Carroll to bag another belter is one of our 5 Premier League bets to consider this weekend

We fancy Mourinho’s men to eke out a win in Wales too.

AFTER A WILD week of FA Cup replays we are back to the usual business of the Premier League. With ten games over Saturday, Sunday and Monday, we’ve analysed the latest data to bring you 5 bets to consider before the action starts.

As always, these bets are absolutely guaranteed to come through provided a large number of variables fall into place.

Chelsea to win away to Swansea and total goals under 2.5 – 5/2

There have been less than 2.5 goals in five of Chelsea’s last six league games, four of which were wins. The question is whether Swansea can score against Mourinho’s men without striker Wilfried Bony. They may recover from his absence, but until we know for sure it is safer to stick with the leaders.

Draw and under 2.5 goals in Burnley vs Crystal Palace – 11/4

Burnley have been in good form over the last six weeks while Palace showed their first signs of life under Alan Pardew with an impressive win over Spurs. Neither team scores a lot of goals so a low-scoring draw is very possible.

Over 2.5 goals in QPR vs Man United – 5/6

QPR have the worst defence in the league, which Louis van Gaal’s men should be able to exploit after a few lackluster offensive displays in recent weeks. At the other end, Charlie Austin is in great form while United’s defence is prone to lapses in concentration. In short, there should be goals.

Andy Carroll to score anytime for West Ham at home to Hull – 13/8

He has been the butt of a lot of jokes for years but this season Andy Carroll has quietly gone about his business and it is paying off nicely for Big Sam and The Hammers with some key goals. He scored a beautiful screamer against Swansea recently and given Hull’s slide down the table, he should get a few chances on Sunday.

Man United to win, Chelsea to win, Man City to win at home to Arsenal and Liverpool to win/draw away to Aston Villa – 9/2

Happy fourfold, everyone!
