Tottenham are without a win in the last 3 coming into the Christmas period. They will be looking to pick up all 3 points against a Stoke team that are struggling on the road this season. We suggest Tottenham here at $1.43
Newcastle are in fine form and unbeaten in their last 5 at home. The play host to high flying Arsenal who will be looking to maintain their push for the league title. We suggest a draw here at odds of $3.35
Everton are pushing for a top 4 position this season and are undefeated at home going into Christmas. Southampton are holding their own this season, but they will be up against it to pick up a point in this match. we suggest an Everton win at $1.73
Sunderland are bottom of the table at Christmas, and statistics show that relegation is on the horizon. If they are to produce a great escape, they will be looking to pick up 3 points in crucial games like this. Cardiff themselves are only 4 points outside the relegation zone. We suggest a Cardiff win at $2.10 as they take advantage of home support.
Man Utd’s form has been shaky at times this season, but they are putting together a run as they go into the Christmas period and their away form is currently the 3rd best in the league based on the last 6 games. They visit a Norwich team that are unbeaten in the last 3, but have only managed 2 points in the last 2 games. We suggest a Man Utd win here at $1.57
Man City have a tough match prior to this against Liverpool. Whatever the result of that match, they will be looking to take all 3 points against a Palace team that sit 3rd from bottom on Christmas day. We suggest Man City 5-0 at $13.00
Going into the Christmas period, Villa have lost their last 3 games. They face a Swansea side who are no pushovers and have picked up 2 wins and 1 draw on the road in the last 6. We suggest a Draw here at $3.25
West Ham will be looking to pick up some points in their 2 home games over Christmas. They have a good chance here as they face a freefalling West Brom team who have not won in 7. We suggest a West Ham win at $2.10
Liverpool face 2 tough away games over the Christmas period against 2 teams who are yet to taste defeat. Chelsea’s form has been up and down in recent weeks, but they remain hard to beat at the bridge, but if any team can break that, its the inform Liverpool and Luis Suarez. We suggest a Liverpool win at $3.35
Hull come into the Christmas period in good form at home and will want to take advantage of the good form. They face a fulham team that have been playing well in defeat, but remain 2nd from bottom. We suggest a Hull win here at $2.10
Man City’s home form this season is nothing less than phenomenal, scoring 35 and only conceding 5. They play host to top of the league Liverpool this week in the headline event of week 18. Liverpools away form has been questioned in recent weeks, but the 5-0 thrashing of Tottenham may have been a turning point. One thing that is guaranteed in this game, and thats goals. We suggest Man City at $1.70
Newcastle’s home form has been strong, with only 1 defeat they are looking more like the team from 2 seasons ago, and have gotten over their poor form last season. Whilst Stoke’s home form has been good this season, their away form needs massive improvement, with only 5 points gained on the road this season.With that in mind we suggest a Newcastle at $1.73.
Everton are looking strong contenders for a top 4 finish this season under Martinez. They remain undefeated at home, and have only lost 1 game all season to Manchester City, and are unbeaten in the last 10. Sunderland are currently bottom of the table and without a win on the road this season, only picking up 3 points in total. With Everton looking to maintain their top 4 dreams, we suggest a 2-0 Everton victory at odds of $7.00
Although Chelsea seem to have hit a bump in the road in recent weeks, their home form has kept them near the top of the league. They remain unbeaten at home this season, and even more impressively, in any game at home with The Special One in charge. Swansea have picked up 10 points on the road this season, exactly the same amount of points they have picked up at home as well. They have not shown as much flair as last season, and it would be a real shock if they were the first to inflict defeat on Chelsea at home. We suggest a 3-1 Chelsea win at $12.00
Cardiff won their last game at home, but this was against an out of form West Brom. Southampton are without a win the last 5 on the road and the last 6 overall. We are cautiously suggesting a Southampton at $2.25 simply because they have goals in them, which is more than can be said for Cardiff
Both these teams have parted with their managers in recent weeks and are yet to confirm permanent replacements. Tottenham have only managed 1 win in their last 6 home games, based on that form they are the worst team in the league at home at the moment. West Broms away form tells a similar story with only 1 win in the last 6. Tottenham will be buoyant after winning the weekend in a tough match at Southampton and will hope that is a turning point in their form. We suggest a Tottenham win at $1.53
Aston Villa have been struggling to score at home with only 6 goals all season. They will be looking to change all that this week as they face Crystal Palace. Palace have lost all but 1 game on the road so far this season and conceded no less than 14 goals on their travels. We fancy a Villa win here at odds of $1.85
Norwich have drawn their last 2 games and are unbeaten in the last three as they go into this match. Fulham have lost their last 2 games including a 4-2 defeat to Man City the weekend. Although the scoreline does not reflect it. After going down 2-0, Fulham come back to 2-2 and gave Man City a lot to think about. They have shown a lot of fight since the departure of Jol, and we fancy them to pick up a win here at odds of $3.25
West Ham have only picked up 5 of the last 18 points available at home and sit just 1 point outside the relegation zone. They play host to a very strong Arsenal outfit who are looking like real title contenders this year. We suggest Arsenal 3-0 here at $12.00
Hull have a good record at home and have only lost 1 game all season. They have conceded only 2 goals in the last 6 games and are making the KC Stadium a real fortress. Man Utd seem to be finding their feet under David Moyes now. They have won their last 2 home games and are unbeaten in the last 5 away from home scoring 13 in the last 6. The form figures say this is the best home defence against the best away attack over the last 6 games. With that in mind, we suggest the Draw at $3.75
Arsenal have won 6 of their 8 home games this season. They will be looking to bounce back from the thrashing they got off Man City last weekend. They face a visit from Chelsea in a big London showdown. With both teams chasing the title, and only 2 points between them, this match really is a key battle, and the headliner on this week schedule. Chelsea have not been great on the road of late, and Mourinho has been giving his team both barrels after defeats on the road to Stoke and Newcastle in recent weeks. We suggest Arsenal here at $2.35 to try and put some daylight between them and Chelsea.
