EPL Predictions Matchday 6: Our 3 Best Bets
It’s time for our predictions and 3 best bets for Matchday 6 of the English Premier League 2022/23 season.
What do derbies tend to produce? Lots of goals.
The Merseyside Derby between Everton and Liverpool is no different. Add to that the fact that Liverpool have scored the second-highest number of goals so far this season (15). And with Everton at home, it will be vital that a goal or two is scored to keep the crowd happy and on side.
Chelsea have had a turbulent start to the season. So far, they have recorded two wins, two losses and one draw. With some new defenders coming through the door, Chelsea will be keen to pick up some more points in the coming weeks to fight for European places.
A game at home to London rivals, West Ham, is the perfect opportunity to bag a victory. West Ham have struggled so far this season, picking up just 4 points from 5 games. We are backing Chelsea in this one.
Now, this isn’t the most glamorous matchup on the matchday 6 slate. However, Nottingham Forest have a lot to prove here.
Coming into this one straight from a 6-0 defeat to Man City, this game will be the first time that a few of Nottingham Forest’s newbies will be introducing themselves to the fans. Forest have spent big on transfers in recent weeks, and those transfers will be keen to hit the ground running. What better place to do so than at their home stadium, in front of a full house at The City Ground.
Bournemouth are struggling after losing manager Scott Parker and suffering a 9-0 defeat to Liverpool. We expect Nottingham Forest to add to the misery on Saturday.

PointsBet SECOND CHANCE
EPL Predictions Matchday 4: Our 3 Best Bets
Liverpool have had their worst start to an English Premier League campaign in years. They currently sit in 16th place with just 2 points. Things need to change, and fast.
What better opportunity to change their fortunes than a home tie against newly-promoted Bournemouth. Bournemouth sit one place above Liverpool in the table, but you could argue that this is where Bournemouth belong.
Liverpool can win their fanbase round with a convincing win on Saturday at Anfield, and we predict that they will do so. Liverpool to win in both halves is great value at -135.
In case you were unsure, double chance means that your bet will win if your chosen team wins or draws. Two outcomes of a possible three will win you the money.
This week, our double chance lies with Newcastle. Unbeaten so far this season, the Magpies are 6th in the EPL table. Up against a struggling Wolves side in the relegation zone, we are confident that Newcastle will pick up at least 1 point.
Aside from their minor slip up against Newcastle, Man City look as strong as ever. There are also goals in this Manchester City side, with the likes of Erling Haaland, Phil Foden and Kevin De Bruyne in the squad.
Additionally, Crystal Palace have firepower of their own. Wilfried Zaha and Odsonne Édouard will be a constant threat to the Man City defense. We expect goals, and we expect a City victory.

EPL Predictions Matchday 3: Our 3 Best Bets
Spurs are looking very strong this season. So far, they’ve recorded a win on the opening day followed by a draw on the road against Chelsea. Not a bad start to the season.
Wolves, on the other hand, have picked up just 1 point from two games. A loss to Leeds and a draw with Fulham made for what should’ve been a relatively straightforward start to the season.
With confidence flying high in the Tottenham camp, we expect a routine win in Matchday 3 against a struggling Wolves team.
This is an incredible price for West Ham to win at home to an average Premier League team. Yes, West Ham have started the season poorly. But one of their losses came against Manchester City, so we won’t be too harsh.
Brighton have started the season strongly and sit on 4 points. However, their defensive tendencies will likely see them play out for an anti-climactic game on Sunday, where they will be happy with 1 point. West Ham will be confident of securing all 3 points though.
Well, we all know how Manchester United have been getting on. Two miserable defeats to Brighton and Brentford in the opening two weeks of the EPL season. Everything is bleak over in the United camp.
For Liverpool, things aren’t looking much better. The Premier League challengers are sitting on just two points from two games. This game is seen to many as a must-win. Liverpool, however, have significantly more in the tank in terms of quality, squad depth, and winning mentality. Liverpool will take the points here.
EPL Predictions Matchday 2: Our 3 Best Bets
Here are our predictions and 3 best bets for Matchday 2 of the English Premier League 2022/23 season.
Up first, we have our most likely outcome of the week (if you’re going by the sportsbook odds).
Arsenal recorded an impressive 2-0 opening day win on the road at Crystal Palace, where new boys Gabriel Jesus and William Saliba impressed. Now, they get to play in front of their own fans at the Emirates.
Leicester struggled in Matchday 1 when they drew at home to Brentford. They have also lost their number 1 goalkeeper, Kasper Schmeichel, this week as he secured a move to French club Nice. We expect Arsenal to perform to the same levels as they did last week and get another 3 points in front of their home fans.
Both Brighton and Newcastle got off to impressive starts this EPL campaign.
Brighton travelled to Old Trafford, where they stunned Manchester United and took all 3 points. Newcastle began their campaign at home to Nottingham Forest, which resulted in a routine 2-0 victory for the Magpies.
Our second pick is inspired by the offensive talent showcased by both Brighton and Newcastle last weekend. Brighton have attacking dangers in the form of Danny Welbeck and Pascal Groß. Newcastle Calum Wilson, Joelinton and Allan Saint-Maximin, to name a few. There will be goals.
The draw in EPL soccer betting is a risky one. And that’s why the odds for a draw are often highest. But we’re confident that Chelsea and Spurs will tie here.
Relatively difficult games in Matchday 1 resulted in victories for both Chelsea and Spurs (against Everton and Southampton, respectively). With Antonio Conte, Tottenham look considerably more stable in defense and harder to break down. Chelsea will struggle.
However, Chelsea have significant strengths of their own. Raheem Sterling and Kai Havertz will always be a danger against any team in the world. We don’t think Chelsea will get the win in their own back yard, but they definitely won’t lose this one.

