Stay tuned to see previews and picks for this EPL round.
Aston Villa VS Arsenal
Aston Villa plays solid football, with plenty of goals on both ends. Only one of the past five Aston Villa games saw under 2.5 goals and both teams netting. They are coming into this event following back-to-back losses against Leicester, 2-4, and Man City, 3-1.
Arsenal is in terrible shape, having three defeats and one draw in the past four. The Gunners failed to score in two of those events, and everything started with a loss against Manchester City in the FA Cup, 1-0, and then continued against Everton, 1-0, before a draw against Brentford, 1-1, and Wednesday’s loss vs. City, 1-3.
The best pick here would be for both teams to score because both crews have problems maintaining the consistency of their defenses. The odds are solid, and we need to take this pick.

Nottingham Forest VS Manchester City
The team from City Ground ended the last round with a loss in Fulham, 2-0, the third one in the past four, with the only win coming at home to Leeds, 1-0. Previously, Forest lost in two events against Manchester United in the EFL, 0-3 and 2-0 at Old Trafford.
City shifted into a higher gear, winning five of the past six events, with the latest one against Arsenal at the Emirates, 3-1, when they melted the Gunners’ edge in the standings. This team is in perfect shape right now and now has a massive swing.
There is no other logical pick here but to bet on the guests to win.

Tottenham VS West Ham
The Spurs lost in Milan after a ridiculous goal conceded in the contest’s early stage, and they couldn’t come back after that. We need to say that the Spurs didn’t deserve to lose, playing much better than Rossoneri. This was the fourth event in the past five they played with just one side netting.
The Hammers didn’t lose in the past four games, winning two and posting two draws after that. After beating Everton, 2-0, and Derby on the road in the FA Cup, they played 1-1 in Newcastle and at home to Chelsea. Seven of the past eight events this unit played were under 2.5 scores, which tells a lot about their mentality.
Our suggestion here would be under 2.5 scores because Tottenham can’t afford to be reckless now, and Conte will probably set up a defensive-minded game plan. On the other side, West Ham will be rough, so one side netting would be just fine here.
Pick: Both teams not to score 1/1 at BetXchange
Manchester United VS Leicester
The Red Devils are hyped following 2-2 at Camp Nou. They had a chance to beat Barca but missed it, yet still, we need to add that United looked just fine in Spain. This was the seventh event in a row in which they haven’t lost, with five victories and two draws.
The Foxes are on the rise, with three consecutive triumphs, in which they’ve beaten Walsall in the FA Cup, 0-1, then Aston Villa on the road, 1-4, and at last Tottenham last weekend at Kings Power stadium, 4-1.
There isn’t a better game for both teams to score in the entire round than this one. United’s defense is breakable, while Leicester’s has been pretty poor since the year started. That’s why we simply have to take both teams to net.
