As we approach the quarter pole of the 2023/2024 Premier League season, the title race is very much alive with four points separating the top five teams.
League leaders Tottenham kick off the weekend with a trip across London to face Crystal Palace early Saturday morning (AEDT) as they seek to preserve their unbeaten start to the season.
Matchweek 10 is headlined by the Manchester Derby as local bragging rights go on the line in England’s north.
It’s another busy weekend of action from England’s top division and we’ve got you covered with our match previews and best bets below!
Crystal Palace vs Tottenham
Saturday 28 October, 6:00am, Selhurst Park
Crystal Palace 1 – Tottenham 2
With no European football to worry about, Tottenham can focus all of their attention on their domestic campaign, even if it means they have the shortest possible turnaround after defeating Fulham on Tuesday morning (AEDT).
Getting up for this game should not be an issue for them with James Maddison and Son Heung-Min leading the way as two of the Premier League’s in form attackers.
Palace came out of the international break flat and were dismantled 4-0 by Newcastle and it’s tough to see them having much better luck here.
Spurs are in form and should be able to ensure they spend another week on top of the Premier League ladder.
Tottenham to Win @ $1.80
Chelsea vs Brentford
Saturday 28 October, 10:30pm, Stamford Bridge
Just when you thought Chelsea were going to move on from their poor start to the season, the Blues produced a monumental collapse at home to Arsenal last week to drop two points.
Instead they had to settle for a frustrating draw that left them 11 points off the pace already.
Brentford on the other hand recorded their first win in all competitions since the end of August, ending a six match run that produced just two Premier League points.
Scoring has not been a problem for them and I like their chances to breach the Chelsea backline at least once, however I can’t bring myself to back either team with any confidence and I’ll instead land on the overs.
Both have their frailties at the back and you wonder if there will be any residual effects from the Blues late collapse last weekend.

Arsenal vs Sheffield United
Sunday 29 October, 1:00am, Emirates Stadium
Now for the most lopsided market of the weekend and short of Arsenal’s entire first team not getting let into the Emirates Stadium by security, Sheffield don’t really have much of a case in their favour.
They have lost their last five matches and have just one point this season, leaving them anchored to the foot of the table.
Arsenal will be coming back from a Champions League encounter in Spain with Sevilla which might mean they are a bit off the pace early.
However they are good enough to ensure they do enough to win, there’s just not much value backing them to do that.
Martin Odegaard has popped up with three goals already this season and I like him to add to his tally here, Sheffield have already shipped 24 goals on the season.

