Man City vs. Sheffield Utd
Under 4.5 goals at 1.44 (bet365)
Man City are injury-depleted and four of their last five games against Sheffield United went under 2.5 goals. Four of the Blades’ last five games coming into this fixture went under 2.5 goals.
Crystal Palace vs. Brentford
Draw at 3.40 (bet365)
All five previous Premier League meetings between these two resulted in a draw. Crystal Palace are on an eight-game winless streak while Brentford have only won one of their last seven.
1-1 correct score at 7.00 (bet365)
The last three meetings between these two resulted in a 1-1 draw. Palace’s most recent draw came by a 1-1 scoreline, and the same can be said for Brentford. Palace have only kept 2 clean sheets out of 11 home games this season, while Brentford have only kept 2 clean sheets out of 10 away games.
Tottenham vs. Bournemouth
Note: Tottenham have yet to play their midweek fixture against Brighton at the time of writing.
Over 2.5 goals at 1.42 (Unibet)
On paper this should be a good game for the neutral. Tottenham have won three on the trot while Bournemouth roar into this clash in 6-1-0 form. I will back a higher scoring game. Eight of Tottenham’s last nine games went over 2.5 goals. Spurs have scored 2+ goals in their last three games but they have only kept one clean sheet in their last nine. Bournemouth are in a rich vein of form offensively. The Cherries have scored in ten consecutive games. They have scored 2+ goals in seven consecutive games and 3 goals in three consecutive games.
Fulham vs. Arsenal
Note: Arsenal have yet to play their midweek fixture against West Ham at the time of writing.
Arsenal in the head-to-head at 1.57 (bet365)
Fulham have lost three consecutive games by a combined 8 goals to nil. They have gone 1-0-7 as the home underdog over the last twelve months. Arsenal bring 5-1-1 form into this clash and they have won five consecutive games at Craven Cottage.
Liverpool vs. Newcastle
Liverpool in the head-to-head at 1.48 (Unibet)
This is a bet against the injury-depleted Newcastle, who currently have nine players out. Newcastle have lost four of their last five games as well as four straight away fixtures. In those four away defeats, Newcastle were outscored by a combined 10 goals to 1. Anfield has not been a happy hunting ground for Newcastle. Since 1995, Liverpool have gone 23-5-0 against Newcastle at this venue. That includes a 14-3-0 run since late 2004. Both home and away, Liverpool have won five consecutive games against Newcastle.
West Ham vs. Brighton
Note: West Ham and Brighton have yet to play their midweek fixtures against Arsenal and Tottenham, respectively, at the time of writing.
West Ham +0.5 at 1.50 (Betfair)
West Ham have gone 8-2-1 as the home favourite over the last twelve months, while Brighton have gone 2-0-6 as the away underdog. West Ham have won their last two home fixtures by a combined 5 goals to nil. I have shied away from backing West Ham in the head-to-head because four of their last six home games against Brighton resulted in a draw.