EPL Predictions Matchday 1
At -275 odds, this is considered the most likely of our 3 EPL Matchday 1 picks.
Spurs have strengthened big-time this summer, with Ivan Perisic, Ives Bissouma, Richarlison and Clement Lenglet just some of the names to come in the door. This adds to their already impressive squad which includes Harry Kane and Heung Min Son.
To add to this, Tottenham also have a proven EPL manager in Antonio Conte. He will be confident of securing all three points in front of a home crowd on Saturday, against a Southampton side that may struggle this season. Spurs is a sure-fire bet here.
The Everton faithful are a loud, passionate and unforgiving bunch. Regardless of who their team faces at home, there will be a level of expectancy there.
This is sure to translate into goals at Goodison Park. Chelsea are favorites for this matchup, but it will be a very close game. We’re predicting goals in this one (three or more goals, specifically).
After finishing 6th last season, the red half of Manchester will be keen to get off to a good start. And in front of their home fans.
Erik ten Hag will also want to start his managerial tenure with a victory. On paper, this shouldn’t be too difficult against a Brighton side who may well struggle to survive this season. At -160 odds, the Man United moneyline looks like a good bet.

EPL Predictions Matchday 18: Our 3 Best Bets
Here are our predictions and 3 best bets for Matchday 18 of the English Premier League 2021/22 season.
Our first pick features Aston Villa, a team revitalized under new manager Steven Gerrard. Since he took over, Gerrard’s side has picked up 12 points from just 6 games and have shot up to 10th in the league.
Burnley, on the other hand, have only won one game this season and are currently in the relegation zone.
With home advantage and momentum on their side, we expect Aston Villa to defeat Burnley on Saturday.
This will be a tough test for Arsenal, and the odds show that. However, Arteta’s men have shown significant improvement this season and have won 3 of their last 5 league games. Arsenal now sit in 4th place.
Leeds have had a very inconsistent first half of the season. They have failed to win in their previous three matches. Elland Road can be a tough stadium to visit, but we think Arsenal will edge this one.
Liverpool are on fire at the moment and look to extend their six-match winning streak on the road to Tottenham on Sunday.
Their star man Mo Salah has scored or assisted in Liverpool’s last 15 games and will be fully confident of bagging a goal this weekend.
Spurs have won their last three league games, but these wins came against Norwich, Brentford and Leeds. Sunday will be a step up in class for them, and we expect Liverpool to come out on top.

