EPL: Best Bets – Round 14 – Odds, Predictions, and Picks
Thursday, November 28, 2019 at 12:06 AM (England)
It’s going to take something special to stop Liverpool from running away at the top of table, but Leicester can keep the pressure on the league-leaders with victory over struggling Everton on Sunday. Southampton and Watford face off in a bottom-of-the-table clash, while Spurs will be looking to make it three wins from three under Jose Mourinho. Let’s check out this week’s best bets for the English Premier League.
Southampton vs. Watford – 11/30/19
The bottom two teams in the Premier League go head-to-head on Saturday as Southampton host Watford. The Hornets are bottom on eight points, while Saints are one place above having claimed one point more. Southampton have the worst defensive record in the division and have conceded 31 goals in 13 games. Watford have conceded 26, so I would be very surprised if both teams don’t get on the scoresheet this weekend. Both teams to score seems like the most logical bet for this game.
Pick: Both Teams to Score – 1.65
Tottenham Hotspur vs. Bournemouth – 11/30/19
Spurs have won both their games under new boss Jose Mourinho. They beat West Ham 3-2 in the league before coming from behind to eventually overcome Olympiacos in the Champions League. Bournemouth have lost their last two games and have only won one of their last five. I expect Tottenham to continue their winning run on Saturday, but given that they have conceded twice in each of their last two games, I can see Bournemouth scoring. Spurs should claim all three points, but it might not be too comfortable.
Pick: Tottenham Hotspur to Win and Both Teams to Score – 2.54
Leicester City vs. Everton – 12/1/19
Leicester have the best defensive record in the Premier League this season. Brendan Rodger’s side have only conceded eight goals in 2019/20, and they have looked extremely strong at the back. While Leicester are flying high in second place, Everton are down in sixteenth. The Toffees are enduring a wretched campaign which has seen them conceded 20 goals and only score 13. Given the contrasting goal-scoring records of the two teams, I think Leicester will beat Everton without conceding.
Pick: Leicester City to Win and Keep a Clean Sheet – 2.72