Bournemouth vs Burnley
Sunday 29 October, 1:00am, Vitality Stadium
Bournemouth 2 – Burnley 1
Two teams in desperate need of a confidence boost face off this weekend and they will have circled this one as a possible get right game.
Bournemouth has not won a Premier League match all season, drawing three and losing six, including their last four.
Burnley at least has a win to their name, although that came against Luton and they have lost seven of their nine league matches to date.
You can’t back both teams to lose and you would be hard pressed to back either one with any confidence so let’s just sit on the fence and take the draw.
Draw @ $3.40
Wolves vs Newcastle
Sunday 29 October, 3:30am, Molineux Stadium
Wolves are starting to produce some positive results with eight points from their last four matches, however it looks like it will come to an end this weekend whe they take on a red hot Newcastle side.
The Magpies have picked up 13 of a possible 15 points and are easily the better team here, I would be very surprised to see them drop points even off their Champions League exertions.
It might be a bit closer than it would have been a month or so ago when Wolves were trying to settle into an identity, so I’ll play it safe and back Newcastle straight up.
Newcastle to Win @ $1.73
West Ham vs Everton
Monday 30 October, 12:00am, London Stadium
West Ham ran into a buzzsaw last weekend at Villa Park, but I like their chances of bouncing back against Everton.
Even though the Toffees have been better of late, they still are not consistent enough to really have a lot of confidence in.
It’s not the most complicated of breakdowns but the Irons are the better side and are at home, they should win this and look to be a little bit over the odds.
West Ham to Win @ $2.05
Aston Villa vs Luton
Monday 30 October, 12:00am, Villa Park
Three Premier League teams have taken 13 points from their last 15, one of them is Aston Villa.
Unai Emery has this side humming along nicely with the second best goals for tally in the Premier League, scoring 11 in their last three games alone.
The same cannot be said for Luton who at least have found a way off the foot of the table, picking up another hard earned point off Forest last week.
However I’m happy to ride the hot team and Villa is a must follow side, they should win this one by a fair margin.
Aston Villa to Win and Over 2.5 Goals @ $1.73
Brighton And Hove Albion vs Fulham
Monday 30 October, 1:00am, Amex Stadium
Brighton’s domestic form is a cause for concern with one draw and three defeats from their last four outings.
While they did hold City to a 2-1 defeat, they were never really in that match, but Fulham might be the opponent they were waiting for to correct their course.
Defensively they are yet to keep a Premier League clean sheet, with both teams to score hitting in all nine of their matches.
Fulham are not the most dangerous team in attack, and don’t appear to have the firepower to score enough to win this game but they should be able to keep that both teams to score streak going.
Brighton to Win and Both Teams to Score @ $2.65
Liverpool vs Nottingham Forest
Monday 30 October, 1:00am, Anfield
Liverpool 3 – Nottingham Forest 0
Let’s keep this one as simple as possible, Liverpool are good and Forest are not.
The Reds returned to winning ways against Everton after a couple of rough matches prior to the international break and they should be able to pick up all three points here.
Forest have drawn four of their last five but they all came against teams in the bottom half of the Premier League table, including a 2-2 draw with Luton last weekend.
I’m not expecting this one to be close at all as Liverpool look well placed to record a convincing win.
Liverpool to Win -1 Goal @ $1.75
Manchester United vs Manchester City
Monday 30 October, 2:30am, Old Trafford
Manchester United 0 – Manchester City 3
They couldn’t have picked a better match to finish off the weekend with, the Manchester Derby promises plenty of drama even at this early stage of the campaign.
United just held on for a 1-0 win in the Champions League at home during the week, doing the confidence of embattled keeper Andre Onana a world of good.
However he is likely to come under a barrage of pressure from City’s all star forward line even without Kevin De Bruyne.
United did manage to knock off City in their home derby last season, but I just can’t see them having the wherewithal to get over the line, especially if City gets off to a fast start.
Manchester City to Win @ $1.70
We are now over a quarter of the way through the 2022/23 Premier League season, which means some clubs can start to panic about their slow starts.
One clubs who has no need to critique their form so far is Arsenal, with a home date against Liverpool on the horizon and their recent run of results against the Reds suggests this might be the fixture where we can decide on the legitimacy of their title challenge.
Overall it’s a bit of a different look in the fixture list this week with no early Saturday match and a backloaded Sunday evening.
Find our previews and best bets for every contest below.
Bournemouth vs Leicester
Sunday 9 October, 1:00am, Vitality Stadium
Bournemouth 2 – Leicester 1
Leicester is finally off the mark, picking up its first win of the season with a 4-0 thumping of Nottingham Forest that was well and truly out of character based on what we’ve seen to date.
However one game against a relegation rival is not enough to swing me around on the Foxes dire prospects in most matches.
Bournemouth’s unbeaten run under Gary O’Neil continued with a third draw in four outings, as they continue to try and right the ship after a horror run in August.
There’s no case for either team to win but there’s also enough to suggest it might not be a loss for either team either.
Back the Draw @ $3.40
Chelsea vs Wolves
Sunday 9 October, 1:00am, Stamford Bridge
It wasn’t that pretty but Chelsea did enough to beat Crystal Palace in Graham Potter’s first league match in charge.
Up next is a Wolves side that, as has been the case for most of the last two seasons, seemingly cannot score to save themselves.
They have been held scoreless in three of their last four outings and their only time scoring more than one goal was a League Cup fixture against Preston.
Chelsea might be working things out defensively but they probably won’t be tested that much by an impotent Wolves strike force.
Back Chelsea to Win to Nil @ $2.15
Manchester City vs Southampton
Sunday 9 October, 1:00am, Etihad Stadium
Manchester City 4 – Southampton 0
Spare a thought for those who have to continually come up with superlatives to sum up Erling Haaland and his start to life at Manchester City.
The Norwegian is seemingly unstoppable, especially at the Etihad where he has already worn out the turf with his endless goal celebrations.
Now ask yourself, do you really expect Southampton of all clubs to find a way to stop him?
Back Man City HT/FT and Erling Haaland to Score 2+ Goals @ $2.77
Newcastle vs Brentford
Sunday 9 October, 1:00am, St James’ Park
Newcastle 5 – Brentford 1
Newcastle might still be without a number of key players for this fixture but I’m very confident that they can take care of business against Brentford.
The Bees have now gone 180 minutes without a goal and battled to a scoreless draw last weekend while Newcastle put four past Fulham.
Admittedly it was helped by an eighth minute red card, but even so, they wasted no time jumping out to a 3-0 lead at halftime.
Look for Callum Wilson to kick start the Magpies attack early on and Brentford won’t enjoy playing catch up.
Back Newcastle to Win and Over 2.5 Goals @ $2.65
Brighton And Hove Albion vs Tottenham
Sunday 9 October, 3:30am, Amex Stadium
Consistency still continues to elude Tottenham as they go on the road for the third straight match to accommodate the NFL at their home stadium.
In their two post-International break matches, they have lost to Arsenal and had a scoreless draw against Frankfurt in the Champions League.
Brighton on the other hand continues to impress, taking a point from their trip to Anfield as their early season top four assault rolls on.
A win for the Seagulls would see them draw level on points with Spurs and the market seems to indicate this is a game where punters are having a hard time separating the two sides.
With a case to be made both ways I’ll avoid backing the result and instead take a slightly safer option with the overs.
Back Over 2.5 Goals @ $1.82
Crystal Palace vs Leeds
Monday 10 October, 12:00am, Selhurst Park
Crystal Palace 2 – Leeds 1
There’s a remarkable amount of symmetry with these clubs as they prepare for this fixture.
Both are on four game winless runs with just two draws in that time, but there’s something about Palace that has me feeling pretty confident in their chances of picking up a win here.
They showed something against Chelsea and were unlucky to not collect a point from the Blues.
But I’ll back them to finish with all three here.
Back Crystal Palace to Win @ $2.05
West Ham vs Fulham
Monday 10 October, 12:00am, London Stadium
No Mitrovic, no Fulham?
That’s the play for this one with the Serbian reportedly set to miss this fixture with an ankle injury.
His absence will take their attacking firepower from a rocket launcher to something more akin to a bow and arrow, which is good news for a West Ham side that has used it’s European commitments to find some form.
They defeated Wolves 2-0 last weekend and I’ll back them to add another three points here.
Back West Ham to Win @ $1.73
Arsenal vs Liverpool
Monday 10 October, 2:30am, Emirates Stadium
There are two very different approaches you can take to the build up for this game depending on which club you want to discuss.
For Liverpool, a lacklustre start to the season has many wondering if their race has been run, but they do have a side that has given them few problems of late.
As for Arsenal, the current league leaders, most will want to use this as an opportunity to find out if they are legitimate title contenders.
Their lone Premier League win over Liverpool in the last six seasons came in the empty stadium era of July 2020, so putting their struggling opposition to the sword will go a long way towards firming up their title credentials.
Not only did the Gunners win the North London Derby last weekend, they dominated Spurs with some blistering play, and if they showcase a similar initiative they can get the job done.
It’s with plenty of trepidation, but I’m putting my faith in Arsenal here.
Back Arsenal to Win @ $2.50
Everton vs Manchester United
Monday 10 October, 5:00am, Goodison Park
Everton 1 – Manchester United 2
It could go from bad to worse if Manchester United fails to fire against Everton in the aftermath of their derby day humiliation.
Especially with the Toffees full of confidence as they extended their Premier League unbeaten run to six with a win over Southampton last week.
However with the way United has struggled domestically this season, you can very easily talk yourself into backing Everton to get something from this match.
In fact, that’s exactly what I’ve done.
Back Everton Win/Draw Double Chance @ $1.73
Nottingham Forest vs Aston Villa
Tuesday 11 October, 6:00am, The City Ground
Nottingham Forest 1 – Aston Villa 1
There is no need to overcomplicate this one, Forest cannot win a match at the moment and can last weekend’s loss to Leicester should have eradicated all benefit of the doubt.
Villa is going through their own stuff but they can at least generate something in attack and have a tangible plan going forward.
Back Aston Villa to Win @ $2.15
The top three contenders in the Premier League are starting to pull away from a very congested chasing pack ahead of Matchday 10.
All eyes are on Manchester United after their humiliating defeat last week and they will look to bounce back against Tottenham, possibly saving Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s job.
Things get underway with Arsenal visiting Leicester in what promises to be a hotly contested match.
We have run the rule over every match and found our best bets for the weekend right here!
Leicester vs Arsenal
Saturday 30 October, 10:30pm, King Power Stadium
Both of these teams have put together solid runs in the Premier League after some up and down results and will head into this fixture level on points.
Arsenal controlled their match against Aston Villa for a sixth consecutive Premier League match without defeat, while Leicester went to Brentford and came away with all three points, something other sides have struggled to do.
Last season this was a profitable fixture for the away team with Arsenal winning 3-1 at the King Power Stadium thanks to goals from David Luiz, Alex Lacazette and Nico Pepe.
There are some injury concerns on both sides that make jumping off the fence and backing one team to win a bit of a risky proposition.
Goals have been plentiful for both clubs lately with three of Arsenal’s last four Premier League matches and each of Leicester’s last five all having at least three goals.
Back Over 2.5 Goals @ $1.78
Burnley vs Brentford
Sunday 31 October, 1:00am, Turf Moor
Brentford might have dropped its last two matches but they did come against Chelsea and Leicester and they were far from disgraced on both occasions.
Burnley on the other hand still cannot win a Premier League game but have managed to draw three of their last four.
The visitors have the quality in attack to get after one of the worst backlines in the Premier League and I am not scared off the Premier League’s new boys just yet.
As slight underdogs against a side that has just four points from nine matches so far, take the value on the visitors.
Back Brentford to Win @ $2.75
Liverpool vs Brighton And Hove Albion
Sunday 31 October, 1:00am, Anfield
Liverpool has won its last two Premier League matches by a score of 5-0 and while beating Watford by that much was hardly an achievement, routing Manchester United at Old Trafford was one of the more memorable victories for the club.
It does not bode well for Brighton who will have gone 38 days since their last victory in all competitions and 42 days since their last win in the Premier League at kickoff.
Brighton might have won the last meeting between these sides but this is a very different situation for both clubs and I cannot back against Liverpool in their current form.
Back Liverpool to Win to Nil @ $2.00
Manchester City vs Crystal Palace
Sunday 31 October, 1:00am, Etihad Stadium
Manchester City 0 – Crystal Palace 2
Crystal Palace’s remarkable run of four consecutive draws will almost certainly come to an end when they head to Manchester this weekend.
Having taken a point from Brighton, Leicester, Arsenal and Newcastle they now face the unenviable task of trying to derail a City side that looks like it has found its stride.
They were ruthless against a usually stubborn Brighton side last week and look ready to go on with it as they keep pace with Chelsea and Liverpool while opening up a bit of a gap on the chasing pack.
For punters, the question here is “City by how much?” and then see where the value lies.
Having won both matches last season against Palace last season by keeping a clean sheet, I’ll follow that pattern in this game.
Back City to Win to Nil @ $1.80
Newcastle vs Chelsea
Sunday 31 October, 1:00am, St James’ Park
After putting seven past Norwich, Chelsea will take on a similarly leaky defence when they face Newcastle.
Perhaps the new owners of the club will look to invest in shoring up a team that has let in 20 goals in nine matches, but there is not a lot they can do about it until January.
In this instance their only hope will be to try and go after Chelsea but that could end badly.
Either way, this match should see plenty of goals scored, even if it’s only by one team.
Back Chelsea to Win & Over 2.5 Goals @ $2.05
Watford vs Southampton
Sunday 31 October, 1:00am, Vicarage Road
Watford 0 – Southampton 1
Seemingly out of nowhere, Watford decided to start playing really good football against Everton last weekend.
Their five goal outburst was more than they had scored in every Premier League match combined since their opening day win over Aston Villa.
Claudio Raneiri’s influence was evident on the side and they look like a good value play at home against a Southampton side that should not be favoured here.
Back Watford to Win @ $3.15
Tottenham vs Manchester United
Sunday 31 October, 3:30am, Tottenham Stadium
Tottenham 0 – Manchester United 3
Neutrals from all over may be tuning in to watch this match, but not for the reasons either club would have hoped for.
Manchester United bottomed out in a big way, getting humiliated by Liverpool at home while Tottenham sleepwalked their way to a 1-0 defeat against West Ham.
Neither side is offering a whole lot of encouragement for punters, especially United’s star studded lineup that is winless in their last four Premier League matches.
You have to wonder if that was the breaking point for United and it will kick start a correction but this has all of the makings of a stay away.
Norwich vs Leeds
Monday 1 November, 1:00am, Carrow Road
For this match, you are more inclined to back against Norwich than Leeds, although the former will see it as an opportunity for its first Premier League win in a very long time.
Not that you should feel good about backing them to do so, even at this price which is probably as short as it will ever get for Norwich.
Keep this one nice and simple and take the price on Leeds, Norwich have not scored a goal in their last four Premier League matches and while the visitors have not exactly been prolific, they are good enough to get the job done.
Back Leeds to Win @ $2.05
Aston Villa vs West Ham
Monday 1 November, 3:30am, Villa Park
Aston Villa 1 – West Ham 4
West Ham have had the better of Aston Villa lately, winning three and drawing the other three matches between the clubs since the start of the 2015-2016 season.
Villa has really struggled, losing its last three Premier League matches since defeating Manchester United at Old Trafford.
While the Irons’ defence has been quite strong, the Villains attack has at least been enough to keep them in most matches so Both Teams to Score is the way to go.

