2016-17 Premier League: Week 34 Betting Preview

2016-17 Premier League: Week 34 Betting Preview

Unfortunately last week Swansea wasn’t able to grab an equalizer at Watford, so our value plays drop to +15.36 units on the season. Week 34 is an abbreviated one since there are two massive FA Cup matches on Saturday and Sunday (Chelsea vs. Tottenham, Arsenal vs. Manchester City).

I’ve only got one play for this short week, and it’s on Middlesbrough +350 at Bournemouth. Unfortunately this pick isn’t strictly betting against the public, as Middlesbrough are actually getting just over half of early moneyline tickets. However, there has been line movement on them from +376 to +350 at Pinnacle, and +355 to +335 CRIS. I was also really encouraged to see Middlesbrough’s effort at home on Monday against Arsenal, a game they really should have earned a point in. They’re still in a relegation battle but this is a winnable game, and I like the way this team has been playing. Middlesbrough have just 1 win in 16 away matches this season, but only a -10 goal differential, meaning they’re usually in tight games and they don’t get blown out on the road. Lots of good signs are pointing towards a big Middlesbrough win on Saturday, so grab them at +350 odds or higher.

Most Lopsided Around Market: 76% on Swansea (+119)

Biggest Line Moves at Pinnacle: Burnley (+646 to +487), Hull (+101 to -110)

Value Plays (+15.36 units): Middlesbrough +350 at Bournemouth
