Several English Premier League matches will occur this midweek, consisting of five clashes of round 18 and on from the opening week, between Burnely and Manchester United. BetXChange is here to deliver a short preview and a pick for each one, so stay tuned and read this article because it might be useful to you.
Sheffield United vs. Newcastle
The Blades finally won after 19 consecutive matches, defeating Bristol Rovers in the FA Cup, 2-3. It isn’t a big deal because Sheffield is still hammered to the EPL’s bottom, but once you have 11 losses in 12 matches, a win, regardless of the opponent, comes in handy. The Magpies lost to Arsenal in the same competition, which was their seventh in a row without a triumph. Still, they are looking much healthier and better than the hosts, which is why we suggest betting on their success in this event.
Pick: Newcastle 2.10 at BetXChange
Wolves vs. Everton
An extremely important match for both sides, as they want to deliver some consistency in their results and performances. After two losses and draws in a row, Wolves won in the FAC, while on the other side, Everton lost at home in the EPL to WEst Ham before beating Rotheram in the FA Cup. This will no doubt be a very tough and tactically demanding meeting, which is why betting on under 2.5 goals stands as the best possible solution for it.
Pick: Under 2.5 goals 0.60 at BetXChange
Manchester City vs. Brighton
The Citizens are going up, and their recent results are suggesting so. They have five straight victories, four of them on the road, meaning that Guardiola’s guys are eager to come back home. On the other side, the Seagulls posted just one victory in the previous 10 events. To cut it short, everything is clear here.
Pick: Manchester City -1.5 0.45 at BetXChange
Aston Villa vs. Tottenham
Arguably the most interesting match of the entire round. The Spurs are fourth, while Villa occupies No.8, three points behind Mourinho’s side, and seven behind Liverpool, who tops the league. A win in this one significantly changes the landscape in the upper part of the standings, which is why they told that the event at Villa Park, is the most exciting of all played during midweek. The home team lost its pace in recent times, which is the only reason we give an edge to Tottenham in this event.
Pick: Tottenham 0.50 at BetXChange
Arsenal vs. Crystal Palace
The Gunners had some troubles against Newcastle in the FA Cup, but progressed to the next stage following extra-time. Meanwhile, Crystal Palace lost to Wolves, which was their eighth win over the past 10 without a victory. Meanwhile, for Arsenal, it was the fourth consecutive victory, third without an allowed goal. Those clean sheets were something Mikel Arteta’s side desperately needed, both to improve their results and to gain some morale. Anything but Arsenal’s triumph in this matchup would be surprising.
Pick: Arsenal 0.50 at BetXChange
Burnley vs. Manchester United
This is, in fact, the game from the opening EPL round. The Clarets are a completely different team than the one a few weeks ago, as they now post wins (three in the past four games), and play with significantly higher confidence. United is even better. Even though they lost in the Carabao Cup semis to Man City, Solskajer’s crew is excellent. For them, the match at Turf Moore is arguably the biggest so far in this campaign, because a win here would propel them to the top spot of the Premiership standings.
Pick: Man United 0.50 at BetXChange