EPL Predictions Matchday 16: Our 3 Best Bets
Here are our predictions and 3 best bets for Matchday 16 of the English Premier League 2021/22 season.
Brentford have had a very inconsistent season so far, but in 13th place they are meeting, or perhaps exceeding, their initial season expectations.
They face a Watford side that has lost its last three fixtures. With the home advantage, we expect Brentford to beat Watford on Friday. Odds of (+110) are generous for this outcome.
Still in the running for a Champions League spot, Arsenal would really make a statement with a win on Saturday in front of their own fans. They are currently 7th in the league.
Southampton are struggling to find form this season and are 16th, just 6 points above the relegation zone. Arsenal should have more than enough on Saturday to deal with the Saints.
This has got to be the best value bet of the weekend. West Ham are the feel-good story of the current Premier League campaign and are in 4th place.
Burnley’s story is very different. Recording just 10 points from 14 games, they find themselves in the relegation zone. Historically, Burnley has been a tough place to visit for teams. However, West Ham are flying and a win on the road on Sunday is expected.

EPL Predictions Week 13: Our 3 Best Bets
Here are our predictions and 3 best bets for Week 13 of the English Premier League 2021/22 season.
Southampton currently sit in 13th place after a disappointing defeat to then bottom-of-the-table Norwich. They have scored just 11 goals in 12 games, the joint-lowest number of goals scored by any team this season.
On the other hand, Liverpool have scored the highest number of goals in the league this season. They have netted 35 times in 12 games, including five against Manchester United and four against Arsenal. We expect another high-scoring performance for Liverpool on Saturday.
After back-to-back wins, Norwich will be hoping to make it a third victory in a row in front of their home fans. We predict that they will play on the front foot in search of goals while they have the momentum.
This will suit Wolves nicely on Saturday. Norwich have shown their defensive frailties this season and have conceded the joint-highest number of goals in the league as a result. There could definitely be goals from both sides in this one.
Recent results speak for themselves in this one. Chelsea, have won 4 of their last 5 EPL fixtures and find themselves at the top of the table. Man United have won just 1 of their previous 5 league matches, picking up just 3 points in the process.
With their manager gone, Chelsea will aim to pile the pressure on the Red Devils and secure a victory in front of their own fans at Stamford Bridge. We think that Chelsea will have too much for Man United to cope with on Sunday.

EPL Predictions Week 12: Our 3 Best Bets
Here are our predictions and 3 best bets for Week 12 of the English Premier League 2021/22 season.
Chelsea sit at the top of the table and have been there for weeks, while Leicester have slowly been dropping down the table and now find themselves in 12th place.
A home defeat to Arsenal followed by an uninspiring draw with Leeds suggests that Leicester will have a tough time against league leaders Chelsea on Saturday.
Chelsea drew their most recent fixture with Burnley after four consecutive victories. This draw will give Chelsea the wake up call that they need to push on towards the title, and we think they will record a win on the road.
Newcastle have conceded the second-highest number of goals this season, conceding 24 goals in just 11 games. Brentford will be eager to pounce on the Magpies’ defensive frailties on Saturday.
However, Newcastle do also have firepower going forward. They have scored 12 goals so far this season, which is admirable considering they sit in 19th place.
The appointment of manager Eddie Howe is also sure to spark excitement among the Newcastle support and may just give the home side the edge on Saturday. We expect goals from both teams.
Liverpool have scored the most goals in the Premier League this season, netting 31 times in 11 games. With the likes of Salah, Mane and Jota in their ranks, they are never short of a goal.
For Arsenal, this match comes at a great time. After a poor start to the season, the London side are now 5th in the table and in search of their fourth consecutive victory. We fully expect both teams to score in what will be a close affair.

