Ten rounds remaining in the Premier League gives us plenty to look forward to. Plenty to play for, both in terms of winning the title, clinching the sought after top 4 and 6 spots, and obviously avoiding relegation. These are my Premier League betting tips for round 28.

Turning A Corner
Chelsea – Everton

Chelsea fans are maybe feeling a bit more optimistic after their win over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, and especially so when they followed that up by winning comfortably at the King Power Stadium on Saturday. Have they turned a corner? Perhaps, but more convincing results have to happen before we can conclude with that. Three wins in a row is a sign of positivity, obviously, and you’d like to think – if you’re a Chelsea fan – that this can kickstart a winning run for the Blues. 

Next up is another blue team, Everton FC. Sean Dyche’s boys scraped a terrific 1-0 win against Brentford on Saturday, and have now picked up 4 points from their last two games, which is good for a team struggling at the bottom end of the table. Knowing Dyche and his approach to these types of games, I reckon they will be set up to defend narrowly and quite deep, limiting the Chelsea spaces to the side of the pitch. That could mean that Potter’s players have to work to find an opening, and perhaps rely on set pieces to do so. Corners make sense here, in a match where I think Chelsea will spend a good amount of time to find the first goal.

Hang On For Your Life
Arsenal – Crystal Palace

Some teams are just set up in a way that makes them comfortable going away from home and defending deep for 90 minutes. I just spoke at some length about Everton’s tendency to so, and I think Crystal Palace are one of a few other teams in the division that I trust to go and put on a solid defensive performance for the entirety of a game. I picked Palace +1.5 against Brighton for the same reason, and although going away to a red hot Arsenal team is likely to be the most difficult challenge in Europe right now, I think they can be as tight and difficult to find a way through as they were on Wednesday night.

Martin Ødegaard is taking more shots than he’s ever done before, and in a game like this – against a low block who limit spaces in behind – Arsenal’s breakthrough might come through the deeper players, like Ødegaard. You get 1.75 for him to have a shot on target in this game, which I’m taking every day of the week. These lines tend to drop quite fast, so I’d encourage you to get on early if you like my reasoning and agree in the assessment.