Wolves vs Everton
Tuesday 2 November, 7:00am, Molineux Stadium
As Wolves have come into form, Everton have faded out of contention, capitulating in their last outing which has scared the market into favouring Wolves.
Having claimed 10 points from their last four, including a hard fought draw with Leeds last week, Wolves should be able to take care of business against a shell shocked side.
Start your Cup Day with a nice bank builder on Wolves.
Back Wolves to Win @ $2.25
When the Premier League kicked off three and a bit months ago, there were a lot of predictions that were made.
However if you said that heading into the tenth weekend of the season, Tottenham would be leading the pack, Liverpool would have lost to Aston Villa 7-2 and Manchester City would be stuck in 13th place… let’s just say the odds of that would have been astronomical.
Just nine points separate the top 15 clubs and with upsets coming week in, week out, it’s turning into one of the toughest seasons to tip.
There’s a lot to look forward to this coming weekend with Tottenham’s credentials getting put to the test by a red hot Chelsea side.
Read on to see who we are backing in the Premier League this weekend.
Crystal Palace vs Newcastle
Saturday 28 November, 7:00am, Selhurst Park
Crystal Palace 0 – Newcastle 2
Roy Hodgson can claim Palace are not a one-man team in the form of Wilfried Zaha but recent evidence suggests otherwise.
With the Ivorian international missing, Palace slumped to a 1-0 loss against Burnley and it appears as though they will be missing him for their match against Newcastle.
In most cases that should direct a bet towards Newcastle but they have not looked all that strong in their most recent matches, losing 2-0 to Southampton and Chelsea.
This match could very easily come down to whoever scores first wins and with that in mind, I’ll take the safe play and back a low scoring contest, even at that price.
Back Under 2.5 Goals @ $1.65
Brighton and Hove Albion vs Liverpool
Saturday 28 November, 11:30pm, Amex Stadium
No Salah, no Mane, no van Dijk… you get the point, no worries for Liverpool as they dismantled Leicester last up.
It would be awfully remiss of them to dismiss the danger of a trip to Brighton turning into a trap game for them and Jurgen Klopp will continue his managerial masterclass, steering his side thought this challenging period.
It might not be the easiest match ever, but with Diogo Jota in the form he is in front of goal, there is no way I’m backing against him and the reigning champions.
Back Diogo Jota to Score and Liverpool to Win @ $3.25
Manchester City vs Burnley
Sunday 29 November, 2:00am, Etihad Stadium
Manchester City 5 – Burnley 0
In previous seasons, you might have been able to expect City to go through the motions in a match like this one, pass the ball around and find a way to get home with a comfortable if not flashy win.
Burnley scored their first goal since October 4th in their 1-0 win over Crystal Palace and on paper you would expect City to cruise home in this one.
More than anything else though, they need a win after taking one point off Liverpool and Tottenham in their last two league matches.
You could make a case that City might stumble again but with their history against Burnley, I’m not taking that bait.
City has won the last six matches in all competitions, five of which were to nil so that’s the play once again here as Pep finds a way to get them over the line.
Back Manchester City to Win to Nil @ $1.75
Everton vs Leeds
Sunday 29 November, 4:30am, Goodison Park
Leeds might have felt a bit hard done by to come away from their match against 10-man Arsenal with just a point but it was enough to end a two game losing streak.
Up next is sixth placed Everton whose recent run can only be described as “rough” with four points from their last five matches.
The Toffees needed every last bit of luck to hold off Fulham in a concerning second half but I still like their chances of getting by their visitors here.
Both teams to score has hit in nine of Everton’s last ten matches while Leeds have only been kept scoreless in the Premier League twice so far so you can add that on for some extra value.
SGM: Everton to Win and Both Teams to Score @ $3.32
West Bromwich Albion vs Sheffield United
Sunday 29 November, 7:00am, The Hawthorns
West Brom 1 – Sheffield United 0
There is really not a lot to get excited about in this fixture with the Premier League’s two winless sides facing off.
Normally when these two teams take to the pitch against anyone else you back against them as they both struggle to score, something which makes winning as close to impossible as can be without being actually impossible.
Sheffield have scored four goals on the season, three of which have come in their last five matches, while West Brom have managed just one goal in their last five.
With that in mind, there’s value to be had in the unders market with one goal seemingly all we can hope for at best.
Back Under 1.5 Goals @ $2.75
Southampton vs Manchester United
Monday 30 November, 1:00am, St Mary’s Stadium
Southampton 2 – Manchester United 3
At the start of November, there were serious concerns about the job security of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but three straight wins in all competitions have them looking like they might be back on track.
They have a huge test coming up against Southampton who have not lost a match since September 20 against Tottenham, winning five and drawing two in that time.
It’s time to start giving Southampton a bit of credit for how well they are playing but United look like they might be finding a rhythm as well so I’ll take the draw as neither side can gain the ascendency.

