EPL Matchday 23 Betting Picks

Fulham vs West Ham United

Craven Cottage, Saturday 12:30pm ET

Fulham are going through a horror stretch in the Premier League where they are now 10 matches without a win. Last time out they were unable to find the back of the net in a two goal loss against Everton, which saw them slip to eight points behind the safety of 17th spot on the table.

West Ham United are anything but relegation battlers this campaign as it’s been a very successful one for them thus far. The Hammers were too good for Aston Villa in their midweek outing, which made it five league wins from their past six fixtures. West Ham are now in fifth spot on the table and are daring to dream.

The Hammers are by far the better team in this fixture, which makes it confusing to see them at still around +100 to win. They’ve definitely been disrespected by the bookies on this occasion and should be far shorter odds in the head-to-head market. We’re more than happy to be on them to get the job done against Fulham.

Liverpool vs Manchester City

Anfield, Sunday 11:30pm ET

Liverpool started off their title defense in great style and sat atop of the EPL table for the first dozen or so rounds; however, they’ve since gone way off the boil and have now won just twice from their past eight league fixtures. The Reds title chances are slipping away quickly and they wouldn’t want to drop too many more points if they’re to threaten.

Manchester City have taken advantage of the slip-ups from the other title fancies of late, winning a whopping nine matches on the spin to surge three points clear at the top of the table. Amazingly, the Citizens have conceded just once during this winning streak, which has seen their title shorten astronomically.

It’s crazy to see Liverpool at odds of over +250 to win on their home deck, but if anything, it’s actually flattering considering their form at the moment. Here, they come up against the most in-form team in the world of soccer. We have Manchester City giving Liverpool the business at Anfield this weekend.

Leeds United vs Crystal Palace

Elland Road, Monday 3pm ET

Leeds United have had a relatively successful season back in England’s top flight. They’ve managed to secure maximum points in nine of their 21 matches, which has them sitting in 11th spot on the table. The one knock on Leeds this season is their vulnerability at the back, but that’s simply a by-product of how attacking their gameplay is.

Crystal Palace have enjoyed a comfortable season in the EPL and certainly won’t be in any sort of relegation battle at seasons’ end. They’re coming off back-to-back league wins to increase their win tally to eight on the season, which is good enough for 13th spot on the table.

These clubs met earlier this season and it was Crystal Palace who dominated from start to finish in a 4-1 victory. They lost their way a little bit after that match but have hit their straps again with consecutive league wins leading into this fixture, which makes them a very dangerous proposition. At around 4x your money, taking Palace to cause an upset looks like the best value play of the round.
