Premier League: Gameweek 25 Betting Preview and Picks

Marcos Alonso Chelsea Premier League

With no Premier League games last weekend thanks to the FA Cup, we get a full slate of midweek fixtures Tuesday and Wednesday before normal weekend action resumes.

Gameweek 25 is highlighted by Manchester United visiting Tottenham Hotspur but there is plenty of betting opportunity up and down the board.

Andrew Avery and Rob Trites are back to examine all 10 midweek games and identify their favorite sides, totals and props with odds courtesy of online shop Bovada.

Sides

Rob: Leicester City (+150)

The Evertonians are playing a special brand of anti-football right now with just three points in their last five fixtures and I’m fading them until Big Sam proves he can get his Toffees out of the sticky mess he’s gotten them into.

Leicester, on the other hand, keeps on proving its quality and ability to close matches. The Foxes have eked out seven points in their last three EPL appointments and will be very disappointed to come away from Goodison with anything fewer than three points.

Andrew: Burnley (+285)

Honestly, I just really love the value here so nothing more than a one-unit play on this one as far as I’m concerned.

Newcastle has struggled mightily at St. James’ Park as they sit 19th in the table in terms of home form with just a dozen points from a dozen matches. The Magpies are coming off back-to-back draws on home turf but those came against Brighton (0-0) and lowly Swansea (1-1).

The Clarets won the reverse fixture 1-0 back in October and have hit a bit of a skid since flirting with the European places. Burnley hasn’t won since December 12 with just three points from its last seven league games.

Totals

Rob: Swansea City-Arsenal OVER 2.5 (-135)

A quick look at the results would have you believe that Swansea could be a club on the mend after that shocking win against Liverpool but I’m not sure that’s the case. Lukasz Fabianski was perpetually under immense pressure from an attacking front that had a noticeable lack of Philippe Coutinho and finishing ability.

I expect Arsenal to succeed where the Reds failed. The Gunners look like a brand new team without Alexis, playing the football of Arsene Wenger’s dreams in their 4-1 triumph over Palace last week and that should continue in Wales midweek.

I’ll likely take an adjusted total line of OVER 3 (+125) but for those looking to play it safe, O 2.5 seems like a lock.

Andrew: Spurs-Man United UNDER 2.5 (-110)

Tottenham has been dreadful in its last two games with a 1-1 draw to an awful Southampton side coupled with a lucky escape from the fortress of Rodney Parade with a 1-1 draw against Newport County in the FA Cup last weekend. Nobody does hot and cold like Tottenham Hotspur.

Neither of these sides is scared of hitting the back of the net as United sits third in goals scored (49) and Spurs sit fourth (47). But I think we might see some cautious Mourinho ball on Wednesday with the Red Devils parking more than a few buses in an attempt to leave Wembley with a share of the points at the very least.

Props

Rob: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to score any time (+260)

Great value for a player who’s found some form of late, scoring the icebreaker in Liverpool’s 4-3 showstopper vs Manchester City. While he’s only netted three in the Prem this campaign, Ox has always been a streaky scorer and he’s not lacking confidence right now given his new elevated role in the Reds’ starting 11.

Andrew: Marcos Alonso to score any time (+210)

Which player ranks third on Chelsea in terms of goals scored? Well, if you answered Marcos Alonso, you’re correct.

The Spanish wingback sports one of the sweetest left pegs in the game and has scored six Premier League goals in what has proven to be another stellar, yet underrated, season since moving to London from Fiorentina.

Alonso is incredibly dangerous from dead-ball situations but is also adept at cutting inside and pinging one with that aforementioned left foot or even getting into the mixer with a header.

The way Alvaro Morata (-130) is going, the Blues could potentially be looking elsewhere up and down the lineup for goals so give Alonso a go at this price.
