Predictions for Saturday, April 2nd Premier League matches

Brighton – Norwich

This is a tie without so much point-hunting. Brighton are currently rather safe, 11 points from the relegation zone, and Norwich lies in last place grabbing only 17 points so far from 29 matches. Brighton is expected to win, as they’ve done in the first match (a 3-0 away win). Bookmakers seem to agree, so the 1X2 odds sets seem correct. But the total goal scenario hides something interesting: The 3 most popular exact scores by far are 1-1, 2-1 and 2-0. All these are covered by the “2-3 goals” bet.

Manchester United – Leicester

The hosts are expected to win this one, both by the bookmakers and the punters. The overall sentiment is rather equal. But Leicester is expected to score, at least once. Four of five most popular scores according to Twitter users contain a goal by the visitors (2-1, 3-1, 1-2, 2-2) and that’s a fact to follow. A combo bet on over 2,5 goals and Both Teams To Score is the most worthy scenario.
