2021/2022 EPL Week 24 Preview


After an international break and an FA Cup weekend, the Premier League is finally back in action.

15 matchweeks remain, however all bar four clubs will have at least one catch up fixture to play in the coming weeks after the disrupted festive schedule.

We have 10 matches coming up starting with one of those catch ups as Burnley hosts Watford, while Chelsea and Brighton have the week off with the Blues in the Club World Cup.

Read on for our previews and best bets for every match here!

Brighton And Hove Albion Vs Chelsea

Wednesday 19 January, 7:00am, Amex Stadium


Burnley Vs Watford

Sunday 6 February, 3:00am, Turf Moor

Burnley 0 – Watford 0


The two bottom teams in the Premier League kick off the February fixtures and this match could have huge implications on the relegation battle in May.

Burnley might have lost Chris Wood in the January transfer window but signed what should be an upgrade in Wout Weghorst from Wolfsburg while Watford signed five players that they will hope can help them survive the drop.

It would be a huge risk to have any faith in either team to end a lengthy winless run against one another and it’s not a play I am keen to make.

Defensively, both sides are suspect and it is a big reason they are where they are on the Premier League table so I’ll back both sides to score for a slightly more safe play.

Back Both Teams to Score @ $1.83

Newcastle Vs Everton

Wednesday 9 February, 6:45am, St James’ Park

Newcastle 3 – Everton 1

The Frank Lampard era at Everton began with a 4-1 win in the FA Cup last weekend and now he will take charge of his first Premier League match since his dismissal from Chelsea.

With both sides very much in the relegation battle, getting all three points here is a must as they try and set themselves up to avoid the drop.

Newcastle has picked up five points from its last three matches thanks to a much improved backline that conceded just two goals in that span.

It looks like this is heading towards a low scoring battle and that’s the play here.

Back Under 2.5 Goals @ $1.88

West Ham Vs Watford

Wednesday 9 February, 6:45am, London Stadium

West Ham 1 – Watford 0

The warning signs of a West Ham slump are there for all to see, back to back defeats to Leeds and Manchester United before the international break and then needing extra time to see off sixth tier Kidderminster in the FA Cup on the weekend.

Perhaps they were guilty of taking an opponent far too lightly on the weekend and that is realistically the only way Watford will have a chance here.

I’m not ready to abandon West Ham just yet, in fact this could very easily be a bounce back game as they are much better than Watford.

Back West Ham to Win -1 Goal @ $2.20

Burnley Vs Manchester United

Wednesday 9 February, 7:00am, Turf Moor

Burnley 1 – Manchester United 1

The good news for Burnley is they have kept back to back clean sheets in their last two outings.

However the bad news is that they have also failed to score in their last two outings and are about to take on a Manchester United team they have lost their last five home games against, all to nil.

There might be some concerns over United’s loss in the FA Cup however they should still be able to see off a struggling Burnley team.

Back Manchester United to Win to Nil @ $2.65

Manchester City Vs Brentford

Thursday 10 February, 6:45am, Etihad Stadium

Manchester City 2 – Brentford 0

It’s hard to see Brentford finding a way to stay competitive in this fixture, they have lost eight of their last ten matches, and one of those wins came against lower league side Port Vale in the FA Cup.

As it stands their current streak is at five and all of those matches have seen at least three goals scored, not an ideal scenario when you have the second best attack in the competition up next.

It’s going to come down to how sharp City are in front of goal and I’ll back Pep to have his side fired up to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table.

Back Manchester City to Win and Over 3.5 Goals @ $2.00

Norwich Vs Crystal Palace

Thursday 10 February, 6:45am, Carrow Road

Norwich 1 – Crystal Palace 1

Norwich is suddenly one of the more in form teams in England, winning four of their last five matches to help vault them out of the relegation zone.

Palace has been struggling as well with just one win from its last five and for that reason, it’s tough to see why they are favourites away from home.

Overall this season, they have taken just seven points away from Selhurst Park, and it might be the only time this comes up, but Norwich at their current price looks like the value play.

Back Norwich to Win @ $3.50

Tottenham Vs Southampton

Thursday 10 February, 6:45am, Tottenham Stadium

Tottenham 2 – Southampton 3

In their last Premier League outing, the Saints managed to take a point off Manchester City, so surely Spurs will be no trouble, right?

Perhaps that might be asking a bit much, however one play has been very profitable in Southampton’s recent outings, and that is taking both teams to score.

Historically, that has also been a solid play in this fixture that has hit in nine of the last ten meetings.

I’ll combine that with taking the Conte revolution to pick up another three points.

SGM: Tottenham to Win & Both Teams to Score @ $3.31

Aston Villa Vs Leeds

Thursday 10 February, 7:00am, Villa Park

Aston Villa 3 – Leeds 3

Both of these clubs are back in action for the first time since before the international break as both will look to begin a second half run towards a European place.

While both teams saw their last outing finish with a 1-0 scoreline, this has the setup of a game with plenty of scoring chances.

