Tuesday Premier League Picks
1u – Leeds @ -105
- Newcastle have failed to score in 5 of their last 6 Premier League games
There aren't many fanbases which dislike their manager as much as the Newcastle fans do Steve Bruce. Pressure is almost boiling over for the manager but with the ownership of the club more interested in saving money than winning games, it seems likely he'll continue in the job for a little longer at least. If you've been within earshot of a Newcastle fan this season you'll know how impotent they are in attack. They can't score and their brand of play is uninspiring and uncreative. I'm always a little nervy to back Leeds but I can't see them leaving St James Park with anything but three points against this dreadful team.
1u – Under 2.5 Goals @ +105
- There have been Under 2.5 Goals in Southampton's last 6 Premier League games
Southampton have been a thorn in the side for the Premier League's bigger clubs this season, putting in a string of incredible performances, which sees them sitting in 10th in the league, 2 points ahead of today's opponents Arsenal but with a game in hand. Southampton beat Arsenal 1-0 this past weekend in the FA Cup, which gives us an idea of how close these sides are, but it's the Premier League form that we're looking at here. Both teams are much improved defensively this season. Southampton have a clean sheet in 6 of their past 8 home games in the league. Arsenal come in to this with 4 consecutive clean sheets in the league. Those are real indicators that this will be low scoring and to get over even money looks like a real steal.
1u - Draw/Man City @ +370
- There have been under 2.5 goals scored in 13 of Man City's last 16 Premier League games
We've talked about this before but Man City aren't the highscoring team that they used to be. That could be a problem against West Brom, with "Big Sam" Allardyce set to put 11 men behind the ball and look to frustrate City. Ultimately, Man City should have too much and will win this game but at +370 I've got to back the scores being tied at halftime before tired legs and some substitutions change the game for Pep Guardiola's men.
