

Betfred Match Odds: Southampton 7/4, Palace 13/8, Draw 21/10

Bottom of the table Southampton are winless in their last three against Crystal Palace in the Premier League and they could lose twice to the Eagles in a single campaign for the first time since the 1990/91 season. However, Palace have not kept a clean sheet in 22 top-flight away trips to the Saints.

Southampton's home form this term has been a real cause for concern, losing nine. Only in the 1993/94 and 2019/20 seasons have they lost more (both ten). 

Crystal Palace win - 13/8

Everton vs Fulham

When: Saturday, 15 April 

Where: Goodison Park

Kick-Off: 3pm

Betfred Match Odds: Everton EVS, Fulham 13/5, Draw 23/10

The wheels have started to come off for Fulham, despite an incredible start to the season. The Cottagers come into this one on the back of five consecutive defeats in all competitions, conceding 12 and scoring just four in that time. 

With one win in seven, Everton aren’t exactly flying themselves but under the guidance of Sean Dyche, they’ve at least started to grind out some points and have only tasted defeat once in their last five. Both teams have scored in just one of the last five encounters between these clubs.

Both teams to score, No - 4/5

Tottenham Hotspur vs AFC Bournemouth

When: Saturday, 15 April 

Where: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Kick-Off: 3pm

Betfred Match Odds: Spurs 4/9, Bournemouth 6/1, Draw 7/2

Spurs have won all five of their Premier League home games against Bournemouth and have won their last five at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the Premier League, gaining more home points in the competition than any other side since the start of February (15). 

Bournemouth however have won four of their last eight league games, as many as they had in their first 22 games of the season.

Tottenham win and both teams to score - 2/1

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Brentford

When: Saturday, 15 April 

Where: Molineux 

Kick-Off: 3pm

Betfred Match Odds: Wolves 6/4, Brentford 15/8, Draw 11/5

Brentford head to Molineux this weekend on the back of some rocky form. The Bees have lost their last two Premier League contests, as many as in their previous 19. Wolves meanwhile have won four of their previous six at home in the league, keeping a clean sheet in each of those victories.

Ivan Toney has 18 goals to his name in the league this season and has scored three goals in his four encounters with Wolves.

Ivan Toney to score anytime - 11/8

Chelsea vs Brighton & Hove Albion 

When: Saturday, 15 April 

Where: Stamford Bridge 

Kick-Off: 3pm 

Betfred Match Odds: Chelsea 8/5, Brighton 13/8, Draw 23/10

Chelsea have not lost at Stamford Bridge to Brighton & Hove Albion in seven meetings, winning five and conceding just once. Brighton’s sole victory against the Blues in 15 league matches was in the reverse fixture this season, a 4-1 win at the Amex Stadium. 

Frank Lampard will be back in the dugout for Chelsea this weekend as interim manager following the dismissal of Graham Potter. The club legend lost just three of his last 18 home games in charge of Chelsea, with those defeats coming against Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester City.

One of Lampard’s most important tasks will be to get Chelsea firing again. The team have failed to score in their last three PL ties and have failed to score in 12 different games this season, their most in a single campaign in the competition. 

Under 2.5 match goals - 5/6

Manchester City vs Leicester City 

When: Saturday, 15 April 

Where: Etihad Stadium 

TV: Sky Sports Main Event/Sky Sports Premier League 

Kick-Off: 5.30pm 

Betfred Match Odds: Man City 1/7, Leicester 16/1, Draw 7/1

Facing a Man City side that walloped Bayern Munich midweek is a stern first test for Leicester City’s new interim boss Dean Smith. City have won ten of their last 12 contests with the Foxes in the Premier League and four in a row since a 5-2 defeat in 2020. The Cityzens have also won seven of their last eight PL matches (D1), scoring 22 and conceding just six. 

Leicester have lost 19 games this term and if beaten this weekend would lose 20+ games in a single Premier League campaign for the first time since 2001/02.

Manchester City to win both halves - 21/20

West Ham United vs Arsenal

When: Sunday, 16 April 

Where: London Stadium 

TV: Sky Sports Main Event/Sky Sports Premier League 

Kick-Off: 2pm

Betfred Match Odds: West Ham 5/1, Arsenal 4/7, Draw 3/1

West Ham have won just two of their last 29 Premier League games against Arsenal, losing 22, while the Gunners have only lost three of their 26 away matches against the Hammers in the competition.

David Moyes’ side have picked up their form in recent weeks and are looking for back-to-back league wins for the first time since October. They have won as many games in their last three as they had in their previous 14.

Four of the last five meetings between these sides have seen both teams score, with each of the four going over at least 2.5 match goals. 

Arsenal win and both teams to score - 9/4

Nottingham Forest vs Manchester United 

When: Sunday, 16 April

Where: City Ground 

TV: Sky Sports Main Event/Sky Sports Premier League 

Kick-Off: 4.30pm 

Betfred Match Odds: Forest 4/1, Man Utd 8/13, Draw 3/1 

Nottingham Forest’s first home league game against Manchester United since an 8-1 mauling in 1999 couldn’t have come at a worse time for Stever Cooper. Forest are winless and without a clean sheet in their last nine Premier League matches. 

United have won their last nine against Forest in all comps, and have beaten them three times this season already - once in the league, and twice in the League Cup. The Red Devils have scored at least three goals in their last six PL encounters with Forest. 

Manchester United win and over 2.5 match goals - 7/5
