EPL Betting: Best Bets On The Board This Week



Manchester City managed to stop the bleeding in impressive fashion with a 6-1 win over Newcastle that allowed them to reclaim top spot in the Premier League table and they should have no problem stringing together a second consecutive win against Bournemouth on Saturday. Arsenal will be expected to keep pace as they clash with Watford while Crystal Palace braces for a tough test against West Ham United but neither of those matchups managed to capture our intrigue in the same fashion as the following three contests. We’re off on an international break this week but we’re looking ahead. Here is a look at the best bets on the board for the three most intriguing Premier League games next weekend.

Tottenham vs. Liverpool
Saturday, 7:45 AM ET

The Brendan Rodgers era has come to an end at Liverpool but where does the club go from here? Jurgen Klopp might be the right manager for the job but even with an established style it will take time for him to figure out how to maximize the potential of the players on his roster and right now that is not a luxury he has for this season. Meanwhile, Tottenham followed up an impressive 4-1 win over City with a relatively mediocre performance in their 2-2 draw against Swansea that was somewhat of a trap game but should be regrouped and focused heading in to this match. For Spurs to take the next step as a legitimate Premier League contender they will have to start taking advantage of winnable games like last week’s match with Swansea and this week’s contest with Liverpool. The talent is certainly there, so look for Tottenham to bounce back with a big win at home.

Chelsea vs. Aston Villa
Saturday, 10:00 AM ET

The combination of the regression following last year’s dominance and Jose Mourinho’s reactions following every match has made Chelsea one of the most intriguing teams to follow. The Blues are coming off one of the most dominant championship seasons in league history and yet they are tied with West Brom and newly promoted Bournemouth just above the cutoff line at the bottom of the table. Fortunately for Chelsea, they have a date with one of the three teams that are actually below them in the standings this season. After everything we have seen so far there is no doubt Mourinho’s men are far from a lock to win, but they should be able to find a way to come out on top in this match.

Everton vs. Manchester United
Saturday, 10:00 AM ET

United’s climb up the table came to a sudden halt when the clubs’ three-game win streak ended in a 3-0 loss to Arsenal and now all eyes will be on Louis van Gaal’s club to see how they respond. The defense and midfield will undoubtedly have to be better than it was in the lopsided loss to Gunners, especially now that Everton has gotten its season back on track following a terrible start. It might still be early but these are important points on the line between a pair of clubs that have the potential to finish in the top four this season so look for it to be a very tight game with neither team willing to give the other much space and time to operate and create opportunities at the offense end of the pitch.
