Wolverhampton vs. West Bromwich Albion

Saturday, January 16th, 2021 - 12:30 PM Kick-Off at Molineux Stadium

Bottom Half Clash

Nuno Espirito Santo is having the worst season since his arrival as the manager for Wolves. Injuries and the Covid-19 jinx are severely affecting his squad's results. A sheer lack of goals is hurting the club, but some relief should come in this week's fixture versus West Brom.

WBA are three points shy of the bottom position. They currently sit in 19th with a mere eight points. The uphill battle for survival has begun in 2021 with half the seasons' fixtures already done with.

Form, Mentality, Premier League Odds & Trends

  • Wolverhampton is undefeated in seven of their previous eight EPL home fixtures.
  • Under 2.5 goals have been scored in seven of Wolves' previous nine EPL matches.
  • Wolves have only managed one win from their previous seven EPL games.
  • West Brom has scored an embarrassing one goal across their previous four EPL fixtures.

Final Thoughts| Premier League Betting Tips

A 0-5 versus Leeds followed by a 0-4 loss to Arsenal doesn't leave WBA in a position of hope in their travels to the Midlands this weekend.

It's slowly becoming evident that Raul Jimenez's presence up-front is desperately missed. However, with a home record that still isn't too shabby, we should expect Wolves to take advantage of an even weaker opposition in West Brom.

Score Prediction: Wolves 2 – WBA 0

Fulham vs. Chelsea

Saturday, January 16th, 2021 - 05:30 PM Kick-Off at Craven Cottage

London Derby

Fulham is finding a small amount of momentum by securing at least one point through their previous five games. A point claimed in Tottenham was a momentum builder. Still, the Cottagers remain in the bottom three of the division.

Chelsea has lost their pre-Christmas form. One win from their previous six games is becoming notable. Title contention talk isn't as prominent with a slip to ninth in the table as the Blues continue to neglect their defence.

Final Thoughts| Premier League Betting Tips

Fulham return from a late notice, a mid-week encounter with Tottenham – to return against Chelsea and grab a result is a tough-ask.

Expect the Blues to collect all three points, but not without a strong push in the local derby encounter.

Score Prediction: WBA 1 – Aston Villa 2

Sheffield United vs. Tottenham

Sunday, January 17th, 2021 - 02:00 PM Kick-Off at Bramall Lane

Easy Pickings for Mourinho

Fortunately for Tottenham, their recent slip in form should not matter against the league's worst team, Sheffield United.

Sheffield captured their first win of the season, but not without a red card and a penalty to assist them. Can we rely on luck against an elite Spurs squad?

Form, Mentality, Premier League Odds & Trends

  • Tottenham have lost one EPL fixture away from home this term.
  • Sheffield United is the lowest-scoring team in the division.
  • Sheffield United is bottom of the Premier League & has lost 15/18 games this season.
  • Tottenham has only conceded seven goals in their eight away days.

Final Thoughts| Premier League Betting Tips

Tottenham was expecting a full three points versus Fulham this past week, but plans didn't work out. After dropping six points from their previous eight fixtures there's no better time to collect a comfortable win.

The lowest-scoring team versus the league's most formidable defence. We should see a low-scoring, easy win for the North London club.

The available odds on Tottenham are quite fair. However, if we add the under market to our bet, we can increase our value.

Score Prediction: Sheffield 0 – Spurs 2

Betting Prediction: Tottenham win & under 3.5 goals 2.25 [+125] at Betway
