Watford vs. Bournemouth

 

Back the draw at 3.60 (Neds, Unibet, Palmerbet)

The two sides are evenly matched, as highlighted by the fact that five of their previous six meetings resulted in stalemates – including all three fixtures at Vicarage Road.

Back the 2-2 correct score at 13.00 (bet365, Neds)

Three of the last four meetings resulted in a 2-2 scoreline.

Leicester City vs. Everton

 

Back Leicester City in the head-to-head at 2.25 (Neds, Unibet, bet365)

Leicester City have a 2-1-1 home record against Everton, who have a poor 3-7-9 away record.

Back Leicester City +0.5 at 1.35 (bet365)
Back Leicester City draw no bet at 1.63 (Unibet)

Everton have only won 2 out of 19 away fixtures over the last 12 months as the underdog.

Burnley vs. Huddersfield

 

Back Burnley in the head-to-head at 2.15 (Neds)
Back Burnley in the draw no bet at 1.45 (Neds)

This is more a bet against Huddersfield, however Burnley have picked up in form with back to back wins over Bournemouth and Cardiff. They enter this clash with a 4-1-2 record as the home favourite over the last 12 months. Huddersfield have a poor 2-5-12 away record, with 10 of their 12 defeats coming to nil and 11 coming by more than a one-goal margin. Huddersfield have lost 6 of their last 8 fixtures.

Back under 0.5 goals at 7.50 Unibet)

To provide some insurance, both fixtures between the two ended 0-0 last season. The under 0.5 goals selection provided better odds than the 0-0 correct score at the time of writing.

Crystal Palace vs. Wolverhampton

 

Back Crystal Palace +0.5 at 1.47 (bet365)

Crystal Palace have a 6-5-1 record as the home favourite over the last 12 months. The draw at 3.20 is also worth considering.

Tottenham vs. Cardiff

 

Back Tottenham in the head-to-head at 1.25 (Neds)
Back Tottenham -1.5 at 1.70 (bet365)

Tottenham have gone 14-2-0 as the home favourite over the last 12 months. Apart from two goalless draws against Huddersfield and Newcastle, Cardiff have lost every fixture this season, with both away defeats coming by more than a goal. Nine of Tottenham’s 14 home wins have been by more than a goal.

Fulham vs. Arsenal

 

Back Arsenal in the head-to-head at 1.66 (Betfair)

Fulham have won just once this campaign, which came against Burnley during their barren run. Their other six fixtures have resulted in two draws and four defeats. Arsenal have won five straight and historically have a good record at Craven Cottage, where they’ve won on their last two visits

Back Fulham +1.5 at 1.50 (bet365)
Back Arsenal to win by 1 goal at 3.65 (BetEasy)

Five of Arsenal’s six away wins over the last 12 months have been by 1 goal.

Southampton vs. Chelsea

 

Back Chelsea in the head-to-head at 1.62 (Unibet)

Southampton have a 0-2-3 record as the home underdog over the last 12 months and they have lost their last five straight fixtures against Chelsea. Southampton have started the season with a poor 1-2-4 record and have lost their last two fixtures by a combined 5 goals to nil. Chelsea have made a strong 5-2-0 start to the season under new manager Maurizio Sarri. Their 1-1 draw with Liverpool last week highlighted how much they have closed the perceived gap on one of the main title favourites. Chelsea have won their last three fixtures at St Mary’s Stadium.

Liverpool vs. Man City

 

Back Liverpool in the head-to-head at 2.54 (Betfair)
Back Liverpool in the draw no bet at 1.80 (bet365)
Back Liverpool +0.5 at 1.44 (bet365)

Both sides have started the campaign with 6-1-0 records, but Liverpool have had the tougher schedule. In all competitions Liverpool beat Man City in 3 of their 4 meetings last season, including both fixtures at Anfield. This extended Liverpool’s strong run of 6-2-0 against Man City when at home.

Back over 2.5 goals at 1.67 (Betfair)

Six of the last eight meetings between the two at Anfield went over 2.5 goals and all four meetings between the two last season went over this mark.
