If you are looking to explore the corner betting market this weekend, there are a few Premier League games that you should look out for.
Under 10.5 corners
The first game that should be considered for the low corner markets is Burnley v Aston Villa. Sean Dyche’s men have won an average of 4.8 corners per home game this season while Paul Lambert’s Villa side have managed just 4.3 per away game. Overall, matches at Turf Moor this season have averaged just 8.5 corners per game and this game should also finish in the under 10.5 corner zone.
Swansea keep cropping up in the under 10.5 category and they are still the worst team in the Premier League when it comes to winning corners – home and away. Garry Monk’s Swans have only managed to win an average of 2.5 corners per home game while conceding an average of 4.5. This weekend they entertain a Crystal Palace team that wins an average of just 3.7 corners per away game. Neil Warnock’s team do have a habit of conceding a high number of corners on the road but Swansea’s reluctance to get to the by-line should ensure that this game falls well below the 10.5 threshold.
Gus Poyet’s Sunderland play host to league leaders Chelsea this weekend and start the game with an average home corner count of 5.7 per game. When combined with the opposition average, they have a season average of 9.5 total corners per home game. Chelsea may be top of the league table but they are below mid-table when it comes to winning corners on their travels. A corner average of just 4 per away game means that this game should come in at under 10.5 corners.
Predictions: Burnley v Aston Villa, Swansea v Crystal Palace, Sunderland v Chelsea
Over 10.5 corners
Harry Redknapp’s QPR are close to the league average when it comes to winning home corners with a running total of 6.3 per game. This weekend, they will be visited at Loftus Road by Nigel Pearson’s Leicester City. The Foxes have managed to force a total of 4.8 corners in their favour per away match but their ability to concede away corners at a rate of 8.8 per game can only be bettered by Burnley. As a result, Leicester’s away games have averaged 13.7 total corners per game. With Rangers’ home games averaging 11.2, this match is another contender for your over 10.5 corner bets.
Tottenham have no problems winning corners at home, in fact; only three teams are better in this department. An average of 8 corners won and 4.7 conceded per game gives a total average of 12.7 per game. Everton win a relatively small average of 3.8 corners per away game but combined with Spurs home corner profligacy, this game should still finish north of 10.5 corner.
Predictions: QPR v Leicester, Tottenham v Everton
