There aren’t many Premier League matches on the schedule this weekend due to the FA Cup quarterfinals, but there is still a considerable amount of value to be found in betting. In this article we identify the best odds in the industry with our predictions for each match.
SATURDAY, MARCH 11
Everton vs. West Bromwich Albion
Both of these teams lost last weekend, and with both, in seventh and eighth, perhaps beginning to speculate that European football might be beyond them, this match does not have the hallmarks of a thriller. Everton has the stronger squad, but West Brom has arguably made more of its resources.
Between them, the fans of these clubs have seen 15 draws in the league this season, and this may well be another.
Top Bet: 3/1 with BetFred for a draw
Hull City vs. Swansea City
Swansea, with four wins from six matches, has climbed closer to safety from relegation, while Hull, in spite of some valiant efforts in recent months, looks like its early-season form is too much of an obstacle to overcome.
This is an essential match for both teams, and whichever wins this will gather huge optimism from doing so. Swansea has a measurably stronger squad available, and ought to have the firepower to beat Hull.
Top Bet: 21/10 with Betway for Swansea to win
Bournemouth vs. West Ham United
The Cherries have not won a game of football in 2017, and West Ham, unbeaten in the last three, are looking good for a top-half finish. It’s hard to see beyond a Hammers victory at the moment, especially with the possibility of Andy Carroll being back to fitness.
Top Bet: 2/1 with Betfair for a West Ham win
SUNDAY, MARCH 12
Liverpool vs. Burnley
Liverpool showed against Arsenal that, when it comes to playing top opposition and the adrenaline is up, there are few matches for the team at Anfield. However, it’s against teams lower down the table that the Liverpool players have more routinely struggled.
Burnley, although not having won in four matches, is a tough opponent, and may restrict Liverpool to a one- or two-goal margin of victory.
Top Bet: 3/1 with Ladbrokes for Liverpool to win by one goal