EPL Predictions Week 11: Our 3 Best Bets
Here are our predictions and 3 best bets for Week 11 of the English Premier League 2021/22 season.
Aston Villa has one of the shakiest defensive units in the Premier League this season, conceding an average of 1.9 goals per game. Southampton sit one place above Villa in the table but have had a very inconsistent season so far.
While Aston Villa’s poor defensive record gives Southampton an opportunity to score goals, Villa are always a threat in offense. We’re expecting both teams to score in a game which both Southampton and Aston Villa will believe is theirs for the taking.
Brentford are a force to be reckoned with on home turf. In their first season in the English soccer top-flight, they have already picked up points against Arsenal and Liverpool at Brentford Community Stadium.
Norwich, on the other hand, are yet to win a game this season. Nothing seems to be going right for them and as a result have only picked up 2 points. Visiting Brentford won’t help their cause – we’re predicting a home win.
After a slip up at home to Brighton in Matchday 10, Liverpool head into a must-win game in an attempt to catch league-leaders Chelsea.
Liverpool face a West Ham side with 3 wins in their last 3 games and flying high. Just two points separate Liverpool and West Ham in the table. But, if Liverpool have aspirations of winning the Premier League this year then they must brush aside opponents like West Ham. We think Liverpool will win this one.
EPL Predictions Week 10: Our 3 Best Bets
Here are our predictions and 3 best bets for Week 10 of the English Premier League 2021/22 season.
Leicester and Arsenal currently sit 9th and 10th in the league, both on 14 points. Both have already experienced peaks and troughs even at this early stage of the season.
If we’re looking at recent form, both sides have picked up 8 points from their last 4 fixtures. This really is a well-matched fixture scheduled for Saturday.
Looking at the stats and the talent of the two squads, +245 odds for a draw is a very good price. It’s very hard to separate Leicester and Arsenal at the moment, so a draw is our prediction.
Brighton have been one of the surprise stories of the Premier League so far this season . They sit in 5th place, just 6 points behind Liverpool in 2nd.
After an incredible start to the season, however, Brighton have picked up just 3 points from their previous 4 games. Liverpool, on the other hand, have picked up 8 points in that time and are hot on Chelsea’s heels.
At Anfield, Liverpool should have no trouble brushing Brighton aside. Their offensive threat will be too much for Brighton, who are expected to sit deep for the majority of the 90 minutes.
After Man United’s embarrassing 5-0 home defeat to rivals Liverpool last weekend, Spurs might well be the one team that they wouldn’t mind facing.
Tottenham come into this game following a 1-0 defeat to West Ham, with manager Nuno Espirito Santo under pressure to get a result. However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is certainly under even more pressure to find a winning formula on Saturday.
Both sides will be afraid to lose this matchup. We are predicting a draw in this one.

EPL Predictions Week 9: Our 3 Best Bets
Here are our predictions and 3 best bets for Week 9 of the English Premier League 2021/22 season.
After an extremely poor start to the season, Arsenal’s recent form has improved considerably. Arteta’s men are unbeated in five games, with their most recent game ending 1-1 after a last-gasp equaliser against Crystal Palace.
The team are playing with more confidence and freedom compared to the beginning of the season and will be hoping to secure all 3 points on Friday.
Aston Villa have lost their last 3 games and, although just one place below Arsenal in the table, should probably be higher odds to win this one than the sportsbooks suggest. Odds of -110 for Arsenal at home should be snatched at.
Leeds have the third-worst defense in the league based on number of goals conceded. Wolves will be relishing the opportunity to play this leaky defensive unit, having scored 5 goals in their previous two Premier League fixtures.
However, Wolves’ defense isn’t exactly the greatest. They have conceded 3 goals in two games against average opponents in Newcastle and Aston Villa. It’s hard to separate these two teams in the betting markets, but we predict both to get on the goalsheet.
Mohamed Salah became the first ever Liverpool player to score in nine consecutive games after his two goals against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League this week. Can he make it ten in a row?
We think he will. The stage is set, in a derby match against Manchester United. Salah has scored 7 goals in his last 5 matches, and they have come against some top teams like Atletico Madrid, Porto and Manchester City.
As Liverpool’s current penalty taker too, any fouls conceded by Manchester United in the box are likely to result in a Salah goal.

EPL Predictions Week 8: Our 3 Best Bets
Here are our predictions and 3 best bets for Week 8 of the English Premier League 2021/22 season.
The players are just back from the international break (or a rest from football) and we expect this to show on the park.
Man City are huge favorites at -800 and, while we are in no doubt that they will take all 3 points on Saturday, we also think that most goals will be scored in the second half.
Expect a cagey start to the game, with Burnley defending for their lives and Man City just getting back into the rhythm of things. Burnley will tire in the second half and the goals will follow.
Newly-promoted Brentford have shown so far this season that they are incredibly hard to beat at home. They have beaten Arsenal and drawn with Liverpool at Brentford Community Stadium in recent weeks.
However, Chelsea sit at the top of the table and all eyes are on them. If you want to win the Premier League, these are the kind of games Chelsea need to take all 3 points from. The Blues have won five of their opening seven games this season and we predict that they’ll win their sixth on Saturday.
Two of the highest-scoring teams in the league meet on Sunday at Goodison Park. Both teams have scored in six of West Ham’s seven games this season. Four of Everton’s seven games have resulted in goals for both sides.
There is plenty of offensive talent on both sides. West Ham’s Michail Antonio has already racked up 5 goals and 3 assists, while Andros Townsend, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Demarai Gray are playing some of their best football this season at Everton.
There will be goals in this game. We expect goals from both teams on Sunday.

