English Premier League will have only four matches this weekend, and after that, we have the international break due to the World Cup qualifiers. BetXChange will run over all these games, so stay with us to see valuable information.
Fulham vs. Leeds
The shorthanded round starts at Craven Cottage, with Fulham hosting the Peacocks. We witnessed the Cottagers playing a bit better than before, which is why they came to a few points away from the safe zone.
They lost the latest two at home, but the rivals were Tottenham and Manchester City. However, in between those events, Cottagers beat Liverpool on the road. Until the contest against Man City, eight of their consecutive matches were under 2.5 goals. Also, five in a row were with just one side netting.
Leeds, meanwhile, is in a tough position, not scoring in four of the past five games and having just one win in the recent six matches. On top of that, their best scorer Patrick Bamford is questionable for this event which would be a massive blow for Marcelo Bielsa.
Our pick here would be under 2.5 goals, as both sides have problems with scoring. The odds on that are 0.80.
Brighton vs. Newcastle
This is THE game for these two sides, who are direct rivals in the relegation battle. Whoever wins here would have much better chances to stay in the Premiership. Both sides have problems with injured players, but that won’t be an alibi in this case.
Brighton snapped a six-game winless streak with a win over Southampton at ST. Marry’s last week, 1-2, and has a certain swing at the moment. Three of their past four games saw over 2.5 goals, and both teams to score.
Newcastle didn’t win for five straight with the note that their latest three events were all draws. Now, check this data out. In the previous 10 games on the road, they scored in just two, noting that the Magpies have eight losses, a win, and a draw during that period.
We are going with the hosts here, as they look better at the moment, and once seeing Newcastle’s results on the road, anything but Brighton’s win would be a surprise. The odds are 0.65.
West Ham United vs. Arsenal
The London Derby attracts enormous attention because these two sides find themselves in interesting situations. West Ham is chasing the Champions League, while Arsenal sits in the middle of the standings.
The Hammers have six wins and a defeat in the previous seven home games, scoring two goals in all but one of those triumphs. They are a very good team, who received an upgrade with Jese Lingard’s arrival.
Arsenal is in good shape with five consecutive events in which they haven’t lost. During that time their attackers have been marvelous, scoring at least two goals in all but one match.
The final pick here would be both teams to score. As you can tell from seeing the respective results of these two clubs, they both score and concede goals, which is why we propose to listen to our suggestion. Right now the odds for that one are 0.70.
Aston Villa vs. Tottenham
The Villains are in an odd place, having mixed results in the last ten games- three wins, three draws, and four losses. But what is a constant in their matches is the low efficiency. The previous four games were under 2.5 goals; six of the last 10 saw both teams not to score.
On the other side, Tottenham finished its five-game winning streak with a loss against Arsenal in a game where they had a lead and controlled the situation. Mourinho’s side would allow just one goal during that victorious span before melting down against the Gunners.
Even though it is risky, our money is on the Spurs in this case. The risk is high, we agree on that, but the odds, 1.30, are just too good not to try it.
