Fulham vs. Watford


Back Watford +0.5 at 1.60 (bet365)

Fulham have started their EPL campaign with a 1-1-3 record, with their only victory coming against the out-of-sorts Burnley. Watford have gone 4-0-1, which included a win over Tottenham, so based on current form I will side with the visitors.

Leicester City vs. Huddersfield


Back Leicester City in the head-to-head at 1.60 (Neds, Unibet, Palmerbet)

This is more a bet against Huddersfield, who continue to struggle for goals. Their home defeat to Crystal Palace last week extended their winless run to 9 games. Leicester City have gone 3-0-4 over the last 7 games, spanning this season and the last, but that included fixtures against Arsenal, Tottenham, Man Utd and Liverpool. They scored at least 1 goal in each of those games and 15 in total, which bodes well against the goal-shy Huddersfield.

Back Leicester City to win to nil at 2.50 (Neds)

Of Huddersfield’s 11 away defeats over the last 12 months, 10 were to nil. Of Leicester City’s 7 home wins, 5 were to nil. The last time the two sides met at King Power Stadium, Leicester prevailed 3-0.

Burnley vs. Bournemouth


Back Bournemouth +0.5 at 1.45 (Neds)

Burnley manager Sean Dyche said his team are “in a bit of a fog” after their 0-1 defeat to Wolves, with the scoreline actually flattering Burnley, who rarely threatened whilst riding their luck as Wolves wasted a number of opportunities to extend their lead. Burnley are now winless in their last 10 games and have lost 6 of their last 7. Bournemouth, meanwhile, have gone 5-1-1 in their last 7. That run includes a 2-1 away win over Burnley in August.

Crystal Palace vs. Newcastle


Back Wilfried Zaha to score a goal at 2.80 (Neds)

Zaha has scored eight goals in his last 10 league appearances. He was prolific in pre-season too.

Back the Crystal Palace 2-1 Newcastle correct score at 9.50 (bet365)
Back the Crystal Palace 1-2 Newcastle correct score at 15.00 (bet365)

Newcastle have had a 0-1-4 start to the season, but they have had an incredibly tough run of opponents to start the campaign. We’ll learn more about their form after fixtures such as these.
For a bit of fun I’ve opted for the 2-1 and 1-2 correct scorelines. For Crystal Palace 3 of their last 12 fixtures resulted in this scoreline, while a whopping 7 of Newcastle’s last 12 fixtures ended in this score.

Arsenal vs. Everton


Back Arsenal in the head-to-head at 1.50 (Sportsbet)

Under new manager Unai Emery, Arsenal have shown signs of settling in, with the side picking up three consecutive wins. They will feature in the Europa League during the week, but that fixture is at home so travel fatigue won’t be an issue. They come into this fixture having won six of their last seven against Everton, who have had an indifferent 1-3-1 start to the campaign, despite having an easy fixture list. Arsenal have gone 14-0-1 as the home favourite over the last 12 months.

Back over 2.5 goals at 1.50 (Unibet)

Arsenal still look vulnerable defensively as they continue to adapt to playing the ball out from the back. They have conceded in every game this season, with even Cardiff scoring twice, but have enjoyed a good run courtesy of scoring eight goals in their last three fixtures. Over the last 12 months, 14 of Arsenal’s 19 home fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals. Everton have gone over 2.5 in five of their last six fixtures.

Back both teams to score at 1.63 (Unibet)

Both teams have scored in Arsenal’s last four fixtures, while both sides have scored in Everton’s last seven games. The last four meetings between the two saw both teams score.
