Premier League week 34 betting Tips

Bournemouth v Middlesbrough

Bournemouth will assess the fitness of midfielder Dan Gosling, who has missed three games with a calf problem. Jack Wilshere is out for the season with a fractured leg, so there could be a recall for Lewis Cook. Middlesbrough defender Calum Chambers might be involved after a nine-week absence because of a foot injury. Fabio and Rudy Gestede are fit after minor injuries but Victor Valdes and Grant Leadbitter remain out with respective rib and hamstring problems.

Middlesbrough are still saying the right things about staying up, but it looks bleak for them now and there's no hint of a remarkable recovery in the air. Recent results haven't been great though and Boro's often chance-starved forwards will have noted that Bournemouth have conceded at least two goals in seven of the last eight games on the south coast. I am predicting both sides to get on the score sheet. Bet9ja offers 1.70 odds for both teams to score.


Bournemouth 2-1 Middlesbrough

Hull City v Watford

Hull have no new injury problems, with Dieumerci Mbokani pushing to start after returning from a six-week injury lay-off as a substitute last weekend. Omar Elabdellaoui remains out with a back injury so Ahmed Elmomahady or Harry Maguire could play at right-back. Watford defender Miguel Britos is available again after missing the win over Swansea because of suspension. Craig Cathcart had hoped to return after a knee injury but the central defender is not yet ready for action.

Watford who already look safe after last week's win over Swansea to get to the 40-point mark won 1-0 in the only previous Premier League meeting last October. Watford also won on their last league visit to Hull, a Championship game in April 2013. Hull boss Marco Silva still has work to do but he will be confident of winning this game because of his home record since taking over the reins at KCOM stadium. Bet9ja's 1.90 winning odds for the Tigers may just be the right way to spend your money.


Hull City 2-1 Watford

Swansea v Stoke City

Swansea captain Jack Cork is ruled out for a second game because of an ankle injury sustained at West Ham. Wayne Routledge may need surgery on a hernia complaint and Fernando Llorente is a doubt, but Leon Britton could feature for the first time this year. Jon Walters is in contention to start for Stoke despite not training this week due to fluid on his knee. Joe Allen and Glenn Whelan are set to return from respective hamstring and back injuries.

Stoke had some awkward moments against Hull last weekend but eventually came through to record a victory that ended their poor run of results as they now chase another top-10 finish. While Swansea have won just one of the last seven Premier League meetings (D3, L3), Stoke are looking to win back-to-back away league games at Swansea for the first time. It is a tough task to know what to expect from the Potters who ended a four-game losing streak by beating Hull, but I am sticking with Bet9ja's 1.28 double chance 1X odds in favour of the home side.


Swansea City 2-2 Stoke City

West Ham v Everton

Andy Carroll is a doubt for West Ham because of the recurrence of a groin injury, meaning Diafra Sakho could make his first start since November. Winston Reid returns following five weeks out with a groin problem but Sam Byram and Mark Noble are both suspended. Everton's on-loan forward Enner Valencia is ineligible to face his parent club. James McCarthy may not play again this season because of a hamstring injury. Muhamed Besic is nearing a return after missing the entire campaign with a knee injury.

While the Hammers Ham need three points for safety, Ronald Koeman's Toffees need to improve their away form if they are to finish in the top five. West Ham have only won seven of the last 48 league meetings spanning 30 years, losing 29 of those games. Everton are on an eight-match unbeaten run away to West Ham in the Premier League, winning six and drawing two. The visitors are favourites here but they are on the road, the Merseysiders just don't seem to create the same number of chances that they do at Goodison Park, so I am going to go with Bet9ja's 1.26 odds for any of the teams to win.