Leeds are conceding at a rate of almost two goals per game and Villa has the attack to really get after them.

However Villa’s defence is not exactly water tight so Leeds should get at least one goal as well.

Back Both Teams to Score and Over 2.5 Goals @ $1.95

Liverpool Vs Leicester

Friday 11 February, 6:45am, Anfield

Liverpool 2 – Leicester 0

Liverpool should win this game, they are the better side on paper and in much better form than a struggling Leicester team.

But there is no reason to have them as such heavy favourites, especially with Mane and Salah both likely to miss the match due to the African Cup of Nations.

I’ll take a shot on Leicester getting something because that price seems way too high.

Back Leicester/Draw Double Chance @ $3.90

Wolves Vs Arsenal

Friday 11 February, 6:45am, Molineux Stadium

Wolves 0 – Arsenal 1

Wolves might have fallen in the FA Cup against Norwich, but they will be very confident in their ability to take something off Arsenal in this match.

In the last five head to head meetings they have won three times including twice at Molineux and drawn once.

The Gunners went winless in all five of their matches in January and after the squad weakened during the transfer window, they will face an uphill battle.

The home side looks way over the odds.

Back Wolves to Win @ $3.50


We have a huge 12 matches coming up in Week 24 of the Premier League with a handful of blockbusters headlining the card.

It’s a double test for Premier League leaders Manchester City as they take on Tottenham before having a catch up fixture against Everton on Thursday morning (AEDT).

Meanwhile Liverpool kicks off the weekend’s action with a trip to Leicester as both sides are trying to keep in touch with the pace setters.

Read on for our previews and best bets for every Premier League match this weekend below.

Leicester Vs Liverpool

Saturday 13 February, 11:30pm, King Power Stadium

Leicester 3 – Liverpool 1

After a brief respite, Liverpool’s form slump has resumed with a pair of defeats to Brighton and Manchester City.

Perhaps a week of soul searching after their humiliation at home will be just what they need to get their season back on track.

Leicester’s league form only wavered slightly with Jamie Vardy out injured and they appear to be over the odds here against a team that seems to be getting some credit on reputation more than results.

It has been almost four years since the Foxes last won a Premier League match against Liverpool however they are phenomenal value at their current odds.

Back Leicester to Win @ $3.40

Crystal Palace Vs Burnley

Sunday 14 February, 2:00am, Selhurst Park

Crystal Palace 0 – Burnley 3

Burnley’s FA Cup run came to an end during the week with a 2-0 loss at home to Bournemouth while Palace’s last fixture saw them go down to Leeds.

There’s not a lot to like about this match overall from a match result betting perspective.

On the plus side if there is one thing we can count on, it’s both of these sides having major scoring woes.

Both Teams to Score has failed to hit in 16 of Burnley’s 22 matches and they have a league low 14 goals scored this season.

Back Both Teams to Score (No) @ $1.80

Manchester City Vs Tottenham

Sunday 14 February, 4:30am, Etihad Stadium

Manchester City 3 – Tottenham 0

While the Premier League’s schedule makers could never have foreseen Tottenham’s struggles, they had to have had some sense of humour to have City up next on their fixture list.

In spite of City’s Premier League clean sheet streak coming to an end at Anfield last week, they still ran out comfortable 4-1 winners as they look to inch closer to another Premier League title.

There is no reason to abandon what has been a largely successful strategy taking City to win and keep a clean sheet so I’ll stick with it for the time being.

Back Manchester City to Win to Nil @ $2.25

Brighton And Hove Albion Vs Aston Villa

Sunday 14 February, 7:00am, Amex Stadium

Brighton 0 – Aston Villa 0

Brighton are well and truly in survival mode, opting to close up ranks and try to grind their way into another season in the Premier League.

It has been a winning formula so far with three wins and two draws from their last five Premier League matches.

The market appears to be favouring a high scoring contest but Brighton is doing an excellent job playing matches on their terms and expecting a low scoring match is the value play here.

Back Under 2.5 Goals @ $2.00

Southampton Vs Wolves

Sunday 14 February, 11:00am, St Mary’s Stadium

Southampton 1 – Wolves 2

Once top of the Premier League, the Saints are in a major freefall.

Five consecutive defeats in this competition have seen them drop down to 12th and could fall below their opponents this weekend Wolves with defeat here.

Wolves have battled and scrapped to five points from their last four matches including draws over Chelsea and Leicester, plus a win over Arsenal.

While the Saints seem destined for a rebound at some point, it’s worth backing against them until they show they are able to turn their form around.

Back Wolves to Win @ $2.95

West Bromwich Albion Vs Manchester United

Monday 15 February, 1:00am, The Hawthorns

West Brom 1 – Manchester United 1

It’s a simple thought process in West Brom’s matches right now, they are going to be relegated so back against them week in, week out.

United might be a bit flat here after a midweek FA Cup tie with West Ham that went to 120 minutes but they should still be able to take care of business.

