Manchester United v Liverpool - Premier League

Tottenham vs. Burnley

 

Match Date: 20 December 2014 (local time)

Venue: White Hart Lane

It’s easy to say that Tottenham is the evident online betting favorite in the match against Burnley. In terms of their form, Tottenham really has the overt advantage. They’re on the verge of entering the top 5, whilst Burnley struggles in the 17th spot.
However, it looks like Burnley is currently building momentum. The club has been undefeated in 5 of its last 6 matches and just recently, it totally killed Southampton’s hopes of recovering when they snatched a narrow victory. Now, this is something that Tottenham should be wary of. They couldn’t afford to belittle Burnley or they might be slapped by a humiliating loss.

 

Prediction

Tottenham 1-0 Burnley

Aston Villa vs. Manchester United

 

Match Date: 20 December 2014 (local time)

Venue: Villa Park

 

Yes, Manchester United is indeed, back to its winning ways. From a struggling mid-table club, who would expect that the Red Devils will be able to return to the top 3? Many are indeed, expecting improvements, but perhaps no one expected it to be so soon. Currently, United occupies the 3rd spot and brags a clean slate in its last 6 matches. These consecutive victories were the reasons behind United’s sudden rise to the top.

 

As for Aston Villa, one can expect them to stand up to the challenge. Like United, they also sport a competitive form. They were undefeated in its last 5 battles. But just recently, they were outlasted by West Brom. Nevertheless, considering Aston Villa’s experience in the Premier League, expect it to give United, the top pick of sports betting sites a difficult time.

 

Prediction

Aston Villa 1-2 Manchester United
