There are 4 English Premier League matches taking place on Sunday and we suggest a bet in each.
FULHAM v EVERTON – Click here to bet
Fulham are off to a slow start in their return to the EPL and have only won 1 of their 8 matches and currently sit 17th on the log. They did win their last home game 2-0 against West Brom and they had lost their previous 3 home matches.
Everton have slipped badly after a strong start and have only taken 1 point out of the last 12 they have played for and are coming off 3 successive losses including a 3-1 defeat at home to Manchester United last time out. Their last 2 away matches have been defeats at Newcastle and Southampton.
Suggested Bet: Everton win at 9/10
Fulham’s win over West Brom is not that notable and previous defeats to Palace, Villa and Arsenal had me thinking that Everton will be too strong here.
SHEFFIELD UNITED v WEST HAM - Click here to bet
Sheffield United are bottom of the table with just 1 point from their opening 8 matches. Last time out they were hammered 4-1 away at Chelsea although their last home game was an honourable 1-0 defeat to Manchester City. In 4 home matches they have scored just once and conceded 5.
West Ham are 12th on the table and are coming off a 1-0 home win over Fulham. Their last away game was a 2-1 defeat at Liverpool and overall on the road they have won 1 and drawn 1 of their 4 starts scoring 8 and conceding 7.
Sheffield United 41/20
West Ham 29/20
Suggested Bet: West Ham win at 29/20
West Ham impressed me at times this season whereas I think Sheffield United are in for a long hard slog for survival and I am backing the Hammers to collect all 3 points here.
LEEDS v ARSENAL – Click here to bet
Leeds have put in some promising performances, but they are 15th on the table with 3 wins in their opening 8 matches and they are coming off back-to-back defeats, a 4-1 loss to Crystal Palace away and a 4-1 loss to Leicester at home. Leeds matches this season have averaged just under 4 goals each.
Arsenal are 11th on the table and have lost 3 of their last 4 games including a 3-0 home defeat to Aston Villa last time out. On the road they did beat Manchester United 1-0 in their last away start and they have won 2 and lost 2 of their 4 away matches this season.
Suggested Bet: Over 3.5 goals at 15/10.
This looks like it could be a high scoring fixture and 50% of Leeds matches this season has seen 4 goals or more scored.
LIVERPOOL v LEICESTER – Click here to bet
Liverpool are 3rd on the table, 1 point behind leaders Leicester after 8 matches. They drew 1-1 away with Manchester City last time out, but prior to that had home wins over West Ham and Sheffield United both by 2 goals to 1 margins and they have won all 4 of their home matches this season.
Leicester are coming off 3 successive victories including a home win over Wolves last time out and away wins over Leeds and Arsenal. They have a 100% record on the road after 4 games scoring 13 goals and conceding just 3.
Suggested Bet: Liverpool win at 19/20.
I considered venturing into the goal markets for this one, but at the end of the day I am going to keep it simple and will look at Liverpool to keep their 100% home record intact at the expense of Leicester’s 100% away record.