Chelsea vs Tottenham
Monday 30 November, 3:30am, Stamford Bridge
It’s the question many are asking, and others can’t quite bring themselves to get their head around, “are Tottenham legitimate title challengers?”
It’s hard to argue against what they are doing at the moment leading the league but Chelsea will give them a huge test of their credentials coming in on a six match winning streak.
Frank Lampard’s side have the edge in this matchup recently, winning the last three matches and usually keeping them at arm’s length.
That six match winning streak, combined with Spurs having to back up on a two days shorter turnaround after a Europa League match with Ludogorets is enough to swing me around to Chelsea.
Back Chelsea to Win @ $2.02
Arsenal vs Wolves
Monday 30 November, 6:15am, Emirates Stadium
Heading into the season there was a real sense of optimism that both of these clubs were primed to take the next step and challenge for a Champions League spot.
Safe to say these are two of the more disappointing teams so far relative to preseason expectations with Wolves in ninth and Arsenal three spots below.
The good news for both of these teams is that with the way the Premier League table is sitting, they are a few good weeks away from getting back into top four contention.
At this point, the match has all the makings of a line call so with Wolves clear outsiders, I’ll back them as a value play.
Back Wolves to Win @ $3.70
Leicester vs Fulham
Tuesday 1 December, 4:30am, King Power Stadium
How much should Leicester’s loss to Liverpool scare punters?
Not enough to have any faith in Fulham springing an upset, the far more likely outcome is a massive response from Leicester against one of the Premier League’s cellar dwellers.
Fulham did manage to run Everton close but still ultimately fell short and there are just too many difference makers on Leicester to see them get held down twice in a row.

