Let’s take a look at some of the upcoming encounters set to be played in the Premier League this weekend.
Almost every week there are many superb encounters to follow in the top divisions of European football, however none can quite compare to the Premier League. This elite competition is perhaps the most competitive and challenging league in Europe which, as a result, produces excellent football week-in week-out.
• Arsenal looking to continue fine form against the Hammers
• Crystal Palace aiming for a win against QPR
• Leicester and Hull City face uncertainty for their game on Saturday
For this weekend sporting fans will have the chance to witness plenty of superb action. According to UK gambling news, Crystal Palace will face QPR, while West Ham will try to put on their best performance against Arsenal. Leicester will go head to head with Hull City and finally Sunderland will host Aston Villa where they will aim to win the match.
Crystal Palace vs QPR and Arsenal vs West Ham
Crystal Palace will be looking to add a few extra points this Saturday afternoon when they face Queens Park Rangers at home. The Eagles currently sit in 12th place with 30 points and have also notched 2 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses in the last 5 encounters. They would like to put on a strong performance against their opponents in the next match and make progress up the table. At home their record stands at 3 wins, 3 draws and a staggering 7 losses, stats that are not reassuring.
QPR on the other hand are in a precarious position occupying 18th spot with only 22 points from 28 games so far. Their form is quite bad as most of their recent matched ended in losses (4), while managing to record only 1 win. That is why Bet365 does not have high hopes for them as they gear up to play against Crystal Palace. Their odds stand at 4.75 (15/4), while a win for the Eagles has been set at 1.75 (3/4). A draw 3.60 (13/5) could also happen between the two.
Arsenal currently find themselves in 3rd position on the table claiming a total of 54 points. Up until recently they were struggling to find their form which would enable them to clinch onto a top 4 place, however since the return of Mesut Ozil the Gunners have been flying. At home they won on 9 occasions, while recording 3 draws and 1 loss in the process. Since their results have been pretty impressive lately, mobile betting sites strongly favor them for the win against the Hammers.
West Ham are located in the middle of the table with 39 points, having clocked some negative results. Their form has been quite unimpressive (3 draws and 2 losses in the last five games), which is why their chances are quite limited 8.00 (7/1) against the Gunners. A draw 4.50 (7/2) does not seem to be on the cards as well considering how well Arsenal are playing at the moment. The odds for Arsene Wenger’s men beating West Ham have been set at 1.40 (2/5).
Leicester vs Hull City and Sunderland vs Aston Villa
Leicester have not managed to bring themselves out of the relegation zone and they are one of the favorites to be demoted to the Championship next season. Over the course of the last 5 matches they lost 4 games, while managing to tie only 1. Their home record is equally bad having won only twice with the rest of the encounters ending in 4 draws and 6 losses.
Hull City will pay them a visit on Saturday afternoon where they will aim to take advantage of their opponent’s current misery. The Tigers sit in 15th position with 27 points overall, however they haven’t performed well while playing away from their own ground, notching 2 wins, 5 draws and 7 losses. Due to this Bet365 assigned them unfavorable chances 3.75 (11/4), while rewarding Leicester with preferential odds 2.00 (1/1). In reality, the game will most likely end in a draw 3.40 (12/5) or a win for the visiting side.
Sunderland is preparing to square off against Aston Villa at home on Saturday afternoon in what is looking to an uncertain match judging by the results in recent times. The hosts have recorded 3 draws and 2 losses in their last 5 games, while their home record is also uncertain (2 wins, 7 draws and 5 losses). Despite their bad results, online sportsbooks in UK favor them to win the encounter 2.25 (5/4).
Aston Villa have been assigned underdog odds 3.40 (12/5) since they will be the visiting team for this match. They find themselves 1 place below Sunderland with an overall of 25 points and a very concerning away record (3 wins, 2 draws and 9 losses). A draw 3.10 (21/10) might also very happen for this game judging by the recent results of both sides.
