Premier League: Gameweek 10 Betting Preview and Picks

Just when we thought that Manchester United was a surefire lock for a top-two spot in the league, they go ahead and lose to Huddersfield. When we were to believe Liverpool was Tottenham’s kryptonite, Spurs crush them at Wembley.

Who says the Premier League is predictable?

Andrew Avery and Rob Trites sure hope it is as they return this week with their favorite sides, totals and props on the board for Gameweek 10.

Sides

Andrew: Brighton (+215)

Don’t look now, but the three promoted sides in the 2017-18 Premier League are all residing in the top 12 and it’s very deserved.

Each of Newcastle (seventh), Huddersfield (11th) and Brighton (12th) has played exceptionally well in spots this season and you shouldn’t be surprised if all three remain in the league at season’s end.

Chris Hughton’s Brighton side is coming off a 3-0 pounding of host West Ham last time out and I love the value at home to defeat Southampton on Sunday.

Southampton is a tough side to break down and they were able to grind out a win against an equally tough West Brom last weekend. But Hughton’s men have got to be buzzing after thrashing the Hammers.

The Amex is a tough location for any Prem club to get points and I think the Saints could very well have their hands full Sunday. Love the value here.

Rob: Man United vS Tottenham DRAW (+220)

A battle for second place ensues on Saturday when Tottenham visits Man United and it’s looking like Spurs might be without the red-hot Harry Kane. That’s – obviously – not great for Spurs but it doesn’t mean they’ll be outmatched.

I expect United to play a similar style to the one that resulted in a cagey 0-0 draw against Liverpool two weeks ago that many were disappointed by. Jose Mourinho has this innate ability to suck the fun out of high-profile fixtures and I’m afraid the EPL Gameweek 10 icebreaker might be a snoozer.

With no Kane in the lineup, Tottenham won’t be able to offer as much going forward. With a healthy backline, though, and Moussa Dembele returning to the starting 11, it’s highly unlikely they concede much to a United side that’s scored just one goal in its last two Premier League matches.

Both managers would be thrilled to come away from this one with a point each.

Totals

Andrew: Arsenal vs Swansea OVER 3.5 (+110)

Gunners fans the world over were delighted with the way the visiting side looked in a 5-2 drubbing of Everton last weekend. And deservedly so. The trio of Mesut Ozil, Andre Lacazette and Alexis Sanchez were silky smooth in buildup and lethal in finishing.

The rest of the league better take notice.

There are still question marks at the back for Arsenal so pair that with the way this team is playing with the ball and I like the OVER here even at 3.5.

Rob: Leicester City vs Everton OVer 2.5 (-105)

If you thought Everton was an unorganized club under Ronald Koeman, just wait to see what they look like without his guidance a week after giving up a handful to the Gunners.

A potent Leicester City side could have its way on Sunday and I’ll be shocked if the OVER doesn’t hit in this one.

Prop

Andrew: Arsenal to win both halves (+135)

Yeah, I’m putting a bunch of eggs in the Arsenal basket this week as I’ll focus on this game for my prop bet as well.

I like the fact that the Gunners will be brimming with confidence off the rout at Goodison and will look to keep up with the rest of the top five. Furthermore, they’ve won all four of their games at the Emirates and of those four wins, they won both halves three times.

Swansea is a decent side and I feel they’re much better than their 15th-place standing would otherwise dictate, but I like the Gunners to dominate this game.

Rob: Crystal Palace vs West Ham Exact Score 0-0 (+900)

This is going to be just an awful football match and it deserves a scoreline that truly represents how much I care about either of these teams.

Crystal Palace came back down to earth last weekend just a week removed from its stunner against Chelsea and there’s really nothing to like about this club right now. They were just beaten 4-1 by Bristol City – yes, Bristol City – in EFL Cup action and I just can’t see them scoring on Saturday.

Coming off a 3-0 home defeat at the hands of a newly promoted Brighton side, I don’t like the Hammers much more than I do the Eagles and I’ll take a poke at 0-0 with 9/1 odds in a match this terrible any day.
