Premier League Predictions for New Year's Day...

Thursday 31st December 2020

In Across the Leagues EXTRA today:

  • Low-scoring games…
  • Premier League Predictions…
  • 10/1 Weekend Acca…

Festive form = low goals…

Two of the 10 midweek Premier League fixtures were called off at short notice due to coronavirus outbreaks. And more could follow in the weeks ahead.

Things of note so far in this festive season:

  • 50% of the Premier League games played since Boxing Day have ended in draws (9 out of 18 games). With 4 x 1-1 score-lines, 3 x 0-0 draws, and 2 x 2-2 scores
  • 13 of those 18 games have paid out on Under 2.5 Goals (72%)
  • In the latest round of fixtures, 7 of the 8 matches played went Under 2.5 Goals. With scores of 0-0 x 2, 1-1 x 2, and 1-0 x 3. (The one anomaly was Leeds Utd’s 5-0 win at West Brom)

If that pattern continues – with squads stretched, and players struggling to produce their best football under the conditions. Then we should look out for more low-scoring affairs in the Premier League this New Year’s weekend…

The recent form suggests it could be worthwhile pursuing some low-goals Correct Score options:

  • In this week’s Predictions (see below), I’ve gone for 7 of the 10 scheduled matches go Under 2.5 Goals. With 3 x 1-0 score-lines on my list
  • My colleague Shaun has gone for no fewer than 4 narrow 1-0 score-lines. With a couple of goalless draws thrown in for good measure, too
