West Ham vs. Arsenal


Back over 2.5 goals at 1.57 (bet365)

Twelve of the last 15 fixtures between the two have gone over 2.5 goals, including 6 of the last 7 meetings hosted by West Ham. Over the last 12 months 15 of Arsenal’s 18 away fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals.

Burnley vs. Fulham


Back Burnley in the head-to-head at 2.45 (Unibet)
Back Burnley +0 (draw no bet) at 1.73 (Betfair)
Back Burnley +0.5 at 1.41 (Betfair)

Both teams have had poor seasons, but in recent weeks Burnley’s form has been stronger than Fulham’s. The hosts have won 2 of their last 3 home games and they have won their last two EPL fixtures. Fulham have gone 0-2-9 away from home this season and were dumped out of the FA Cup at home last week by League Two side Oldham Athletic.

Crystal Palace vs. Watford


Back under 2.5 goals at 1.76 (Betfair)

Crystal Palace continue to struggle for goals, but defensively they have been sound, with only Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham keeping more than their 8 clean sheets this season. Palace’s last five home games have all gone under 2.5 goals while over the last 12 months 13 of Palace’s 18 home games and 13 of Watford’s 18 away games have gone under the total.

Back under 3.5 goals at 1.28 (Betfair)

Further to the above, none of the 7 previous EPL meetings between the two saw more than three goals.

Cardiff City vs. Huddersfield


Back Cardiff City in the head-to-head at 2.28 (Betfair)
Back Cardiff City +0 (draw no bet) at 1.57 (Betfair)

This is more a bet against Huddersfield, who are on an 8-game losing streak. They sit bottom of the interactive EPL form guide for fixtures against weak opponents. Huddersfield have lost each of their last six fixtures against such opponents. Cardiff City have a 2-0-1 record as the home favourite this season and in the interactive EPL form guide for home fixtures against weak opponents, Cardiff City have won four straight.

Chelsea vs. Newcastle


Back Chelsea in the head-to-head at 1.25 (bet365)

Despite the short odds I’m still prepared to back Chelsea. They’ve won their last 5 straight at home against Newcastle and the visitors are 0-0-3 away from home against strong opponents this season.

Everton vs. Bournemouth


Back Everton in the head-to-head at 1.82 (Betfair)

As bad as Everton’s form has been over the last couple months, Bournemouth’s has been worse. The visitors have lost 8 of their last 11 games and they’ve lost their last three visits to Goodison Park. Bournemouth have lost their last 5 straight away fixtures.

Tottenham vs. Manchester United


Back No in the Both Teams To Score market at 2.45 (Unibet)

In only 1 of the last 9 meetings between the two did both teams score. Both teams have scored in only 7 of Tottenham’s 19 home fixtures over the last 12 months.

Manchester City vs. Wolverhampton


Back Man City in the head-to-head at 1.19 (Betfair)

Manchester City are right back in the title race after defeating Liverpool in the previous round. They’ve gone 16-1-2 at home over the last 12 months and were unlucky in their 1-1 draw away against Wolverhampton earlier in the season. At the time of writing City are as short as 1.12 with some bookmakers.
