Football Betting Tips

In this week’s midweek action, we focus on English football, as well as the Australian A-League clash between Melbourne Heart and Adelaide United.

We preview Chelsea’s catch-up game in the English Premier League, as The Blues welcome Southampton to Stamford Bridge. Will Rafa Benitez lead his troops to the three points on home turf? 

 

The rest of England will be turning their attention to the FA Cup, when Arsenal welcome Swansea City and Manchester United take on West Ham United. Who is your money on?

 

If you are a betting person, here are tips ahead of the midweek action brought to you by Soccer 6 and guest predictor, SuperSport United coach, Gavin Hunt.

ARSENAL V SWANSEA CITY

League position: Arsenal 6th and Swansea 9th 

Useful facts: Arsenal’s confidence will have been shaken after their recent 2-1 defeat at home to Manchester City. Swansea have shown they have the calibre to take on the Gunners, the Swans winning 2-0 at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea.  

Gavin Hunt: Arsenal home win. 

 

CHELSEA V SOUTHAMPTON

League position: Chelsea 3rd and Southampton 15th 

Useful facts: Despite a shock defeat to Swansea in the first leg semi-final of the League Cup, Chelsea are generally coming together nicely under Rafa Benitez. This means Southampton will be firm underdogs in this Premiership fixture.   

Gavin Hunt: Ag, it’s got to be a Chelsea win at home.

 

COVENTRY CITY V TRANMERE ROVERS

League position: Coventry 13th and Rovers 1st (both in League One) 

Useful facts: Coventry’s sound home record at the Ricoh Arena will be under threat on Wednesday night. However, League One leaders Tranmere have a surprisingly poor away record and the Sky Blues could look to take advantage. 

Gavin Hunt: I’ll go for a Tranmere win. 

 

MANCHESTER UNITED V WEST HAM UNITED

League position: United 1st and United 11th 

Useful facts: United seem to be romping away to victory in the English Premiership and will look to continue this form in the FA Cup. It’ll be a tough ask for the Irons in this third-round replay at the Theatre of Dreams.

Gavin Hunt: Come on, Manchester United win. 

 

MELBOURNE HEART V ADELAIDE UNITED

League position: Heart 7th and United 2nd 

Useful facts: In this Australian A-League clash, struggling Melbourne Heart take on title contenders Adelaide United at the Hindmarsh Stadium. John Aloisi’s men are quite a tough side to break down on home soil, meaning Adelaide won’t have it all their own way.  

Gavin Hunt: Who? I’ll go for an Adelaide win.
