Draws Look Likely in Saturday’s Premier League Games
Premier League punters aren’t always keen to back draws in the top flight but the fixture list has thrown up plenty of evenly matched contests on January 13th. West Brom haven’t won in the league for over 20 games, although their FA Cup victory over League Two Exeter may have injected some much-needed confidence into the side. They’ve been picking up some decent points since Alan Pardew took over at the Hawthorns, although the former Newcastle boss is still waiting for his first victory in charge of the Baggies; they’ve drawn four of their last five and they face a Brighton side who haven’t scored on the road in any of their last five. A number of the best betting sites featured here at BettingTop10, have priced up this match at 21/10 to end all square and a goalless 90 minutes is a realistic prospect.
Leicester and Chelsea set to be competitive
Chelsea will be aiming to continue their fine recent form and are expected to rest a few of their key players in midweek with this match against Leicester in mind. The Blues have drawn three of four in all competitions and their inability to break down Championship side Norwich is a bit of a concern coming into this tie. The Foxes have been a bit disappointing in the Premier League recently but their 3-0 victory over Huddersfield shows that they are back in business. They held Manchester United to a draw recently and a similar outcome could arise here with William Hill pricing it up at a tempting 5/1.
Watford and Southampton both looking to correct course
Watford and Southampton arrive into their meeting at Vicarage Road equally out-of-form with both teams aiming to stop the rot. Marco Silva’s side have been better at home but unable to keep clean sheets whilst Southampton picked up a notable draw against Manchester United over the festive period but lack firepower. It is 23/10 to finish all square. Crystal Palace and Burnley look fairly even-matched whilst a much-improved West Ham could find a way to stop home-specialists Huddersfield.
