After taking some time off to have the FA Cup, the Premier League is back with an action-packed weekend as we have eight games to preview! We are here to tell you not just who will win but who are the best bets for this weekend. Of course, we also have a Cup Final to preview, but that will get its own blog!
Premier League Table Going Into This Weekend.
Sunderland A.F.C. @ Everton F.C.
It's the David Moyes derby this weekend as the bottom of the table Sunderland goes to Everton in a game which will display two of the top Premier League strikers this season in Romelu Lukaku and Jermain Defoe. Both of these teams have defenses that can be opened up but Sunderland is just so poor. When Everton are at full force with Lukaku, Barkley, and others they are a team that can really hurt you. I think this game will be close but Everton is just too good up front for Sunderland who has proved time and time again they just can't cope with good offensive teams. Everton to win 2-1.
A.F.C. Bournemouth @ West Bromwich Albion F.C.
The struggling Bournemouth go to West Brom in a match where both teams are on the opposite spectrum on the form table. West Brom had a last minute equalizer against West Ham in their last match as they once again showed their skill and most importantly, their determination and character. Bournemouth is coming off a 2-0 loss to Manchester City as it was their fourth loss in their last five. This is pretty simple, West Brom is just so much better and especially when you look at the away record table as Bournemouth have only eight points away from home all season. Tony Pulis will once again push on for his chance at Premier League glory as West Brom will win comfortably 3-0.
Middlesbrough F.C. @ Crystal Palace F.C.
Crystal Palace: [+109]
Middlesbrough go to London in a match that is a must-win for the home team as Crystal Palace need to get out of their funk quickly if they want any chance at survival. Palace has one win in five matches and are the bottom of the Premier League in home form with only seven points and a goal differential of -7. This is a huge issue as Middlesbrough are decent away from home. Even though they only have nine points they have only conceded 13 goals on their travels which isn't too bad. I see Big Sam going hard for this one but I just can't trust Crystal Palace to do anything. 1-1 Draw.
Burnley F.C. @ Hull City A.F.C.
Hull City: [+116]
Burnley have been amazing at home but absolutely shit away from it. Now they travel to Hull City that seems like they can actually be saved this year as Leicester, Sunderland and Crystal Palace are all in turmoil. Hull are coming off three impressive matches as they drew to Manchester United, beat Liverpool (at home) and were cheated by the officials against Arsenal. Taking into account Hull City's form and Burnley's form away from home I see this being a close match but Hull City will win 1-0.
Swansea City A.F.C. @ Chelsea F.C.
Hull City: [+376]
Swansea will try to repeat the last time they went to Stamford Bridge as they try to distance themselves from the bottom three. Chelsea has a huge lead on Manchester City and Spurs and now with City not playing this weekend, this would make it a massive lead as their make up game is against Manchester United. I think this game will be tough for Chelsea but I just think are just too good and they realize how big of an opportunity it is. Swansea will score, though, but sadly, it will end 3-1 to Chelsea.
West Ham United F.C. @ Watford F.C.
West Ham: [+200]
West Ham and Watford meet in a battle of mid-table clubs as with a win Watford will go over West Ham United in the table. West Ham is coming off an awful draw to West Brom as they conceded in the last minute of play. Watford is always a tough team to read due to their inconsistent attack and awful goal keeping. I would stay away from this one. A draw is pretty much a guarantee in that match, 1-1 this will end.
Stoke City F.C. @ Tottenham Hotspur F.C.
Tottenham tries to save their week after Dele Alli's leg breaking challenge drove them out the Europa League in the round of 32. Now Tottenham focus to get back on track as they host Stoke City as the final year at White Hart Lane is quickly coming to an end. Tottenham are playing well but aren't scoring as much as they should but against Stoke (who they battered in the reverse fixture) are inconsistent and show they are mentally weak sometimes. I think Spurs will go full out to get these MASSIVE three points and I think they will, I don't trust them to do it convincingly though. Tottenham to win 1-0.
Liverpool F.C. @ Leicester City F.C.
A couple of days ago I wrote a blog about what Leicester should do with Claudio Ranieri and shockingly, they sacked him days after, so now they are still shit at the back and going forward but now without a manager. Now they host Liverpool who is offensively dangerous and ready to pounce on this dying club. I will keep this straight, I think Liverpool will destroy, full out destroy Leicester. Liverpool to win 3-0.