Considering West Brom have scored just three goals at home since the start of December, I like the chances of United keeping a clean sheet as well.

Back Manchester United to Win to Nil @ $2.25

Arsenal Vs Leeds

Monday 15 February, 3:30am, Emirates Stadium

Arsenal 4 – Leeds 2

Considering the long standing reputations of both sides, it’s a bit surprising to expect a low scoring, arm wrestle at the Emirates this weekend.

For so long Arsenal were known for playing beautiful football with an attacking vigour opponents failed to match, while Leeds just go for broke under the mad scientist Marcelo Bielsa.

Across an FA Cup tie last season and the first meeting in the current Premier League campaign, we have seen just one goal scored in 180 minutes of football.

The Gunners desperately need to get their confidence back on track after a pair of defeats to Wolves and Aston Villa but things just are not clicking for them as the fixture list appears to have caught up with Mikel Arteta and his men.

Leeds is in excellent form with three wins from their last four outings and are worth strong consideration at their head to head price, but I’ll back the recent history between these teams to hold true.

Back Under 2.5 Goals @ $2.20

Everton Vs Fulham

Monday 15 February, 6:00am, Goodison Park

Everton 0 – Fulham 2

There are only so many ways to point out that Fulham have not won a Premier League match since December 1.

Since their elimination from the FA Cup, they have drawn three matches and lost once, having scored in just one of those four contests.

The only way Everton does not come away with maximum points here is if they are somewhat lacklustre after a wild midweek FA Cup tie while Fulham have had a full week of preparation.

At this price though I’m willing to back against Fulham again here.

Back Everton to Win @ $1.82

West Ham Vs Sheffield United

Tuesday 16 February, 5:00am, London Stadium

West Ham 3 – Sheffield 0

West Ham’s last seven days have not gone to plan with the club failing to score a goal in 210 minutes as they drew with Fulham and lost to Manchester United in extra time of their FA Cup tie.

Sheffield is starting to battle and has taken six points from its last four in the Premier League, but still find themselves anchored to the foot of the table.

I like the price on West Ham to win however the scoring woes they are experiencing have me chasing value in a different market.

Back Under 2.5 Goals @ $1.80

Chelsea Vs Newcastle

Tuesday 16 February, 7:00am, Stamford Bridge

Chelsea 2 – Newcastle 0

In spite of conceding the first goal of the Thomas Tuchel era, Chelsea won their third straight Premier League fixture on the weekend and will try to extend that run to four here.

Under Frank Lampard, the Blues cruised to a 2-0 win in November and you have to like their chances of coming away with another result here.

Newcastle might have come away with a 3-2 win over a flailing Southampton side but they are still so inconsistent you can’t back them to perform with any confidence.

Back Chelsea to Win to Nil @ $1.91

Burnley Vs Fulham

Thursday 18 February, 5:00am, Turf Moor

Burnley 1 – Fulham 1

Originally set for Matchweek 17, Burnley and Fulham will take part in another midweek fixture.

It will be the second time these sides have met in the space of three weeks with Burnley coming away with a 3-0 win in an FA Cup tie.

Goals will likely be at a premium in this match with the Cottagers struggling for points, it would not be a surprise to see this decided by a solitary goal, if there is one scored at all.

Back Under 1.5 Goals @ $2.60

Everton Vs Manchester City

Thursday 18 February, 7:00am, Goodison Park

Everton 1 – Manchester City 3

Train, play, win, clean sheet, rinse & repeat.

It’s a pretty solid formula for City at the moment and I’ll continue to back that trend to continue.

Don’t overcomplicate this.

Back Manchester City to Win to Nil @ $2.65


There’s another round of midweek Premier League football on the cards ahead of the FA Cup Fourth Round this weekend.

Arsenal and Chelsea face off at Stamford Bridge with the home side looking to maintain its position in the top four.

Elsewhere Manchester Untied has to back up from a draining loss at Liverpool and at the time of writing, the reported signing of Bruno Fernandes is still in the works so we reinforcements won’t be there when they host Burnley at Old Trafford.

There’s not a lot of time to overreact to the results from the weekend so let’s get right into the previews and predictions for all ten matches here.

Bournemouth Vs Brighton And Hove Albion

Wednesday 22 January, 6:30am, Vitality Stadium

Bournemouth 3 – Brighton 1

25 days after facing off at the Amex Stadium in Brighton, we get the rematch between these sides.

Brighton came away with a 2-0 win, getting a modicum of revenge for a 5-0 thrashing last April.

Head to head I do give a slight edge to Brighton, solely because they will have a week and a half between matches, while Bournemouth will be preparing for an FA Cup clash with Arsenal after this one.

It’s not a big enough edge to take them in the head to head match though, there’s value to be had elsewhere in the market.

Three of the last four meetings between these sides have featured a team keeping a clean sheet so I’ll back that form to continue.

