Watford vs Tottenham

Tottenham continues to struggle. The Hotspur’s last win happened on Dec. 26. Tottenham beat Bright & Hove Albion 2-1. Watford is in better form. But the Hotspur lost by a single goal, 1-0, to Liverpool in their last. Tottenham’s form is on the improve. They can get the win here.

Manchester City vs Crystal Palace

Man City is on a roll. They’ve won 5 in a row. However, in the last 5 head-to-head matchups against Crystal Palace, Manchester City has won by 3 goals or more once. That happened in a 5-0 game back on Sep. 23, 2017. Take the 2 ½ goals on Palace.

Southampton vs Wolverhampton

The most competitive English Premier League matchup on Saturday has Southampton up against Wolverhampton. Wolverhampton offers worse odds. Southampton is the pick, though. The Southies have 4 wins and a draw in their last 5. They beat Leicester City, Tottenham, and Chelsea in 3 wins. They should handle the Wanderers on Jan. 18.
Soccer Betting Pick: Southampton
Real Madrid vs Sevilla FC
- La Liga Odds: Real Madrid -172 / Sevilla FC +367
On Sunday, Real Madrid beat Atletico on penalty kicks for the Supercopa Championship. They can’t rest on their laurels. Saturday’s matchup against Sevilla is a tough game for Real. Sevilla beat Real Madrid twice in 2018 while Real turned the tables with 2 wins in 2019. Sevilla has 3 wins and a draw in their last 4, though. Give Sevilla a chance to upset Real in regulation.
Soccer Betting Pick: Sevilla
Sunday, Jan. 19th

Pool has 20 wins and a draw in their 21 EPL matches. They set a points record in their last match, a 1-0 win over Tottenham. But Man United has a chance to beat Liverpool.
