We were desperate for some Premier League football during this international break. It isn’t that we don’t like seeing the best nations in the world playing competitive matches, but still, EPL is a completely different experience. BetXChange brings a preview of Gameweek 30, so stay tuned.
Chelsea vs. West Brom
The Blues are arguably the best defense in England, and probably the entire Europe so far, while on the other side, the Baggies have massive problems on both ends of the field. Since Thomas Tuchell sat on Chelsea’s bench, the team from Stamford didn’t lose a single game, and anything but a win here would be a massive failure for them.
Pick: Chelsea -1.5 0.70 at BetXChange
Leeds vs. Sheffield United
This is a must-win game for the Peacocks, who are facing the last team in the standings and a sure passenger to the Championship. Simply, Marcelo Bielsa’s guys have to win this match because they won’t get a better chance.
Pick: Leeds 0.50 at BetXChange
Leicester vs. Manchester City
The Foxes are one of few teams over the past several years to win at Etihad, as they smashed the Citizens in the first part of the season, 2-5. However, since then, a lot has changed. Even though the guests are favorites, we won’t propose betting on their win, but focus on efficiency, suggesting to put money on a low-scoring affair.
Pick: Under 2.5 goals 1.00 at BetXChange
Arsenal vs. Liverpool
A derby of the day, according to many, maybe even bigger than the previous game. But we don’t believe that it might bring too much excitement. Arsenal plays defensive-minded football, protecting its goal primarily, while on the other side, Liverpool is in crisis, and they too have all sorts of problems in all the lines of the team. We would go with a low-efficient match in this case as well.
Pick: Under 2.5 goals 1.10 at BetXChange
Southampton vs. Burnley
The Saints were terrible before the international break having one very nasty period during which they suffered several pretty harsh defeats. Burney is playing ok for their standards, not losing too often, but not winning as well. This will be a very tactical match, with both sides hunting one another’s a mistake, which is why we propose, yet again, under 2.5 goals.
Pick: Under 2.5 goals 0.68 at BetXChange
Newcastle vs. Tottenham
With all due respect towards the Magpies, Tottenham simply needs to win this match and come back to the winning path, otherwise, this will be a major blow before starting the most important sequence of this championship. Newcastle is an OK team, but we don’t see them staying unbeaten.
Pick: Tottenham 0.57 at BetXChange
Aton Villa vs. Fulham
The match at Villa Park will be one of the most intense this weekend, with both teams wanting to win for so many reasons. Both sides have just one victory over the last five matches, not entering this clash with some high morale. In our opinion, a draw is the most realistic outcome here, and we will make it our pick.
Pick: Draw 2.30 at BetXChange
Manchester United vs. Brighton
We wouldn’t take too much of your time here, but just tell you to bet on United’s win. They have to beat the Seagulls if they want to play the Champions League next season.
Pick: United 0.61 at BetXChange
Everton vs. Crystal Palace
The Toffees have three straight losses in which they allowed two or more goals. On the other side, Palace has three clean sheets in the last four matches. We believe that the Eagles might get back home with at least one point, because they seem solid. It is our surprise of the round.
Pick: Palace or Draw 0.90 at BetXChange
Wolves vs. West Ham United
The game at Molineux will close this round. Both teams have shown inconsistency over the past few weeks, and that is why we won’t be focusing on the full-time result, but rather go with scoring. Moderate efficiency, 2 or 3 goals is the final choice here.
Pick: 2 or 3 goals 1.00 at BetXChange
