Newcastle vs. Crystal Palace

Tuesday 2nd February, 08:15 PM Kick-Off

St. James Park

Dreaded Road Trip for Palace

Crystal Palace surprised punters this past weekend when they could clinch a 1-0 victory versus Wolverhampton Wanderers.

However, this does not dispel their horrible run of form before this home win and while on their travels Palace has been one of the worst away sides in the division.

Steve Bruce has been under scrutiny and the watchful eye of Newcastle's club board but with a 0-2 away win at Everton, the pressure has since eased.

Form, Mentality, Premier League Odds and Trends

  • Palace has suffered defeat in five of their previous eight away days.

  • Palace has lost three of their previous four away games.

  • Palace has lost ¾ of their previous visits to St James Park.

  • Newcastle defeated Palace away from home in the reverse fixture.

Final Thoughts| Premier League Betting Tips

Whilst the mood inside the Palace locker room should be optimistic after this weekend when travelling to face other clubs, Palace has been abysmal. Palace has secured six points playing on the road versus Sheffield United & Fulham, two of the most underperforming EPL teams.

Newcastle has returned to a safer place in the win column, and with the facts laid out, it's hard to avoid taking the value with them. They have won two of their previous three meetings with Palace and have also won three of their last four games played at St James Park in all competitions.

Newcastle vs. Crystal Palace Score prediction: Newcastle 1 – Crystal Palace 0

Burnley vs. Manchester City

Wednesday 3rd February, 06:00 PM Kick-Off

Turf Moor

City Cannot Be Stopped

Through Burnley's downfall, they often remain consistent in defence, and there are not many squads who find it easy versus Sean Dyche's team. But with that said, Manchester City has been their kryptonite.

When City removed Burnley from the Carabao Cup this past November, it became apparent that Burnley would struggle against them in domestic action.

Final Thoughts| Premier League Betting Tips

From their rocky start in the EPL 2020/2021 season, Manchester City is now OK. They have claimed eight consecutive EPL victories and twelve in total (all competitions). Another visit to Burnley will not be too daunting as the league leaders have already dispatched eight goals past their opponents this term.

Not only has Pep Guardiola's squad dominated their previous twelve fixtures, all but one of those games saw a clean sheet in favour of City.

Burnley vs. Manchester City prediction: Burnley 0 – Manchester City 3

Liverpool vs. Brighton

Wednesday 3rd February, 08:00 PM Kick-Off


Injury Plagued but Momentum is Present

Liverpool's injury woes continue to worsen, and through positive results, how far can the team go without their key players.

Wins over Tottenham and West Ham is certainly a confidence booster, but with Brighton collecting three points from Spurs this past weekend we should expect a difficult test for Klopp when Brighton visit Anfield.

Liverpool's starting line-up will continue to suffer, Sadio Mane, Fabinho, and Joel Matip have joined the lengthy number of absences for Jurgen Klopp and his EPL title defence.

Final Thoughts| Premier League Betting Tips

Brighton looked like a top-ten squad in their previous encounter with Tottenham, and their stubborn defence doesn't allow many teams to punish the goal net. With an excellent historic record versus Liverpool, they will fancy their chances against mid-week.

The available odds- are no bother, we should expect a defence-tight Brighton squad to halt Liverpool's plans and keep this game tight. This leads us straight to the goal market.

Liverpool vs. Brighton Score prediction: Liverpool 2 - Brighton 0
