Huddersfield vs. West Ham

 

Back West Ham in the head-to-head at 2.25 (BlueBet, Palmerbet, Sportsbet)

This is more a bet against Huddersfield than it is a bet on West Ham. Huddersfield have gone 1-0-9 as the home underdog over the last 12 months and have gone 1-1-6 in their last eight home games. West Ham have only been the away favourite once during this time, but they did win that fixture. A lack of goals has been Huddersfield’s undoing, with the side failing to score a goal in seven of their last eight home games. West Ham did the double over Huddersfield last season and they won this fixture 4-1.

Leicester City vs. Burnley

Back Leicester City -1.5 at 2.35 (bet365)

This will be Leicester City’s first home fixture since the tragic death of owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha. The team and its fans will be pumped up and will be taking on a Burnley side that has regressed badly since last season. Leicester City have won their last two home fixtures against Burnley to nil while Burnley enter this clash having lost seven of their last ten fixtures, with six of those defeats coming by 2+ goal margins. Five of Leicester City’s seven home wins over the last 12 months have been by 2+ goals.

Southampton vs. Watford

Back Watford in the head-to-head at 3.05 (Unibet)

Southampton have a poor 1-4-6 record this season and their only goal in their last six games came from the penalty spot in a 6-1 defeat to Man City last week. Southampton have been poor at home for a while, having a 2-8-7 record at St Mary’s Stadium over the last 12 months. Watford wasted good opportunities against Newcastle last week but have only conceded one goal in their last three games. Watford won this fixture 2-0 last season.

Crystal Palace vs. Tottenham

 

Back Tottenham in the head-to-head at 1.85 (Betfair)

Crystal Palace have only scored two home goals this season and both were from the penalty spot against Arsenal. They have a 0-2-6 record as the home underdog over the last 12 months while Tottenham have gone 10-3-3 as the away favourite. Tottenham have won their last 4 away fixtures while Crystal Palace have gone 0-2-3 at home this campaign. Tottenham have a 4-0-1 record at Selhurst Park since Palace’s promotion and they have won their last three fixtures at this venue as well as their last six head to heads against Palace.

Back the Crystal Palace 0-1 Tottenham correct scoreline at 9.50 (bet365)

Tottenham have won each of their last four fixtures against Crystal Palace and all four wins were by 1-0 scorelines. Going back further, six of the last ten fixtures between Crystal Palace and Tottenham resulted in 1-0 wins for the Spurs.

Liverpool vs. Fulham

 

Back Liverpool -1.5 at 1.30 (bet365)
Back Liverpool -2.5 at 1.77 (bet365)

Liverpool have gone 13-6-0 at home over the last 12 months with 10 of those 13 wins coming by 2+ goal margins and 9 coming by 3+ goal margins. Fulham have gone 0-1-5 away from home since promotion, with 4 of those 5 defeats coming by 2+ goal margins. Fulham’s defence has been their undoing, with even the toothless Huddersfield scoring against them last week. Prior to that they slipped 3 against Bournemouth, 4 against Cardiff, 5 against Arsenal and 3 against Everton.

Chelsea vs. Everton

 

Back Chelsea in the head-to-head at 1.41 (Betfair)

Chelsea have gone 12-4-2 as the home favourite over the last 12 months and they have started the season under new manager Maurizio Sarri with an 8-3-0 record. Everton have been going okay at the moment but against the top sides they have struggled, recording defeats to Arsenal and Man Utd. Chelsea have gone 6-2-0 against Everton at home over the last eight years.

Arsenal vs. Wolverhampton

 

Back Arsenal in the head-to-head at 1.61 (Betfair)

Arsenal have gone 14-0-1 as the home favourite over the last 12 months and they take on a Wolves team that has lost its last three.

Manchester City vs. Manchester United

 

Back Man Utd +1.5 at 1.91 (bet365)

Four of the last five EPL meetings between the two were won by the away team. Man Utd won this fixture 3-2 last season and have a 2-1-1 record as the away underdog over the last 12 months. Man City haven’t beaten Man Utd by more than a 1-goal margin since 2014.