Back Both Teams Not to Score  @ $2.15

Aston Villa Vs Watford

Wednesday 22 January, 6:30am, Villa Park

Aston Villa 2 – Watford 1

Villa’s five game loss-win alternating run came to an end with a draw against Brighton on the weekend and up next is a Watford side coming off a 0-0 draw against Spurs.

That pressed pause on Watford’s rise up the table and saw them stay just above the relegation zone.

In that run we saw Watford become much more ruthless in front of goal, which bodes well for their chances against a leaky Villa backline that has conceded 20 goals in 11 home matches to this point.

I’ll back the Hornets to take advantage of their opportunities unlike against Spurs and come away with all three points.

Back Watford to Win @ $2.40

Crystal Palace Vs Southampton

Wednesday 22 January, 6:30am, Selhurst Park

Crystal Palace 0 – Southampton 2

Remarkably, Southampton has one of the best away records in the entire Premier League with 17 points picked up on their travels already, including from their visits to Chelsea and Leicester.

Selhurst Park is a tough place for plenty of visiting teams though with Palace taking eight of a possible 12 points at home since losing to Liverpool.

The last two fixtures between these sides have finished as 1-1 draws and while a correct score bet at $5.80 does have some appeal, a straight up draw has plenty of value in it too.

Back the Draw @ $3.10

Everton Vs Newcastle

Wednesday 22 January, 6:30am, Goodison Park

Everton 2 – Newcastle 2

Two sides that are headed in opposite directions on the Premier League table, but both have ambitions of a top 10 finish.

Newcastle’s winless run ended with a last gasp win against Chelsea on the weekend and now they have a chance to get back onto a winning streak here.

I’m not sold on their ability to back up on such short rest after a game that took a lot out of them, so I’ll back Everton to win but with both teams to score.

SGM: Everton to Win and Both Teams to Score @ $3.37

Sheffield United Vs Manchester City

Wednesday 22 January, 6:30am, Stadium

Sheffield United 0 – Manchester City 1

Not to overreact to the weekend’s results but it sure looks like this City side is a step below where it should be and quite vulnerable.

Compare that to the overachieving Sheffield side who just seems to be able to get something out of just about every game, and avoid being on the wrong end of a massive blowout.

When these sides met earlier on this season it was City grinding out a 2-0 win and as tempting as it is to back the fairytale, taking the better side here is really the only play to make.

If Sheffield goes down early, they won’t have the firepower to get back into it.

Back City Halftime/Fulltime @ $2.05

Chelsea Vs Arsenal

Wednesday 22 January, 7:15am, Stamford Bridge

Chelsea 2 – Arsenal 2

Chelsea took all three points from the Emirates a month ago and will look to complete their first Premier League double over the Gunners since the 2015/2016 campaign.

Despite winning just two away games to this point, Arsenal’s away form is actually an improvement on previous years.

They have taken points in eight of 11 away games in the Premier League, but have scored just 12 goals in that time as well.

Much like Sheffield United in the previous game, it’s hard to see Arsenal having the ability to come from behind and get anything from this game.

It’s a decent price for Chelsea in a match such as this one and it’s enough to get me on board with backing them here.

Back Chelsea to Win @ $1.73

Leicester Vs West Ham

Thursday 23 January, 6:30am, King Power Stadium

Leicester 4 – West Ham 1

A busy fixture list is the worst case scenario for a side like Leicester, while they were flying in the lead up to Christmas, the fatigue has taken a toll on their results.

They should still be able to outclass West Ham here, especially with a lighter FA Cup tie against Brentford on the weekend.

I’ll back them to win but it might be a bit of a grind as the focus is on just winning instead of picking up style points.

SGM: Leicester to Win and Under 3.5 Goals @ $2.51

Tottenham Vs Norwich

Thursday 23 January, 6:30am, Tottenham Stadium

Tottenham 2 – Norwich 1

It’s fair to say that Spurs have not had the best start to 2020, winless in the Premier League and needing a replay against Middlesbrough in the FA Cup.

If that wasn’t enough, they have lost Harry Kane for the foreseeable future to a hamstring injury that could rule him out for the rest of the season.

In spite of all of that, this is Norwich and in spite of the 2-2 draw at Carrow Road in the first meeting this season, Spurs should make them look silly here or risk looking that way themselves.

Back Tottenham -1 Goal @ $1.95

Manchester United Vs Burnley

Thursday 23 January, 7:15am, Old Trafford

Manchester United 0 – Burnley 2

The good news for United is after their trip to Anfield, Burnley should be a much, much less intense game.

That does not mean they can let their guards down, but if they play to a reasonable standard they should have no trouble taking care of business.

Burnley is still a side that can’t score so look for something similar to United’s 2-0 win in the first meeting this season.

Back Manchester United to Win to Nil @ $2.20

Wolverhampton Vs Liverpool

Friday 24 January, 7:00am, Molineux Stadium

Wolves 1 – Liverpool 2

The unbeaten run continues, Liverpool’s main competition for the rest of the season will come from themselves and how many records they want to break.

