This weekend, we have two recommended football bets from the English Premier League, with the juiciest odds on offer from popular sports betting firm, Ladbrokes. Read on for more details.
The English Premier League season may be winding down, but there is still plenty of money to be made from betting on football matches and we have a couple of tips for you this Sunday.
First up, Wigan Athletic travel to FA Cup runners-up Stoke City. Stoke have an excellent home record and have conceded just 17 goals in 18 games on their own patch, while Wigan have scored 17 times in 18 away matches, one of the worst records in the Premier League. In fact, Wigan have the second worst overall goal scoring record in the division.
A massive 74% of Stoke’s 46 points this season have come from matches played in front of their own fans and we just can’t understand how Stoke can be as big as 2.88 at home to a side as poor as Wigan. Sure, they have already qualified for Europe and their cup final is over, but they will want to please their home crowd and a team managed by Tony Pulis will not roll over.
Secondly, Newcastle look a good price to beat West Brom at St James’ Park. Neither side has anything left to play for, which could lead to an open, attractive game of football; not that Newcastle need much of an excuse to play that way – 67% of their home matches this season have featured 3 or more goals, with Newcastle scoring 38 times in 18 home matches – only champions Manchester United average better.
Only West Ham United and Aston Villa can boast a worse defensive record than West Brom in away matches and the Baggies are yet to keep a clean sheet this season, a fact that doesn’t bode well ahead of a trip to free scoring Newcastle.
