English Premier League Soccer Picks, Odds, and Predictions 5/12/19 Free EPL Picks

Watford vs West Ham: Watford have had a strong 2019 season and the team will look forward to finishing the league on a high. Watford are still in the FA Cup and the team will be desperate to ensure they are in winning form prior to arriving at Wembley. West Ham, on the other hand, have also had a good season and they showed their ability last weekend. West Ham defeated Southampton 3-0. Both teams are talented, but I see Watford winning. The Hornets are at home and I see them giving their fans a home win.

Manchester United vs Cardiff City: It has been a very poor few weeks for both clubs. Cardiff City lost to Crystal Palace which secured their relegation. Manchester United, on the other hand, failed to beat Huddersfield Town. The Red Devils are not able to finish in the top 4 and the club looks to be in a very poor situation. As far as this match is concerned, I am going to pick Manchester United to win. While United have been poor, Cardiff have been worse.

Southampton vs Huddersfield: Southampton are safe from relegation. The Saints were in trouble for a long time, but the team pulled some vital wins to gain a spot in safety. That being said, Southampton lost their last match as they were beaten by West Ham. Huddersfield managed a draw in their last outing which was against Manchester United. Huddersfield are set to be relegated and the team morale is low. Neither side have been good this season. That being said, I see Southampton winning since they have the advantage of playing at home.

Leicester City vs Chelsea: Chelsea won in the Europa League and are in a good situation. The Blues will compete for the Europa League title and have secured a spot in the top 4. Winning this match will ensure a spot in the top 3 which will allow the team automatic entry into the group stages of the Champions League. Chelsea won their last Premier League match as they defeated Watford. Leicester City lost their last match as they were beaten 1-0 by Manchester City. The Foxes are safe from relegation and the result from this fixture will not impact the side greatly. With that in mind, I am going to pick Chelsea to win this match. Chelsea have the stronger team and have more to gain from winning this fixture.

Fulham vs Newcastle: Fulham have been relegated and the Cottagers have been playing poorly for a long time. The Fulham defence has been terrible and this season has been an absolute disaster for the club. To make matters worse, the relegation may impact Fulham greatly in a financial context as the club spent big in the transfer window. Newcastle, on the other hand, have had a very solid season as they have managed to avoid relegation with a very small budget. As the season draws to an end, Newcastle look the better side and I am picking them to win.

Crystal Palace vs Bournemouth: Both Crystal Palace and Bournemouth have had solid seasons and are safe from relegation. Palace won their previous match as they defeated Cardiff City. Bournemouth also won their last outing as they defeated Tottenham. These two teams are very evenly matched when talent is concerned. Having said that, I am going to pick Crystal Palace to win this match. Palace are playing at home and the team has been consistently winning in recent weeks.

Burnley vs Arsenal: Arsenal must win if they wish to keep the top 4 dream alive. The Gunners have been poor in the Premier League, but the team showed great skill midweek as they beat Valencia away from home in the Europa League. Burnley have been losing consistently and the team have had a very poor season. In their last outing, Burnley were beaten by Everton. Arsenal have the stronger side and I see them winning this match away from home.
