Premier League Tips – 2nd & 3rd April

Author: Published: March 31, 2022

Premier League TipsWell we made another profit last weekend with England’s 2-1 win over Switzerland, but let’s be honest £3.30 isn’t going to send us off on that all-expenses paid trip to the Maldives is it?

But look, a profit is a profit however small it is and it keeps up our record of now five sets of tips where I have posted positive returns, which is something to try and keep going for as long as possible, especially after a number of weeks when I drew a blank.

This weekend I am delighted to say that we are heading back to familiar territory as we return to the Premier League for the run in to the end of the season.

It should be an exciting final eight weeks or so of the season with just a point now separating Manchester City and Liverpool at the top of the table and with the two set to clash in the Premier League and an FA Cup Semi Final in April, plus the prospect of a Champions League final between the two as well, it could be a massively intriguing end to the campaign.

We will also see the run in for the battle for fourth place with Arsenal, Spurs, Manchester United, West Ham and Wolves all involved in that battle, as well as the battle for a Europa League and Europa Conference League place next season.

We have nine games taking place on Saturday and Sunday with one game on Monday night taking place between Crystal Palace and Arsenal and there are some intriguing matches to enjoy.

I’ve gone through the fixtures and come up with the following tips for this weekend’s action.

Football Betting Tips: Saturday 2nd April

Leeds United VS Southampton
02/04/2022 3:00 pm GMT

Key Stats

Leeds lie 16th in the table on 29 pts. Southampton are 11th on 35 points.
There have been just two draws between these two teams since 1997.
Southampton have scored 10 goals from set pieces this season (7th= in EPL)
Leeds have conceded more set piece goals than any other team this season (13).

Analysis

This should be a good game and one that promises a fair few goals. After struggling and seeing the end of Marcelo Bielsa’s reign at the club, Jesse Marsch came in and has seen his team win their last two games against Norwich and Wolves, where they came back from 2-0 down to claim a surprise 3-2 win at Molineux.

That result means the home side should be more confident ahead of this game against a Southampton side that has lost its last three. However, the Saints have had several runs like this over the course of the season and they have always been able to bounce back, often picking up a good result on the road.

Leeds are still very much in the relegation battle but Southampton have proven to be a tough team to beat over the course of the whole season and given that both teams are shipping goals and that Leeds concede lots from set pieces, I think that means James Ward Prowse is one to consider here.

The Saints midfielder has become one of the best dead ball experts in the Premier League both from free kicks and corners and it’s been a while since he landed a trademark free kick, so I am backing him to find the net in this game at any time.

Prediction

James Ward Prowse to score anytime - £10 returns £36.00

Man Utd VS Leicester
02/04/2022 5:30 pm GMT

Key Stats

United lie 6th in the table on 50 points, Leicester are 10th with 36 points.
United have lost the last three games against the Foxes in all competitions.
However, prior to that, United had won 19 of the previous 24 between the two teams.
Both teams have scored in all the last four games between the two.

Analysis

Goals have not been in short supply in the last few games between these teams and it is Leicester that have landed three wins in a row in this fixture, including one win at Old Trafford last season However, the Foxes will start this game as the big underdogs after having an inconsistent campaign this season.

Manchester United have also had something of a botched campaign with a number of poor results ensuring that they are well off the pace being set at the top of the table by Manchester City and Liverpool. However they are still very much in the battle for a Champions League spot next season and three points here would be a huge plus for them in that battle.

United’s problems seem to be defensively with the team prone to conceding goals, even at home and that is a fact that Leicester will be keen to capitalise upon, especially with the pacy and creative players they can call upon in attack.

However, I think the quality United have in attack and the fact that Leicester have struggled themselves this season means that while I can see both teams finding the net, I can only see United running out the winners.

Prediction

Man Utd to win and both teams to score - £10 returns £28.80

Football Betting Tips: Sunday 3rd April

West Ham VS Everton
03/04/2022 2:00 pm GMT

Key Stats

West Ham are 7th in the table with 48 pts. Everton are 17th with 25 points.
Only Brighton, Burnley and Norwich have scored fewer goals than Everton this season.
The away team has won the last three encounters between the teams by a 1-0 scoreline.
Just one of the last ten games between these teams has finished in a draw.

Analysis

Recent games between these two teams have been low scoring affairs and the away team has had the best of things, however I think that run may well come to an end here given the different experiences that West Ham and Everton have had this season.

The Toffees did land a much needed win over Newcastle, but were then well beaten at Crystal Palace and there’s a real fear that Frank Lampard’s team may not have the quality they need to stay up this season over these final few games of the season.

In contrast, West Ham have been superb this season and only recently dropped off the race for the top four spot. Even so, I think David Moyes has got this team playing superbly well and I think with home advantage they will be looking to earn a morale boosting win here.

With a lot of players off on international duty for both teams, I think those that stayed home will be more rested and as such Jarrod Bowen, who has been in superb form for West Ham this season, looks a great pick as a potential first goalscorer in this game.

Prediction

Jarrod Bowen to Score the first goal – £10 returns £65.00

Tottenham VS Newcastle United
03/04/2022 4:30 pm GMT

Key Stats

Spurs are 5th in the table on 51 points, Newcastle are 14th with 31 points.
Newcastle have won just one of the last nine between the two teams.
The last four games between the two have seen both teams score.
All the 3 most recent wins in this fixture have been by the away team.

Analysis

Tottenham have started to find a little bit of form of late but they are still somewhat lacking compared to Tottenham teams in other seasons and it looks like Antonio Conte is going to have a job hanging on to some of his star players at the end of this season with Harry Kane likely to attract lots of interest.

Newcastle’s form has improved a great deal of late and they have moved clear of the relegation zone on the back of a number of good performances and solid wins. However, this is a big assignment for Eddie Howe’s men although the signings they made in January do seem to have had the big positive impact they needed.

However, Spurs have now got themselves in the race for a Champions League spot this season but they are behind Arsenal and having played a game more they really cannot afford to slip up by not picking up three points here.

As such, I am going for Son and Harry Kane to inspire Spurs to a narrow win against this improving Newcastle side and I think a 2-1 victory with a late goal, probably looks the right result here.

Prediction

Tottenham to win 2-1 - £10 returns £90.00
