EPL Round Up Mar17

EPL Round Up

There’s not a weekend that goes by where our EPL Insider fails to bring the goods.  James Kempton provides his complete game capsules for a busy weekend in the Premier the week before teams break camp for international duty. West Bromwich Albion v Arsenal Arsenal -0.75 and 2.75 goals Arsenal have not won any of their last seven trips to the Hawthornes by more than one goal. Under 2.5 goals is on a 7-3 run when these sides meet in all competitions with just one of those games seeing more than three goals. Having seen Arsenal in person myself last weekend I have to say no Premiership side should fear them, unless Sanchez is on the ball! Its worrying though for potential Baggies backers that they’ve lost 2-0 and 3-0 in their last two games. One to miss for me. Crystal Palace v Watford Crystal Palace -0.5 and 2.25 goals It was 1-1 when the sides met earlier in the season and Yes on Both Teams To Score is 5-2 since August 2011. These are two teams that I just cannot trust and in these seemingly tense relegation type battles you’re usually attracted to the under on the goals line even if it is set at 2.25 goals. Watford have kept just one clean sheet though since the end of October and that was against Middlesbrough! They’ve scored ten goals themselves in their last six EPL outings so with the line set at 2.25 I’m almost tempted to take a piece of the over.  Everton v Hull City Everton -1 and 2.5 goals Marco Silva has Hull playing a far better game from a tactical perspective since he took over the role as Head Coach and they are 3-2-3 in their last eight EPL outings....

EPL Weekend Round-Up Mar10

EPL Weekend Round-Up

It’s a Friday tradition around here during the EPL season and our insider provides all the nuggets to make you better informed.  Also, forgive Mr Kempton if he gets a little giddy talking about his local side trying to do the unthinkable and progressive further in the FA Cup.  Take his preview on THAT match with a grain of salt! Bournemouth v West Ham United PK and 2.75 goals Bournemouth have been struggling of late but last weekend’s tetchy 1-1 draw at Old Trafford could be a turning point for Eddie Howe’s men. Bournemouth haven’t kept many clean sheets of late whilst West Ham have only failed to score against Leicester, Man City, and Man Utd over their last seventeen EPL games. I like a bit of the over here.  Everton v West Bromwich Albion Everton -0.75 and 2.5 goals Everton won 2-1 at the Hawthornes earlier this season but the Baggies have kept three consecutive clean sheets from their EPL trips to Goodison Park. They won this fixture 1-0 last season with the previous two trips ending goalless. That shock loss last week puts me off West Brom here even getting more than half a goal. Does mid table obscurity see them already thinking of the beach? One to pass on. Hull City v Swansea City Hull -0.25 and 2.25 goals Under 2.5 goals is 6-1 when the sides have met since December 2013 and I see another cagey game here. Hull just don’t look capable of scoring more than once in a game whilst Swansea will be keen to offer the home side no encouragement at all. The Swans have netted in seven of their last eight games and that just gives them the edge in my book for this one. Back...

EPL Weekend Round-Up Mar03

EPL Weekend Round-Up

IT’S TIME…for your weekly dose of Premier League intel from James Kempton.  As always he’s here to share his thoughts on all of the week’s biggest matches (and some not so big ones) but with one thing in mind; making you money. Manchester United v Bournemouth Manchester United -1.75 and 3 goals United won this fixture 3-1 last season and each of the three EPL meetings of the sides has seen a Yes on Both Teams To Score and overs wager cash. Those trends plus the recent decline in the fortunes of the Cherries suggest that the over 3 goals bet could offer some value. Set at United -1.75 the match market doesn’t appeal to me greatly especially given the way Bournemouth have shown they can generate chances even against the elite teams.  Leicester City v Hull City Leicester -0.5 and 2.25 goals Hull started the Leicester decline with that 2-1 win on EPL opening day this season. I’m not convinced though that this Foxes revival that started on MNF will continue but I’m not prepared to get in the way here at just -0.5 on the home win. A game to leave alone completely and if you want to here my full thoughts on the Leicester situation then listen to my weekly EPL podcast with @petenordsted where I pull no punches! Stoke City v Middlesbrough Stoke -0.5 and 2 goals It was one apiece when the sides met in August at the Riverside and Middlesbrough will look to grind out a result. It’s unlikely that Mark Hughes will pick the same old workmanlike looking side that he did for their trip to White Hart Lane last Sunday where they were pummeled. I lean to the home team but would want to see a...

