Premier League Betting Tips 26 April

The FA Cup semi-finals, which served up two cracking encounters at the weekend, has delivered an added bonus in that the rearranged Premier League matches involving those sides have been rescheduled for this midweek.

Just look at the games featured: title matters, top four finishers and relegation candidates will all be in action with plenty of questions presumably being answered.

Here’s the pick of Wednesday’s betting tips:

Arsenal vs Leicester City (Wednesday, 7:45pm)

Three truly has been the magic number this season. The back three system has revolutionised Chelsea’s season and turned them from chumps to (probably) champs, while Arsene Wenger’s appropriation of the tactic helped Arsenal to an FA Cup semi-final victory over Manchester City and has seemingly instilled some confidence into an otherwise flagging outfit.

They will need that buzz to help them see off Leicester in midweek; another side on the crest of the wave. Since Craig Shakespeare took charge the Foxes have displayed the kind of form that saw them crowned Premier League champions 12 months or so ago, and while on the face of it they have nothing to play for here you just know they will want to take that motivation into next season.

Since Shakespeare took the reins five of Leicester’s seven league games have witnessed three or more goals, while both of Arsenal’s outings since switching to three at the back have done likewise.

Middlesbrough vs Sunderland (Wednesday, 7:45pm)

For the optimists, this will be billed as a relegation six-pointer, but in truth it is merely just to see who will finish bottom of the Premier League table.

It’s hard to make a case for either in truth, with Middlesbrough regressing under caretaker boss Steve Agnew and Sunderland, well, they just continue to bumble along with little in the way of hope or improvement.

These are the division’s two most goal-shy outfits, and that has been the guide to placing your wagers on this one.

Crystal Palace vs Tottenham (Wednesday, 8pm)

How badly will Saturday’s defeat hurt Tottenham? Plenty, you would have thought. Not just in terms of losing a cup semi-final, but the fact that it came against bitter rivals Chelsea.

So Mauricio Pochettino will need to rally his troops pretty quickly, and of all the fixtures that could have followed such a galling defeat a trip to Crystal Palace is perhaps not the best timed. The Eagles have won six of their last eight, including triumphs over Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool. Punters must respect them here.

You suspect that this Spurs outfit is a stubborn and resilient bunch, and should have no problems bouncing back from weekend misery. But don’t underestimate Palace either; they have made punters plenty of money in the past few weeks.