Swansea have not quite clicked like they did last season, and they lost Nathan Dyer, a key player in the 1-1 draw with Norwich the weekend. That being said, their home form is strong, having only lost 2 matches so far to Arsenal and Man Utd. Everton are proving a strong force under Martinez this season. They have lost 1 game all season and are currently undefeated in the last 9. We fancy Everton at $2.30 to take all points this week.
Tottenham said goodbye to Andre Villas-Boas last week after being thrashed by Liverpool 5-0. They face Southampton this week, who have made St.Mary’s a fortress, only losing 1 game so far this season. We suggest a draw at $3.30 in a very close match.
Man Utd’s home form has not been as strong as many would have expected this season. They have won just 3 of their 8 games to date. They play host to West Ham this week, who have been very weak on the road with only 1 win so far this season. We fancy Man Utd at $1.33 to turn round their home form.
Fulham are struggling at the bottom of the league, and it does not come any harder then a visit from Man City. Although Man City have been struggling on the road, it really would be a massive upset if they dropped points at Craven Cottage this weekend. We suggest Man City 4-1 at $17.00
Sunderland have picked up just 1 point in their last 3 games and are without a win in the last 5. This week they play host to Norwich, who came from behind at home to Swansea to take a point. We fancy a draw here at $3.40
Palace put up a brave performance against Chelsea this week, and at time had them on the back foot, but they lost out in the end 2-1. Newcastle picked up a hard fought point at home against a tough Southampton team. Palace seem to be getting their act together now, winning their last 2 home games and are unbeaten in 3 at home. We suggest Crystal Palace at $2.90.
Stoke are proving a tough team to beat at home, only losing 1 match all season. They play host to Aston Villa this week who have been doing all their good work on their travels. We suggest a Draw here at $3.20
Managerless West Brom slipped to their 4th consecutive defeat the weekend, and are without a win in their last 6 games. They play host to Hull City who themselves have not won a game on the road in the last 5, only managing to pick up 1 win so far this season. This will be a close match, we fancy West Brom to pinch it at $1.91
Liverpool were simply amazing, thrashing Tottenham 5-0 at White Hart Lane and maintaining 2nd in the league in the process. Cardiff picked up a valuable 1-0 home win against West Brom the weekend which took them 4 points clear of the relegation zone. They face an uphill battle this weekend on the road at Anfield, against an in form Liverpool team who have only dropped 3 points at home all season. We suggest Liverpool 4-0 here at $10.00
Liverpool returned to 2nd place in the league last weekend. They have scored 9 goals in the last 2 games after losing to Hull, and are looking like a strong candidate for a top 4 finish again. Tottenham have not won at home in the league since October in a 1-0 win against Hull. We suggest a Liverpool win at $2.60
Man Utd have picked up just 2 points in the last 4 games, and any hope of maintaining the league title could be over if they do not win this week. They play Villa this weekend,, and their home form is less than desirable with inky 7 points gained at Villa Park this season. We suggest Man Utd here at $1.67 to get their season back on track.