EPL Predictions Week 7: Our 3 Best Bets
Here are our predictions and 3 best bets for Week 7 of the English Premier League 2021/22 season.
Neither of these teams have freely found the net so far this season. In the opening six games of the season, Wolves have scored in just two games. Newcastle have netted just 7 goals in the same number of games.
With Wolves and Newcastle sitting 14th and 17th in the table respectively, it is difficult to pick a winner from this matchup. However, we do expect a low-scoring affair which is why we have picked under 2.5 goals.
After a terrible start to the season, Arsenal have picked themselves up and have won their last three games. Brighton are the surprise story of the season so far and sit in 6th place.
Both teams will be desperate for three points here to keep their positive runs going. We’re predicting goals from both sides in what should be a high-scoring clash.
Leeds haven’t had the best of starts to the season and are yet to record their first win. However, with newly-promoted Norwich coming to town, Leeds will certainly fancy their chances.
Aw winless campaign so far doesn’t tell the full story. Leeds have performed well in some games and perhaps haven’t had the luck needed at times to clinch all three points. Norwich are beatable and we think that the home advantage will prove decisive in this matchup.

EPL Predictions Week 6: Our 3 Best Bets
Here are our predictions and 3 best bets for Week 6 of the English Premier League 2021/22 season.
There is very little to separate these two sides, both in the betting lines and in the Premier League table. Chelsea (+170 to win) sit top of the table on 13 points, while Manchester City (+175 to win) are in fifth-place on 10 points.
Manchester City will be determined to up their game after a poor result against Southampton last weekend, which ended 0-0. Pep Guardiola will be keen to ensure his men don’t drop any more points at this early stage of the season.
On paper, Manchester City arguably have the advantage. However, looking at recent results and performances, Chelsea have the edge. This will be an exciting matchup which we predict will end in a draw.
Both teams have started the season far from impressively, with Southampton currently in 15th place and Wolves in 16th.
Southampton have drawn four of their first five games, but have failed to find the net in their last two. As a result, we expect Ralph Hasenhüttl to demand attacking threat from his Southampton side, especially against a team who have conceded in every game this season.
Wolves will also be keen to attack from the first minute. This is a winnable game for both sides and we predict an end-to-end game filled with offensive opportunities.
Both teams have scored in four out of five league games this season for both Leeds and West Ham. We expect the same outcome on Saturday.
Marco Bielsa’s Leeds are known for their free-flowing attacking soccer. With Raphinha and Patrick Bamford in offense, goals are always expected from the Leeds home crowd. However, their lack of defensive stability often leaves Leeds vulnerable to conceding.
West Ham are off to a good start this season and currently sit eighth in the league. West Ham have the Premier League’s current top goalscorer in Michail Antonio, who is sure to cause Leeds all kinds of problems.

EPL Predictions Week 5: Our 3 Best Bets
Here are our predictions and 3 best bets for Week 5 of the English Premier League 2021/22 season.
Arsenal had a terrible start to their 2020/21 campaign but, after three straight losses, they’re back to winning ways.
Star man Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang got back on the scoresheet in Arsenal’s victory over Norwich. Now, they travel to Turf Moor to play a Burnley side also struggling at the bottom of the table.
Burnley have picked up just 1 point in four games. At generous odds of +100, we expect Arsenal to make it two wins in a row on Saturday.
Everton are flying high amongst the leading pack at the top of the table after four matchdays. Aston Villa have had a mixed start to the season, picking up 4 points from four games.
A total of 14 goals have been scored in Everton’s four games this season, with 12 goals being scored in Aston Villa’s. If we’re going by this data, expect goals from both sides on Saturday. Both teams to score is a good bet.
All eyes were on Old Trafford last weekend as one of the greatest players of all time made his second debut for the red side of Manchester. Ronaldo scored a double against Newcastle and is off to a great start.
The whole United team are performing well and working effectively as a team. They face tough opposition in West Ham on Sunday, but we are expecting Ronaldo and co. to do the job at the Olympic Stadium.

