English Premier League, Betting Preview 31 October

October 30, 2020

There are 3 English Premier League matches taking place on Saturday and we take a look at each of them from a betting angle.


Sheffield United are second from bottom on the table with just 1 point from their opening 6 matches.  They competed well against Liverpool away last time out, losing 2-1 and both teams have found the net in Sheffield United’s previous 3 matches.

Manchester City still have a game in hand, but they are currently 13th on the table, 5 points behind leaders Everton.  They drew 1-1 away at West Ham last time out and their previous away game was also a 1-1 draw at Leeds.  Both teams have found the net in 4 out of the 5 Manchester City fixtures this season.

City won this fixture 1-0 last season.


Sheffield United 31/4

Draw 19/4

Manchester City 7/20

Suggested Bet:  Both teams to score, YES, at 8/10

City’s season has been characterised by defence that is letting more goals in than previously and although I see them winning this game I think Sheffield United can get on the score sheet.

BURNLEY v CHELSEA – Click here to bet

Burnley are 18th on the log having taken just 1 point from their 5 matches to date.  They were beaten 1-0 by Tottenham at home last time out and their only previous home match was also a 1-0 defeat to Southampton.

Chelsea are 10th on the table and have drawn 3 and lost 1 of their last 4 matches, most recently playing to a goalless draw at Old Trafford against Manchester United.

Chelsea have scored 4 goals in their last two visits to Burnley.


Burnley 5/1

Draw 7/2

Chelsea 11/20

Suggested Bet:  Goals away team, 3 or more at 17/10

Chelsea have scored 3 goals or more in 4 of their 6 matches this season and as mentioned above they have done it on their last 2 visits to Burnley.

LIVERPOOL v WEST HAM – Click here to bet

Liverpool are 2nd on the table despite taking just 1 win from their last 3 matches.  That came at home against Sheffield United where they won 2-1, prior to that they drew 2-2 away at Everton and were beaten 7-2 away by Villa.  They do have a 100% home record this season winning all 3 games and scoring 9 goals while conceding 5.

West Ham are 12th on the table and in their last 4 matches they have drawn twice and won twice, most recently getting a credible 1-1 home draw against Manchester City.  On the road they have scored 7 goals while conceding 5.

Liverpool won this fixture 3-2 last season and in the previous 2 meetings at Anfield scored 4 goals on each occasion.



Liverpool 4/10

Draw 9/2

West Ham 23/4


Suggested Bet:  Handicap, Liverpool (-1), the draw @31/10

For this bet to arrive Liverpool need to win by 1 goal exactly and given that they are not quite on top form in my opinion and West Ham are playing well I think it is a very likely outcome.