One of the main reasons they have done so well is the fact they have kept so many clean sheets.

After their win against United, it is now seven Premier League matches (plus one in the FA Cup) since they conceded a goal in England.

If you don’t concede, you don’t lose and Liverpool should be able to put a couple of goals past a Wolves team that has fallen away in the last couple of weeks.

Back Liverpool to Win to Nil @ $2.55


It’s been a fair few days since Premier League action but most of these sides are backing up from FA Cup clashes over the weekend.

For some a cup tie is a chance to rotate some of the fringe players into the squad and give them some vital minutes in preparation for the run home.

Both Manchester sides are in remarkable form and will put long winning runs on the line when they take to the pitch in this midweek round.

Read on for our previews, predictions and same game multis for all ten English Premier League fixtures.

Arsenal Vs Cardiff

Wednesday 30 January, 6:45am, Emirates Stadium

Arsenal 2 – Cardiff 1

Much like last season, Arsenal’s spot on the table is down in large part to their home form.

29 points from 12 games and their only loss came in the opening game against Manchester City.

That total is good enough for the third best home record in the league and you should be able to back them to win this with plenty of confidence.

Fulham Vs Brighton And Hove Albion

Wednesday 30 January, 6:45am, Craven Cottage

Fulham 4 – Brighton 2

After the boost Claudio Ranieri’s arrival brought, Fulham are back to struggling, dropping their last three against Arsenal, Burnley and Tottenham.

While not exactly an easy stretch, this side’s minute margin for error is getting ever tighter and will see 13th placed Brighton as an opportunity for all three points.

Earlier this season these sides played out a 2-2 draw and the both teams to score market looks like a good play here.

That market has hit in four of Fulham’s last five and three of Brighton’s last five as well.

Back Both Teams to Score @ $1.95

SGM: Brighton to Win, Both Teams to Score, Over 3.5 Goals

Huddersfield Town Vs Everton

Wednesday 30 January, 6:45am, Emirates Stadium

Huddersfield 0 – Everton 1

Huddersfield’s new boss Jan Siewert has a chance to hit the ground running when his side hosts an Everton side that has lost three of its last four.

The Terriers are not exactly flying themselves however, currently dead last on the Premier League table and winless since last December.

This is the right sort of game for a club to have a new manager boost and it sets up well for Huddersfield at home.

Assuming they do get that boost, they are at good value for their first win since November 25.

Back Huddersfield to Win @ $4.25

SGM: Huddersfield to Win, Under 3.5 Goals

Wolverhampton Vs West Ham

Wednesday 30 January, 6:45am, Molineux Stadium

Wolverhampton 3 – West Ham 0

Neither side is really in sparkling form heading into this game, but Wolves did rediscover their goalscoring touch in a 4-3 classic over Leicester.

The Molineux has not been the fortress they would have hoped in their return to the top division, but they have won three of their last five matches there.

West Ham have dropped their last two away from home but have been able to stay competitive.

Don’t be at all surprised if this game turns into another shootout similar to Wolves last game, both sides have plenty of capable goal scorers.

Back Wolves to Win @ $2.00

SGM: Wolves to Win, Over 3.5 Goals

Manchester United Vs Burnley

Wednesday 30 January, 7:00am, Old Trafford

Manchester United 2 – Burnley 2

Burnley have not lost a league game since Boxing Day and United have not dropped any points since before Christmas.

One of these streaks will come to an end at Old Trafford but the question is which.

If you go by the market… or most logical lines of thought, the conclusion you should come to is Burnley’s streak will be the one to end here.

As long as United put out something resembling a full strength team, this game should bring them all three points.

Newcastle Vs Manchester City

Wednesday 30 January, 7:00am, St James’ Park

Newcastle 2 – Manchester City 1

In their last Premier League match, Newcastle got to face a Cardiff side battling relegation, this time they face a Manchester City side battling for the title.

Also not helping is the fact Newcastle have the third worst home record in the competition, picking up just ten points at St James’ Park.

City are on a four game winning run in the Premier League and have held their opponents scoreless in each of the last two matches.

As you would expect, City to win is more of a multi builder bet than an outright play, but if you like City to keep up that brick wall there is a good play there.

Thursday 31 January, 6:45am, Vitality Stadium

Bournemouth 4 – Chelsea 0

21 of Bournemouth’s 30 points so far this season have come at home and they now host a Chelsea side that has been very strong away from Stamford Bridge.

With seven wins, a draw and three losses in those games, Chelsea have the fourth best away record in the Premier League, trailing only the sides that are ahead of them on the table.

In their last League outing Bournemouth did manage to pick up a win over West Ham but it’s fair to say Chelsea is a real step up in quality over the Irons.

The Blues won the first meeting this season and go into this game as clear favourites, at their current price they are actually at pretty good value considering the relative mismatch.

