It's week 6 of the Premier League season and we have some great games in store this weekend. It's fair to say that this could be one of the most interesting Premier League seasons in years if things continue as they have. Here are five of my favorite plays for Saturday and Sunday's games, bet them individually or as a parlay for a bumper return.

Saturday Premier League Picks
1u - Man City -2 @ +275
- Man City have scored at least 3 goals in their past 6 away games at West Ham
Don't let that incredible comeback against Tottenham give you the impression this is a good West Ham team, it's not. Likewise, a slow start doesn't distract from the fact this Manchester City team has an incredible quantity of attacking talent. West Ham have been leaking goals for fun and they'll give Man City all the chances to score a hatful. Take City with a 2 goal handicap is my recommendation but the more conservative amongst you might want to lower that to a single goal, which is still above even money.
1u - Crystal Palace/Crystal Palace (HT/FT) @ +375
- Fulham have been losing at halftime and fulltime in 7 of their past 9 Premier League home games
Poor old Fulham, they've been so bad this year that we haven't even finished October and we're already certain that they'll be getting relegated, with one British bookmaker already paying out on that futures market. What's killed them is starting slow in games, when they're giving up early goals it's always going to make things difficult. They've shipped so many goals, with 2+ in 9 of their past 11 at home, while also failing to scoring in their past 3 home games in the league. I'm not a huge believer in this Palace team but the data suggests that this is the best bet and at +375 it's well worth a look.
1u - Liverpool -1 @ -140
- Liverpool have won 27 of their past 28 home games
Sheffield United are a long, long way from the team of last season. It really feels like they've been found out. Despite signing Rhian Brewster from Liverpool, they haven't managed to look dangerous going forward and in this league you won't ever win games if you're struggling to score. Liverpool may be missing Virgil van Dijk but they still have such a wide pool of talent that they'll walk through Sheffield United here.
Sunday Premier League Picks
1u - Everton @ +155
- Everton are top of the Premier League
Every single week this season I've backed Everton and you better believe that we're continuing that again. They may be missing James Rodriguez, and will be missing Richarlison to suspension, but they still have a strong starting eleven and anything over even money against Southampton, a difficult side to judge, is worth taking. We're going to ride this Everton train until the wheels fall off or the books start to price them correctly.
1u - Wolves -1 @ +235
- Wolves have kept a clean sheet in 7 of their last 9 games at home
Steve Bruce's Newcastle have looked devoid of ideas and might be sleepwalking into trouble if they continue to play as they have been. Wolves are first class defensively and I don't believe Newcastle can score today. The question is will Wolves score the 2 goals needed to land this handicap. I think that they will, despite Wolves having low scoring games of late, with 12 of their last 15 having under 2.5 goals in total. Wolves are simply too good for the Magpies and this game has 2-0 or 3-0 written all over it.