Tuesday 1 December, 7:00am, London Stadium
West Ham 2 – Aston Villa 1
Matchweek 10 closes out with a claret and blue derby (or at least one of them) as Villa visits the Olympic Stadium.
If you just looked at recent form there’s a case to be made for West Ham having won their last two matches, until you see they were 1-0 squeakers against Sheffield United and Fulham,
Villa has lost three of its last four matches dropping points to Leeds, Southampton and Brighton but did win 3-0 against Arsenal in their last away trip.
This is another match where the two sides seem likely to cancel each other out and the draw will be the play here.
Back the Draw @ $3.35
It’s a light Saturday night of English Premier League action this weekend with a Saturday morning game and European commitments pushing a handful of games to Sunday night.
The biggest clash on the docket is definitely Liverpool taking on Tottenham in the rematch of the Champions League Final from June, although with considerably less on the line here.
Leicester is up to third thanks to the Premier League’s longest unbeaten run and are involved in the first match of the weekend with a trip to Southampton.
So without further ado, let’s get into it and preview all ten Premier League fixtures and find our recommended betting plays.
Southampton vs Leicester
Saturday 26 October, 6:00am, St Mary’s Stadium
Southampton 0 – Leicester 9
Something seems off with this market, Leicester is up to third place and Southampton have less than half the points down in 17th yet Leicester is over even money to win the match.
Perhaps it has something to do with the fact Leicester have taken just four points from four away matches but even so, do you really want to back Southampton to get anything out of this match?
The Foxes are a much better team and should win this game comfortably, jump on the value on offer.
Back Leicester to Win @ $2.30
Manchester City vs Aston Villa
Saturday 26 October, 10:30pm, Etihad Stadium
Manchester City 3 – Aston Villa 0
While Leicester represents a great value play, City do not.
You’ll have to hunt for some value here since City should be able to beat Aston Villa, but at $1.10 outright, there’s not a lot of value in that head to head market.
We’ll put that in a Same Game Multi but we’ll also take Both Teams to Score given City’s having so much trouble finding healthy defenders and Villa should be able to get at least one goal here.
Of course City will find ways to score more than a handful since Villa have conceded in their last four.
SGM: City to Win, Both Teams to Score, Over 3.5 Goals @ $2.70
Brighton And Hove Albion vs Everton
Sunday 27 October, 1:00am, Amex Stadium
Was a win at West Ham what Everton needed to get back on track?
Maybe in a few weeks we might be able to say that was some sort of turning point but it would be foolish to be completely back on board the Toffees bandwagon just yet.
Last season’s trip to the Amex Stadium was a rough one with the Seagulls winning 1-0 just after Christmas.
In a tipping competition you would probably shade Everton but the markets for this one look just about right and it might be a good opportunity to stay away and look for better value elsewhere.
Watford vs Bournemouth
Sunday 27 October, 1:00am, Vicarage Road
Watford 0 – Bournemouth 0
That first win is coming for Watford, it’s right around the corner, could it be this week against Bournemouth?
After taking a point away from Spurs in London, that might just give them the boost they need to get past a side like Bournemouth.
The Cherries are winless in three but have been able to pick up draws from West Ham and Norwich.
Watford are looking better but until they actually find a way to win a match, it’s too risky to back them for anything more than a draw.
Back the Draw @ $3.50
West Ham vs Sheffield United
Sunday 27 October, 1:00am, London Stadium
West Ham 1 – Sheffield United 1
Maybe it’s my fault for having faith in West Ham last week but they looked horrendously average at best taking on Everton.
Sheffield on the other hand looked like a scrappy promoted team desperate to secure a second season of Premier League football beating Arsenal which… ok not as big of an achievement as it was 10 years ago, but still.
With seven points from their last four matches, Sheffield at least looks like it might have found a way to play in the Premier League and generate results.

Burnley vs Chelsea
Sunday 27 October, 3:30am, Turf Moor
Maybe it’s time to re-evaluate Chelsea, with three straight wins and four from their last five, the Blues might just be buying into Frank Lampard the manager.
Even though they have won on their last two trips to Turf Moor and hold a record of four wins and a draw at the venue in the Premier League, Burnley has been a tough opponent for them.
In the last five meetings, Burnley has taken points in the three matches at Stamford Bridge with two draws and a win in that time although it’s too much to try and talk myself into backing anything other than a Chelsea win.
One factor that has to be considered though is the fact Chelsea is going to be on very short rest after a Champions League tie in Amsterdam.
That might have them working with a slightly limited squad but it should still be enough to handle Burnley.

Newcastle vs Wolverhampton
Monday 28 October, 1:00am, St James’ Park
It’s a bit of a risk to back Wolves to win, especially post Europa League but this Newcastle side isn’t scaring… anyone really.
You can automatically cross off a Newcastle victory here, for some reason they only seem to be able to defeat members of the big six, beating Tottenham and Manchester United in their two wins this season.
Against the rest of the Premier League, they’ve compiled a measly two points from six matches.
More than anything else this is a bet against Newcastle than it is in support of Wolves.

Arsenal vs Crystal Palace
Monday 28 October, 3:30am, Emirates Stadium
Arsenal 2 – Crystal Palace 2
The more things change, the more things stay the same, every season it seems like the Gunners are good for one of those hilarious (if you didn’t back them) losses to a team they should swat away like a fly.
Which then begs the question, do you feel like this side is capable of a response this weekend against Palace?
Last season they picked up a grand total of one point from Palace including an embarrassing 3-2 loss at the Emirates.
The midweek Europa League match against Vitoria shouldn’t require too much of the first team squad to get all three points so expect Unai Emery to deploy his big guns here.
In the familiar confines of their home ground, Arsenal should be able to overcome the sometimes confusing team selections, especially in the midfield and come away with a win as Aubameyang leads from the front.

Liverpool vs Tottenham
Monday 28 October, 3:30am, Anfield
Liverpool 2 – Tottenham 1
If this fixture can’t get a response out of Spurs then perhaps nothing will.
Sure they looked good getting a 5-0 win over Crvena Zvezda in the Champions League during the week and will have an extra day of rest over Liverpool but this side has some major question marks over it.
Not to mention the lingering memory of their relative no-show in the Champions League Final back in June when they couldn’t break down the Liverpool defence, going down 2-0 in Madrid.
Liverpool dropped its first points of the campaign against Manchester United last weekend and Jurgen Klopp will be looking to at the very least keep the six point buffer they went into the weekend with intact.
While Spurs will hopefully find a way to be more competitive this time around, Liverpool should have the quality to get over the line and keep a clean sheet as well.