Southampton Vs Crystal Palace

Thursday 31 January, 6:45am, St Mary’s Stadium

Southampton 1 – Crystal Palace 1

Both of these teams will be looking nervously over their shoulder, knowing they are anything but secure right now.

The Saints are in good form right now, winning their last two after holding Chelsea to a scoreless draw.

Helping their status as favourites is the fact they won the first meeting between the sides at Selhurst Park and would love to complete a Premier League double over Southampton for the first time.

That being said, even with back to back losses on their ledger, Palace have been in their matches and facing a side in a similar position to them on the table should level things out.

The market looks about right on this game and it is worth staying out of for the time being.


Liverpool Vs Leicester City

Thursday 31 January, 7:00am, Anfield

Liverpool 1 – Leicester 1

Two sides coming off 4-3 classics, although Leicester dropped their game while Liverpool fought back against a determined Crystal Palace.

Logic therefore dictates that this should be a very high scoring game but that’s no sure thing since Liverpool have, in general, played much more disciplined football this season.

The Reds have not lost at home this year, winning 10 of 11 and have given up just six goals this season, so Leicester might find it pretty tough to break them down.

You have to like the Reds here and for a bit of added value, back them to win to nil at home.

Thursday 31 January, 7:00am, Wembley Stadium

Tottenham 2 – Watford 1

Remarkably, after 23 rounds, Tottenham is the only side to not have a drawn match all season.

Spurs have won 17 games which is good enough to have them in third place, but with a massively depleted squad, confidence in that part of North London is not exactly sky high.

Not helping matters will be memories of a shock 2-1 upset away to Watford back in September.

The Hornets have taken points in two of the last four meetings, although both of those have come on home turf.

In their last three home Premier matches against Watford, Spurs have won every game to nil.

That being said, Watford have been very competitive and are unbeaten in their last four and look to be a decent value play here.

Back Watford Win/Draw Double Chance @ $2.25

SGM: Under 2.5 Goals, Both Teams to Score (No)


The Invincible run is over, Manchester City lose their first game of the season meaning Arsenal’s 2003/2004 side can once again celebrate being the only side to go through a year without a loss.

Those might be the only celebrations going on at the Emirates right now, with the Gunners starting to drift away from Chelsea and Tottenham, going three games without a win.

There are plenty of rematches of the Boxing Day EPL fixtures coming up so there will be plenty of teams with a chance to return the festive favours dished out.

Brighton and Hove Albion Vs Chelsea

Saturday 20 January, 11:30pm, Amex Stadium

Chelsea strolled to a comfortable 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge last month however they will have a tough task backing up after being taken to penalties by Norwich in the FA Cup replay midweek.

This game should follow a similar pattern to that first meeting with Chelsea holding a 2:1 time of possession advantage and 25 shots to 8.

After being held to draws in their last two games by opponents they should beat, Antonio Conte will be able to get his side up and running here to add to Brighton’s poor run of form.

Back Chelsea to Win to Nil @ $2.38

Arsenal Vs Crystal Palace

Sunday 21 January, 2:00am, Emirates Stadium

Three months ago this match preview would have simply read: “Arsenal doing well, Palace not so much, back Arsenal.”

Under Roy Hodgson, the visitors in this match have bounced back phenomenally and find themselves slowly climbing the table.

If they are looking for further signs of encouragement, they have been able to take points off Arsenal in two of their last four meetings.

When Arsenal won the Selhurst Park fixture three and a half weeks ago, they were pushed right to the limit with Palace almost pulling off a big comeback.

Until Arsenal pull themselves out of their funk you cannot invest in them (just ask their fans) so roll the dice on Palace here.

Back Crystal Palace Win/Draw Double Chance @ $2.45

Burnley Vs Manchester United

Sunday 21 January, 2:00am, Turf Moor

Just three weeks ago these sides played out an exciting 2-2 draw at Old Trafford and now Burnley get another crack at Jose Mourinho and Manchester United.

Jesse Lingard filled the super-sub role with a last-minute equaliser and will need to step up again here as it could be his last chance to shine prior to the reported arrival of Alexis Sanchez.

United have looked much more ruthless in their last two games, notching victories over Everton and Stoke.

That should continue here with United getting out to an early lead before a sealing goal later on.

Everton Vs West Bromwich Albion

Sunday 21 January, 2:00am, Goodison Park

A scoreless draw on Boxing Day between these sides and they are back at it again.

Coincidently, that was the last time Everton picked up a point losing to Bournemouth, Manchester United and Tottenham by a combined margin of 8-1.

West Brom managed to scramble a draw against Arsenal and a win over Brighton from their last three games.

History in this fixture before this season favours Everton and they should arrest their skid with a draw here.

Leicester City Vs Watford

Sunday 21 January, 2:00am, King Power Stadium

Watford claimed bragging rights last month with a 2-1 over Leicester three weeks ago.

The record here shows that this is a fixture with a habit of going one way or another with just one draw since 2010 when both teams were in the Championship.

