The following are betting tips for selected fixtures in Gameweek 4 of the 2018/19 English Premier League.
Crystal Palace vs. Southampton
Back Crystal Palace in the draw no bet (+0.0 Asian handicap) market at 1.44 (Betfair)
Crystal Palace have gone 6-4-0 when installed as the home favourite over the last 12 months while Southampton have gone 0-3-7 as the away underdog. Southampton did win this fixture last season but that was during Palace’s horrific start under previous manager Frank de Boer and Palace talisman Wilfried Zaha was out injured. With Zaha back in the side later in the 2017/18 season, they beat Southampton 2-1 away from home. Palace won the previous two meetings at Selhurst Park 1-0 and 3-0.
Back Wilfried Zaha in the anytime goalscorer market at 2.80 (Neds)
Wilfried Zaha has scored 7 goals in his last 9 EPL appearances.
West Ham vs. Wolverhampton
Back Wolverhampton +0.5 at 1.60 (Betfair)
Neither side has won a game yet this season, but West Ham’s form is a concern. They’ve lost all three games and conceded at least 2 goals in each of them. If they start this game poorly there’s a chance the crowd will turn on them. Wolverhampton have picked up two draws and will have received a huge boost in confidence from their 1-1 draw with Man City last week.
Everton vs. Huddersfield
Back Everton in the head to head at 1.55 (Betfair)
Everton have gone 10-1-1 as the home favourite over the last 12 months while Huddersfield have gone 2-5-12 on the road. Huddersfield have been held scoreless in 13 of their 19 away fixtures and they have scored just one goal in their opening 3 fixtures this campaign.
Six of Huddersfield’s last 12 away defeats were by 2 goals. Eleven of their last 12 away defeats were to nil and both meetings between the two sides ended in 2-0 wins for Everton last season.
Man City vs. Newcastle
Man City drew Wolverhampton 1-1 last week and the last five times that City failed to win an EPL fixture, they won the following game by 2+ goals. In a streak going back to 2007, Man City have gone 9-0-0 at home in EPL fixtures against Newcastle. The last time that Newcastle won a league game at this venue was in 2000. Man City’s last six home wins over Newcastle were all by 2+ goals.
Back over 2.5 goals at 1.40 (Betfair)
The last nine league meetings between the two at this venue went over 2.5 goals. Over the last 12 months, 17 of Man City’s 19 home EPL fixtures went over 2.5 goals.
