Top EPL Games to Bet and Watch this Week
- When: Friday, May 7 – Monday, May 10
Friday, May 7th Match
- Newcastle United +1 ½ (-169) / Leicester City -1 ½ (+122)
Leicester City’s form is decent enough to warrant a bet on the handicap. Newcastle had played well, winning 2 and then drawing with Liverpool, before a May 2 loss to Southampton by a couple of goals. But the odds on Newcastle, -169, make them an underlay. LC is the play.
Soccer Pick: Leicester City
Saturday, May 8th Matches
- Tottenham +120 / Leeds United +183
Up until a 2-goal loss to Birghton & Hove on May 1, Leeds had played like one of the betters squads in the Premier. But the loss to B&H may have turned Leeds’ form south. Tottenham beat Sheffield 4-0 on May 2. The Hotspur beat Leeds 3-0 in the last head-to-head. Tottenham gets the nod.
Soccer Pick: Tottenham
- Crystal Palace +148 / Sheffield United +171
Sheffield has a win and 4 losses in their last 5 matches. Crystal Palace’s form isn’t good, 3 losses in a row, but the 3 losses were to top Premier League teams Chelsea, Leicester, and Manchester City. Palace should handle the home team.
Soccer Pick: Crystal Palace
- Chelsea +341 / Manchester City -141
On April 17, Chelsea bet Manchester City 1-0. The Blues have played great since then, drawing twice, including against Real Madrid in a UCL match, and winning twice. Man City has won 4 straight since then. This match could go either way, though, making the Sky Blues an underlay at the odds.
Soccer Pick: Chelsea
- Southampton +1 ½ (-126) / Liverpool -1 ½ (-108)
Liverpool has drawn in 3 straight. Not only that but Southampton beat Liverpool 1-0 in the last head-to-head. Pool shouldn’t lose this match. Southampton offers fair odds at +1 ½. The road team on the handicap is the best play.
Soccer Pick: Southampton
Sunday, May 9th Matches
- Brighton & Hove +154 / Wolverhampton +160
Just when we thought Wolverhampton’s form was turning around, the Wanderers had won 2 straight, they lose by 4 goals to Burnley. On May 1, Brighton beat Leeds 1-0. Going back to 2019, B&H and Wolverhampton have drawn in 4 straight. In this match, Brighton & Hove offers enough to be the solid play.
Soccer Pick: Brighton & Hove
- Manchester United -144 / Aston Villa +320
Man United has 4 wins and a draw in their last 5. United beat As Roma in a Europa League match 6-2 on April 29. Unless Man U falls apart, they should handle Aston Villa. The -144 odds are more than fair.
Soccer Pick: Manchester United
- Everton +181 / West Ham United +133
Everton’s 1-0 victory over Arsenal on April 23 may have been an anomaly. The road team in this followed up the victory with a 1-2 loss against Aston Villa. West Ham has lost 2 straight. But the home squad beat Everton in the last. WHU gets the call.
Soccer Pick: West Ham United
- West Bromwich +1 ½ (-169) / Arsenal -1 ½ (+122)
Arsenal beat Newcastle by a couple on May 2. The Gunners are on their pitch for this. That gives them an edge. Want to know what else gives Arsenal an edge? The home team dominated West Brom 4-0 in the last head-to-head. Laying the 1 ½.
Soccer Pick: ArsenalMonday, May 10th Match
- Burnley +245 / Fulham +100
Don’t let the odds fool you. This will be a tough match. Burnley dominated Wolverhampton in their last. They beat the Wanderers 2-0. Fulham drew with Arsenal on April 18. They’ve struggled outside of that. Burnley doesn’t often make it 2 in a row, but the odds force us towards the road squad. No way Fulham should offer such low odds.
Soccer Pick: Burnley
