English Premier League Picks

The Line: -- Over/Under:
Bournemouth vs Huddersfield: Huddersfield have found life over the past few weeks as the team has gotten big wins over the likes of Fulham and Wolves. Unfortunately for the Terriers, they let a big opportunity slip last weekend as they lost after leading at home against Brighton. Bournemouth, on the other hand, have had a tough few weeks as the Cherries have now lost 4 successive games. It is important to note that Bournemouth have only lost to elite teams and they have been playing well which is the reason they are 9th on the ladder. Bournemouth are much stronger than Huddersfield and I see them winning at home.
West Ham vs Cardiff West Ham had a poor start to the season but the Hammers are looking in very good form as they strive for a spot in the top 10. West Ham had a big win over the weekend as they beat Newcastle on the road. It was a dominant win for West Ham as they win 3-0. Cardiff City also won as they beat Wolves at home. This season, Wolves have looked far better at home than away from home. With this match being played at London Stadium, West Ham look to have too strong a squad for Cardiff City.
Brighton vs Crystal Palace Brighton will host Crystal Palace in a big derby match. Brighton have been struggling lately as they have been losing to the likes of Cardiff City. Over the weekend, Brighton narrowly beat Huddersfield and while the win was a positive, the team looked very poor and were lucky to get the points. Crystal Palace, in contrast, have looked in exceptional tough as they beat Burnley last weekend while getting a draw at Manchester United in the fixture prior. Things are looking good for Crystal Palace and I see them beat a struggling Brighton side.
Watford vs Manchester City: Manchester City have continued their dominance in the Premier League as they managed another victory over the weekend. Sergio Aguero has been playing exceptionally well as he has been well supported by his teammates. Watford, on the other hand, suffered another loss as they were beaten by Leicester City. Watford have only gained 1 point in the past 4 games and they are struggling against most teams. Manchester City should be far too strong for Watford, meaning I am picking the Sky Blues to win.
Fulham vs Leicester City: Fulham lost their last match against Chelsea although they beat Southampton the match prior meaning that the team will still have some confidence heading into this fixture. Mitrovic has been playing exceptionally well and he should cause Leicester City some problems. Leicester City have been playing very well and their system is bringing them much success. The Foxes beat Watford in their previous match and they are looking like a very good team. While Leicester have a stronger team, I am going to predict this fixture to end as a draw. Fulham look confident having recently beat Southampton and should be good enough to get a point.
Everton vs Newcastle: Everton were unlucky in their previous match as they were narrowly beaten by Liverpool. The team defended well and almost kept a clean sheet until Jordan Pickford made a huge error in injury time. While the loss would have disappointed Everton, their performance should give them confidence for this match. Newcastle were humiliated at home by West Ham and the Magpies played very poor football. Everton are the better team and they should win at home.
