Premier League Tips – 5th & 6th March

Author: Published: March 4, 2022

Premier League TipsApologies for the lack of FA Cup tips this week, especially considering that I had racked up over £80 in profit over the two sets of tips previous to that in the Premier League, Carabao Cup Final and Europa League ties.

I did need that though and I am hoping to continue that good run this week as we head towards another weekend of Premier League action.

Last weekend’s results, combined with Leicester’s win over Burnley in midweek means that Manchester City remain six points clear at the top of the table from Liverpool but the Reds have a game in hand on their rivals for the title.

Chelsea have a further game in hand on City, but are 16 points adrift of City and ten behind Liverpool and with Manchester United now just three points behind them in the league table, albeit having played two games more, the onus is on Chelsea to start picking up some more points.

There are some intriguing games to look forward to this weekend with Chelsea facing a trip to Burnley, while Norwich City an Brentford meet in a crucial relegation battle.

At the top end of the table, Liverpool face West Ham on Saturday evening, while on Sunday Arsenal face a trip to Watford before the big game of the weekend, Manchester City taking on Manchester United in a crucial Manchester derby.

We then see a Monday night clash between two teams desperate for a win, Tottenham and Everton.

Like I said, after more than doubling my money with my last two sets of tips, I am looking for another good result with this selection too.

Football Betting Tips: Saturday 5th March

Leicester VS Leeds United
05/03/2022 12:30 pm GMT

Key Stats

Leicester are 12th in the table, Leeds are 16th. 7 points separate the teams.
The teams drew 1-1 at Elland Road back in November.
Both teams have scored in all the last four between the two.
Near 70% of Leicester’s and 62% of Leeds games this season saw both teams score.

Analysis

I’ll be honest, I am always wary of betting on games where there has been a change of manager for one of the teams. Sometimes, you can get a new manager bump in form, other times, nothing will change and the team will still perform as it has been doing.

So with Marcelo Bielsa sacked by Leeds, and Jesse Marsch coming in, I am expecting to see a reaction from Leeds after a difficult few weeks where they have shipped goals by the bucketload against the likes of Man Utd, Spurs and Liverpool.

However, they face a tough task against a Leicester City side that earned a much-needed 2-0 win in the week over Burnley and who sees their manager, Brendan Rodgers also believed to be under a bit of pressure to improve things after what has been a disappointing season for the Foxes.

It’s no surprise then that I am going for both teams to find the net, with Jesse Marsch coming in to replace Marcelo Bielsa, Leeds will be fired up to perform well for their new coach but Leicester are more than capable of putting back to back wins together this week and I think they’ll edge this game most likely by a 2-1 scoreline.

Norwich City VS Brentford
05/03/2022 3:00 pm GMT

Key Stats

Norwich are bottom of the EPL on 17 points. Brentford are 15th with 24 points.
Brentford have gone nine games without a win in all competitions.
Norwich were 2-1 winners when the teams met back in November.
Brentford have won just one of the last 10 between the two teams (Norwich winning 6).

Analysis

Norwich earned their first win of the season away to Brentford back in November in what was Daniel Farke’s last game in charge and the Canaries will be hoping to pick up another vital three points here to perhaps move themselves off the bottom of the Premier League table.

Brentford meanwhile have their own issues. A lack of goals for the team of late has hit them hard and a poor run of form win no win in any of their last nine games, has seen then sucked into the battle to avoid the drop at the foot of the Premier League table.

There’s no doubt a fit and healthy Christian Eriksen would help Brentford’s plight a great deal and it is great to see him back playing. Brentford certainly need his creativity and goalscoring threat if they are to arrest this alarming slide into the bottom reaches of the Premier League table.

However, I think Norwich fans will know that this game is one that their team must win if they are to stand any chance at all of avoiding the drop and I think when Norwich score, Teemu Pukki is usually the man on the spot and I think he is a great value anytime goalscorer betting option here.

Prediction

Teemu Pukki to score at anytime - £10 returns £30.00

Wolverhampton Wanderers VS Crystal Palace
05/03/2022 3:00 pm GMT

Key Stats

Wolves occupy 8th in the table, Palace are 11th, ten points separate the teams.
Wolves have lost three of their last five, but palace have lost just one in that period.
Palace have won the last two games, but Wolves won the previous three.
Only one of the last eight games between the teams has seen both score.

Analysis

Not too long ago, I’d have been hot on Wolves winning this game, probably by a 1-0 or if I was feeling generous 2-0 scoreline. However, the Midland’s side have lost their last two games and in contrast, Palace have been very tough to beat, losing just one of their last five.

Both sides are strong defensively, especially Wolves who have one of the best defensive records in the Premier League this season in terms of goals conceded, but Palace too have been hard to score against and both have made life difficult for some of the top teams in the Premier League at times this season.

However, inconsistency has been a real issue, especially for Palace but also for Wolves at times and as such, it can be difficult to find a pattern of results for either team, so that kind of leaves me with how recent form has been going.

After two defeats, Wolves won’t want a third in a row here if they are to have any hopes of a top seven finish. However, Palace are in great form at the moment and are proving tough to beat and in that case, I think a draw is probably the right option to back.

Draw - £10 returns £31.00

Football Betting Tips: Sunday 6th March

Man City VS Man Utd
06/03/2022 4:30 pm GMT

Key Stats

City are six points clear at the top of the EPL, United are 4th in the table 3 pts behind Chelsea.
United though are unbeaten in their last nine Premier League games, drawing 5.
The away team has won nine of the last 12 fixtures between these two teams.
There has been just one draw in the last dozen games between the two.

Analysis

Five of the last nine matches between these teams has finished in a 2-0 scoreline to one or the other of the teams, while away teams have had the upper hand in recent games, with nine of the last twelve winners being the away team.

However, saying that this makes United the favourites to win this game is a bit of a stretch in my view. The Red Devils will have a strong chance if they play their very best, but let’s not forget that they were thrashed 5-0 by Liverpool at home earlier on in the season and City have also beaten them at Old Trafford.

City’s form of late has been a little less impressive than usual. They were fortunate to earn a 1-0 win at Everton last weekend, when a late penalty was not given to the Toffees when it should have been, and they have dropped four points out of the last 15 available, which has allowed Liverpool to close the gap.

I can’t see Liverpool fans having too much to celebrate here as I think while United may grab a goal in the game, I strongly fancy City to earn a win which will keep them in front of their rivals.

Man City to win and both teams to score - £10 returns £30.00
