Premier League Saturday 3pm Predictions
Crystal Palace v Leicester City predictions & betting tips
Suddenly this match is a very tough one to call. Leicester City have surged eight points clear of the relegation zone following a superb win-streak under new boss Craig Shakespeare, while Crystal Palace are now six points clear of the drop-zone after their sensational 3-0 win over Arsenal on Monday night made it five wins from their last six games for the in-form Eagles. This really is a match that could go either way, so I suggest ignoring the Match Betting market and going with Both Teams To Score. Leicester have been rattling in the goals recently and Palace have not been goal-shy either.
Everton v Burnley predictions & betting tips
Everton have bounced back from their derby defeat by taking four points from their last two games, following up a draw at Manchester United with a home win over Leicester City, and they will be eager to collect three more points on Saturday as they continue their quest to book a spot in next season’s Europa League. They should keep the pressure on Manchester United and Arsenal by beating a Burnley side that have an appalling away record. The Clarets are yet to win on their travels in the league this season, drawing four times and losing 12, and have only scored nine goals. Three points and a clean sheet is on the cards for Everton.
Stoke City v Hull City predictions & betting tips
Stoke City’s losing run hit four games with the 2-1 home defeat to Liverpool a week ago, and the Potters have now gone over a month without winning a Premier League match. There is a comfortable cushion between them and the relegation zone at this time, but Mark Hughes’ side will be eager to get back to winning ways to avoid being dragged into a battle and I am backing them to collect all three points here. Hull City’s form has improved considerably under new boss Marco Silva, but their successes have come at home. The Tigers continue to lose games on their travels and Saturday’s trip to the bet365 Stadium should be no different.
Sunderland v West Ham United predictions & betting tips
Sunderland supporters are already preparing for trips to the likes of Ipswich and Barnsley next season, having seen their side move within a couple of weeks of relegation with the 3-0 defeat to Manchester United last time. They simply must beat West Ham United on Saturday and although the Hammers are hardly in good form, it is almost impossible to have any faith in Sunderland recording a positive result right now. West Ham can leave the Black Cats one defeat away from the drop to the Championship.
Watford v Swansea City predictions & betting tips
Swansea City are only two points from safety despite a miserable run that has seen them take just one point from their last five games, and that means a win at Watford could lift them out of the relegation zone. But does anybody really expect them to leave Vicarage Road with all three points? The Hornets are closing in on a top-half finish – an impressive achievement for them – and is largely down to a solid home record. Watford have lost just one of their last six home games and they should see off a Swansea side that has an appalling away record.