Norwich vs Manchester United
Monday 28 October, 3:30am, Carrow Road
Norwich 1 – Manchester United 3
United might have gone four matches without a win but being the first side to take points off Liverpool might have felt like a victory.
That didn’t really help their position on the table though as they are still stuck in the bottom half and continuing to provide plenty of fodder for writers and comics alike.
Goals have been at a premium in their recent matches with their last nine in all competitions having two or fewer goals (at the time of writing before their Europa League tie with Partizan).
Norwich is one of the few teams with a worse recent run and sits five places below United on the table so while it might be a bit of a risk, you have to expect United to find a way to win here, even if it’s not pretty.
SGM: Manchester United to Win & Under 3.5 Goals @ $2.75
The biggest game of Week 10 in the Premier League is saved until last with Tottenham hosting Manchester City.
With both sides being given maximum rest after their Champions League exertions, both sides will be eager to push for a win here.
Compared to last weekend the Saturday night slate of games is relatively light with no early game and only six in the late or very late window.
That’s not to say there will be a lack of quality with Leicester and West Ham a match that could be worth staying up for (or at least watching on demand).
Read on for our previews, predictions and same game multis for all ten fixtures coming up.
Brighton And Hove Albion vs Wolverhampton
Sunday 28 October, 1:00am, Amex Stadium
Wolves impressive run came to an end against Watford but they take on Brighton as slight favourites to come away with all three points.
Neither side have been in particularly high scoring matches this season, in fact outside of the first game of the season, every other Wolves match has had two or fewer goals.
Five of Brighton’s matches have gone under the 2.5 line as well this season so it is unlikely this will feature a whole lot of clear cut chances.
Brighton have at least scored in five of their past six outings but Wolves should be able to keep them at bay here.

Sunday 28 October, 1:00am, Craven Cottage
Fulham will want to forget the last time they played Bournemouth, getting thumped 5-1 at home in the Championship in 2015.
While meetings between these clubs are few and far between, you still have to go back to January 1994 to find the last time Fulham actually beat Bournemouth.
The Cherries form makes their odds here very appealing as they sit in sixth place having taken at least a point from seven of their nine games.
Fulham have the Premier League’s worst defensive record this season and while Bournemouth might not go wild here, a comfortable victory is certainly on the cards.

As a reward for picking up their first win of the season and doubling their season goal tally in the process, Cardiff get a trip to Anfield.
The bad news is they have to play Liverpool who have let in just three goals all season and are working on a title challenge.
This has the makings of Liverpool blistering the Blue Birds similar to the 2013/2014 season when they scored nine goals in two games against Cardiff.
To answer the jokes last season, Liverpool’s defence is the real deal and should be able to keep Cardiff out while the forwards do their thing.

Sunday 28 October, 1:00am, St Mary’s Stadium
Southampton 0 – Newcastle 0
If it’s feeling a little hot on Tyneside that probably is due to Rafael Benitez’s seat currently warm enough to power three regional counties.
The Champions League winning boss is yet to register a win in charge this season and a club such as Newcastle will expect a much better return than two points from nine games.
A match against a Southampton side only just ahead of them on the Premier League table certainly has the potential to bring them joy for the first time this season, until you consider their history at St Mary’s
Their last win at the venue came in September 2004 and since Southampton aren’t doing a whole lot better this season a draw is the play here.

Sunday 28 October, 1:00am, Vicarage Road
Watford 3 – Huddersfield 0
Things are much more pleasant around Watford this weekend after their first win in over a month and they will feel confident about making it two in a row against Huddersfield.
Last season they dropped all six points against the Terriers but with the visitors winless, there is no better time than this weekend to pick up another win here.
The return to scoring form for Roberto Pereyra coincided with Watford’s return to winning form and as he goes, they go.
With Huddersfield desperate to turn around their poor form the question remains when a change comes however desperation is a powerful motivator and if they can take an early lead it might be key to an upset win.

Back to back losses for both Leicester and West Ham mean they come into this contest glad that run of results will end for at least one team.
Last season West Ham took four points from these matches including a big away win late in the season.
Both sides will have this game circled as a slump buster and while Leicester have the goalscoring potential in their side, West Ham have the organisation to prevent things from getting out of hand.
Leicester are yet to record a draw this season but this looks like the game that run will end as the Foxes and Hammers fail to break each other down.

Burnley will always have memories of their opening day win at Stamford Bridge last season however their 2-1 defeat at Turf Moor looks like it will be slightly more reflective of the outcome here.
Chelsea have experienced some trouble in this fixture in the past, dropping points in three of the last five games.
What has worked out well for them this season is backing up after a “big” league game, winning the next match after they played another member of the Premier League’s big six.
Even with the turnaround after the Europa League midweek, Chelsea should be able to come away with a high scoring win.

After years of being a punchline with Arsene Wenger on the touchline, it looks like the fun has come back at Arsenal.
Their third goal against Leicester was a testament to what this side is capable of, however their early concession is a reminder that the bubble is capable of bursting anytime soon.
Each of their last three meetings with Crystal Palace has featured three or more goals and with the way their forward line is gelling right now, they should be able to score as many goals as needed to stay ahead of a stuttering Palace attack.

I repeat, Everton are ahead of United on the Premier League table.
It’s only by one point but if they want to keep it that way, Everton will need to avoid defeat when they travel to Old Trafford.
United did win both meetings last season by a 6-0 aggregate score, but if Everton are held scoreless here, questions must be asked.
United have conceded 3, 2 and 2 goals in the last three matches so the value play here is in fact the both teams to score market.

The match of the round concludes the weekend’s action here as Tottenham and Manchester City meet for a blockbuster at Wembley.
Tottenham have won four in a row and with a rough Champions League campaign to this point, will likely want to turn their attention to their domestic fortunes.
City need all three points in what looks it will be a a very tightly run title race already this season.
With the Sky Blues having won both meetings last season Tottenham will want to keep their four match winning run going but these sides seem too hard to split.

