It’s a short run of games this weekend in the English Premier League as many of the teams featured will try to catch up with the rest in the number of games played. Of the four matches two of them can strike the bettors eye as interesting betting options, Fulham vs Leeds United and West Ham vs Arsenal.
Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds side is always fun to watch and is always a bit of a wild card, Leeds could beat an opponent 5-0 then drop a match by the same score line. For Fulham time is running out for them to move out of the drop zone and need to start winning badly.
West Ham and Arsenal is a match of both teams trying to finish as high up in the standings as possible, for West Ham a good winning streak might have them sneak into the Champions League. Here are some of the betting options for these PL matches
Fulham vs Leeds United
Strangely Fulham is the odds-on favorite paying out +148 for a win, Leeds who are inconsistent despite all their excitement pay out +188. The reason why Leeds is the underdog is because they have a poor road form against London teams, they have not won any of their 16 away games in London.
Leeds is a goal machine, and it would be a wise to place a bet on Patrick Bamford to be the game’s first goal scorer, at +540 it could be a safe bet. Betting on the over 3.5 is also not out of the question, Leeds scores a lot of goals, but also give them up, at +255 it is also a good bet.
West Ham vs Arsenal
Arsenal are the favorites in this tight clash in the Premier League. At +140 the Gunners are looking to climb the standings after winning 2 of their last 3. West Ham on the other hand are losers of their last 2 out of 3. West Ham have a poor history against Arsenal winners of only three of 24 matches. West Ham have also lost the most Premier League games against Arsenal than any opponent, so it’s stacked against them.
This match could very well have at least 2.5 goals scored so betting on the over at -113 may not be all that enticing, but it could be a quick way to ensure some cash on the game. A tie for this match may not be out of the question as West Ham is a much better version than in years past and Arsenal has much of their focus on Europa League. A tie is paying out +255 which could be a good wager as
An interesting parlay for these two games would be a Leeds win and a tie between Arsenal and West Ham. At $100 the bettor stands to win $1022. Keep up with all the sports betting and Premier League news right here at Bolavip!
