EPL: Best Bets – Round 6 – Odds, Predictions, and Picks
Friday, September 20, 2019 at 4:49 PM (England)
Can Ashely Barnes and Teemu Pukki continue their impressive goal-scoring form? Will Newcastle and Brighton struggle to find the back of the net? Can Arsenal’s defense sort things out?
Let’s take a look at the best bets from the English Premier League Round 6.
Burnley vs. Norwich City – 9/21/19
After beating Manchester City, Norwich come into this one on the back off one of the greatest Premier League upsets of all-time. Burnley rescued a late draw in their previous match, which took them to within a point of Norwich. Both teams have relied heavily on one player to get their goals. Burnley have scored 6 league goals so far this season, and Ashley Barnes has netted 4 of those. On the other hand, Teemu Pukki has scored 6 of the Canaries’ 9 Premier League goals this term. You’d be foolish to bet against both of them scoring again this weekend, and the odds for them to do so are looking extremely appealing.
Pick: Ashley Barnes and Teemu Pukki Both to Score Anytime – 5.63
Newcastle United vs. Brighton & Hove Albion - 9/21/19
Newcastle and Brighton are among the lowest scoring teams in the Premier League this season. Both teams have scored at a rate of one goal per game or less, with Brighton scoring 5 and the Magpies scoring 4. Both sides have also kept just one clean sheet each from their opening five Premier League matches. It’s not expected to be a thriller when the two teams meet on Saturday, but considering their defensive problems, I can see both teams getting on the scoresheet. When you also consider the lack of goals being scored by both clubs, under 3.5 goals makes sense.
Pick: Both Teams to Score and Under 3.5 Goals – 2.97
Arsenal vs. Aston Villa - 9/22/19
Arsenal have endured a mixed start to the 2019/20 campaign. They have scored in each of their five league games but have also managed to keep just one clean sheet. The Gunners threw away a 2-0 lead against Watford in their previous match, but I’m expecting Aston Villa to put up less of a fight. Aston Villa are sitting just above the relegation zone having won just one of their opening five Premier League matches. Arsenal should have enough quality in attack to see off Aston Villa, but their shaky backline is also likely to concede. Arsenal to win and both teams to score is looking like the most likely outcome.
Pick: Arsenal to Win and Both Teams to Score – 2.39
