English Premier League Gameweek 13 is ahead of us, and this one comes just two days following the closure of the previous week. BetXChange will cover all 10 games in this article, giving a pick for each one of them.
Wolves vs. Chelsea
The opening match of the round and immediately a derby. The Wolves suffered a huge setback losing against Aston Villa in the stoppage time, while Chelsea lost too, versus Everton. This is a test of character for both sides, so there won’t be too many goals, as both Espirito Santo and Lampard will apply cautious tactics.
Pick: Under 2.5 goals 0.80 at BetXChange
Manchester City vs. West Brom
The Citizens have four wins and a draw in the past five games at home, saving their net on four occasions and scoring 13 goals in those four wins. Meanwhile, WBA is the team with the worst defense in the league, and that clearly tells us that they haven’t got a chance at Etihad.
Pick: Man City over 1.5 HT 1.00 at BetXChange
Arsenal vs. Southampton
The Gunners have massive chemistry problems, and they suffered a knockout against Burnely on Sunday night. Arteta lost control over the team, and Granit Xhaka’s behavior showed that. The Saints are playing excellent with 10 of the last 15 points possible won over the past few weeks. We smell here, another unpleasant surprise for Arsenal’s fans, and one more blow to their ambitions.
Pick: Southampton or draw 0.61 at BetXChange
Leicester vs. Everton
Now, this is the matchup everyone wanted to see. The Foxes and the Toffees, two sides who are bidding to enter the Champions League zone, and spoil the fun for all the big teams. Leicester has three wins in a row, and they didn’t allow a goal in dour of the past five events at home. Everton defeated Chelsea on Saturday, snapping a small crisis this team had entered. Knowing both Rodgers and Ancelotti, there won’t be many goals involved in this affair.
Pick: Moderate efficiency, 2 or 3 goals, 1.00 at BetXChange
Leeds United vs. Newcastle
The Peacocks deflated following a great start, posting just one win in the previous six events. They are allowing too many goals, which is Bielsa’s main concern. Newcastle is tough on the road, with just one of its games since the campaign started with over 2.5 goals. They will try to close against the hosts and wait for the chance to strike from the counter-attack.
Pick: Under 2.5 goals 1.10 at BetXChange
Fulham vs. Brighton
Two weak teams, coming after one another, in a game that could mean a lot at the end of the championship. The Cottagers and the Seagulls are relegation contenders, and their clash isn’t worth three but six points, as they present rivals to one another. We will go with Fulham here, only because of their draw against Liverpool on Sunday.
Pick: Fulham 1.87 at BetXChange
Liverpool vs. Tottenham
The Reds are crippled with injuries, and Jurgen Klopp faces many problems. His team is on the downhill, and the German sees that. As for the guests, Mourinho is coming to close all the paths towards the goal and hope to see some magic coming from Son and Harry Kane. Therefore, don’t bet on high-efficiency in this one.
Pick: Under 2.5 goals 1.20 at BetXChange
West Ham United vs. Crystal Palace
The two London rivals are playing solid this year, especially the Hammers, who are sixth in the standings. The key to that are home events, where they have just two defeats and have managed to score a goal in each but the opening match. Palace is inconsistent when talking about the results but very adaptable on the field.
Pick: Both teams to score 0.75 at BetXChange
Aston Villa vs. Burnley
The Villans stole a win at Molineux with Anwar El-Ghazi’s 94th-minute penalty, receiving a major boost before this event. On the other side, the Clarets have two games in a row without a defeat, beating Arsenal 0-1 two days ago.
Pick: Under 2.5 goals 1.00 at BetXChange
Sheffield Utd vs. Manchester Utd
The Blades are hammered to the bottom of the standings, with one point in 12 games, and for a shaken Red Devils, this is a superb opportunity to win some easy points. They need a win badly, and that is why betting on the guests is the only reasonable choice here.
Pick: Manchester United 0.44 at BetXChange