EPL Predictions Week 4: Our 3 Best Bets
Here are our predictions and 3 best bets for Week 4 of the English Premier League 2021/22 season.
If there’s one game on the Premier League week 4 slate that screams goals, it’s this one. West Ham currently sit in 2nd place in the Premier League table and have scored 10 goals in the first three games of the season. They will hope to continue their superb form on the road on Saturday.
After three games, Southampton are yet to secure a shutout and are also yet to fail to find the net. There has been an average of more than 3 goals in all of Southampton’s games so far this season and we expect the trend to continue on Saturday.
Based on results so far this season, both teams to score in a Tottenham fixture doesn’t seem the best bet. In three games, they have scored three and are yet to concede.
However, Crystal Palace have just secured the signing of striker Odsonne Edouard who is very highly rated by the media. He will be hoping to get off the mark in his first appearance with a goal, and Palace (and their fans) will be boosted by his arrival.
We do think Spurs will win this one, but there should be goals from both sides.
Everton are off to a flier this season, with 7 points from their first three matches. Their only home match so far this season resulted in a 3-1 victory and they are always favored when they are playing at Goodison Park.
On the other hand, Burnley have started slow. With just 1 point from their first three games, they lack match winners in their side. Expect Everton to grab all three points on Monday.

EPL Predictions Week 3: Our 3 Best Bets
Here are our predictions and 3 best bets for Week 3 of the English Premier League 2021/22 season.
Leicester will be hoping to bounce back after a disappointing 4-1 defeat to West Ham last week. However, they played more than half the game with 10 men and are still expected to finish top 6 by many soccer experts this season.
Newly-promoted Norwich have had probably the toughest possible start to their first season back in the Premier League, having played and lost to both Liverpool and Manchester City in the first two matchdays.
After playing such tough opponents, it is unfair to judge Norwich at this stage of the season. However, with a strong squad and a winning mentality, as proven by their recent Community Shield victory, Leicester are our pick for this matchup.
Both teams have played two and won two. Both have a goal difference of +5. There isn’t much to separate Liverpool and Chelsea so far this season, which is why we’re predicting a draw.
Chelsea have beaten Crystal Palace and Arsenal before this match, while Liverpool have defeated Norwich and Burnley. With Arsenal struggling early on, Chelsea and Liverpool are yet to be properly challenged.
Neither side will want to lose their unbeaten record in Week 3 and both teams will play this one cautiously. A draw is the most likely outcome.
Manchester United experienced a minor blip last week when they drew on the road to Southampton. However, their performance on matchday 1 was very impressive and may be representative of how this season will pan out.
Wolves are winless so far this season after 1-0 defeats to both Leicester and Tottenham. They are a strong side and are expected to finish in the top half of the Premier League table, but Manchester United are far stronger on paper and should collect all three points on Sunday.

EPL Predictions Week 2: Our 3 Best Bets
Here are our predictions and 3 best bets for Week 2 of the English Premier League 2021/22 season.
Aston Villa’s season opener ended in 3-2 defeat to Watford. Newcastle also suffered defeat to West Ham, with the game ending 4-2.
Both games were extremely high scoring, with both teams scoring in each. West Ham have a strong attacking threat, but their offensive mentality can often result in goals conceded at the back. We are predicting another high-scoring game, with both teams netting.
Manchester United made a splash on the new EPL season with a convincing 5-1 victory over Leeds. Southampton, on the other hand, suffered a 3-1 defeat to Everton.
With new signings in the door, United are only going to get stronger and should have more than enough quality to beat Southampton.
Tottenham upset the majority of our parlays at the weekend with a victory over reigning champions Manchester City. This was without their star man, Harry Kane.
Whether Harry Kane is back this week or not, Tottenham will be very prepared for this matchup. Their new manager, Nuno Espírito Santo, was Wolves manager last season so knows the club and its players inside-out.
This added knowledge of their opponents will suit Tottenham and will give them a great chance of success on Sunday.
