EPL: Best Bets – Round 20 – Odds, Predictions, and Picks
Saturday, December 28, 2019 at 12:00 AM (England)
The games come thick and fast in this busy period of the season for English soccer. With all 20 EPL teams playing two games in the space of 48 hours, there are plenty of betting opportunities for us to take advantage of.
Here are the best bets for the upcoming round of fixtures.
Brighton & Hove Albion vs. Bournemouth – 12/28/19
Brighton host Bournemouth in the Premier League’s early kick-off on Saturday. The Seagulls are currently 15th in the table, while Bournemouth one place below – level on 20 points. Both sides have a record of W5/D5/L9 in the league this season, and they also share the same goal difference (-6). Due to their home advantage, Brighton are the favorites in this tie. However, given the similarities between the two teams, all the signs are pointing towards a draw. There is very little to separate Brighton and Bournemouth right now.
Pick: The Draw – 3.75
Southampton vs. Crystal Palace – 12/28/19
After a sticky start to the 2019/20 campaign, Southampton appear to have turned a corner. They have only lost two of their seven league games and have won four in that time. Saints claimed an impressive 2-0 draw at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea in the previous round. Crystal Palace have also been doing well, but they have seriously struggled to score goals this season. Only Watford have scored fewer goals than the Eagles in the top-flight this term. I’m backing Saints to continue their promising run. The home win is at 1.91, but add the under 3.5 goals market into the mix to boost your odds.
Pick: Southampton to Win and Under 3.5 Goals – 2.47
Arsenal vs. Chelsea – 12/29/19
Arsenal and Chelsea have both been very inconsistent this season. Still, Chelsea find themselves in 4th place, while Arsenal are languishing down in 11th. Neither side has found it hard to score goals so far this term, but both teams have struggled defensively. For that reason, both teams to score seems like the best bet for this matchup. Chelsea are the slight favorites, but given the unpredictability of the two teams, it’s difficult to pick a winner here.
Pick: Both Teams to Score – 1.50
