Top EPL Games to Bet On this Week (Mar. 6th – Mar. 8th)
Saturday, March 6th Games
- Arsenal -158 / Burnley +420
After a draw versus Benfica in a Europa League match and a loss to Man City, the Gunners have turned around their form. They beat Benfica 3-2 in the second aggregate. Arsenal dumped Leicester 3-1 on Feb. 28. The road chalk looks to be in a great position for this match.
Soccer Free Pick: Arsenal
- Southampton +118 / Sheffield +225
On March 3, Sheffield beat Aston Villa 1-0. It could be difficult for the home squad to repeat that effort. Although Southampton has lost three of their last four, they dominated Sheffield a combined 6-1 in the last two head-to-head games.
Soccer Free Pick: Southampton
- Wolverhampton +204 / Aston Villa +133
This should be a close match. Aston Villa gets the nod, though, because Wolverhampton heads to their pitch after an embarrassing 1-4 loss against the Sky Blues. The Wanderers may suffer some of the ill effects from that loss in this.
Soccer Free Pick: Wolverhampton
- Leicester City +163 / Brighton & Hove +162
Brighton & Hove has 2 losses and 3 draws in their last 5. Leicester’s form suggest they belong in The Championship, the league right below the Premier. The road team’s draw and 2 losses in your last 3, including dropping a match 0-2 versus Slavia Prague in a Europa League game, doesn’t inspire confidence. We’re backing B&H.
Soccer Free Pick: Brighton & Hove
- Newcastle +195 / West Bromwich +137
The road squad beat West Brom in their last couple of head-to-head games. West Bromwich beat Brighton & Hove 1-0 in their last. The home squad also drew with Man United on Feb. 14 and Burnley on Feb. 20. Bromwich should handle Newcastle.
Soccer Free Pick: West Bromwich
Sunday, March 7th Games
- Fulham +1 ½ (-109) / Liverpool -1 ½ (-120)
The Reds play Chelsea on March 4. Make sure to check out that match. There’s a good chance The Blues beat Liverpool. If they do, Pool may be looking for payback when Fulham hits the pitch. But these two drew 1-1 in December. Backing Fulham on the handicap is the logical play.
Soccer Free Pick: Fulham
- Crystal Palace +1 ½ (-163) / Tottenham -1 ½ (+124)
Finally, the Hotspur are playing to their potential. Tottenham has 3 wins and a loss in their last 4. Granted, two of the wins happened against Wolfsberger in Europa League matches. Still, the Hotspur offer excellent odds to beat a team by 1 ½ that they’ve dominated in the past. We’re laying it.
Soccer Free Pick: Tottenham
- Manchester United +446 / Manchester City -181
The weekend’s most intriguing match is also the Premier League’s most important. As of March 3, Man City is in first place on the EPL Standings. Man United is in second place. The chance of Man U catching the Sky Blues is almost nil. But United could take scorching City down a peg. How possible is that happening? Not great, but much better than +446, making Man U an overlay.
Soccer Free Pick: Manchester United
Monday, March 8th Games
- Everton +476 / Chelsea -188
The Blues have a victory and a couple of draws in their last 3. The win impressed. Chelsea beat top La Liga squad Atletico Madrid 1-0 in a Champions League match. The Blues followed up the victory with a 0-0 draw versus Man U. Everton beat Liverpool 2-0 on Feb. 20 and 1-0 on March 1. Give the road team a chance.
Soccer Free Pick: Everton
- Leeds +229 / West Ham +102
Before a 1-2 loss against Man City on Feb. 27, West Ham had won two in a row. The home squad followed up a 3-0 victory against Sheffield on Feb. 15 with a 2-1 victory against Tottenham on Feb. 21. Leeds has lost 3-of-4. West Ham takes this.
