We have reached gameweek 28 in the Premier League and once again there are a number of huge fixtures. Things are slipping away for Norwich as they battle for their Premier League safety, but can they claim a much needed three points as they start the weekend off at home to Leicester? Elsewhere, Brighton and Crystal Palace renew their rivalry, while Liverpool look to keep their incredible winning run going at Watford.
At LeoVegas, we provide Premier League betting tips for all matches across the season. We also have the latest online sports betting odds for other matches across the top leagues, with football betting tips markets stretching from match-winner to building your own bet.
Now, here are some of our selected tips & odds for the Premier League Gameweek 28.
Ask most people and they’ll tell you that Norwich City are pretty much doomed for relegation at this point. Even on the pitch it looks like they may have run out of fight now, as their 3-0 defeat at Wolves could have been even heavier by the end. Leicester are having a great season of course, and look to have Champions League football all but sewn up. This may not be as easy for Leicester as some may think, as they failed to beat the Canaries in the reverse fixture, but this time around they should be too strong.
This is one of the more bizarre rivalries in English football, as the M23 and 45 miles separate Brighton and Crystal Palace. Brighton will still be looking over their shoulder and need to start burying chances that their high amounts of possession demand. Palace got their first Premier League win of 2020 at home to a poor Newcastle side last week but we’re not expecting a free flowing or high scoring game. The reverse fixture was 1-1 and this could well be something similar.
Trying to work out what is going on at West Ham is like completing the world’s most complex Rubik's Cube. Hiring David Moyes once again just hasn’t worked and they have plenty of difficult fixtures to come too. Sitting in the bottom three, the Hammer’s fans are rightfully seething. Southampton ended a short poor patch with an easy 2-0 win at home to Aston Villa where they completely dominated the game. They will be dangerous going forward and we all know what West Ham’s defence is like.
It is doubtful that this game will be the most exciting of the weekend. Many pundits are tipping a 0-0 result for this game and the chances of that could be pretty high. That being said, Burnley have been in good form recently and have found a way to get results. As mentioned, Newcastle looked abysmal against Palace and just can’t score goals. None of their strikers look like hitting the back of the net recently.
A few weeks ago, things were looking bleak for Bournemouth as they were on a shocking run of form. That has changed a little bit though, as they have managed to put together two home wins in a row and it seems like the home form might have to be the saviour. The Cherries can count themselves extremely unlucky with some VAR calls last week, but they’ll need to be better against a Chelsea side that were handed a humiliating defeat in the Champions League against Bayern. It’s not been a great few days for Frank Lampard and he’ll hope to get a win here, with a new found reliance on once frozen out Olivier Giroud.
The late kick off on Saturday sees a Liverpool side that have won 26 of 27 matches travel to a Watford side that are second bottom of the league. It should be a formality for the Reds then, no? Well, Premier League football is usually not that simple but in the case of Liverpool this season there is the argument that things are too easy. After an early resurgence under Nigel Pearson, the wheels seem to have completely fallen off for the Hornets.
The most common feature of Everton’s recent matches is that both teams tend to score. This was in full effect last week in a thriller at Arsenal, which the Toffees ended up losing 3-2. Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison are in great form and will both be a massive threat to this Man United defence. The main threat for the Red Devils will undoubtedly be Bruno Fernandes, who is now taking all set pieces including penalties. Odion Ighalo also got off the mark for them in the Europa League. This should, in theory, be a massively entertaining game. Fingers crossed.
A lot has been written about the lack of goal threat now that Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min are injured for the long term. It would appear then that the race for Champions League qualification is going to be a struggle for them, and a match like this one poses a dangerous threat. Wolves are going well and are actually only one point behind Spurs. After progression in the Europa League, Nuno’s men will be full of confidence and actually won this fixture 3-1 last season.
