EPL: Best Bets – Round 16 – Odds, Predictions, and Picks
Saturday, December 7, 2019 at 12:21 AM (England)
Can Bournemouth put an end to Liverpool’s remarkable unbeaten march towards their first ever Premier League title? Will Burnley upset the odds at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium? Who will come out on top when Norwich host Sheffield United?
Here are this week’s best bets from the English Premier League.
Bournemouth vs. Liverpool – 12/7/19
The Cherries come into this game on the back of four straight defeats, so I’m pretty sure Liverpool will win this one. The Reds are unbeaten in the league this season – winning 14 and drawing 1 of their 15 games so far. However, Jurgen Klopp’s side have conceded more goals than they would’ve liked. Liverpool have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 13 matches in all competitions, so Bournemouth could snatch a goal. For that reason, a Liverpool win and both teams to score make sense here.
Pick: Liverpool to Win and Both Teams to Score – 2.49
Tottenham Hotspur vs. Burnley – 12/7/19
I’m going for another win and both teams to score when Spurs face Burnley. Tottenham have conceded exactly two goals in each of their four games since Jose Mourinho took charge, but have managed to win three of those games. On the other hand, Burnley have lost their last two games and have also lost five of their last seven. Given Tottenham’s recent poor defensive record, I’m backing both teams to get on the scoresheet on Saturday. Still, Spurs should have more than enough quality to come away with all three points.
Pick: Tottenham Hotspur to Win and Both Teams to Score – 2.68
Norwich City vs. Sheffield United – 12/8/19
Norwich are second from bottom having won just three of their 15 league games this season, while Sheff Utd have slipped to ninth after failing to win any of their previous four matches. With that being said, the Blades have scored in six of their last seven games. Despite Norwich’s troubles, the Canaries have scored in four of their last six. Both teams have endured some defensive problems in recent weeks, and neither side has kept a clean sheet in their last two matches. All the signs are pointing towards both teams scoring on Sunday, but it's tough to predict who will come out on top.
Pick: Both Teams to Score – 1.60
