English Premier League Picks
|Date & Time||Monday February 11, 2019, 12:00 AM (EST)|
The Line: -- Over/Under:
Watford vs Everton: Everton have been in very poor form and they lost another match midweek as they were beaten by Manchester City at home. The Toffees have only won once in their past 5 games and the team is looking in very poor shape as they head into the backend of the season. Watford, on the other hand, are looking in good form. The Hornets have only lost once since the start of the year and that is a very good sign for the team. Watford are at home and playing better soccer so I see them winning this game.
Huddersfield vs Arsenal: Huddersfield have continued their struggles and are still at the bottom of the ladder. In their last outing, the Terriers were beaten 5-0 by Chelsea and it showed that the team are out of their depths in the Premier League. Arsenal will pose a similar challenge to Huddersfield. Arsenal lost their last game but considering it was against Manchester City, it was not a terrible result. Arsenal are playing good football this season and are pushing hard for the top 4. Arsenal are much stronger than Huddersfield and I see them winning away from home.
Southampton vs Cardiff City: Both of these teams are fighting for survival so this is a very big game for the futures of both clubs. The losing team will very likely be in the relegation zone. Cardiff City had a big win last weekend as they beat Bournemouth at home. Southampton, on the other hand, suffered a frustrating draw as they failed to beat Burnley. I am going to pick Southampton to win this match since Cardiff City have been struggling away from home this season while the Saints seem to have found some good form recently. At home, Southampton should beat Cardiff City.
Crystal Palace vs West Ham: The Hammers had a big result last weekend as they prevented Liverpool from getting all 3 points. The Hammers have 32 points are very close to the 40 point mark which usually means safety. It has been a good season for West Ham although much of their season has been at home which could be a potential problem for this game. Crystal Palace won their previous game as they eased past Fulham. Neither team are in direct danger of relegation but both will want to win to ensure they are closer to guaranteed safety. West Ham are playing better football but Crystal Palace are at home. With that in mind, I am going to predict a draw.
Tottenham vs Leicester City: Tottenham beat Newcastle United at home last weekend. With teams like Chelsea and Arsenal dropping points, Tottenham have safety in 3rd position and things are looking good for the North London club. Leicester have also been in good form although they lost their last game as they were beaten by Manchester United. When comparing these two teams, Tottenham have a much better set of players and are more consistent in providing the team with wins. Tottenham are at home for this game and I see them winning.
Wolves vs Newcastle United: Wolves have been playing some exceptional football this season and they won again last weekend as they beat Everton. The team is well balanced and they midfield for Wolverhampton is amongst the best in the league. Newcastle United, on the other hand, are struggling and they lost last weekend against Tottenham. Wolverhampton have a stronger side when compared to Newcastle United. Furthermore, Wolves are playing better football and will be at home for this fixture. I see Wolves winning this match with some ease.
Brighton vs Burnley: Brighton were good in their last game as they managed to get a 0-0 draw against Watford. Burnley were also impressive as they fought very hard to manage to get a point against Southampton. Both these teams are heavily reliant on playing at home and that is the major factor in this match. Brighton are playing at home I see them winning this game.
