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.

Pick 1: Arsenal to win v Aston Villa (-110 at DraftKings)

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.

Pick 2: Both teams to score in Leeds v Wolves (-150 at DraftKings)

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.

Pick 3: Mohamed Salah anytime goalscorer (+135 at DraftKings)

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.

Pick 1: Half with most goals = 2nd half in Man City v Burnley (+105 at DraftKings)

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.

Pick 2: Chelsea to win v Brentford (-165 at DraftKings)

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.

Pick 3: Over 2.5 goals in Everton v West Ham (-120 at DraftKings)

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.

Pick 1: Under 2.5 goals in Wolves v Newcastle (-110 at DraftKings)

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.

Pick 2: Both teams to score in Brighton v Arsenal (-125 at DraftKings)

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.

Pick 3: Leeds ML v Watford (-135 at DraftKings)

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.

Pick 1: Draw in Chelsea v Manchester City (+225 at DraftKings)

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.

Pick 2: Both teams to score in Southampton v Wolves (-120 at DraftKings)

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.

Pick 3: Both teams to score in Leeds v West Ham (-180 at DraftKings)

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.

Pick 1: Arsenal ML v Burnley (+100 at DraftKings)

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.

Pick 2: Both teams to score in Aston Villa v Everton (-130 at DraftKings)

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.

Pick 3: Man United ML v West Ham (-130 at DraftKings)

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.

Pick 1: Over 2.5 goals in Southampton v West Ham (-140 at DraftKings)

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.

Pick 2: Both teams to score in Crystal Palace v Tottenham (-110 at DraftKings)

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.

Pick 3: Everton ML v Burnley (-135 at DraftKings)

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.

Pick 1: Leicester ML v Norwich (-130 at DraftKings)

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.

Pick 2: Draw in Liverpool v Chelsea (+250 at DraftKings)

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.

Pick 3: Manchester United ML v Wolves (-140 at DraftKings)

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.

Pick 1: Both teams to score in Aston Villa v Newcastle (-130 at DraftKings)

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.

Pick 2: Manchester United ML v Southampton (-160 at DraftKings)

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.

Pick 3: Tottenham ML vs Wolves (+140 at DraftKings)

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.