Neither side has been able to produce a sweep of wins in the last four seasons either and playing at the King Power should give Leicester the edge.

Stoke City Vs Huddersfield

Sunday 21 January, 2:00am, bet365 Stadium

A pair of three goal losses for Huddersfield in their last two games has fans wondering if the team is already running out of steam.

Their last win was on December 17 over Watford and since then they have scored just three goals.

Stoke are struggling as well, with just one win and one draw since December 4 where they have scored all of four goals in that time.

This game has all the makings of a frustrating 0-0 draw so if you want to look for a long shot take the exact score market in this one.

West Ham Vs Bournemouth

Sunday 21 January, 2:00am, Olympic Stadium

A big win over Arsenal and Bournemouth continue their run of London clubs with a match against West Ham at the Olympic Stadium.

They played out one of the more exciting fixtures of the season with a 3-3 draw when they met after Christmas.

Prior to that the results have been split between the two sides in the Premier League era.

The recent form can’t be split from these sides with a loss, two draws and two wins so that is a good enough indicator for me.

Manchester City Vs Newcastle

Sunday 21 January, 4:30am, Etihad Stadium

This could be fun, will City have a letdown after losing for the first time or will they come out, re-focused and be ready to lash out at their next opponent.

Newcastle ran them close at St James’s Park with City having to settle for a 1-0 win.

As good as Newcastle have looked in recent times, two draws and a win, it is hard to see them having the drive to match a City side looking to get things back on track.

Take City comfortably here for a big, bounce back win.

Southampton Vs Tottenham

Monday 22 January, 3:00am, Wembley Stadium

Southampton looked like they forgot how to defend in their first meeting with Tottenham this season giving up 5 goals at Wembley.

Scoring has not been an issue for them lately, finding a way to get the ball into the goal in four of their last five.

Even so Tottenham are still a much, much better team and will be very eager to back up their very impressive 4-0 win against Everton.

Swansea City Vs Liverpool

Tuesday 23 January, 7:00am, Liberty Stadium

Everything about this game says that this is the fixture Liverpool slip up in.

They have just come off their biggest win of the season having lost their best player to Barcelona and now face the side at the foot of the table.

Swansea have pulled off four points from their last three matches as a response to a 5-0 hammering at Anfield.

This is a pick in favour of Jurgen Klopp and his ability to keep his squad focused on the task at hand and not lose any ground.

Back Liverpool to Win & Over 3.5 Goals @ $3


There are a number of massive games in week 24 of the 2016/2017 English Premier League season.

Chelsea and Arsenal will face off for the second time this season in a clash that could have crucial title consequences and Leicester City will host Manchester United at King Power Stadium.

There are eight other exciting fixtures set to take place this weekend and you can find our thoughts for every single game below.

Chelsea Vs Arsenal

Saturday 4 February, 11:30pm, Stamford Bridge

Chelsea 3  - Arsenal 1

Chelsea failed to take three points from their midweek clash with Liverpool, but they will still go into this clash with Arsenal as clear favourites.

There is no doubt that Chelsea have been the best team in the English Premier League this season, but they have still been a losing betting proposition as home favourites and they have drawn five of their past 18 games in this scenario.

Arsenal were extremely poor against Watford earlier in the week and it is tough to have any faith in them on the back of that performance.

The Gunners have not won a game as away underdogs this season, but they have drawn three of their four games in this scenario.

Chelsea are always tough to beat at Stamford Bridge, but the data suggests that the draw is the most likely option and is genuine overs at the current price of $3.40.

Back The Draw @ $3.40

Crystal Palace Vs Sunderland

Sunday 5 February, 2:00am, Selhurst Park

Crystal Palace 0  - Sunderland 4

Crystal Palace returned to winning form with an upset victory over Bournemouth and they will start this clash as very short-priced favourites.

It really is tough to get Crystal Palace as short as their current price – they have won only three of their past nine games as home favourites for a clear loss.

Sunderland played well to take a point from their midweek clash with Tottenham, but it has still been a long time between victories.

They have won just two of their past 17 games as away underdogs for a clear loss, but they have been able to draw five of these games.

Sunderland are capable of taking something from this clash and the $3.80 available for the draw is over the odds.

Back The Draw @ $3.80

Everton Vs Bournemouth

Sunday 5 February, 2:00am, Goodison Park

Everton 6  - Bournemouth 3

Everton had their winning streak ended by Stoke City during the week, but they will still go into this clash with Bournemouth as clear favourites.

Everton have proven tough to beat at Goodison Park over the past 12 months and they have won six of their past ten games as home favourites for a clear profit.

Bournemouth suffered a disappointing loss at the hands of Crystal Palace during the week  and they have not won for over a month.

The Cherries have won only three of their past 14 games as away underdogs for a clear loss and winning away from home has proven a real problem.

Everton should prove too strong for Bournemouth and are one of the safest betting plays of the week.

