The following are betting tips for selected fixtures in Gameweek 24 of the 2023/24 English Premier League. Where two or more options are provided for the same tip, pick the one that best suits your risk appetite.
Tottenham vs. Brighton
Over 2.5 goals at 1.41 (Unibet)
Tottenham’s average total score this season is 3.7, while Brighton’s average total is 3.5. Thirteen of Tottenham’s last fourteen EPL fixtures went over 2.5 goals and each of their last five went over 3.5. Brighton’s last two games went over 3.5 goals and their last fixture against Tottenham saw six total goals.
Wolves vs. Brentford
Wolves in the head-to-head at at 2.18 (Betfair)
Wolves bring 4-1-1 form into this clash and they won their two most recent fixtures against Brentford by a combined six goals to one. Brentford limp into this fixture in 1-0-6 form. Brentford have gone 2-1-7 away from home this season, which is the third worst away record in the league.
Luton vs. Sheffield Utd
Luton in the head-to-head at at 1.80 (Betfair)
Luton bring a respectable 3-2-1 form into this clash and they have scored four goals in each of their last two fixtures. Sheffield United have lost eight of their last eleven games and they have the league-worst 0-2-9 away record this season. Luton have already beaten Sheffield United away from home this campaign.
Crystal Palace vs. Chelsea
Chelsea in the head-to-head at at 2.00 (Betfair)
Crystal Palace are a Jekyll and Hyde team and it’s no secret as to the root cause. They are a mid-table side when Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise are both fit, and a relegation-quality side when one or both of those players isn’t available. At the time of writing Eze isn’t expected to play in this match and Olise is expected to be out for up to two months. The additional recent injury of Marc Guehi and the long-term injury to Cheick Doucoure further scuttles their chances. Chelsea are having a poor season by their standards, but they are still faring better than Palace and Chelsea boast a 12-game winning streak against the Eagles. Over the last decade, Chelsea have gone 8-0-2 at Selhurst Park. Chelsea do have the distraction of a midweek FA Cup clash against Aston Villa, but given Palace’s terrible form guide in the absence of Eze and Olise, I’m still happy to back the visitors.
