EPL Thursday Morning Best Bets - Matchweek 15
We have a $7 midweek four-leg multi coming your way!
Burnley v Liverpool
This should be a procession.
Burnley have just two points from their last seven matches and, in my opinion, are the worst side in the league. Sean Dyche looks totally out of ideas, and their once formidable defence has now conceded 29 times in just 14 matches.
Nine of their seven defeats have been by a margin of two goals or more, so therefore I’m backing a Liverpool -1 victory. It will probably be more, but because this is a multi, I’m not going to take an undue risk.
Liverpool hasn’t quite been their deadly, free-scoring selves from last season, but they still look very strong, and I fear they’ll eat Burnley alive.
Everton v Newcastle
This is another result I’m confident about. Everton has won 9 of their last 12 Premier League matches against Newcastle at Goodison Park, and Wednesday’s clash will go a similar way.
The Toffees look pretty formidable at home – winning five of their seven this season – and they are an excellent prospect to finish above Manchester United in 6th.
Newcastle’s run of three straight victories ended at St. James’ Park against West Ham on Saturday, and I simply cannot see past them succumbing once again.
Simply put, Everton is a much better side than Newcastle, and they have the record to back it up.
Wolves v Chelsea
With just one point from their last six matches – including three straight home defeats – there is no better time to play Wolves.
Nuno will be without the suspended Rúben Neves on Wednesday - breaking up his ever-present partnership with João Moutinho in central-midfield - which is another problem the Wolves manager could do without.
At just over 3/4, there’s simply no looking past a Chelsea victory. Barring their defeat against Spurs a fortnight ago, Maurizio Sarri’s side has been very impressive on the road, making this decision an easy one.
Spurs v Southampton
I don’t care Spurs lost the North London Derby (and their heads), they are going to beat managerless Southampton.
I also don’t care that Southampton drew 2-2 with Manchester United because Spurs are a much better side, and the Saints have already been pummelled by Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City this season.
Caretaker manager Kelvin Davis might be a miracle worker – though something tells me he won’t be - so I’m backing Spurs to cruise to victory.