We are ready for EPL Round 10 to kick off or as it is otherwise known, one of the more frustrating weekends for fans watching at home.
With the UK moving off daylight savings time, Saturday night has games at their familiar spot but Sunday sees every game moving back an hour.
Before that though we have a massive clash between Manchester United and Tottenham at Old Trafford while at the other end of the table the battle of the clubs who have sacked their managers takes place Sunday evening between Everton and Leicester.
Manchester United vs Tottenham Hotspur
Saturday 28 October, 10:30pm, Old Trafford
With both sides eying off a potential title tilt, they will be very eager to get one up in this clash.
Tottenham are in the middle of a great run, breaking their Wembley duck in the league as a part of four straight wins.
United played for a draw against Liverpool before a massive upset by Huddersfield.
Traditionally this is the sort of game where Jose Mourinho will slow the game down and try to grind out a low scoring result so with that in mind, take the under here.

Watford vs Stoke City
Sunday 29 October, 1:00am, Vicarage Road
Watford’s defeat at Chelsea last will have done nothing to dent their confidence as they were able to push the Blues for large parts of the game.
They are still yet to lose against sides outside of the big six this season and are resilient when at home. Stoke have not travelled well at all this year picking up just one point all the way back in August.
With just one win and four losses from their last five starts, it’s hard to see them changing that form here.
I like Watford to continue their excellent start to the season in this game and get by with a comfortable win.

Arsenal vs Swansea City
Sunday 29 October, 1:00am, Emirates Stadium
For all the turmoil surrounding Arsenal, they managed to respond last week with an excellent second half to run out comfortable 5-2 victors over Everton.
Swansea on the other hand are sitting at the bottom end of the table, thanks in part to the fact they have been somewhat sound defensively even in defeat.
With their major stars not taking part in the midweek Carabao Cup fixture expect Arsenal to get by here and with Alexandre Lacazette scoring freely at the Emirates Stadium, he should get on the scoresheet here.

If there is going to be a side to hand City their first loss of the season, it is highly unlikely it will be West Brom, who are currently sitting on 10 points and are without a win since their second match of the year.
City as we all know are flying high on top of the table with eight wins and a draw.
They also tend to like playing West Brom having won 13 of the last fourteen meetings, including 11 straight.
Add in the fact that they are likely smarting after being taken to penalties by Championship side Wolves in the Carabao Cup and this just screams City winning by a lot.

Liverpool vs Huddersfield Town
Sunday 29 October, 1:00am, Anfield
Last weekend consisted of dreams and nightmares for these two sides, Huddersfield got their first win over Manchester United since 1952.
Liverpool are desperate for a bounce back after being ripped apart by Tottenham and with just one win since the start of September, they are desperate for a reversal in form.
Both sides have shown a vulnerability at the back and while Liverpool are far & away the better side on paper, I can’t say to back them in good conscience right now.
Crystal Palace vs West Ham United
Sunday 29 October, 1:00am, Selhurst Park
Palace came back down to earth in the last few days after their first win of the season with defeats at Newcastle in the league before a confidence denting thrashing at the hands of Bristol City in the Carabao Cup.
West Ham will be coming off a derby cup tie against Tottenham however with several first team players not expected to feature they will still be somewhat fresh heading into this game.
Last year West Ham won both games but this season’s product is not quite at that level and this has the makings of a scrappy draw.
Back the Draw @ $3.20
Bournemouth vs Chelsea
Sunday 29 October, 3:30am, Vitality Stadium
Something is not right with Chelsea at the moment, winning just two of their last five game however their ability to finish strong against Watford might give them the platform to go forward from here and build on it.
They face a Bournemouth side that has failed to inspire at all this year and will be overmatched by Chelsea’s pace and power.
There is a bit of value in Chelsea straight up but the better play here is to take Chelsea to score in both halves.

Both sides have been relatively productive since returning from the October international window with a win and a draw in their two matches.
Southampton are playing just their fourth league game away from home with a win, draw and loss so far. Brighton have been a tough host at Amex Stadium, not dropping a point there since opening day against Manchester City.
With a big win over West Ham last week they might have a tougher test against Southampton as both sides pick up a point each.

Leicester City vs Everton
Monday 30 October, 3:00am, King Power Stadium
Plenty of drama in the blue half of Merseyside as they prepare for their first game without Ronald Koeman in charge.
After a rough start to the season they will face Leicester in a battle of the replacement managers.
Despite their mediocre overall record, most of their dropped points have come against sides in contention for the Champions League, winning two, drawing one and losing one outside the traditional Big Six.
Even then, the advantage of playing at home in front of the maniacal fans at the King Power should be enough to get Leicester over the line here.

Burnley vs Newcastle United
Tuesday 31 October, 7:00am, Turf Moor
The final match of the Premier League round and it screams two sides that will cancel each other out.
Burnley have a league high four draws this year with three coming in their last five outings while Newcastle have drawn two in their last three.
Newcastle’s form is very encouraging losing just once in September and they are showing an ability and belief under Rafael Benitez to get the necessary results to be in the mix this year.
Burnley have shown a similar resiliency and I think neither side will let themselves lose here.
Back the Draw @ $3.10
We are now over a quarter of the way through the English Premier League season the table is now starting to take shape.
Tottenham and Leicester City were involved in the race for the championship at the end of last season – with Leicester City easily accounting for their rivals – and they will face off at White Hart Lane this weekend.
Add in interesting contests between Crystal Palace and Liverpool, Southampton and Chelsea and West Bromwich Albion and Manchester City and it is another huge weekend of English Premier League action.
Sunderland vs Arsenal
Sunday 30 October, 10:30pm, Stadium Of Light
Sunderland suffered yet another loss at the hands of West Ham last weekend and it is no surprise that they will go into this clash as heavy underdogs.
Sunderland are still chasing their first victory of the season and they face a difficult assignment against Arsenal, but they have won three of their past 11 games for a very narrow profit.
Arsenal let slip a golden opportunity to go to the top of the English Premier League ladder when they drew with Middlesbrough last weekend and they can’t afford to drop more points against Sunderland.
The Gunners have won just seven of their past 15 games as away favourites for a loss, while they have not lost in their past 12 games against Sunderland.
There is no doubt that Arsenal are deserving favourites, but it is tough to get them as short as their current quote and I am happy to stay out of this clash from a betting perspective.
Manchester United vs Burnley
Sunday 30 October, 1:00am, Old Trafford
Manchester United 0 - Burnley 0
Jose Mourinho is already under plenty of pressure at Manchester United and a defeat at the hands of Burnley would lead to absolute carnage.
Manchester United were nothing short of disgraceful against Chelsea and they have not won a game in the English Premier League since they beat Leicester City over a month ago.
It is no surprise that they will go into this clash as dominant favourites, but they have not been a profitable side as home favourites over the past 12 months.
Burnley returned to winning form with a tough performance against Everton and they will take plenty of confidence from that performance.
The problem for Burnley so far this season is that they have struggled away from home and they have lost all three games as away underdogs.
This is another game where there is very little betting value and I am more than happy to stay out of the action.
Middlesbrough vs Bournemouth
Sunday 30 October, 1:00am, Riverside Stadium
Middlesbrough 2 - Bournemouth 0
Middlesbrough produced one of their best performances of the season to date to take a point from Arsenal this weekend and they will go into this clash as clear favourites.
Middlesbrough are yet to fire as the punter’s elect this season and their record at Riverside Stadium has been particularly poor.
Bournemouth have not lost a game since they went down to Manchester City over a month ago and they showed plenty of heart to take a point from their meeting with Tottenham.
Bournemouth have taken at least a point from eight of their past 15 games as away underdogs for a profit and they are more than capable of coming away from this clash with the three points.

