English Premier League Picks

The Line: -- Over/Under:
West Ham vs Fulham: Fulham have been very poor this season and they remain amongst the bottom teams in the competition. In their last outing, Fulham were beaten by Manchester United at home. On the other side of the coin, West Ham played well to get a draw against Crystal Palace away from home. Fulham and West Ham have had contrasting seasons with West Ham having the stronger time. West Ham have better form and are playing at home so I am going to pick the Hammers to win this game.
Cardiff City vs Watford: Cardiff City have been very strong at home this season and it is the only reason they still have a chance of avoiding relegation. Cardiff City had a big win last weekend as they beat Southampton and the team will be high on confidence as they enter this clash. Watford also won their previous game as they beat Everton at home. Looking at the two teams, Watford have the stronger squad. That being said, with Cardiff City being the home team, I think this match will end as a draw.
Burnley vs Tottenham: Burnley had a big win in their previous game as they beat Brighton away from home. The win moves Burnley closer to safety and the mood will be good for the team as they enter this match. That being said, Tottenham are a much stronger team and they showed that in the Champions League as they beat Borussia Dortmund 3-0. While it is fair to say that Burnley are in good form, I see them losing this match. Tottenham should be too strong so I see them getting all the points from this game.
Bournemouth vs Wolves: Bournemouth have had a poor few weeks as they were beaten by Cardiff City and Liverpool in their last 2 games. It has been a drop of form and it seems like the strikers don’t know how to find the goal. The defence has also been very bad as they have conceded 5 goals in their last 180 minutes of football. Wolves, on the other hand, have looked very impressive in the past few months and they have not lost in their last 4 games. With the contrast in form, I see Wolves winning this game away from home.
Newcastle United vs Huddersfield: Huddersfield have been the worst team in the league and it looks like they will be in the League Championship next season. In their last outing, Huddersfield were defeated by Arsenal at home. It was a very poor game as the team lacked any heart. On the other side of the coin, Newcastle have been fighting hard over the past few weeks and they managed to get a draw in their last outing. At home, Newcastle have been playing decent football and I see them beating Huddersfield Town.
Leicester City vs Crystal Palace: Crystal Palace had a decent result last weekend as they got a draw against West Ham United. The Eagles have had a solid season and they are in no real danger of relegation. Leicester City are in a similar situation as they are also well clear of the relegation zone. Looking at the two teams, they are very evenly matched but with this match being played at the King Power Stadium, I am going to pick Leicester City to win.
