Arsenal vs. Man City


Man City in the head-to-head at 1.53 (Picklebet)

Note: at the time of writing Man City have not yet played their midweek fixture against Brentford.

Arsenal are great at putting away weaker sides, but they struggle against the best sides in the league. Over the last 12 months the Gunners have gone 0-1-3 as the home underdog and they’ve lost nine straight games against Man City. Seven of those nine defeats were by 2+ goals. City have gone 18-1-2 away from home over the last 12 months and they scored 17 total goals in their last three games. Man City beat Arsenal 5-0 earlier in the season and they bring a nine-game winning streak into this clash. City have kept the Gunners goalless in their last five meetings.

Leicester City vs. Norwich



Leicester City in the head-to-head at 1.41 (Picklebet)

This is primarily a bet against Norwich, who looked relegation-bound in their terrible performance against Crystal Palace midweek. The Canaries have now lost five games in a row, all without scoring a goal. Four of those five defeats were by 2+ goals and three were by 3+ goals. Leicester City have won three straight home games, which includes a win over Liverpool during the week.

Watford vs. Tottenham


Tottenham in the head-to-head at 1.66 (Picklebet)

Watford limp into this fixture on the back of five consecutive defeats. The squad has had to deal with a covid outbreak, which meant they only managed one full training session in two weeks leading up to their midweek thrashing at the hands of West Ham. Tottenham bring 4-2-0 form into this clash and will be fuming that it isn’t 5-1-0 form given they had 11 shots on target compared to Southampton’s 2 in their 1-1 draw midweek.

Crystal Palace vs. West Ham


Both teams to score at 1.75 (bet365)

Both teams scored in each of the last nine meetings between the two sides. The last two games between Crystal Palace and West ham resulted in 2-2 and 2-3 scorelines.

Chelsea vs. Liverpool


Under 2.5 goals at 1.95 (Picklebet)

Fourteen of the last 23 meetings between the two sides went under 2.5 goals, including the last three clashes.

Man Utd vs. Wolves


Note: at the time of writing Man Utd have not yet played their midweek fixture against Burnley.

Under 2.5 goals at 1.96 (Picklebet)
Under 1.5 goals at 3.75 (Picklebet)

Man Utd have failed to spark on offence over the last few weeks but they have been solid defensively. This has seen their last three games go under 2.5 goals. Wolverhampton’s last eight Premier League fixtures plus their last five away games went under 2.5 goals. Seven of those eight games went under 1.5 goals and three finished goalless. Only 3 of Wolverhampton’s 19 away games over the last 12 months went over 2.5 goals. Wolves’ last three visits to Old Trafford went under this total. Three of the last four meetings between the two went under 1.5 goals.

Under 0.5 first half Man Utd goals at 2.10 (Picklebet)
0:0 halftime correct score at 3.00 (bet365)

Man Utd have only scored one first half goal in their last seven games while Wolverhampton have kept a clean sheet in the first half of their last eleven games. Seven of the last eight fixtures for Wolverhampton went into halftime at 0:0, while the same can be said for three of Man Utd’s last five games.