Watford vs Hull City
Sunday 30 October, 1:00am, Vicarage Road
Watford took a point from their clash with Swansea City last weekend and are dominant favourites to return to winning form against Hull City.
Watford made a slow start to the season, but they have lost just one of their past six matches and have really cemented themselves as consistent English Premier League performers.
They have lost just one of their past eight games as home favourites and they very rarely lose when they are expected to get the job done.
The wheels have fallen off Hull City in a big way and Stoke City resigned them to their fifth loss on the trot last weekend.
Hull City face a tougher challenge against Watford this weekend and it is extremely difficult to see them returning to winning form.
There is a genuine edge at the current price of Watford and they are one of the safest bets in the English Premier League this weekend.

Manchester City produced their third disappointing performance on the trot against Southampton and they are dominant favourites to return to winning form this weekend.
Manchester City looked as though they were going to cruise to the English Premier League title at the start of October, but they are sure to have received a much-needed wake-up call in recent weeks.
Their record as away favourites in the past 12 months is extremely poor – they have won just five of their past 14 games in this scenario.
West Bromwich Albion have won only two games this season, but they have played well in recent weeks and they were far from disgraced against Liverpool.
The Baggies have won five of their past 11 games as home underdogs for a massive profit and they have lost just four of their games in this scenario.
There is no doubt that Manchester City deserve to be favourites, but they are way too short at their current price and the West Bromwich Albion and draw Double Chance is worth a gamble.

This is one of the most interesting games of the weekend.
Leicester City upstaged Tottenham to win the English Premier League last season, but it is Tottenham that will go into this clash as clear favourites.
Tottenham were unable to get the job done against Bournemouth last weekend, but they are still yet to lose a game this season and their record at home in excellent.
They have now won ten of their past 17 games as home favourites, but this has actually not been a profitable betting play for punters.
Leicester City returned to winning form with a fighting victory over Crystal Palace and they will take plenty of confidence from the fact that they beat Tottenham at White Hart Lane last season.
The Foxes have won four of their past 11 games as away underdogs for a clear profit and there is definite value at their current price of $5.50.

Sunday 30 October, 3:30am, Selhurst Park
Crystal Palace 2 - Liverpool 4
Liverpool are arguably the form team in the English Premier League and they recorded their fifth win from their past six games when they beat West Bromwich Albion last weekend.
The style of football that Liverpool has played this season is nothing short of outstanding and they will start this game as clear favourites.
Winning as home favourites has been easier said than done for Liverpool and they have won just six of their past 13 games as away favourites for a loss.
Crystal Palace suffered their second straight loss on the trot against Leicester City and they face another tough assignment this weekend.
They have lost four of their past five games as underdogs for a clear loss, but their recent record against Liverpool is excellent and they have won three of the past six games played between the two sides.
The market looks to have got this game just about right and this is another contest that I am happy to stay out of from a betting perspective.
Everton vs West Ham United
Monday 31 October, 12:30pm, Goodison Park
Everton have regressed significantly since their positive start to the season and they desperately need to return to winning form against West Ham on Monday morning.
Everton produced their worst performance of the season to lose to Burnley, but they will still go into this clash as clear favourites.
Home favourtism has not been a particularly strong position for Everton and they have won just seven of their past 15 games in this scenario for a loss.
West Ham have rebounded impressively in the past two weeks to beat Crystal Palace and Sunderland and their season is now somewhat back on track.
The Hammers have won only three of their past 15 games as away underdogs, but they have drawn six of these contests and backing the London-based side to draw has been a profitbale play over the past 12 months.
The $3.80 currently on offer for the draw can’t be ignored and it is one of the best value betting plays of the week.

Monday 31 October, 3:00am, St Mary's Stadium
Southampton 0 - Chelsea 2
Both these teams bring strong form into what should be an exciting clash.
Chelsea produced their best performance of the season to completely steamroll Manchester United last weekend and they have now recorded three impressive victories on the trot.
They will go into this clash as clear favourites and they have proven to be a narrow winning proposition as home favourites in the past 12 months having won seven of their past 13 games in this scenario.
Southampton have not lost a game in well over a month and they played very well to take a point from their clash with Manchester City last weekend.
The Saints have an excellent record in front of their home fans and they have won two of their past three games as home underdogs for a clear profit.
I am still not completely sold on this Chelsea outfit and the $3.10 available for a Southampton victory is worth a bet.

Stoke City vs Swansea City
Tuesday 1 November, 7:00am, Britannia Stadium
Stoke City 3 - Swansea City 1
Stoke City have returned to their best form in recent weeks and they will go into this clash as clear favourites.
It is fair to say that Stoke did not beat much in the form of Sunderland and Hull City, but before that they were able to take a point from Manchester United and they haven’t lost for over a month.
Stoke City have won four of their past eight as home favourites for a narrow profit and it is fair to say that they are tough to beat at Britannia Stadium.
The change of manager has not really worked wonder for Swansea City, but they were at least able to end their losing streak with a draw against Watford last weekend.
Swansea City have won just three of their past 17 games as away underdogs and they are profitable in that scenario, but are very tough to rely on.
Neither team really stands out at their current price, but the Over in the Total Goals betting market does appeal.
