Best Weekend Prop Bets: January 21st-22nd

We’ve delved into the props markets once again as we look ahead to this weekend’s Premier League action. Liverpool host Chelsea in the first game of the weekend. There is also a big clash on Sunday as Manchester United head to London to take on Arsenal.

11 of our 12 props selections over the last two weekends have won. We are looking to continue that form here.

In this article:

Liverpool vs Chelsea Preview

Saturday, January 21st, 12:30 (UK)

Chelsea head to Anfield in Saturday’s early game. Liverpool bounced back from their league defeat to Brighton by advancing in the FA Cup. The Blues also returned to winning ways in their last match by edging past Crystal Palace in front of their own fans.

The last four meetings between these sides have ended in a draw; the last of which was the FA Cup final that was settled on penalties. Both of these sides are significantly weaker than they were last season. Chelsea have been hit by a number of injuries. Key players are also unavailable for Jurgen Klopp. This match could greatly impact the second half of the season as these teams strive to qualify for next season’s Champions League.

Liverpool vs Chelsea Best Bet

Liverpool have looked frail defensively in recent weeks so the visitors should be able to create some good opportunities. Klopp’s side aren’t controlling games in the manner they did last season but they are still a threat going forward.

Liverpool’s league matches at home this season 27.89 shots per game. Their matches in all competitions at Anfield this season are averaging 27.07 shots. The last time these two teams locked horns at this ground, there were 30 shots in the match.

  • Selection: Over 25.5 Shots In The Match (TRACKED BET)
  • Best Odds: 1.80 (bet365)
  • Stakes: 6/10

Crystal Palace vs Newcastle Preview

Saturday, January 21st, 17:30 (UK)

Newcastle beat Fulham in their last match as their quest to finish in the top four continues. Eddie Howe’s side have still only lost one league match this season. They have played some good football and been pragmatic against some of the bigger sides. Their last victory made it seven wins in nine Premier League matches. There is a lot to be excited about if you are a Newcastle fan.

Palace earned a point against Man United midweek. A stunning free-kick from Olise late on pegged the visitors back but there could be some tired legs here. Viera’s side aren’t in great form. They have just one win in their last six league matches. They will need to improve to beat this high-flying Newcastle side.

Crystal Palace vs Newcastle Best Bet

Crystal Palace’s matches at Selhurst Park in the league this season are averaging 42.9 tackles. There were 41 tackles in the reverse fixture. There looks set to be plenty here. There has been at least 44 tackles in Palace’s last four matches. The average amount of tackles in a game over this period has been 51.25.

Viera’s men force the most tackles in the Premier League this season by some distance. Their opponents are averaging 22.16 tackles per game. Southampton force the second most with 19.26.

  • Selection: Over 39.5 Tackles In The Match (TRACKED BET)
  • Best Odds: 1.90 (bet365)
  • Stakes: 7/10

Leicester vs Brighton Preview

Saturday, January 21st, 15:00 (UK)

Leicester are in danger of being dragged back into the bottom three. They are currently 14th but just two points clear of 18th place. The Foxes’ only win since domestic football resumed came against Gillingham. The 2-0 defeat at Forest last weekend set alarm bells ringing for the side that won the league in 2016.

Brighton come into this game on the back of a comprehensive 3-0 win over Liverpool. Roberto De Zerbi took over from Graham Potter earlier this season and has his team in the hunt for European football. The Italian failed to win any of his five matches in charge. However, the team have since won seven of their 10 matches in all competitions. Their only defeats have come against Arsenal and Aston Villa.

Leicester vs Brighton Best Bet

Kaoru Mitoma has been in fine form of late. He had four shots at home to Liverpool in Brighton’s last game. He also had two shots in their last away game against Everton.

Brendan Rodgers’ side are conceding 13.58 shots per game this season. However, they conceded a whopping 23 shots when they met Brighton in the reverse fixture. The Japan international should have plenty of opportunities to shoot here as they look to take advantage of a flailing Leicester side.

  • Selection: Over 1.5 Shots For Mitoma (TRACKED BET)
  • Best Odds: 1.80 (bet365)
  • Stakes: 7/10

Leeds vs Brentford Preview

Sunday, January 22nd, 14:00 (UK)

Leeds find themselves in a relegation scrap again this season. They are part of the pack that are just two points clear of the drop zone. Jesse Marsch was able to steer them away from trouble last season. However, Leeds have won just two of their last 15 Premier League matches and patience is starting to wear thin.

Brentford have already amassed 29 points this season so there is no danger of them being relegated. Thomas Frank’s side have secured memorable wins over Man United and Liverpool this season. Now they will be looking to go a step further and challenge for European football.

Leeds vs Brentford Best Bet

Marsch’s side are known for their high-intensity pressing. They allow 8.74 passes per defensive action; the fewest in the Premier League. Harassing opponents high up the pitch usually leads to a lot of throws.

Leeds’ matches at Elland Road this season are averaging 44.89 throws per game this season. Since the season resumed, their matches have averaged 50.6 throws per game. There were 45 throws when these sides met earlier in the season. Brentford’s last Premier League match against Bournemouth saw 45 throws.

  • Selection: Over 43.5 Throws In The Match (TRACKED BET)
  • Best Odds: 1.83 (bet365)
  • Stakes: 8/10

Arsenal vs Man Utd Preview

Sunday, January 22nd, 16:30 (UK)

Arsenal face Man United in Sunday’s big clash. Ten Hag’s side are the only team to beat them in the league this season. This time the Gunners have home advantage and will be confident of taking revenge.

Arteta’s side are five points clear of Man City heading into the weekend having played a game less. They are yet to play Guardiola’s men in the league so they will want to maintain a healthy lead over their title rivals.

United drew with Crystal Palace midweek and tired legs could be an issue here. They are currently eight points behind Arsenal in the league. A victory at the Emirates could make them unlikely title challengers.

Arsenal vs Man Utd Best Bet

Arsenal are averaging 19.13 shots in front of their own fans this season. The Gunners have a lot of attacking talent and won’t be afraid to let fly in what is a massive game. They also had 17 shots when they went to Old Trafford earlier this season.

United has shown signs of improvement as the season has progressed but Arsenal should see plenty of the ball here. Casemiro is suspended for this one and he does a lot of the work defensively in midfield. Manchester City had 22 shots when United went to the Etihad earlier this season.

  • Selection: Over 14.5 Shots For Arsenal (TRACKED BET)
  • Best Odds: 1.80 (bet365)
  • Stakes: 8/10
