Premier League: Gameweek 26 Betting Preview and Picks

What a batch of midweek fixtures it was as Bournemouth slaughtered Chelsea, Swansea tripped up Arsenal, Everton purchase Theo Walcott bagged a brace and Tottenham absolutely outclassed Manchester United. Those midweek results will certainly make for some interesting viewing and betting over the weekend as Premier League action gets back at it Saturday.

The marquee matchup pits Tottenham at Liverpool as Jurgen Klopp and the Reds will no doubt seek revenge from the 4-1 beating they were handed by the London boys in the reverse fixture.

Tottenham’s North London rivals Arsenal will be in tough as well as they entertain an Everton side that scored a big win over Leicester midweek courtesy of that Walcott double. This contest will also mark the return of the longtime Arsenal man who was sold to the Toffees in the January window.

Andrew Avery is back to cap all 10 games but picks his favorite side, total and prop with odds courtesy of online shop Bovada.

Side

Crystal Palace (+105)

I can’t quite believe that I’m picking Crystal Palace in this column, but here we are.

Palace entertains Newcastle United in Sunday’s opener and while the Magpies are admittedly a decent side away from home, I think Palace escapes with the spoils here.

Newcastle won the reverse fixture 1-0 back in October, but Palace has played much better football of late. The London outfit faces some injury concerns with the likes of Bakary Sako, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Jason Puncheon and Scott Dann potentially missing out, but the side is paced by Wilfried Zaha, Christian Benteke and Andros Townsend with Yohan Cabaye and Luke Milivojevic pulling the strings in midfield.

Home has been good to Palace, which has taken points in eight of its last nine at Selhurst Park, and Roy Hodgson has the side clicking reasonably well here. I like a three-point haul to kick things off Sunday.

Total

Swansea-Leicester OVER 2.5 (+105)

How in the hell is Swansea sitting on back-to-back wins over Liverpool and Arsenal? The Premier League is weird.

Anyway, next up for the Swans is a trip to Leicester and I love goals in this one. Swansea broke its club-record transfer fee when the team brought Andre Ayew back to Wales from West Ham. His brother Jordan has been in good form as he has goals in two of his last three Premier League games.

Leicester was able to hold on to Riyad Mahrez but time will tell if the tricky wide player features in this one. Either way, there should be goals at the King Power Stadium and I like the plus money here.

Prop

Harry Kane to score any time (+125)

On paper, there could be a ton of goals here as world-class talent will pepper both team sheets ahead of the Sunday kickoff and Harry Kane to score at any time is my favorite play of the entire week.

He scored two in Tottenham’s 4-1 win in the reverse fixture and he scored in the 1-1 draw at Anfield in April of 2016.

Kane is sitting on 99 Premier League goals and would love to bag that 100th that will make him the second fastest to reach the milestone, only passed by the great Alan Shearer.

Plus, any time you can get Kane to score any time at plus money, take it.
