Aston Villa vs. Arsenal

Saturday, February 6th, 2021 - 12:15 PM Kick-Off at Villa Park

You Will Not Get Bored at Villa Park

Villa's previous outing to West Ham this past weekend did not return the result fans wanted, but the villains' on-pitch performance has been world-class.

Frontmen Jack Grealish & Ollie Watkins have an effortless workflow that has helped in the 15 shots per game that Villa has been registering.

The Gunners were not far behind Villa in miserable results this week, besides they travel to the West Midlands for a second time in seven days with the absence of David Luiz and Bernd Leno due to red cards shown versus Wolves.

Form, Mentality, Premier League Odds & Trends

  • Villa has defeated Arsenal in the teams' previous two encounters.
  • Villa has won two of their previous three home fixtures.
  • Over 2.5 goals and both teams to score has landed in Arsenal's previous five away games.

Final Thoughts| Premier League Betting Tips

Both Villa and Arsenal have provided some thrilling competitions in the new year, and we expect these trends to continue.

Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals makes complete sense with each team's attacking presence combined with their lacklustre defences.

Score Prediction: Aston Villa 2 – Arsenal 2

Burnley vs. Brighton

Saturday, February 6th, 2021 - 03:00 PM Kick-Off at Turf Moor

New Confidence Found by the Seaside

Graham Potter had a rocky 2020, but the new year has brought on fresh positivity for the Burnley boys as their relegation worries took a turn for the better. Defeating Tottenham and Liverpool consecutively should strike fear into the lower half of the table, and holding Manchester City to a 1-0 win was clear evidence of their defensive prowess.

Sean Dyche's Burnley squad is another team with a defensive structure worth paying attention to. Their battle with relegation has not been complete dismay because they've still conceded fewer goals than any other club around them.

Final Thoughts| Premier League Betting Tips

Both squads are building back from a questionable start to the season, defences are tightening up, and both managers will push to avoid dropping any crucial points. This puts me in a position where I believe both teams will settle for a draw and not want to risk losing all three.

Score Prediction: Burnley 0 – Brighton 0

Betting Prediction: Both teams to score/No & U 2.5 goals 1.91 [-110] @ William Hill

Fulham vs. West Ham

Saturday, February 6th, 2021 - 05:30 PM Kick-Off at Craven Cottage

The Overlooked in London

The Hammers are living up to their nickname and charging forward through the opposition this term. Aston Villa's dismantling sealed their 4th placed position in the table, and a London derby with relegation favourites Fulham looks to be another collectible three points.

It is no secret that Fulham is having a bad season, and facing up to West Ham's confidence will be a daunting task. Defeat to Leicester City extended Fulham's winless streak to eleven games, and now the eight-point gap into safety is bridging further away.

Final Thoughts| Premier League Betting Tips

The available odds on West Ham to win are holding some incredible value, the likes of Jesse Lingard & Antonio add an extra flair to the Hammers attack force and have been lighting up the pitch of recent.

Score Prediction: Fulham 0 – West Ham 2
