Top 5 Bets for the Weekend: January 12-13

We pick through the list of odds and stats to find some bets we like the look of, so you don’t have to!

West Ham v Arsenal – Over 2.5 Goals – 1.50 – BET HERE

There have been Over 2.5 Goals in 12 of Arsenal’s 14 away games this season in all competitions, while only Tottenham have scored more away goals than the Gunners in the Premier League this season. Seven of West Ham’s past ten home games have featured Over 2.5 Goals, as have 12 of their last 15 matches against Arsenal. Expect goals here.

Portsmouth v Blackpool - Portsmouth Win - 1.55 – BET HERE

Portsmouth are top of League One with seven wins from their last ten league matches, including four of the last five at home. In contrast, Blackpool have taken just one point from their last five games to leave them in 11th place, 22 points behind the leaders. Portsmouth have won three of their past four matches against the visitors and are favourites on Saturday.

Nice v Bordeaux - Under 2.5 Goals - 1.50 – BET HERE

No side in Ligue 1 has scored fewer goals this season than Nice, who have only managed 13 goals in 18 games. They have also conceded just 17 times, the third lowest figure in the division, and it’s no surprise that there have been Under 2.5 Goals in each of their last ten league games. Bordeaux have seen fewer than three goals in seven of their last ten matches in Ligue 1, including four of the last five away from home. Furthermore, four of the last five meetings between these teams have featured Under 2.5 Goals, with a total of just five goals in that run. Will it be any different this time?

Boavista v Maritimo - Under 2.5 Goals - 1.45 – BET HERE

Under 2.5 Goals have been scored in eight of Boavista’s last ten games in the Primeira Liga, including each of their last five at home. They are just one place above Maritimo, who have scored ten goals this season (the joint-lowest figure in the league). There have been Under 2.5 Goals in seven of the visitors’ last ten league matches, including four out of five away. The stats don’t indicate an exciting clash on Saturday.

Everton v Bournemouth – Both Teams to Score – 1.60 – BET HERE

Here’s an interest fact: on average, matches between Everton and Bournemouth have been the highest scoring in Premier League history. Six of the previous seven league meetings have had both teams score, including a 2-2 draw earlier this season. Everton have scored and conceded in four of their last five home games, and form doesn’t suggest that it will be any different this time.
