Huddersfield vs. Tottenham


Back Tottenham in the head-to-head at 1.40 (TopBetta)

At 1.40 odds Tottenham represent reasonable value given they are 10-3-1 as the away favourite over the last 12 months and Huddersfield are a newly promoted team. Tottenham have won their last five straight EPL away fixtures. Huddersfield haven’t lost at home this season but they haven’t faced a side of Tottenham’s calibre. After a promising start they’re winless in their last four games, having failed to score in three of them.

West Ham vs. Swansea


Back West Ham in the head-to-head at 1.88 (Unibet)

West Ham’s games tend to go as expected at home. Over the last 12 months they have gone 1-1-6 as the home underdog and 6-3-1 as the home favourite. They have won 4 of their last 5 home games against Swansea. Swansea have gone 4-4-11 away from home over the last 12 months. They have started the 2017/18 campaign slowly, with victory over the struggling Crystal Palace their only win.

West Brom vs. Watford


Back Watford +1.5 in the Asian Handicap at 1.20 (bet365)

West Brom boast a 8-2-1 record as the home favourite over the last 12 months however they’ve started 2017/18 slowly, with draws against Stoke City and West Ham in their last two home games. On the road Watford are off to a flying start under new manager Marco Silva. They have won all three away fixtures so far this season, seeing off Bournemouth, Southampton and Swansea. West Brom have struggled for goals of late. It’s rare for them to score more than one goal in a game so if they do nick a win I expect it to be by just one goal.

Man Utd vs. Crystal Palace


Back Man Utd in the head-to-head at 1.19 (Betfair)
Back Man Utd -1.5 in the Asian Handicap at 1.55 (Mad Bookie)
Back Man Utd to win to nil at 1.69 (Mad Bookie)

Man Utd have started their EPL campaign with a 5-1-0 record. Their three opening home fixtures have resulted in a 4-0 win against West Ham, a 2-0 win against Leicester and 4-0 win against Everton. Crystal Palace haven’t scored a goal in any of their six games this EPL campaign and they have failed to score in all four previous visits to Old Trafford since being promoted back into the Premier League.

Arsenal vs. Brighton


Back Arsenal in the head-to-head at 1.25 (Unibet)
Back Arsenal to win to nil at 2.00 (Sportsbet)

Arsenal have won their last eight straight home EPL fixtures and have gone 15-2-1 as the home favourite over the last 12 months. Since Round 1 no visitor to Emirates Stadium has found the back of the net. Brighton have gone 0-1-2 on the road since promotion, scoring just one goal in those three games. The best of those three opponents finished on 46 points last season, so this is a big step up to Arsenal, who picked up 75 points.

Everton vs. Burnley


Back Everton in the head-to-head at 1.67 (Palmerbet)
Back the 1-1 draw at 8.00 (Betfair)

Everton have gone 13-2-3 at home over the last 12 months and 11-1-0 as the home favourite. Everton have struggled for goals this season but perhaps Oumar Niasse is the answer to their scoring woes. Niasse scored as a substitute in Everton’s 3-0 league cup win over Sunderland and he scored twice against Bournemouth last week. Burnley, meanwhile, have gone 2-6-12 away from home over the last 12 months. They have managed to nick two 1-1 away draws against quality opponents over the past few weeks, which is why I have thrown in the 1-1 correct score selection as insurance. You might also like 0-0 at 10.50 odds.

Back under 2.5 goals at 1.75 (bet365)

Only Chelsea have managed to score more than 1 goal against Burnley this season. Since that Round 1 fixture Burnley have enjoyed 3 clean sheets, with visits to Tottenham and Liverpool only resulting in one goal conceded in each game. Burnley’s last 5 fixtures have all gone under 2.5 goals, with 3 going under 1.5 goals.
