Match Week 14

It doesn’t get any bigger than Saturday in the EPL.  Two of the top three teams will renew their rivalry when Chelsea heads north to the Etihad to take on Manchester City.  However that’s not the only match of the weekend that offers value to bettors so James Kempton is here like always to give you the skinny on every single fixture. Manchester City v Chelsea Man City -0.25 and 2.75 goals Chelsea have been very impressive in recent weeks and I would not want to take them on at present, especially when they are receiving a start on the handicap. City have only kept clean sheets against Bournemouth and West Brom this season. In their last three games they’ve allowed the might of Burnley, Crystal Palace and Middlesbrough to breach their backline. This should be a great game full of high press from both teams and I will side with the away side to gain at least a share of the spoils. Crystal Palace v Southampton Southampton -0.25 and 2.5 goals Siding with the home team here is a difficult proposition given the fact they conceded five goals away at Swansea last weekend. Those goals take the tally to seventeen goals finding their way into Palace’s net in their last five EPL outings. Southampton are a solid unit but trusting them giving up a start on the handicap is too much of an ask for me despite Palace’s woeful recent form. There has not been a draw in the last fourteen meetings of the teams so history suggests there will be a winner. If you can work it out then please let me know! Stoke City v Burnley Stoke -0.75 and 2.5 goals Burnley won this fixture 2-1 last time they were in the...

Match Week 13

It might be a holiday weekend here in the states focused on football but across the pond the EPL action rests for nobody.  To help us make sense of the confusion is James Kempton with his complete breakdown of every fixture this weekend. Burnley v Manchester City Man City -1.5 goals and 3 goals City have scored fifteen goals in six road games this season and the only time they did not score at least twice was in their 2-0 defeat at Spurs. Despite the best laid plans of inferior EPL teams on home soil, at some point they come out of their defensive shape and City shred them. I lean City but laying one and a half goals on the road here is a big ask as Burnley have been competitive at home this season. Hull City v West Bromwich Albion PK and 2.25 goals This is one of those games that Hull will identify as a “can win” game but conceding three goals to Sunderland last weekend must put some doubt in their mind. The fact their opponent scored four times on Monday Night Football should also concern the home team with the Baggies entering this game riding the crest of the wave. Off of a PK line I sense the value is with the Baggies but if this trends to West Brom -0.25 then I may just be tempted by the Tigers. Leicester City v Middlesbrough Leicester -0.5 and 2.25 goals Leicester are 10-3-1 at home over this season and last against sides in the bottom half but Middlesbrough will be a tough nut to crack. The away team have conceded more than once in a game in just three fixtures this season and have allowed just four goals in their...

Match Week 12

International break be damned…it’s time the boys started back on the domestic grind.  For those of us stateside we’re all thankful that Team USA has months to rehab its image.  However in the interim our EPL guru James Kempton offers his thoughts on all the weekend’s biggest fixtures. Manchester United v Arsenal PK and 2.5 goals It is rare that you can obtain United off of a PK line on home soil. Given Arsenal’s poor record here, just one win in their last thirteen trips, IT makes them the logical side to take. That said they’ve already lost to Man City and also drawn with Stoke and Burnley at Old Trafford this campaign. Mourinho revels in these battles with Wenger and I just cannot see Arsenal winning this match under any circumstance. I lean to United as I sense Jose will set his team up to frustrate Arsenal knowing full well that Arsene Wenger will not alter his tactics. Crystal Palace v Manchester City Man City -1 and 3 goals Man City have won six of the seven meetings of the sides since December 2013 with four of those six City wins coming by more than one goal. After a lightening quick start to the season City have won just one of their last five games and bar the four goals they scored at West Brom scored just three in the other of those four matches. If City are not wasteful in front of goal they could cover this line easily but with their key players returning from all over the world after international duty will they be as sharp as usual? City or pass but it will probably be pass for me. Everton v Swansea City Everton -1 and 2.75 goals Swansea won...

Match Week 11

It’s time for your weekly football fix.  EPL insider James Kempton is here to give you his thoughts on every single Match Week 11 fixture Bournemouth v Sunderland Bournemouth -0.75 and 2.5 goals Can you bet Bournemouth as over half of a goal favourite against any EPL team? I am not sure but given the fact Sunderland are 0-1-4 on their travels you cannot support the away team either. The Mackems have conceded only seven goals in those five away trips so with this goal line set at 2.5 I will take them to keep it tight and have a piece of the under.  Burnley v Crystal Palace Crystal Palace -0.25 and 2.25 goals The sides have met eight times in Championship and EPL action since September 2010 and under 2.5 goals is 6-2. Palace did win this trip though in January 2015 in a high scoring 3-2 away win. The home team are 3-1-2 on home soil this season with just an opening day defeat to Swansea and a recent loss to Arsenal being inflicted on them at Turf Moor. I like the home team here. Manchester City v Middlesbrough Man City -1.75 and 3 goals Can Middlesbrough replicate that recent performance at the Emirates where they earned a goalless draw? It is a big ask but I will be very interested to see the team news going into this game. This game for City comes on the back of a big Champions League game against Barcelona and ahead of a World Cup qualifying week which will see a lot of their players jet across the world on international duty. Will Guardiola mix his line up? Until I see the line ups I couldn’t possibly think of betting this game and even then...

Match Week 10

It’s another weekend of EPL matches sure to get those wagering juices flowing.  This might not be the sexiest slate of games on paper but that won’t stop our EPL insider James Kempton from offering his thoughts on everything Premier League to make you money. Sunderland v Arsenal Arsenal -1.25 and 3 goals Arsenal are unbeaten in the last nine total meetings of the sides with the Mackems only managing to net four goals in those nine games. Arsenal have won by more than a full goal in five of those but last season were held to a goalless draw at the Stadium of Light. After last weekends’ home draw with Middlesbrough it is a brave man who backs Arsenal giving up more than a full goal especially ahead of an away game in the Champions League. Do we trust Sunderland? No.  Manchester United v Burnley Man Utd -2 and 2.75 goals The sides have met twice in EPL action in the 2009-10 and 2014-15 season. On each occasion United ran out comfortable winners as they registered a 3-1 win in February 2015 and 3-0 in January 2010.  We all know how Jose uses deflectionary tactics and here Burnley look perfect fodder for such a response after that pathetic United display at Stamford Bridge. Burnley have already lost by two goals at Southampton and by three goals at Chelsea and Leicester already this season on the road. I can’t believe I am saying this but even laying two goals I really like the home team.  Middlesbrough v Bournemouth PK and 2.25 goals Middlesbrough have scored just four goals in their last seven EPL games and have not scored more than once at home all season. Very quietly Eddie Howe’s men have gone 3-3-1 in...
