The Premier League season rolls on, with a huge weekend of football on Matchday 28. This weekend’s slate is highlighted by a top four Manchester Derby, which is set to be a huge clash. We’ve got you covered with our best picks for Matchday 28!
EPL Matchday 28 Betting Picks
Brighton & Hove Albion vs Liverpool
Saturday 7:30am ET, Falmer Stadium
Brighton and Liverpool will get Matchday 28 underway on Saturday morning as the Reds look to close the gap to Manchester City at the top of the table. They are currently six points behind the EPL leaders, but have a game in hand, so if they can keep winning, they should put themselves in a position to make a late run at the title.
Liverpool have won their last eight games on the trot dating back to a 2-2 draw with Chelsea in January. Interestingly, Brighton is one team that Liverpool have not had a lot of success against lately. They are 0-2-1 in their last three games against the Seaguls, having played out a disappointing 2-2 draw in their last match in October.
Liverpol start as heavy favoruites here and it’s hard to bet against them given how badly they need to win to stay in contention for the title. Back them to get the job done on the road.
Manchester United vs Tottenham
Saturday 12.30pm ET, Old Trafford
The game of the round sees the Red Devils taking on the Hotspur from 12.30pm on Saturday afternoon. Manchester United and Tottenham are both firmly entrenched in the battle for the top four, making this an important game.
Manchester United start as strong favourites at home but will be without their star striker Cristiano Ronaldo, who is battling injury. The Red Devils have won their last two on the trot against Tottenham with a combined goal aggregate of 6-1.
I think the Spurs are a solid chance here though, especially with Ronaldo set to be on the sidelines. They are coming off two dominant wins over Everton and Leeds in their last two Premier League games, racking up 9 goals and conceding zero in the process.
Arsenal vs Leicester City
Sunday 12:30pm ET, Emirates Stadium
Another great game sees the Gunners squaring off against the Foxes on Sunday afternoon. Arsenal currently sit inside the top four, but have just a one point lead over Manchester United with another two teams in West Ham and Tottenham closely following. They need to keep their foot on the pedal if they want to secure a place in the Champions League next season.
They face a Foxes outfit that has won their last two games in a row against Burnley and Leeds. Leicester sit in 12th place with a 9-6-10 record. They have lost their last two games to Arsenal and have won just one of their last five.
Back the Gunners to win here and remain in the top four. They have some tougher matchups in the weeks to come which could jeapordise their Champions League chances, but this clash shouldn’t.