EPL Weekend Round-Up Feb24

EPL Weekend Round-Up

The FA Cup never ceases to offer it’s share of Cinderella stories.  However fans of the EPL live for league play and this weekend there should be drama in some unusual spots.  To break it all down by offering his favorite betting angles is James Kempton sharing analysis as only he can. Chelsea v Swansea City Chelsea -1.75 and 3 goals Swansea are an impressive well organised outfit now under Paul Clement and they will be no pushovers in a rematch of that 2-2 draw on opening day last season. It’s hard to make a case that Swansea will take anything outright from this game but do they offer any value on the handicap line? A tentative lean to Swansea given their strong recent form but I sense the solidity of the Chelsea midfield two of Kante and Matic limits some of our slim value.  Crystal Palace v Middlesbrough Crystal Palace -0.25 and 2 goals Middlesbrough will look to keep the game tight, stay well organised, and play on the nervousness of the home crowd. Boro are eight games without a win but they’ve only conceded eight goals in their last nine EPL games. We keep saying Palace will be safe from the drop as they have Big Sam but four points and five goals in their last ten, yes ten, EPL matches suggests they are deep in the relegation mire. Boro for me plus a quarter of a goal as I just sense they will make less mistakes than their hosts.  Everton v Sunderland Everton -1.25 and 2.75 goals David Moyes’ side are a right Jekyll and Hyde bunch and here he takes a squad full of ageing Everton veterans back to Goodison Park. The home team are becoming the kind of reliable...

Match Week 25 Feb10

Match Week 25

Another week and more breathing room atop the table for Chelsea.  There won’t be drama for the EPL crown this year (barring a collapse) but there’s still plenty of money to be made each week.  James Kempton is here to give you everything you need to know for making some cash this weekend. Arsenal v Hull City Arsenal -1.5 and 3 goals The sides have met nine times since December 2013 and Hull have failed to win a game while Arsenal have won by two or more goals on six occasions. This line priced at just -1.5 seems to be a quarter of a goal too short but the home club are, yet again, in complete disarray. When the Gunners are in desperation mode they usually find a way to win games when a state of emergency has been announced at the Emirates. Unders on the goal line is the only bet I’d consider making. Manchester United v Watford Man Utd -1.75 and 3 goals Watford’s two wins in their last two outings have propelled them to the verge of safety. Those six points earned could see Watford  take their eye off of the ball in what is essentially a free roll game for them. Another one to avoid for me as it’s difficult to gauge which gear this United team will elect to play in making covering this number a real challenge. Middlesbrough v Everton Everton -0.5 and 2.25 goals Everton won 3-1 at Goodison Park back in September and the teams come into this game on opposite trajectories. Middlesbrough were very workmanlike at White Hart Lane last week but at no point appeared capable of creating a clear cut chance. Everton, when they flow, are smooth to watch making for a typical...

Match Week 24 Feb02

Match Week 24

It might be all about the big game around these parts but life across the pond doesn’t stop in the EPL.  James Kempton is here to break down every single weekend fixture including the big match in London to start things off on Saturday. Chelsea v Arsenal Chelsea -0.5 and 2.75 goals The match of the weekend is the opening game of the card and Chelsea can all but kill off Arsenal’s feint title hopes in this game. Oh wait the Gunners did that to themselves midweek with a dismal home loss against Watford. The reliability of the home side make them the only possible side to take. This flimsy Gunners mental strength is set to be put to the test but if they do perform the home team know a draw is an adequate result. I lean to the home team and they should win.  Crystal Palace v Sunderland Crystal Palace -0.75 and 2.5 goals  Sam Allardyce hosts his old side and many of the loyal traveling faithful wish Big Sam was still in charge at the Stadium of Light. I can’t understand though how Palace can be more than half a goal favourite against anybody in the EPL. David Moyes’ bid to turn Sunderland into Everton 2007 is nearly complete so backing the away team is fraught with danger. They also tend to save their best performances for home soil so backers beware! Everton v Bournemouth Everton -0.75 and 2.75 goals Everton are a side I just cannot fathom and here they meet another team I consistently struggle to read. I lean to the away team here as I wouldn’t want to lay more than half a goal on them against anybody. The goal line looks a little too high for me...
