West Ham vs. Tottenham


Back Tottenham in the head-to-head at 1.65 (Betfair)

West Ham have gone 1-1-6 over the last 12 months when installed as the home underdog, while Tottenham have gone 10-3-1 as the away favourite. Tottenham have looked more convincing on the road that at home this season, beating Newcastle 2-0 and Everton 3-0. Tottenham come into this fixture having won their last 4 straight away fixtures.

Burnley vs. Huddersfield


Back Under 2.5 goals at 1.57 (Unibet)

After a 3-0 win over the out-of-sorts Crystal Palace in their opening fixture, goals have been hard to come by for Huddersfield, who have scored just one goal in their last three EPL fixtures (and were beaten 1-0 by Crystal Palace in the league cup mid-week). Their last four games have all gone under 2.5 goals. It’s been a similar story for Burnley. Since upsetting Chelsea 3-2 in their opening fixture they haven’t scored more than a goal in an EPL game since, with their last four fixtures all going under 2.5 goals.

Southampton vs. Manchester United


Back Manchester United in the head-to-head at 1.80 (Palmerbet)

Southampton’s home form has been dreadful of late, largely driven by the fact that they have only scored in one of their last eight EPL home games. Over the last 12 months they have gone 0-1-4 as the home underdog. Man Utd, meanwhile, have found goals easy to come by, scoring at least 2 in every EPL fixture this season and scoring 4 goals in three of their opening five fixtures. Man Utd have gone 9-3-0 over the last 12 months when installed as the away favourite. Defensively United have been sound as well, keeping 6 clean sheets in their last 7 EPL fixtures. There’s a good chance they will win to nil this weekend (2.88 odds with Sportsbet).

Manchester City vs. Crystal Palace


Back Manchester City in the head-to-head at 1.15 (Unibet)
Back Manchester City -2.0 in the Asian Handicap at 1.68 (Sportsbet)
Back Manchester City to win to nil at 1.83 (Sportsbet)

Man City are in sublime form at the moment, having beaten Liverpool 5-0 at home and Watford 6-0 away prior to this fixture. City have gone 8-1-0 in their last nine EPL games. Crystal Palace limp into this fixture on the back of six consecutive EPL defeats and have failed to score in all of them. There is some light at the end of the tunnel, however. I expect Palace to improve under Roy Hodgson and they will be buoyed by their 1-0 win over Huddersfield in the League Cup mid-week. Palace have also been given a huge boost with the returns of defenders Mamadou Sakho and Pape Souare. With that being said, they are still without talisman Wilfred Zaha and Palace have an atrocious record at the City of Manchester Stadium, where they have lost 1-0 (2013/14), 3-0 (2014/15), 4-0 (2015/16) and 5-0 (2016/17).

Swansea vs. Watford


Back Under 2.5 goals at 1.83 (Pinnacle)

Four out of Swansea’s five opening EPL fixtures have gone under 2.5 goals while 3 out of 5 have gone under 2.5 goals for Watford, with their two exceptions being games against Liverpool and Man City. For fixtures involving teams outside the top 8, every Swansea and Watford game has gone under 2.5 goals this campaign. All four previous games between Swansea and Watford have gone under 1.5 goals, with one 0-0 draw.

Arsenal vs. West Brom


Back Arsenal in the head-to-head at 1.37 (Betfair)
Back Both Teams to Score – No at 2.05 (William Hill)

Arsenal have gone 14-3-1 at home over the last 12 months while West Brom won only one game against sides in the top six last season. Arsenal have a 6-0-0 record at home against West Brom over the last six years. Of those six games, West Brom found the back of the net only once.
