Top Bets in the Premier League Today
We are not including it in our Premier League betting guide as an official tip as we are worried about lack of goals from Wolves – but they should beat a Watford side that has lost their last four and so Premier League odds on Wolves at 1.9 should be a decent bet.
We think Burnley v Everton is worth betting the draw at nice Premier League odds of 3.3 – Burnley have drawn four of the last five and have only won once this season – Everton were absolutely terrible but are just starting to get some results together and look more the team we know they can be.
Spurs are probably worth betting for a home win against Crystal Palace at 1.81 as they are improving under Conte.
Do check out our Championship betting guide, as there is some incredible value in the market and readers are making big money with our expert tips and predictions – just like with our Premier League betting guides.
Sunday 26th December Premier League Betting Guide
Liverpool v Leeds Betting Guide
Liverpool have lost some ground to Manchester City, mainly because City have been insanely good. But for refereeing decisions they could have beaten Spurs last time. Their concern? This is Mo Salah’s and Sadio Mane’s last game before departing for AFCON (if not cancelled).
Salah has been involved in 24 goals this season – 15 scored, 9 assists – more than any Premier League player since Alan Shearer 27 years ago!
Liverpool have great scoring options, but in an incredibly tight title race, Salah’s absence could be crucial. Arguably, he is the world’s best player now.
Leeds have lost their last three and are being dragged into the relegation fight.
Home win: 1.17
Away win: 20
Eagle’s Premier League betting prediction: Home win
Eagle’s EPL pro betting tip: There’s no value in betting the home win. Salah to score any time before saying goodbye at Premier League odds of 1.44 is worth betting against this defence. Also bet at Premier League odds of 1.53 over 2.5 home goals – the Reds have scored 12 in their last four Premier League homes while Leeds have conceded 16 goals over their last four Premiership matches
Rather than words, our table below shows just how good City have been lately:

Manchester City v Leicester
So on every key metric, Man City are improving – and were already brilliant.
Bets in this match are all about goals.
Leicester are second only to Liverpool in being involved in the most over 2.5 goal matches (12 of 16). They have scored and conceded 27 goals in 16 Premier League games.
City have scored 44, conceding 9 in 18 Premiership games.
That’s 107 goals between them, in 34 games – over three goals a game.
Home win: 1.23
Away win: 17.0
Eagle’s Premier League betting prediction: Home win
Eagle’s pro EPL tip:Over 2.5 goals in the game at Premiership odds of 1.47. Over 2.5 City goals against leaky Leicester defence 1.8
Norwich v Arsenal Guide
Our Premier League betting guides have tipped Arsenal for ages now – amazingly for a club rock bottom early on, they are now 4th in the Premiership.
In their 4-1 demolition of Leeds they looked superb, followed by a 5-1 destruction of Division One Sunderland in the EFL Cup: four wins on the spin in all competitions.
Apart from their blip against Everton they have been ruthless beating lowly placed clubs.
And they don’t get more lowly than Norwich.
The Canaries had a small new-manager bounce with a win (finally) and two draws, but since then three defeats in a row.
Home win: 8.00
Away win: 1.47
Eagle’s Premier League betting prediction: Away win
Eagle’s EPL pro tip: Enough value in the bet given how good Arsenal are and how poor Norwich are. We looked at over 1.5 away goals but at Premier League odds of 1.57 there isn’t a great return
West Ham v Southampton Predictions & Tips
West Ham’s form has dipped since Eagle’s Premier League betting guide was successfully tipping them to three points every matchday, now down to 11th in our Premiership form table over five games.
But it pays to look behind the stats.
Two recent league defeats have dented their record but they were away to Man City (unplayable currently) and Arsenal, playing really well.
The Hammers are unbeaten at home since the start of October, and their run of recent league home matches is 3-2 victory over Chelsea, 1-1 draw with Brighton, 3-2 win over Liverpool and a 1-0 win over Spurs. There aren’t many teams that will beat Chelsea and Liverpool this season so this Premier League betting guide contends West Ham at home have been under-priced here.
Southampton have managed some decent draws but when they have travelled to top clubs lately, they have suffered (0-3 at Arsenal, 0-4 to Liverpool).
They have also conceded 14 in their last six.
Home win: 1.87
Away win: 4.4
Eagle’s Premier League Betting prediction: Home win
Eagle’s EPL pro tip: Home win
Betting on Aston Villa v Chelsea ?
A month ago this Premier League betting guide would have chalked this up as an easy three points. Not now.
Gerrard has made Villa much harder to beat with three wins in five and two defeats – to Liverpool and Manchester City.
Chelsea only drew with Wolves and Everton and lost to West Ham. Their only recent victories have been away to Leeds and home to Watford.
We think Villa will be competitive in this and there are several great value Premier League bets.
Home win: 5.5
Away win: 1.75
Eagle’s Premier League Betting prediction: Draw
Eagle’s EPL pro tip: Our Premier League betting guide has too many tempting tips! The straight draw is cracking odds. But we really like Aston Villa with a handicap of +2 at Premiership odds of 1.44. We are also having a smaller bet draw no bet Villa at 4. Its Christmas!
