Tottenham vs. Arsenal


Back Tottenham in the head-to-head at 2.06 (Pinnacle)
Back Tottenham in the draw now bet (0 Asian Handicap) market at 1.56 (Betfair)

Tottenham have a 15-4-1 EPL record at home over the last 12 months while Arsenal have gone 0-1-4 as the away underdog. Tottenham have a 4-2-1 record at home against Arsenal in their last 7 meetings.

Back Tottenham to win by 1 goal at 3.95 (Crownbet)

Four of Tottenham’s last 5 wins over Arsenal were by 1 goal. The close margins don’t surprise given their fierce rivalry.

West Ham vs. Watford


Back Watford +0.5 at 1.60 (Pinnacle)

Watford have shown promising signs under new coach Javi Gracia. They’ve picked up 4 points from 2 games, including last week’s 4-1 win over Chelsea. West Ham’s inability to keep clean sheets continues to cost them as they’ve failed to win their last two home games. West Ham’s last 8 opponents have scored against them. They limp into this fixture on the back of a 3-1 defeat to Brighton, a side not known for their scoring prowess.

Back both teams to score at 1.75 (Ladbrokes, Bookmaker, Betstar)

Both teams have scored in each of West Ham’s last 8 games while the same can be said for 8 of Watford’s last 12 games. Three of the last 4 meetings between the two saw both teams score, including both fixtures hosted by West Ham. Watford’s last two visits to West Ham have seen 10 goals in total scored.

Everton vs. Crystal Palace


Back Everton in the head-to-head at 2.30 (bet365)

I was initially on the fence for this fixture. While Everton do boast a 13-1-1 record as the home favourite over the last 12 months, Crystal Palace have a strong 2-2-0 record at Goodison Park since their promotion. The reason I’m now leaning towards backing Everton is the news that Palace talisman Wilfried Zaha is out for a month with a knee injury. Crystal Palace are a much weaker side when he’s not playing. Zaha’s injury is in addition to Bakery Sako, Jason Puncheon, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Julian Speroni, Connor Wickham, Scott Dann and Martin Kelly.

Swansea vs. Burnley


Back Swansea in the head-to-head at 2.51 (Pinnacle)

Swansea have found a new lease of life under coach Carlos Carvalhal. Their 3-2-1 run has seen them claw their way out of the relegation zone, despite three of those fixtures being against top seven sides. Their last two home games have seen Swansea beat Liverpool 1-0 and Arsenal 3-1 and Swansea now take on a team that doesn’t have a strong away record. Burnley have lost both previous EPL visits to Swansea.

Back Swansea in the draw no bet (0 Asian Handicap) market at 1.73 (Betfair)
Back Swansea +0.5 at 1.40 (Betfair)

For those who wish to be more conservative, Burnley are more than capable of nicking away draws but you have to go back to November for the last time they won an away game.

Manchester City vs. Leicester


Back Man City in the head-to-head at 1.242 (Pinnacle)

Man City drew away at Burnley last week but every time Manchester City have lost or drawn in the EPL this season they’ve follow it up with a win. Man City also boast a 16-4-0 home record in the EPL over the last 12 months. Leicester City are on a decent run, but most of their points have come at home. They’ve gone 0-1-3 in their last 4 EPL away fixtures.

Huddersfield vs. Bournemouth


Back Bournemouth in the head-to-head at 2.44 (Betfair)

Huddersfield are on an 8-game winless run and they’ve lost their last 5 straight. Much of their recent woes are due to their inability to find the back of the net, with the side scoring just 1 goal in their last 6 games. Bournemouth are unbeaten in their last 7 and their most recent away fixture saw them win 3-0 against Chelsea. They’re in good form and full of confidence, which is the exact opposite of what can be said for Huddersfield. The previous EPL meeting between the two sides saw Bournemouth run out 4-0 winners in November.

Back Bournemouth to win to nil at 3.75 (Mad Bookie)

Eleven of Huddersfield’s 14 defeats this season have been to nil, while 3 of Bournemouth’s 4 away wins were to nil.

Back Bournemouth in the draw no bet (0 Asian Handicap) market at 1.69 (Betfair)
Back Bournemouth +0.5 at 1.40 (Betfair)

Those who wish to be more conservative might want to opt for the draw no bet or Asian Handicap market due to the fact that Bournemouth have drawn 8 away games over the last 12 months which is double their number of away wins.

Newcastle vs. Manchester United


Back Man Utd in the head-to-head at 1.675 (Pinnacle)

Man Utd have gone 9-2-1 as the away favourite over the last 12 months while Newcastle have gone 0-1-2 as the home underdog since rejoining the Premier League. Newcastle have failed to win their last 8 EPL home fixtures.

Southampton vs. Liverpool


Back Liverpool in the head-to-head at 1.82 (Unibet)

Southampton have gone 0-2-3 as the home underdog over the last 12 months while Liverpool have gone 11-2-2 as the away favourite.
