Online betting players following the English Premier League have some midweek action to get through first before a trio of weekend games should make the picture at the final table a little clearer. Here is a look at three matches worth laying a little in this weekend’s soccer betting action.

Tottenham Chelsea Odds – Saturday, 8:45 AM ET

The action kicks off with an all-London affair as Spurs head to Stamford Bridge, where the Blues will be waiting after a midweek visit from Manchester City in what will be a massive fixture on the schedule. Tottenham will get back on the pitch for the first time on Wednesday against Stoke City since Saturday’s FA Cup clash against Bolton, which was called because of the collapse of Bolton’s Fabrice Muamba. It has been an exhausting time for Spurs, who had been struggling and then the tragedy with Muamba (who is coming around), but they can’t lose focus. Going into the midweek game, Spurs were in third place, a point ahead of Arsenal, and they’re only four points ahead of Chelsea in the table.

Chelsea picked up a 1-1 draw at White Hart Lane on December 22nd, and they’ll be favored at the Bridge against Spurs, who have six wins and five losses in their 14 matches away from home and the Blues have a head of steam, especially if they somehow manage to beat Manchester City. Lean towards the home side in this London derby.

Soccer Betting Pick: Chelsea

Manchester City Stoke Odds – Saturday, 1:30 PM ET

Manchester City will be in a foul mood if they drop more points ahead of their trip to Stoke, as they were four points behind Manchester United with a game in hand. The big news surrounding their fixture against Chelsea on Wednesday is the possibility of having Carlos Tevez back in the team since September. City’s former captain has been at odds with manager Roberto Mancini, but it helps both sides if Tevez comes back and suits up for the Sky Blues and he has a history of late-season heroics from his time at West Ham.

Stoke fell 1-0 at Chelsea before heading to White Hart Lane to face Spurs on Wednesday, and even though they’re comfortably ahead of the relegation battle, Stoke has a chance to jump a few spots as they’re on 33 points, which is only six points behind eighth-place Swansea City. There is a lot of time and opportunity to move a lot of spots for Stoke.

Stoke got thumped 3-0 at the City of Manchester Stadium on December 21st, but they’re much better at home than away with six wins and four losses at the Brittania Stadium, while all four of City’s losses have come on the road. Still, City knows they can’t afford to drop any more points and they’ll be the pick to make on Saturday.

Soccer Betting Pick: Manchester City

Newcastle West Brom Odds – Sunday, 11:00 AM ET

Neither of these sides will be in action during the midweek, which means they’ll be rested for this weekend fixture at the Hawthorns, and Newcastle has big aspirations as they sit in sixth place, two points behind Chelsea. The problem is that the Magpies struggle when they’re away from St. James Park with five wins and six losses in 14 away matches and they’ll need to step up their away form if they’re going to challenge for a spot in Europe.

West Brom is 11 points behind Newcastle and they’re in a logjam of eight or nine teams within six points of each other, and a loss can mean the difference between seventh or 14th place at the end of the season. Strangely, West Brom is worse at home (four wins and eight losses in 14 matches) than away (six wins and five losses in 13 matches), so this is going to be an interesting soccer match to pick.

It’s all about who has more to play for and that probably favors Newcastle, who wasn’t expected to get to this point and they’re a little fortunate that they have a fixture like this so late in the season. It should be an exciting game as again, both teams didn’t have to play in midweek and they’ve probably been itching to get on the pitch, but even though they may be the underdogs away from home, take Newcastle in your online betting picks.

Soccer Betting Pick: Newcastle
