Premier League predictions for acca bet, 16.August.2015
Man City v Chelsea prediction: Under 2,5 goals
PRICE BOOST: 7.0 Man City or 9.0 Chelsea! Bet now >>
Both of these sides are the joint favourites with the bookies to win the Premier League this season.
Jose Mourinho is the master of these types of games, and expect his side to have the wherewithal to keep things really tight at the Etihad Stadium.
Seven of Chelsea’s 8 games played against Man City, Man United, Arsenal and Liverpool went under 2.5 goals last season, with the only exception being a 1-2 for the Blues at Anfield.
The last 4 meetings between these two sides all seeing under 2.5 goals as winners too.
Crystal Palace v Arsenal prediction: 2
PRICE BOOST: 8.0 Arsenal to beat Palace! Bet now >>
As we saw against West Ham (0-2), Arsene Wenger’s men are perfectly capable of throwing in absolute shockers but they rarely go on long losing runs and have a great recent record against Palace, winning each of the last 5 games.
The home side have also failed to win at home to Arsenal since the Premier League was formed which has now been 8 matches.
The Gunners were also far better on the road than at the Emirates at the close of 2014/15, taking 16 points from a possible 18 on their springtime travels compared to 11 in north London.
Crystal Palace got off to a winning start last week at Norwich (3-1) but the referee certainly helped their cause.