Norwich bounced back well the weekend with an impressive 2-0 win at the Hawthorns. They will be hoping to take that form into their game this weekend against Swansea, who are not setting the world alight at the moment, but are quietly maintaining a mid table position. We suggest a draw here at $3.30
Hull lost the weekend, but that was to top of the table Arsenal, so it was always going to be an uphill task. They are being visited by Stoke this weekend who’s home and away records are very black and white, unbeaten in last 5 at home, without a win in the last 5 on the road. With that record in mind, we suggest Hull at $2.25
Chelsea boss Mourinho was less than impressed with the 3-2 defeat to Stoke the weekend, and we can almost guarantee that they will be feeling his wrath this week in training. They play host to a resurgent Crystal Palace this weekend, who have won their last 2 games after a very poor start, however, they will need to be right at the top of their game, and it would be a massive shock if it was Palace that brought an end the impressive record of 0 home losses under Mourinho. We suggest Chelsea at $1.20
Newcastle play host to Southampton this week. They have won their last 3 home games, and are also on a high after beating Man Utd 1-0 at Old Trafford for the first time in 41 years. Southampton however have one of the best defensive records in the league this season. They come from behind the weekend to take a point against the other Manchester force, Man City. This is going to be a close game, we suggest the Draw at $3.40
West Brom sit 1 place above Cardiff in the league with only 1 point between them, so they will be looking to stretch that gap and put some space between them, however they are without a win in the last 4 away games. Cardiff’s Home form is very similar and they too have only managed to accumulate 10 points at home, the same as West Brom have on their travels. We suggest West Brom at $3.00 in a tight game.
Everton are a tough team to beat this season. hey have only lost 1 game all season and remain undefeated at home. They have taken points off Man Utd and Arsenal in the last week, and come into this match on a real high. Fulham’s season remains rocky and they currently find themselves in the bottom 3 of the league. They picked up a valuable 3 points the weekend against Aston Villa, but this is a much tougher ask this weekend. We suggest Everton at $1.35.
This is a match that can already be classed as a relegation survival match. Sunderland are rock bottom of the table as their poor form continues. They have not managed to get a win on the road this season, and are face with a tough trip to the capital to play West Ham, who themselves sit 1 place above the relegation zone, only on goal difference. We suggest West Ham at $1.91
Both these teams dropped points the weekend and will be looking to take all three in this weekends clash of the titans. Man City's home form is phenomenal so far this season having scored 29 goals, and only conceded 2 and remain undefeated. This will be a tough ask though against a strong Arsenal outfit who are flying high at the top of the table. We predict a Man City win at $1.85
Arsenal are flying high at the top of the table with a 4 point cushion over the chasing pack. They play host to Everton this weekend who stunned their old boss David Moyes with a late winner in a 1-0 win over Man Utd. This is going to be a tough battle. we suggest the Draw at $3.75
Fulham let a 1-0 lead slip late on in a 2-1 defeat to Tottenham. Aston Villa visited Southampton and picked up a valuable win in a great 3-2 win. We suggest Villa to keep up the good form and win this at $2.60
Sunderland are playing well under new manager Poyet and pushed Chelsea all they way midweek in a thrilling 4-3 defeat. Tottenham managed a win at London rivals Fulham, coming from 1-0 down to win 2-1. We think they may prove to tough for Sunderland. We suggest Tottenham at $1.83
West Brom nearly managed a great comeback against Man City in the week, but it was not meant to be and they lost 3-2. Norwich faced Liverpool, and their nemesis Suarez stepped up and scored 4, his 3rd hat trick against them in a 5-1 defeat. West Brom will see this as an important 3 points which they need to win. We suggest West Brom at $1.91
Man City managed to hold on for a 3-2 win after going 3-0 up at West Brom, whilst Southampton lost to the same scoreline against Aston Villa in the week. Man City are vulnerable on the road, and Southampton have all the goods to exploit that, We suggest the Draw at $3.60
Palace picked up their 3rd win of the season in the week against West Ham which took them off the bottom of the table. They will be looking to make this back to back home wins when they play host to Cardiff, who picked up a point away at Stoke. We suggest Palace at $2.60
Chelsea won a 4-3 thriller in the week against Sunderland, whilst Stoke could only manage a draw to Cardiff at home. Stoke do not concede many at home, but if Hazard is in the same form he showed against Sunderland, he could well cause problems for the Stoke defence. We suggest Chelsea at $1.67
Liverpool got back to winning ways in the week in some style with a 5-1 win over Norwich, 4 of which came from Suarez. We fully expect him to keep up his recent rush of goals against West Ham who went down 1-0 to bottom of the table Palace. We suggest Liverpool 3-0 at $8.00
Man Utd showed their vulnerability again in the week, losing 1-0 to a late Everton goal as they lost more ground on the title leaders. Newcastle lost on the road at Swansea by 3 goals to nil. Man Utd will be looking to bounce back from their midweek defeat. We suggest Man Utd at $1.45
Swansea were impressive in the week, beating Newcastle comfortably 3-0 at home. Hull hosted Arsenal, and after a glorious win at the weekend over Liverpool, they were brought back to earth by top of the table Arsenal in a 2-0 defeat. Swansea are looking good at home and are unbeaten in the last 4. We suggest Swansea at $1.75
