In this weekend’s Premier League fixture list, there are a few good opportunities for those wishing to enter the corner betting market.
Leicester will take on Sunderland at the King power stadium on Saturday and this game has a good chance of finishing with fewer than 10.5 goals. The Foxes win an average of 5.4 corners per home game but their opponents from the North East only manage to win an average of 3.6 away. The combined average of 9 makes this one a strong contender for under 10.5 corner bets.
At first glance the Everton versus West Ham game seems like a good choice for a high corner count. Everton win an average of 6.8 corners per home game while the Hammers have a best-in-league average of 7.6 corners won per away match. However, Everton concede fewer corners at home than any other team with an average of just 2 against and could restrict Sam Allardyce’s men to a more humble total this weekend.
With the game at Goodison ruled out, let’s take a look at Manchester City versus Swansea at the Etihad. The home side a have a fairly high average of 7 corners won per home game but they are facing the poorest team in the league when it comes to corners. Swansea have a low corner count of just 2 per away game and they are only slightly better at home. The chances of them improving this statistic against City on Saturday are slim. This is further emphasised by the fact that City only concede an average of 3.4 corners at home against all opposition.
The next game to grab the attention is Arsenal against Manchester United at the Emirates. This game stands out as a contender for over 10.5 goals. Arsenal top the league table for home corners won with an average of 10.4 per game. United are extremely tight at conceding corners on the road but will do well to reduce Arsenal by a significant amount. The Red Devils have managed to bag 5 corners per away game this season and this game looks like a good shout for those exploring the over 10.5 corner market.