Hull City Vs Liverpool

Sunday 5 February, 2:00am, KC Stadium

Hull City 2  - Liverpool 0

Both these teams are coming off a midweek draw, but Liverpool will still start this match as dominant favourites.

Liverpool have not won a match for over a month and this is an excellent opportunity to do just that – they have won seven of their past 13 games as away favourites for a clear profit.

Hull City took a point from their midweek fixture with Manchester United and they have generally been fairly tough to breakdown in front of their home fans.

The Tigers have won three of their ten games as home underdogs this season for a profit, but whether they are good enough to compete with Liverpool is the question.

Liverpool are clearly the team to beat, but there is no real value at their current price and I am happy to stay out of this clash from a betting standpoint.

No Bet

Southampton Vs West Ham United

Sunday 5 February, 1:00am, St Mary's Stadium

Southampton 1  - West Ham 3

Southampton have loss five of their past six games and it is somewhat of a surprise that they will go into this clash as such clear favourites.

While their recent form has been very poor, Southampton continue to be a winning betting proposition as home favourites and they have won nine of their past 13 games in this scenario for a clear profit.

West Ham were no match for a rampant Manchester City during the week, but it is fair to say that they have an easier task against a struggling Southampton.

The Hammers have been able to take at least a point from nine of their past 15 games as away underdogs, but they are still a tricky team to trust from a betting standpoint.

The market looks to have got this clash just about right and I will be staying out.

No Bet

Watford Vs Burnley

Sunday 5 February, 1:00am, Vicarage Road

Watford 2  - Burnley 1

Watford will have taken plenty of confidence from their upset victory over Arsenal and they will go into this clash as favourites.

Vicarage Road has not really been a happy hunting ground for Watford this season and they have won just two of their past nine games as home favourites for a clear loss.

Burnley sit comfortably in 11th position on the English Premier League ladder, but they are yet to win a game away from home.

They have lost nine of their past ten games on the road and it is really difficult to have any faith in them whatsoever away from home.

This is a trap game from a betting standpoint and it is another one that I will be staying out of.

No Bet

West Bromwich Albion Vs Stoke City

Sunday 5 February, 1:00am, The Hawthorns

West Bromwich Albion 1  - Stoke City 0

This is set to be one of the most competitive games of the weekend and West Bromwich Albion are favourites from Stoke City.

West Bromwich Albion have improved their record in front of their home fans this season and they have won five of their past nine games as home favourites for a narrow profit.

Stoke City have taken at least a point from their past four clashes, but winning as away underdogs has been an issue this season.

They have won three of their past 15 games as away underdogs for a clear loss and it is tough to back them with any confidence in this fixture.

West Bromwich Albion should be able to return to winning form and there is a hint of value at their current price.

Tottenham Hotspur Vs Middlesbrough

Sunday 5 February, 4:30am, White Hart Lane

Tottenham 1  - Middlesbrough 0

Tottenham Hotspur have still only lost two games in the English Premier League this season, but they dropped crucial points to Sunderland during the week.

They will still go into this clash as clear favourites and really should prove far too good for Middlesbrough.

Tottenham have won 12 of their past 17 games as home favourites for a tidy profit and lesser teams have really struggled to score against them.

Middlesbrough took a point from their midweek clash with West Bromwich Albion, but they are yet to win a game in 2017.

They have won only one of their past 10 games as away underdogs, but they have proven tough to break down in this scenario and have drawn six of these clashes.

Tottenham should be able to record a comfortable victory and it is tough to see Middlesbrough scoring.

Manchester City Vs Swansea City

Monday 6 February, 12:30pm, Etihad Stadium

Manchester City 2  - Swansea City 1

Manchester City returned to their best form with an excellent midweek performance against West Ham.

Manchester City have won six of their past seven games against Swansea City, but they have still been a tough team to beat from a betting perspective – they have won nine of their past 17 games as home favourites for a clear loss.

Swansea City actually made it two wins on the trot with their victory over Southampton and they have played some quality football in recent weeks.

It is fair to say that they don’t win out of turn, but they have still proven to be an extremely profitable betting team as away underdogs.

It is obviously a gamble and I would be staking low, but the $13 on offer for an upset Swansea City victory is worth a small bet.

Leicester City Vs Manchester United

Monday 6 February, 3:00am, King Power Stadium

Leicester City 0  - Manchester United 3

Both Leicester City and Manchester United head into this clash off the back of disappointing performances.

Manchester United are clear favourites to come away with the three points, but it is tough to have any confidence in them after they failed to score against Hull City during the week.

The Red Devils have now won only seven of their past 13 games as away favourites for a narrow loss and they are a keen I am still keen to oppose.

Leicester City made it losses on the trot with their poor performance against Burnley during the week.

They have generally produced better performances against the best teams in the English Premier League and they continue to be a tough team to beat in front of their home fans.

Leicester City are capable of an outstanding effort on their day and the $5 for them to take the three points is well over the odds.
